Reissue of the one-and-done Canterbury band originally released in 1978.
Been awhile since we heard from this fabulous Italian instrumental quartet. Even with a revised lineup their fourth album finds them on familiar ground although this time augmented with a few guests including the great violinist Alessandro Bonetti (Deus Ex Machina) on one track.
Second album from this great Spanish prog band of the 70s. Predominantly an instrumental album, this is complex progressive rock that borders on fusion in a Canterbury sort of way but with touches of The Nice.
Great first album from this Spanish ensemble with a strong Canterbury influence.
"First album released in 1972 by these Catalan psych–progsters.
Promenade is a new quartet from Italy led by vocalist Matteo Barisone. The album opens up with the 10+ minute instrumental "Athletics" leading you to believe that this is simply one fiery jazz rock ensemble.
Triode were probably the most unadulterated rock band on the long defunct French jazz label Futura. They were an instrumental quintet focusing on the flute work of Michel Edelin. Wisps of Caravan, Traffic, Jethro Tull and even Jade Warrior will float through the air when you listen.
One of the rarer albums on the French jazz label Futura. Travelling was one of a handful of albums on the label that really were more of a rock album than a jazz record. The band was a trio led by keyboardist Yves Hasselmann.
"This documents an often overlooked phase in the long and complex history of Soft Machine - Australian drummer Phil Howard's five-month interim behind the drum stool between Robert Wyatt's departure and his eventual long-term replacement John Marshall.
"In September, 1968, the Soft Machine had just finished their second, exhaustive tour of the USA supporting the Jimi Hendrix Experience. At the conclusion of the tour, vocalist/drummer/multi-instrumentalist Robert Wyatt stayed, working on recordings in Hollywood and New York City.
New album from this Norwegian instrumental quartet, now signed to Rune Grammofon. Panzerpappa are often labeled under the RIO category and based on my listening experience its more wishful thinking than anything. This is beautiful instrumental progressive rock with some quirky undercurrents.
