Helena Espvall leads Espers as cellist and vocalist. Shes also pretty weird. This album is a cello and bells drone exploration for the most part. Pretty abstract and ethereal. Mesmerizing for sure.
Jazz-prog-fusion craziness. Fronted by Gary Boyle, featuring Hugh Hopper, Nigel Morris on drums, Laurance Scott on keys. Very jazzy and very rocking. At times borders on progmetal. Super satisfying listen.
Basically, Robert Wyatt is a hard partying prog rock guy from the old days who wrote this album after falling out of the window on the third floor of a party. Friends like Fred Frith and Hugh Hopper helped him on this album, as well as many other fine talents.
A great Jazz Fusion album led by Stomy Yamashta, Japanese drummer and keyboardist who later led Go. Also features Hugh Hopper on bass, who played with Allan Holdsworth in Soft Machine. His bass lines are fantastic. They integrate various music traditions very subtely if you listen closely. Its a wonder to follow him! And of course the drums move things perfectly and keep everything fresh and interesting.
Amazing album by the late and great Allan HOLDSworth. Amazing guitar player. Basically discovered all the tenants of theory by himself. Simply amazing player, changed the course of the guitar, paving the way for Zappafreaks and Mahavishnu and metal and all that jazz.
Interesting instrumental guitar album. Some cool and inspirational stuff for people genuinely interested in the instrument. Features Fred Frith, who DIdkovsky plays with.
Some heavy Finish stoner metal. Reminds of Elder and Zoroaster but their own sound. Heavy and thundering like a viking god over mountains. Some psychedelic sections too. No shortage of sick fuzz tones.
