Genre: Neo-Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Progressive Promotion Records

In 2019 Crayon Phase released their second album "Two Hundred Pages" via Progressive Promotion Records. "Two Hundred Pages" is the story of a man who wakes up every morning without knowing what happened the day before. He is not aware that he suffers from anterograde amnesia and tries to understand his situation which appears unexplainable to him. He finds himself being abused by a crime syndicate and gets involved in criminal activities over and over again, but with his diary he starts to find out - by going back in time - how he got into this desperate situation and can get out of it again… Each song of this 75 minute concept album tells a different chapter of the story in a different period of his life. The music reflects the spirit of each phase and takes you through the story with atmospheres changing from dark to epic, from catchy to deep, from mystic to aggressive, but still stays tight and cohesive as one piece of music.

Landmarq are a prog rock band from the UK, who after taking something of a decade long break have returned with 2012 album of ethereal, powerful and, totally progressive music. The songs are beautiful and well crafted and the performance is stellar. The band seems to have no musical limitations or boundaries as they mix rock, prog, classical and even sorta jazzy type stuff with vocal passages that could be in a Broadway play. The star of the show is vocalist Terry Hitchings as she is a true talent. Her vocal sounds are unique, passionate and draw the listener in. Keyboardist Mike Varty is the other bookend as his passages weave the sound together and move it forward. There are guest performances on the album from cellist Hugh McDowell (ELO, Wizzard) and saxophonist Laurent Hunziker (Logicaltramp, Tiptop, Gino Sitson)…

Genre: Contemporary Jazz | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Enja Records (6072 2)

Pianist/composer George Gruntz had led his Concert Jazz Band for nearly 20 years at the time of this Enja CD. Although the personnel changes to a large extent every year, Gruntz's principles for his music (all of which he arranges) have remained the same: utilize flexible virtuosi on a repertoire of originals drawn entirely from the band. This particular release combines such major players as altoist Chris Hunter, guitarist John Scofield, trombonist Ray Anderson, trumpeters Wallace Roney, Jon Faddis, Randy Brecker, Michael Mossman, Marvin Stamm, John D'Earth and Franco Ambrosetti and tenors Bob Mintzer, Bob Malach and Jerry Bergonzi on a diverse and well-rounded set of unpredictable music. Anderson's "Rap for Nap" is particularly odd. It's well worth investigating.

Genre: Instrumental Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Lizard Records (LIZARD CD 0114)

Like four previous full-length studio releases, "Lavoro D’Amore” album contains purely instrumental music. The sound in general is based on the keyboards by Ivan Rozmainsky who is permanent leader of the band, but drums, percussion, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, flutes and trumpet are also very important! This is the most “rockish” album of the band, and it was recorded completely without guests reflecting “concert power” of Roz Vitalis. The style of "Lavoro D’Amore" - like any other Roz Vitalis stuff - can be described as the "Unclassifiable Branch of Prog Rock". However, such tags as "Psychedelic Art-Rock" or "Between Sympho Prog and Avant Prog", are, perhaps, also partly relevant. Music of Roz Vitalis is about The Ineffable and The Unfathomable. In particular, it is about human aspiration for The Unapproachable Light.

The sleevenotes read like a veritable "who's who" of current synth artists: Paul Ellis, Nemesis, Free System Projekt, Robert Carty, Rudy Adrian, Kubusschnitt, Dave Fulton, Synthetic Block, Paul Nagle, Arcane, John Christian (from AirSculpture) and Ramp. This project was borne from the internet chat group "beyond_em", a thriving source of news, information and general gossip which has hundreds of subscribers, including the artists here and many more. 'Beyond Me' is the result, a virtual embarrassment of riches. There is so much tempting music on this album you really won't know where to start. The majority of tracks are new, only the Arcane piece has appeared previously on the 'Alterstill' CDR, and Paul Nagle's track has appeared in remixed form on 'Blue Book'.

Another anthology that has less value due to the exploding reissue market. These cuts were among Parker's most influential compositions and performances, but they've been reissued many times, both in anthology packages and on re-releases of their original albums. But it's part of the Essentials sampler line, and if you only want a little Parker, it's a good choice.

After too many years during which he was missing and presumed forever lost in action, Brown returned to prominence with this very credible album, cut with backing by guitarist Tinsley Ellis and the Heartfixers and originally issued on the tiny Landslide logo. He reprises his salacious blues "Lemon Squeezin' Daddy" and rolls his R's like the good old days on dusties by Little Walter, the Midnighters, Howlin' Wolf, and even Bob Dylan and the Allmans.

Before forming Living Life, Johnny Betti was a drummer on the first line-up of psychedelic Italian band Circus 2000. After leaving the band, Betti spent a few years touring Europe with jazz musicians until his trip in Aghanistan for a year. In 1975 he formed Living Life in Turin and created his own record label Shirak which released his albums and on the debut he was joined by a former Circus 2000 guitarist Marcello Quartarone. The two albums by Living Life were released six years apart, ranging from jazz rock influenced by folk music to more symphonic influenced on the second release which involded four keyboard players. Living Life disbanded like many unnoticed bands on Betti's record label.

Like Danilo Pérez, Brad Mehldau, and any number of jazz pianists, Canadian piano player and composer Renee Rosnes keeps challenging herself and pushing herself and her collaborators in new directions. As a young pianist in Vancouver, British Columbia, Rosnes took her musical cues and inspiration from the likes of Oscar Peterson, McCoy Tyner, and Horace Silver. She began playing classical piano at age three and was bitten by the jazz bug in high school, after a high-school music teacher recruited her for the jazz band. She attended the University of Toronto for two years to study classical performance, but left to go back home to Vancouver and begin playing jazz full-time, because she knew where her heart lay and what she wanted to do professionally…

For their latest project, Animat have composed and produced a new soundtrack for the survival drama film All Is Lost. Animat’s soundtrack uses elements from the film's sound effects track and combines them with their trademark dub-infused ambient electronica…
