Read "The Outlier" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The Outlier! by Paul G. Smyth and John Wiese is an ambient recording. No, it's a free improvisation set, or could it be industrial sound or noise? Yes, and yes again. Recorded before an audience in The National Concert Hall in Dublin, Ireland, this duo brings together pianist and Weekertoft Records label chief Smyth with the ...

Cath Roberts & Olie Brice: Conduits

Read "Conduits" reviewed by John Sharpe

But, while the vibe is conversational, this being an instrumental exchange, it is ...

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases of 2021" reviewed by John Sharpe

Rachel Musson: Dreamsing

Read "Dreamsing" reviewed by John Sharpe


If the solo album is a rite of passage for a woodwind player, then adventurous British saxophonist Rachel Musson passes with flying colors. Musson has found a mentor in 577 Records label boss Federico Ughi, a collaborator during his sojourn in London in the early 2000s. Consequently, the imprint has issued a stream of strong releases ...

Alexander Hawkins Feat. Evan Parker + Riot Ensemble: Togetherness Music (For Sixteen Musicians)

Read "Togetherness Music (For Sixteen Musicians)" reviewed by Mark Corroto


It is obvious from the outset that this is a significant recording. Evan Parker launches into his trademark soprano saxophone circular breathing, setting the stage for things to come. An exemplar of all things free improvisation, his virtuosity never fails to amaze. Although Parker is the marquee soloist here, the composer and organizer of this session, ...
