[Music] NERATERRÆ – The Substance of Perception

Alessio Antoni is a friend of the blog, having made a previous appearance with his disc The NHART Demo​[​n​]​s in March of 2018.  His latest release surpasses even that dark masterpiece of a debut, partly because he continues to explore the depths of sound, and partly because he was a few guests adding a few […]

[Music] Kiriakos Sfetsas – Greek Fusion Orchestra – Χωρίς Σύνορα [Vinyl Rip]

Kiriakos Sfetsas and the Greek Fusion Orchestra provide a cool combination of jazz fusion and a light touch of ethnic Greek music.  A VERY light touch, but it works beautifully on this album.

[Music] Yazz Ahmed – Lahan al​-​Mansour

‘High priestess of psychedelic Arabic jazz’ couldn’t fit better for British/Bahraini trumpeter and band leader Yazz Ahmed.  She is the queen of jazz fusion at the moment, and her band is as tight as can possibly be.  One track, of course, is not enough, but I’m hoping it’s a taste of what is to come.

[Music] Petyaev-Petyaev – The Double

Fancy Music releases another stellar album.  The brothers Petyaev, Peter (saxophone) and Pavel (guitar) front a band that would be favorably comparable to legendary 1980s New York jazz-funk bands like Material or Mark Ribot’s many collaborative efforts, but there’s also a very dark, angry, post-punk vibe to this album, thanks to the fine bass playing […]
