FlugelschlagFlugelschlag – Music For 3 Grand Pianos, 3 Composers, 3 Pianists ... CD
ObliqSound (Germany), 2002. Used ... $3.99
'Heady work from Flugelschlag – a German word that means "piano beating", or something like that! The group features 3 musicians all working on grand pianos – with some occasional slight additional effects and production bits, but often just the pianos on their own – stretching out in wide walls of sound. The trio have an ear for the groove – and although the tunes get a bit arty at times, they've also got a rhythmic quality that lends itself well to the organically grooved sound of the Obliq label – and has worked especially well on the group's remix projects. Titles include "Eins", "Mendiani", "Tribute To Baba", "Petit Casino", "Improvisation 3", "Toccata For Willy &Steve", and "Drei Chinesen Suite". (Out Sound, New Grooves) CD

JazztronikNu Balance ... CD
Flower (Japan), 2005. Used ... $9.99
A great little introduction to the work of Jazztronik – a CD that offers up some of their best bits from recent years, plus a new track especially for the set – all in one special oversize package! At some moments, the group's working in an all-out blend of rhythm and life – with the soaring dancefloor style of their key singles in recent years. But at other points, they're kicking back in a beautifully gentle mode – letting bossa and jazz styles direct their groove, and focusing more on sweet keyboard lines, mellow percussion, and an overall sense of sound that's really great. As always, keyboardist Ryota Nozaki is at the head of the project with his beautifully sensitive approach to recording – and the set also features vocals by the lovely Bebe, plus singers Kaori and Yurai as well. Titles include "Zoology", "Inner Flight", "Dizzin", "For A Long Time After", "Le Modele Aux Trois Visages", and 2 versions of "Feel The Air". CD
