Robin & The Woods: Moonfall

Read "Moonfall" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Il cosiddetto rock progressivo nato e sviluppatosi negli anni '70 principalmente come fenomeno musicale che abbracciava un vasto numero di sottogeneri piuttosto che un movimento unitario è ancora più vivo che mai, come dimostrano non solo i numerosi progetti per ridefinirlo curati da produttori che al prog hanno dedicato tutto se stessi (come Steven Feigenbaum di ...

Art Zoyd: Art Zoyd - 44 1⁄2 At A Glance: Selections from the Art Zoyd Box Set

Read "Art Zoyd - 44 1⁄2 At A Glance: Selections from the Art Zoyd Box Set" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Because France's Art Zoyd was a member of the Rock In Opposition (RIO) movement--a loose confederation of bands making left of center music and subverting the conventions of the music business--they are often characterized as a progressive rock band. But after a brief early period with a standard rock configuration, their instrumentation and musical style came ...

John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by John Kelman


For those who may have noticed, there have been no best of lists coming from yours truly since 2014; sadly, the chronic health problem that has reduced my previous writing pace to a crawl continues without much respite. My best of the year lists have always been predicated upon having reviewed the releases chosen, and with ...

Faun and a Pan Flute: Traffic

Read "Traffic" reviewed by Dave Wayne


jny: Atlanta, the home of OutKast, CeeLo Green, Usher, and really the whole “Dirty South" hip hop thing, is not a place normally associated with bands that play super-complex all-original instrumental art-rock. So, you may have to pinch yourself when you hear Traffic by Atlanta-based prog-rockers Faun and a Pan Flute. And to be totally frank, ...

A Windy Season: Tidal (Amphidromic Cotidal)

Read "A Windy Season: Tidal (Amphidromic Cotidal)" reviewed by Dave Wayne


This album fooled me, and I am not afraid to admit it. A subset of the EA Orchestra, whose recent recording (Likiedos, Amirani Records, 2011) focused on the compositional aspects of avant-garde large ensemble music, A Windy Season is a wind quartet that--at first blush-seems to traverse similar terrain on Tidal. A quick perusal of the ...

Gato Libre: Forever

Read "Forever" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Gato Libre is the most unexpected manifestation of the multifaceted collaboration between trumpeter Natsuki Tamura and pianist Satoko Fujii. This understated quartet of bass, acoustic guitar, trumpet and accordion creates a sound world that is totally unique: serene, atmospheric, and seemingly contrary to the duo's other collaborative musical ventures. Gato Libre's music isn't a fusion or ...
