Die Like A Dog Quartet / Aoyama Crows / Vinyl LP / Jazzwerkstatt / JW10060
The fourth and last album by Peter Brotzmann's fiercesome Die Like A Dog quartet, originally released on CD by FMP and released here for the first time on vinyl. The chemistry Brotzmann, Parker and Drake have as a trio is significantly altered when they are joined by Toshinori Kondo to form Die Like a Dog Quartet. Kondo's electronically altered trumpet adds a surreal iridescence to the molten energy the trio achieves on its own. On Aoyama Crows, recorded at the 1999 Total Music Meeting in Berlin, Kondo occasionally lends the proceedings a gritty '70s-vintage Milesian flavor; but far more often than not, Kondo's ricocheting smears and blasts have no jazz antecedent whatsoever. Conversely, Kondo's presence tends to prod Brotzmann toward mournful chant and work-song-related thematic fragments that countervail the infinite skittering of Kondo's digitally delayed textures, which is the case deep in this gripping set. BILL SHOEMAKER / JAZZ TIMES. 180g audiophile vinyl in gatefold sleeve.

Charles Gayle, William Parker, Rashied Ali / Touchin' On Trane / Vinyl LP / Jazzwerkstatt / JW10024
"This is Charles Gayle's most accessible work. Gayle's mastery of free jazz is blended with a more traditional compositional style of jazz on this disc. Touchin' on Trane is composed of five original songs, and even includes ex-Coltrane drummer Rashied Ali. As the title insists, Coltrane is the influence for the music on this disc. The influence ranges from the upbeat tempo of "Giant Steps" in "Part A," while "Part D" is reminiscent of Coltrane's "Live in Japan" performances. Gayle, bassist William Parker, and Ali don't copy Coltrane, but rather expand on his accomplishments. Without covering any songs, Touchin' on Trane is the greatest John Coltrane tribute album."-Brian Flota, All Music."
