Alex Cline Ensemble - "Montsalvat"
"chamber music which lies somewhere between modern classical and new
jazz, the rigour of composition and the fluency of improvisation, with added
'ethnic' elements...It's terribly beautiful."|
Gauthier, Stinson - "Right of Violet"$15.00

ensemble and solo development. Most of the material originates with group

Continuum - "Passages" $13.98
"This band injects the finer elements of fusion with traditional jazz
etiquette and methodologies along with a sharp, rugged edge! Overall, the
musicians impress with a strong and thoroughly unified sense of direction
intermingled with noteworthy compositions and sterling ensemble work. If
you found yourself getting a bit bored with the existing contempo-fusion
scene, then you might want to give Passages an audition as this band
elevates applied concepts to lofty heights while providing a few thrills
along the way."
Al Garcia - "Make It So"
"Impeccable bass, soaring guitar, lush synth tones, ethnic
percussion, and tasty drumming can all be found on Al Garcia's solo release
Make It So. Al Garcia is a master bassist, and this is the best CD I have
heard in quite a while... Ladies and Gentlemen, I am stunned. I cannot say
enough good things about this CD. Buy it. Now!""
Quarteto Nuevo - "El Musico"$13.98
"Quarteto Nuevo combine the rhythmic traditions and sophistication of the Near,
Middle and Far East with the harmonic richness of the West, with lyrical
melodies from both to make a truly unique music ..... Fluid with diverse forms
and substance from various traditions - not bound by any......"
