MILLIONAIRE

Millionaire released a new single, "Don't".

"Don’t" is the first new music from Tim Vanhamel's Millionaire since their hugely acclaimed Sciencing album from 2017. We are still clueless over whether this track is also a peek into the next Millionaire record, but we do know for sure Don't is an essential funky groover.



SUN RA - SOLO KEYBOARDS, MINNESOTA 1978

Next to the "Space Is The Place - Music For The Film" re-release, this brand-new recording turned up on Bandcamp earlier this month.
Sun Ra on solo piano and on Crumar Synth.

Recorded at a Minnesota club in 1978.
Sounds pretty good !!

SNARKY PUPPY - SYLVA

Keeping the best for last in my Snarky Puppy updates...
Sylva is the result of the contribution of Snarky Puppy with the Dutch Metropole Orkest.

Simply amazing.
Essential listening.



SNARKY PUPPY - FAMILY DINNER VOLUME 1

Snarky Puppy has recorded two album with guest vocalists. Plural, as it's another vocalist on (almost) every track.
As the title suggests, "Family Dinner Volume One", released in 2013, was the first one.
It did get the band some extra attention as they won a Grammy Award for their rendition of 'Something', with Lalah Hathaway on vocals.
Well deserved.

Recorded (and filmed) in front of a live audience on November 21, 2009, at the Dockside Studio in Maurice, Louisiana.
5 tracks and if you get the edition with the dvd, you'll have a couple of bonus tracks as well.

THE OAKLAND ELEMENTARY ARKESTRA


From Bandcamp :

Unless you attended elementary school in Oakland, California in 1997, you probably had no idea that this meeting of elementary school music students and improvisational jazz luminaries existed.

Working within and beyond the vision of elementary school music teacher Randy Porter, The Thornhill Sound presents the odyssey of 4th, 5th & 6th grade students from novice musicians into an avant garde ensemble. The extremely rare, once cassette only, The Thornhill Sound features 29 mini opuses of imprecise, meditative, ethereal soundclouds of wonder and joy, the children were joined by such luminaries as Terry Riley, Fred Frith, Dave Slusser, and Dave Gordon, Tyrone Hill, & Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Arkestra! Among these amazing interplanetary improv pieces are a few Sun Ra covers. Highlights of this cassette combined with the Big Music, Little Musicians recordings went on to form The Saga Of Padani.
