  1. Vox
    by psychetropic
    Red Void Red Void
    This is a nice set of downtempo electronic music with "space music" overtones.
  2. Tender Extinction
    by Steve Jansen
    Captured Captured
    I still am at a loss as to how to describe this. At times vaguely classical, part rock, part ambient, often within the same track, this is masterfully done. I don't really think it sounds like his work with Barbieri and Karn, although you can hear echoes of those works here. I hear many echoes here. This is the culmination of years of playing. I also think it his best yet.
  3. June
    by Garreth Broke
    The Last The Last
    This consists of 2 short neo-classic pieces for solo piano. and a more jazz oriented, almost bluesy, piece for piano and trumpet. This is really quite nice. :-)
  4. Feedback Alley
    by Guy Hatton
    Feedback Alley Feedback Alley
    A gift from my friend Slava, this is a nice set of jazz fusion compositions. It's well done, and I thought putting it on my page may lead others to sample Mr. Hatton's wares. I hope I'm correct, as I think it will appeal to quite a few.
  5. Joyride on Judgment Day
    by Mysterians
    Girl with the Multiplex Eyes Girl with the Multiplex Eyes
    Ah, some retro electro here! :-) This is late '70's/early '80's type electronica that drifts between being ambient and sci-fi space music. At times it reminds me a bit of Synergy (Larry Fast).
  6. Steppin' Out
    by Steps Ahead
    Steppish Steppish
    I really must laugh; as in all the years I've been listening to music, I never bought anything by Steps Ahead. I guess It's time. I think of their music as pop jazz; which is meant as a description, not as a put down, BTW. This appears to be a sort of orchestrated "best of", so it's a fitting "first"; no? :-) Edit: It's out, it's really quite nice, and I'm glad I spent a couple of shekels. :-)
  7. The Lodge
    by Lady With
    Fire Fire
    This is a very nice set of cinematic jazz fusion pieces. This sat for some time in my wishlist, as I was waiting for M. Petite to complete the project. While some tracks are still just "rough drafts", and more changes are planned, it's in a reasonably complete state; certainly complete enough to tickle your tympani. :-)
  8. Ruler Rebel
    by Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah
    The Reckoning The Reckoning
    Very well played, these works successfully incorporate elements of hip-hop into a jazz framework. Some superb horn work, I'm also taken by the flautist on track six. As I stated, really well played; and composed.
  9. The Imperfect Sea
    by Penguin Cafe
    Cantorum Cantorum
    Penguin, the next generation. This is mellow instrumental orchestral folk in a cabaret style; except when it's somewhat minimalist, in a classical vein. Except when it' by Arthur Jeffes, it seems the nut has not fallen far from the tree. Café is to Orchestra, as son is to father Simon. As a longtime fan of Orchestra, this is a good thing; a very good thing indeed. :-)
  10. Umbrella EP
    by Penguin Cafe & Cornelius
    Solaris (Cornelius Mix) Solaris (Cornelius Mix)
    pre-order, the one track I can hear is quite-um-Penguinish. :-) Glad to see Roy's on board; now, about that loan...... ;-)
  11. Halo
    by Juana Molina
    Cosoco Cosoco
    ¡Oh, pobre corazón! YES!!! Juana!! On Bandcamp! I had hoped she would show up here. She gave up a TV career as a comedienne to make music. What started as Spanish Folk-rock, over time morphed into a strange and wondrous avant... pop? A sort of deviant pop, I guess. :-)) I've been a fan for 15 years, now; and each album progresses further along an odd eccentric path that somehow just works, even though no sé hablo español. I speak Molina, though. :-)
  12. Vent Pluie et Sable (Wind, Rain and Sand)
    by Frédéric L’Épée
    Kalimba II Kalimba II
    This is a solo work for layered, overdubbed electric guitar. The pieces have a very minimalist bent, in the sense they are built up of overlapping repeated patterns. Some are also rather"ambient" in nature. I first found this on a now defunct website, and downloaded them as RM files years ago. (Remember Real Media?) I'm pleased to see L'Epée here on BC, as I know his work with Philharmonie, also available here; which I have as CD's. He's an intriguing guitarist.
  13. Music for Lovers
    by Frédéric L’Épée
    Angel Rocking (Ange se balançant) Angel Rocking (Ange se balançant)
    More extremely well done work for solo electric guitar and various effects and electronics.He also "prepares" the guitar on this one, as Hauschka prepares his piano, with bits of metal and such. This is very nicely done, IMO. Some of it is reminiscent of Carl Weingarten. It is generally down tempo, and really worth listening to. I hope you will do so.

  14. Separate | Migrate
    by The Kraken Quartet
    Chance The Dog (the song) Chance The Dog (the song)
    With marimba, drum kit, xylophone, and some synths; just how does one describe this? I initially said classically influenced fusion, but there are minimalist and prog rock elements that are evident as well. The Tanguerey told me it was progrockiclassijazzi(con)fusion. :-) It's also VERY well played., well worth your time (and funds). :-) And thanks again to Dr. Beaf for pointing them out to me. :-)
  15. The Kraken Quartet - Audiotree Live
    by The Kraken Quartet
    Chance The Dog (the song) Chance The Dog (the song)
    This is the Audiotree session sans the interview parts. All 4 are percussionists, with 2 being the primary synthesists. Mainly utilizing drumkit, marimba and xylophone as the percussion, theirs is a style I would call classically influenced fusion. Fans of ensemble, et al really need to check this out. They are VERY good. Thanks Beefy! :-)The Audiotree video
  16. Charmed World
    by Marimba Plus
    Certao Certao
    Their 2nd, this has almost the same line-up, with Arkady Shilkloper on 3 tracks (horns). There's an interesting take on a Horace Silver tune. That, and tracks 6 and 7 are my favorite tracks, all really interesting. It ends with a solo marimba piece.I'm quite impressed with this crew, and like this better than their first. This is top shelf stuff. :-))
  17. Marimba Plus
    by Marimba Plus
    Meditation Meditation
    This is superb! Classically influenced jazz, ethnic elements are often incorporated; producing a delightful, and often unique, sound. The interplay between flute and clarinet, the interlocking rhythms often heard between those instruments and the composers marimba; it all adds up to a marvelous set of pieces. The cellist, bassist and drummer are also adept musicians, fear not. :-)I found it in Hoz's wishlist. This, all their music actually, is really VERY good. :-) P.S. Mein Vergnügen Hoz :-)
  18. To the Light (Digital Single)
    by Daria Semikina
    This is a very calming fingerstyle guitar piece. Nicely done miss S. :-)
  19. Ostinato
    by Jane Aubourg
    Music for a mounting crisis Music for a mounting crisis
    This is a VERY nice set of pieces for electric violin and pedals. It is what I've come to think of as alt-classical music. :-) Ms. Aubourg does here for the violin what Zoe Keating has been doing for the cello. That is not a comparison I make lightly, either. A listen is highly recommended. This is another nice find from Julien Moermans' page.
  20. Live at Van Heys Studios
    by Sadler, Archer & Tripp
    Interlude in D Interlude in D
    I think this is best classified as world, with ethnic and New Age(the good kind) overtones. All three artists are very good, and the mix of hang, clarinet and marimba; with tabla and other percussion; is one that works surprisingly well. My only problem with this is that I want more; the juxtaposition of hang, marimba and clarinet is enchanting. I found it on Julien Moermans' rather eclectic page, and hereby extend a heartfelt "Merci"; or should that be "Dank Je"? I guess either will work. :-)
  21. Earth Luminous
    by Erik Wøllo and Byron Metcalf
    Days of Magic Days of Magic
    This is a superb collaboration between two musicians I'm not at all familiar with. Sweeping airy, ambient soundscapes are underpinned by earthy, often tribal, rhythms. Creative fires burn brightly, not watered down by New Age sappiness. It's ELEMENTAL, good people. :-) In all seriousness, though; this is marvelous music; give a listen.
  22. Abeng
    by rich brown
    Window Seat Window Seat
    This is a really good set of modern jazz compositions. The liner notes accurately call it complex music that remains dedicated to the groove. Very accessible, it does not skimp on quality. Excellent compositions coupled to superb playing make this a win for my ears. I dare you to pick just one favorite track! :-) The more I listen, the more I like this. Highly recommended!
  23. have you heard the silence of the
    by Bandgladesh
    tree tree
    World fusion that borders on New Age, this is interesting both in instrumentation and composition. Two Hang players with trumpet, flugelhorn and n'goni (a relative of the kora) are not your usual lineup. Other percussion and a bit of electronics are added here and there, with a guest vocalist on one track. While a piece or two drag a bit in their beginnings, all in all it winds up being rather intriguing, and the juxtaposition of instruments works well.
  24. Danaïdes
    by The Alcohotlicks
    Visual Visual
    This is a well played mix of proggish and fusion-like pieces with elements of blues scattered about. It's not exactly jazz, but it does indeed groove.
  25. Mu
    by Richard Pinhas & Barry Cleveland (feat. Michael Manring & Celso Alberti)
    Forgotten Man Forgotten Man
    Heavy, very heavy, in an almost krautrock fashion. At times it can also be rather tribal. The first track is just Pinhas and Cleveland. I'm not sure I agree with Mr. Cratchley about Manring stealing the show; but then again, I'm not sure I disagree. :-)
  26. Circonflexe
    by Ô-liostére
    1 2 3 2 1 2 3 2
    This is a nice set of pieces built on interlocking rhythmic patterns and borrowing from diverse sources. The guest scat work is riveting, and this, overall, is really well done. Dillon, on whose page I found it, calls it progressive jazz., which I find an interesting way of describing it. I'll have to steal it from him! :-)
  27. LAM
    by Waclaw Zimpel
    LAM 1 (part two) LAM 1 (part two)
    This is very, very good! A set of jazz pieces in a somewhat minimalist vein with rock influences, it's comprised of 3 extended works. The release opens and closes in a rather ethereal and ambient manner; also a good description of LAM2. The rest is delightfully rhythmic, subtly layered; each piece building slowly in intensity. While giving a nod to other works, it is very much its own creature; not quite like anything else I own. This deserves to be listened to.
  28. Saagara
    by Saagara [Wacław Zimpel / Giridhar Udupa / Mysore N. Karthik / Bharghava Halambi / K. Raja]
    Saagara Saagara
    This is Waclaw Zimpel's attempt to write music in the Indian classic Karnatic tradition. Do NOT expect to hear jazz, as this definitely is not jazz, Lines being a possible exception. In his notes on "2", he implies that he's not overly pleased with the result. To my western ears, it sounds rather Indian, but he should know better than me. I find it quite interesting. Zimpel and his collaborators provide some very nice musical moments here, and I think he succeeded more than he realizes. :-)
  29. 2
    by Saagara
    Daydream Daydream
    By track 4 I knew I was buying this, "this" being a merging of Western jazz with Indian tonal scales and rhythms by Waclaw Zimpel. Jazz with strong Indian spice, Waclaw swings (lyrically), the 3 Indian percussionists (no tabla!) groove, and the violinist manages to imitate a sarod. Producer mooryc provides some sonic manipulation, and synth(?). The last track is just overdubbed clarinet and piano, icing on a delicious aural cake. My ears are very happy. :-)
  30. Green Light
    by Evan Ziporyn / Wacław Zimpel / Hubert Zemler / Gyan Riley
    Tam-Zam Tam-Zam
    Both Ziporyn and Zimpel are masterful musicians, and some of the material is quite interesting. Unfortunately for me, half the album is free jazz, which I don't much care for. If you do like free jazz, then go for it.
  31. Imaginary Lines
    by Jonathan Fitoussi
    Aquarius Aquarius
    This is a very nice set of somewhat spacey, slightly retro electronica. The pieces tend towards the ambient in the original Brian Eno sense; they work well as both background or tunes to listen to. Dare I say music to doobie to? :-)
  32. Agartha
    by Oddarrang
    Mass I-III Mass I-III
    This is quite interesting. Not your usual jazz quintet, they give us a release that's part cinematic jazz and part classical; almost a soundtrack to an unknown film at times. There are unexpected touches of electronica, which actually work rather well. I have to thank the good Dr. Beaf for gifting me a release I would have mistakenly passed on. So---THANKS BEAFY! :-)
  33. Citizen Of Glass
    by Agnes Obel
    It's Happening Again It's Happening Again
    Ms. Obel has a lovely voice. Here she provides us with another fine set of pieces in her interesting fusion of classical chamber music and folk. As with her prior release there are a couple of very nice instrumentals as well. This is another release worthy of your attention. I feel she grows with each release.
  34. Aventine
    by Agnes Obel
    Dorian Dorian
    Neo-folk singer/songwriter, this is a set of spare pieces performed in a classical mode. Or is it a set of neo-classic pieces done in a folk mode? 3 tracks are instrumental miniatures, the rest have her vocals. I find it quite interesting. Her vocals are mostly backed by piano and cello. This is another nice find.
  35. Frame of Reference
    by Sean Foran
    Room with a View Room with a View
    This is a set of lyrical jazz pieces presented by a quintet led by the pianist of Trichotomy. It breaks no new ground, as such; but is a very well played set of quite pleasant compositions. My only quibble is some occasional distortion evident at either end of the sound envelope on some tracks. Someone tweaked something a bit too much. A minor complaint.
  36. Still Point
    by Visionary Hours
    Footfalls Echo Footfalls Echo
    So-if I said this is Wyndham Hill-ish, how many would understand? Track 2 reminds me strongly of '80's Will Ackerman, although not the rest of it. Sometimes acoustic, sometimes electronic, usually both; this is basically downtempo and very melodic. So, what is this? Why, it's very, very good and highly recommended.
    Thanks, Hayden. :-)
  37. Legacy of the Witty
    by Trigg & Gusset
    White Condor White Condor
    Moody. Downtempo. Noir. Excellent!!
    Highly recommended!
    Oh yeah- jazz- sort of. :-)
  38. Adagio for the Blue
    by Trigg & Gusset
    Intimate Intimate
    Smokey. Bluesy. Downtempo. Damn Beafy, you tag the feel of this one perfectly. Don't leave your drink unattended or you get slipped a Mickey. Cool jazz, it evokes what came before; but certain touches, certain elements are more modern. Updated noir well worth checking out. Thanks Beaf! :-)
  39. Scramble + Fate
    by Tess Said So
    Be Be
    Tess Said So is a piano and percussion duo that provide a sound that falls into the interstices between neo-classic and jazz. Most, though not all, of this is rather down tempo, almost ambient, with a touch here and there of a minimalist feel. It's only due to the use of a drum kit that it has a jazz vibe at all, at least to my ear (listen to tracks 4, 7, or 10). Quite mellow overall, and very well done, I don't hesitate to recommend this.
  40. I Did That Tomorrow
    by Tess Said So
    Dew Point Dew Point
    Alternative neo-classical(?) is there such a thing?; snippets of this reminded me of Penguin Café, oddly enough, in the way some things were phrased.
  41. Jessica Lauren Four
    by Jessica Lauren Four
    White Mountain White Mountain
    With the exception of 2 tracks, one a honky tonk and one a soulful ballad, this is instrumental jazz. The instrumentation gives most a Latin feel(timbales will do that), although only a couple can truly be called Latin jazz, track 2 for example. Track 8 is a great blues piece. A gift from Dr. Beaf, I saw no one else had this, which is a pity. I hope to rectify that with this recommendation, as it's really quite good.
  42. Ephemeral
    by Biofeedback
    Glassy ouverture Glassy ouverture
    This is a short ,pleasant set of four somewhat downtempo electronic pieces. That Piero Farinato is involved (which is how I came across it) leads me to suspect there's guitar in there somewhere, but I can't really hear it.
    Edit: So I get a note from Piero stating he composed along with Enrico, but didn't play. No wonder I heard no guitar! Still a nice EP. :-)
  43. Play
    by Biofeedback
    Play Play
    This is a nice little set of downtempo pieces. A bit of electronica here and there, some Piero on the guitar everywhere. :-) I think the last track particularly nice.
  44. Honoris Causa
    by Piero Farinato
    The last rebel The last rebel
    This is an old one (1996), but doesn't sound dated (at least to my aging ears).This is a very nice set of jazz fusion pieces, with an occasional blues and/or Latin feel. I wish I knew who the musicians were, this is really quite well played. I don't remember just where I found it, as it was bookmarked some time ago.
    Edit: Piero was kind enough to email me the personnel! Grazie!
  45. Odd Light
    by olivier-babaz
    Snark Attacks Snark Attacks
    Bassist and kalimba player Babaz gives us a very nice set of tunes that I would describe as being world jazz; at least for the most part. They're performed in a trio setting, with guitar and drums. I'd found his earlier work on Mr. De Giorgio's page, and forgotten about him. Mike kindly reminded me. :-)
