OM: It's About Time

Read "It's About Time" reviewed by Ian Patterson


In 1982, after five albums in ten years, Swiss free-jazz quartet OM called it a day—its four members, Christy Doran, Fredy Studer, Urs Leimgruber and Bobby Burri going their separate ways. A supposed one-off reunion in 2007 to open an exhibition on the youth movement of the 1960s and 1970s led to a successful series of ...

John Kelman's Best Releases of 2019

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by John Kelman

OM: Willisau

Read "Willisau" reviewed by Nic Jones


The Swiss improvised music scene is often unfairly overlooked.
