✨✧ Ken VandermarkResonance (10CD box set) ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 2009. New Copy 10 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music from reedman Ken Vandermark – 10 CDs' worth of music, recorded over a week's visit to Poland and The Ukraine in 2007! The package is surprisingly rich – not just sounds recorded for the sake of copious content, but a really diverse batch of music that has us more impressed than ever at Vandermark's ability to really play over a range of different styles of expression. Plus, the set demonstrates that his ability to lead larger groups of players is sharper than ever – as Vandermark interacts here with a shifting set of musicians that include some hometown favorites from Chicago, plus overseas talents as well – a lineup that includes Steve Swell on trombone, Dave Rempis on tenor and alto, Yuriy Yaremchuk on tenor and soprano, Mikolaj Trzaska on alto sax and bass clarinet, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Mark Tokar on bass, and both Tim Daisy and Michael Zerang on drums and percussion. The set captures the performances in their entirety – and the groupings shift throughout – a variety of small combos, plus some larger ensemble work as well. Brilliant stuff – and more proof that Vandermark's one of the most important jazzmen of our generation! CD

Eric DolphyMusical Prophet – The Expanded 1963 New York Studio Sessions (Iron Man/Conversations/unissued tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Resonance, Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 29.99
A fantastic package that finally gives these recordings their proper due – one that takes the cuts that were issued on the albums Iron Man and Conversations (plus a million cheapo packages over the years) – and restores them to their original mono, right from the tapes – then adds in 85 more minutes of never issued material! The tracks here are a perfect balance of Dolphy in his final year – with some spiritual jazz currents, but still a strong sense of swing – with a fantastic lineup that includes Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, Clifford Jordan on soprano, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Richard Davis on bass, and both JC Moses and Charles Moffett on drums – almost a who's-who of people who would go onto shape the face of jazz in years to come. Titles include "A Personal Statement", "Ode To Charlie Parker", "Iron Man", "Come Sunday", "Burning Spear", "Muses For Richard Davis", "Alone Together", "Love Me", and "Jitterbug Waltz" – plus a number of other different versions of tunes. 3CD set comes with a 100 page booklet – featuring photos, essays, and interviews with Sonny Simmons, Sonny Rollins, Nicole Mitchell, Henry Threadgill, and David Murray.

Bill EvansEvans In England – Live At Ronnie Scotts ... CD
Resonance, 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 18.99
Bill Evans at the end of the 60s – sounding really wonderful here in a set of unreleased live recordings from London! Bill's got the fantastic Eddie Gomez here on bass – who really gets plenty of space to stretch out on the long tracks that make up most of the set – and Evans himself is very well-recorded, with a strong ear for that sense of tonal color that makes just about every pianistic choice from this period feel so completely unique! Marty Morell is on drums – as ever, a master of understatement, which really lets us fall in love all over again with Gomez and Evans – and the set features 18 tracks all recorded at Ronnie Scott's club in Soho, in December of 1969 – titles that include "So What", "Very Early", "Sugar Plum", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Waltz For Debby", "Round Midnight", "Elsa", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "Turn Out The Stars", "Goodbye", "Re Person I Knew", and "Two Lonely People".

Bill EvansInner Spirit – The 1979 Concert At The Teatro General San Martin, Buenos Aires ... CD
Resonance, 1979. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 26.99
A very late live set from the legendary Bill Evans, and a great one too – a set that captures the pianist in all his spare, subtle glory – working with just the right sort of accompaniment from Marc Johnson on bass and Joe LaBarbera on drums! Both Marc and Joe are players who really helped Evans recapture some of his glory in the final years of his life – and Johnson's sense of soundshaping is especially great here, as he almost seems to wrap around Evans' beautifully sensitive notes on the piano – providing a very different sort of accompaniment than Bill had from bassist Eddie Gomez. Tracks are often nice and long, and have a really special sort of live magic – that sort that makes us feel like we can never get enough of Bill Evans concert recordings. Titles include "Nardis", "Minha", "Up With The Lark", "Letter To Evan", "Turn Out The Stars", "I Do It For Your Love", "MASH", "Laurie", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

Bill EvansSome Other Time – The Lost Session From The Black Forest ... CD
Resonance, 1968. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
Never-heard studio work from the great Bill Evans – not another one of those many (and great) live performances from overseas – but a well-conceived, beautifully recorded set of tracks that were done for MPS Records in their famous studios in the Black Forest! The group here is Evans sublime trio with the great Eddie Gomez on bass and a young Jack DeJohnette on drums – perfect players for completely reworking the sound of the jazz piano trio, with all the new ideas that Bill had bursting forth at the time – and this material is the only studio session by the group, recorded right after their famous live appearance at Montreux in 1968 (documented on a well-known album on Verve.) The set's a double-length outing – recorded with the kind of crisp, clear sound that MPS brought to its other classic piano albums of the time by artists like Hampton Hawes or Tete Montoliu. The whole thing's wonderful – and Gomez has a wonderful presence in the mix – as the trio really shines on titles that include "Wonder Why", "Green Dolphin Street", "These Foolish Things", "Walkin Up", "Turn Out The Stars", "Very Early", "You Go To My Head", "Lover Man", and "Baubles Bangles & Beads".

Stan GetzMoments In Time ... CD
Resonance, 1976. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
There may be a mountain of Stan Getz records on the market – but take it from us, this is definitely one that you need in your collection! The set presents material from a never-issued live recording – Stan on sublime, soulful tenor at the Keystone Korner in 1976 – working with a quartet that includes Joanne Brackeen on piano, Clint Houston on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – all ultra-hip players who set Stan up at a level that rivals the openly creative genius of studio albums like Sweet Rain or Captain Marvel, but with that special sort of snapshot that also marks his rare live material with Gary Burton too! The tracks were cut during the same week that produced the Getz/Gilberto 76 album, but the sound here is very different – not bossa, all jazz, and with that really inspired sense of soloing that Stan hit once he discovered Coltrane and the influence of that generation. Wonderful all the way through – with titles that include "Infant Eyes", "Summer Night", "Peace", "Con Alma", "Morning Star", and "The Cry Of The Wild Goose". CD

A set of unreleased duets between trumpeter Roy Hargrove and pianist Mulgrew Miller – two players who are definitely in harmony throughout the recording! Most tracks are nice and long – taken with an open, lyrical sensibility – one that's driven strongly by Miller's sense of imagination on the piano, and which seems to have Roy Hargrove maybe opening up a bit more than some of his studio recordings of the time! Titles include versions of "Triste", "Con Alma", "This Is Always", "I Remember Clifford", "Never Let Me Go", "Invitation", Ruby My Dear", "Ow", and "Just In Time" – plus a nice reading of the Blue Mitchell tune "Fungii Mama".

✨✧ Charles MingusNoddin Ya Head – The Lost Album From Ronnie Scott's (3CD set) ... CD
Resonance, 1972. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic lost work from Charles Mingus, from a very under-recorded time in his life – the same period in which he gave the world the seminal album Let My Children Hear Music! The setting's a live one – and as on some of Mingus' superb 60s concert sessions, there's a force and fire here that really surpasses the group's energy in the studio – long tracks that are filled with brilliant solo work, and handled by a sextet that includes Bobby Jones on tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, Jon Faddis on trumpet, John Foster on piano, and Roy Brooks on drums – a group with just the kind of young, imaginative horn players that Mingus always used to create a special sort of fire. Titles include the 19 minute "The Man Who Never Sleeps", the 30 minute "Mind Readers Convention In Milano", a 25 minute version of "Orange Was The Color Of Her Dress", and a 20 minute take on "Noddin Ya Head Blue" – plus a 35 minute jam on "Fables Of Faubus" and the shorter "Pops".

✨✧ Bill EvansLive At Ronnie Scott's – With Eddie Gomez & Jack DeJohnette ... CD
Resonance, 1968. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever release of a Bill Evans concert recorded at Ronnie Scotts in London – a place where he cut other work in other years, but maybe not at a level like this! The group is wonderful – Bill's budding relationship with the bassist Eddie Gomez, who was bringing a richness to the Evans piano that even previous players didn't reach – and who was also establishing the bass as as an important voice in the trio as Bill's piano! The drummer is Jack DeJohnette – a player who's just finding his voice in jazz, but a perfect choice for the others here – as the group handles material that includes "Waltz For Debby", "Very Early", "Emily", "Nardis", "Autumn Leaves", "Round Midnight", "Quiet Now", "Stella By Starlight", "Alfie", "Yesterdays", and "Turn Out The Stars". Features a 44 page booklet with previously unreleased photos, a new essay, and interviews with Eddie Gomez and Jack DeJohnette! CD

✨✧ Bill EvansMorning Glory – The 1973 Concert At The Teatro Gram Rex, Buenos Aires ... CD
Resonance, 1973. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
If you've ever wondered why the world needs so many Bill Evans recordings, then we've got a record to show you why – a sublime batch of live material recorded in Buenos Aries during the 70s, and one of those Evans dates that somehow seems extra-special – even amidst all of Bill's other wonderful records! There's a charm here that grabs us right from the start – those always-perfect, always-lyrical notes from the piano by Bill, richly soulful work on bass from Eddie Gomez, and these lightly dancing drums from Marty Morell that swing things in this gentle way that's incredible – the perfect balance of the Evans trio of the time – captured with a range of spontaneous expressions that show why the group was almost always even more amazing live than in the studio! Titles on this first volume include "Emily", "Re Person I Knew", "Who Can I Turn To", "My Romance", and "Two Lonely People" – and even if you've got Bill doing these tunes on other records, you've got to hear him handling them here. First-ever proper release of this material! CD

Resonance, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rare work from the legendary bassist Scott LaFaro – an obscure early 60s recording, made before his untimely early death! LaFaro's caught here in the company of pianist Don Friedman and drummer Pete LaRoca – both inventive modernists who really share his creative conception of a groove – a school of trio expression that's certainly informed by the late 50s influence of Bill Evans, but which also takes off in some wonderfully bright directions of its own! Titles include "Sacre Bleu", "Green Dolphin Street", "I Hear A Rhapsody", "Woody N You", and "My Foolish Heart". CD also features a bonus interview with Bill Evans from 1966 – and a 1985 Don Friedman track titled "Memories For Scotty". CD

✨✧ Sonny RollinsRollins In Holland – 1967 Studio & Live Recordings ... CD
Resonance, 1967. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Stunning rare material from Sonny Rollins – from a period when he wasn't doing that much work in the studio! The double-length package features Sonny blowing with a great sense of majesty and freedom – working in trio format that recalls his classic Vanguard recordings for Blue Note – but with Ruud Jacobs on bass and Han Bennink on drums – both great players who really help Rollins keep his modern edge! This isn't just a pickup overseas rhythm section – as Bennink is fantastic, at a point right before he was moving into free jazz – and Jacobs is a hell of a bassist who always makes a group sound great. The set features four studio tracks – "Blue Room", "Four", "Tune Up", and "Love Walked In" – plus more live material from the same month – long tracks "Love Walked In", "Four", "On Green Dolphin Street/There Will Never Be Another You", "Sonnymoon For Two", "They Can't Take That Away From Me/Sonnymoon For Two", and "Three Little Words". Also features a 100 page booklet – with rare photos, essays, and even an interview with Sonny! CD

✨✧ Bob JamesOnce Upon A Time – The Lost 1965 New York Studio Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Resonance, 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Rare material from pianist Bob James – and tracks that are a lot different than his funky Fender Rhodes albums of the 70s! The set is the first-ever issued of work recorded at Columbia University in 1965 – and the vibe is a bit like James' album for Mercury Records around the same time – a bit straight at point, but also with some surprising avant moments too – touches that make Bob part of that young generation of new experimental pianists, which would also include Steve Kuhn, Don Friedman, and the young Keith Jarrett! The first half of the set very much lives up to that mode – with a trio that features Larry Rockwell on bass and the great Bob Pozar on drums – on titles that include "Lateef Minor 7th", "Once Upon A Time", "Serenata", and "Variations". The second half is from later in the year, and is maybe more boppish overall – with a trio that features Bill Wood on bass and Omar Clay on drums – on titles that include "Indian Summer", "Solar", "Long Forgotten Blues", and "Airegin".

✨✧ Larry YoungLarry Young In Paris – The ORTF Recordings (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Resonance, 1964/1965. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really really wonderful work from legendary organist Larry Young – a set of rare recordings that we'd easily rank right next to our favorite Blue Note albums that Young cut as a leader! The sides here were done for French radio in the mid 60s, but they're hardly throwaway quickie tracks or lame live sides – and instead are superbly recorded selections that feature Young's organ in the company of really great musicians who include Woody Shaw on trumpet and Nathan Davis on tenor! The music is mostly from the ORTF studios, with impeccable sound – and tracks stretch out in that long, imaginative way that Young brought to his famous Unity album for Blue Note – a complete reworking of the role of Hammond in jazz, set to new modern modes, which are definitely emphasized by the work of Davis and Shaw. A number of tracks were recorded under the name of the Nathan Davis Quartet – with the addition of Billy Brooks on drums and a few more add in Sonny grey on trumpet and Jean-Claude Fohrenbach on tenor – both great players who join Shaw and Davis on some very extended tracks. The whole thing's wonderful – impeccable sound, great notes, and lost material that's a key addition to the too-small Larry Young catalog! Titles include "La Valse Grise", "Discotheque", "Trane Of Thought", "Luny Tune", "Larry's Blues", "Talkin About JC", "Black Nile", and "Beyond All Limits" – as well as a 20 minute reading of the classic "Zoltan". There's also even one track that has Larry playing some Monk-like piano – really great! LP, Vinyl record album

Punk rock from Poland – a set of tracks that have surprising resonance with UK work of the same time, served up here in a collection that might be one of the first times this music has made it out to the west! The core of the set features recordings from the early 80s – with singer/guitarist Ziemowit Kosmowski at the head of the group, and standing as the right sort of bold frontman to really send things over the top with a universal punk rock appeal – even if you can't understand the lyrics! Titles include "Prawo", "Do Wziecia", "Zmeczony", "Najemnik", and "Miejzki Park" – and the set also features two bonus live tracks from recent years. CD

Odin (Norway), 2022. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
You might know Ingebrigt Haker Flaten as one of the best improvising bassists on the contemporary global scene – but he's also a musician with larger concepts and ideas too, which he presents in this beautiful set of six different pieces that have more of a compositional vibe than some of his other work! Flaten's got a really great ear for sound here – not just the notes on the page, but the way the sonic presence of all the musicians come together in the studio – often working with a sense of resonance that takes us back to experimental sessions of the 70s, particularly that moment when artists were beginning to realize that creative use of the studio could enhance some new jazz conceptions! The rest of the lineup features Mette Rasmussen on alto, Atle Nymo on tenor and bass clarinet, Eivind Lonning on trumpet, Oddrun Lilja Jonsdottir on guitar, Oscar Gronberg on piano and keyboards, and both Olaf Olsen and Veslemoy Narvesen on drums and percussion – on titles that include "Brinken", "A La Lala Love You", "Chaos Pad", "Museumplein", "Hakkaran", and "Miles Ave".

David Grubbs & Nikos VeliotisHarmless Dust ... LP
Headz/Improved Sequence (Italy), 2005. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Beautifully minimal sounds from the duo of David Grubbs and Nikos Veliotis – Grubbs on piano and Hammond organ, and Veliotis on cello and e-bowed piano – all instruments that are used together in really wonderful ways! The first half of the set features piano and cello – the latter of which is often gently bowed, with these long-running tones that are very different than the spacious, well-chosen notes that come from Grubbs' piano – almost as if Veliotis is trying to create this subtle cloud of darkness to offset the brighter tones of the keys. That approach shifts slightly on the second half – as both the Hammond and bowed piano have a similar resonance together – making these very slow, subtle sonic shifts as the record moves on – creating some very nice tension near the end!

Sunset Blvd, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 25.99
Really great later recordings from Mississippi John Hurt – recorded in Washington DC, hence the title – and done in this stripped-down mode that really captures Hurt at his best! The tracks were all recorded for the Library Of Congress, mostly on the stage of the Coolidge Auditorium, but with an intimacy that's very different than some sort of live or festival situation – as there's great resonance in the guitar, almost making the whole thing feel as if was a project for Takoma Records! The set features a massive 40 tracks in all – and titles include "Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me", "Trouble I've Had All My Day", "Pera Lee", "Walking The Floor Over You", "Nobody's Dirty Business", "Candy Man", "Richland Woman Blues", "I Got Mine", "Good Morning Miss Carrie", "Poor Boy A Long Way From Home", "Blessed Be The Name", and "I'm Satisfied".

There's a gentleness here that we might not have heard back in the 70s – a quality that can make things more introspective, even when the pianist is exploring the rhythmic currents that have always defined his sound – working here on a Fazoli grand piano, which has a resonance that seems to further amplify every note and pianistic decision. Titles include "Dream Time", "Blues For A Hip King", "Sotho Blue", "For Coltrane", "Blue Bolero", "Nisa", "Genesis", and "Whoza Mtwana". LP, Vinyl record album

We're not entirely sure if the set was recorded underground, but there's definitely a sense of resonance that comes through in the performance – this echoey space that just seems to further intertwine the improvisations of the members of the group! Katarsis4 is an all-horn group – with Arminas Bizys on alto and baritone, Kazimieras Jusinskas on soprano and alto, Algridas Janonis on alto and hornpipe, and Danielus Pancerovas on baritone and alto – a blend of horns that makes for an amazing array of sounds and tones throughout the one long improvised performance on the set – sometimes all tied together, almost harmonizing – other times confronting each other in the open space of the performance – really beautiful, and in ways that are quite different than standard saxophone quartet material! There's an equal ear her for sonic possibilities as there is for music – and that makes for a hauntingly beautiful record throughout. CD

In addition to Pavone's viola, the group also features Aimee Neimann on violin, and Abby Swidler on both viola and violin, depending on the track – both musicians who add their voice to one track, along with Jessica – but mostly have this way of finding great sonic resonance together, with a quality that's both abstracting from the original modes of the instruments, yet never too far to make them sound unfamiliar.

In a way, there's a resonance between Taylor and Lovens that holds the whole thing together – sometimes Cecil's voice and Lovens' percussion ringing out – while free interplay takes place between the entire group, but really with a sense of patience that shows the way that things open up over the long time of the performance! The set features one long cut – "Desperados", improvised freely – and the album's title is from an enthusiastic statement by Steve Lacy after the concert. CD

Lina Tullgren & Alec Toku WhitingUnfamiliar Ceilings ... CD
Astral Spirits, 2022. New Copy ... $8.99 12.99
"Unfamiliar" is a good word to use here – as the sounds within are definitely that – some very different elements than you might expect from the violin of Lina Tullgren and koto work of Alec Toku Whiting! There's a lot of resonance in the recording, so that no matter how the stringed instruments are handled, you get a lot of tone, texture, and reverb – which, given the edgey way both instruments are handled, makes for a session that's very different than anything you'd expect to hear from just reading the cover! Some moments get a bit noisy, but those are balanced by more spacious, thoughtful sounds – augmented by work on electronics and pedals on one track from Ted Reichman. Titles include "47", "Polly Chainsaw", and "Every Finger An Eye". CD

Wolf VostellDe-coll/age Musik ... LP
Multhipla/Soave (Italy), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
A collection of work drawn from decades of creations by Wolf Vostell – a founding member of Fluxus and one of the more radical musicians of the 60s – although crucially ignored in wider discussions of creative music! Vostell works here in ways that illustrate his "de-collage" concept – a reversal of musical collages taking place in other realms of the avant garde, with subtraction as the driving feature over combination. And yet at a sonic level, these creations still have a resonance with some of the tape experiments and musique concrete of Vostell's generation – especially in his sense of texture – but that also may just be a coincidence, as may of these recordings feel like they're coming from live sources – as illustrated by the cover art images of broken glass, a field of vacuum cleaners, a guitar attached to a car door, and other unusual images!

Bennie WallaceDisorder At The Border ... CD
Enja/Justin Time (Canada), 2006. Used ... $5.99
A tribute to the music of Coleman Hawkins, but one that's got a vibe that's all its own – a sharper edge than you might have heard from the work of Hawk – even in the later years when he became a bit of a modernist! The lineup here is a bit larger than some of Bennie Wallace's usual groups – an ensemble that features Bennie on tenor, with Terrell Stafford on trumpet, Ray Anderson on trombone, Jesse Davis on alto, and Donald Vega on piano – all set up with sharp rhythms from bassist Danton Boller and the mighty Alvin Queen on drums! Anthony Wilson actually handled the arrangement of the tunes, even though he's not on the set – and the approach is very contemporary, and hardly a throwback mode at all – nicely showing us how much the music of Hawkins still has resonance for generations of listeners to come. Titles include "Disorder At The Border", "Bean & The Boys", "Body & Soul", and "La Rosita". CD

Atco, 1983. Used ... $6.99
An album of surprising brilliance – recorded late in the career of Yes, but one of the group's biggest hits ever! And while we've always been fans of Anderson, Squire, & Co, we're also ready to admit that the real star here is Trevor Horn – who produced the album and put the whole thing together with the kind of choppy feel as his best early productions for ZTT, especially work by Art Of Noise. The album's "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" still has a great resonance to our ears as a street-grooving number from the electro years – even despite its chart and radio fame at the time – and other tracks on the album follow in a nicely similar groove. Other titles include "Hold On", "It Can Happen", "Cinema", "Leave It", "Our Song", "City of Love", and "Hearts". CD

✨✧ Steve YoungSeven Bridges Road – The Complete Recordings (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ace (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
The lasting classic from underground legend Steve Young – a set that features his famous original version of the title track, which was recorded by a number of key talents in the 70s – but which is even more important as a testament to Steve's unique place in music! Young had country roots in the south, but worked the folk scene in California in the 60s – and, like some of his best contemporaries, really transformed into something else – partly through a relationship with Van Dyke Parks, who was a key early supporter – but clearly very much his own visionary, too! Young has a voice with a depth that recalls Tim Buckley's farther reaches at times – but a much more homegrown approach – and the songs here are unassuming country numbers that might sit well next to the hippest of the 70s scene – with resonance that runs a space between Austin and LA. Titles include "Seven Bridges Road", "My Oklahoma", "White Trash Song", "One Car Funeral Procession", "Lonesome Orry & Mean", "Come Sit By My Side", "Montgomery In The Rain", and "True Note". This great CD version features material that was recorded at the same time, but only showed up on later reworked versions of the record by Rounder and Blue Canyon – plus some re-recordings too – titles that include "I Can't Hold Myself In Line", "Days Of 49", "Wild Goose", "Ballad Of William Sycamore", "White Trash Song", and "Seven Bridges Road". Also features earlier 45 rpm tracks for Reprise – "Down In The Flood (aka Crash On The Levee)" and "The White Trash Song (aka There's A High Tide Risin)". CD

Still Music, Late 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.99
A killer look at one of the most compelling labels on the Chicago house scene of the 80s – a tiny imprint, but one that cut some mighty important music – especially sounds that would have great resonance in the global acid explosion at the end of the decade! The work here has edges that are often a bit sharper than those of more familiar house at Trax Records – and a rhythmic intensity that's very focused, very stripped-down, and very much distilled to the core essence of Chicago house – that harder punch that's informed by a lot of European work at the start of the 80s, but turned towards the decimated disco scene in the US – to rise up a whole new generation with a great burst of energy! The package is maybe the best we've seen so far from Still Music – and features these very detailed notes that tell the fascinating story of the label's rise and short history – really getting at the midwestern melting pot that made house music so great. Titles include "Kill Yourself Dancing" by Razz, "Lover Man" by Ben Mays, "It Could Be Acid" by White Knight, "Face The Music (dub mix)" by Boom Boom & Master Plan, "Persia" by Modern Mechanical Music, "Electric Baile (commercial mix)" by Master Plan, "I Want You (transcontinental mix)" by Hex Complexx, and "Rock The Nation (Kenny Jason rmx)" by Matt Warren. 2CD set features a whopping 21 tracks in all!

✨✧ Ballister (Dave Rempis/Fred Lonberg Holm/Paal Nilssen Love)Chrysopoeia ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 2022. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two searing long, live improvisations that really sum up the intensity of the Ballister trio at its best – the kind of special sonic resonance that occurs between the saxes of Dave Rempis, drums of Paal Nilssen Love, and cello and electronics of Fred Lonberg-Holm! All three players are musicians who can be more speculative and tentative in moments of spontaneous creation – but here, they clearly know each other so well, and can gauge the responses of their bandmates, there's sort of a freewheeling frenzy of musical imagination that seems boundless! The album features two long tracks, both recorded in Krakow – "Strapling" and "Muffit". CD

Death Is Not The End, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning sounds from Iranian pianist Morteza Mahjubi – an artist who tunes his instrument in all these very unique ways – so that the strings and the keys come together in ways that are unlike anything at all you'd hear in the west! At times, the instrument almost feels more like a stringed instrument being plucked – while at others, you can definitely hear the percussive resonance of the piano performance as well – on tracks that occasionally feature some other percussion or light instrumentation, and which are all improvisations that were done for radio in the late 50s and early 60s. The set features a total of 14 tracks in all – really mind-bending, other-worldly music. CD

✨✧ Van MorrisonAstral Weeks ... CD
Warner, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Van's debut album for Warner Brothers and a pretty radical departure from anything he'd done before – breaking all kinds of new ground for his own most creative work and helping pave the way for all kinds of hauntingly poetic rock, folk rock, and singer-songwriter records to come! It doesn't take more than a few seconds of opening title track, with Morrison's rawly passionate voice and spiritually yearning lyrics, to know this is a pretty remarkable creative leap from pop leaning sound of "Brown Eyed Girl" and other preceding efforts – , and it gets even more far out from there both lyrically and instrumentally! It's almost folk jazz, arrangements wise, with flute and largely acoustic instrumentation, a really spontaneous feel to the sessions, and always hypnotic, seemingly stream of consciousness vocals by Van. As loose and spacious as the sound is, the emotional resonance is pretty heavy, and sequenced as a cycle: part one In The Beginning on side 1 and part two Afterwards on side 2. A stunner! Titles include "Astral Weeks", "Beside You", "Cyprus Avenue", "Sweet Thing", "Slim Slow Slider", and "Madame George". CD

✨✧ Sun RaDiscipline 27-II (with bonus track) ... CD
Saturn/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Sun Ra's greatest albums of the 70s – recording during the same sessions that yielded the famous Space Is The Place record for Blue Thumb, and done with a very similar feel – an expansive configuration of the Arkestra in peak form! The range of expression is really incredible – from the spiritual soul jazz of "Pan Afro", to the lightly grooving June Tyson vocals of "Neptune", to the extended suite "Discipline 27-II", a stretched-out spacey number with vocal "dramatizing" by Ra, Tyson, Ruth Wright, and Judith Holton. That track's a particularly great one, with the kind of spiritual resonance behind the spacey approach that rarely comes through as strongly on other albums – but the whole set is wonderful, and judging how reminscient of it some of the best, similarly-minded underground jazz is decades later – the whole thing is an amazing testament to how strong Ra's influence is today. Reissued here on CD for the first time ever – with a bonus "Untitled Outtake". CD

Tenorist James Brandon Lewis has really been on fire in recent years – always opening up new doors in his music, and surprising us with each new record, which seems to have a slightly different flavor that further expands his palette of sound! Here, Lewis presents some beautiful original compositions with a group that has amazingly fluid drum work from the great Chad Taylor, lovely colors on piano from Aruan Ortiz, and these rollingly soulful basslines from Brad Jones – all players who are seamlessly tied to Lewis tenor, as the four paint these really wonderful pictures in sound. The approach is more structured than some of Lewis' other recordings, but at a level that's still filled with bursts of personal expression throughout – on titles that include "Every Atom Glows", "Archimedean", "Resonance", "Per 5", "Tessera", and "Code Of Being".

Okka Disk, 2001. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the boldest statements on record from trombonist Jeb Bishop – and a really great reminder of his key contributions to the Chicago avant scene at the start of the century! Jeb's a master of subtle shape and sound on his instrument, but he can also play with a fiercer frenzy – which is definitely the case here, and he moves between a trio and quartet lineup – alongside Kent Kessler on bass, Tim Mulvenna on drums, and Jeff Parker on guitar! The match of Parker and Bishop happens on four of the album's seven tracks, and has an especially strong resonance – tuneful at times, fuzzier at others – although the trio tracks are pretty darn incredible, and have us really remembering the greatness of Kessler and Mulvenna too. Titles include "Mirror Image", "The Umbrella", "Piggly Wiggly", "Pond", and "Flex Time". CD

✨✧ Daniel HumairDrum Thing ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from drummer Daniel Humair – a hugely important creative musician, still very much at the top of his game! Humair was one of the first European percussionists to really set his instrument free from conventions of timekeeping – to open up more possibilities for melody, which is definitely the case here – as Daniel works in a nicely loose group – with Stephane Kerecki on superb acoustic bass, and Vincent Le Quang on tenor and soprano sax – plus a bit of guest flugelhorn from Yoann Loustalot. The songs vary in length and approach, but always have a warmth that other drummers in this situation might not find – that way that Humair has of letting himself free, but never going too far outside – so that there's always this resonance with the bass, which sounds tremendous next to the saxophone. Titles include "Heaven's Gate", "Drum Thing 2", "Mutinerie", "La Cantonal", "Prologue", and a number of "Interlude" tracks. CD

The music is very well-placed on the Four Flies label – as it's got the same resonance as some of the 70s funky sound library and film score work the company normally issues – but with a slightly more updated vibe, as Moonbrew brings in some slight influence from hip hop production, while still allowing for plenty of live instrumentation on the cuts. Titles include "Saturn V", "Mercury Seven", "Tranquility Base", "Emu", "Capsule Communicator", and "Project Gemini". 12-inch, Vinyl record

A record that really carries its message in its title – a set of spiritual ruminations on the nature of existence – inspired by the writings of Sun Ra, and carried off with vocals by Dwight Trible – who joins this Italian group for the recording! Each song is inspired by a different poem from Ra's This Planet Is Doomed – and the music is freely improvised, but in a relatively spiritual way – with leader Tommaso Cappellato on drums, with Fabrizio Puglisi on piano and keyboards, Piero Bittolo Bon on reeds and electronics, and Marco Privato on bass. The set may be one of the most avant albums that Trible ever recorded – and his vocals have the strong resonance of his straighter recordings, but a bit more bite, and a really mighty reach – on titles that include "Tomorrow's Destiny", "Infinity", "Science Has Changed", "The End", "Time", and "You Are From This Planet".

Beautifully joyous work from Myra Melford – a set recorded early in the career of the pianist, with her first trio – and abristle with sound that really grabs us right from the start! Melford here seems to be working in a level that's maybe as post-Tyner as some of the post-Coltrane saxophonists of the decade before – fully aware of the freedoms of space and motivation of rhythmic pulse, but really finding her own voice too – with a very imaginative trio that features the excellent Reggie Nicholson on drums and some really beautiful bass from Lindsey Horner. There's a resonance between the musicians that's completely captivating – and the bass of Horner seems to bring out something really special in the piano of Melford that we don't always hear in later years. Titles on this first volume include "Evening Might Still", "Between Now & Then", "Now & Now 1", and "Parts 1 & 2 Frank Lloyd Wright Goes West To Rest". CD

And as with that set, the keyboards are balanced by the sharp, raspy tones of Greg Tuohey on guitar – a player who almost gets key-like tones from his instrument at times, using it sparely, and with a nice sense of resonance that really helps shape the mellow grooves of the sound! The rest of the group features David Dinyard on bass and Tommy Crane on drums and percussion – and titles include "My Mistake", "Friendo", "Solace", "Here", "Is Anything Okay", "The Storyteller", "The Shadow & The Self", and "Where Now".

Mark Helias hangs right in the middle on bass – providing real grounding at some points, and a bridge at others – as all three musicians work with the kind of resonance that makes a record like this such a sonic standout!

First up is a beautiful duet with Susan Alcorn – with a fantastic sound that has Alcorn's groundbreaking work on pedal steel mixing with the well-crafted electronics of Thollem – lines that really seem to find the right resonance with the steel strings, then expand the sound out in ways that are completely unexpected! Alcorn's become one of the most compelling improvisers in recent years – and this set is a good illustration of her growing talents. The other half features Thollem working with drummer Alex Cline – on a set that mostly seems to have Thollem using acoustic piano, but in ways that are very unusual – at times almost with a Charlemagne Palestine sense of minimalism!

Evan Parker, playing solo soprano sax – and recorded in a unique way that cuts his performance directly onto disc, which results in really stunning sound! The textures of Parker's music here are wonderful – bold notes mixed with more obscure sonic statements – all beautifully captured by the recording style, which features a solo microphone in the space of a room – so that the resonances of the reed lines are also reflected as they flow out into three dimensions. And unlike some other Parker material of this nature, the whole thing is very spontaneous and soulful – never too dry or academic, and much more with the vibrancy of Steve Lacy in a similar setting.
