MITCHELL, ROBERT & SMART, SHIRLEY: Zeitgeist (2)

ROBINSON, NICK: Lost Garden

It works. This is a CD of electric guitar(s), mostly alone - with effects, but not quite falling into any of the boxes. Itís not simply noise or abstract improvisation and itís not nicely arranged tunes, but falls into being some species of long form composition, co... more »

MARTIN ARCHER TRIO: See You Soon or See You Sometime

Just a great listen; a very well recorded example of a trio of fine players, well integrated with high sensitivity, on solid but subtle ground. Music that slips between composition and improvisation, itís stylistically a little ambiguous, but has itís roots in the m... more »
