Paul Dunmall / Olie Brice: The Laughing Stone

Read "The Laughing Stone" reviewed by John Sharpe


Reedman Paul Dunmall and bassist Olie Brice have collaborated on many occasions, with Palindromes (West Hill Records, 2020) and John Coltrane 50th Memorial Concert At Cafe Oto (Confront, 2019) only the most recent offerings.

A Supreme Love

Read "A Supreme Love" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Read "Silence, Then Birds" reviewed by John Sharpe


Under the moniker Hymn, the British threesome of trumpeter Chris Dowding, violinist Sylvia Hallett and electronicist David Ross present extemporized slices of understated minimalism distinguished by aching melodies emerging from a granular scratchy undertow.
