PFS, Illustrative Problems, Cuneiform Rcds, LP, 1986

PFS were conceived in 1983 in San Francisco, by Scott Brazieal (piano, keyboards and tapes), Herbert Diamant (saxes and bassoon) and Gary Parra (percussion and noises), all of whom had previously had a reasonably successful career in the instrumental avant-prog band CARTOON.  However, musically, PFS are much darker in their sound and take more influences from classical composers, such as ROBERT SCHUMANN, BÉLA BARTÓK and LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN, rather than CARTOON's more quirky cartoon and chamber rock influences.  PFS...

Don Cherry, Eternal Now, Sonet Prod., LP, 1974

I'm (almost) discovering this record with you. I've bought it 2 weeks ago at the flea market, and I'm still under the impression. Everybodies knows Don Cherry for his collaborations with the early free jazz activists Ornette Colmenan and Albert Ayler in the 50's, but if you liked my psychedelic Vox Populi! post, and terrestrials tunes such as Raksha Mancham, O Yuki Conjugate or Vasilisk you should enjoyed this LP (side B = wah! wah ! wah!). Side A : 1. Gamla Stan - The Old Town by Night (7:40) 2. Love Train (7:40) 3. Bass Figure... [Lire la suite]
