✨✧ VariousCreative Music Studio Archive Selections Vol 2 (3CD set) ... CD
Planet Arts, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of avant jazz from the legendary Creative Music Workshop in Woodstock – plus a handful of equally great globally-oriented projects too! The 3CD package is overflowing with great music from the vaults of Creative Arts – and is worth it enough for the 2CDs' worth of jazz material, which really capture that moment when the loft jazz scene of New York was reaching out with even wider aspirations – to influence generations of jazz around the globe in years to come. CD1 features some incredible small group tracks – including a duet between Anthony Braxton on reeds and Marilyn Crispell on piano; a trio with Kalaparusha on reeds, John Betsch on drums, and Juma Sultan on bass; a piano duet between Frederic Rzewksi and Karl Berger; a quintet led by altoist Lee Konitz with Berger on vibes and piano; and a trio with Paul Motian on drums, David Izenzon on bass, and Charles Brackeen on reeds. CD2 features larger ensembles, equally great – one led by Don Cherry on flutes, trumpets, and piano – with Collin Walcott on sitar and Nana Vasconcelos on percussion; another group led by Baikida Carroll on trumpet and featuring Marilyn Crispell on piano; and the last a group with Gerry Hemmingway on drums, plus Don Davis on alto and Crispell on piano. CD2 features work that's in a similar vein, but with more world influences – including one track with Paulo Moura on reeds and Trilok Gurtu on tabla; another with Walcott on sitar, Vasconcelos on percussion, and Gurtu on tabla; another with Karl Berger on vibes and Aiyb Dieng on percussion; and one more with Berger on balafon, Gurtu on tabla, Vasconcelos on berimbau, and Ismet Siral and Steve Gorn on flutes. A heck of a lot of great music for the price – all previously unreleased! CD

Christian Hermann & Michael SchmidtWii Love Arts – A Compendium Of Projects Inspired By Wii (hardcover) ... Book
Kehrer (Germany), 2007. New Copy ... $1.99 70.00
Nintendo's Wii gaming system has gone onto transform the role of the TV screen in household activity in the past decade or so – with a legacy that's also touched the world of visual arts as well! This book is a lavish, oversized art book that presents a range of creative work inspired by the Wii – paintings, photographs, drawings, street art, and even creative process that draw plenty from Wii and help transform the planet with an eye trained on the platform! Images are quite far from any sort of easy videogame references – and the full color book vividly moves far far past any Nintendo roots – and almost acts as a standalone volume on especially creative talents in the global underground. Book is very heavy, full color, 224 pages, oversize, and even comes with a special bookmark that's like the handle of a Wii controller! Book

Diga Rhythm BandDiga ... LP
Round/United Artists, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
One of Mickey Hart's first forays into the world music genre – and way way better than his later Planet Drum recordings! The Grateful Dead's drummer plays with, and produces, an all-percussion ensemble that includes tablas, marimbas, talking drums, timbales, and congas. All the melody parts are handled by marimba, vibes and talking drums, but there does seem to be some overdubbed guitar on a couple tracks – and although the rhythms are firmly rock-based and the group is quite large, there's a lot of spacious moments and atmosphere in the polyrhythmic grooves – more than enough so to give the record strong appeal to listeners with more globally-tuned ears. 5 tracks in all, most fairly long – "Sweet Sixteen", "Magnificent Sevens", "Razooli", "Tal Mala", and "Happiness Is Drumming". LP, Vinyl record album
(Ryko reissue on clear vinyl.)

Sun RaSpace Is The Place – Original Soundtrack (180 gram colored vinyl) ... LP
Sutro Park, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 27.99
One of the weirdest records Sun Ra ever made – music to accompany the strange film Space Is The Place – which itself was an odd mixture of science fiction and blacksploitation-type action! The sounds here are sometimes in the usual Arkestra mode – wonderfully exotic rhythms mixed with freewheeling jazz solos – but other parts seem to follow more of a soundtrack-styled need – and include some bolder action riffs, spare scene-setting moments, and even some strong vocal themes. Titles include "Watusa", "Calling Planet Earth", "Mysterious Crystal", "Outerspaceways Incorporated", "Cosmic Forces", "Satellites Are Spinning", and a version of "Space Is The Place". 74 minutes of music in all – and reissued here on vinyl in a limited version! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Free Pop Electronic ConceptNew Exciting Experience ... CD
Palette/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing album of funky late 60s electronics – one we'd rank right up there with the work of Pierre Henry and Michel Colombier! As with their work, the music here starts from more avant garde sources – particularly the wave in postwar electronic styles and musique concrete – but it also adds in some hipper, groovier rhythms that are much more in a mod late 60s mode – very soul-based styles of instrumentation that mix together with the electronics wonderfully! The core pair behind the record are Antonio and Fernando Lameirinhas – but they're also getting some help from jazzmen Stu Martin and Scott Bradford – the former of whom plays some really wonderful drums on the set. There's an almost psychedelic feel to the album – especially given the length of some of the tunes – but thanks to a tightly rhythmic core at the bottom the tunes never get too out of hand as the jams roll on. Production is great too – with plenty of odd effects and echo – and titles include "Chewing Gum Delerium", "Planetary Gospel", "FPET No 1", "Comos Rhythms", and "Pish Pshaw". CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeI Demoni Di San Pietroburgo ... CD
Sugar/Digitmovies (Italy), 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful late work from Ennio Morricone – penned for a film that was one of his last few soundtrack projects on this planet! The music matches some of the maestro's best period pieces from decades back – done with a style that's got some traces of the time in which the story is set, but always delivered with a personal approach that's pure Morricone – especially once things get going, and the instrumentation is even more spacious and moody! Violin is one of the main solo instruments, but there's also a few nice trumpet parts too – and titles include "New Attack", "The Publisher", "For My Father", "On The River", "The Flag", "Shot", "Pursued", and "For Three". CD
(Limited edition of 1000 copies.)
