The Contemporary Jazz Quintet – Inner Beckoning (1973)

‘Location’ dropped on Cox’s own Strata imprint. Led by Kenny Cox on piano and electric piano, the quintet also features Charles Moore on flugelhorn, trumpet and percussion – an enormously influential figure on the Detroit scene – along with guitarist and Motown side-man Ron English. This five-track offering shows the ensemble to have side-stepped the shadow of 60’s Miles Davis for a more muscular and explosive art form. From the aptly entitled opening salvo of ‘Bang’ to the expansive thirteen minute ‘Inner Beckoning’, ‘Location’ delivers that sense of restless reflection and stubborn resistance which characterized the dawn of the Seventies in the Motor City.” Source

Carla Bozulich & Freddy Ruppert – Glass House (2018)


“Carla Bozulich is diversely experimental, uncompromising and continues to be ceaselessly devoted to mixing art-punk ethics and creativity. Here, with Quieter, is an intensely emotive, intuitive, enchantingly cohesive collection of previously orphaned and one-off tracks where, uncharacteristically, nothing ever quite screams. Carla’s way with a fleshy edge remains sharp as ever. A couple of these are left over from the bountifully productive sessions from her brilliant and widely-acclaimed 2014 album Boy; others featuring collaborations with the likes of Marc Ribot, Sarah Lipstate (Noveller), Freddy Ruppert, Shahzad Ismaily and more.” Bandcamp

In their own words: “We had always thought about a cover album, so we agreed to make a small album aimed for release on Record Store Day 2018. In December 2017, we started the new project with a light and excited heart, as soon as we finished recording our second album.
At first, we thought about Yo La Tengo or Pavement which are our all time favorites but we decided to take the music of legendary bands from a little earlier times to cover in our style.
The first song we picked was Velvet Underground’s Beginning To See The Light. It was a song suggested by Sumi. She strongly recommended this song, because she always admired Lou Reed’s self-confident attitude and genius talent…”Bandcamp
