New on Mark Wastellâ€™s Confront Label:
DEREK BAILEY & COMPANY With SIMON H. FELL / MARK WASTELL / WILL GAINES - Klinker (Confront CS 04; UK) â€œThis recording is more than just a document of a musical performance, it is a time capsule which magically allows the listener to travel back in time and space. But this is not simply a question of a date on a calendar or a point on a map; Klinker gives us a second chance (or for some, a first chance) to luxuriate in an atmosphere, a performance environment and a specific combination of musicians which we will never be able to experience again.
The most obvious and immediate thing that this recording brings back is the living, human presence of Derek and Will. In publishing the entire performance from start to finish, this Confront release allows us to experience these much-missed artists at work with a degree of intimacy and familiarity absent from (for example) prestigious festival performances. Of course, any new addition to the Bailey discography is an exciting development, but I feel I must also mention just how well Will Gaines plays (and yes, I use that term deliberately) on this gig. For those who might be unsure why Derek was always so happy to play with Will, listen to how Will uses his strongly idiosyncratic technique with invention, flexibility and imperturbability in the Company context. Similarly, hearing Bailey and Gaines exchange one-liners reminds me just how strongly Derekâ€™s early career in light entertainment imprinted his ideas about musical practice and performance ethics; with his combination of show business schmaltz and improvisational acuity Will was a marvellous foil for Derek. Listen to Will, having dangerously skirted raconteur territory in his solo introduction to WG / MW, suddenly getting serious and creative when Mark decides to join him. But most of all, listen to the constantly re-inventing interaction between these four relaxed performers, one distant Thursday night in De Beauvoir Town.
For this recording is also a tribute to the London Improvised Music Club scene of the late 20th century. During the 1990s I played extremely regularly in clubs such as The Klinker, sometimes as often as three or four times a week; the idea of playing frequently in low-pressure situations, with an ever-changing roster of colleagues, was the very essence of improvised music for many musicians of my generation. For all kinds of reasons, Improvised Music in London no longer has the luxury of a seemingly never-ending supply of informal musician-run clubs. So, enjoy this marvellous opportunity to join us in the hot, sweaty, noisy, beery atmosphere of The Klinker Club in August 2000. - Simon H. Fell, January 2018

GEORG GRAEWE / MARK SANDERS - Affretando (Confront CS 80; UK) Featuring: Georg Graewe on piano and Mark Sanders on drums. Recorded live on May 20, 2016 at 21st Jazz Cerkno Festival, Slovenia. Pianist Georg Graewe and drummer Mark Sanders have been playing together since 1995, when Sanders joined the 1995/96 incarnation of THE GEORG GRAEWE QUINTET (w/ Mats Gustafsson, Sebi Tramontana and Mark Dresser). They have since performed as a duo and in different combinations with Evan Parker, Gail Brand, Paul Dunmall, John Edwards a.o. Together with John Butcher and bassist Wilbert de Joode they are part of the newly reformed FRISQUE CONCORDANCE quartet.
PHIL MINTON & ROGER TURNER - Scraps of Heard (Confront CS 86; UK) Featuring Phil Minton - singing, etc. and Roger Turner on drums & percussion. Audience recording from a concert in Hanover, Germany 23 January 2016. This duo has been together for a long while and from the sound of this disc, their playing has evolved quite a both through the years. There are three previous discs on the Leo and Emanem labels. Anyone who has witnessed extreme vocalist Phil Minton live, knows that he is not afraid to digging deeply into himself and unleashing a wide variety of strange & wonderful vocal sounds. There will be a loner review when I Get a chance to hear this disc. - BLG
DEREK BAILEY & SIMON H. FELL - The Complete August 15th, 2001 (Confront CCS 22; UK) Featuring Derek Bailey on acoustic guitar and Simon H. Fell on double bass. â€œThis is the full recording - freshly remastered - of the 2001 duo gig, an excerpt from which appeared in 2002 on a long-deleted Sound 323 mini-CD which was voted a record of the year by THE WIRE magazine in 2002.
Here at last is the full performance in all its exhilarating acoustic power; an unplugged (but very intense) set from a hot and summery Wednesday afternoon, recorded in the basement of Sound 323 in London by Tim Fletcher.
â€œFell and Bailey goad each other into some of the most impassioned playing I've heard from either artist. The opening is explosive, with sonic shards and fragments flying across the sound stage, the two instruments at times indistinguishable in the sound mass. The later part of the track yields some respite, with arco bass and gentle atonal guitar lines - 'insect music' maybe - but the overall tenor is muscular and intense. The antagonists show no signs of flagging in their search for new instrumental sonorities - at one point I could have sworn there was a dog yelping in there. The result could become quite a collector's item. Aesthetically, it's a delightfully minimal little product ... it might be a good idea to get yours soon.â€ - Andy Hamilton, The Wire
* ZION80 With JON MADOF / FRANK LONDON / GREG WALL / JESSICA LURIE / BRIAN MARSELLA / YOSHIE FRUCHTER / SHANIR BLUMENKRANZ / et al - Warriors (Chant Records CR 002; USA) Zion80 features Jon Madof (from Rashanim) on guitar & compositions, Yosie Fruchter (Sandcatchers) on guitar, Greg Wall (Hasidic New Wave) on tenor sax, Jessica Lurie (Billy Tipton Memorial Sax Qt) on bari & alto saxes & flute, Zach Mayer on bari sax, Frank London (Klezmatics) on trumpet, Brian Marsella (Banquet of the Spirits) on keyboards, Shanir Blumenkranz (Abraxas) on bass, Yuval Lion & Marlon Sobol on drums & percussion. Zion80 have been around for the past five years and have two great discs out on the Tzadik label, the second of which is on John Zornâ€™s â€˜Book of Angelsâ€™ series. Guitarist/bandleader Jon Madof wrote four of the six sounds here, the other two by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach.
I must admit that I am a big fan of this band and have seen them live nearly a dozen times. Their music is joyous, infectious and makes me want to dance, go wild! They have updated that great Fela-like groove and made it sound completely contemporary. Besides Fela, Zion80 also draw from reggae/dub like grooves. On, Rabbi Carlebachâ€™s â€œVâ€™Shamruâ€, the guitars play that great chicka, chicka reggae sound while the horns provide feisty soul chorus sound and short, tasty solos. The sessions was recorded at Bill Laswellâ€™s Orange Music studio by James Dellacoma, hence the sound is superb, warm, clean and well-balanced. There are some special ingredients here that make this delectable stew even better: Jon Madof is an incredible jazz/rock/blues guitarist, but only gets to stretch out in short solos, making every note count. The only special ingredient is the keyboard work of Brian Marsella, who plays organ, melodica and some sort of synth, who always adds just the right amount magical, oft-psych (gotta dig that Farfisa!) keyboards to the blend. My favorite song is called â€œHoly Brotherâ€ and it makes me smile just thinking about it. The repeating riff at the center of this song sounds like an ancient melody handed down through the millennia in dreams and celebrations, like good medicine for our souls to be nourished by. I am inspired and will play this disc again while I cook dinner tonight and sip on some wine. Time to warm up and feel better after a long hard winter. Thanks to Jon Madof and the rest of Zion80 for making our days better! Check out this groovy video of the opening song, â€œPardesâ€ here: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=436864e9d6&rtm=1223585316480#search/jon madof/162212897d3cfbe8?projector=1
* ZION80 will be playing at Symphony Space in NYC on April 12th as part of a John Zorn triple bill!
BEN GOLDBERG / MICHAEL COLEMAN - Practitioner (BAG 014; USA) Featuring Ben Goldberg on B-flat & contra-alto clarinets and Michael Coleman on piano, Wurlitzer electric piano, Korg, Yamaha & Casiotone synths. This release is an obvious label of love and an impressive tribute to the late Steve Lacy. It turns out that clarinetist Ben Goldberg had the chutzpa to ask soprano saxist Steve Lacy for a lesson in 1985 and Mr. Lacy granted his wish. A the end of the lesson Mr. Lacy gave Mr. Goldberg a copy of his latest disc, clued â€˜Hocus Pocusâ€™. All of the pieces were created by Mr. Lacy as exercises to challenge himself. Each piece was a portrait of or an homage to a particular artist. On this disc, Mr. Goldberg plays the songs from â€œHocus Pocusâ€, with keyboard wiz Michael Coleman. Mr. Lacy was also a baseball fan so in order to expand on the tribute, a set of 12 (baseball-like) cards are included here as well. Each card is features a drawing of a different artist on one side and an appropriate poem on the other side. Starting with â€œIntroductionâ€, the music is tranquil when it begins, the hushed clarinet and soft yet eerie electric piano set a somber pace. Mr. Coleman keeps things subdued on â€œHallmarkâ€, the keyboards floating calming in space. For â€œHurtlesâ€ things get darker, more mysterious spun. Instead of the stark sound of one of Mr. Lacyâ€™s numerous solo soprano records, this duo do a fine job of expanding these pieces with an orchestrated sense of craft which makes them even richer. I Like that â€œHeebee Jeebiesâ€ almost sounds like Terry Riley has added some spacey electronic keyboard sounds to a most hypnotic solemn gathering. Mr. Goldberg switches to low, end grumble of contra-alto clarinet, the vibe even more spacious and subdued. Mr. Golbergâ€™s quaint clarinet brings this enchanting disc to a lovely, soft landing. Superb on all counts. - Bruce Lee Gallanter
CD 12 Cards $20 [LTD Edition][a handful are here now & another dozen will be delivered early next week)
The last time we listed this below disc, late last year, it was not officially released yet and we had just a few copies. It is now available so dig inâ€¦
BEN GOLDBERG / BRIAN CHASE / RON REICH - Title of Work (BAG 013; USA) Featuring Ben Goldberg on clarinet, Rob Reich on accordion and Brian Chase on drums. West clarinetist, Ben Goldberg, recently did a week at The Stone (10/10-10/15/17) and played with a different assemblage of musicians each night. I caught four out of six nights and was amazed at the diversity and creativity of each set. Mr. Goldberg also played five Sundays at DMG last year (2016), working with a variety of local greats, often finding new kindred spirits to work with. The person that organized this session is drummer Brian Chase, who has blossomed as a gifted Downtown musician working with Andrea Parkins, Jeremiah Cymerman and Alan Licht. Bay area accordionist Rob Reich has worked with Darren Johnston and Tin Hat. It seems that it was Brian Chase who organized this session, which is an all improvised date. Commencing with a piece called â€œWhorlsâ€, the trio sounds like it is moving in shifting spurts, slow yet self-assured. â€œEidericâ€ sounds like eerie chamber music with wheezing accordion, quaint clarinet and modest, yet minimal drums. This is an acoustic trio, who seem more interested in the tone or the timbre of each instrument, carefully blending the warm, wooden sounds of the clarinet, accordion and drums together. The clarinet and accordion sound especially enchanting as they weave their lines around one another, it is often hard to tell them apart. The trio often sound like they are taking their time and in no hurray to go too far out. The music often has a sublime, somber quality which feels just right. The results sound like a soundtrack for an animated fairy tale, fun and slightly quirky with a few unexpected twists and turns. So tasty with minimal seasoning. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG
Nearly ten years ago, the head of the French-based Shiin label dropped by DMG to drop off a couple of CDs from composer Elaine Radigue. Both the cover artwork and music production were done with the utmost care, resulting in a much desired collectable item. Since then, the label and myself had lost touch, we had no idea the label had continued, releasing around a dozen impossible to find audio & visual treasures. Earlier this week, Mr. Roux, finally returned to DMG and left us with a handful of titles. Right now we have just 1-3 copies of 5 different titles from this label. Mr. Roux claims he will return in May and leave us with enough CDs to cover all existing orders. So aside from selling the few CDs we now have, we are taking pre-orders for the next batch. You can do some research by going to this website: /shiiin.com/accueil.php?L=fr
SHIIIN Label List, now in stock:
ELIANE RADIGUE - L'ile Re-Sonante (Shiiin 01; France) "The success of a piece such as 'L'Ile Re-sonante' lies in the fact that, more than the happy outcome of a synthesis of the composer's earlier work, it now seems to be the result of a natural osmosis. It is a perfectly autonomous work which, in accordance with her wishes, ends up escaping from its author because of the infinitely varied interpretations that can be placed on it every time it is heard." -Daniel Caux "For myself, this sounds like a drone that glows, resonates rather slowly and adds subtle layers of electronic waves as it evolves. Quite beautiful and delightfully haunting. - BLG "Eliane Radigue is a French composer associated with Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry. While her music is minimal, a better description would be music that slowly evolves. Slowly evolves-ism, evolutionism? Deep drones from her trusty ARP analog synthesizer rise up and blanket the room, phantom tones appear and exit. Early in the composition a choir and/or maybe an organ loops in one channel only to fade away a while later and we are again drifting on a sea of drones. After a while sweeping wave sounds show up like slow wind on Saturn. Fans of Eliane's previous work will not be disappointed, other's should get acquainted ASAP. Also be sure to check out the interview with her in the Wire #260 and Charles Curtis performing Naldjorlak at the Tenri Cultural Institute on December 5th at 9 pm." - Art Gumm, guest reviewer.
CD $25 [Limited Edition]
ELIANE RADIGUE - Occam Ocean (Shiiin EER 1; France) Mindblowing edition, comes with a 40 page booklet. What can be said about Ã‰liane Radigue? International treasure? Sonic saint? The most important composer living today? Even these grand designations fall short of doing the composer the justice she deserves. Born in 1932, beginning her life in music in Paris during the late 1950 and early 60â€™s, working under Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry, for more than half a century she has carved a singular path in sound, sculpting one of the most astonishing bodies of work that the world has ever seen - transcending the efforts of her teachers and nearly anyone else. We are thrilled to announce a brand new double CD set - Occam Ocean Vol. 1, the first recorded installment of the sprawling, remarkable, and evolutionary work which has occupied much of her focus in recent years. Issued within the French imprint Shiinâ€™s already remarkable catalog, it is nothing short of a historic event.

IVAN WYSCHNEGRADSKY / ALAIN BANCQUART / ALAIN MOENE - Pianos Quart de Ton (Shiiin 10; France) Ivan Wyschnegradsky (1893-1979) is undoubtedly an essential figure in the music of the twentieth century. Pioneer of music in micro-intervals, heir to the thought of Scriabin, he left many works in third, fourth, fifth, sixth and even twelfth of tone. His research, theoretical, organologiques and compositional, paved the way for other composers who have in turn devoted their work to music in micro-intervals, which is probably, as Alain Bailey says, the music of the future.
The CD includes, in the first record, three works representative of three distinct periods of the production of Ivan Wyschnegradsky: Meditation on two themes of the day of existence for cello and piano of 1918, so spoke Zarathustra for 4 pianos awarded at a distance of 1/4 tone, work admired since its creation in 1937 by Olivier Messiaen, and the 4th symphonic fragment of 1956, for 4 pianos and Ondes Martenot, written in full control of his microtonal language. These are joined by two recent works commissioned by Alain MoÃ«ne and Alain Bailey, composers who have always devoted themselves to writing in micro-intervals. By their total diversity and originality, all these works prove how much these musics can touch us and convince us in their obviousness.
CHARLEMAGNE PALESTINE - The Golden Mean (Shiiin 02; France) The golden mean' for two BÃ¶sendorfer Imperial pianos. Chapelle de la Sorbonne, Paris, November 2, 1979, festival d'automne. Recorded by Radio France for a broadcast by Daniel Caux for France Culture (Atelier de CrÃ©ation Radiophonique). Very luxurious object (which explains The price !) : each CD is hand-made, one by one, and each box is fully covered by The velvet material!
CD $38 [Limited Edition CD in beautiful handmade covers]
LUC FERRARI & BRUNHILD - Contes Sentimentaux (Shiiin 8; France) These pieces have been made between 1989 and 1994 for the German radio. Brunhild and Luc Ferrari are speaking around the pieces from Luc like 'Petite symphonie intuitive pour un paysage de printemps', 'Ce qu'Ã vu le Cers', 'Collection de petites piÃ¨ces' (36 enfilades pour piano et magnÃ©tophone), 'Music promenade' among others, describing small details and anecdotes. They speak in French and German and consider the recorder as a scratchpad.
"The success of a piece such as "L'Ile re-sonante" liesin the fact that, more than he happy outcome of a synthesis of the composer's earlier work, it now seems to be the result of a natural osmosis. It is a perfectly autonomous work which, in accordance with her wishes, ends up be escaping from its author because of the infinitely varied interpretations that can be placed on it every time is heard." (Daniel Caux)

OTOMO YOSHIHIDE / XAVIER CHARLES - The Difference Between The Two Clocks (Textile Records 014; France) Project featuring the French multi-instrumentalist Xavier Charles and the most well-known experimental Japanese musician Otomo Yoshihide. Recorded during Xavier Charles's first Japanese tour in 2005, this album is not a matter of swapping digital file but a real musical collaboration between two of the genre's most talented composers. The duo explores the relationship between sound and silence, focusing on non-beat rhythm and minimalist texture and volume. Together their sounds create a monochrome mental image in a field of ambient drone and glitches.
JACKIE-O MOTHERF*CKER - Valley Of Fire (Textile Records 016; France) Three finely crafted songs on side one, and on side two, a 20-minute classic psychedelic, dirt road journey. Valley Of Fire begins with "Sing" an original composition with vocals by Eva Salens (Inca Ore), written in collaboration with a local street preacher, the song addresses the importance of the individual voice, rising above a rotten political structure. Track two, titled "Valley Of Fire", another Jackie-O Motherfu*cker original composition, was recorded in Leeds, England over the winter of 2006, with further production in Portland by Adam Forkner. Track three, is a JOMF arrangement of a Beach Boys song called "The Tree" from their lonesome and wasted record, Surf's Up (1971).
ORETA FUMACA - Fumaca Preta (Soundway 067; UK) FumaÃ§a Preta's hard hitting, free-wheeling debut LP brings together elements of tropicalia, psychedelic rock, fuzz funk, musique concrete, acid house, radiophonic electronics, metal, voodoo, and African, Brazilian and Latin rhythms.
MERIDIAN BROTHERS - Salvadora Robot (Soundway 064; UK) Meridian Brothers's fifth studio album is the bizarre and wonderful Salvadora Robot. Heading deeper into the tropical rhythms of Latin America and the Caribbean each song on the album focuses on a different style and playfully twists it into Meridian Brothers' surreal landscape.
THE RESIDENTS - Fingerprince: Preserved Edition (Cryptic Corp 004; Planet Earth) â€œProduced with The Cryptic Corporation, and with full access to The Residents' extensive tape archive, this package explores and expands the classic third album and related 1976-1977 material, as well as the album's evolution on the live stage.

HAROLD McNAIR WITH ORNETTE COLEMAN'S SIDEMEN With ALAN BRANSCOMBE / DAVID IZENZON / CHARLES MOFFETT - Affectionate Fink (Monkey Dog MDBJ 003; Germany) Monkey Dog present a reissue of Affectionate Fink from Harold McNair With Ornette Coleman's Sidemen, originally released in 1965. An incredible record from reedman Harold McNair -- one of the key Jamaican jazz players who hit the London scene in the same post-colonial wave as Joe Harriott and Shake Keane -- and a standout of the bunch. Harold's a hell of a talent on both tenor and flute. Although he might be best known for his background work on late '60s Donovan albums, he really soars here as a soloist, working with Ornette Coleman's group which includes members David Izenzon on bass and Charles Moffett on drums, both of whom swing wonderfully in McNair's company. The album bills Izenzon and Moffett strongly on the cover -- as if they're one of the main attractions -- but what's most compelling is the way that McNair and pianist Alan Branscombe bring the American musicians into their own sort of groove -- a modal, soulful style that's completely sublime - and which makes the album a killer all the way through. Titles include the original "Affectionate Fink", plus great takes on "I Love You", "O Barquinho", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", and "Here's That Rainy Day" -- all soulful swingers.
MASAHIKO TOGASHI QUARTET With MOTOTERU TAKAGI / MASAYUKI TAKAYANAGI / MOTO YOSHIZAWA - We Now Create: Music For Strings, Winds And Percussions (Monkey Dog 002; Germany) Monkey Dog present a reissue of Japanese free jazz group Togashi Masahiko Quartet's stunning â€˜We Now Create: Music For Strings, Winds And Percussions/, originally released in 1969. Featuring Masahiko Togashi on drums & percussion; Mototeru Takagi on tenor sax & cornpipe; Masayuki Takayanagi on guitar and Moto Yoshizawa on bass & cello. This is considered to be the beginning of the Free/Jazz scene in Japan. An amazing release! - BLG
BOB MARLEY & THE WAILERS - 30 Years Ago - The Classical Edition (Charly Records 012; Germany) Marking the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley's death in May 1981, 30 Years Ago collects highlights from Marley's pre-Island Records recordings. Bob Marley had already established himself as the leading voice of reggae music before his signing to Island Records in 1972 and his rise to international super-stardom. This is evident from these 20 gems from his earlier recordings made with The Wailers, which many reggae authorities consider to be his finest and purest work. Very much roots-based, they are in marked contrast to Marley's later ones for Island, where his sound was tailored towards the lucrative rock market. These remarkable recordings from the late '60s and early '70s remain as testament to Marley's genius as both a songwriter and a singer. Comprising in the main of titles from his sessions with famed producer Lee Perry, the set features several titles which Marley was successfully to return to in later years, such as "Trenchtown Rock", "Lively Up Yourself", and "Natural Mystic". The set also contains several sought-after titles and versions as well as his original recording of "Concrete Jungle", a highlight of his Catch A Fire debut album for Island (1973).

HARUMI - Harumi (Early Dawn 1804; Germany) Recorded by Tom Wilson (who else?) for Verve in 1967 and 1968 in New York, this set originally appeared on a double LP (which has been reissued on both vinyl and CD by Fallout). This is one of the wildest and most unbelievably ambitious recordings to come from the psychedelic era. Harumi (a mystery man who recorded one more album before vanishing into the ether) could write pop songs and sing them. He also sounds like he did a lot of acid. Harumi (who sings and speaks in English), Wilson, arrangers Harvey Vinson and Larry Fallon, and engineer Gary Kellegren assembled a tripped-out collection of pop, Eastern folk, and experimental music and production techniques, with sounds, textures, and atmospheres that incorporated everything from strings and horns to Japanese folk instruments to vibraphones and (of course) plenty of guitars and drums and organ. Of the 13 cuts here, 11 are of conventional length and are utterly seductive in their hypnotic power and pop brilliance. The last two, "Twice Told Tales of the Pomegranate Forest" and "Samurai Memories," are 24 minutes and 18 minutes long, respectively. These two have plenty of cosmic spoken word by (Emperor) Rosko [legendary DJ at WNEW] and Harumi, and on the past by his parents and his sister. The first of these, the longer one, is a bit difficult to take with its slow pace, minimal orchestration, and nearly nonsensical story (that's what the remote is for). The second one, with its discotheque go-go boots beat and orchestration, phased sounds, and Japanese language, is an exotic masterpiece. It grooves throughout, especially when the electric guitars and strings play counterpoint to one another. Simply put, there is nothing at all like this record in the known universe. It has been compared to the adventurousness of the Mothers of Invention, but only insofar as its wide range. The music here, while a huge compendium of sources, is unlike anything you have ever heard when it is put together. Harumi's self-titled album is simply a classic from the underground brought back into the light. - Thom Jurek
THE MYSTIC ASTROLOGIC CRYSTAL BAND - The Mystic Astrologic Crystal Band (Early Dawn 1801; Germany) Reissue of The Mystic Astrologic Crystal Band's self-titled album, originally released in 1967. LA psychedelic rock outfit from the late '60s -- Sitar, baroque sunshine psych pop at its best. Musically ranging from Beach Boys, over Sgt. Peppers to The Seeds. Imagine a soft version of Max Frost & The Troopers' Wild in the Streets (1968) soundtrack. Includes bonus tracks.
THE ART OF LOVIN' - The Art Of Lovin' (Early Dawn 1802; Germany) Early Dawn present a reissue of The Art Of Lovin's one and only album, originally on the legendary US label Mainstream in 1968. An album full of interesting and imaginative female-fronted psychedelic folk rock. For fans of Jefferson Airplane, Fort Mudge Memorial Dump, Yankee Dollar, etc.
JOANNE ROBERTSON - The Lighter (Textile Records; France) "It's hard to describe exactly how Joanne's songs function. In certain ways they bear a similarity to folk music. Empirically, they fulfill most of that genre's requirements, but they actually hew to none of its conventions. The lyrics, the structures, the rhythms all breathe with a unique quality that feels born of a free improvisational impulse rarely associated with folk music. The surface of this music is so casual it almost defies you to get close enough to really see it, really try to comprehend it. But the closer you listen, the weirder and deeper everything becomes. Transparent and opaque at the same moment, The Lighter represents a brilliant set of songs, made even more luminous by David Cunningham's production touch. Dig it." --Byron Coley, 2007
EVAN PARKER / AGUSTI FERNANDEZ - Tempranillo (Editions Nova NMC 4; Spain) The pairing of legendary soprano saxophonist Evan Parker with Spanish pianist Agusti Fernandez on record is one of those magical dates where everything that happens does so for a reason, and the result clarifies the process without much effort. This is deeply instinctual music that reflects the artist's drive to create against his given means of expression in order to engage it more fully. Parker's skeins of cascading arpeggios are employed throughout here, using his circular breathing technique to take the arc out of arpeggios and render the range of chromatic color useless against his barrage of forced air heroics. Fernandez doesn't play foil so much as accomplice. There is no contrapuntal relationship between pianist and saxophonist. His greased-lightening acrobatics create chords and tone cluster based not on Parker's root idiomatics, but on his sense of intervallic flow and legato phrasing. His unusually large two-handed chords offer a perfect middle drop for Parker to come roiling out of on at least six of this suite's eight parts. Where Parker advances into the mechanics of his horn, Fernandez speaks out of the tonal facility of his pedals and middle register offering Parker the wide way out into the open with his angular dissonances and bleating song lines. There isn't anything remotely "intellectual" about this music, but that said, it is artful carefully considered music that comes from a familiarity with instinctual process. The talk and flow, skip and shove of these two musicians create mannered tensions that are not resolved so much as taken into account. By the time it's all over, and Fernandez touches the last seven 16th notes from Parker's horn with a two chord tonal vamp, the pair will have switched places countless times and will have virtually become one another. This is as fine a duet record as Parker has ever released with anyone, and better than most of them. - Thom Jurek
EVAN PARKER / ALVIN CURRAN / ANDREA CENTAZZO - Real Time Two (Newtone 5040; Italy) â€œCentazzo leads a trio with English saxophonist Evan Parker and American avant-gardist Alvin Curran who performs on his customary synthesizer but also chimes in on piano and trumpet. The two long tracks appear totally improvised but they develop their own peculiar structures, building over time. The results are some of the best of the genre from the 1970s. This CD was not released until 2000, more than 20 years after the recording took place. In truth, the trio was probably way ahead of its time with the kind of sensational (not sensationalist) interaction among the three virtuosi a real treat. This one can purr like a kitten or burn with the best, but it never lags and always offers something appealing.â€ - Steven Loewy
WILLEM BREUKER KOLLEKTIEF - Summer Music: A Paris April 1978 (Marge 5; France) Willem Breuker (tenor, alto and soprano saxophones), Boy Raaymakers (trumpet), Jan Wolf (cor, hornophone & percussions), Willem Van Manen and Bernard Hunnekink (trombones), Bob Driessen (alto sax & clarinet), Maarten Van Norden (tenor and soprano saxes), Leo Cuypers (piano & voice), Arjen Gorter (contrabass) and Rob Verdurmen (drums). The BVHaast label consisted of releases mostly from the great Dutch saxist/composer/bandleader Willem Breuker, more than 3 dozen and most pretty incredible. When Mr. Breuker died in 2010, his longtime ensemble the Kollektief and label soon came to an end. Hence there are very few releases available from Mr. Breuker. This is one of the few left.
WADADA LEO SMITH / JOHN COXSON - Brooklyn Duo (Treader 7; UK) A long planned collaboration between John Coxon and Wadada Leo Smith finally comes to fruition with this odd, fresh sounding recording. Coxon on harmonica, electric guitar and 12 string acoustic with master trumpeter Smith in a duo with Gagaku and Blues undertows. Recorded by Zorn collaborator Jamie Saft in his Brooklyn studio.
CD $20 [LTD Edition of 1,000]
DEREK BAILEY - Lot 74 (Honest Jonâ€™s Records 203; UK) Honest Jon's Records present a reissue of Derek Bailey's Lot 74, originally released by Incus in 1974. Recorded at a private house in West London, the side-long title track is a masterwork: a twenty-two-minute, starkly personal, freely expressive, itchily searching re-casting of orders of rhythm and sound into a new, quicksilver kind of affective and musical polyphony. Never mind the guitarist's championing of "non-idiomatic improvisation", the poet Peter Riley gets the ball rolling in his identification of the various hauntings of Bailey's playing at this time: "mandolins & balalaikas strumming in the distance, George Forby's banjo, Leadbelly's steel 12-string, koto, lute, classical guitar... and others quite outside the field of the plucked string." The five pieces on side two were recorded back home in Hackney around the same time -- with the exception of "Improvisation 104(b)", from the year before (and issued by Incus in its TAPS series of mini reel-to-reel tapes) -- opening with ventriloquized guitar feedback, and taking in some cod banter about colleagues like Mervyn Parker, Siegfried Brotzmann, and Harry Bentink. Crucial.
DEREK BAILEY / TRISTAN HONSINGER - Duo (Honest Jonâ€™s Records 204; UK) Honest Jon's Records present a reissue of Derek Bailey and Tristan Honsinger Duo, originally released by Incus in 1976. Born in Burlington, Vermont, and conservatory-trained in the US, the cellist Tristan Honsinger moved from Montreal to Amsterdam in 1974, quickly linking with Han Bennink and Misha Mengelberg and opening a long and fruitful musical relationship with Derek Bailey. Recorded in 1976, Duo displays a performative musical approach already characterized by the lack of inhibition which would later endear him to The Pop Group: he is knockabout, exclamatory, explosively rhythmic; burping Bach and folk melodies with spasmodic lyricism, in amongst the garrulous textures and accents of his scraping, bowing, and plucking, and gibbering like a monkey; throwing out his arms and stamping the floor, grappling with his instrument like an expert clown, always tripping himself up. You can hear Bailey reveling in the company, as he ranges between scrabbling solidarity and an askance skewering of his partner's antics, on prepared (nineteen-string) and standard electric guitars -- and a Waisvisz Crackle-box, for the garbled, quizzical, cross-species natter which closes "The Shadow". Throughout, the spirited interplay between laconic, analytic wit, and guttural, sometimes slapstick physicality is consistently droll, often laugh-out-loud funny; vigorously alert, alive, and gripping.
THE RED CRAYOLA / 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS/ LOST AND FOUND / et al - Epitaph For A Legend (Charly Records 032LP; Germany) Charly Records present a reissue of the compilation Epitaph For A Legend, originally released in 1980. Formed in Austin, Texas in 1965, the International Artists label is best known for the 13th Floor Elevators' hit singles and seminal albums, but the label also released a series of ground-breaking records from such highly-regarded artists as The Red Crayola, Lost & Found, and The Golden Dawn. The label's success largely came down to the efforts of Lelan Rogers, brother of the country star Kenny. Under Rogers's guidance the label embraced the revolutionary new psychedelic sound that was emerging from Texas. Epitaph For A Legend is a collection of rarities from the label's catalogue which Rogers put together in 1980 for a double vinyl release. This enhanced deluxe reissue of the album features in its gatefold inner extensive new notes from The Mole, of Shindig Magazine. Jon Savage (MOJO) has written a new introduction to his fascinating interview with Lelan Rogers from the original release which now appears as a separate insert. Direct metal mastering. Features The Chayns, The Patterns, The Chapparels, Thursday's Children, The Rubayyat, Sonny Hall, Inner Scene, The Red Crayola, The Emperors, Lost And Found, Big Walter, Dave Allen, Lightnin' Hopkins, Roky Erickson, The Spades, Roky & Clementine Hall, and The 13th Floor Elevators. 180 gram vinyl; gatefold sleeve.

ANDREY TARKOVSKY / EDWARD ARTEMIEV - Solaris. Sound And Vision (Song Cycle CY001BK; UK) Song Cycle Records present the release of Solaris. Sound And Vision, a collector's edition box set, that includes the soundtrack realized by the great Russian composer Edward Artemiev for Andrey Tarkovsky's masterpiece film Solaris (1972). The box includes the soundtrack in two formats: 180 gram, high-quality virgin vinyl and, for the first time, CD. The release is also accompanied by an exclusive, hardcover photo book with unreleased images of the movie set and essays about music and cinema of the duo Artemiev/Tarkovsky, and the BluRay version of the film, in original language with English subtitles; BluRay region free. The set comes in a limited edition of 500 numbered copies.
The collaboration between Tarkovsky and Artemiev started in conjunction with the completion of Solaris when the director was seeking for a film score capable to give back and complete, through the sound, the meaningful images of the film. Back in the day, Artemiev was a member of the legendary Experimental Studio of Electronic Music in Moscow, a place of high experimentation in the field of the electronic music, in the context of which the ANS synthesizer was conceived and employed for the first time for music composition. Invented almost ten years before by Murzin, the ANS was used by Artemiev to create the special sound atmosphere that Tarkovsky was looking for. Artemiev and Tarkovsky's association will also extend to two other undisputed masterpieces of Tarkovsky, Mirror (1975) and Stalker (1979), both forthcoming. A unique artistic joint-venture is that among the duo, in which the musician is seen as a sound organizer, more than a composer, within the process of giving form to a soundscape intertwined completely with the film in its unfolding: always essential and never to be experienced as an accessory element. What emerges here is how and at what degree for Tarkovsky the sound is part of his own existence. Made in collaboration with the Andrey Tarkovsky Institute, Solaris. Sound And Vision is a compelling publication for everyone who wants to dive deep into the Tarkovsky's realm.

JOHN LEE HOOKER - Burnin' (Charly Records 2981; Germany) Charly Records present a reissue of John Lee Hooker's Burnin', originally released on Vee Jay Records in 1962. Burnin' is easily one of the best records, next to It Serves You Right To Suffer (1965) and I'm John Lee Hooker (1959), that the blues master has recorded with a backing band without sacrificing his characteristic, monotonous beat. Along with an absolutely awe-inspiring version of the Leroy Carr track "Blues Before Sunrise" stands the indestructible "Boom, Boom" -- here buffed-up by Joe Hunter's piano -- which became the unofficial anthem of British Invasion bands like the Animals and Them. Eleven remastered analog tracks. Comes in a heavy duty cover with an updated, authentic version of the original artwork. 180 gram vinyl.
