Mark Sullivan's Best Jazz & Beyond Albums Of 2022

Read "Mark Sullivan's Best Jazz & Beyond Albums Of 2022" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Another great year for recordings. The pandemic's influence faded, but several of the albums on my list were still created remotely. My picks leaned towards the experimental side: a bit more “beyond" than “jazz." I could have easily listed another ten albums released by ECM Records and Blue Note Records--to name two established labels I have ...

The Muffins: Baker's Dozen

Read "Baker's Dozen" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


The Muffins were a Washington, D.C. area progressive rock band who were active from 1974-81 and then again (with their best-known line-up still intact) from 1993-2015. It is rare for any group to reform after more than a decade apart, and still rarer for them to resume their creative life rather than indulge in nostalgia. But ...

Faun and a Pan Flute: Traffic

Read "Traffic" reviewed by Dave Wayne


jny: Atlanta, the home of OutKast, CeeLo Green, Usher, and really the whole “Dirty South" hip hop thing, is not a place normally associated with bands that play super-complex all-original instrumental art-rock. So, you may have to pinch yourself when you hear Traffic by Atlanta-based prog-rockers Faun and a Pan Flute. And to be totally frank, ...

Happy Family: Minimal Gods

Read "Minimal Gods" reviewed by Claudio Bonomi


Da catalogare sotto la voce rock/avant prog. Lo dice e consiglia la stessa Cuneiform, l'etichetta americana di Washington D.C. capitanata da Steve Feigenbaum , che nel 1995 li scoprì e li portó al debutto discografico. Stiamo parlando degli Happy Family, band giapponese che vent'anni fa fece quasi gridare al miracolo grazie a una micidiale miscela che ...

Cuneiform Records: Growing Progressive Music for 27 Years

Read "Cuneiform Records: Growing Progressive Music for 27 Years" reviewed by Mark Redlefsen


Twenty seven years is a long time for a niche progressive music label such as Cuneiform Records not just to survive, but to remain inventive and, in the best sense, ambitious. Steve Feigenbaum founded Cuneiform back in 1984, and with his wife, Joyce, runs it from Silver Springs, Maryland. Hosting bands such as Universe Zero, digging ...

The Muffins: Double Negative

Read "Double Negative" reviewed by John Kelman


When the Muffins, with their own take on music influenced by the British Canterbury Scene and Rock In Opposition bands like Henry Cow, reformed after nearly twenty years and released Bandwidth (Cuneiform, '02), expectations were high. But in the truly progressive tradition, they proved you can't go home again, nor should you want to. ...
