Keith Tippett: The Unlonely Raindancer

Read "The Unlonely Raindancer" reviewed by Matt Parker

Some people find that solo piano albums, no matter how highly regarded they may be, struggle to hold their attention for a full listen. This can often be attributed to the relatively small timbral palette apparently available to pianists. However, nothing could be further from the truth regarding the extraordinary performances of Keith Tippett documented in ...

King Crimson: Live in Newcastle, December 8, 1972

Read "Live in Newcastle, December 8, 1972" reviewed by John Kelman

"Never say never," or so the old adage goes. When it comes to music, there are two more that should be added: “farewell tour" and, most certainly as it relates to King Crimson's Live in Newcastle, December 8, 1972, “the complete recordings." This, the 48th in the veteran group's King Crimson Collector's Club series of archival ...

The Yamato Drummers Of Japan
Grand Opera House

The Yamato Drummers Of Japan tour regularly, a less august crew when compared to the old guard Kodō clan, more attuned to a modernised visual sense that makes their relationship with the taiko form less hardcore. Not that their ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit.

Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

1. Charles Mingus, Mingus Plays Piano, (Impulse!, 1964).

Questo è uno dei dischi che amo di più, fonte di ascolto ma, ancora oggi, di studio. Ci sono soluzioni armoniche davvero moderne, ancora oggi, brani come «Myself When I'm Real» potrebbero essere stati scritti oggi... con la differenza che la passione di Mingus è ...

Part 1 | Part 2

The passion and conviction of Osborne's playing was so intense that it almost always came across undiminished on recordings, whether they originated in a pub, club or concert-hall gig, or in a studio as part of a formal session. Some of his most exciting work was captured in front ...
