Sven Ake JohanssonKonzert Fur 12 Traktoren/Concert For 12 Tractors (pic disc) ... LP
Trost (Austria), 2016. New Copy ... $33.99
The title's no lie – as the record is a very unusual concert performed by 12 different tractors – in a mode that takes us back to some of the great sonic experiments of the early 20th Century – like the industrial symphony performed by a Soviet city, or the legendary Art Of Noises treatise on sound! Sven Ake Johansson's no pretender here – as he's got a long legacy in creative improvised music, and turns that heritage towards a dozen tractors who all work together in a mixture of solo sounds and larger ensemble rumblings – all without any other instrumental accompaniment at all! Definitely more of an art record than a jazz record – but a great one at that, and presented on a super-heavy, single-sided picture disc that very much fits the music within.

Max RoachM'Boom ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A later percussion ensemble album by Max Roach – one done in the style of some of his earlier 60s percussion experiments, but with a fuller scope, and a more serious feel overall. The ensemble was first formed in 1970, but recorded here with a very ambitious tone as part of Columbia's classical/jazz crossover experiments of the late 70s – with percussionists that include Omar Clay, Roy Brooks, Fred King, Ray Mantilla, Warren Smith, Freddie Waits, and Joe Chambers. Titles have a variety of styles – some more tribal, some more jazz-based, and others with almost a 20th century avant feel. Tunes include "Onomatopoeia", "Glorious Monster", "January V", "Caravanserai", "Rumble In The Jungle", and "Epistrophy". (Jazz, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Univers ZeroUnivers Zero ... LP
Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
A seminal release from the French scene of the late 70s – issued by this important group who were kind of post-prog, post-free jazz – but worked in a surprising blend of both! At some level, Universe Zero is an attempt to take 20th Century modes of European composition into the freer space of a small group – especially a younger one like this – and you can definitely hear some larger sonic ideas at play, most directly in the group's use of bassoon, violin, and viola – but also in the way they work with a knowledge of unusual tones and modern phrasings, but perform with more of a spontaneous, collaborative energy. Electric guitar takes equal space alongside harmonium and spinet – and the all-instrumental approach is almost a backward link between prog and avant modernism – but one that wasn't even there in the first place! Titles include "Ronde", "La Faulx", "Malais", "Doctor Petiot", "Complainte", and "Carabosse". (Rock, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AMMAMMMusic 1966 ... LP
Elektra/Black Truffle (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Harry BertoiaComplete Sonambient Collection (11CD set) ... CD
Sonambient/Important Records, 1970s. New Copy 11 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing music from Harry Bertoia – a sculptor, but one who was equally concerned with sound as he was with material structures! Most of Bertoia's objects were designed to be as musical as they were structural – often created of metal, and designed to create sound – either through the interaction of an individual, or the force of nature itself – as can be heard in a very cool Bertoia sculpture in downtown Chicago, which plays different sounds, depending on the strength of the wind! Bertoia self-released albums during the 70s – featuring his own sculptures, in "performance" – often with sounds that were somewhere between the percussive compositions of Lou Harrison, and the more organic qualities of the work of Harry Partch – both key contemporaries that Harry could stand alongside equally. This very cool box presents eleven of the album's on Bertoia's Sonambient label – all remastered, in mini LP-style sleeves, along with a 100 page booklet of notes and essays. The whole thing's beautiful – and a long-overdue testament to one of the most unique American artists of the 20th Century! CD

✨✧ Egisto MacchiIl Deserto/Pittura Contemporaneo – Pittura Moderna No 1 & 2 (3CD set) ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1975. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A really special set – one that features three full albums of rare work from Italian sound library composer Egisto Macchi! First up is Desert – a sound library set, but one that's way more than just a batch of short cues or funky instrumentals – and instead, a richly complicated work from Egisto Macchi that might stand perfectly alongside some of the most compelling experimental sides from Italy in the 70s – especially music on the Cramps label! The tracks here are all quite long, and very conceptual – definitely scored in a way that lives up to the desert in the title (also reflected in the sand-colored cover) – with a mix of odd percussion, unusual string tunings, and all these other sounds filtered through the mix to create this very evocative pastiche of elements – almost with an electronic feel at times, although we think most elements are acoustic – and spun over long passages that include "Il Sahara", "Cammelli", "L'Eco Delle Gole", "Suone Per Un Rito", "Ghibli", and "Sabbia Mobile". Next are the three albums in the Pittura Moderna series – all dedicated to modern art in the 20th Century, with individual tracks that are based either on a specific artist, or a style of work – all with musical references to match! There's some moments that are strongly in the territory of Macchi's more avant, outside compositions – those darker tones that have made him the stuff of legend over the years – with odd tones, offbeat woodwinds, and lots of unusual soundshapes that are almost visual in the way they come across – clearly a great illustration of Egisto's genius in scoring. The whole thing's very different than you'd expect if you only know the more playful or funky sides of sound library material – and each track is relatively long, with amazing use of instruments that include piano, vibes, saxophone, and cello. Titles include "Mondrian", "Kandinsky", "Impressionismo", "Chagall", "Optical", "Arte Cinetica", "Lucio Fontana", "Expressionismo Pragmatico", and "Pop Art 1a Parte". (Sound Library, Out Sound) CD

✨✧ Pierre HenryOdyssee (10CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/1982/Late 2000s. New Copy 10 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A really well-titled collection – given that it features the most important steps in the long musical journey of Pierre Henry – easily one of the most important electronic musicians of the 20th Century! The package offers a heck of a lot of amazing music for the price – and is very heavy on Henry's crucial 60s recordings – including both his funky analogue grooves, and his much more abstract sonic compositions! Much of this material has been issued over the years, but never in a package this complete – and the depth of the sounds here is stunning – a set that should be given as a textbook to anyone who ever thinks about making any sort of electronic music. Works include "Messe De Liverpool (1967)", "Pierres Reflechies (1982)", "Coexistence (1958)", "Mouvement Rhythm Etude (1970)", "La Noire A Soixante/Granulometrie (1967)", "Variations Pour Une Porte Et Un Soupir (1963)", "Le Voyage (1962)", "Futuristie (1975)", "Messe Pour Le Temps Present (1967)", "Le Xeme Remix (1998)", "Envol (2010)", "L'Art De La Fugu Odyssee (2011)", "Pulsations (2007)", and the previously unreleased "Le Fil De La Vie", which features cool shakuhachi!
