Today is a lucky day . One of the rarest tittles from legendary Crammed Disc label : Yasuaki Shimizu’s “Music For Commercial” , being No* 12 of their famous Made To Measure series had been reissued. M2M was exploring the contemporary and progressive music between ’86 – ’95 and series contains some of the real treasures. I own 16 titles from that series out of 36 issued and this one is one of the missing, so I am very looking forward to get it.
Our dear friends in music from MoonJune Records, Iapetus & Audio Anatomy put their act together managed to realise this wonderful Stick Men’s album :
RCD2194 / RLP3194
Release date: August 25
Guitarist and composer Terje Rypdal (1947) is probably as close as one gets to a living legend in Norwegian music. Born in Oslo on 23rd August, Rypdal was already a star at home in his teens with pop-rock group The Vanguards. This was followed by the timely and inevitable passage through psychedelia with quartet The Dream, releasing their only album, Get Dreamy, in 1967.
Limited quantity of Dusan Jevtovic’s second studio album “On The Edge”, recorded in 2008 at Indi Studios, Barcelona, Spain, and released on Indi Records in 2009, is available now via MoonJune. Dusan Jevtovic is Serbian born guitarist, based in Barcelona since 2001.

Three day residency of the Sun Ra Arkestra in Lewes, hosted in the Con Club, is a part of The Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival co-organised by Dictionary Pudding. Arkestra was originally created and led by Sun Ra, as he preferred to be called, in the beginning of 60-ties. As the band it was always an open platform and it had many members floating through during the long period of its existence. Keyboard wizard, Afro-futurist and philosopher Ra led it to his end in 1993, when he left the planet. Today his longest time collaborator – Marshall Allen (92), who took a lead of the band 22 years ago, continues his legacy which he fully contributed to. A lot had been said about Arkestra hence no point for repeating. Those who are interested in history will find for themselves. Let’s talk about present then.
With less than two weeks since my last Jazz gig I’m back into Birmingham again, this times it’s at a much smaller venue, well it’s actually a pub situated in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. The pub holding the gig tonight is the Red Lion, the home of Birmingham Jazz, who tonight were hosting the fabulous guitar playing of Nicolas Meier and Pete Oxley.
I am delighted to post this article below and extremely happy to host it here. Report of the Saturday’s gig is the first one which I outsourced and I hope that it is not going to be the last one too. It had been written by two dear customers , who later on became the friends too. I am proud to say that it is happening to me. I could not go there myself, but I remember that I introduced these artists to my friends at some point and recommended warmly to go the concert if there will be a chance any soon. Nothing makes me more happy than seeing people enjoying the music I love myself too. It is also perfect situation when interest in playback quality which bought us together at the beginning led on the end to the vast exploration of the music. It continues establishing itself on the base of fascination in Art we are sharing, experience and information exchange about our interests on the ground of the spiritual connection to the act, not the focus on the playback quality.
