Huge Arvo Part fan here. :dance:

In a similar vein, for those quiet moments.
Recently I have been listening a lot to:

Max Richter: Exiles
Johann Johannsson: Fordlandia
Olafur Arnalds: Another Happy Day


All highly recommended. :music-listening:

Barbara Thompson's Paraphernalia 'Nightwatch' (1984)

Image

Nostalgia trip. In the mid-80's me and a few mates would drive into Leeds at the weekend and see Jazz groups that were performing in a couple of clubs, amongst others: Bill Bruford's Earthworks, Ian Carr's Nucleus and Barbara Thompson's Paraphernalia.

My current mood of melodic/jazzy has led me back to all three of these acts, not least due to the Colosseum / Jon Hiseman / Allan Holdsworth connection. Drummer Hiseman was the husband of the late Barbara T. and gave a solid backbone to the band.

The Nightwatch LP is a reissue of 'Pure Fantasy' which had just been released when I saw her. Stellar playing by all concerned and overall a sound that has weathered the years well.

Barbara's best-known work is the haunting soundtrack to 'A Touch of Frost' but the Paraphernalia group was capable of kicking serious ass with style.

Damn hard to find but I managed to pick up a stack of her earlier CD's from Germany on eBay.

Birth Control 'Hoodoo Man' (1972)

Image

Quite possibly the ugliest, most tasteless album cover I have ever seen. Fortunately the music is of better quality.

A long-running formation from the German Krautrock movement, Birth Control are solid and tight here on their second LP with a keyboard-driven sound that is not dissimilar to the likes of Greenslade and Uriah Heep.

Groovy. :dance:
