Cuneiform's list of stellar Soft Machine archival releases grew longer in February 2015 with this CD/DVD set documenting the group's appearance at the storied Montreux Jazz Festival on July 4, 1974. Switzerland 1974 captures the Softs taking a huge leap into electric guitar-augmented jazz-rock thanks to formidable axeman Allan Holdsworth's addition to the lineup of keyboardist/reedman Karl Jenkins, drummer John Marshall, bassist Roy Babbington, and keyboardist (and only original bandmember) Mike Ratledge…

Sonar and their mesmerizing/infuriating (choose depending on your perspective) music exploded on a unsuspecting world with Cuneiform's release of their album, Static Motion, 2 years ago. An instrumental rock quartet consisting of 2 guitars, bass and drums, they are a progressive, post-minimal, instrumental band from Switzerland. Their name stands for SONic ARchitecture, alluding to their intention of creating polymetrical soundscapes and highly structured aural spaces. Sonar's music is played live without any sequencers, loops or computers using a minimum amount of equipment: 2 guitars, a bass guitar, 3 small amplifiers und a basic drum kit. No effects are used to keep the music as clear, direct and immediate as possible. The group is very concerned about timbres, tension and release, group dynamics and instrumental interplay…

Avant-Prog, RIO | Cuneiform Records #Rune 407

Thinking Plague has been releasing impossible to categorize albums to a devoted fan-base for over 30 years. In This Life, originally released in 1989, was the group's 3rd album. It is probably their most popular release. It comes back into print for the first time in years in a newly remastered version overseen by the band and making its first-ever appearance on Cuneiform. Thinking Plague is a United States avant-garde progressive rock group founded in 1982 by guitarist/composer, Mike Johnson, and bass guitarist/drummer, Bob Drake. Based in Denver, Colorado, the band has been active off and on since 1982, taking on a number of musicians over the years. They have made six studio albums between 1984 and 2012, and released one live album recorded at NEARfest in 2000. Their music is a mix of rock, folk, jazz and 20th-century classical music. In spite of Johnson's dislike of the term, the band has often been categorized as a "RIO" band.

Genre: Classical | Label: BIS | Catalog: BIS 2156

These works of Sally Beamish, composed 2003-12, highlight the inspiration she has found in her adopted homeland Scotland and its landscape and history, while also reflecting her interest in jazz and Scottish traditional music. Often collaboration closely with her performers, the present discs the three concertante works are all played by the eminent soloists for whom they were written: James Crabb, Branford Marsalis and Håkan Hardenberger. Conductor Martyn Brabbins and the RSNO, an ensemble that has performed her works on several occasions, join the former two soloists.

Genre: Classical, Vocal | Label: Hyperion | Catalog: xxx

Václav Jan Krvtitel Tomásek wrote numerous songs and short piano pieces, genres in which his works predate those of his rather more famous near contemporary Franz Schubert by some years. Quite why they are so neglected today is a mystery as this enthralling new album from Renata Pokupic' and Roger Vignoles unfolds twenty-eight songs of a rare appeal. Perhaps we should not be surprised: Tomáek was one of the very few composers of Goethe settings to meet with the great poet's (relatively) undivided approval.

Rock & Roll, Ska, Rockabilly | Label: Sunday Best Recordings - SBESTCD64

Creating an appealing post-modern rockabilly sound for the Camden Town crowd may seem like a challenge, but the London-based siblings Kitty, Daisy, and Lewis Durham make it appear effortless. For their latest album, The Third, which is exclusively streaming below, the trio molded a nostalgia-soaked menagerie of tunes with country, jazz, blues, and straight rock- 'n'-roll melodies. The mod album opener, "Whenever You See Me," provides a punchy, riot grrrl-esque ode to female empowerment; "Good Looking Woman" evokes the '50s era Ray Charles songbook; and the horn-heavy "Turkish Delight" is infused with equal parts ska and jazz.

An Italian band from Perugia with a very long story, that hadn't left any recordings until recently, apart from a lonely track on a rare split promo single. L'Estate di San Martino was created in 1975 to provide the musical background to a theatre play with a sound mostly based on acoustic guitars, flute and percussion. In 1978 the group took part in the Centocittà contest, reaching the final show in Capri and winning the chance of recording the single "Il Bimbo e l'Eroe". The record was released, but only in promotional form. In the following years the line-up became stable with the addition of new musicians to enrich the sound, with use of keyboards, electric guitar and drums, and the group had an intense live activity mostly in Umbria, with shows based on concept projects, and long tracks with large instrumental parts…

From New Orleans to Paris and festivals around the globe, this trio plays with some of the best in swinging jazz today. David Blenkhorn (John Faddis, Scott Hamilton, Lee Konitz), Sebastien Girardot (Lillian Boutte, Evan Christopher, Cecile McLorin Salvant) and Guillaume Nouaux (Donald Harrison Jr, Chuck Berry, Leroy Jones) have a fresh take on these standards of new orleans jazz combining elements of creole, blues and funk. It is for good reason that this trio is Evan Christopher’s preferred rhythm section as it developed its personal sound informed by his knowledge of the culture and music of New Orleans (he also writes the liner notes). This group has already proven itself talented accompanists to some of the top jazzmen and is ready to take centre stage in their own right. –Augustin BONDOUX & Patrick FREMEAUX
