Prior to this Captured Tracks compilation, copies of Saâda Bonaire’s first and only single “You Could Be More As You Are” fetched a fortune, and their other songs from 1982 and 1985 had remained unreleased, collecting dust. Saâda Bonaire was the brainchild of Bremen DJ Ralph “von” Richtoven, who had a vision for an anomalous […]

John Abercrombie’s first musical output as a band leader was in his own words originally conceived as an “organ record”. The product of persistent nagging from Manfred Eicher, the founder of ECM Records, Abercrombie enlisted close friend and former roommate Jan Hammer to play hammond organ alongside his current bandmate, drummer John De Johnette.

Working again with legendary producer and engineer Conny Plank and recorded at their Kling Klang studio in Dusseldorf, Ralf und Florian is a gorgeous, […]

Fluid Rustle is a subtle, beautiful piece of storytelling music – the themes and titles reflect on a passage from Richard Adams’ 1972 classic Watership Down.
