Will keep repping this because it is one of his best pieces.
More Basic Channel techno domination.
|5||Michael Pisaro and Toshiya Tsunoda|
Reception seems to be mixed amongst the miniature avant-garde circle of Sputnik,
but I really enjoyed this. It would have placed high-ish on my 2012 list.
Samba Esquema Novo
Listened to a bunch of MPB/Bossa/general Brazilian albums in the last week or so.
|7||Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso|
Chega de Saudade
Title track is so good.
|9|| ||Nara Leao|
Dez Anoz Depois
Dignity of Labour
Continually repping these guys.
History is What's Happening
|12|| ||Kalaprusha Maurice McIntyre|
Humility In The Light of The Creator
The Origin of the Chaul
Great noisy drone/ambient.
His release from last year, Streets, gained a few ratings on here, but his big couple of
releases from the early '90s blow it out of the water. This is absolutely insane stuff.
Long, spirited jams in a similar vain to late Coltrane (Live in Japan, etc).
Another free jazz legend that I have had little luck pushing on Sputnik. This album is
quite accessible by free/avant jazz standards, particularly for it's strong rhythmic
base, provided by of course Parker's fantastic bass playing (best since Mingus) and
the rock solid Hamid Drake. The first few tracks are especially good.
