All Night Burner
The Crown Royals
"This instrumental Chicago quartet plays a funky, low-down, utterly addictive combination of rock, blues and jazz, one that seduces the listener with captivating grooves and rock-solid rhythms. -Chicago Tribune"
The DKV Thing Trio
"Recorded live at Krakow Jazz Autumn in 2014, Collider unites two of the hardest hitting contemporary outfits in an off the wall summit."
The Ex & Brass Unbound
""33 years into their career, Dutch punks the Ex are more interested in expanding the horizons of their music than in repeating their past. Enormous Door is an acrobatic, ferocious record, a welcome burst of electric noise and squealing horns from a group whose power and flexibility keep growing with time." –Pitchfork"
Burn the Incline (Limited Edition Double CD)
The Vandermark 5
"Straight up funk grooves erupt into shrieking noisefests, only to subside into gentle ballad swing. The members of the V5 cooperate under his leadership on Burn the Incline to produce these amazing effects: the twin sax lead of Vandermark and Rempis powers forward under the propulsion of the versatile rhythm section of Kessler and Mulvenna. Bassist Kent Kessler gets his own time in the lead, and he uses it to advantage shaping the flow of the music."
Free Jazz Classics Vol. 3 & 4
The Vandermark 5
"The two discs are very different in mood and style with the latter being less, intense perhaps, but still looser, riskier, and genial. Bishop's solo on "Black and Crazy Blues," is pure hard bop-blues swinging. Suites Vandermark arranged are wonderful, full of surprise and great humor -- something you wouldn't expect from him, but you did from Kirk. If you didn't have a chance to pick these up on their original release, now's your chance. This set is not to be missed."
