AMMAMMMusic 1966 ... LP
Elektra/Black Truffle (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... About January 1, 2018 (delayed)
Noisy brilliance from AMM – one of the most important avant acts of the 60s – and an incredible bridge between jazz, psych, and 20th Century classical worlds! The group were a powerhouse on the London scene of the middle of the decade – reportedly a huge influence on Pink Floyd, too – and all these many years later, there's hardly been a record to match the power of this amazing debut – a record that was even more equally amazingly released by Elektra Records on its first pressing! These guys may have made the most noise anyone had in the studio for this set – and that even includes the Velvet Underground, and any 60s electronic musician too – and the legendary lineup features Cornelius Cardew on piano, cello, and transistor radio; Lou Gare on tenor and violin; Eddie Prevost on drums, xylophone, bells, and cymbals; Keith Rowe on guitar and transistor radio; and Lawrence Sheaff on cello, accordion, clarinet, and one more transistor radio. Titles include "Later During A Flaming Riviera Sunset" and "After Rapidly Circling The Plaza". LP, Vinyl record album

Philip GlassComplete Sony Recordings (24CD set) ... CD
Sony, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 24CD ... $89.99 119.98
A stunning collection of sounds from the legendary Philip Glass – a complete set of every single one of his recordings for Columbia Records – which is the label at which he did most of his important music! The set's a treasure trove of modernist musical moments – not just a blueprint for minimalist composition near the end of the 20th century, but also a showcase for the many different paths that mode followed over the years – from vocal performances, through solo moments, ensemble explorations, soundtracks, and more. The box features 24 CDs in all, each with mini LP-styled covers, plus all the original liner notes, more discographical notes, and even librettos for all of the operas. In addition to the three important operas – Einstein On The Beach, Satygraha, and Akhnaten – plus early albums like Glassworks, Dance Pieces, and The Photographer – and the soundtrack to Naqoyqatsi, Solo Piano, Dance Nos 1 to 5, Itaipu, Passages, Organ Works, and more – as well as a bonus CD of recent recordings. A beautiful package – and the only time these works have been presented completely together. CD

Ennio MorriconeDimensioni Sonore 1/Sound Dimensions 1 – Musiche Per L'Immagine E L'Immaginazione ... CD
RCA/GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
Fantastic sounds from Ennio Morricone – a rare album of more serious music done for RCA – very much in the darker spirit of his recordings with the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova! The music here is more avant compositional than some of Morricone's lighter soundtrack material – with especially strong work on strings, showing the way that the maestro learned his sense of offbeat tones and phrasings from the 20th Century classical scene, which he then applied famously to some of his horror scores of the time! The music here definitely has qualities that match the spookier soundtrack 70s material from Morricone – especially his move to horror at the time – and as with just about all of his recordings, there's a fair bit of unusual sounds and elements that are extremely hard to peg in terms of their sources. Titles include "Radiazioni", "Rifrazione", "Fasi", "Proporzionale", "Anagramma", "Antitesi", and "Conduizone". (Sound Library, Out Sound) CD

Schoenberg/Webern/BergVienna 1908 to 1914 – Antal Dorati/London Symphony Orchestra ... LP
Mercury, 1962. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Conductor Antal Dorati earned his reputation on a range of vivid, colorful recordings with the Minneapolis Symphony – but he could also be a committed modernist when he wanted, as you'll hear on this fantastic set with the London Symphony from 1962! The works here represent some of the sharpest new currents for orchestra in the early 20th century – and Dorati responds wonderful to the challenges, which include as much energy in the rhythms as in the tonal colors. Performances include "Five Pieces For Orchestra (Op 16)" by Schoenberg, "Five Pieces For Orchestra (Op 10)" by Webern, and "Three Pieces For Orchestra (Op 6)" by Berg. (Classical, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove maroon label stereo pressing – RFR-1/RFR-1 – in beautiful shape!)

VariousExpo 1 ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
Call it neo-classical, post-classical, or whatever you want – there's been a heck of a lot of new sounds and styles happening in the world of "serious" music – recordings that include both newly experimental work from artists who'd previously played in a more conventional mode – and other sounds from composers who finally are getting their due! This collection presents a nicely expansive overview of this great wave of music – surprisingly large in its array, but maybe linked at times by a new sense of understatement – a mode that's different than the bolder sounds of 20th Century classical, and more spacious than late century minimalism – although some of the artists here could certainly be tied to that world too. Most tracks are pulled from the Deutsche Grammophon catalog of the past decade or so – and really resonate well together, given the strength of the selection. Titles include "Clock Winder" by Hilary Hahn and Hauschka, "Vladimir's Blues" by Max Richter, "Marmont Overture" by Chilly Gonzales, "Eclipse" by Thomas Enhco, "Schlaflied" by Sven Helbig, "432" by Joep Beving, "Signals" by Lambert, "Berlin By Overnight" by Max Richter, "Rolling" by Hans Joachim Roedelius and Arnold Kasar, "Portrait Gallery" by Luke Howard, "Letters Of A Traveller" by Olafur Arnalds, "In A Landscape" by John Cage, "Etude No 5" by Philip Glass, and "Duet" by Steve Reich.

✨✧ MoondogMoondog – The Viking Of Sixth Avenue ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue tribute to the legendary Moondog – one of the true visionaries of American music in the 20th Century! Moondog got his starts as a blind musician working the streets of New York at the end of the 40s, but he did so (as you'll note on the cover photo) with a range of unusual instruments of his own invention, and in a minimal, rhythmic style that linked together primitivism with higher musical ideals. Moondog's often been called "the father of minimalism" – and while his experiments of the 50s prefaced the work of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and others, his work was also much more personal, and had an earthy intensity that's still tremendously powerful even decades later! This collection is one of the first to dip into the earliest of Moondog's recordings – his recordings for the Mars, SRC, Brunswick, and Moondog labels – which are presented here alongside selected tracks from his albums for Epic and Prestige, also of similar vintage. Nearly all the tracks here offer a very primitive blend of percussion that's sometimes mixed with unusual woodwind or stringed instruments – nearly all of Moondog's own invention – and the package also features some great notes on his long career, plus some photos that are as gripping as the music itself! Titles include "Down Is Up", "Big Cat", "Bumbo", "Rimshot", "Rabbit Hop", "Instrumental Round", "Be A Hobo", "Dog Trot", "Oasis", "2 W 46th Street", and "Why Spend The Dark Night With You". LP, Vinyl record album
