Have Spacesuit will Travel pt1


Have Spacesuit will Travel pt2

“It’s been a year since the magnificent ‘Dark Is The Sun’ first enchanted listeners back in 2011, and we’re thrilled to announce the next installment of mesmerizing non-contemporary jazz by The Greg Foat Group with their new album Girl And Robot With Flowers.
Evading the dreaded ‘second album syndrome’ with consummate ease, Girl And Robot With Flowers is a sonic soundscape of epic proportions that leaves Dark is the Sun in the dust while propelling the listener into infinity and beyond!
With a doff of the hat to sci-fi writer Brian Aldiss, we’re whisked off on a thematic journey into the emotive and enthralling realms of cinematic jazz, seductive ambience and exciting, majestic drama. Often unpredictable and certainly never dull…”Source

The Scorpions & Saif Abu Bakr – Farrah Galbi Aljadeed (1980)


“I’m writing these introductory words in early August 2018. It is a Sunday and tomorrow The Scorpions will have one of their first rehearsals again. Seif Abu Bakr returned to his home country Sudan from Kuwait few weeks ago and the plan to re-release the music had been an igniting spark as well. Either way, it seems the narration of The Scorpions has not reached its end yet, let us hope this will only be another starting point within the bands long career. A starting point from which onwards they will receive a little more of the attention they have had deserved right from the beginning; both by a new generation of Sudanese as well as by the rest of the world.

Condor Gruppe – Orbit Of The Sun & Moon (2018)

“Condor Gruppe is back with a new record, INTERPLANETARY TRAVELS. The title hinting at Sun Ra is no coincidence. Pushing their musical boundaries even further, Condor Gruppe recorded 8 new songs that give you the creepy feel of a horror soundtrack, the heroïsm of the best film scores and the hypnotising grooves of jungle tribes. Diverse, yet exciting and challenging enough to give you a mesmerizing trip through the band’s own dusty record shelves.

The Record will be released on March 16th at De Roma in Antwerp. More info here:

“Mangelsdorff hielt das Never Let It End-Album für eine besonders geglückte Aufnahme seines damaligen Quartetts; er erinnerte dabei besonders an die Solo-Passagen von Heinz Sauer auf dem Altsaxophon und die kollektiv improvisierten Parts. Mangelsdorff zählte Never Let It End zudem zu den herausragenden Alben der europäischen Szene, gerade durch die Verbindung zwischen freier Improvisation und einem gewissen Haften an der Tradition; er bedauerte nur die wenig engagierte Vermarktungsstrategie durch MPS nach der Veröffentlichung des Original-Albums in den 1970er Jahren.” Wiki

Karsten Vogel – Montmartre (2018)

“In the last couple of years Vogel has released two albums, one with focus on Vogel’s great inspiration Charlie Parker, and one in cooperation with Per Aage Brandt, exploring their avantgarde roots. Now, Karsten Vogel is ready to release a new album with focus on his compositions and especially on his Saxophone playing. The album, entitled This Is It, should be seen as the completion of Vogels journey within music, as it is the final expression of what his great storytelling can amount to. Consequently, the are no plans for future recording sessions.” Storyville

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
