Albert Mangelsdorff: Albert Mangelsdorff And His Friends

Read "Albert Mangelsdorff And His Friends" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

After Brunner-Schwer sold the rights to Philips in the early '80s, the label changed hands several times--Polydor picked it up and passed it through a subsidiary, Universal Music Group acquired its holdings, Speakers Corner Records took over on the vinyl side of ...

Kenny Clarke: The Golden 8

Read "The Golden 8" reviewed by Greg Simmons


The first time I dropped a needle on a Music Matters 33 rpm test-pressing of Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland's The Golden 8 I was surprised to hear something quite unusual: a Blue Note record that was clearly not recorded in Hackensack.

Francy Boland - Kenny Clarke - Jimmy Woode: Playing with the Trio

Read "Playing with the Trio" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


È davvero encomiabile l'attività dell'etichetta milanese Ishtar, che affianca alla produzione di artisti contemporanei un pregevole lavoro di riedizione di album da tempo introvabili. Ora, sotto il marchio della sussidiaria Schema Rearward, pubblica un raro disco del trio di Francy Boland con Kenny Clarke e Jimmy Woode che già all'epoca (parliamo del 1967) ebbe scarsa diffusione ...
