Cuneiform

Cuneiform Logo


Cuneiform is definitely one of the more adventurous progressive labels around giving voice to some amazing talent that would otherwise never see the light of day. When I asked Steve Feigenbaum for a little history on Cuneiform he told me:

Essentially, Cuneiform exists to present what I think are the most interesting musics in the "avant/new music" categories, with an emphasis on rock bands playing intricate, rehearsal intensive music. You will find a wide range of music here - from 20th century classical music, to jazz/improvised, to fusions of various sorts. You'll also find a large number of rock bands who are rock bands only because of their instrumentation. - Steve Feigenbaum

You'll find their latest releases below.

Richard Pinhas & Barry Cleveland [with Michael Manring & Celso Alberti]/Mu ....CD $16.99
Pinhas Tatsuya & Akita/Process and Reality ....CD $16.99

Richard Pinhas & Barry Cleveland [with Michael Manring & Celso Alberti]/Mu ....CD $16.99                     Pinhas Tatsuya & Akita/Process and Reality ....CD $16.99

Richard Pinhas, the founder of '70s legends Heldon is one of France's best known experimental musicians. He is a key figure in the development of rock fusing with electronic music.  Cuneiform is simultaneously releasing two new, very different albums by Richard in conjuction with a US tour. Mu is a collaboration between Richard and noted guitarist and writer Barry Cleveland who has worked with many other artists in the field of ambient and experimental guitar. Barry was also an editor at Guitar Player Magazine for over a decade. Michael Manring is best known for his many-year collaboration with the late guitar genius Michael Hedges, but he has also worked with with players like Wadada Leo Smith, Attention Deficit, Spastic Ink, Henry Kaiser, Will Ackerman, Holy Near a.o.  Celso Alberti is a Brazilian-born percussionist who has worked with many A-list musicians over the years, most recently working closely with Steve Winwood. This is a trancy, grooving work that is RIYL: Jon Hassell, King Crimson, Brian Eno, etc.  Process and Reality is a collaboration between Richard and two innovators and giants of the current Japanese experimental scene. Yoshida Tatsuya has been one of the most important musicians of the Japanese experimental scene for the last 35 years, spearheading at least a half dozen of that country's most important groups, including Ruins, Koeji Hyakkei, YBO2 and Korekyojinn.  Masami Akita, aka Merzbow, stands as probably the most important artist in noise music and has been so for nearly 40 years and hundreds of releases. From the beginning, his harsh sounds eschewed the anger often found in this music to reach a Zen state, a calm inside the storm. This is the first time these three musicians have all collaborated together.

Hugh Hopper & Alan Gowen/Two Rainbows Daily ....CD $16.99

Hugh Hopper & Alan Gowen/Two Rainbows Daily ....CD $16.99

Two Rainbows Daily is a reissue of a long out of print classic from 1980 from these two fine composers and insrumentalists (keyboards and bass). While rich in sound due to overdubs, this doesn't have a full band sound, and this rather stripped-down approach makes for an "intimate" release filled with crafty melodies and subtle tonal colors. Mastered directly off the master tapes it sounds terrific; finally! No vinyl crackle! As a bonus there is 20' of extra live material and excellent liner notes by Hugh, which tell the story of this disc. Absolutely a "Canterbury" classic.

 

 

National Health/Playtime ....CD $16.99

National Health/Playtime ....CD $16.99

Another out of print classic reissued by Cuneiform, this CD is the first National Health live album to ever be released. It is also the only recorded documentation of the Gowen ,Greaves, Miller, and Pyle version of the band. Recorded at two different shows in 1979 - including one show that features the addition of guest guitarist Alain Eckert [Art Zoyd] - the majority of the compositions on Playtime cannot be found on any other National Health recording. In addition, Playtime includes a 16 page booklet with liner notes by noted Canterbury expert Aymeric Leroy, which tells the story of the last period of National Health with Gowen. Illustrated with rare photos, interviews and comments with all surviving members of the band, this is a fantastic, unexpected, newly unearthed document 20 years later, of a much loved band.

 

 

Bent Knee/Say So ....CD $16.99

Bent Knee/Say So ....CD $16.99

Bent Knee is a genre-defying art-rock collective from Boston. Fiercely innovative, the band bridges the gap between the experimental and the familiar. They draw from an expansive sonic palette edged by the touchstones of heavy psych, baroque pop and the avant-garde. Their sound is new and their scoope is vast. Formed in 2009, the band - Courtney Swain (vocals/keyboards), Ben Levin (guitar/vocals), Chris Baum (violin, vocals), Jessica Kion (bass/vocals), Gavin Wallce-Ailsworth (drums) and Vince Welch (synth/sound design) - combines immense depth and musicality with enthralling melody and arrangement. Touring constantly and reaching new converts nightly, Bent Knee is high art for the masses.

 

 

Claudia Quintet/Super Petite ....CD $16.99

Claudia Quintet/Super Petite ....CD $16.99

Short doesn't necessarily mean simple. Drummer-composer John Hollenbeck acrobatically explores the dichotomy between brevity and complexity on Super Petite, the eighth release by the critically-acclaimed, proudly eccentric Claudia Quintet. The oxymoronic title of the new album, captures the essence of its ten new compositions, which pack all of the wit and virtuosity that listeners have come to expect from the Claudia Quintet into the time frame of radio-friendly pop songs. As always, Hollenbeck's uncategorizable music - which bridges the worlds of modern jazz and new music in surprising and inventive ways - is realized by Claudia's long standing line-up: clarinetist/tenor saxophonist Chris Speed, vibraphonist Matt Moran, bassist Drew Gress, and accordionist Red Wierenga. Over the course of 19 years and 8 albums, the band has forged an astounding chemistry and become expert at juggling mind-boggling dexterity with inviting emotion and spirit.The concept was both a personal challenge for Hollenbeck as a composer always dealing with a wealth of ideas, but also a reaction to a tendency in modern music toward the epic. "I'm feeling things in the opposite direction," the composer explains. "When tunes are longer, there tend to be moments when not a whole lot is happening. If you have a really short tune, the whole thing has to be compelling." Speaking of compelling, the release comes with a fat, 20 page color booklet, filled with unusual artwork

 

 

Deus Ex Machina/Devoto ....CD $16.99

Deus Ex Machina/Devoto ....CD $16.99

Devoto (`Devoted`) is the ninth album by Italy's Deus Ex Machina in a 30 year-long career. Founded in 1985 and bursting out of Bologna with their initial release in 1991, by the time they released their second, self-titled album in 1993, the group's line-up was exactly the same as it is today! Featuring the powerful and soaring vocals of Alberto Piras, the band is a unique blend of classic hard rock and avant-garde tendencies, having a big, heavy sound (not 'crunchy' but 'heavy') that is as equally influenced by Led Zeppelin as the Mahavishnu Orchestra. No one else sounds like Deus Ex Machina.

 

 

I.P.A./I Just Did Say Something ....CD $16.99

I.P.A./I Just Did Say Something ....CD $16.99

Maybe it's the region's boundless but stark natural beauty or its internationally envied social order, but whatever the cause Scandinavia has nurtured a particularly vivid jazz scene marked by a tantalizing balance of form and freedom. Over the past decade the quintet I.P.A. has come to embody the best of this volatile sensibility, which makes sense as the band draws its players from definitive Nordic ensembles such as Atomic, Motif, Ensemble Denada, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, and The Thing. This is I.P.A.'s fourth release and their first to be released outside of Scandinavia. The quintet's most exhilarating statement yet, it's the work of a band fully alive to its own power, while eagerly investigating new directions. I.P.A. is strongly influenced by the seminal 1960s work of Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman. Harmonically unfettered, rhythmically unpredictable and melodically unvarnished, the quintet thrives on live-wire interaction with rapidly intersecting lines that swoop and collide, disentangle and divide. "We have melodies, but not really structured melodies," says Nymo, one of the band's primary composers. "We're definitely influenced by Don Cherry. I see us as part of this Scandinavian jazz scene, but we're open to influences from all over." I.P.A.'s origins go back to 2007 when Nymo, Flaten and Johansen released their electrifying interpretation of Don Cherry's classic 1966 Blue Note album Complete Communion. Broo joined forces with the triumvirate the following year and I.P.A. was born. The quartet introduced itself on Bolage with two critically hailed albums, 2009's Lorenaand 2011's It's A Delicate Thing. By 2014's Bubble, vibes master Mattias Stahl had expanded the band to a quintet. "Adding Mattias really opens up the possibilities," Nymo says. "He's a fantastic player, and helped us expand the colors and how we interact within the band." While all committed to an array of bands and projects, the five musicians in I.P.A. have found kindred exploratory spirits in the band. With I Just Did Say Something the combo has staked a larger claim, coming close to capturing the full creative breadth of this all-star ensemble. "We really cover a lot of ground," Nymo says. "That's something we realized while making this record. This is what we sound like now, but we're already off in new directions."

 

 

Thumbscrew/Convallaria ....CD $16.99

Thumbscrew/Convallaria ....CD $16.99

Convallaria is the second release by Thumbscrew, a trio of major stars of the modern jazz scene. Thier first, self-titled release made a big splash saleswise and critically. Guitarist Mary Halvorson is one of the most recognizable players on her instrument today. She has a voluminous discography as a leader and sidewoman, and has established herself as an important voice in jazz. Bassist Michael Formanek has been an important, grounding force on the scene for over 30 years. In the last few years he has released three widely praised albums as composer/bandleader on the ECM label. Drummer Tomas Fujiwara grew up on Boston, studying with the legendary Alan Dawson before moving to New York where he has become an important presence on the current scene.

 

 

Rez Abbasi & Junction/Behind the Vibration ....CD $16.99

Rez Abbasi & Junction/Behind the Vibration ....CD $16.99

"Behind the Vibration is a collection of new music that seeks to answer the question: What might a modern jazz album sound like in the hands of contemporary musicians employing a breadth of influences and current technologies? More often than not, musicians I play with have developed a deep understanding of the jazz canon, yet also equally admire music vastly different than jazz. The members of Junction embody this epitome. Individually our present schedules include performing in a variety of settings from pop, heavy metal, electronica, Camatic, Indo-sub-Saharan African, qawwali, jazz and more. Junction is where it all meets. It is my most inclusive project to date in terms of engaging diverse musical influences and technology. For me, this is 'music of now.'" - Rez Abbasi

 

 

The Ed Palermo Big Band/One Child Left Behind ....CD $16.99

The Ed Palermo Big Band/One Child Left Behind ....CD $16.99

The Ed Palermo Big Band is led by alto saxist and arranger Ed Palermo; he has had his big band for 35 years and has had his band performing the music of Frank Zappa for nearly 25 years. The band tackled the music of Zappa, recognized as one of the great 20th century American composers, with grace, skill, humor and originality. The band is a 16 piece ensemble of five woodwind players, two trumpeters, three trombonists, two keyboardists, guitar, violin, bass and drums. One Child Left Behind is his fifth album featuring Zappa's compositions; you will also find originals and works by Los Lobos, Neil Young, Giorgio Moroder and Lieber & Stoller, all delivered up with Ed's sense of humor and the band's monster musicianship! The album is a combination of hard swinging, a la Count Basie, and is fiendishly complex. It all makes for a unique and very fun listen. Features guest vocals by Napoleon Murphy Brock and Candy Zappa (Frank's sister)!

 

 

Naima/Bye ....CD $16.99

Naima/Bye ....CD $16.99

Naima are a modern jazz trio from Valencia, Spain. Using acoustic piano and synthesizers, double bass and drums, they perform music that is jazz, but could also be considered 'post-jazz,' in that it is meant to appeal to a larger, wider and younger audience than only the jazz audience. They are concerned with group interaction and swing, but also with melody and the song. Bye is the group's fourth album and the first to be available outside of Spain. It features five original compositions as well as covers by Elliott Smith and Jaga Jazzist.

Gary Lucas' Fleischerei featuring Sarah Stiles/Music from Max Fleischer Cartoons ....CD $16.99

Next to Walt Disney, Max Fleischer is the best known cartoonist of the 20th century creating and contributing to American culture the one and only Betty Boop.  Fleischer Studios also brought the newspaper character Popeye the Sailor to (animated) life. Guitarist Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart, Jeff Buckley, Peter Hammill) has long been a fan of Fleishcher's work and has long wished to develop a band to present the music that was used in these cartoons. Along with Tony Award nominated music theater vocalist Sarah Stiles, who embodies both sophisticated and sexy Betty and her gawky, neurotic, loveable counterpart Olive Oyl, and the formation of Fleischerei, he has done exactly that. Also featured are Joe Fiedler - trombone; Jeff Lederer - reeds; Michael Bates - acoustic bass; Rob Garcia - drums.

Grammy award-winning guitarist Henry Kaiser is best known for his work with such well-known musicians as Jerry Garcia, Herbie Hancock, Wadada Leo Smith, Richard Thompson, and his 'world music' project with fellow guitarist David Lindley, 'A World Out Of Time.'   Guitarist Ray Russell is considered one of the earliest free jazz/noise guitarists.

Since then, he has established himself as a top studio musician, appearing on albums with Tiny Turner, David Bowie, Robert Plant and many others.   After 40 years, The Celestial Squid is Ray's return to his roots as an 'out' guitarist, along with Henry and eight additional musicians, including Michael Manring (Michael Hedges) and William Winnant (Sonic Youth)!

The Kandinsky Effect/Somnambulist ....CD $16.99

The Kandinsky Effect/Somnambulist ....CD $16.99

Founded in Paris in 2007, The Kandinsky Effect is a post-modern jazz trio, searching for new ways to work within the jazz idiom by blending the borders of jazz, rock, electronica, hip-hop and experimental sounds.  They are an accessible, modern jazz group featuring sax, bass, drums and laptops/electronics; jazz made for young listeners who are rock or alternative music fans.  Since releasing their Cuneiform debut, Synesthesia, in 2013, The Kandinsky Effect has expanded their audience with multiple tours, including trips to Europe, Canada, Asia, and several tours throughout the United States. The band's new, third album, Somnambulist, is the product of rehearsing and writing new material while on the road. It was recorded just south of Paris, France, in May, 2014 and brought back to New York for post-production and mixing.

Matching Mole/March ....CD $16.99

Matching Mole/March ....CD $16.99

An out of print Cuneiform classic has returned!  In 2001, Cuneiform released Smoke Signals, a collection of unreleased performances. The members of Matching Mole were so pleased with that album that when one of the members came across a forgotten live show on tape - identified simply as "March, 1972," they immediately contacted us, and March is the result. Recorded live in Europe in March of '72, shortly after Dave MacRae became the keyboardist, this includes the basic repertoire that the band would perform during their lifetime, with a few surprises thrown in. The sound is surprisingly superb for a live show of this vintage, and once again Tom Recchion has come up with a charming cover.  "Great sound, great artwork - so thanks once again." - Robert Wyatt

Miriodor/Avanti! ....CD $15.99

Miriodor/Avanti! ....CD $15.99

Over a 30 year career, Miriodor have produced music that is intricate, tuneful , challenging and filled with both fire and humor. Their albums are enjoyable and captivating new-music gems. As Goldmine magazine said, "Occupying a realm somewhat between the chamber rock of Univers Zero and the spry fusion of vintage Jean-Luc Ponty...Miriodor mostly just sounds like Miriodor...unique and forward looking."

Miriodor/Cobra Fakir ....CD $15.99
Miriodor/Cobra Fakir ....vinyl LP $29.99

Miriodor/Cobra Fakir ....CD $15.99

Over a nearly 35 year-long career, Miriodor have continuously produced music that is intricate, melodic,challenging and filled with both humor and fire.

"Occupying a realm somewhat between the chamber rock of Univers Zero and the spry fusion of vintage Jean-Luc Ponty...Miriodor mostly just sounds like Miriodor...unique and forward looking." - Goldmine.  "The music is both entertainingly accessible and startlingly inventive, filled with more sonic details than can be grasped in a single listen." - All Music Guide.  "Anyone with adventurous ears is sure to get a kick out of this venerable Quebecois quartet's music, which draws on nearly three decades of experience exploring the fringes of avant-pop instrumental music. Very cool." - CDHOTLIST.

Schnellertollermeier/X ....CD $16.99

Schnellertollermeier/X ....CD $16.99

Soft Machine/Spaced ....CD $16.99

Soft Machine/Spaced ....CD $16.99

A deleted Cuneiform classic is back!  Spaced is previously unreleased studio recordings recorded in early/mid 1969 by the "classic" Soft Machine trio line-up of Hugh Hopper [bass], Mike Ratledge [electric piano/organ] and Robert Wyatt [drums]. These heavily manipulated/ looped/etc. recordings were originally presented as the backdrop to a multi-media work entitled Spaced. After it's week-long performance, the tapes were forgotten for over two decades until rediscovered by Mike King. These recordings feature the band at their most radical, and while they would never again use the studio in such an extreme fashion, the work done here definitely influenced later works such as Third and Hugh's 1984. With liner notes by Hugh and Bob Woolford.

Soft Machine/Switzerland 1974 ....CD + DVD $24.99

Soft Machine/Switzerland 1974 ....CD + DVD $24.99

One of the most critically acclaimed, far-reaching and influential avant rock & jazz bands ever was Soft Machine. They were one of the very first groups to bring together jazz and rock, and fuse them into a single, creative music. The band released its studio albums on major labels, and played numerous shows both at home and abroad. Until they disbanded in the late 1970s, Soft Machine created groundbreaking and provocative music that stretched the outer limits of rock and of jazz.  In 1974, the group added a guitarist for the first time since their very earliest days. And not just 'a' guitarist but the now-legendary guitarist Allan Holdsworth, who made his initial reputation during his tenure with the group.  Also in the group at this time were Roy Babbington (electric bass), Karl Jenkins (oboe, soprano sax, electric piano), John Marshall (drums) and Mike Ratledge (electric piano, organ, synthesizer).  On July 4, 1974, the group played the Montreux Jazz Festival on a bill that featured a number of well-known jazz/rock outfits. Now, for the first time ever, these audio and video recordings have been licensed from the Montreux Jazz Festival and issued in this CD/DVD set, which features the earliest performance footage of Allan Holdsworth on the marketplace.

Sonar/Black Light ....CD $16.99

Sonar/Black Light ....CD $16.99

"Had MC Escher made music instead of drawing his famously impossible and perplexing perspectives, it would sound like Sonar." - Prog Magazine (UK) Sonar is an instrumental rock quartet consisting of two guitars, bass and drums. Their name stands for SONic ARchitecture, alluding to their intention of creating polymeric soundscapes and highly structured aural spaces. Recommended if you like King Crimson, Nik Bartsch's Ronin, Present, Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Thinking Plague/In this Life ....CD $16.99

Thinking Plague/In this Life ....CD $16.99

Thinking Plague has been releasing impossible to categorize albums to a devoted fan-base for over 30 years.  In this Life was the group's third album and was originally released in 1989. 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.

Robert Wyatt/'68 ....CD $15.99

Robert Wyatt/'68 ....CD $15.99

In September, 1968, UK's Soft Machine had just finished their second, exhaustive tour of the USA supporting the Jimi Hendrix Experience. At the conclusion of the tour, vocalist/drummer/multi-instrumentalist Robert Wyatt stayed, working on recordings in Hollywood and New York City.  Upon Robert's return to England to re-start the Soft Machine in December, 1968, these documents lay forgotten. Two of them were eventually found and issued, but half of these recordings were unreleased and thought lost forever... Now, for the first time, all four of the recordings Robert made in '68 are collected together and released!  This release is fully authorized by Robert and the liners include an in-depth interview with him.  Two of the demos are shorter songs and two are side-long tracks; both side-long tracks were later re-recorded by the Soft Machine, one on Volume II (1969) and one on Third (1970). These tracks serve as a template for the post-psychedelic Soft Machine's career as founders of European jazz/rock and the entire release is a precursor to Robert's post-band, solo career.
