✨✧ Bill Dixon & Exploding Star OrchestraBill Dixon & Exploding Star Orchestra ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2008. Used ... $6.99
A huge step forward for the mighty, expansive Exploding Star Orchestra – having recruited free jazz trumpet titan Bill Dixon as a band member and featured composer, if not the de facto leader – on this incredible second album for Thrill Jockey! The previous Exploding Star Orchestra set balanced a fiery, unpredictable intensity with a 70s style pulp soundtrack groove – while this one has more delicate and sublime moments at the outer edges, while ratcheting up the intensity all the more when the spirit hits! The group is made up of mainstays from the genre defiant Chicago scene – with group harbinger Rob Mazurek on coronet, Nicole Mitchell on flute, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Jeff Parker guitar, Jim Baker on piano, Jason Adasiewicz on vibes and tubular bells, Matthew Lux on bass, Jon Herndon on drums, Damon Lock with a spoken text read, and others. Heavy, spacious and truly beautiful! Titles include 3 long pieces that add up to over an hour all together, with the Dixon compositions "Entrances/One" and "Entrances/Two", and the killer centerpiece "Constellations For Innerdelight (For Bill Dixon)" composed by Rob Mazurek.

Isotope 217Utonian Automatic ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1999. Used ... $5.99
Another superb blend of spacey jazz and progressive instrumental musings, touched with a bit of 70s Miles, and served up with excellent production and the usual high level of standards you'd expect from Jeff Parker, Rob Mazurek, Dan Bitney, John Herndon, and Matt Lux. Proof that Chicago is still one of the most exciting points on the globe – and filled with nice cuts like "Solaria", "New Beyond", "LUH", and "Audio Champion". CD

Glenn JonesThis Is The Wind That Blows It Out (red colored vinyl with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2004. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A post millennium folk guitar modern classic from Glenn Jones! Inspired by Fahey, Basho and other heroes of that caliber, but it's a really excellent, high caliber modern take on the style. Jones is an incredibly skillful player, but never overdoes things, leaving subtle spaciousness in play in really effective ways. Includes "This Is The Wind That Blows It Out", "Sphinx Unto Curious Men", "Friday Nights With", "Fahey's Car", "Linden Avenue Stomp", "Nora's Leather Jacket" and "One Jack Rose (That I Mean)".

✨✧ TortoiseIt's All Around You ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2004. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Man, this is SO not the Tortoise that first set the underground aflame in the early 90s – the group has evolved and opened up in ways we never would have expected. With It's All Around You it's emerged with an airy, open, stargazing set of tracks that resemble the languid atmosphere of Tangerine Dream as much as they do early post rock! Gone, for the most part from early Tortoise is that strong, rubbery electric bass groove and tightly thudding live drum sound. It's All Around You retains the bright vibes and sputtering electronics of the TNT album, and the out front, almost rock & roll guitar lines of the Standards album – and adds an ever present, ambient synthesizer bubble of sound to surround the thing. It's all so catchy, too, and almost sunny. If Tortoise hasn't really broken any new ground this time, it's only because they're the ones who broke it in the first place. Tracks include "It's All Around You", The Lithium Shifts", "Crest", "Stretch", "Dot/Eyes", "By Dawn", "Five Too Many" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

TortoiseLazarus Taxon (3CDs & DVD) ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1990s/2000s. Used 3CD&DVD ... $14.99
A massive collection of Tortoise rarities – including work from non-US releases, tour-only EP material, compilation tracks and more – plus the long out-of-print, heavily sought after Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters remix album – all at a great price! You really couldn't ask for a better collection of errata from the celebrated group. It features some of the best work the collective and individual members (Jeff Parker ('97-present), John Herndon, John McEntire, Doug McCombs, Dan Bitney, David Pajo ('95-'97) and Bundy Brown ('91-'94)) have ever done! Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters – featuring adventurous re-imaginings by such a diverse roster as Casey Rice, Steve Albini, Brad Wood, Jim O'Rourke and Mike Watt – is possibly the face value boon of the collection given it's known "legendary lost" status, but pretty much everything here is just as tough to find, if not literally impossible! The set contains 3CDs and a DVD, which features most of Tortoise's music videos and extensive rare live performance footage. Frankly, we'd have paid $20 just for a CD single with "Gamera", and that's just the kick off track on disc 1! Other tracks on disc 1 include "Blackbyrd", "Sex For Elizabeth", "To Day Retrieval", "Whitewater", "Autumn Sweater", "A Grape Dope", "Blue Station" and more. Disc 2 includes "Madison Area", "TNT (Nobukazu Takemura remix)", "Why We Fight", "CTA", "Adverse", Cliff Dweller Society" and more. Disc 3 (Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters) includes the tracks "Alcohall", "Your New Rod", "Cobwebbed", "The Match Incident", "Tin Cans", "Not Quite East Of The Ryan", "Cornpone Brunch" and more. DVD includes the videos for "Salt The Skies", "Dear Grandma And Grandpa", "Seneca", and more, plus live footage from Toronto in '96, the Deutches Jazz Festival in '99, Chic-A-Go-Go in '05 and the Burn To Shine project in '04.

✨✧ DirectionsDirections In Music ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best records of the post-post rock 90s – the masterful Directions In Music from Bundy K Brown, Doug Sharin and James Warden – a record that will sound fresh and insistent for as long as anyone's listening to it, standing up to the passing of time as well as any other instrumental avant rock album of the 90s, or earlier! 8 untitled pieces with guitar, bass and drums at the core of the sound, but with subtle, angular touches and textural manipulation adding depth without it ever getting too arty or difficult just for the sake of it – there's not a unnecessary particle or element to be found – and it's mesmerizing all the way.

✨✧ TortoiseCatastrophist (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album in years from Tortoise – again stretching out creatively in fascinating ways, some subtle and others obvious – and all of it compelling! The Catastrophist is partly inspired by work Tortoise was commissioned to produce by the City Of Chicago, material that could be used in collaboration with the city's great jazz and improvistional musical community. For The Castastrophist record, these musical building blocks were pulled back into Tortoise-ville, where the band could do their diverse and distinctive thing. Compelling drums and percussion, creative guitar and bass grooves, and divergent keyboard textures make up the connective tissue – but it's a pretty diverse sound overall! Two of the more fascinating stylistic departures have vocals – a bass-y, synth-steeped cover of the early 70s David Essex hit "Rock On", and the moody, melodic "Yonder Blue" with Georgia Hubley of Yo La Tengo. Other titles include"The Catastrophist', "Ox Duke","Gopher Island", "Shake Hands With Danger", "The Clearing Fills", "Gesceap", "Tesseract", "Hot Coffee" and "At Odds With Logic".

✨✧ TortoiseTortoise (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Their first one, now a classic in the once-burgeoning "post rock" genre (much as we hate using that term) – and it's hands down one of best and most influential albums to come out of Chicago in the early 90s! A spare, rhythmic blend of moody grooves laid down by 2 basses, 2 drummers, and a host of other instruments. This is the one that still featured Bundy "K for Killer" Brown, and overall, it feels more like the work of a core band than some of the more atmospheric and thickly-layered Tortoise records to come. Includes "Magnet Pulls Through", "Night Air", "Ry Cooder". "Tin Cans & Twine", "Flyrod", "On Noble", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BrokebackIllinois River Valley Blues ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the warmest, best instrumental music yet from Doug McCombs's Brokeback – maybe a bit less abstract than most earlier Brokeback efforts – but just as alluring, even while working with more a immediately engaging sound. McCombs is on guitars here with multi-instrumentalist James Elkington, Pete Croke on bass and Arief Sless-Kitain on drums & percussion, and occasional atmospheric vocals by Amalea Tshild. Illinois River Valley Blues manages to bring in more identifiable jazz, rock and soundtrack-y influences, while still wholly distinctive – and the way McCombs is inspired by lesser traveled points on the map of his (and our own) home state has always been a fascinating aspect of his work in Brokeback – never more so than on this one. Includes "Ride Ahead And Light The Way For Me", "Cairo Levee", "The Canyons Of Illinois", "Andalusia, IL"., "Spanish Venus", "Ursula", "The Stroller's Memorial", "Night Falls On Chillicothe" and more.

✨✧ Chicago Underground DuoIn Praise Of Shadows ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
Another fine effort from the Chicago Underground Duo – multi-instrumentalists Chad Talyor and Rob Mazurek – and like the duo's earlier work on Thrill Jockey, it's a wonderful listen, that traipses through elements of Don Cherry-like jazz experimentation, and percussive, minimalist avant rock! The sound is uncategorizable in the best sense, and the duo has chops that devour most of their contempories. Another great one! Mazurek works on cornet, organ, celest, piano, harpsichord and more, and Taylor is drums, perussion, gongs vibe and more. Tracks include "In Praise Of Shadows", "Falling Awake", "The Glass House", "Cities Without Citadels", "Pangea", "Funeral Of Dreams" and "The Light Between". CD

✨✧ LamplightersLoving, Rocking, Thrilling – The Complete Federal Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent vocal group work by The Lamplighters – a less-remembered 50s outfit whose members later went onto greater fame in The Sharps and The Rivingtons! Most of the tracks on the set feature lead vocals by the amazing Thurston Harris – himself an important figure in R&B later in the decade – and all tracks on the set are from the group's King/Federal recordings, and are done at a level that easily match any other King vocal group recordings at the time! As with recordings by labelmates The Swallows, the backings on these sides is often very spare – in a way that lets the vocals carry most of the tunes, in a mode that's perfect if you really dig work with a strong focus on raw harmonies. The set features 28 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Rock & Thrill", "Be Bop Wino", "Crazy Times", "Give Me", "Turn Me Loose", "Yum Yum", "Bo Peep", "Roll On", "I Can't Stand It", "Ride Jockey Ride", "Hug A Little Kiss A Little", "Part Of Me", "I Used To Cry Mercy Mercy", and "Salty Dog".
