Ross Lambert: Magnit-Iz-Dat

Read "Magnit-Iz-Dat" reviewed by John Eyles

In the mid-1980s, guitarist Ross Lambert was first exposed to and immediately became committed to improvisatory music, in Sheffield via Derek Bailey.

In November 1999 he was one of the earliest participants in the weekly Friday-evening improv ...

Cartoon: Change Of Meaning

Read "Change Of Meaning" reviewed by Roger Farbey

The Confront Recording's Collectors Series is distinguished by the packaging of its CDs which arrive in a DVD sized metal box. Rather than any cover art, there are instead simple stickers affixed to the front and rear denoting the artist, title and track names. The CD itself quaintly replicates the grooves and track markers of a ...

Derek Bailey / Han Bennink / Evan Parker: Topographie Parisienne

Read "Topographie Parisienne" reviewed by Mark Corroto

This analogy between free improvisation and human nature seems appropriate. Some people, seeing a burning building, will flee for their lives, while others run straight into the building. Mention the names of any member of this trio—Derek Bailey, Han Bennink or Evan Parker—to listeners and they either give a big hoorah or make a break for ...

Eric Hofbauer's Five Agents: Book Of Water

Read "Book Of Water" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

This CD marks the beginning of an ambitious project for guitarist Eric Hofbauer, five connected recordings based on the Chinese philosophical construct of the Five Agents, wood, fire, earth, metal and water.

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.

This, the 48th in the veteran group's King Crimson Collector's Club series of archival ...

Euphorium_freakestra: Grande Casino

Read "Grande Casino" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It may be fitting that the very first translation of James Joyce's Ulysses was from English into German. What, you ask, does this have to do with the three- disc release Grande Casino by Euphorium_freakestra? It's not a suggestion to read (or attempt to read) Ulysses, a book so dense in its 730 pages that it ...
