    This is great, as I have come to expect. Eskelin, Helias and Herb Robertson this time, so no trombone.

    The songwriting is not as immediately memorable this time out as it is on every other one I have heard. That doesn't mean it's not as good, I have to listen more to determine that.

    Really fun bossanova flair through the opening track. Never heard this one before.

    I never know what to make of this duo. There are a few vocal sections that don't work for me, but they will also lock into a really nice hypnotic groove at times. I do like the band's sound, and they usually keep things interesting.

    "What Is A Ghost? - Is It Really Me? takes a new approach, melting together detuned synth drones with dead-eyed woodwinds or the occasional wall of layered guitar clusters. The energy of the project moves nervously to different corners of the room, talking to the wall in a metered, peaceful cadence one moment and growing more anxious and crazed the next."

    10 10 10 by Mujician - released today on Cuneiform.

    A recording from 2010, their last recording as drummer Tony Levin passed away a few months later.

    From Paul Dunmall: 'I believe that Mujician was one of the great groups in jazz history. It wasn't just a free jazz group, it covered so many areas'.

    Bandcamp has a number of Eliane Radigue titles available for download. Some of it is music that is otherwise only available on expensive vinyl, like this one, an early feedback work:

    Eliane Radigue - Opus 17 (bandcamp download, 1970)

    I was briefly famous in an internet sort of way about 20 years when I announced that “Mujician is the greatest improvising group in the history of music”.

    still somewhat close to the truth - at their peak - mid 90’s - “Poem About the Hero” is a very good album - while “Birdman” & “Colours Fulfilled” are works of pure genius. The later 2 releases are average at best: “Spacetime” is the better of the two.

    let’s hope we get some of the magic of the group from 15 years earlier.

    "There's No Going Back Now" is a pretty good later album, 2006. It's not "Colours Fulfilled," but worth hearing.
    Much as I love Mujician, I find Tippet's solo work even stronger.

    I like when Rivers plays sax a lot more than piano and flute but the stuff he plays on the latter two is great. Nevertheless, the first piece is my favorite with Rivers on tenor. This is a fantastic album all around; I think it was @sberger on this thread that put me on to it.

    Crystals Sam Rivers
    Great album with large outfit

    Meditations John Coltrane

    One of my favorites by him
