Masada – Ne’eman (2000)

Live in Sevilla, recorded and released in the year 2000, is arguably the finest document in this extremely prolific jazz quartet’s catalog. If there’s anyone who still believes that John Zorn is nothing more than an avant-garde screamer, look no further. The interplay between Zorn’s alto and the trumpet of Dave Douglas is nothing short of amazing, and each one’s soloing is focused and intense. Joey Baron and Greg Cohen are a fantastic rhythm section; Cohen acts as anchor while Baron playfully dances around the beat, simultaneously supplying a driving pulse. Even when Zorn and Douglas enter the realm of extended techniques (as on the end of “Ne’eman”), Cohen and Baron keep things firmly grounded.”Allmusic

John Zorn – Chronology (1989)

John Zorn ‎– Spy Vs. Spy: The Music Of Ornette Coleman

John Zorn teams up with fellow altoist Tim Berne, bassist Mark Dresser and both Joey Baron and Michael Vatcher on drums to perform 17 Ornette Coleman tunes which range chronologically from 1958’s “Disguise” to four selections from 1987’s In All Languages. The performances are concise with all but four songs being under three minutes and seven under two, but the interpretations are unremittingly violent.” Allmusic

John Zorn, George Lewis, Bill Frisell – News for Lulu (1987)

“Fun, fun, brilliant, spirit-raising fun. News For Lulu, recorded in 1987 and here reissued in a new master with a bonus track, features three idiosyncratic post-modern improvisers in a homage to the late 1950s hard bop songbook—not playing the material for laughs, not subjecting it to “reconstruction,” but approaching it with joy, respect, truck loads of energy and unfettered, viral abandon.” Allaboutjazz

John Zorn – End Title (from ‘White And Lazy’) (1986)

“Film Works 1986-1990 opens with John Zorn’s first film score, White and Lazy. In just under ten minutes comes small capsules of instrumental punk, rockabilly, dark ambient, nightclub jazz, until “End Title,” with vocals by Arto Lindsay, and soloing by Robert Quine (of Lou Reed’s band), who Zorn regards as “a punk guitar genius.” The other musicians on these first six tracks are bassist Melvin Gibbs, reeds player Ned Rothenberg, harpist Carol Emanuel, keyboardist David Weinstein, and drummer Anton Fier.” Allmusic

Impala – Prime Directive (2018)

“The all-instrumental combo, formed in the early ’90s, has recently been revived after disbanding in 1997. In The Late Hours is the act’s first new material in more than 20 years and its sixth album overall. Led in part by Scott Bomar of blues/soul revivalists The Bo-Keys, the five piece cranks out what used to be known as bachelor pad music, as long as the bachelor in question is a combination of James Bond, Sam Spade, Inspector Clouseau and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Sleek and sporty as its mid-’60s Chevy namesake automobile, Impala’s ride is smooth and more than able to handle the music’s inherent curves.” Source

Juliana Hatfield – Physical (2018)

“Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John is the fifteenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Juliana Hatfield. It was released on April 13, 2018, by American Laundromat Records. It’s a tribute album to Australian singer Olivia Newton-John, in which Hatfield covers thirteen songs sung by Newton-John, most of them originally released as singles. From every sale of the album, one dollar will be donated to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre, Newton-John’s own cancer treatment organization” Wiki

Szun Waves – Constellation (2018)

“Szun Waves’ jazz is as grounded by the earth’s elements as it is afloat in space. The experimental trio, comprised of Luke Abbott, Portico Quartet’s Jack Wyllie, and Laurence Pike of PVT, released their debut album At Sacred Walls in 2016, which recalled the celestial jazz of Alice Coltrane and Sun Ra mixed in with a grimier rock crunch. “Constellation,” the lead single from Szun Waves’ forthcoming record New Hymn to Freedom, draws from the same astral inspiration, expanding galaxies of sound while evoking earthy imagery.” Source

Fu Manchu – Regal Begal (1996)

“Fu Manchu was one of the most enduring and influential bands of the ’90s stoner metal movement (along with Kyuss, Monster Magnet, and Sleep), but it wasn’t until their third full-length release, In Search Of…, that the Southern California stoners finally obtained “major” label support by signing with Mammoth Records — not that this had any effect on singer Scott Hill’s indistinctive vocals, or the band’s fuzzy dirge of post-Sabbath riffery with psychedelic overtones. And like most Fu Manchu albums, In Search Of… is a very inconsistent affair, with only a few cuts such as “Asphalt Risin’,” “Strato-Freak,” and “Seahag” really standing out of the pack. Simply put, one gets the impression that Fu Manchu doesn’t try that hard, but then, not every band wants to rule the world. Thankfully, the departure of guitarist Eddie Glass and drummer Ruben Romano to form Nebula soon after this recording would provide the band with the impetus and inspiration to really start moving forward on the following year’s much improved The Action Is Go.” Allmusic
