Naughton, Bobby / Wadada Leo Smith / Perry Robinson: The Haunt

Reissuing Otic Records' 1976 LP "The Haunt" led by Bobby Naughton on vibes in a trio with Wadada Leo Smith on trumpet, and Perry Robinson on clarinet, very much in the India Navigation / loft scene vein of forward-thinking free improvisation: spacious and thoughtful as the players meticulously develop their concepts with uncompromising skill and artistry.

Rempis, Dave / Jasper Stadhouders / Frank Rosaly: ICOCI

With long-time Chicago partners saxophonist Dave Rempis and drummer Frank Rosaly, plus Dutch guitarist and electric bassist Jasper Stadhouders (Cactus Truck, Made to Break), this new trio plays assertive and energetic free jazz that shreds melodic riffs and raw power, decelerating for contemplative moments, as heard in two large improvisations named by digital sequences.

ZNR: Traite De Mecanique Populaire
(Recommended Records)

French composer and producer Hector Zazou's 2nd and last release with a "most exquisite and eccentric of groups, who hardly touched the world of working bands, and whose existence was tenuous, flickering, mythological - and yet who managed, stealthily, to find its way in time to legendary status by leaving an indelible trace in recorded form of their verifiable existence."

Ravenstine, Allen: Waiting For The Bomb
(Recommended Records)

Many years after Pere Ubu and his work as a pilot, one of the world's most unique synth players, Allen Ravenstine, releases an album of composed works, 18 discrete hybrid miniature sound worlds that blend acoustic, real-world and synthetic sounds in unorthodox ways that elusively twist conventional approaches with unexpected elements and narrative twists.
