Strings of Niger

Other Brother Productions 001
$10 ppd

Two long extended improvisations by; Mouhammadou Moussa on the three stringed "molo" lute. And one long extended improvisation by; Abdou Mohammed on the biram harp. With the explosion of hi-tech Afro-Pop music nowdays, these beautiful subtle solo improvisations hold up well to repeated listenings as well as preserving a rare and threatened musical tradition. Highly recommended.

Mike Gilmore- Solo Saz (2000)

Entropy / Codex 001

Mike (a member of Northwoods Improvisers) is heard here playing
solo improvisations on the Turkish Saz. Mike is a highly accomplished
string player. The music is both rich and diverse. 30 minutes
total playing time.


Northwoods Improvisers
Spinning CD

ARC, England
$13 ppd

The second release from this Michigan trio who have been making creative improvised acoustic music for over 20 years. We have this one at a domestic price.

"This is brave music you can dance to or hum along with. Spinning is accurately titled; it spins a host of tales so ancient they can no longer be told openly, and offers them in a groove so deep and wide you have no choice as a listener but to sink right in and start moving."

Thom Jurek, All Music Guide

Northwoods Improvisers
Fog and Fire CD

ARC, England
$13 ppd

Hauntingly beautiful, refreshing improvised jazz with Middle Eastern and East Asian influences. Three guys with Vibes, Koto, Log Drum, and a variety of other ancient and modern instruments make this one of the best Jazz releases of 1994

"...'Fog' is the listeners' first definitive glance into the extended free ambient universe that the trio explores further on successive albums. Vibe overtones beautifully crash with subdued arrhythmic drumming/percussion, as Johnston first greets listeners with his gorgeous bass recorder playing before again picking up the bass and bowing."

Jason Hundley, All Music Guide
