✨✧ Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeBack Together Again (plus bonus disc) ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2004. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
A masterful set from two legends – Fred Anderson on sax, and Hamid Drake on drums and percussion! It's hard to imagine a more fulfilling 70 minutes of work from these two players than you'll find here. Anderson's sinewy, rolling lines meld beautifully with Drake's propulsive pounding. The boys build a great sound here, too – so much so that's you can scarcely believe that it's was all done in a duet setting. Nice, nice stuff! Tracks include "Leap Forward", "Black Woman", "Back Together Again", "Losel Drolma", "A Ray From The One", "Louisiana Strut", "Know Your Advantage" and more. It comes with a great bonus CD ROM disc with a lot of live studio and documentary footage, a couple of interviews and much more! CD

Isotope 217Utonian Automatic ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1999. Used ... $3.99
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

TortoiseIt's All Around You (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
Wow, 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.

✨✧ Sticks & StonesShed Grace ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A new one from Chicago's Sticks & Stones, featuring free scene mainstay Josh Abrams on bass, Matana Roberts on alto saxophone, clarinet and some percussion, and Chad Taylor on drums. Each member penned a couple tracks, including Abrams's title track, "The Refusal" and "So Very Cold", Matana's "Veatrice" and "430", and Taylor's "Wordful" and "Wonder Twins". The trio also takes a short turn on Monk's "Skippy", a really great straight up avant garde jazz take of Fela's "Colonial Mentality", and Billy Strayhorn's "Ishifran". This album features a very nicely uncluttered production aesthetic, and it suits the album's feel very, very well! CD

✨✧ TortoiseTortoise ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1993. Used ... 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! 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 densely-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
(Later pressing in the white cover with green print, missing the insert. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Glenn JonesThis Is The Wind That Blows It Out (red colored vinyl with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2004. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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)". LP, Vinyl record album
(First time on vinyl! Includes code for digital download.)

✨✧ TortoiseCatastrophist (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2016. New Copy ... 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".

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ TortoiseMillions Now Living Will Never Die (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Essential early-ish Tortoise – and among their best records ever! The bassy, heavily rhythmic aspect of their earlier recordings is as well intact and distinctive as it was on the benchmark self-titled album and earlier singles, but the group really branches out here and incorporates many more diverse elements. The 20+ minute opener "Djed" is as incredible as ever, starting with that brilliant bass line and some staticy effects, which is compelling enough, but soon the drums and organ kick in and it becomes what might be post rock's most epic instrumental anthem. The shorter tracks are hardly less vital. "A Survey", "The Taut And Tame", "Dear Grandma And Grandpa", "Glass Museum" and "Along The Banks Of Rivers". LP, Vinyl record album
