Live at the Baked Potato
Review by Gary Hill
This is a new live album recorded at a Los Angeles show in 2019. The instrumental music here has a jam band vibe throughout a lot of it, but it is also quite jazzy and decidedly prog.

NDR Jazz Workshop, Germany, May 17, 1973
Review by Gary Hill

This awesome set is composed of a CD and DVD. They feature much of the same material.

Spaced
Review by Gary Hill
The music on this CD is incredibly hard to describe or categorize. Certainly ambient space music would be applicable to some of this.

This is a killer collection of music. It's a great way to sample a lot of fairly obscure acts without having to commit to a full album by any of them.

Beppe Crovella - What’s Rattlin’ on the Moon
Review by Gary Hill

This CD is fully instrumental and for the most part is Crovella’s interpretations of Soft Machine music. Much of this is nearly RIO in nature.
