A sample of friendly jazzy affinity between real Swing players with the virtues that should have to jam. These rare transatlantic dates issued by HRS & Vogue performs Basie-ite trumpeter Clayton (for whom Stanley Dance coined the term "Mainstream") with solid feelings of Tiny Grimes, Dicky Wells-Trummy Young, Don Byas, George Johnson and young pianist Billy Taylor, or French cats like Alix Combelle & André Persiany in four sessions that can be considered among the final small-group swing events of the classic era.

Oakland area ensemble Jack ‘O The Clock is one part progressive rock, one part folk, and the remainder an amalgam of diverse and hard-to-classify elements. This, their fourth full album, is a rapid follow-up to 2013 phenomenal All My Friends. However, Night Loops is anything but a continuation of that effort. This album features the group’s typical lineup of vocals, hammer dulcimer, violin, bassoon, bass, drums, and various brass, wood, and string instrumentals. Lead writer and vocalist Damon Waitkus provides haunting lyrics - poetic images of mainstream Americana’s cracked fabric. But Night Loops takes the overt intensity down a notch, while maintaining the thoughtful compositions and lyrical content that the group is known for…

The Ambient Visitor (Brin Coleman) is a prolific ambient, shoegaze musician and producer from Manchester, UK. Quietly drifting through the clear night sky. A cool breeze rustles through the trees and the stars shine brightly. One continuous generative ambient drone. The glassy sound you hear on this album is just that, a recording of a Chimay beer glass that produces an amazing clear and prolonged tone when struck.

Finnish record label Lion Music releases their second highly anticipated classic style re-issue of 2005 with Spelar Nilsson by a quartet called De Gladas Kapell. This album was originally recorded in one session back in May of 1978 by some of the finest musicians available in Sweden, and this is the first time it has become available on CD. Coste Apetrea was also featured prominently on Lion’s first re-issue as the 2nd guitarist playing on the excellent JTB album by Finnish guitarist Jukka Tolonen. Although touted by Lion as being “one of the true landmarks of Swedish progressive rock”, the music on Spelar Nilsson actually owes a lot more to jazz than it does to rock…

With ‘Maa’, his debut album for Disco Gecko, LO18 has crafted a mystical musical marriage between the mechanical and natural worlds. Finding inspiration in singular sounds, whether from the environment or an instrument, Lounela combines his love of non-rhythmic ambience and slow, tiny movements with that of groovy rhythms and simple pop hooks. The result is a refreshing collection of tracks, which flow from melancholy to melody and back again, with plenty of unique flourishes along the way.

Duke Ellington was at the height of his popularity during the 1940s; at the same time, he was enjoying a creative peak and fronting one of the finest organizations he'd ever assembled, including trumpeters Cootie Williams, Ray Nance, and later Rex Stewart and Harold "Shorty" Baker, trombonists Lawrence Brown, Tricky Sam Nanton, and Tommy Dorsey, saxophonists Johnny Hodges and Ben Webster, Jimmy Blanton and Oscar Pettiford on bass, and drummers Sonny Greer and Sid Catlett. The material here includes Ellington's famous versions of "Take the 'A' Train," "Caravan," "The 'C' Jam Blues," "Mood Indigo," and "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)."

Northern California’s Jack O’ The Clock is back once more for the follow-on release to 2016’s Repetitions of the Old City - I. Not unlike that effort (as well as much of the group’s previous works), this album combines lyrically-driven melancholy folk with tightly-orchestrated prog rock and touches of a handful of other styles.
The breadth of their approach is illustrated by the instrumentation, with Damon Waitkus on lead vocals, guitars, hammer dulcimers, and various other stringed instruments, as well as keyboards, flute, and percussion. Emily Packard plays violin and viola while Kate McLoughlin is on bassoon and vocals…

H.Takahashi, Tokyo based Architect and sound designer. ‘Low Power’ draws strands of Minimalism from the Japanese Minimalist works from the likes of Hiroshi Yoshimura and Satoshi Ashikawa, to masters such as Erik Satie and John Cage, and Ambient leaders Brian Eno and Roedelius. His sound sometimes seems to be drizzling like rain, but still the feeling of refreshing sounds sinks pleasantly inside the body like a shower bathed after running 100 meters with full power. A genuine melody gives a feeling that drifts in the water. The philosophy of simple timbre composition and placement makes feel the composition of the Japanese garden and the minimalism of Sen no Rikyu.

Jack Purvis was a strange figure in jazz history. A talented trumpeter who could also play effective trombone starting in the late '20s, Purvis was also a petty thief, a smuggler, a cook, an airplane pilot, and a charming con man. He was in one legendary escapade after another, which finally resulted in a jail sentence, and he never seemed to regret any of his adventures or make any attempt at reform. His remarkable and somewhat unbelievable tale is outlined in detail in Michael Brooks' lengthy and definitive liner notes to this superb three-CD set. Purvis made all of his recordings during 1928-1931 (except for a lone session by pianist Frank Froeba in 1935), leading eight selections of his own and otherwise mostly adding some hot jazz trumpet to dance band dates…

Deux cents nuits à l'heure (Two Hundred Nights Per Hour), is a one-off collaborative album by Québec singer-songwriters Serge Fiori and Richard Séguin, released in 1978.

With the death of Chick Webb in 1939, his big band was temporarily without a leader. Since Ella Fitzgerald had become the orchestra's most popular attraction, she was put at its head even though she had very little to do with the music. The Webb management, musical director Teddy McRae and trumpeter Taft Jordan actually ran the show, but Fitzgerald was still virtually the only female singer (other than Ina Ray Hutton) to be the leader of her own big band during the era. The experiment would last for two years, until Fitzgerald started her own remarkably successful solo career in 1941. While most of the band's recordings after Webb's death featured Fitzgerald's vocals, the four radio broadcasts that comprise this two-CD set have the orchestra taking instrumentals on over one-third of the material…

On the softer side of krautrock, Bröselmaschine are sometimes considered "krautfolk" a more unique subgenre. Lots of flute, acoustic and sometimes electric guitar, sitar, tabla and other hand drums. After six adventurous and successful years the original and first line-up disbanded in 1974. Some members went to India whilst others moved to the countryside (all members came originally from Duisburg). That was when the founders Peter Bursch and Willi Kissmer reformed Bröselmaschine. Klaus Dapper, a sax player and flutist from the jazz scene, joined as a new member. The musicians already knew each other from diverse sessions and common gigs…
