KRAFTWERK "KRAFTWERK 1" (PHILIPS, 1970)


Three weeks ago I got the new Zeitkratzer. They play tunes from the two first Karftwerk LPs.
For whatever reason Kraftwerk never approved an official reissue of these recording.
After listening to the Zeitkratzer LP I wanted to hear the original again after many years.
Here's a link to the release I'm referring to.
And here you can download an unissued Zeitkratzer from 2002.

Recorded & remixed July-September 1970.

PETR MATUSZEK - On The Threshold Of Light (1996)


PETR MATUSZEK - Na prahu světla / On The Threshold Of Light (Happy Music 1996)

This is not usual IS avant-jazz, but I think it would be interesting to hear for some people here. In the forefront of the album is singing of Petr Matuszek, combining classical and aliquote techniques in the works of Czech contemporary composers. Title is OOP for many years, as the label disappeared from Czech music scene.

UPCOMING + RECENT RELEASES III



I never would have thought that these great sounds will get a reissue. But as a Buddhist monk once in far more serious circumstances remarked I had to little imagination...
At the end of march there will be a 6 CD-box with all the LPs of the Workshop De Lyon and the Free Jazz Workshop.
Not only the previously released yet rare recordings but also unreleased music - already ordered my copy.

 



 Discovered this CD only late in 2016. But in January '17 I realised what for a masterpiece the music contained is - IMO.
Acoustic bass guitar and piano - recommended!
