Thinking Plague has been releasing impossible to categorize albums to a devoted fan-base for over 30 years. In This Life, originally released in 1989, was the group's 3rd album. It is probably their most popular release. It comes back into print for the first time in years in a newly remastered version overseen by the band and making its first-ever appearance on Cuneiform. Thinking Plague is a United States avant-garde progressive rock group founded in 1982 by guitarist/composer, Mike Johnson, and bass guitarist/drummer, Bob Drake. Based in Denver, Colorado, the band has been active off and on since 1982, taking on a number of musicians over the years. They have made six studio albums between 1984 and 2012, and released one live album recorded at NEARfest in 2000. Their music is a mix of rock, folk, jazz and 20th-century classical music. In spite of Johnson's dislike of the term, the band has often been categorized as a "RIO" band.

Though it contains material from as early as 1990, In Extremis mostly consists of recordings from 1996 to 1998. The music skirts the more challenging end of avant-prog, with good contributions from drummer David Kerman and vocalist Deborah Perry.

"Founded 1984 in New York, Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys recorded A Subtle Plague's first demo. (…) The brothers Simmersbach, Analucia DaSilva, Pat Ryan and changing drummers achieved wide notoriety as one of the best live bands in the U.S. underground (…) Their communal way of touring and devoted fans led to Germany's Rolling Stone magazine calling A Subtle Plague "the Grateful Dead of the '90s"…" ~wikipedia

Genre: Vocal Jazz

Although not released until 2000, the tracks on Eartha Kitt's THINKING JAZZ were recorded at a studio session in 1991 and a German live date in September, 1992, towards the end of Kitt's self-imposed European exile. This is one of Kitt's most straightforwardly jazz-oriented albums, with none of her usual pop and cabaret overtones. The five-piece combo playing behind her-clarinet and tenor saxophone plus rhythm section-is tight and economical, and the arrangements give each member room to stretch out without dissolving into extended jams. Kitt's spectacular voice remains front and center throughout, although the instrumental "God Bless the Child" that provides the link between the studio and live material shows that even without her contributions, this would be a swinging album.

Drake is a behind-the-scenes kind of guy who customarily plays a little bass and is otherwise a recording engineer, mixer, and producer. He has worked with Thinking Plague, the Science Group, and out-rock types like Chris Cutler and Fred Frith, who often appear on England's ReR Megacorp label.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. West coast meets Dutch jazz – in this sweet set that features Bob Cooper on tenor and Conte Candoli on trumpet – both musicians who rose to fame in the LA scene of the 50s, but who still stand plenty strong here with the trio of Rein DeGraaff in the 90s! Cooper and Candoli continued to play often over the years – even after both had lost the opportunity to record much as leaders – and the musicians are in fine form here, with strong backing from Rein's trio that also features Koos Serierse on bass and Erik Ineke on drums.

Frank Rosolino, one of the most fluent of the bop trombonists to emerge during the 1950s, is heard really stretching out on this live double-CD, recorded two years before his death. Originally, this was a four-song LP, but in this reissue, the set has been expanded to a 12-song double-CD. Rosolino is joined by Canada's best (guitarist Ed Bickert, bassist Don Thompson, and drummer Terry Clarke) for a variety of veteran jazz standards including "Sweet and Lovely," "I Thought About You," "I Should Care," and Charlie Parker's "Bluebird." Although the tempos are mostly slower, the music has its fiery moments and Rosolino is heard throughout in excellent form.
