    2 listening tracks quite show the genre orientation of this French album: modern & free jazz, prog-rock, spoken word, classical & experimental music, performed perfectly. But to say this way is to say nothing.
    This is a philosophical adult fairy-tale about a man who has escaped from the imperfection of this world into his fantasy - a space journey among fancied planets. Even if you don't know French, you are guaranteed the huge ocean of thoughts and emotions.
    Fantastic recording!

    The Saint The Saint
    This is an absolutely superb live performance of the jazz quartet of young Polish musicians leaded by American drummer B.Previte. I find this as one of the best releases of the label ForTune in this year.
    Bright jazz-rock with notes of fusion, surf-rock (that remains me to some Tzadik releases), free jazz. It grabs the intention from the very beginning & keeps it to the end, the sound is perfectly well-done & musical ideas are wonderfully various.
    Many thanks to Chris Dinsmore for this gift ))

    I've already lost my hope to see this amazing album of the chamber ensemble "Bonjour" leaded by contrabassist Florent Ghys officially released. It was made 3 years ago. And what was my surprise!
    I find it as one of his best works, made in the flavor of classical modern minimalism with the influence of rock and experimental avant-garde music, that actually is very suitable to the label Cantaloupe Music )

    Oh yeaaaah! I hoped, this concert would appeared finally here )))
    The absolutely outstanding Belgian experimental jazz-rock group, the great live recording, the first track is unbelievably gorgeous! ))) Highly recommended )))))

    p.s. forgot to add, that this is a tribute to Frank Zappa, BTW ))

    Luna Televisio (O4) Luna Televisio (O4)
    I like these Danish guys, their music is amazing and great. Now they made something epical and it's really difficult for me to describe it. Influenced by folk, avant-prog and classical music, this is just a new gorgeous album of modern eclecticism that was made not to talk about it but to listen to it )) Very dense stuff with the huge amount of unconventional and bright musical solutions. ))
  26. Niechęć
    by Niechęć
    00:00/00:00
    Atak Atak
    As they say this is the 3rd long-awaited full album by Polish jazz group "Niechęć", because the idea of the 2nd album was thrown in trash ))
    Their unique stylish ability to combine dark cinematic music, prog-rock, post-rock, nu jazz, free jazz, lyrics of piano & features in the style of "Kandinsky Effect" is amazing.
    Their 1st album was named as "a punch that's hard to duck from". This release seems to be more mature and hits the target even better ))
    Let's see what critics will say.))
  27. Misc

    La fin La fin
    The Canadian jazz trio led by pianist J.Beaulieu changed the name of the band, became unrecognizable and released their new album ))
    They've formed an excellent ensemble, where each instrument has its own unique role, showing different techniques, capabilities and own personality. Strong expressive melodies, great jazz arrangements, creative percussion, impressive lyrical lines of double-bass, nice improvisations, the variety of rhythms. It's easy to listen to this album several times in a row.))

    by ORCHESTER 33 1/3
    00:00/00:00
    A1 - 33 1/3 A1 - 33 1/3
    The idea of Orchester 33 1/3 led by Austrian musicians C.Kurzmann-C.Fennesz was to combine electro-acoustic improvisation with the large ensemble jazz. This is a shining example of how this idea could be made elegantly.
    Actually they mix almost everything: experimental electronics, avant-garde, free jazz, funk, jungle, glitch, African rhythms, rock. Dedicated to M.Mantler, the album also has 3 versions of his "Preview".
    Although the recording was made 20 years ago it sounds modern & fascinating.
  29. Sheer Tyranny Of Will
    by Peripheral Vision
    00:00/00:00
    Backbone Backbone
    As critics say this is determined as a fusion approach of "Canterbury-style" of jazz-rock with contemporary elements. Let's believe them.
    Every track has a gift for listeners: an unexpected appearance of well-done culmination, a change of mood or music style, a beautiful harmony, the great guitar solo (in P.Metheny style or rock oriented), the gorgeous sound of sax or electronics, suddenly appeared out of nowhere and disappears into nowhere.
    They are nominated for JUNO 2016. I wish them to win))
  30. The Nutcracker and the Mouse King
    by The People's Liberation Big Band of Greater Kansas City
    00:00/00:00
    Waltz of the Snowflakes Waltz of the Snowflakes
    I never thought that someone could force me to listen to "The Nutcracker". Russians know it by heart from childhood, it sounds everywhere, not only during ballet shows ))
    This is the incredible interpretation of this music by the jazz big-band led by pianist B.Cox. They play everything: from classical swing to free jazz, but a variety of styles is not so shocking than the very choice of using them & unexpected transitions between, made with great humor.
    I wonder what Tchaikovsky would say )))

    This is a soundtrack for one of the Brazilian series of short movies, something like a musical interviews with musicians.

  34. Palimpsest
    by Three Cane Whale
    00:00/00:00
    Brute Angels Brute Angels
    Once in a while I scan bandcamp in looking for my favorite musicians & voila!
    Their 1st album reminded me of Penguin Cafe Orchestra, but mostly they stand in a row with such folk groups as British Spiro (A.Vann is its member). But guitar, mandolin, harmonium, dulcitone, lyre, glockenspiel, chimes, harp, bouzouki, zither, bowed psaltery + different types of horns played by P.Judge (yeah, from "Get the Blessing") make their music not only folky melancholic fairy-tale like but also fresh & unique!
  35. Beaux-arts
    by Sylvain Rifflet
    00:00/00:00
    Formes circulaires, soleil n°2 Formes circulaires, soleil n°2
    French musicians know how to use strings in jazz, there are a lot of examples of this phenomenon like F.Rabbath, L'Orchestre De Contrebasses & their members separately, Trio Zéphyr, V.Courtois.
    This is another example of this miracle: jazz trio merged with string 4et. It's difficult to describe this amazing unusual work in few words, but this is smth. like a big palette of musical styles where modern jazz, jazz-rock, R.I.O, classical, avant-garde & even french-style light music live together.))
  36. In memory of a musician
    by Sergey Akhunov
    00:00/00:00
    SOTTO VOCE SOTTO VOCE
    Despite the fact that this music is dated 2014, SOTTO VOCE is the latest composition of S. Akhunov, recorded just 3 weeks ago!
    This is an absolutely lovely piece with dramatic strings, lyrical clear piano and surprising using of percussion ))
    The new album will be released later this year. I'm counting the days ))))
  37. HON
    by Huw V Williams; HON
    00:00/00:00
    Skardu's Missing Skardu's Missing
    The wide range of musical styles represented here is amazing: strongly beautiful lyrical melodic lines, folk, energetic funk and jazz-rock are combined with free jazz and absolutely exciting improv. Accordion, prepared piano and kalimba (at least it sounds like this) add some special flair ))
    The very impressive debut album of young British musicians led by bassist and composer Huw V. Williams makes a really good start ))
  38. Wszystko co stałe rozpływa się w powietrzu // All that is solid melts into air
    by Kurws
    00:00/00:00
    Weltgeist Weltgeist
    This is wild! The mix of experimental instrumental punk, avant-garde, free jazz and improv from Poland is wonderfully aggressive )) Critics differ in their opinions and can't decide, whether this album is brilliant and even better than their previous release or it is an encroachment on the sacred ))
    I find it creative, sarcastic and powerful )) At least it could help in the constant fight against low blood pressure and sleepy Monday's mornings ))
  39. Cruel Sister
    by Julia Wolfe
    00:00/00:00
    Cruel Sister, part 1 Cruel Sister, part 1
    Perhaps, the Commission of Pulitzer Prize wouldn't agree with me, but I find this recording for strings by J.Wolfe, the Queen of Minimalism, the best one in her discography. Extremely tragic music, based on English ballad, makes a strong deep impression. My friend, an old wolf in music, was almost shocked with it for a couple of weeks!
    The 2nd dramatic composition about modernity of our society is also made & performed brilliantly so I couldn't get it out of my head for a long time. Great music!

    LAST DREAMER LAST DREAMER
    For the 3rd time in a row this French duo delights me!
    At first it was last year when I heard them in modern jazz Anne Quillier 6tet (their "Chanson Épique pour les superhéros injustement méconnus" still makes my heart skiping a beat), then I was astounded by their avant-garde prog-jazz trio "Blast", here they stayed alone - only piano, Rhodes and clarinets.
    Ok, they persuaded me - they are fantastic musicians and Anne Quillier is "Woman of the Year" according to my personal music "charts" ))
  41. Stainless Staining
    by Lisa Moore & Donnacha Dennehy
    00:00/00:00
    Stainless Staining Stainless Staining
    This is the absolutely gorgeous collaboration of Irish composer D.Dennehy and L.Moore, the founding pianist for "Bang on a Can", and one of the most exciting recordings of modern classical piano minimalism, that I ever heard. The experiments with micro-tonal textures, rhythmic pulsations, general melodic expressive lines and the infinity of sound hypnotize me for several years and I still find it extremely attractive, despite the fact that I know this music almost by heart ))
  42. Libèrrim
    by ARNAU OBIOLS
    00:00/00:00
    Matinada Matinada
    This is a project of the Spanish jazz quintet that consists of an unusual set of instruments: trumpet, bass clarinet, tuba, cello & drums. The idea here is to go out of the routine borders to the freedom.
    The structured modern jazz compositions are easily transformed to free-jazz, that is changed to improv or almost to chamber avant-garde music. Being a big fan of creativity, I find that their musical ways of self-expression are impressive and their experiment is very fascinating ))
  43. Cosmic Friction
    by Purusha
    00:00/00:00
    Blues in G Blues in G
    This is a debut album by Polish free-jazz trio, which musicians are well-known as the members of such great projects as W.Zimpel's "Hera" & "To Tu Orchestra", R.Rogiński's "Cukunft" & others.
    I was surprised, that this recording sounds like jazz of 1960s but I found this as a very charming feature!
    The music here is quite atmospheric with soft, deep, careful, unique sound of sax, creative rhythm section and the ideal performing. It strongly catches attention. ))
  44. Audio One: What Thomas Bernhard Saw
    by Ken Vandermark
    00:00/00:00
    Doble Negacion (for Michael Heizer) Doble Negacion (for Michael Heizer)
    "Audio One" is the excellent K.Vandermark's new project for free-jazz large ensemble. This is already its 3rd recording. I suspect, it's not necessary to say that all these albums sound powerful, amazing and extremely creative, all the members are musicians of high-class level and this shouldn't surprise that they make the outstanding music. Vibraphone adds some unusual flavour that reminds me to ECM releases of 1970s, while drums sometimes almost cross the boundaries of modern jazz-rock. Great!
