Trevor Watts' Original Drum Orchestra: The Art Is In The Rhythm Volume 2

Read "The Art Is In The Rhythm Volume 2" reviewed by Chris May

Rhythm And Blues Records: Small But Perfectly Formed

Read "Rhythm And Blues Records: Small But Perfectly Formed" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Back in 2007, music fan Nick Duckett walked into a record shop hoping to buy a comprehensive history of rhythm and blues on CD. To his surprise, the owner told him no such set existed at the time. Having a bit of time on his hands, Duckett thought to himself, “Well, there bloody ought to be?" ...

Paul Rutherford: In Backward Times

Read "In Backward Times" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello


Si parla sempre troppo poco di Paul Rutherford, uno dei maestri assoluti dell'improvvisazione europea, trombonista avventuroso, scomparso nel 2007 a soli 67 anni.

Originally studio-recorded in February 1968 and issued as an Island Records LP later that year, it was remastered and re-released on CD by Chronoscope in 1993.

Emanem Tidies Up

Read "Emanem Tidies Up" reviewed by John Eyles


As well as releasing contemporary recordings of improv, Martin Davidson's Emanem label has played a vital role in documenting the history of the music by releasing, re-releasing or re-curating recordings that are decades old.

Julie Tippetts: Didn't You Used To Be Julie Driscoll?

Read "Julie Tippetts: Didn't You Used To Be Julie Driscoll?" reviewed by Duncan Heining


The respect in which Julie Tippetts is held by her fellow musicians and fans is truly heartening--and truly deserved. Back in the late sixties, then Julie Driscoll, she gave up a very different career trajectory in music, one that had begun with Steampacket and continued with Brian Auger & The Trinity, to follow a journey characterised ...
