Lucio Capece, Katie Porter: Phase to Phase

Read "Phase to Phase" reviewed by John Eyles

It seems highly likely that the Covid lockdown period will be remembered for the many recordings created because of it, made by musicians collaborating from afar, each confined but able to communicate and swap music using the internet. A range of such recordings has already been released, with a steady trickle still emerging. One such is ...

Noisy Women Return at Cafe Oto, London

Read "Noisy Women Return at Cafe Oto, London" reviewed by John Eyles

Noisy Women Return Cafe Oto London July 17, 2022 The title given to this Cafe Oto concert--Noisy Women Return--probably prompted the same response from many of those who attended: Return? They've never been away! However, the key to understanding that title probably lay two days before; Friday July 15th had seen ...

New Reinier van Houdt on Elsewhere

Read "New  Reinier van Houdt on Elsewhere" reviewed by John Eyles

When is a double album not a double album? That question is raised by the latest pair of Elsewhere releases from the Rotterdam-based composer and pianist Reinier van Houdt. The two come in separate sleeves, have different, unconnected titles, different cover art and were recorded months apart, although they both feature van Houdt alone. The two ...

Quentin Tolimieri: Monochromes

Read "Monochromes" reviewed by John Eyles

Ever since its first release, Blurred Music, in July 2018, the Elsewhere label has never been reluctant to release multi-disc albums when the music has merited them. Of the label's twenty-one albums to date, three have been double albums, and two triple albums--that first release and this one, Monochromes. Another characteristic of Elsewhere releases has been ...

Kjetil Mulelid Trio: Who Do You Love The Most?

Read "Who Do You Love The Most?" reviewed by John Eyles

In an act which might have raised a few eyebrows, Rune Grammofon released Who Do You Love the Most? by the Kjetil Mulelid Trio on the very same day as In the Mountains by the Espen Eriksen Trio featuring Andy Sheppard. Surely these two piano trios on the same label must have been competing for the ...

Terry Riley: Keyboard Studies

Read "Keyboard Studies" reviewed by John Eyles

For some devotees of Terry Riley and John Tilbury the initial reaction to this album may be one of concern for the well-being of the two protagonists, Riley the composer and Tilbury the keyboardist, friends since the late '60s. After all, the sum of their ages exceeds one-hundred-and-seventy-something, and the music here is full-on throughout the ...

Two new composers on Another Timbre

Read "Two new composers on Another Timbre" reviewed by John Eyles

As previously noted, Another Timbre's releases cover a broad spectrum, from world-renowned composers and players, through those who are upwardly mobile, to those making their debut on the label. In addition, although the label is firmly established in Sheffield, England, it continues to cast its net far and wide in search of interesting, innovative and exploratory ...
