DMG NEEDS YOUR HELP so read on…

Greetings to all DMG Newsletter recipients! This is your pal Bruce. It has been a long, hot & humid summer, I’m glad it is almost over. Overall, it has been very slow business-wise this past summer. We have been working on various improvements: please check out our new homepage, database and want list/shopping cart. Thanks to our good friend Paul Acquaro for all of his hard work on our website. We are also listing and selling more records and CDs on Discogs. Also, we have priced many more records to fill our bins. We also have quite a bit of used CDs as well. Two great record stores, Other Music and Generations, closed in June so there are not many stores left to find interesting albums and compact discs in Manhattan. We were sad to see them go, both will be missed. It is hard to believe that we are one of the last record stores in Manhattan. Who knew?!?

We are struggling to survive in a difficult environment. Folks would rather stay at home and order from Amazon or just sample music from Spotify or Youtube and just listen to it on their phones. Many folks don’t want to pay for music so they steal it and this devalues the music and work of the musicians. Even the great experience of seeing & hearing music live is ignored when it appears on Youtube a few hours later. There is something to be said coming to visit a record store where you can listen, ask questions and discuss the music you care about.

We still have live music here at DMG almost every Sunday and those who show up find the experience rewarding. So please come down and spread the word to your friends. In the meantime or if you live far away, you can help us by ordering from us or just making a donation. Any amount helps, see the donation info on the bottom of the homepage. We have just 2 & 1/2 years left on our lease and we are trying to just get there, so we can continue to serve and inform this who care. I know there are many music fanatics out there who appreciate what we do so please show us the love. Sincerely, Bruce Lee Gallanter at DMG

And Now for This Week’s Important New Discs:

JOHN ZORN//CLAIRE CHASE/JOSH RUBIN+STPEHEN GOSLING/CHRISTIAN McBRIDE /TYSHAWN SOREY/AMERICAN BRASS QUINTETJAY CAMPBELL / et al - Commedia dell’arte (Tzadik 8347; USA)A fabulous and multifaceted suite celebrating the vibrant Italian dramatic form Commedia dell’arte that began in the 16th century and flourishes to this day. The classic archetypical characters Harlequin, Colombina, Scaramouche, Pulcinella and Pierrot are evoked in five compositional miniatures for small chamber ensembles: brass quintet, cello quartet, piano trio, vocal quartet and woodwinds. Premiered at the Guggenheim Museum in early 2016, the music contains some of Zorn’s finest writing and is a delight from first note to last. Over twenty of New York’s greatest musicians are involved in this exciting and varied suite of miniature masterpieces.
CD $16

UNNATURAL WAYS [AVA MENDOZA/TIM DAHL/SAM OSPOVAT] - We Aliens (Tzadik 7814; USA) A lynchpin of the Oakland rock/improv scene and now based in Brooklyn, Ava Mendoza has been taking Downtown NY by storm, performing with many of the best musicians around and leading her own dynamite bands. Her cutting edge guitar playing is front and center here in nine hard-edged and steely blues-tinged rock instrumentals. With a twisted sensibility and plenty of shredding, psychedelic effects and surprises, the music features Tim Dahl (Child Abuse, Lydia Lunch Retrovirus, Pulverize the Sound) on bass and Sam Ospovat (Enablers, Beep, Naytronix) on drums. Unnatural Ways is a tight, exciting new band out the burgeoning Brooklyn scene! “Outstanding and intense post-punk/progressive power trio at their prime!” - BLG

Tzadik & John Zorn Reissues:

WADADA LEO SMITH With ANTHONY DAVIS/MALACHI FAVORS MAGOUSTOUS - Reflectativity (Tzadik 7060b; USA) Reflectativity, first released on Leo Smith's own label in the early 1970s is one of the most important extended compositions blending improvisation and composition, and one of Leo Smith's masterpieces. This exciting new version features the brilliant pianist/composer Anthony Davis (who performed on the original recording) and longtime friend and colleague Malachi Favors—the legendary monster bass player from the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Coupled with several new compositions, this CD brings together the past and present of creative music's most continually fascinating composer/performers.

FRANK LONDON With ANTHONY COLEMAN/MARK FELDMAN/JOHN MEDESKI/MARK DRESSER/ et al - The Debt (Tzadik 7507b; USA) Frank London, a major voice in today’s Jewish music renaissance, who has worked with the likes of LLCooI J, LaMonte Young, Jane Siberry and Gal Costa, is a trumpetist, composer, arranger and musical scholar of startling range and creativity. The Debt is the first collection of his work for film and theater, and contains a wide variety of his musical obsessions: Latin grooves, Mingus-style jazz arrangements, classical chamber compositions, moody sound pieces, funky bachelor pad music and a gorgeous suite scored for six female voices. Over forty of New York’s greatest musicians are brought here in a variety of ensembles making this one of the most exciting and eclectic releases by one of the most active musicians in the Downtown scene.

JOHN ZORN With BILL FRISELL/WAYNE HORVITZ/FRED FRITH/JOEY BARON + YAMATSUKA EYE - Naked City (1972 IF 034; USA) "Regularly hailed as one the most important composers of the late 20th century, John Zorn is comfortable at the helm of an ensemble, as improviser on an array of instruments, and as a bold theorist of collaboration. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the New York artist and operator of the esteemed Tzadik label became known for assembling hardcore-inflected jazz ensembles and for devising 'game systems,' or intricate musical conditions intended to force players into new territory. Released in 1990 on Nonesuch, Naked City bears a stark cover photograph by Weegee -- noted for his unsparing images of New York crime scenes -- and features one of the more staggering 'rock' lineups ever assembled: Zorn on alto saxophone, guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Fred Frith, drummer Joey Baron, keyboardist Wayne Horvitz, and vocalist Yamatsuka Eye. Naked City is a maelstrom of styles, veering recklessly between country, noise, New Orleans R&B, polka, and grindcore, with overtures from detective shows and film noir. In other words, it's a daring maelstrom of American musical vernacular. It also explodes the rock format's supposed limitation and retains a wildly intersectional listenership: devotees of punk, free jazz, and harsh noise celebrate Naked City. In short, as one writer put it, Naked City remains a 'pinnacle of avant coolness.'" According to John Zorn’s business partner at Tzadik, this is in fact a legitimate release. - BLG

PAUL DUNMALL QUARTET With HOWARD COTTLE / OLIE BRICE / TONY BIANCO - Underground Underground (Slam 2101; UK) Featuring Paul Dunmall & Howard Cottle on tenor saxes, Olie Brice on acoustic bass and Tony Bianco on drums. Paul Dunmall put this quartet together to do a tribute to ’Sunship’, one Dunmall’s favorite albums by the John Coltrane Quartet. This quartet features two tenors, bass & drums instead of the usual Trane configuration: sax/piano/bass/drums. Mr. Dunmall has selected an impressive crew: the previously little known (to me), except for a couple of Dunmall octet & orchestra CDs. Howard Cottle on tenor, Olie Brice on bass (worked with Tobias Delius, Ingrid Laubrock & Waclaw Zimpel), and longtime Dunmall partner, Tony Bianco on drums. Dunmall and Bianco have already recorded several Coltrane duo discs.
All of the music here was written by Mr. Dunmall and is in the spirit of the ’Sunship’ album. The title track is first and erupts like a massive hurricane with an explosive Trane-like tenor solo from Mr. Dunmall, the quartet: tight, powerful and filled with cosmic spirits. Mr. Cottle also takes an impressive solo and he captures that intense, rip-roaring eruption as well. Both tenors sound wonderful together, tight and spinning in circular waves. “The Inner Silence was Way Too Loud”, simmers with sublime slow-burning energy, the rich harmonies for both saxes provide a swell hypnotic, head-nodding groove. Mr. Cottle takes a strong solo with the rhythm team stirring up the turbulent waters around them. The ever resourceful Tony Bianco is in fine form here, sounding like the amazing Elvin Jones at times as plays in a similar circular way. What is amazing about this disc is how well it does capture that Trane Quartet spirit without sounding too much like them. Having a difficult day? Stressed out by the barrage of bad news from the Daily KOS? If you need some positive inspiration, then you need some of this cosmic medicine: reach for this disc and let it rip! - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

PAULINE OLIVEROS / ROSCOE MITCHELL / JOHN TILBURY / WADADA LEO SMITH - Nessuno (IDA 035; Italy) Featuring: Pauline Oliveros - V-Accordion. Roscoe Mitchell - alto & soprano saxophone, flute, John Tilbury - piano and Wadada Leo Smith - trumpet. “In 2011 Pauline Oliveros, Roscoe Mitchell, John Tilbury and Wadada Leo Smith opened the AngelicA Festival with 3 days of concerts… they performed solos and duets (Pauline and Roscoe; John and Wadada), and finally, for the first time ever, these 4 distinct musical voices performed together, as a quartet… Over time AngelicA (which is 26 years old) has always tried to bring together different worlds, even ones that were very far apart from each other (although distance is nothing but an illusion if it is not prescribed by cultural boundaries): through the creative forces that come alive in these encounters, if possible, to re-discover spaces for expression beyond the original contexts… A vision that comes, takes over, and pushes you in that direction, which otherwise would be hard to explore… I am very thankful for the musicians who took up the invitation as a natural possibility…” - Massimo Simonini (March 2016)
CD $16 (10 copies in stock now & more coming in a couple of weeks)

TERRY RILEY With GYAN RILEY/TRACEY SILVERMAN - The 3 Generations Trio (IDA 034/ReR Megacorp; Italy) "In addition to my large catalogue of completely composed pieces written for orchestras and chamber music ensembles, I have many compositions that have been notated and were intended to be played solo or with small improvising ensembles. Some of these works are simply charts with just a few performing directions. I like to work with these more open forms in order to bring out the best in my own playing as well as that of my collaborators, freeing up our abilities to improvise in diverse ways and for the music to exist in the 'present moment'. The music might encompass Asian, African, Western classical, jazz or other aesthetics as Tracy and Gyan have the ability and awareness to shift genres as the music calls for it. The 3 Generations Trio is one of my favorite ensembles because of the basic layers of violin, guitar and piano give a wonderful sonic transparency. There is a resonant composite sound coming from the individual strands of violin, guitar and piano that spontaneously emerge to generate a unique fabric. The addition of the Indian style vocals have allowed us to explore musical avenues nourished by the ancient rivers of North Indian ragas." Terry Riley (October 2015)
“Featuring Terry Riley on synthesizer, piano & voice harmonizer, Gyan Riley on electric & acoustic guitars and Tracy Silverman on violin & six-string electric violin. Over the past few years, I’ve heard guitarist Gyan Riley play solos, in duos with Julian Lage and with the Dither Guitar Quartet. Gyan has become one of New York’s finest and most creative guitarists, his recent duo set with Julian Lage at the John Zorn Bagatelles Marathon at the Village Vanguard, was one of this year’s most memorable sets for many in attendance. I am a longtime fan of composer/keyboardist Terry Riley, whose many recordings I’ve collected since the early seventies. I don’t know violinist Tracy Silverman very well although he has recorded with Gyan Riley and Giuseppi Logan. Terry says in the liner notes that this piece written for an open form unit and is only partially written. It sounds rather raga-like with Terry’s soft, enchanting voice at the center. This disc was recorded in Teatro Rossini in Italy in May of 2013 and the sound is superb. Terry’s voice is used sparingly and often enhances the sound of the trio, just chanting with occasional fairy tale-like lyrics. Terry Riley changes the sound of his synth here and there, occasionally going it an accordion-like resonance. This perfect music to help us calm down and daydream. Quite wonderful in more ways than one.” - BLG/DMG
CD $16

CHRISTIAN WOLFF With ROBYN SCHULKOWSKY/APARTMENT HOUSE - Angelica Music (IDA 030; Italy) The last surviving member of the New York School, performing his own compositions on piano and melodica with percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky, as well as performances of other Wolff compositions by the British ensemble, Apartment House. Covering the period 1950 - 2013, these compositions constitute an important document that traces the evolution of a composer through and after a period of revolutionary musical re-thinking. Materials from two concerts have been programmed to form a kind of composite meta-composition for the CD. With useful notes by Christian Wolff.
Considering that Christian Wolff is in his early eighties, he has become more prolific as a composer and musician over the past decade with a handful of fine discs out on Mode, Tzadik, New World and Matchless. Mr. Wolff has selected a fine crew with Robyn Schulkowsky on percussion, himself on piano & melodica and Apartment House: a string quartet plus clarinet and piano. The pieces were composed over a long period of time with each one varying slightly in instrumentation and sound. Mr. Christian explains how or why each work was composed so we get an idea of his unique view/vision. I found that after listening to the more recent disc by Mr. Wolff on New World, Mode and Wandelweiser, that the more closely I listened, the more was revealed and made sense. Each piece is carefully played, each silence or space well crafted. Mr. Wolff’s use of the melodica often gives this music a more playful or childlike quality. The restrained, hush elegance is often at the center of this music. The pulse is slowed down at times and the vibe if most enchanting, bristling with somber ghosts. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG
CD $16

BILLY MINTZ / TONY MALABY / JOHN GROSS / ROBERTA PIKET / HILLIARD GREENE - Ugly Beauty (Thirteenth Note 010; USA) Featuring Tony Malaby & John Gross on tenor saxes, Roberta Piket on piano, Fender Rhodes, Hammond B-3 & Nord keyboard, Hilliard Greene on acoustic bass and Billy Mintz on drums & compositions plus guest, Anton Denner on alto sax. The Billy Mintz Quintet played here last Sunday (8/21/16) and a superb set that was filled with surprising twists and turns of direction. You doubt you well know east coast saxist Tony Malaby, from his many recordings and gigs with Downtown’s best. West coast saxist John Gross has worked with Mr. Mintz on a couple of previous CDs and has a couple of fine trio discs out. Billy Mintz had become ab ever in-demand drummer who keeps pretty busy and ins several bands of his own. His wife pianist Roberta Piket is another creative jazz player with several solo and group CDs on this, the Thirteenth Note label. Her latest, a tribute to Marian McPartland, remains one of this year’s most overlooked gems.
Mr. Mintz wrote all but one of these songs, the one cover is the Monk title track. There is a solemn, smoldering quality going on when this disc begins, with both tenors calmly circling one another as the rest piano-led trio simmers underneath. “Vietnam” is a most poignant ballad with some sad yet lovely sax hovering. On a song called, “Flight”, Mr. Mintz adds a third sax so that there are some strong, thoughtful harmonies for all three saxes. There is an amazing section on “Shmear”, where things unexpectedly speed up, a shrewd and difficult passage with some furious interplay for both saxes, piano and rhythm team. What made the set so good here last Sunday was that it kept changing direction from piece to piece and even within each song. Free sections mutated into slyly written parts. One of the highlights was and is the playing of Ms. Piket. The first CD ends with a short, funky song for electric piano and clavinet. It is just one gem among many. Side II, the second disc, starts with several layers of voodoo-like electric keyboards, a sly, laid back groove and congas: a strong opener. This long piece, “Tumba” evolves into a majestic, reeds web and followed by a long, cerebral soprano solo by Mr. Malaby. The quintet again simmers softly on “Love and Beauty”, which has a dreamy elegance, sublime piano and haunting tenors center stage. The one cover is a wonderful rendition version of Monk’s “Ugly Beauty”, which slowly builds though out and features both tenors spinning together in a stirring storm, never screaming but slow burning righteously. Considering that this two disc set is about two hours long, it is one of this week’s best (under-recognized) treasures. Don’t overlook it, please. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

PETER FREY - DANIEL STUDER With JOHN BUTCHER/GERRY HEMINGWAY/HANS KOCH/MAGDA MAYAS/GIANCARLO SCHIAFFINI/CHRISTIAN WEBER/ et al - Zurich Concerts - 15 Years of Kontrabassduo Studer-Frey [2 CD Set](Leo 750/751; UK) Featuring the contrabass duo of Peter K Frey and Daniel Studer with guests John Butcher on saxes, Jacques Demierre on piano, Gerry Hemingway on drums, Harald Kimmig on violin, Hans Koch on bass clarinet, Magda Mayas on piano, Giancarlo Schiaffini on trombone, Jan Schegel on electric bass, Michael Seigner on electric guitar, Christian Weber on bass and Alfred Zimmerlin on cello. Contrabass duos are still relatively rare although I have heard the Marks Brothers (Helias & Dresser), as well as several duos with Peter Kowald: William Parker, Barry Guy and Damon Smith. This bass duo has been together for 15 years. I don’t know very much about either bassist although both have worked with Christopher Gallio. Each piece of this double disc set features either 1 or 2 guests and as mach as five on one section. I recognize half of the names of the musicians here (Hemingway, Butcher & Koch), but at least a new name for me (Seigner). A number of these musicians are Swiss and can be heard on labels: Intakt, Leo and Percasso.
Each guest musician brings their own sound and improv approach to the bass duo. The sonic interplay is often fascinating and always changing depending on who is featured. Legendary Italian trombonist Schiaffini and Hans Koch are up first and work together quite well. All four players spin several lines around one another, blending and bending and weaving impressively. Berlin based pianist, Magda Mayas, is known by those have heard her inside-the-piano explorations, but is under-recorded. She fits extremely well here,rubbing strings with objects of some sort which sounds right when the bassist are bowing or plucking their strings in similar ways. The second disc has three long trios with Gerry Hemingway, John Butcher and Jacques Demierre. Each of these are strong and spirited as each of these men are master improvisers. Extraordinary! Hemingway sounds like he is playing with his old partner bassist Mark Dresser since both bassists here also deal with similar extended technique sonic palette. The trio with John Butcher is nearly thirty minutes long and takes time to evolve. Even on their own without a guest, the two bassist sound fine exploring the contrabasses together. There hasn’t been a double CD on Leo in a long while. This one is filled with captivating sounds so spend some time with it. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

Historic & Archival Recordings:

ARTHUR WILLIAMS With TOSHINORI KONDO / PETER KUHN / WILLIAM PARKER / DENIS CHARLES - Forgiveness Suite [LP only/LTD Edition of 400] (NoBusiness 97; Lithuania) Never before released radio recordings at WKCR in 1979 of NY trumpeter Arthur Williams, a member of the loft scene, in a quintet with Toshinori Kondo on trumpet, Peter Kuhn on saxes & clarinet, William Parker on bass and Denis Charles on drums. A great example of probing free jazz from that period. The two trumpeters are split in the recording, with Williams on the right and Kondo is on the left, making it easy to recognize each player's work. Arthur Williams is not as well known as his band members, but at the time he was a peer of Jemeel Moondoc, Frank Lowe, Milford Graves, Cecil Taylor and Peter Kuhn; in fact, the lineup of this album is the same as Kuhn's 1978 Livin' Right album. Kudos to NoBusiness for bringing this essential material to new ears.
I had the good fortune to hear trumpeter Toshinori Kondo several times in the early eighties playing with Eugene Chadbourne, Fred Frith and John Zorn. I attended many concerts during the ‘loft jazz heydays of the seventies and eighties. There are only a handful of recordings available from this time, much of what I saw and heard remains undocumented. I don’t recall trumpeter Arthur Williams although I might have seen him with Jemeel Moondoc. This recently found recording was made at WKCR and it is the only album available with Arthur Williams as a leader. It is also an extraordinary date, long lost to time and an important relic from a bygone era. Grab it before it sells out! - BLG/DMG

TEMPO ANTHOLOGY With DIZZY REECE/TUBBY HAYES/DON RENDELL/RONNIE SCOTT/VICTOR FELDMAN/JIMMY DEUCHAR/ et al - British Modern Jazz 1954 - 60 (Acrobat 7101; UK) Between 1954 and 1960, the British Tempo label probably did more than any other recording imprint to document the rapid progress of local modern jazz. Poorly funded, and run almost exclusively on the irrepressible energy of Tony Hall, otherwise part of Decca's exploitation team, its catalogue of EP's, 10" and 12" LPs captured the early steps of such soon-to-be legends as saxophonists Tubby Hayes, Ronnie Scott and Don Rendell, multi-instrumentalist Victor Feldman, trumpeters Dizzy Reece and Jimmy Deuchar and drummer Phil Seamen, all of whom effectively entered a rotating stock company, operating in much the same way as Art Blakey, Horace Silver and Hank Mobley were then doing on the fabled Blue Note label. Keen to introduce his roster of artists to as wider audience as possible, Hall however did something Blue Note's bosses never tried: during 1957 and '58 he released three multi-artist anthologies, each with the aim of drawing in new listeners via specific thematic angles, sometimes spicing the mix with material not available elsewhere in Tempo's output. Cool Music For A Hot Night promised a program of ballad performances: Speak Low delivered a sequence of largely grooving medium-tempo material and Swingin' The Blues found Tempo's stars tackling funky, blues-related themes by the likes of Sonny Rollins, Sonny Stitt and Horace Silver. Each album also had the considerable bonus of striking cover art featuring the then young-starlet-cum-model Jackie Collins, later to become a celebrated author. Since their initial release, all three albums have gone on to become rare collectors' items, prized as much for their sleeve imagery as their musical contents. This new Acrobat 4-CD contains all three LPs in their original running order, restoring material that was sometimes edited out in order to fit the original playing time. Featuring the collectable cover art, rare photographs of many of the participating musicians, reminiscences by Tony Hall and a detailed booklet note by award-winning saxophonist and author Simon Spillett, this release makes an ideal introduction to a record label once dubbed "the Blue Note of British jazz." A further bonus CD assembles a similar mood music program from Tempo's later 1957-60 catalogue, including performances by Tommy Whittle, Eddie Thompson and Tony Crombie. Also included is a 45-page booklet, filled with an informative history of British modern jazz in the 1950’s, along with some 40+ album cover pics. Surprisingly well done on many levels. If you want to know who influenced many of your favorite UK jazz pioneers of the sixties and seventies and beyond (like Evan Parker, Derek Bailey, John Stevens, Trevor watts, John Surman…), this is a perfect place to start and check out that price… - BLG

FRANK ZAPPA With NAPOLEON MURPHY BROCK/GEORGE DUKE/RUTH UNDERWOOD/TOM FOWLER/CHESTER THOMPSON - Son of Orange Country (Laser Media 1142822; EEC) FM broadcast from Boston in 1974. Of the twenty or so Frank Zappa and Mothers gigs that I saw between 1969 & 1988, my favorite band and gig was in Princeton, NJ in April of 1973. It was an amazing all-star band, mostly instrumental with minimal singing, the perfect blend of progressive and jazz/rock/fusion tendencies. This disc features a fine set from November 9th of 1974 at the Orpheum in Boston. I caught the same band at the Spectrum in Philly a week later and was knocked out by this gig as well. This long, 72+ minute disc features songs from ‘Roxy & Elsewhere’, ‘Apostrophe’, ‘One Size Fits All’ and one oldie from the first Mothers album, ‘Freak Out’. Commencing with a laid back version of “Tush Tush Tush” (from ‘Joe’s Garage’). Both Zappa and Napoleon Murphy Brock handle the vocals and their repartee is especially charming. The band is in fine form and sound like they are having fun. Highlights include those instrumental passages from “Rdnzl” and “Echidna’s Arf”, that only Mr. Zappa could compose. Both the late, great George Duke (on keyboards) and Frank on lead guitar get s one chances to stretch-out and take inspired solos. This is icing on the cake. The front and back cover mention that Tom Waits guests, which he did on the second set that night. He is does not appear on this disc, though. Pretty wonderful nonetheless. - BLG

JEAN-CLAUDE VANNIER - Electro Rapide (Finders Keepers 050; UK) For their 50th release, Finders Keepers Record's label heads Andy Votel, Dom Thomas and Doug Shipton return to their first release L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches by Jean-Claude Vannier released by Finders Keepers in 2005 (BMS 001CD/ FKR 001X-LP), with a long overdue return to Jean-Claude Vannier's vaults! Electro Rapide is a collection of rare and unreleased archive material from the studio archives of legendary French orchestral pop composer Jean-Claude Vannier. Taken from the period before and during his revered creative relationship with Serge Gainsbourg (reaching their halcyon with 1971's Histoire De Melody Nelson) these tracks reveal a rare glimpse of Vannier's self-initiated instrumental projects that were crowbarred between an airtight studio diary as one of France's most in demand arrangers and composers of the post Mai-68 generation. Alongside a handful of his contemporaries and collaborators such as Michel Colombier, Serge Gainsbourg, François de Roubaix, Brigitte Fontaine, Claude Nougaro and Gerard Manset, composer and orchestral arranger Jean-Claude Vannier is globally recognized as one of the key exponents of the Gallic pop cognoscenti to make the significant change from '60s yé-yé to the brooding conceptual pop which defined the following decade. His own masterworks, Histoire De Melody Nelson and L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches (both of which benefited from the poetic prose of Serge Gainsbourg), are two such productions that continue to inspire and challenge popular music as long as five decades since they were first released to moderate audiences in the early 1970s. Electro Rapide is a collection of similarly underexposed instrumental works that combine a mixture of Jean-Claude Vannier's familiar trademark motifs and stylings from his coveted work for idiosyncratic French pop vocalists (such as Fontaine, Nougaro, Leonie and Anna St. Clair) with the seldom heard experimental music for ballets, fashion shows as well as his infamous film music (such as the soundtracks for Cannabis (1970) and La Horse (1970).

K. LEIMER - Re-enact (Palace of Lights 001; USA) "Following a few years of back-catalog recovery, K. Leimer has completed work on his first new solo album since The Grey Catalog. These ten new tracks follow an emergent arc, a refinement of the techniques he has used since Permissions. Highly tactile, with an emphasis on subharmonics, Re-enact sketches an antediluvian soundstage of deteriorating fragments scattered among still-recognizable artifacts. This multitude of points-of-collapse in textural, timbre, harmonic and rhythmic relationships, continually folds in on itself to reveal moments of inner coherence and cognition. Embedded throughout with a wealth of digital and analog detail, Re-enact sets a new post-ambient direction for Leimer's work. K. Leimer founded Palace of Lights in 1979. Leimer's early work has recently been reissued by Autumn and RVNG, and his early cassette work is in the critically acclaimed VOD box set American Cassette Culture (VOD 139KL-LP, 2015). Leimer has been actively producing music since the mid-1970s -- his current catalog includes 17 albums plus two collaborative albums with Marc Barreca. Leimer's work is included in the collection of The British Library."

AETHENOR [With STEPHEN O’MALLEY/STEVE NOBLE/DANIEL O’SULLIVAN/KRISTOFFER RYGG] - Hazel (VHF 140; USA) "Hazel is the fifth record from Æthenor, the group of eclectic travelers that includes Stephen O'Malley (SunnO))), KTL), Daniel O'Sullivan (Ulver, This is Not This Heat, Grumbling Fur, etc.), Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver), and Steve Noble (Brötzmann Trio, N.E.W.) Together they bring their considerable pedigrees into play with unexpected and original results. Contradicting expectations of a massive blow-out of sound, everyone plays with remarkable, effective restraint. Atmospheric and layered, this latest release features bits and pieces of identifiable rock-moves peeking out from under a thick blanket of hard-to-identify drift. Based on live recordings made on a lengthy tour of Italy in 2010, Hazel has been extensively edited and supplemented, but without losing the elemental sound of a group playing live together. Though there's plenty of weird ambient sound to be heard, this isn't a sound- effects/'pedalboard' record. Like the previous En Form for Bla, Noble's drums anchor the music with spare and considered playing, sometimes lashing out with abstract punctuation, and other times laying out a Can-like groove. O'Malley's guitar is also restrained, providing a bed for O'Sullivan's constantly morphing Rhodes, synths and electronic effects. Kristoffer Rygg contributes a rousing vocal incantation to 'Ermanna' and peppers the mix with ghostly modular details. Æthenor's catalog continues to be not like anything else out there right now. Sleeve designed by Stephen O'Malley."

SONNY MURRAY With ALBERT AYLER/DON CHERRY/HENRY GRIMES/LOUIS WORRELL/LEROI JONES [AMIRI BARAKA] - Sonny's Time Now (Skokiaan 005; Germany) Skokiaan present a reissue of Sonny Murray's Sonny's Time Now, originally released in 1965. Only a few months after recording Ghosts (SKOK 001CD, 1965) with Albert Ayler, Sonny Murray released his first album as a leader. Sonny's Time Now is one of the holy grails for collectors and aficionados of free avant garde jazz music from the 1960s. This 2016 vinyl reissue is the first vinyl reissue of the album in 30 years. The last CD reissue was in 1991. Albert Ayler and his Ghosts album from 1965 was already a hard thing to swallow, except for the most adventurous explorers of the furthest corners of the border districts of music. An unconventional view on onomatopoeia is necessary to enter this world and drummer Sonny Murray went another step ahead on Sonny's Time Now. The lengthy piece "Virtue" presents an ever pulsating wall of rhythm that sounds like a wuthering ocean with the horn section going nuts on top. The saxes and trumpets are constantly erupting and it is a challenge for the listener to find the melodies among their output of sound. "Justice", another lengthy piece divided into two parts, continues the quest "Virtue" began. The atmosphere of these free improvisations slowly swallows the listener and the shrieks of the saxophones and trumpets, frees souls from physical bodies. What feels like an impenetrable thicket of sound at first is soon enlightening and a memorable structure within all the chaos. The same year that John Coltrane took the last step away from traditional jazz and music in general, this album was equally as radical but seems to have disappeared within the depths of music history. The most radical piece on this record comes with the shorter "Black Art", a writing by activist and controversial poet Amiri Baraka read by LeRoy Jones and underlined with freak-out eruptions from Sonny Murray and his mates. This is the right soundtrack for a cathartic meditation. For a must have for fans of Coltrane. "The Lie" is not featured on the original release.

SAHIB SHIHAB With ALLAN BOTSCHINSKY/OLE MOLIN/NIELS-HENNING ORSTED PEDERSEN/ALEX RIEL - Sahib's Jazz Party (Skokiaan 006; Germany) Skokiaan present a reissue of Sahib Shihab's Sahib's Jazz Party, originally released in 1964. In a time before jazz music went free and avant-garde, there were a couple of inspired souls who put an emphasis on extended jams and improvised, yet melodic parts based on a rather repetitive rhythm background. The result in turning away from the rather artistic and complicated bebop was the modal jazz that came up in the second half of the 1950s, lasting as the leading style until the mid to late '60s. Sahib Shihab can be seen as one of the protagonists of modal jazz despite being more of an underground star in the scene and being more popular in Europe than in the USA, from where he originates. He often worked as a member of an ensemble but had a couple of albums out as a bandleader. Sahib's Jazz Party is his third album as a bandleader. Recorded live in its entirety Sahib's Jazz Party features a few highly entertaining announcements by the master himself leaving the impression that Sahib was a bit far out that day. The performance is beautiful and passionate. He plays flute and saxophone backed up by a Danish jazz orchestra even with an electric guitar, in clean mode of course. Especially in the third part of the "Conversation" piece the dialogues between saxophone and trumpet are amazing while in "Charade" Shihab uses his flute to conjure a mind-relaxing atmosphere. The rhythms are all quite hot and whipping. The drummers must be some kind of madmen. Yes, there are two drummers indicated for the "Conversation" long track and the ever pulsating and vibrating rhythm patterns will prove that right. Bass and guitar rather back up everything and fill the gaps with simple notes which add just enough to leave the whole picture feeling full and round. Sahib's Jazz Party holds the same level as the most appreciated works of Miles Davis and John Coltrane during their modal jazz stint. All-in-all, the whole band is steaming and so full of passion, any listener will be electrified without fail.

MAYA HOMBURGER & BARRY GUY - Star (Ergodos 003; Ireland) Maya Homburger and Barry Guy present Star. Star features three meditative string duos by Irish composers Benedict Schlepper-Connolly, Garrett Sholdice and Simon O'Connor. These three works, each composed specifically for the incomparable Baroque violin/double bass duo of Maya Homburger and Barry Guy, are a reminder of the value of concentration, quietude, and slowness. Released 2011

PIERRE HENRY, MICHEL VITOLD & SILVIA MONFORT - L'Occident Est Bleu/L'An Cinquante-Six (Aurora Rising 3002; Germany) Aurora Rising present the first vinyl reissue of L'Occident Est Bleu/L'An Cinquante-Six, originally released in 1958. Pierre Henry is most popular among rock fans for his collaboration with the English band Spooky Tooth in 1969 but he already had a great reputation as a composer and performer in the field of modern classics, musique concrète and pioneering electronic avant-garde. So it is obvious that there have been quite a few albums by him and in cooperation with other artists not necessarily from the field of music. L'Occident Est Bleu/L'An Cinquante-Six features sound contributions by Pierre Henry, and spoken word performances by popular French actors Michel Vitold and Silvia Montfort based on two texts by fellow actor and singer Claude Pascal. It can be seen as an audio book rather than a regular music record backed with sounds. All the texts are performed in French and they focus on dark themes. The musical part of this album is also quite intense with a haunting atmosphere, droning and disturbing at times. The drone and musique concrète aspects show the roots of what should become cosmic music in the late '60s and early '70s performed mostly by artists such as Tangerine Dream. And indeed there are a few moments here that remind me of the classic Zeit (1972) by Edgar Froese and his mates. A sound experiment, a twisted and creepy manifestation of weird thoughts in something that is loosely connected to music. A challenge for sure, but if you love the obscure and have a heart for avant garde music you are welcome to this first ever reissue of a long time vanished record. Includes two bonus tracks.

OTTO LUENING / VLADIMIR USSACHEVSKY / WILLIAM BERGSMA - A Poem In Cycles And Bells & Other Music For Tape Recorder (Aurora Rising 3003; Germany) Aurora Rising present a reissue of A Poem In Cycles And Bells & Other Music For Tape Recorder, originally released in 1957. This record is a relic of electronic music that happened before anybody even spoke about rock music. In 1957, this compilation of electronic and orchestral compositions by the three masterminds Otto Luening, Vladimir Ussachevsky and William Bergsma saw the light of the stars for the first time and has become a cult piece among lovers of electronic space music since then, despite the fact that only the first side features the so called tape compositions of Luening and Ussachevsky from the '50s while Bergsma's lengthy piece from the B side gets performed by a regular orchestra consisting of living beings. Lay back and drift away upon this stream of sound, a very human effort all-in-all. All instruments are real and even though this piece of music moves within the narrow borderlines of classic orchestral music patterns, there is a warm and gentle flow of energy pouring out of it and reaching out. Luening and Ussachevsky, on the other hand, work with sounds of undefined origin recorded on tape reels which are their main instruments, creating something new out of everything. The result is dark and gloomy. It pulls the listener away from an earthly existence and drags them out into space, to the furthest corners of the cosmos. This is the right music for all lovers of spaced out sounds from the days before the synthesizer. For lovers of all the late '60s and '70s stuff like early Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Organisation and Cluster. These compositions, are on par with all the newer and now legendary cosmic music acts but created ten to twenty years prior. This long out of print gem is one of the important steps towards every kind of electronic music that was successful ever since.

3/4HADBEENELIMINATED - Speak To Me (Black Truffle 023; Australia) Black Truffle present Speak To Me, the sixth full-length release from 3/4HadBeenEliminated, the Italian trio of Stefano Pilia, Claudio Rocchetti and Valerio Tricoli. Based on source material recorded in Bologna and Berlin over the course of several years, the album is made up of two side-long pieces meticulously constructed in post-production by Tricoli in his singularly dense and unpredictable style. Although their live performances have always been entirely improvised, in their recorded work the group focuses on using improvised recordings as source material for compositions built up through layering, editing and analog manipulation, extending the practices of Teo Macero, Faust and This Heat. Melancholic instrumental ruminations sit alongside cracked electronics, concrete sounds and Tricoli's whispered vocals, drawn together into dense assemblages animated by gradual transformations and sudden jump cuts. Beginning from the abstractions of their self-titled debut release in 2004, the group embarked on a trajectory that saw them move toward near-song structures, Tricoli's voice becoming a dominant element amid an increasingly dense and layered production style. On Speak To Me, however, the listener feels confronted by the ghost of music, sonic memories echoing across a psychedelic expanse. Evacuated of any clear structure, the music becomes a reverb-saturated morass, from which crystalline details momentarily emerge: shimmering echoed guitar, bowed double bass, tactile hand percussion, skittering electronics. Suffused with a darkly pensive atmosphere, Speak To Me is an elegant summation of the distinctive blend of electroacoustic techniques, instrumental improvisation and contemporary psychedelia pioneered by 3/4HadBeenEliminated over the last decade. LP design by Stephen O'Malley with striking artwork by Stefano Pilia. Vinyl cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.

MARISA ANDERSON - Into The Light (Chaos Kitchen 006; USA) "On her newest release, Into the Light, Marisa Anderson leaves Appalachia and the Delta blues behind as she journeys west, into the heart of the sun. Written as the soundtrack to an imaginary science-fiction western film, the record's ten songs trace the story of a visitor lost and wandering on the shifting borderlands of the Sonoran desert. Into the Light is shimmering and cinematic, the pieces built around pedal steel, lap steel and electric piano as well as Anderson's signature guitar sound."

ANDRZEJ KORZYNSKI - Possession (Finders Keepers 062; UK) Finders Keepers Records presents Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski's previously unreleased electro/orchestral/experimental score for Andrzej Zulawski's surrealist 1981 horror classic, Possession. These 25 cues were written and recorded exclusively for the 1981 award-winning film starring Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neil, but due to the progressive, stark and modernist nature of the finished film, less than half of them made it on to the actual director's cut - leaving many of the tracks on this package totally unheard outside of Korzynski's studio. The intended Possession score in its entirety marks an important axis in Korzynski's career where his various musical disciplines overlap. In one respect it marks his first forays into to synth-driven electronics and disco drum machines, while other tracks epitomize the well-honed techniques used in previous Zulawski scores, such as Third Part Of The Night (1971) and The Devil (1972), which rely on his inimitable orchestral arrangements and combination of clavinet, Rhodes, piano and electric guitar. This is the first time any of this music has been released outside of the film's original context and is packaged on CD, vinyl and conceptual green compact cassettes housed in miniature clamshell cases reminiscent of the film's original VHS release that briefly adorned UK video shops in the early 1980s (before being banned by over excited censors as one of the unproscecuted "video nasties" in the infamous 1983 tape cull). The important restoration of Korzynski's music aims to shed new light on the seldom manufactured productions of the composer whose vast cinematic catalogue warrants overdue global status alongside other golden era Eastern European composers such as Kryzstof Komeda, Jan Hammer and Zdenek Liska - not to mention the best of the French and Italian soundtrackers, such as Roubaix, Vannier and Nicolai. Duplicated and carefully remastered directly from Korzynski's original master tapes this album boasts the uninhibited studio experiments and retains the pre-cut ambience. "Best soundtrack of 2012

BLACK HOST [GERALD CLEAVER/DARIUS JONES/COOPER-MOORE/BRANDON SEABROOK/PASCAL NIGGENKEMPER] - Life in the Sugar Candle Mines (Northern Spy 039; USA) Black Host features Gerald Cleaver on drums & sound design, Darius Jones on alto sax, Brandon Seabrook on guitar & banjo, Cooper-Moore on piano and Pascal Niggenkemper on bass. New York-based drummer and bandleader Gerald Cleaver is a pan-stylistic powerhouse. His massive, turn-on-a-dime rhythmic approach is unavoidably factual yet swinging. It is no wonder that Cleaver is in demand - including work with artists as diverse as Ivo Perelman, Roscoe Mitchell, Matthew Shipp, Simon Nabatov, David Torn, Joe Morris and William Parker. Cleaver's Black Host is a weighty quintet, yet many of its nodes peek through a veil of psychedelic rock and electronic-derived haze. A sheen of reverb pulls direct statements into diffuse, receding areas, making its sonic architecture complex and surprising. With Cleaver manning the drum chair, the group is fleshed out by alto saxophonist Darius Jones, pianist Cooper-Moore, guitarist Brandon Seabrook and Cologne/NYC contrabassist Pascal Niggenkemper, all distinct but complementary players. Mr. Cooper-Moore is a veteran soloist and longtime collaborator with doyens of the avant-garde including the late saxophonist David S. Ware and bassist William Parker. An inventor, storyteller and multi-instrumentalist, the timelessness of Cooper-Moore's approach was, as Cleaver tells it, integral to the formation of Black Host. He says, "I just wanted to capture a sound that reflects all my loves at the present moment: the activity and excitement generated in static sound and extreme dynamics, melodicism within heavy texture, deep-rooted groove, unchained abandon and the power and revelation of recurring form." Juxtaposing the rangy strokes of Cleaver's drums and Cooper-Moore's piano with the ebullient proselytizing of Jones and the more unhinged attack of Seabrook and Niggenkemper makes for a heady stew indeed. The group's debut disc, Life in the Sugar Candle Mines, features nine of Cleaver's own compositions totaling over an hour of music. For something this dense and colorful the time passes quickly and one never feels it's 'overfull.' The material is rendered with force and clarity; while undeniably a band to be experienced live, their corporeal absence won't be noticed by the cones of one's speakers. Cleaver's resonant backbeat is a rubbery metronome on the opening Hover and its searing alto/guitar interplay, while Ayler Children is primarily a fantasia for Cooper-Moore's rangy blocks and Seabrook's flinty surf-rock inversions (Henry Vestine and Bobby Few would be pleased). Citizen Rose is atmospheric but tense in a way that recalls Terje Rypdal and Jan Garbarek's unsettled plateaus of the early '70s. Frantic post-punk skree and steely saxophone preaching limn the bowl of the forceful Sunday. After the clattering stasis of Amsterdam/Frames, looped grit supports the rhythm section's agitated shuffle and Jones' spectral keen on Gromek. Wrestling is warped, massive and loping (including Seabrook's cassette samples), though it soon gives way to lush, filmic qualities snaking through May Be Home. For five musicians who are independently shaping and reshaping the creative music milieu, Black Host is a super-group that is unique in its own right. - Bruce Lee Gallanter/Downtown Music Gallery
