A short-lived collaboration between keyboardist Roger Eno, guitarist Bill Nelson, and oboist/saxophonist Kate St. John, Channel Light Vessel is more than a new age supergroup. Perhaps it's the influence of St. John (a key member of the underrated Dream Academy), but this is the most pop-oriented album Nelson's been involved with since his early-'80s run of pre-ambient solo records. Some tracks have vocals by Nelson and/or St. John (the opening duet, "Testify," is downright catchy), but even the instrumentals have recognizable melodies and easy-to-grasp structures. Eno's contributions are about evenly split between piano and synthesizers, and his playing is typically excellent; though often overshadowed by his more famous and innovative older brother Brian, Roger is a notable talent in his own right…

Part of Björk's Live DVD series, Vessel presents live performances and short films from her Debut-era material, as directed by Stephane Sednouai, who also shot her video for "Venus as a Boy." The disc begins with an impressionistic mix of performances and interviews with Björk that seem a little precious nearly a decade on, especially considering how much her work and persona have grown since 1994…

EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 1.43GB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz

This six-CD set, with recordings from 1972 to 1984, includes the albums Conception Vessel, Tribute, Dance, Le Voyage, Psalm and It Should’ve Happened A Long Time Ago. Paul Motian’s innovative drumming with the great trios of Bill Evans and Paul Bley had already assured him of a place in jazz’s history books, but Motian had not considered life as a bandleader until ECM proposed a recording session under his own name. “Conception Vessel” opened floodgates of creativity. Through these recordings we hear not only the evolution of several outstanding Motian ensembles and the birth of the enduring Motian/Frisell/Lovano trio, but also the growth of confidence of a unique jazz composer. In Paul’s music, memories of Turkish and Armenian melodies he had heard as a child were filtered through a love of jazz.

The gathering of this trio in February of 2000 guaranteed little except that they had demonstrated ably – on Nothing Ever Was Anyway: The Music of Annette Peacock – the ability to play together almost symbiotically. This follow-up attempts to extend the trio's reach across Peacock's music and into the terrain of the trio as an entity in and of itself. That said, not all the pieces here are new; in fact, some of them are decades old – Marilyn Crispell's "Rounds" is from 1981, Gary Peacock's "Voices of the Past" and "December Greenwings" are both from the early '80s, and Paul Motian's "Conception Vessel/Circle Dance" is from the early '70s. The trio brings to these vintage pieces not only new eyes, but the freshness of this relationship and the willingness to reinvent them.

Genre: jazz, cool | RAR 5% Rec. | Label: Mosaic / Blue Note | CAT # MS-010 | 2004

This excellent 3-CD set collects two 10" albums by Shank and 4 12" albums co-led by Shank and Cooper, all for the Pacific Jazz/World Pacific labels between 1954-58. The West Coast cool school was at its height at this time, and both Bud Shank and Bob Cooper were in the thick of it. The first disc gets off to a rousing start with the marvelously swinging VALVE IN HEAD from 1954, with Bud playing fluid alto sax. He's joined by three valve trombone players (Bob Enevoldsen, Stu Williamson, and the ringer Maynard Ferguson) on this tune and for the first half of the disc, an interesting concept. The second half finds him with Coop at Cal Tech in 1959. Count Basie's THE KING gets a rousing airing, and there's a nicely done ballad medley.

This CD is the soundtrack to Drawing Restraint 9, a film by Matthew Barney with music and score composed by Bjork. Representing the 1st creative collaboration of 2 of the most protean, dynamic forces in music and fine art, this CD is a captivating and engrossing visual and sonic experience. The soundtrack primarily orients itself around the traditional music of Japan. Collaborations with electronic producers including Mark Bell, Valgeir Sigursson, and Leila, plus a guest appearance from Will Oldham, provide a counterpoint to the ancient instruments and compositions. The CD side includes the complete soundtrack.
An unconventional and somewhat challenging soundtrack to the work of a singularly strange filmmaker, Bjork's score for her partner Matthew Barney's DRAWING RESTRAINT 9 takes the Icelandic performer's already adventurous aesthetic to new extremes While a few tracks featuring Bjork (or, in the case of "Gratitude," Will Oldham) on vocals vaguely resemble her more pop-friendly outings, much of this album is steeped in avant-garde atmospherics that include lilting harp passages (the aforementioned "Gratitude"), ominous brass interludes ("Hunter Vessel"), and even haunting Japanese Noh singing ("Holographic Entrypoint"). Although DRAWING RESTRAINT 9 may perplex some listeners, those patient enough to follow Bjork down almost any path will find plenty to appreciate here.
