Rich Halley 5: The Outlier

Read "The Outlier" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The band is the Rich Halley 5, not the Rich Halley 4 + 1. There is an important distinction here. This session gives the impression of a functioning quintet, not just a guest appearance.

Jack Mouse, Scott Robinson, Janice Borla: Three Story Sandbox

Read "Three Story Sandbox" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

In una situazione di prevedibile improvvisazione totale (nessuna dichiarazione in merito), Jack Mouse e Scott Robinson hanno la non trascurabile accortezza, autentico salvavita in condizioni del genere, di limitare la durata dei brani inanellati in quest'ora scarsa di musica (nessun brano raggiunge i sei minuti), affiancati dalla vocalità di Janice Borla per così dire a macchia ...
