Arc of Testimony is one of the last recordings to feature legendary drummer Tony Williams, and its bold, experimental textures are a fitting epitaph to his career. Arcana was formed by bassist/producer Bill Laswell with the intention of exploring the outer reaches of fusion, ambient and free jazz. Like the group's debut, Last Wave (released only in Japan), Arc of the Testimony is a freewheeling, unpredictable blend of electronic and acoustic sounds. However, this record is even more adventurous, since it finds a common ground between improvisation and post-production studio trickery. All of the musicians – Williams, Laswell, saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, saxophonist Byard Lancaster, cornetist Graham Haynes, guitarist Nicky Skopelitis and guitarist Buckethead .
Welcome to P49, bringing you the latest selection of new progressive sounds swirling around the ether. There's a strong melodic flavour to many of the tracks on offer, with the return of Jadis and also of former TesseracT singer Ashe O'Hara with Voices From The Fuselage, not to mention European offerings Holon (Norway) and Alex Carpani (Italy). There's also some intriguing electronic prog from worriedaboutsatan, bolstered by the vocals of Anathema's Vincent Cavanagh, OddsFiche's haunting ambience and Edensong's mix of folk prog and metal. There's also psychedelia from The Honey Pot and the return of 70s rockers Jerusalem, too. A little something for everyone.
