Rodrigo AmadoLet The Free Be Men ... LP
Trost (Austria), 2021. New Copy ... $23.99
A set with two strong horn players upfront – but one that draws some equally fantastic energy from the bottom end of the group too – thanks to wonderful contributions from Kent Kessler on bass and Chris Corsano on drums! The musical qualities of tenorist Rodrigo Amado seem to just deepen more and more with each new release – there's a sense of soul here we might not have heard this strongly a few years before, one that really matches the work on the record from Joe McPhee – who blows soprano sax, pocket trumpet, and even a bit of pvc pipe – the last with that special sort of magic that's continued to make Joe such a vibrant player over the years. But we're also equally moved here by the basswork of Kent Kessler – who's got this way of matching his strengths with openness, at a level that's really echoed by the drums of Corsano – a mixture of boldness and sensitivity that's really wonderful. All tracks are long improvisations, recorded in Copehagen – and titles include "Resist", "Let The Free Be Men", "Never Surrender", and "Men Is Woman Is Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Chicago Edge EnsembleInsidious Anthem ... CD
Trost (Austria), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
A Chicago collective, but one who work here through a set of compositions by Dan Phillips – the guitarist in the group, and a musical force who really seems to bring a lot out of the other players! The quintet features Hamid Drake on drums, Mars Williams on saxes, Jeb Bishop on trombone, and Krzysztof Pabian on bass – but the leadership of Phillips has definitely given the music its own sort of special vibe – as Dan's got this way of ringing out loud tones, even when quiet – almost setting up these colored flags to guide the others' expressions. Williams definitely takes off in the setting, as does Bishop – both reminding us of their older strengths – and titles include "Caustic Premise", "A Pontificator's Tale", "Curbside Memorial", and "Untold".

DEK Trio (Ken Vandermark/Elisabeth Harnik/Didi Kern)Burning Below Zero ... CD
Trost (Austria), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
The first we've heard of this new trio project from reedman Ken Vandermark – a lineup that features Elisabeth Harnik on piano and Didi Kern on drums – all working with a sound that's a very nice change from some of Ken's other project! The mode is free jazz, but the style is maybe a bit more open, almost ragged around the edges – with a lot of sonic space around the individual instruments, which come together here with as much sense of the room as each other – maybe because Kern and Harnik are bold but spare on their instruments, which seems to open up all these interesting new ways of phrasing from Vandermark! The album was recorded in performance at the Raj in Austria – and titles include "Raj One", "Raj Two", and "Raj Three". CD

Elisabeth Harnik & Joelle LeandreTender Music ... CD
Trost (Austria), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
A beautiful setting for the bass of the wonderful Joelle Leandre – a set of duets with pianist Elisabeth Harnik, whose sharper tones are a great match for the warmth of Leandre! Joelle's always been a very unique improviser – always very conscious of the farther reaches and most creative possibilities of her instrument, yet also often very sensitive in the sounds she creates – maybe decades ahead of so many others in her early recordings, and still completely refreshing in a contemporary performance like this. If anything, Harnik often seems to let Leandre take the lead – but she's also a very strong performer on her own. Ken Vandermark contributes liner notes – and titles include "Ear Area" in six parts.

Joelle Leandre/Pauline Oliveros/George LewisPlay As You Go ... CD
Trost (Austria), 2022. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Three wonderful players, sounding even better together here in the company of each other – as every member of the trio finds a way to resonate with sonic energy that's simply mindblowing! Both Joelle Leandre and Pauline Oliveros have ways of doing that on their own records, but the pairing here is even better than the sum of their parts – especially when George Lewis is brought into the mix – creating incredible sounds on a laptop and trombone, next to the warmer bass of Leandre and a button accordion handled by Oliveros! The sense of texture and sonic shape is mesmerizing throughout – as the trio spontaneously create over the space of three quarter of an hour of live performance. CD

Jim O'Rourke & Mats GustafssonXylophonen Virtuosen ... CD
Incus/Trost (Austria), 2000. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
There's no xylophone here, but there's plenty of other wonderful elements at play – tenor and flute from Mats Gustafsson, guitar and accordion from Jim O'Rourke – and assorted "junk" handled by both musicians! The music is gentler at times than most things we're used to hearing from Mats, but is also different than some of the solo guitar explorations by Jim too – really special meeting of the two players, in which they find a mixture of tuneful space and some more abstract sonic territory – balanced in great ways throughout the set! Titles include "Faxing Stina", "Paging Cyndi", "No Longer In use", "Unlisted", "Low Battery", "Telexing Jun", and "Paper Out". CD

✨✧ Akira Sakata & Takeo MoriyamaMitochonrdria ... CD
Trost (Austria), 1986. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from a real golden period in the career of improvising reedman Akira Sakata – that 80s moment when he stepped out even more strongly on his own than he did in previous years – sometimes using more space between his notes, and coming up with a sound that can be incredibly seductive, and surprisingly soulful at times! Sakata blows tenor here next to the drums of Takeo Moriyama – and he moves between moments of intensity and others of contemplation – as does Moriyama on the drums, which sometimes have a quality that's very low, or even brooding – before exploding again into new fireworks! The interplay between the pair is tremendous – very different than European free jazz of the time, on titles that include "Chiasma", "Ghosts", "Satsuki", "Archezoa", "Hachi", "Dance", "Tsui Oku", and "Mitochondria".

✨✧ Arashi (Akira Sakata/Johan Berthling/Paal Nilssen-Love)Semikujira ... LP
Trost (Austria), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Reedman Akira Sakata is one of the most spiritual players to ever come out of the Japanese scene – one of the few saxophonists who can really match the richer soul of a Coltrane or Pharoah Sanders, but also able to open up with the freer jazz styles of later generations too! This recording is a perfect example of his brilliance – as Sakata's not only firmly in control of his own musical vision, but really able to shape the styles of younger collaborators Johan Berthling on bass and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums – both excellent musicians in their own right, but maybe even more majestic here in Sakata's company! Akira plays both alto and clarinet on the record – and provides some of his incredible vocalizations too – on titles that include "Snowing On The Temple Garden", "Blow Of The Humpback Whale", "Samikujira", and "Again Sheep Said Wolf Is Coming".

✨✧ Peter Brotzmann/Fred Van Hove/Han BenninkJazz In Der Kammer No 71 ... CD
Trost (Austria), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really dramatic live performance from these free jazz giants – three musicians who really know each other well, but who seem to come off with an even more majestic sense of power here! The performance is from 1974, and it burns with energy right from the start – this sense of inventiveness as if all three players had already mastered their instruments, yet were also surprising themselves during performance with new aspects they had just discovered – a freshness that comes through note after note after note – and in plenty of sounds that aren't notes either! Brotzmann blows alto and tenor, Fred Van Hove plays piano, and Han Bennink nearly destroys his drum kit – on titles that include "Filet Americain", "Involved", "Boogie For Fred", "Der Mammutzahn Aus Balve", and "Schwarzspect".

✨✧ Mofaya (John Dikeman/Jaimie Branch/Luke Stewart/Aleksandar Skoric)Like One Long Dream ... LP
Trost (Austria), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Three longform improvisations by a very dynamic quartet – a group who can come on strong at some moments, but often sound best when they balance out their sonic qualities, and find this really unique way to cascade their contributions together! Trumpeter Jaimie Branch is no stranger to our ears – but we're less familiar with the rest of the lineup – John Dikeman on saxes, Luke Stewart on bass,a nd Aleksandar Skoric on drums – all players who can exhibit a wonderful sense of interplay that gives the performance here a very special flavor. As with most improvisation, the quality is a bit hard to sum up in words – but will really come through right away upon an initial listening! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lee Ranaldo/Jim Jarmusch/Marc Urselli/Balazs PandChurning Of The Ocean ... LP
Trost (Austria), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lee Ranaldo is at most wonderfully trippy here – playing guitar with lots of effects and pedals, on these long-drawn tracks that really remind us what a sonic genius he can be in the right setting! He's working here alongside director Jim Jarmusch, who's a surprisingly good partner on additional guitars and effects – and the rest of the group features Marc Urselli on bass and laptop, and Balazs Pandi on drums – all players who really respect Ranaldo's lead, as things stretch out on these long, fuzzy, spacious explorations of tone and texture. Titles include "Night Of Webs", "Tectonic Mantle", "Infinite Rain", "Quivering Air", and "Threshing Fields". LP, Vinyl record album

Bureau B (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
A set that's even weirder and more wonderful than you might guess from the title – not really psychedelic at all, but music that takes off into the farther reaches of the electronic experiments that were begun on the German scene in the 70s! There's a blend of analog and digital electronics going on here, and while some tracks have some noisier elements in the mix, there's also a relatively rhythmic feel to most selections too – very much in the territory of the Sky Records scene that Bureau B has done such a great job reissuing over the years – but also stretched to encompass selections from a number of different labels too! Titles include "Nachtspaziergang (Tape 40)" by Heiko Maile, "Strahsund" by Die Partei, "Two Faces" by Rolf Trostel, "Full Steam Ahead" by Michael Bundt, "Etwas" by Moebius, "Scharfer Schnitt No 1" by Populare Mechanik, "Emphasis" by Harald Grosskopf, "Live Line" by You, "Quitting Time" by Bernd Kistenmacher, and "Pulsar" by Phantom Band.
