Tim Jones, also known as Preacherman and recorded under Midi Man, Ironing Board Band and T.J. Hustler.He made one very rare lp, and two even rarer CD’s. These tracks are from the CD’s. He was a salesmanfor IBM in Las Vegas, where he sold Selectric Typewriters and then word processors during the day andat night he would perform in the Las Vegas lounges. He was somewhat of an engineer and adapted aHammond B3 organ to play a moog synth with some of the organ keys, (some still played the organ),and he adapted the organ’s foot controlled bass levers to play two Moog synth bass pedals (a faileditem Moog made for a few years.) Thinking he wasn’t much of a live performer he had a wooden puppetmade that he named T.J Hustler, and together with the puppet, he would engage in long philosophicalsoliloquies, (some of which are featured on this album).If you meet Tim, he is not someone who stops talking. In fact he even created a little book called UniversalPhilosophy. He has a lot to say about everything. Currently he lives with his 103 year old mother inOakland. There he infrequently plays shows on his Casio where he fashions himself a live Karaokeperformer, who comes complete with 5 wireless mics and P.A. and a list of about a 100 songs he canplay. His invented organ contraption and puppet are in storage in Las Vegas, and he seems intenselyuninterested in getting them out, as “The kids these days want to hear the sounds the Casio makes.”

Alexandre Kassin ist ein brasilianischer Musikproduzent, Komponist, Multiinstrumentalist und Sänger. Erwurde 1974 in Rio de Janeiro geboren und zählt mittlerweile zu den bekanntesten Köpfen der heimischenPop-Szene. In seiner langen Karriere hat Kassin bereits über 100 Alben produziert, unter anderem für MarisaMonte und Bebel Gilberto. Auch Sean O’Hagan (Stereolab, High Llamas) stand er schon produktiv zur Seite.Konzerte von Caetano Veloso begleitete Kassin als Bassist. Außerdem ist er Leiter der Band OrquestraImperial. Mit Moreno Veloso und Domenico Lancelotti gründete Kassin die Gruppe +2. In jungen Jahrenerstellte er ein Album, das allein auf den Tönen eines Gameboy basierte. Sein aktuelles Werk "Relax" wartethingegen mit einem breiten, vor allem sehr zugänglichen stilistischen Spektrum auf. Über elf Stücke hinwegflirtet Kassin ganz entspannt mit tanzbaren südamerikanischen Rhythmen, brasilianischem Pop und Soul.Dabei gibt er erfundene Geschichten über den Tod, Drogenmissbrauch, Politik und das Schicksal zumBesten. Das macht "Relax" zu einem surreal-dichotomischen Erlebnis: den leichtfüßigen tropischenArrangements stehen recht schwere Inhalte gegenüber. Für Kassin zeigt sich darin das Yin und Yang desbrasilianischen Alltags - nichts ist gewiss.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda’s devotion to spirituality was the central purpose of the final four decades of her life, an often-overlooked awakening that largely took shape during her four-year marriage to John Coltrane and after his 1967 death. By 1983, Alice had established the 48-acre Sai Anantam Ashram outside of Los Angeles. She quietly began recording music from the ashram, releasing it within her spiritual community in the form of private press cassette tapes. On May 5, Luaka Bop will release the first-ever compilation of recordings from this period, making these songs available to the wider public for the first time. Entitled ‘World Spirituality Classics, Volume 1: The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda,’ the release is the first installment in a planned series of spiritual music from around the globe; curated, compiled and distributed by Luaka Bop.This powerful, largely unheard body of work finds Alice singing for the first time in her recorded catalog, which dates back to 1963 and includes appearances on six John Coltrane albums, alongside Charlie Haden and McCoy Tyner, and 14 albums as bandleader starting with her Impulse! debut in 1967 with ‘A Monastic Trio.’ The songs featured on the Luaka Bop release have been culled from the four cassettes that Alice recorded and released between 1982 and 1995: ‘Turiya Sings,’ ‘Divine Songs,’ ‘Infinite Chants,’ and ‘Glorious Chants.’ The digital, cassette and CD release will feature eight songs. The double-vinyl edition features two additional songs, “Krishna Japaye” from 1990’s ‘Infinite Chants, and the previously unreleased “Rama Katha” from a separate ‘Turiya Sings’ recording session.Luaka Bop teamed with Alice’s children to find the original master tapes in the Coltrane archive. The recordings were prepared for re-mastering by the legendary engineer Baker Bigsby (Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra, John Coltrane), who had overseen the original sessions in the 80s and 90s. The compilation showcases a diverse array of recordings in addition to Alice’s first vocal work: solo performances on her harp, small ensembles, and a 24-piece vocal choir. The release is dotted with eastern percussion, synthesizers, organs and strings, making for a mesmerizing, even otherworldly, listen. Alice was inspired by Vedic devotional songs from India and Nepal, adding her own music sensibility to the mix with original melodies and sophisticated song structures. She never lost her ability to draw from the bebop, blues and old-time spirituals of her Detroit youth, fusing a Western upbringing with Eastern classicism. In all, these recordings amount to a largely untold chapter in the life story of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda.In addition to the recordings, GRAMMY-winning music historian Ashley Kahn has written extensive liner notes on the collection. The package also includes a series of interviews with those who knew Alice best, conducted by Dublab’s Mark “Frosty” McNeill, and an as-told-to interview between musician Surya Botofasina (who was raised on Alice’s ashram) and journalist Andy Beta. 2017 marks what would have been Alice’s 80th year of life, as well as the 10th anniversary of her passing. Alice will be celebrated at events throughout the United States, Europe and South America in the coming year. With this in mind, the time is right to bring this meaningful piece of Turiyasangitananda’s legacy into focus.

Floating Points’ first productions emerged in 2008 and 2009, around the same time that he moved from Manchester to London (where he, fairly famously, studied neuroscience). He collaborated with early supporter Alexander Nut on Eglo, a label that has housed music by Fatima, Funkineven and Floating Points himself. Eglo has remained the main home for Floating Points’ music, though he’s also released on Planet Mu, Ninja Tune and Border Community. He also played a key role at now-closed London club Plastic People, as both a resident and a sounding board for its set-up.For Elaenia’s artwork, Floating Points “built a harmonograph from scratch to create the artwork for Elaenia, the end result created by using it and 2 fibre optic cables of 0.5 and 1.5mm diameters, which were connected to light sources responding to bass drum and white noise percussive sounds from the album track ‘For Marmish’.”The album features various contributors, including Tom Skinner and Leo Taylor (drums), Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne and Layla Rutherford (vocals), Susumu Mukai (bass), Alex Reeve (guitar), Qian Wu and Edward Benton (violin), Matthew Kettle (viola) and Joe Zeitlin (cello). Floating Points also contributes vocals.

This 1992 album by Tom Zé was already produced by Luaka Bop, David Byrne's label, after his discovery by Byrne when he was almost dropping everything to return to his hometown to work in a gas station. "I don't make art, I make spoken and sung journalism." This self-coined definition by Tom Zé helps listeners understand his music. Pop music with self-made instruments, references to modern erudite music, and strong reminiscences of ancient northeastern cantigas de cego and other grooves. On this album subtitled "The Return of Tom Zé," he sticks to the concept developed in the '60s by tropicália, the movement he helped to conceptualize, which perceived music as a cultural industry production for which it is valid to take any world influences, mixing them with Brazilian rhythms, concrete poetry, existentialism, drum machine loops (added later), pop culture, contemporary urban grooves, and everything else that eventually could be thought of. Tom Zé has lots of thoughts to express in his lyrics, which had an English version in the inlay, and this release may be very appealing for those who are into world music. It even explores some indigenous styles, delivered in an almost pure form. But, as he himself put out, his albums shouldn't be listened to for beautiful melodies.
