This is the much admired, somewhat groovy and extremely experimental Messe Pour Le Temps Present from French composer Pierre Henry - one of the pioneers of the music concrete movement. Recorded in 1967, Messe Pour Le Temps Present was originally scored for a Maurice Bejart ballet, Henry being an ardent admirer of the French choreographers work. Messe Pour Le Temps Present was one of a handful of collaborations with Bejart and Pierre Henry even travelled the world as sound engineer with Bejart's group.

No Secrets In The Family ‎– Kleinzeit (1992, CD, Switzerland)


With this RIO-production No Secrets in the Family display its musicality and ability to move within styles, technics and artistic expression without falling into the fashionable fusion-crossover en vogue. No just rock or jazz or funk, moreover these 4 musicians build songs full with breaks, stumbling grooves and dynamics which will simply open your ears (and eyes). From Recommended Records Switserland.

Alain Meunier ‎– Voyage Aux Fonds De La Mer (1979, LP, France)


Click to view larger image
Really amazing sounds from Alain Meunier – one of the few artists we know who can blend acoustic guitar and electronics with effortless ease – and create his own music with a very unusual vibe! The electronics dominate the record, as Meunier plays a variety of keyboards throughout – but the use of guitar also humanizes the music, and seems to balance its own progressions with more cosmic elements that come from the deft fingers of Alain! Some tunes evoke spacier territory of the German scene, but others have a more poetic vibe, especially when the guitar comes into play – and the whole thing is instrumental, with titles that include "Ballade", "Aplysia Depilans", "Promenade Avec Les Poissons", "Les Epaves", and "Descente Dans Ce Monde Inconnu" DustyGroove

Robert Webb ‎– Liquorish Allsorts (2014, CD, England)

Risultati immagini per Robert Webb ‎Liquorice Allsorts
First solo album by the keyboard player of the legendary progressive rock group England. Includes recordings covering over 40 years of Robert's career.

"Robert Webb was the main music-writing contributor on England's highly-acclaimed album ”Garden Shed” in the 70's. Yet, as both keyboard player and vocalist the story doesn’t end there.
Robert’s music-making career has taken many twists and turns: from pop to rock, rock to baroque, film music to theatrical music, and from cover bands to jazz choir arrangements. As Robert himself has said, “my intent has always been either to make pop music more artistic, or art music more popular”.
”Liqourish Allsorts” includes recordings covering over 40 years. The album has brought together various recordings from Robert's work in the field: from early studio sessions, through unreleased home recordings and onto current music work. The latter include rock band performances by England, Baroque Nouveau and The Samurai of Prog." (CDbaby)
