FOX     2       STEVE  REICH            BERKELEY NOVEMBER 7, 1970       LP      05.2019

SIDE A  1       Four Organs
        2       My Name Is
        3       Piano Phase Part One
SIDE B  1       Piano Phase Part Two
        2       Phase Patterns

Alternative Fox delivers a landmark release in the history of minimalism with a live
performance documented from one of the genre's key figures-Steve Reich. Recorded live
at Berkeley University in the 1970s (home also to key minimalism figures Terry Riley
and La Monte Young), this performance sees Reich deliver some of his now legendary
compositions, such as the shifting tape-loop experimentation of "My Name Is", whereby
vocals are cut up, looped and played at different speeds to create constantly shifting
combinations.

FOX     3       RALLIZES DENUDES + BE : THERE'S NO HEAVEN LIKE HELL     2LP     05.2019

SIDE A          There’s No Heaven Like Hell 1
SIDE B          There’s No Heaven Like Hell 1

SIDE C          There’s No Heaven Like Hell 2
SIDE D          There’s No Heaven Like Hell 2

One of the strangest and most enigmatic groups in the history of rock'n'roll, Les
Rallizes Denudes, also known as Hadaka no Rallizes or Hadaka no Rarizu, were a Japanese
experimental rock band that is often cited as a pioneering force of the noise rock
movement. Inspired by the Velvet Underground and other groups employing prominent,
overamplified guitar, the band's music was typically based on repetitive rhythmic
patterns bolstered by Takeshi Mizutani's heavily distorted lead guitar, though the
poor sound quality of early demos apparently turned Mizutani away from studio rec.,
rendering much of their output in the form of live bootlegs, supplanted by the
occasional leaked studio demo. The two versions of "There's No Heaven Like Hell"
presented here were recorded on 1 April 1975 at Rallizes House in Fussa, a small
town to the west of Tokyo, joining Mizutani with keyboardist/guitarist Taisuke
Morishita's experimental group Be, originally known as Yellow. The first version
takes the form of an epic slow drone, featuring Mizutani on acid guitar, backed only
by Morishita's pulsating synthesizer lines; the second version is in full marathon
mode, an hour-long dirge that sees the spacey duo joined by drummer Shunichiro Shoda
and a plodding bassist in the latter portion.

FOX     4       PHAROAH SANDERS : LIVE AT ANTIBES JAZZ FESTIVAL,        LP      05.2019
                JULY 21, 1968

Pharoah Sanders live at the Antibes Jazz Festival in Juan-les-Pins, July 21, 1968.
Pharoah Sanders' status began to rise upon joining John Coltrane's band in 1965, where
his discordant solos formed a strong contrast to Trane's more melodious sound, though
each player had a strong impact on the other's subsequent work. Following Coltrane's
untimely death in 1967, Sanders formed a quartet of his own with former Jazz Messengers
pianist Lonnie Liston Smith, bassist Norman 'Sirone' Jones of the Untraditional Jazz
Improvisational Team, and drummer Majeed Shabazz. For this blistering performance,
given at the Antibes Jazz Festival of 1968 and broadcast on French radio station WDR3,
the quartet moves through various Sanders free-jazz workouts, taking in 'Venus' from
the 'Tauhid' album and 'The Creator Has A Master Plan' from 'Karma' along the way,
with the rhythm section holding down the fort as Sanders blows himself into the
stratosphere.

FOX     5       TERRY RILEY/DON CHERRY/KARL BERGER-LIVE IN KOLN, 23.2.1975 2LP  05.2019

SIDE A          Descending Moonshine Dervishes
SIDE B          Descending Moonshine Dervishes Part Two

SIDE C          Sunrise Of The Planetary Dream
                Collector
SIDE D          Improvisation

The concert staged by Terry Riley, Don Cherry and Karl Berger in Cologne, Germany
on February 23 1975 serves as a landmark of minimalist jazz. The album is comprised
of just three mega-length songs, with Riley in the driver's seat, Berger as a steady
accompaniment and Cherry passing through in fleeting melodic moments; final track
"Koln Improvisations" references the Indian musical and spiritual forms that were
so appealing to each musician; opening track "Descending Moonshine Dervishes" bridges
the psychedelic and minimalist realms and "Sunrise Of The Planetary Dream Collective"
is based on throbbing, repetitive keyboard and vibraphone patterns.

The Brazilian singer-songwriter and guitarist Joyce Silveira Moreno was born and raised
in the middle of Copacabana, a short beach stroll from the epicentre of the bossa nova
universe. Her father was a Dane that had settled in Brazil, but she was raised by her
mother and stepfather in a typical Portuguese-Brazilian household. Since her older
brother was friendly with leading lights of the bossa nova movement such as Roberto
Menescal and Eumir Deodato, she was steeped in the form at an early age and witnessed
its key evolution first-hand. At the age of 16 in 1964, she was taken to the studio by
Menescal to contribute to the coveted debut album by the mythical group Sambacana,
assembled to record the work of composer Pacifico Mascarenhas when the meagre budget
would not allow the vocalists he preferred. Knowing that a full-time career in music
was certainly not guaranteed, she began studying journalism in 1967, shortly before
her controversial song "Me Disseram" reached the finals of Rios second International
Song Competition. The following year, her self-titled debut album was released by
Philips, produced by Armando Pittigliani, with orchestration by Dorival Caymmi and
arrangements by Gaya; along with her own compositions, the album also featured songs
by her rising-star friends, including Caetano Veloso and Marcos Valle.
