"Synthesizers in Space", Shawn Lee mixes exotica with psychedelic rock for good effect, the music is not as cheezy as the title would suggest.

thanks Embarrassed

this new Stanko album revitalize my interest to his music

I've seen him life ten years ago at MOL Jazz Fest in Budapest - it was a "German style" open air event not too far from city's center,but in industrial are close to Danube's(Dunau) coast, long but not wide peace of old parking with railroad warehouses around. With long tables and people walking around during concert,eating roasted dark bread with garlic and drinking bear from plastic cups Confused

Concert opener was Esperanza Spalding, still rising new talent (she will receive Grammy some month later). So - even in this freaky (for his music) environment Stanko sounded excellent, kind of alien  - his trumpet soloing flow over these eaters and drinkers...

I like his very early avant-garde albums and some pre-ECM fusion albums (he did it great!), but only smaller part of ECM releases stick with me: too often he's too melancholic,too lifeless and too chamber(read - non-jazzy) there.  Or - just boringEmbarrassed

anyway - started to re-listen his albums, probably will come with more reviews

I know you have a lot of his music as well Wink
[/QUOTE]I like his ECM stuff but only up to "Soul OF Things",  with the release of "Suspended Night", "Lontano" he lost me. I have not bought one since. The one you reviewed recently "Polin" sounds interesting all the same.

Outtakes from their last album "Still Smiling", John. It came out for record day or vinyl day, (whatever they call it) last year. Has two versions of "Crimson and Clover" one German, one English, plus three of their own songs. Pretty good for Outtakes. "Crimson and Clover" is okay but the others are better.

All of them excepting "Unchained Melody" ( will be soon) are Standards. Produced by Booker T. I wore my cassette out by 1980.

I should probably get that one some day, the problem is, I may already own it. I have a lot of records that are still not sorted through from massive thrift store and garage sale purchases, that one used to show up in thrift stores occasionally, probably not anymore.

You all may laugh but it taught me quite a few Standards that I did not know back then, between Pink Floyd and Bruce Springsteen in the old car. lol

^ I've been checking it out, thats really nice music. I hear the Afro Cuban influence, but I would tag that album as World Fusion due to the other styles present, even garage rock, ha.
His comp albums called Serie Sangomar Vol 1 and 2 are more straight up Afro Cuban, and will be tagged that way, eventually.
