ROCK: This is the dark and spectacular new album from Croatian surf titans the Bambi Molesters. Supporting cast includes Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey from R.E.M., Chris Eckman from The Walkabouts and Eduoardo "Speedo" Martinez from The Flaming Sideburns. The album, recorded in the top Slovenian RSL Production studios in Novo Mesto late last year, features amazing writing, exceptional musicianship, solid arranging and confirms the band's unique position in the surf pantheon. Surf experts Reverb Central put it thus: "Like their previous releases, they occupy a unique place in surf, trad based, but not derivative at all."

FOLK/BLUEGRASS: Here are two albums of protest folk and blues by singer songwriter Julius Lester, one from 1965 and the other from 1967. They were both originally released on Vanguard and these rare original albums have never been reissued on CD before. Lester was active politically in the underground black protest movement. He was an early member of the Black Panthers (leaving when it was taken over by violent separatists). His beautifully written songs reflect his political concerns. An excellent photographer, the booklet contains examples of his work taken in the American south and Vietnam in the mid-to-late 60s, although the cover shot was taken by David Gahr, a very old friend. The booklet contains an in-depth interview with Lester conducted by Tim Tooher.

BLUES: This album is the product of a friendship that developed more than three decades ago between two men who, although they grew up near the same Mississippi Delta town of Tchula, never met until they began living in Chicago. Harmonica/vocalist Lester Davenport and guitarist/producer Jimmy Dawkins are united here professionally after years of running around the city's West Side. Lester's vibrant, rocking CD with 12 original tracks is a magical place where blues giants like Jimmy Dawkins, Bob Stroger, Detroit Jr. -- and the "Mad Dog" himself -- still roam.

JAZZ: Good Medicine - what we strive for our music to be. The natural reverberations of earth and sky. From time before time humans have been creating music for healing: to balance psycho - emotional pathways, to harmonize the cellular vibrations of the body, to expand consciousness itself. This way of wisdom was shared with us by the elders of this music as the essential approach to creativity. The mix - bands of tin are wrapped around the tongue keys of the thumb piano, the metal sarsara rattle is inserted into the end of the Gnawa sintir, a gut string is strung across the skin of the brekete drum. Throughout much of Africa musician-healers have used these and other methods to alter the voice of their instruments so when played, a parallel "shadow line" of sound is heard. These rhythm overtones are sometimes called "the voice of the ancestors" and are linked to the transcendent quality of the music. In recent years, artists like Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Congotronics used newer technologies for this. The music on this recording was mixed with this idea in mind. The sounds of the instruments are allowed to resonate into deep space, creating a shadow world of harmonic colors. As the music unfolds each instrumental voice sings into this space adding to the dance of orchestration and form. Adam Rudolph: handrumset (kongos, djembe, tarijas, zabumba), sintir, cajon, thumb pianos, cup gongs, bells, gongs, cymbals, kongo slit drum, selya overtone flutes, vocal, percussion. Joseph Bowie: trombone, electronics, vocal, harmonica, congas, balaphone, shakers, waterphone, thumb pianos, cowbell, shekere, caxixi, percussion

JAZZ: These rare recordings made at Birdland in New York City on three consecutive Monday nights in the winter of 1951 capture some of the finest ever freewheeling playing of the iconic saxophonist. The superb rhythm section comprising pianist John Lewis, bassist Gene Ramey and the incomporable Jo Jones on drums was just perfect for Prez. Their cinsumate professionalism makes this marriage "made in heaven" just too marvellous for words!

JAZZ: "I love composing improvised music and improvising composed music - improvising is something you can't improvise - the main thing is to evaluate the urgency of saying something as it is being said - the only difference between composition and improvisation is the sense of time. Sometimes I like to put more metaphysics in music, sometimes more music in metaphysics. Each tune "as the crow flies". - Guido Mazzon. Housed in a DVD style case.

JAZZ: This recording, taped in August of 1967, was the first release on the Nessa label. It was also the first recorded documentation of a quartet soon to be known as the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Two years later Lester Bowie, Roscoe Mitchell, Joseph Jarman and Malachi Favors ventured to Paris as a first step towards conquering the world. This 24 bit remaster, from the original half inch 4 track session tapes, restores the program as originally released for the first time on compact disc. The complete unedited sessions can be heard on Lester Bowie's "All the Numbers", a 2 disc set also on Nessa. 50th anniversary reissue of this classic free jazz session!

JAZZ: (2-CD set) These first recordings under Lester Bowie's name were made in 1967 with his compatriots from the Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble. Originally issued in edited form as Numbers 1 & 2 on a single lp, these two discs contain all the material recorded over two days in the studio. The first session was a trio date with Malachi Favors (bass, etc) and Roscoe Mitchell (saxophones, etc). A week later reed virtuoso Joseph Jarman was added to the group. These recordings were the first documentation of the quartet soon recognized as the Art Ensemble of Chicago. While repeated takes of the same thematic material can be a boring exercise, in this instance the performances all develop very differently and give insight to the workings of this well known group.
