Joe McPhee - Solos: The Lost Tapes (1980-1981-1984)
Joe McPhee
Solos: The Lost Tapes (1980-1981-1984)
LP | 2015 | US | Original (Roaratorio)
22,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Material from Joe McPhee's personal archives that shines new light on the legendary multi-instrumentalist’s work from the early 1980s. “Wind Cycles,” for tenor saxophone, explores the permutations of breath on reed and brass, from quiet whispers to full-throated cries and back again. With “The Redwood Rag,” McPhee takes a jaunty melody and gives it a swinging workout with Steve Lacy-like precision. The free-blowing alto excursion “Ice Blu,” is in McPhee’s words, “a sound which evokes an image, which asks a question ‘What is that?’ and the answer is, a sound which evokes an image which asks a question.” “Voices,” one of his signature compositions, gets a particularly haunting treatment here on soprano with the incorporations of mesmerizing electronics. Includes a download coupon for the full album plus a bonus interview, conducted at the New Music America Festival in 1981.
Joe McPhee & Chris Corsano - Under A Double Moon
Joe McPhee & Chris Corsano
Under A Double Moon
LP | 2011 | US | Reissue (Roaratorio)
20,99 €*
Release:2011 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
With a career now spanning over forty years and more than one-hundred recordings, Joe Mcphee has shown that in the world of creative improvised music, emotional content and theoretical underpinnings are thoroughly compatible--and, in fact, a critically important pairing. Since recording The Hated Music with Paul Flaherty in 2000, Chris Corsano has been active in far-reaching corners of the free improvised world. Recorded live in Paris during their spring 2010 tour of Europe, Under A Double Moon is McPhee and Corsano's first album together. Cover artwork by Judith Lindbloom. Liner notes by John Szwed. Includes download
David Maranha Ensemble - Salt, Ashes, Goat Skin
David Maranha Ensemble
Salt, Ashes, Goat Skin
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Roaratorio)
22,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Drummer Diana Combo, electric guitarist Filipe Felizardo and David Maranha on organ and violin are a speculative tour de force around animic and sensory principles of movement, stillness and reaction. Long drawn out semi-riffs feedback along the drifting textures of the violin and the organ like rock’s ultimate coda stretched into nowhere. Drums plodding in restraint, sustaining the drone-like vortex of electricity without ever reaching any sort of conclusion in four pieces that inhabit their own universe continually. Includes download card.
Fraser & Debolt - This Song Was Borne
Fraser & Debolt
This Song Was Borne
2LP | 2016 | US | Original (Roaratorio)
37,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Previously unreleased demos, studio outtakes, radio sessions and live recordings from the archives, spanning the entire career of these shining lights of the late ’60s Canadian coffeehouse circuit whose two albums for Columbia are cult classics in psychedelic folk circles. Their combination of ragged-but-right, salt-and-pepper harmonies, evocative lyrics, beautiful songs with the occasional dissonant grace note, and careful arrangements that still sound off-the-cuff make for some of the most beguiling music of its era. Detailed liner notes by the artists. With download card.
Sun Ra & His Astro Infinity Arkestra - The Intergalactic Thing
Sun Ra & His Astro Infinity Arkestra
The Intergalactic Thing
2LP | 2016 | US | Original (Roaratorio)
44,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
This material was recorded during 1969 rehearsals at the Sun Ra house in Philadelphia. 'The Intergalactic Thing' introduces a dozen never-before-heard pieces from Ra's songbook (tunes that may have never even made it to the bandstand, let alone the recording studio) along with a handful of reworkings of such Ra classics as 'Spontaneous Simplicity' and 'The Exotic Forest.' Without a doubt, this is one of the most important augmentations to the Sun Ra catalogue in many a moon. This double-LP set comes in a beautiful gatefold jacket, with extensive liner notes by Ra discographer Robert L. Campbell and a download coupon for the full album.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Following Roaratorio’s release of Family Evil in 2012, this West Coast psychedelic band reunited and began playing out again, with their vintage sound intact. This second helping of unearthed material from the band’s archives starts with three tracks from their earliest recording sessions in 1967—the swaggering garage-rock miniature “Dawn Sermon” and the folk-rock “For All Of My Life” and “Tell Her For Me”—and then moves on to a Fillmore West gig from November 1969, featuring the final incarnation of the group during their original run. With the same complex harmonies, nuanced songwriting and top-drawer musicianship that won Family Evil its accolades, the half-dozen tunes here range from the crunchy riffs of the title track and “It’s Winter” to the lightly jazzy “Don’t Fall Brother” and the Latin-tinged moves of “There Is Light There.”
Philip Corner - Through Two More Than Mysterious Barricades
Philip Corner
Through Two More Than Mysterious Barricades
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Roaratorio)
14,39 €* 23,99 € -40%
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Two very different takes on “Les Barricades Mistérieuses,” the harpsichord gem by French Baroque composer François Couperin. The first dates from 1992, in collaboration with dancer Paulette Sears (who provides the “singings and screamings” of the album’s subtitle) and moves from a frenzy of abstraction to a more meditative zone, with diversions and tributaries along the way. The second, from 2004, is a rougher beast, recorded with wildly over-saturated levels; the tape machine itself becomes a participant in the performance, with its heavy distortion bringing out stormclouds of overtones from Philip Corner’s piano. Download coupon included.
Sun Ra & His Astro-Infinity Arkestra - Sign Of The Myth
Sun Ra & His Astro-Infinity Arkestra
Sign Of The Myth
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Roaratorio)
21,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
In 1972, Sun Ra inked a high-profile deal with ABC / Impulse, bringing his recorded work to the widest audience he’d had to date. A slew of Saturn back catalog titles and two newly-recorded albums (Astro Black, Pathways To Unknown Worlds) were issued before ABC cancelled the contract, dumped the records into the cut-out bins, and left the unreleased albums to languish. Now, over four decades later, Roaratorio is proud to offer one of the lost Impulse recordings for the first time. Sign Of The Myth hails from the same studio session as Pathways, and shares its emphasis on guided improvisations. With a constantly shifting palette of Moog textures, Ra tosses off a dazzling array of ideas throughout, supported by the usual Arkestra stalwarts; in particular, bassist Ronnie Boykins and drummer Clifford Jarvis are in shining form here, giving shape and solidity to these pieces. Sign Of The Myth is a welcome augmentation to an especially fertile period from Sun Ra’s time on Earth.
A Trio - Live In Nickelsdorf
A Trio
Live In Nickelsdorf
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Roaratorio)
16,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The heavily textural, frequently perplexing, sometimes unsettling music of Mazen Kerbaj (trumpet), Sharif Sehnaoui acoustic guitar), and Raed Yassin (doublebass) bears little relation to its cousins from similar outer realms of extended technique. Live In Nickeldorf is the sound of a collective ur-mind that favors the long gesture over pointillistic strokes. Using no electronics or overdubs whatsoever, the Beirut-based trio's capacity for generating aural illusions is astounding; one would be hard-pressed to identify their sources as three acoustic instruments. Includes download coupon. Edition of 350.
