There's a bold sense of brilliance that signals the start of this album right from the very first note – maybe a quality that comes from the depth of leader Rob Brown's work on the alto, hitting here with maybe more of the fire of an avant tenor – or maybe a sound that comes from the ...

Echoes of Henry Cow – but very jazzy ones, too – as this combo uses songs of the famous British group as a launching point for more lyrical improvisation, topped nicely with a range of work on flutes from group leader Michel Edelin! John Greaves is a guest on a few tracks, and delivers ... (Jazz) read moreCD

About January 17, 2020 (delayed)
Two electric guitars, dancing beautifully together in a set of free improvisations – tunes that run from just over two minutes in length, to past the ten minute mark – really letting us hear the imagination that drives the duo! Morris sounds familiar, but he's also maybe got a bit more ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Out Of Stock
Great work from a group who somehow manages to be free and tuneful at the same time – awash in unusual sounds, but in a way that's also very organic – a fascinating combination of the guitar of Mary Halvorsen, cornet and flugelhorn of Taylor Ho Bynum, piano of Benoit Delbeq, and drums ...

A quartet of musicians that we're not sure we've heard together before, but who instantly seem to find a great way to relate – effortlessly exploring similar sonic territory together, with a sense of sympathy that often makes it difficult to hear what instrument is contributing what sound to ...

A fantastic performance from trombonist George Lewis and saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell – two AACM masters working together here in classic formation, but with a few great surprises along the way! One of those surprises is the Voyager – a computer-driven piano that was taught ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A recent live performance from underground alto genius Jemeel Moondoc – but, like all of his albums in recent decades, a set that feels much more like a lost 70s classic overall! Tracks are long, spiritual, and beautifully building – with a perfect quartet that features Matthew Shipp ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Saxophone and drums – but used in a way that's very different than you might expect! Larry Ochs has always been a wonderfully evocative player – both as a solo player, and as a member of Rova Sax Quartet – and here, he blows both tenor and sopranino alongside the drums and ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Map Of Liberation ... CD Rogue Art (France), 2019. New Copy ...
A very hip trio, one that features three of the greatest female improvisers of the past 30 years – Joelle Leandre on bass, Myra Melford on piano, and Nicole Mitchell on flute, alto flute, and piccolo! The work is maybe more often in the territory of Leandre and Melford's earlier material ... (Jazz) read moreCD
