A quartet of creative improvisers from Montreal--Joane Hetu (sax and voice), Pierre-Yves Martel (viola da gamba, harmonica), Emilie Mouchous (synth)--and from Germany--Carl Ludwig Hubsch (tuba)--blend conventional instruments with objects and profound techniques to create detailed and carefully controlled aural environments, enveloping the listener in rich, imaginative environments.

The long-running association of Chicago legends, trombonist George Lewis and saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell, are recorded live at CTM Festival at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, in Berlin in 2018, accompanied by Lewis' laptop adding a third voice that responds and generates textural and rhythmic accompaniment in response to the playing of both improvisers; impressive and exotic.

Sakata, Akira / Simon Nabatov / Takashi Seo / Darren Moore: Not Seeing Is A Flower

Shipp, Matthew / Mat Maneri: Conference Of The Mat/ts

Starting with their 1994 "Critical Mass" album, and as a follow-up to pianist Matthew Shipp and violist Mat Maneri's initial duo on Hatology, "Gravitational Systems", the collaboration of pianist Matthew Shipp and violist Mat Maneri expands with this 13-part "Conference", in a freely improvised and empathetic music of force and fragile sophistication; beautiful.

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.: Sacred And Inviolable Phase Shift

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.'s studio album with 5 extended improvised psychedelic rock pieces from guitarist Kawabata Makoto, bassist Wolf, drummer Satoshima Nani, synth player Higashi Hiroshi, and new guitarist/vocalist Jyonson Tsu also on bouzouki; wonderfully detailed and completely spaced out rock from the Japanese masters of the form.

Satie, Erik (Aleman / Vandromme): Socrate
(Edition Wandelweiser Records)

A beautiful rendering of French composer Eric Satie's 1918 masterwork "Socrate", originally for four sopranos and chamber orchestra, here stripped to its essence as a duo with Olalla Aleman on soprano and Guy Vandromme on piano, maintaining Satie's characterist reserve and refinement in the 3 parts: "portrait of socrates"; "banks of the ilissus"; and "death of socrates".
