Inexhaustible Editions: The Little Label That Roars

Read "Inexhaustible Editions: The Little Label That Roars" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In the 1980s, American writer John Corbett traveled Europe searching for out-of-print LPs from small labels which he eventually produced reissues titled the Unheard Music Series first for Atavistic Records, then his own Corbett vs. Dempsey label.

Another Timbre’s Duos with Brass

Read "Another Timbre’s Duos with Brass" reviewed by John Eyles

Following on from the label's Piano Series and Guitar Series comes Another Timbre's four-CD series Duos with Brass.

Tuba player Hubsch is joined on Carl Ludwig Hubsch's Primordial Soup by trumpet, reeds, and drums for a program of his own compositions which reveals a singular musical intelligence. As with so many musicians and composers working in the constructively grey area between free jazz and contemporary composition, the success of the music is highly dependent ...


Carl Ludwig Hubsch: Carl Ludwig Hubsch's Primordial Soup

Read "Carl Ludwig Hubsch's Primordial Soup" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Composer and tubist Carl Ludwig Hübsch once released a CD of 119 solo tuba pieces. Actually only 99 could fit on the single disc! Try to imagine the record producer having the conversation with the artist, “Sorry Carl, we are going to have to either edit some of this material that runs nearly two minutes or ...
