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 ...

Morton Feldman: Piano and String Quartet

Read "Piano and String Quartet" reviewed by John Eyles


It seems almost inevitable that the five-star, five-disc box set Morton Feldman Piano (Another Timbre, 2019), by Apartment House pianist Philip Thomas, should overshadow Feldman releases on Another Timbre and other labels, not least because of its six-hour duration and Thomas' exquisite performances. However, as the Another Timbre catalogue reveals, there is far more to Feldman ...

Philip Thomas: Morton Feldman Piano

Read "Morton Feldman Piano" reviewed by John Eyles


Everything about this six-hour, five-disc box-set of Morton Feldman piano music radiates the care, attention-to-detail and, yes, love that have been invested in producing it. The artwork, packaging, documentation and information are all second to none, as is the crystal-clear recording quality. Any cynic questioning the need for another exquisitely-produced box-set should note that, among its ...

John Butcher

Read "John Butcher" reviewed by John Eyles


In the Building a Jazz Library article on Evan Parker, it says that seasoned Parker followers would describe him as the finest improvising saxophonist of his generation.
