Angles 9Disappeared Behind The Sun ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
A really fantastic set from this Swedish nine piece ensemble – a record that's overflowing with brash performance and unbridled energy – adventurous, but never totally free – and always given the right sort of focus to make things come across with a tremendous amount of power! The feel is almost like a Moserobie Records take on a Charles Mingus style – and the lineup features Martin Kuchen on alto and tenor – who also composed the album's five long tracks – plus Magnus Broo on trumpet, Matthias Stahl on vibes, Goran Kajfes on cornet, Mats Aleklint on trombone, Eirik Hegdal on baritone, Alexander Zethson on piano, Johan Berthling on bass, and Andreas Werliin on drums. If you know any of those players at all, you can imagine the greatness of the group – on titles that include "Adror", "Equality & Death", "Pacemaker", "Disappeared Behind The Sun", and "Love Flee Thy House".

Black Bombaim & Peter BrotzmannBlack Bombaim & Peter Brotzmann ... LP
Lovers & Lollypops/Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
One of the headiest Peter Brotzmann albums we've heard in years, thanks to the sound of the Black Bombaim group from Portugal – who play with a guitar-heavy drive that almost takes us back to Brotzmann's Last Exit recordings of the 80s! The group play with a forward energy that takes off right from the start – heavy drums and full-on fuzzy guitar, plus some deep electric bass as well – all of which puts the reedman in a different setting than most of his recent projects, and one that reminds us just how well-suited he can be for such an experience! Some of the performances here really blow our minds all over again – with a tone that's strong, and incredibly clear – sometimes even more focused than on some of Brotzmann's other recent records, but still very free and sharp-edged overall. The album was recorded live in the studio, with a very jamming vibe! LP, Vinyl record album

Friends & NeighborsWhat's Wrong ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy ... $23.99
Friends & Neighbors come on even stronger here than on their previous record – with a blistering array of sharp-edged notes that really live up to the Ornette Coleman legacy that inspired their name! The group's incredibly deft – free, but never unstructured – able to turn on a dime, and draw the best from each individual member – while never making it feel like the quintet is being overshadowed by a larger ego or two. There's a sympathy between the players that you don't always get on records like this – and although the performances are quite free, they have an intrinsic logic that makes them extremely powerful. Group features Andre Roligheten on tenor and clarinet, Thomas Johansson on trumpet, Oscar Gronberg on piano, Jon Rune Strom on bass, and Tollef Ostvang on drums – and titles include "Fool Pay", "Duality", "Nokken", "Melting Snow", "Friends", and "Jaguar".

Mats Gustafsson & Craig TabornLjubljana (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
A duet that's every bit as special as you might expect – a really wonderful meeting between pianist Craig Taborn and saxophonist Mats Gustafsson – both very well-matched players who seem to find a special sort of energy working with each other! Taborn's piano is as dark-tinged and angular as ever, but the way he spaces his performance is different in the extended improvisations on the set – and Mats is also a bit unusual here, too – blowing slide saxophone and baritone, and sometimes letting Craig direct the attack, then following with more subtle sounds. Other times have the pair both going off into really special sonic territory – far from music, and sometimes even far from traditional references to their instruments, too! Titles include "The Eyes Moving Slowly" and "The Ears Facing The Fantasies Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Jorgen Mathisen/Christian Meaas Svendsen/Andreas WMomentum ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
Layers of sound from this mighty heavy trio – saxophonist Jorgen Mathisen, bassist Christian Meaas Svendsen, and drummer Andreas Wildhagen! Side one features the blistering "Momentum" – a tune that's awash in these sheets of notes and textures from Jorgen on tenor – with maybe a bit of a break in the middle for the bass, before Mathisen then takes on a more pointed, spiritual journey on his horn! Side two features three shorter tracks – "Gaining", "Maintaining", and "Snake Ballad" – which have even more abstract sonic expression from the group! LP, Vinyl record album

Universal Indians & Joe McPheeSkullduggery (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2015. Near Mint- 2LP ... $29.99
Usually, when we hear the term "skullduggery", it means that someone's up to something bad – but here, it refers to something especially wonderful – a mighty meeting of the legendary Joe McPhee with a hip trio of overseas improvisers! The music is very open and powerful – almost back to the modes of Joe's earlier years – as his work on saxes and pocket trumpet open up in loft jazz style expressions – alongside more sax from John Dikeman, bass from Jon Rune Strom, and drums from Tollef Ostvang – the last three of whom make up the Universal Indians combo. The tracks are open and long – and filled especially with long runs from both horn players, punctuated nicely by the drums, and draped with deeper colors on the bass. Titles include "Yeah And", "Dewey's Do", "Wanted", and "Skullduggery". LP features two bonus tracks – "And Then" and "Encore". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sao Paulo/Chicago Underground with Pharoah SandersPharoah & The Underground – Primitive Jupiter ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The legendary Pharoah Sanders joins the Chicago/Sao Paulo Underground – and the result is one of the most striking records in years from everyone involved! Pharoah blows with this really open, searching sort of tone – wonderfully concerned with sound texture at points, and not nearly as straight a some of his other sessions in recent decades – definitely drawing strong inspiration from the freewheeling work of Rob Mazurek on cornet, flute, and electronics – with additional electronics from Guilherme Granado. Drummer Chad Taylor provides a firm grounding for the experiments – as does bassist Matt Lux – and the group gets some Sao Paulo touches touches Mauricio Takara, who also plays percussion as well. Tracks are all relatively long – cosmic and open, with a stunning mix of acoustic and electric elements – and titles include "Spiral Mercury", "Primitive Jupiter", "This One's For All Mothers", and "Asasumamehn" – two of which are not on the CD!

✨✧ CortexCortex Live! ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful group with a really bold feel – not the famous electric Cortez of the 70s – but a contemporary Norwegian ensemble with a wonderful sense of interplay! The quartet features Thomas Johansson on cornet, Kristoffer Alberts on reeds, Ola Hoyer on bass, and Gard Nilssen on drums – and they work together in this very fluid, well-hewn sort of style – expressively rich in sort of a post-Ornette Coleman sort of mode, but with especially strong individual moments from both Johansson and Alberts! The music builds wonderfully – moving with these confident shapes that take form quickly – at a level that's far from the mainstream, but also hardly free improvisation either. The four musicians really know each other perfectly – and have a richness of vision that's instantly apparent – on tracks that include "Cerebrum", "Endorphin", "Gray Matter", "Interlude", and "Closing".

✨✧ Starlite Motel (Alberts/Saft/Flaten/Nilssen)Awosting Falls (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A group who've got a pretty heavy sound for such a poetic name – hardly the lightness you'd expect from the stars – and instead a full-on wave of improvised sound from a mixed electric and acoustic lineup! The group features Kristoffer Berre Alberts on alto and tenor, Jamie Saft on lapsteel and organ, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on electric and acoustic bass, and Gard Nilssen on drums and electronics – all players who use their instruments here more with a sense of sound texture than musicality – sitting in a space between improvised jazz and noise, almost echoing some older New York downtown modes at times. Titles include "A Beautiful Nightmare", "The Art Of Silence", "The Prince Of The Face Of The Bull", "Suspended Veil", and "Minnewaska". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby ByrdI Need Help ... LP
King, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The stunning only album ever from the great Bobby Byrd – know to many as a longtime associate of James Brown, and finally getting his chance to shine here in the spotlight! Bobby was in the game before James, and always continued to change his groove in all the right ways with The Godfather – so this late 60s recording has Byrd coming across just like the best last James Brown material on King – with production from James, and backing from the same group too! There's loads of classics here that went onto become huge funky 45s over the years – and big sample cuts too – and titles include "I Need Help (I Can't Do It Alone) (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Soul", "My Concerto", "You Got To Have A Job (If You Don't Work, You Can't Eat)", and "Hang Ups We Don't Need (The Hungry We've Got To Feed)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – nice and clean! Cover has light surface wear and some seam splitting.)

VariousDisco Deutschland Disco – Disco, Funk, & Philly Anthems From Germany 1975 to 1980 ... LP
Marina (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
A German disco extravaganza – and a much-needed look at one of the strongest 70s club outlets next to the US! At first glance, the mix of Germany and disco might seem like an unlikely fit – but the German scene gave the world some key disco hits back in the 70s, as well as a huge variety of underground and lesser-known gems! The German approach was often a bit heavier on electronics than the American one – modes that were slightly pulled from prog and fusion that was bubbling around earlier in the decade, then fused into a cleaner, leaner, more rhythmic groove – and often topped with vocals in English, sometimes by American vocalists living overseas. Even the older German instrumentalists got in on the act – and the 70s saw both jazz and easy players hitting a disco groove with a new approach to their music! This great collection – put together by the folks who gave us The In Kraut – showcases all these aspects of the scene, and brings together a few hits with a lot more obscure gems – many of which we've never seen on this side of the Atlantic before. Titles include "Opium" by Peter Thomas, "Philodendron" by Veronika Fischer, "Illegal Toys" by Alfie Khan Sound Orchestra, "Lovemachine" by Supermax, "You've Got The Power (parts 1 & 2)" by Su Kramer, "Fashion Pack" by Amanda Lear, "Weider Zusammen" by Marianne Rosenberg, "Sex World" by Berry Lipman, "Get On The Funk Train (part 1)" by Munich Machine, "I Can't Move No Mountains" by James Last, "Treat Me Like A Woman" by Jackie Carter, "Feedback Brother" by Peter Herbholzheimer Rhythm Combination & Brass, "Disco Cisco" by Carsten Bohn's Bandstand, and "Love In A Sleeper" by Silver Convention. LP, Vinyl record album
