The second of three albums by Wayne Horvitz's short-lived band, Bring Yr Camera continued with the idea of an instrumental rock-oriented group playing (mostly) Horvitz's quirky jazz and gospel-inflected compositions. Dave Tronzo replaced Bill Frisell in one of the two guitar seats, adding a country blues flavor to several of the pieces, including the relaxed "Philip." Horvitz's sing-songy melodies can have a tendency to slide into an easy slickness, making the presence of Elliott Sharp, who provides healthy doses of gritty noise, essential to the success of the project.

Few jazz vocalists set out to deconstruct a standard as thoroughly as Tierney Sutton does. Her past albums have hovered around a theme but none as devotedly as On the Other Side, which takes the simple concept of happiness and turns it on its ear. Sutton could have approached classics like "Happy Talk," "Make Someone Happy," "Happy Days Are Here Again," and "Get Happy" as most singers would, finding their sweet spots and putting on a big smile as she sang them with ebullience. But these are some of the saddest renditions of happy tunes you'll ever hear, and Sutton's reinventions are such a success because she is so believably bummed.

The first in a series of New York-based PAK bands was formed in 2000 by guitarists Ron Anderson and Will Redmond, bassist Jesse Krakow, and drummer Race Age. PAK's first three albums, each of which involved multiple changes in personnel, generated comparisons with Frank Zappa, Gentle Giant, King Crimson, and Captain Beefheart. Secret Curve was released in early 2011 on John Zorn's Tzadik label. Anderson is featured here as composer and bass guitarist leading seven edgy improvisers including double-fisted pianist Anthony Coleman, prepared pianist Eve Risser, trumpeter Tim Byrnes, and multi-reed instrumentalist Stefan Zeniuk.

Matthew Shipp, za oceanem postać legendarna, niezwykle ceniony pianista i kompozytor, w Europie może nieco mnie znany, pozostaje jednak amerykańskim muzykiem z mocnej pierwszej ligi. Nie może być inaczej, pobierał przecież nauki u samego Dennisa Sandole, słynnego muzycznego edukatora, u którego lekcje pobierał sam John Coltrane, a także Pat Martino (Dennis Sandole grał na gitarze) i Michael Brecker. Jego muzyczna kariera wystartowała dość późno. Pierwszy album nagrał w wieku 28 lat i do dziś stara się chyba tych kilka lat nadrobić. Od początku 2017 roku ukazało się już 5 albumów z jego udziałem, a nagrany w czerwcu 2016 roku w Nowym Jorku krążek „Not Bound” jest najnowszą produkcją, wydaną przez polską wytwórnię ForTune Productions.

Boniface Ferdinand Leonard "Buddy" DeFranco (February 17, 1923 – December 24, 2014) was an American jazz clarinet player. One of few clarinetists playing bebop, DeFranco was described by critic Scott Yannow as the leading American jazz musician on his instrument from the 1940s until Eddie Daniels came to prominence in the 1980s. In addition to his own work as a bandleader, DeFranco led the Glenn Miller Orchestra for almost a decade in the 1960s and '70s.

Keyboardist Wayne Horvitz first made a name for himself in New York's early '80s downtown avant-garde scene, most notably as a member of John Zorn's genre-bending experimental supergroup Naked City. Horvitz has since relocated to Seattle to pursue a variety of projects, including work with his band President. True to his highly individual aesthetic, MIRACLE MILE features a heady, instrumental cross-pollination of jazz, ambient, groove, and modern chamber music. Horvitz's use of textural space and rhythmically complex interplay often recalls Phillip Glass, Steve Reich and the work of electronica artists such as Aphex Twin.

The music of Keefe Jackson's all-reed group Likely So is both a new direction and a continuation of his abiding mission: combining composition and improvisation with an emphasis on the interaction of the individual musicians. On A Round Goal, this leads to an exploration of sound-areas including the textural, the melodic, and the instinctual. Mars Williams, Wac[Pi]aw Zimpel, Jackson, Marc Stucki, Dave Rempis, Peter A. Schmid, and Thomas K.J. Mejer play the entire range of saxophones (from sopranino to contrabass) and clarinets. This album is a live set recorded at the Jazzwerkstatt Festival in Berne, Switzerland.

This is a classic Cecil Taylor solo concert, performed at the 1974 Montreux Jazz Festival. Taylor plays his five-movement work "Silent Tongues," along with a couple of brief encores. To simplify in explaining what he was doing at this point of time, it can be said that Taylor essentially plays the piano like a drum set, creating percussive and thunderous sounds that are otherworldly and full of an impressive amount of energy and atonal ideas. Many listeners will find these performances to be quite difficult but it is worth the struggle to open up one's perceptions as to what music can be.

Darren Williams is a Canadian saxophonist/bassoonist who pushes the limits of extended instrumental technique into regions that are lyrical, terrifying, uncanny, and “more fun than spiked punch live” (Georgia Straight). Called “a raw, vocal explorer,” (Stuart Broomer) Darren has performed with Eugene Chadbourne, Chad van Gaalen, Myk Freedman, Mats Gustafsson, Han Bennink, and many others.
