Read "Rag, Saddle and All: Curlew and George Cartwright / Davu Seru" reviewed by Clifford Allen


Saxophonist and composer George Cartwright might not be an oft-repeated name in creative improvised music, but he should garner a weighted whistle whenever he does crop up.

Cosa Brava: Ragged Atlas

Read "Ragged Atlas" reviewed by Mark Corroto


In the last forty years, no one has been about to categorize just what exactly Fred Frith music is.
