Kind of reminds us of some of the New York noise from the early 80s – with Nels Cline proficiently jamming away on guitar, and Bendian playing vibes and "fuzz vibes" in tight choppy modal lines with the group's proggish rhythm. Titles include "Drive", "Sanctuary" ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A much more contemplative album than usual from Swedish power trio Gush – one that features longer tracks built around slowly-evolving explorations of space, sound, and time. The trio of Mats Gustafsson reeds, Sten Standell piano, and Raymond Strid drums have been working together long ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Another bold stroke of genius from Ken Vandermark – one of the greatest living jazz musicians around, and a talent we're always proud to have living in our city! The Vandermark 5 somehow sound even more dynamic than before – working with a Mingus-like intensity, and hitting a sonic ... (Jazz) read moreCD

An oblique title, but aptly fitting for the enigmatic work of this great Chicago avant combo. Ken Vandermark leads the ensemble which features Kent Kessler, Jeb Bishop, Tim Mulvenna, and Mars Williams – and even though this CD was the group's first on Atavistic, they already play with an ...
