1 - AYLER, ALBERT -QUARTET- - GHOSTS - (CD) 
SKOKIAAN


This 1965 album by free jazz master Albert Ayler and his quartet is one of the classics of their style and fetches up to 150,00 Euros for a very good copy among collectors. I have to admit that this record contains some of the most intriguing and wicked music I ever experienced. And I say that from the point of view of a John Coltrane aficionado. Well, Ayler and his mates Don Cherry on trumpet, Sonny Murray on drums and Gary Peacock on bass guitar are definitely on par with the before mentioned god of free jazz and others like Ornette Coleman. If you listen to this album from the pop music perspective you may find only screeching and overblown saxes and some non structured fiddling on drums and bass so that it's far different than the average mainstream. But if you have a fondness for soundscapes, improvisations and music that creates more of an atmosphere rather than fluffy melodies, this is just yours. We talk about a 1964 live session in a Copenhagen studio. From time to time Ayler and his band start with straight melody lines and soon let it all run free before partly returning to recognizable and memorable melodies. In this case I speak about the title track and at least Ayler returning to play some sweet and swinging sax harmonies while drums and bass still rumble and blast completely improvised lines in the back. The composition named ‚zVibrations‚o is another of these outbursts of insanity. Ayler and Cherry duel each other who might be the most free and twisted player. Murray pounds the kettles and cymbals like a maniac and Peacock joins in on standing bass. It is an ongoing rumbling and definitely strange but if you let it take you away, you will be completely enchanted. Free jazz fanatics will surely love this to deaf. For fans of Coltrane and Coleman a must have.

2 - GARVARENTZ, GEORGES - PANIC BUTTON - (CD) 
SKOKIAAN


The mastermind behind this album can be seen as a luminary in the field of movie soundtracks especially for the 60s and 70s while his career lasted until the early 90s up to his untimely death. "Panic Button" is the third album of its kind from his hands composed for an Italian low budget comedy film released in 1964 and originals in good condition may fetch up to 200,00 Euros today. The most interesting fact about the movie is the participation of cult actress Jayne Mansfield who also was part of the inner circle of Mr. Anton Lavey in the 60s. The music on the other side is a colorful trip through different styles from Italian traditional music to lush orchestral baroque music with most of the tunes being laid down by a well ‚" rehearsed big band. The background of this album is obviously big band swing. From here Garvarentz explores the more light footed corners of this genre and the result is a breathtaking joy. The melodies bring images of crowded market places and nifty street restaurants in Italian cities to your mind. The performances have the right amount of steam and passion to drag you from your seat, dance and sing along these sunny harmonies. And the pieces themselves are perfectly placed with high energetic moments and gentle parts following each other to sustain the attention of the listener and underline the different scenes of the movie in an ideal way. If you love the old movie scores from the early 60s with this abundant big band orchestration and a hip shaking groove to the tunes with the exception of a few parts that set you into a hushed mood you will really enjoy this beautiful piece of music. It is all about fun and felicity and a deeper feeling to accompanies the compositions. A masterpiece!
