No sharethread in the catalog so I'm starting one.
Any genre is allowed as long as the share doesn't have vocals
Laurie Anderson - Big Science
>spoken word, pop, electronic. one of the all-time classic records - ominous, enigmatic, but weirdly playful.
Kyle Bobby Dunn - Kyle Bobby Dunn & the Infinite Sadness (2014)
Pospulenn - Sun People Sleepwalker (2010)
>ambient, lo-fi, lush guitar arpeggios, comfy-core
your soundtrack for autumns to come
Whoops, didn't see the disclaimer
Ronald Reagan - The Wit and Wisdom of Ronald Reagan (FLAC)
>spoken word, poetry, essential spoken word
Simon Viklund - Payday 2 Soundtrack
>electro house, drum and bass, breaks
I posted it elsewhere earlier, but it fits here too.
One track has vocals, but it's a bonus track in the zip and not a part of the main OST.
Lumen Drones - Lumen Drones
>Post-Rock, Violin, maybe Psychedelic?
Dr. Alimantado- The Best Dressed Chicken in Town (1978)
>Alimantado was a Jamaican DJ who became one of the most popular in the dub movement of raggae. A few other big names like King Tubby and Lee “Scratch” Perry guest produce on several songs.
Maria Schneider- Evanescence (1994)
>big band, progressive jazz
>Considered by many to be the spiritual successor of Gil Evans, Maria Schneider writes complex, colorful and exciting music for big band. This was her debut album with a band made up of great jazz players like Tim Ries, Rich Perry, Tim Hagans, Ben Monder, and Kenny Werner.
Elvin Jones and Jimmy Garrison- Illumination (1964)
>avant-garde, post-bop, free jazz
>John Coltrane’s longtime rhythm section released this album in 1964 with a sound that was a bit more free and unusual than what most of them would do in the future. The feel sticks mostly to a solid swing from Garrison and Jones, but the soloists (Sonny Simmons on alto and English horn, Charles Davis on bari, and Prince Lasha on clarinet and flute) take liberties and push things into the realm of free improv.
Patato Valdes and his Latin Percussion Friends- Authority (1976)
>guaguanco, Afro-Cuban jazz
>Valdes was one of the percussionists who played on a number of great Latin records in the 50’s and 60’s. This album is heavy on percussion and vocals and features the stringed instruments quinto and tres in the traditional Cuban style of guaguanco.
Jonathan Kreisberg- Nine Stories Wide (2004)
>post-bop, modal jazz
>A departure from his quintet and his original compositions, this album features Krieisberg in a guitar trio setting and playing mostly new interpretations of jazz standards. Despite the somewhat “straight-ahead” nature of this record, Kreisberg’s tone and unmistakable chromatic approach to improvisation make this a very enjoyable listen.
J.J. Johnson, Kai Winding, and Benny Green- Trombone by Three (1949)
>Three of the greatest trombone players of the 40’s collaborated for this great record. They do mostly interesting original bop tunes, with a few standards mixed in. A great example of trombone bebop.
The Dirtbombs- Ultraglide in Black (2001)
>garage soul, rock, funk
>This rock band from Detroit plays soul and R&B covers with an energetic, punk-influenced sound. The covers span artists like Sly Stone, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, and Stevie Wonder.
Anthony Braxton- Composition 113 (1983)
>avant-garde, free jazz
>This is a programmatic piece for improvisers about six distinct personalities riding a train together. Braxton performs each of the six pieces on solo soprano saxophone and represents the different characters and their personalities through his performance.
Gene Bertoncini- Concerti (2008)
>Bertoncini plays a nylon-string acoustic guitar, which has been used much more in classical playing, but Bertoncini makes the sound work well for jazz. Bertoncini is accompanied on this album by bass and string quartet with some amazing arrangements.
Mauricio Kagel- Exotica (1972)
>avant-garde, experimental, composition
>Argentinean avant-garde composer wrote this highly unique work, for “non-European instruments.” It’s primative, violent, and at times downright creepy. Kagel stated his intention for the piece was to question ‘the dominance of Western music or “culture”’ or ‘go back to the primeval origins of music-making, when singing was still at one with making sound out of simple, everyday objects’. Also included is another of Kagel’s compositions, “Tactil,” one that’s more minimalistic.
Cecil Taylor Quartet- Looking Ahead! (1959)
>hard bop, free jazz
>Before Taylor truly embraced the free jazz that he would become famous for, he played in a more traditional style that sounds heavily influenced by Monk. This recording heavily features vibraphonist Earl Griffith for a set of jazz that isn’t completely free, but has some very adventurous improv for 1959.
Andrew Hill- A Beautiful Day (2002)
>avant-garde, large ensemble composition
>Recorded live in NYC, A Beautiful Day is one of Hill’s largest and most ambitious recordings. In his arrangements for big band, Hill still captures his idiosyncratic and abstract sense of melody and harmony. Despite the size of the band, Hill’s always adventurous piano work is still at the forefront of the music.
