Markus Eichenberger & Christoph Gallio: Unison Polyphony

Read "Unison Polyphony" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Unison Polyphony, espressione che dà titolo a questo album, non è solo un poetico ossimoro, bensì sintetizza il programma stesso della musica che vi sviluppano i suoi autori --gli svizzeri Markus Eichenberger e Christoph Gallio.

Day and Taxi, Adam Rudolph, Harish Raghavan and More

Read "Day and Taxi,  Adam Rudolph, Harish Raghavan and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

First out of the mixed bag of audio treats this week (it's Halloween after all!) is a track from Oliver Lake's first recording 43 years ago Ntu: The Point from Which Creation Begins.
