In the jazz world, there are artists who are consistent but predictable and artists who are unpredictable but inconsistent. John Scofield, meanwhile, is an impressive example of a jazzman who is both unpredictable and consistent. You never know what the risk-taking guitarist will do from one album to the next, but he rarely provides an album that is flat-out disappointing. Überjam is a major departure from 2000's Works for Me, the Verve date that preceded it. While Works for Me is essentially a straight-ahead post-bop outing and employs acoustic-oriented players, like pianist Brad Mehldau and bassist Christian McBride, Überjam is pure, unadulterated fusion…

This stunning 2 CD set features the 1975 Nucleus album Alleycat and the 1976 compilation Direct Hits. Alleycat sees the British fusion ensemble getting downright funky and rocking, keeping pace quite well with other popular groups of the time such as Miles Davis, Return to Forever, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, and the Tony Williams Lifetime. Ian Carr (trumpet/flugelhorn/synthesizer) and his band included on this album Bob Bertles on sax & flute, Ken Shaw on guitar, Geoff Castle on keyboards & Moog, Roger Sutton on bass, and Roger Sellers on drums-together they make a formidable line-up that delivers on all levels…

This two-fer compiles Polly Bergen's All Alone by the Telephone and Four Seasons of Love. It's an economical and convenient way for those who have a limited knowledge of Bergen's music to increase their knowledge and discover what lies beyond the singer's best-known recordings.
All Alone by the Telephone (1959) pairs Polly Bergen with arranger Luther Henderson to create a deeply melancholy song cycle that explores romantic estrangement and isolation from a refreshingly adult perspective…

Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Musea Records (FGBG 4882)

The Healing Road is the instrumental project led by German keyboardist HansPeter Hess (The Bearded's Project), whose name was inspired by the book by Neil Peart (Rush) "Ghost Rider - Travels On The Healing Road".
"Backdrop" consists in two long pieces of music. To create something different from the previous albums, HansPeter Hess set some guidelines: less Piano sounds, less synthesizers, Moog or Hammond sounds… The album should have an acoustic, rural, pastoral atmosphere and contain as much acoustic instruments as he can get and play. Guitar player Thommy Frank features here, as well as Roland Enders, the latter performing the closing track, being a folk-song written and sung by him.

Ukab Maerd is a project formed by two former members of the progressive rock band Djam Karet, Chuck Oken, Jr. and Gayle Ellett. Joining the duo is French guitarist Richard Pinhas (Heldon) who adds guitar loops on three of the four tracks.
Dreamy and surreal, this CD effortlessly combines the traditional sounds of European Electronic music of the 1970’s, with today’s more modern aesthetics. Much of this music was recorded live in Southern California, at two different performances by Oken and Ellett. Later, Richard Pinhas’ processed guitar loops were blended into the mix, with Oken adding in a few additional new tones as well, creating the final release…

Genre: Psychedelic/Space Rock, Post-Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Cardinal Fuzz

Cardinal Fuzz present "Warheads", a full-length collaboration between writer/artist Adam Stone and Manchester instrumentalists Dead Sea Apes. Classic British pessimism and speculative dystopian fiction entwine with morbid social commentary and a long piss-streak of bleak humour. This is a claustrophobic and self-contained world where paranoid bunker mentality goes for a Pot Noodle with a faded society always teetering on the brink of collapse, ranting street-punk drops bad acid, and Space Station fuses with Bus Station…

The last official album by the Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet is the only one that featured the great Sonny Rollins on tenor. With pianist Richie Powell and bassist George Morrow completing the group, this date is a hard bop classic. Brownie and Rollins fit together perfectly on memorable versions of "What Is This Thing Called Love," "I'll Remember April," and a witty arrangement of "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing."

At the same time, it provides the impressive evidence, that Roland Voss is rightly considered as one of the most famous composers and producers in the scene.

DJs like Gilles Petersen have been hip to the seven-piece wonder band Demon Fuzz for years, and as of the 21st century - now that everybody's put away their James Brown records for sampling - other club jocks are getting into the act of sampling this incredibly rare LP. Afreaka! was the only release by Demon Fuzz. Released in 1970, Afreaka! is a wild mash of Afro-Latin funk, breakbeats, tripped-out soul, jazz fusion, and psychedelic journeying. These seven black musicians took on everything that was happening, and were musicians enough to make it work for them. Most tracks run in the eight- and nine-minute range and get down with tough drums at the core, with rhythmic shifts happening on a grooved dime…
