Clean Feed New Releases


Pharoah Sanders

Cover of Pharoah Sanders

From Clean Feed:

CF’s 300 (Primitive Jupiter) and CF 301 (Spiral Mercury) Chicago/São Paulo Underground Feat. Pharoah Sanders Pharoah & The Underground – were recorded at the same Jazz em Agosto, Lisbon, show but there are different material on both as this was an extraordinary long concert.

CF 305 Baloni Belleke – is the follow up to the much acclaimed “Fremdenzimmer”. A trio of a rare sophistication and beauty.

CF 306 Joe Morris Quartet Balance – it’s the return of Joe’s mythical quartet with Mat Maneri, Chris Lightcap and Gerald Cleaver. One of the stronger bands in the nineties. Historical comeback indeed.

CF 307 Adam Lane´s Full Throttle Orchestra Live in Ljubljana – is part of the now legendary Ljubljana Series where the band played two years ago. Amazing music including some new compositions with great musical empathy, great playing, writing and live sound.

CF 308 Kullhammar / Aalberg / Zetterberg / Mathisen
Basement Sessions Vol.3 (The Ljubljana Tapes) – is also a Ljubljana recording from last year’s festival as the trio performed with Jorgen Mathisen as a guest. The recordings were made before the audience got in. Indeed an incredible set.

CF 309 Cortex Live! – is the first release on CF by the band that is now called as the “new Atomic” for the great mix of new ingredients added to the blue note sound of the 60′s just to simplify. The rest you can get it through your ears.

SHH 011 Joana Gama & Luís Fernandes Quest – Everything flows like Zen soundscapes in the inner world inside our heads, and the music has a poetic, lyrical dimension that makes us reconnect with the idea of Beauty of the Ancient Greeks.

SPAM / AGOSTINO DI SCIPIO
spam – musical sculpteres and other devices

A sonic journey into Cage and surroundings by renown composer Agostino di Scipio and his talented students. On the 9th of December 2012, upon inviation of the Associazione Scarlatti, Agostino di Scipio and his students at the San Pietro A Majella Conservatory (hence the name SPAM) gave a performance of a very rare piece, John Cage’s Sculptures Musicales. The performance was planned out by Dario Sanfilippo, based on the few annotations left by Cage (which in turn followed an idea Cage took from Marcel Duchamp): the “musical sculptures” are sound blocks shaped up by either electronic or acoustical instruments

New Releases from Edgetone Records


English: Rent Romus performing at the San Fran...

Rent Romus

From Edgetone Records:

Drew Ceccato, Adam Tinkle – Eidolon

A numberless array of nameless, chordal sounds and spectral potentialities reside in the misuse of the saxophone’s well-oiled mechanics. Adam Tinkle and Drew Ceccato have gradually built their duo music out of a shared interest in these multiphonic capabilities of the instrument hanging on to their own internal chords, exploring the emergent harmonies between two misbehaving air columns in turbulent flow.
Drew Ceccato – tenor and baritone saxophones Adam Tinkle – alto saxophone

Rent Romus‘ Life’s Blood Ensemble – Cimmerian Crossroads

The third album from Rent Romus and the Life’s Blood Ensemble features original music by saxophonist Rent Romus as well as compositions from Arthur Blythe, Ornette Coleman, bassist Bill Noertker, and pianist Brett Carson. Cimmerian Crossroads explore the subtle boarders of style and element within jazz and improvisation as well as a dedication and tribute to those who have dedicated their lives to the music.
Kim Cass – double bass Markus Hunt – double bass Timothy Orr – drums Rent Romus – alto, soprano saxophones

TheeAnnoying – The Empty Set

Recorded over 2011 & 2012 at Mills College, our practice spot & bathroom. Each song’s first track is live and attempts to capitalize on the ambiance of different rooms. From that point on, we overdubbed using sounds recorded in a room that had the opposite size and shape.
Ten Ticklish Ants – noisy guitar walls and vocals M. Mersereau – bass, vocals and samples D.A. Leech – electric & analog percussion, piano

Rune Grammofon announces 128-page book dedicated to free jazz


From Tiny Mix Tapes:

Rune Grammofon has just announced Free Jazz And Improvisation On Vinyl 1965-1985, a 128-page overview of 60 independent labels and their releases of free jazz during that period. It’s a time frame that more or less ends with the advent of the CD, with freelance art historian (and author of Free Jazz) Johannes Rød surely appreciating the benefits of a narrowed but in-depth focus.
