EMA 4099 BAILEY, DEREK & MILO FINE SCALE POINTS ON THE FEVER CURVE 04/03/04 The first gig on Milo Fine's extended visit to London found him playing clarinets, drums and electronic keyboard in cohorts with Derek Bailey on electric guitar. They first worked together twenty years previously, but this was the first time they performed as a duo.
EMA 4038 BERESFORD/SMITH/COOMBES THREE & FOUR PULLOVERS 09/11/00 A trio concert by STEVE BERESFORD (toys & electronics), NIGEL COOMBES (violin & electronics) & ROGER SMITH (guitar) described by Beresford as "a cross between an SME tiny-elements-interlocking-thing and an AMM landscape." Plus excerpts from a quartet concert 3 years later with BERESFORD also playing piano & euphonium, COOMBES just on violin, SMITH continuing on guitar and TERRY DAY on percussion, alto saxophone, cello and mandolin.
EMA 4064 BERESFORD/THOMAS/WESTON 3 PIANOS 22/11/01 Three grand pianists on three grand pianos. The presence of three good pianos at Gateway Studio allows one to hear three of the best improvising pianists working together. Most of the music is three-way improvisation, but there are also three short duos, and three pieces with restricting rules.
EMA 4037 BERGER, KARL/EDWARD BLACKWELL JUST PLAY 09/11/00 Hard-swinging vibraphone and percussion Free Jazz duets based on compositions by Berger and Don Cherry. In contrast to these largely metallic sounds, there are also two African sounding improvisations on two instruments made from wood - a bala(fon) and an osi-drum.
EMA 4040 BIANCO, TONY/PAUL DUNMALL/ SIMON PICARD UTOMA TRIO 26/10/00 Three high-energy post-Coltrane improvisations featuring percussion and two tenor saxophones.

EMA 4104 BIANCO/LEIBMAN/MARINO LINE ISH 15/04/04 Drummer Tony Bianco set up this trio date to feature Dave Liebman and his regular bassist Tony Marino in a fiery free jazz setting. Liebman plays tenor and soprano saxes, piano and a wooden flute as well as writing some lines. There are also three short solo improvisations.
EMA 4096 BRADFORD, BOBBY LOVE'S DREAM -1973 02/10/03 Hard-swinging Free Jazz recorded in a club in Paris, featuring original tunes by the vastly under-rated BRADFORD (cornet) with TREVOR WATTS (alto sax), KENT CARTER (bass) & JOHN STEVENS (drums). Reissue of Emanem 3302 with extra material.
EMA 4103 BRAND & GUBERMAN BALLGAMES & CRAZY 15/04/04 Improvisations by the transatlantic duo of London based trombonist Gail Brand and the San Francisco based vocalist Morgan Guberman (best known as a double bassist in other contexts). Guberman's use of somewhat meaningless words and Brand's very vocal approach to her horn make for a very distinctive music.
EMA 4006 BRAXTON, ANTHONY/DEREK BAILEY FIRST DUO CONCERT 28/02/96 Their earliest meeting on record - the complete London (Wigmore Hall) concert (organised by Emanem).
EMA 4080 BURN, CHRIS -ENSEMBLE- HORIZONTALS WHITE 21/11/02 The whole of two totally improvised performances from London's Red Rose and Conway Hall with CHRIS BURN (piano & percussion), JOHN BUTCHER (soprano & tenor saxophones), MARK WASTELL (cello), JOHN RUSSELL (guitar) and MATT HUTCHINSON (synthesizer & electronics), plus RHODRI DAVIES (harp) at the Red Rose. A smaller Ensemble than on their three previous CDs, but sounding larger at times.
EMA 4056 BURN, CHRIS -ENSEMBLE- PLACE 1991 14/02/02 A concert performance by the eight-piece group, with JIM DENLEY (flutes), JOHN BUTCHER (saxophones), PHIL DURRANT (violin), STEVIE WISHART (violin & hurdy-gurdy), MARCIO MATTOS (cello), JOHN RUSSELL (guitar), MATT HUTCHINSON (synthesizer) and CHRIS BURN (piano & percussion). They interpret three scores by Burn, and one each by Butcher and Keith Rowe, as well as performing a free improvisation. EVAN PARKER is an added guest on one of the Burn pieces.
EMA 4063 BURN/BUTCHER/DAVIES/EDWARDS FIRST TWO GIGS 22/11/01 An improvising quartet featuring four of the finest and most innovative musicians, who have extended the ranges of their respective instruments - piano, saxophones, harp and double bass - into new uncharted territories. As well as having exceptional techniques, they are all virtuoso listeners, so that these first two performances as a quartet sound as if they have being working together for years.
EMA 4045 BUTCHER, JOHN FIXATIONS (14) 01/02/01 Butcher's third solo album finds him playing 14 solos in various part of the world - all in concert apart from two tracks in a renovated, disused railway station. Highly distinctive unaccompanied soprano and tenor saxophone improvisations.
EMA 4029 BUTCHER, JOHN/PHIL DURRANT/ JOHN RUSSELL SCENIC ROUTE 26/04/99 Most of two recent concert performances by this exceptional all acoustic saxophone / violin / guitar trio, featuring somewhat longer and sparser improvisations that on their previous issues.
EMA 4089 BUTCHER, JOHN/JOHN EDWARDS OPTIC 27/03/03 Two of the most adventurous musicians around today, John Butcher and John Edwards have been working as a very compatible duo for some years now. This CD contains concert performances from Brussels and Barcelona.
EMA 4049 BUTCHER/BAILEY/DAVIES VORTICES & ANGELS 03/05/01 Two very different duo concert performances both featuring saxophonist John Butcher: the first (38 minutes) at the Vortex with electric guitarist Derek Bailey; the second (25 minutes) in All Angels Church with harpist Rhodri Davies.
EMA 4033 CARTER, KENT/MAURER, ALBRECHT JUILLAGUET COLLECTION 04/11/99 Double bass and violin duets, mostly improvised, some based on original compositions.
EMA 4012 CARTER, JOHN/BOBBY BRADFORD TANDEM 2 04/11/96 All of two exceptional Worcester (Massachusetts) and Los Angeles concerts featuring clarinet & cornet duos & solos - improvisations on original compositions.
EMA 4011 CARTER, JOHN/BOBBY BRADFORD TANDEM 1 16/12/97 All of two exceptional Worcester (Massachusetts) and Los Angeles concerts featuring clarinet & cornet duos & solos - improvisations on original compositions.
EMA 4061 CARTER, KENT BEAUVAIS CATHEDRAL 25/04/02 The long-awaited reissue of KENT CARTER's highly-acclaimed first solo album. As well as some solo cello and double bass improvisations, there are some collages in which he plays nearly all the parts himself courtesy of over-dubbing techniques. Carter had previously been heard with the groups of Paul Bley and Steve Lacy (among others), but such work did not prepare one for the unique music heard in this collection. Three previously unissued items (including a one-man string quartet) have been added to this CD. Reissue of Emanem LP 3306 with extra material.
EMA 4105 CARTER, KENT -STRING TRIO The Willisau Suites KENT CARTER's String Trio, with CARLOS ZINGARO on violin, FRANÇOIS DRENO on viola and the leader on double bass, somehow managed to sound like a classical chamber trio, a jazz group, and a European folk band simultaneously. Their unique niche features magnificent improvisations framed by Carter's strong compositions. There are also two short duo improvisations, and two short pieces by a later trio with ALBRECHT MAURER on violin and EMMANUELLE ROCH on viola. Edited reissue of ITM 970077 with extra material.
EMA 4017 COOMBES, NIGEL/STEVE BERESFORD TWO TO TANGLE 16/12/97 Their 1979 duo debut was generally considered, by a handful of people, to be the most significant advance in violin & piano music for around 200 years. Here is a second mighty helping from recent studio & concert performances.
EMA 4034 COXHILL, LOL ALONE AND TOGETHER 04/11/99 Improvised unaccompanied soprano and sopranino saxophone solos of the usual high standard, plus duets with STEVIE WISHART (violin & hurdy gurdy) and MARCIO MATTOS (cello & electronics). All recorded in concert.
EMA 4052 COXHILL, LOL DIGSWELL DUETS 03/05/01 The 39 minute duet with SIMON EMMERSON is an early example of interactive saxophone and electronics, wherein Emmerson modifies Coxhill's sound, and Coxhill reacts accordingly, etc. The 34 minute duet with pianist VERYAN WESTON is an early example of their very compatible duo, which is still going strong. Reissue of Random Radar RRR 005 with extra material from the same sessions.
EMA 4086 COXHILL, LOL OUT TO LAUNCH 23/01/03 Two complete solo soprano saxophone concerts, from Chicago and London, show that Coxhill is as inventive as ever some four decades after his first solo performances. In between there is a 10-minute improvisation by an impromptu 13-piece orchestra.
EMA 4204 COXHILL, LOL SPECTRAL SOPRANO 24/01/02 2-CD: LOL COXHILL tenor saxophone, voice, PAT THOMAS keyboards, sampler, JOHN EDWARDS double bass, STEVE NOBLE percussion, KNUT AUFERMANN electronics, sampler, MICHAEL KOSMIDES theremins, LONDON IMPROVISERS ORCHESTRA
EMA 4021 COXHILL, LOL/WESTON,VERYAN BOUNDLESS 11/05/98 A fine sequence of shortish soprano saxophone and piano duos reflecting the moods of two exceptional improvisers on a Winter's day.
EMA 4074 COXHILL, LOL/WESTON,VERYAN Worms Organising Archdukes Extended concert recordings from Rotterdam and Brussels provide a contrast to their equally fine previous soprano saxophone & piano duo CD BOUNDLESS. There is also a short track on which Weston switches to chamber organ.
EMA 4097 COXHILL/MULLER/RUTHERFORD MILWAUKEE 2002 02/10/03 The day after their Empty Bottle appearances (Emanem 4082 & Emanem 4086), these three travelled to Milwaukee for a concert, that featured superb unaccompanied solos by Rutherford (trombone), Müller (double bass) & Coxhill (soprano sax), as well as two short duos and a trio.
EMA 4101 DUNMALL, PAUL/PAUL ROGERS AWARENESS RESPONSE 04/03/04 Dunmall and Rogers have performed together for years both as a duo and as part of larger groups, such as the quartet Mujician. The three improvisations feature Dunmall on border bagpipes, tenor and soprano saxophones respectively. This is their earliest duo recording on which Rogers uses his A.L.L. bass.
EMA 4094 EDWARDS, JOHN/MARK SANDERS NISUS DUETS 03/07/03 Edwards & Sanders have worked together since 1990 in various groups such as those lead by Veryan Weston, Evan Parker, Tony Bevan, Alan Wilkinson, Peter Brötzmann and Frode Gjerstad. In the process, they have become one of the most formidable and flexible bass & teams around. This is their first duo record.
EMA 4084 EICHENBERGER, MARKUS DOMINO CONCEPT FOR ORCHESTRA 23/01/03 Eichenberger directs the musicians to change what they are doing, but not what to. The result is an hour-long performance with many changes, and surprises. MARIANNE SCHUPPE & DOROTHEA SCHÜRCH (voices), CARLOS BAUMANN (trumpet), PAUL HUBWEBER (trombone), CARL LUDWIG HÜBSCH (tuba), MARKUS EICHENBERGER (clarinets), DIRK MARWEDEL (extended saxophones), HELMUT BIELER-WENDT (violin), CHARLOTTE HUG (viola), PETER K FREY & DANIEL STUDER (double basses), FRANK RÜHL (electric guitar) & IVANO TORRE (percussion).
EMA 4213 FINE, MILO IKABANA 28/10/04 2-CD
EMA 4091 GATHERING FOR JOHN STEVENS 22/05/03 The Gathering is an informal improvising session that has met in London once a week since 1991. For the 2002 freedom of the city festival, MAGGIE NICOLS assembled some of the past and present participants. This studio recording from two months later features a similar group of 25 musicians performing two extended improvisations that are typical of the weekly sessions, with their distinctive mixture of voices and instruments. Also included is a three-part tribute to John Stevens featuring interpretations of his pieces, with poetry superimposed.
EMA 4087 GJERSTAD, PRODE/DEREK BAILEY NEARLY A D 27/03/03 Ten years after their meeting on HELLO GOODBYE (Emanem 4065), Frode Gjerstad visited Derek Bailey's house and recorded some very different duets - clarinet with acoustic guitar, and alto saxophone with electric guitar.
EMA 4065 GJERSTAD/STEVENS/BAILEY HELLO GOODBYE 22/11/01 A trio that just performed three gigs on three consecutive days - the music on this CD coming from the third one. Stevens (percussion & mini-trumpet) had often worked with the other two in duos and larger groups, but this tour was the only time that guitarist Bailey and saxophonist Gjerstad worked together, and work together they do - very well in fact. All the pieces are trio improvisations, but the three duos do appear from time to time. Stevens played a (borrowed) standard drum kit, but played it with all the sensibility of his small SME one.
EMA 4070 GUY, BARRY/RILEY, HOWARD/ WACHSMANN, PHILIPP IMPROVISATIONS ARE FOREVER NOW 09/05/02 Two excellent studio sessions by the unusual trio of double bass, piano & violin (plus some electronics) that was a regular group in the late 1970s. Reissue of Vinyl VS 113 with extra material.
EMA 4057 HALLETT, SYLVIA WHITE FOG 14/02/02 Three aspects of this remarkable musician's work: Wheelsongs is a 36 minute cycle featuring four original songs appearing within an improvised setting created solely with bowed bicycle wheel and digital delays. There is also a violin and voice improvisation (without any electronics), and a tape collage soundtrack made for a dance film.
EMA 4041 HARADA, MASASHI -CONDANCTION ENSEMBLE ENTER THE CONTINENT 26/10/00 Eight and six piece ensembles conducted by Harada's dancing. Participants are GREG KELLEY (trumpet), TUCKER DULIN & CHRISTIAN PINCOCK (trombones), ERIC CARLSON (tuba), BHOB RAINEY (soprano saxophone), ALETA COLE (violin), DAN LEVIN (cello), MIKE BULLOCK (double bass) & PHIL TOMASIC (electric guitar).
EMA 4108 HARADA, MASASHI -CONDANCTION ENSEMBLE ENTERPRISING MASS OF CILIA 28/10/04 Following the critical success of Enter the Continent EMANEM 4041, Harada dance-conducts a somewhat larger group of (mainly) Boston-based musicians: GREG KELLEY (trumpet), BHOB RAINEY (soprano saxophone), ALETA COLE (violin), FREDERIC VIGER (viola), GLYNIS LOMON (cello), VIC RAWLINGS (cello & electronics), MIKE BULLOCK (double bass), JONATHAN VINCENT (accordion), JAMES COLEMAN (theremin) & TATSUYA NAKATANI (percussion).
EMA 4085 HUG, CHARLOTTE NEULAND 23/01/03 For her second solo album, Hug (pronounced 'hoog') concentrates on solo viola without any electronics in a series of pieces inspired by her recent visits to London. Her strong musical personality and original extended techniques ensure that this is a solo recital unlike any other.
EMA 4066 ISKRA 1903 BUZZ SOUNDTRACK 24/01/02 PAUL RUTHERFORD (trombone), DEREK BAILEY (guitar) & BARRY GUY (double bass) performing a soundtrack for a film. Somewhat more restrained and gentle than their live performances (as heard on CHAPTER ONE EMA 4301), but still very fine music.
EMA 4301 ISKRA 1903 CHAPTER ONE 09/03/00 3-CD
EMA 4051 ISKRA 1903 FRANKFURT 1991 03/05/01 A very fine concert by the trio of PAUL RUTHERFORD (trombone), PHILIPP WACHSMANN (violin & electronics) and BARRY GUY (amplified double bass). The first set comprises a 33 minutes piece - the second set includes one solo performance each.
EMA 4047 KRYONICS KRYONICS 05/04/01 An improvising string trio featuring ALEKS KOLKOWSKI and JON ROSE playing violins and various horned fiddles, and MATTHAIS BAUER playing double bass.
EMA 4004 LACEY, STEVE WEAL & WOE 16/12/97 Lacy at his most adventurous in his very first solo soprano saxophone concerts (recorded in Avignon). Unsurpassable improvisations on original compositions. Plus "THE WOE", his powerful anti-war suite performed by the Quintet (in Zurich) with STEVE POTTS, IRENE AEBI, KENT CARTER & OLIVER JOHNSON.
EMA 4042 LACY, STEVE HOOKY (1976) 26/10/00 Virtually the whole of the 1976 Montreal solo concert - one of his best - including the complete Tao cycle and several other pieces. Reissue of half of Quark LP 9998 with over 50 minutes of previously unissued material from the same concert.
EMA 4024 LACY, STEVE SAXOPHONE SPECIAL+ 15/04/04 Music for four saxophones (STEVE LACY, EVAN PARKER, STEVE POTTS & TREVOR WATTS) with guitar (DEREK BAILEY) & synthesiser (MICHEL WAISVISZ). Plus highlights from an earlier London concert by LACY, POTTS, BAILEY, KENT CARTER & JOHN STEVENS. Improvisations on original compositions.
EMA 4075 LINES In Australia MARTIN BLUME (percussion), JIM DENLEY (flutes & alto saxophone), AXEL DÖRNER (trumpet), MARCIO MATTOS (cello & electronics), PHILIPP WACHSMANN (violin & electronics). Their second CD finds this excellent quintet absorbing some of the differences of the other side of the world.
EMA 4109 LONBERG-HOLM, FRED Dialogs For his second solo CD, the Chicago-based musician adds small speakers, test amps, piezos and motors to his cello to make some remarkable improvised music. As Michael Zerang says in his notes: 'This is a solo recording, yet I hear an entire ensemble.'

EMA 4076 LOVENS, PAUL / PAUL HUBWEBER / JOHN EDWARDS PaPaJo Recorded in Bremen, this is the whole of the sixth concert of a six day, six concert tour. A very equalitarian example of trio improvising by Hubweber on trombone, Edwards on double bass, and Lovens on percussion & saw.
EMA 4043 LOWE, FRANK/EUGENE CHADBOURNE DON'T PUNK OUT 26/10/00 A unique set of tenor saxophone and guitar duets mainly based on original compositions, with a couple of free improvisations and some pieces by other musicians. Considered by some to be among the best work of both musicians. Solo additions feature three Lowe pieces performed on a collapsing guitar in 1979, and some saxophone recorded in 2000.
EMA 4079 LUNGE STRONG LANGUAGE 21/11/02 The second release by the improvising quartet comprising GAIL BRAND (trombone), PHIL DURRANT (electronics and acoustic violin), PAT THOMAS (electronics and acoustic piano) and MARK SANDERS (percussion). The whole of their superb 2002 Amsterdam Bimhuis concert is included, augmented by two studio tracks from 2000.
EMA 4060 MILO FINE FREE JAZZ ENSEMBLE KOI/KLOPS 14/02/02 Since the 1970s, this band (which, in spite of its name, is a free improvisation group) has proved that there's more to Minneapolis than the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices! Multi-instrument MILO FINE (who plays percussion, clarinets and piano among other things) is joined throughout the CD by long-term musical partner STEVE GNITKA (who plays amplified guitar). Excerpts from three recent concerts are heard - one featuring the duo, one a quartet with the addition of JASON SHAPIRO (piano & synthesizer) and NATHAN SMITH (double bass, guitar & bass clarinets), and one a trio with SCOTT NEWELL (tenor saxophone & voice) added.

EMA 4068 NICOLS, MAGGIE/KRAABEL, CAROLINE/ HUG, CHARLOTTE TRANSITIONS 07/03/02 A month after their amazing performance at the freedom of the city festival, this improvising trio returned to the Conway Hall to record some further distinctive music. Three strong individuals - Nicols (voice), Kraabel (alto saxophone & voice) and Hug (viola) - combine to make an exceptional trio.
EMA 4055 PARKER, EVAN AYES HAVE IT 14/02/02 Two performances by one-off groups, both featuring EVAN PARKER (saxophones) and PAUL ROGERS (double bass). There is a 1983 trio studio recording with percussionist JAMIE MUIR, and a 1991 quartet gig with percussionist MARK SANDERS and visiting trombonist WOLTER WIERBOS. Both sessions are quite unlike anything else in the Parker canon.
EMA 4035 PARKER, EVAN FOXES FOX 04/11/99 Studio recordings with STEVE BERESFORD (piano), JOHN EDWARDS (double bass) & LOUIS MOHOLO (percussion). Extended quartet performances plus short duos and trios.

EMA 4022 PARKER/GUY/LYTTON AT THE VORTEX 11/05/98 The whole of a London club date comprising two extended exuberant improvisations, making it very different to their previous releases.
EMA 4102 PEOPLE BAND PEOPLE BAND (1968) An expanded reissue of the only published recording by one of the pioneering free improvisation groups. The People Band took a much more 'anything goes' approach than their contemporaries, so they covered a lot of ground from chamber-esque music and free jazz to free improvisation and conductions. Featuring Mel Davis, Terry Day, Lyn Dobson, Eddie Edem, Tony Edwards, Mike Figgis, Frank Flowers, Russell Hardy, Terry Holman & George Khan. Reissue of Transatlantic TRA 214 with extra material.

EMA 4054 RILEY, HOWARD -TRIO- OVERGROUND 14/02/02 Graphic scores interpreted by pianist Riley with BARRY GUY on amplified bass and TONY OXLEY on percussion and electronics. Recorded a year or two after "Synopsis", these two sessions reveal further developments, ending up with all three musicians using electronics. As well as three trio performances, there is also a Riley/Oxley duet, and an overdubbed two-piano piece.
EMA 4044 RILEY, HOWARD -TRIO- SYNOPSIS 26/10/00 Graphic scores interpreted by pianist Riley with BARRY GUY on amplified basses and TONY OXLEY on percussion and electronics. Perhaps the best recorded example of this exploratory trio that lasted for about six years. Reissue of Incus LP 13 with extra material from the same session.
EMA 4088 RILEY/TILBURY/TIPPETT ANOTHER PART OF THE STORY 27/03/03 Another three grand pianists on three grand pianos. Howard Riley and Keith Tippett have recorded several piano duos in the past, but the addition of John Tilbury coming from another background gives these eight trio improvisations a unique flavour.
EMA 4078 ROGERS, PAUL Listen The whole of Rogers' sensational double bass solo set at the 1999 Le Mans festival, plus an equally fine 19-minute performance recorded 10 years earlier in a London pub.

EMA 4058 RUSSELL, JOHN/ROGER TURNER SECOND SKY 14/02/02 A second helping of adventurous acoustic guitar & percussion improvisations by two of the finest musicians around (see also "Birthdays"). A remarkable range of sounds without any amplification or other electronics. Even though they played their first duo gig in 1978, they still keep coming up with incredibly fresh and inventive music.
EMA 4036 RUSSELL, JOHN/MAARTEN ALTENA/ TERRY DAY FAIRLY YOUNG BEAN 04/11/99 Acoustic guitar, cello or double bass, & percussion trio improvisations - intended for release as the third CAW LP, that never happened. A complete studio session featuring unique music.
EMA 4106 RUSSELL, JOHN/UTE VÖLKER/ MATHIEU WERCHOWSKI Three Planets A very fine acoustic (guitar, accordion and violin) improvising trio, made up of three musicians of three different ages from three different countries. Put together by a promoter for a French festival in 2001, they related so well, that they have continued to get together, whenever possible, to continue to make great music.
EMA 4082 RUTHERFORD, PAUL CHICAGO 2002 21/11/02 Rutherford's appearance at the Empty Bottle Festival was his first visit to America apart from two previous tours in orchestras. His 31 minute trombone solo shows him still to be at the top of his game. The following day he was asked to organise a septet with JEB BISHOP (trombone), LOL COXHILL (soprano saxophone), MATS GUSTAFSSON (tenor saxophone), FRED LONBERG-HOLM (cello & electronics), KENT KESSLER (double bass) and KJELL NORDESON (percussion). They performed a concerto featuring Coxhill and a free improvisation.

EMA 4107 RUTHERFORD, PAUL GHEIM-LIVE AT BRACKNELL 1983 08/07/04 A short-lived improvising trio featuring the trombonist with PAUL ROGERS (double bass) and NIGEL MORRIS (drums), that the leader put together to explore more free jazz-like areas than usual. Rutherford and Rogers play to their expected very high standards (even though it was one of the bassist's earliest recordings), while Morris shows why he is missed so much since he quit this music. The whole of their Bracknell Jazz Festival set is included along with some previously unissued studio recordings. Reissue of Ogun cassette OGC531 with extra material.
EMA 4072 RUTHERFORD, PAUL TROMBOLENIUM 09/05/02 A collection of adventurous trombone solos recorded over nine years in four different spaces - two club rooms (one very dry), an Italian jazz festival, and a very resonant church.
EMA 4018 RUTHERFORD, PAUL/ISKRA 1912 SEQUENCES 72 & 73 16/12/97 Two of the finest extended compositions for improvisers - the only published examples of Rutherford's work in that idiom - featuring MAGGIE NICOLS & NORMA WINSTONE (voices), KENNY WHEELER (trumpet), MALCOLM GRIFFITHS, PAUL NIEMAN & GEOFF PERKINS (trombones), DICK HART (tuba), DAVE WHITE (clarinets and saxophones), EVAN PARKER (saxophones), HOWARD RILEY (piano), BARRY GUY (bass), plus TREVOR WATTS (saxophones) in 1972, and plus DEREK BAILEY (guitar) & TONY OXLEY (electronics) in 1973 - all conducted by the composer. Also included is a 4 minute trombone solo by Rutherford from a 1974 concert.
EMA 4007 RUTHERFORD, PAUL/P. ROGERS ROGUES 28/02/96 A sensational concert of trombone & double bass duos & solos by two of the greatest exponents of their respective instruments.
EMA 4098 SHARP, ELLIOTT VELOCITY OF HUE 02/10/03 A sequence of 14 very varied solo acoustic guitar improvisations, some augmented by an e-bow used to obtain sustained notes. Marc Ribot writes: "The material Elliott works with on this CD follows his focus of the last 30+ years: composition and improvisation inspired by the nature of the guitar itself filtered through a love of country blues guitar and Central Asian musics."
EMA 4059 SMITH, IAN DAYBREAK 23/05/02 For his second CD as leader, IAN SMITH has put together a group with a most unusual instrumentation. There is the brass trio of himself on flügelhorn and trumpet, GAIL BRAND on trombone, and OREN MARSHALL on tuba - three younger improvisers who have already made quite an impression on the scene. Also present are DEREK BAILEY on amplified guitar, and VERYAN WESTON exclusively on chamber organ. Some of the 14 improvisations are by the quintet, however most feature sub-groupings. A different take on the London improvising scene.
EMA 4032 SMITH, ROGER EXTENDED PLAYS (1993-7) 31/05/99 Mostly extended solo acoustic guitar improvisations to complement the mainly short items on his highly acclaimed previous CD (EMA 4014). Also a duet with flautist NEIL METCALFE.
EMA 4073 SMITH, ROGER GREEN WOOD 09/05/02 Another superb collection of digital home recordings of solo acoustic guitar by this woefully neglected master.
EMA 4083 SMITH, ROGER SPANISH GUITAR 21/11/02 The long awaited reissue of Smith's 1980 LP which finds his distinctive acoustic guitar improvising fully formed.

EMA 4014 SMITH, ROGER UNEXPECTED TURNS 04/11/96 Stunning solo acoustic guitar improvisations (recorded digitally) by one of the unsung masters, who made his previous highly acclaimed solo record much too long ago in 1980.

EMA 4053 SPONTANEOUS MUSIC ENSEMBLE CHALLENGE 12/07/01 The long overdue reissue - the first since 1966! - of the first SME LP reveals their free jazz roots with only hints of what was to come. KENNY WHEELER (flugelhorn), PAUL RUTHERFORD (trombone), TREVOR WATTS (alto sax), BRUCE CALE (double bass) and JOHN STEVENS (drums) improvise on pieces by Rutherford, Stevens & Watts. (JEFF CLYNE replaces Cale on a couple of tracks.)

EMA 4020 SPONTANEOUS MUSIC ENSEMBLE Withdrawal Transitional sextet and septet performances quite unlike anything before or since, featuring JOHN STEVENS, TREVOR WATTS, BARRY GUY, EVAN PARKER, PAUL RUTHERFORD, KENNY WHEELER and, in 1967, DEREK BAILEY.

EMA 4039 SPONTANEOUS MUSIC ORCHESTRA MOUTHPIECE 31/12/99 Outrageous sounds produced by a workshop orchestra directed by JOHN STEVENS - an SME-type improvisation; instrumental & vocal drones; a mechanically rhythmic yet unpredictable piece; and an all-out improvisation featuring non-vocal mouth sounds, vocal sounds & instruments.
EMA 4062 SPONTANEOUS MUSIC ORCHESTRA PLUS EQUALS (1974-1975) 14/02/02 This reissue features what is perhaps the pinnacle of JOHN STEVENS' attempts to make music with a large (21 strong) group made up of both experienced improvisers (including EVAN PARKER & TREVOR WATTS) and workshop musicians. This 40 minute piece starts off with just the 11 workshop musicians for a few minutes, then everyone joins in for a long mainly sustained section, before ending with an all-out improvisation. Also included is a previously unissued 20 minute piece performed a year earlier by a large group with unknown personnel. Reissue of A LP 003 with extra material.
EMA 4093 STABBINS, LARRY MONADIC 03/07/03 A sequence of improvised soprano & tenor saxophone solos featuring a unique fusion of high energy, austerity and sublime melody. This is Stabbins' first solo album even though he first played solos in public over 30 years ago.

EMA 4092 TOMLINSON/BERESFORD/TURNER TRAP STREET 22/05/03 A studio session of trio improvisations, featuring a rare opportunity to hear trombonist Tomlinson with Beresford using electronics & toys and Turner on percussion.

EMA 4069 WATTS, TREVOR/VERYAN WESTON 6 DIALOGUES 09/05/02 Watts' first free improvisation record in around 25 years finds him playing soprano & alto saxophones with Weston on piano. Six superlative unedited duets recorded at Gateway Studio.
EMA 4048 WESTON, VERYAN/CAROLINE KRAABEL FIVE SHADOWS 05/04/01 An improvising duo on tour visiting five places in England. Weston's thoughtful yet emotional piano combined with Kraabel's remarkable rapid alternation between alto saxophone and voice, result in some radical duets.
EMA 4028 WESTON, VERYAN/JOHN EDWARDS/ MARK SANDERS MERCURY CONCERT 26/04/99 The whole of a superb concert - proof that there is still plenty of life and freshness to be found in the all acoustic piano / double bass / percussion format. Unlike any other such group, absorbing influences as diverse as Bela Bartok, Paul Bley, Conlan Nancarrow and Cecil Taylor.
EMA 4095 WESTON, VERYAN TESSELATIONS FOR LUTHEAL PIANO 03/07/03 A concert performance using a very rare Luthéal piano. The composer/improviser writes: "Visual interlocking symmetries and geometric shapes are transferred to the audible world of rhythm and counterpoint, with the spirit and energy of jazz, improvisation and folk music always at the heart of the performance. The piece contains a sequence of 52 closely linked pentatonic scales. Each scale has two pre-established areas in which ideas for improvisations can be explored and developed, and because the piece is continuous, the player and listeners take part in a journey that lasts about one hour."
EMA 4067 WREN/STABBINS/RILEY/SANDERS FOUR IN THE AFTERNOON 24/01/02 A fine improvising quartet convened by the exceptional bass player Tony Wren, with the austere saxophonist Larry Stabbins appearing on record after a gap of too many years, pianist Howard Riley proving that he is still a master of free group playing, and drummer Mark Sanders showing why he is so much in demand.
