CFCE 87.8 FM Weekly Genre: Free Jazz

Recorded during Coltrane's final studio sessions (in 1967) before his sudden departure for other phantasmagorical spheres, "Interstellar Space" had to wait 7 long years before it deserved its release in record stores. And yet, it is one of the best discographic offerings the greatest saxophonist of all times, the furious jazz god.

Tant de belles mélodies

When I listen to Françoise, I inevitably think of my mum. My mother and I share a boundless love for many musical artists (Georges Brassens, Djeli Moussa Diawara, the Beatles, Neil Young... to name but a few). But it's really when I hear Françoise Hardy's angelic/sumptuous voice that I think of her the most. She's her favorite singer, without a doubt.

In the early 70s, the Ethiopian scene was bubbling with activity.

Among these gentlemen were vibraphonist Mulatu Astatke (known as the father of ethio-jazz), saxophonist Getatchew Mekurya (who ... read more

No elevator music.

Larry Young was the greatest organist Jazz has ever known, no more and no less! Yep. Even cooler than our dear Jimmy Smith, who was however a big influence for this good old Larry. After training with legends like Hank Mobley and Kenny Dorham, sir Young developed his very particular jazz personality as a band leader on the Blue Note label. He signs 7 excellent records (including the sublime "Unity"; review is potentially coming soon) in a "Post-Bop" ... read more

CFCE 87.8 FM Weekly Genre: Minimalism

It's a feeling that has flowed through the hearts of all of us at one time or another over the last few years: a feeling of weariness in the face of the uninterrupted flow of new releases, reissues, hidden gems, treasures found by a curious friend in a dusty record store on the other side of the world. Lost between the flood of data and the turmoil of our curiosity, it is sometimes a feeling of disgust that prevails, and the impression that a majority of ... read more

Hello there! My friends Joe and John just released their first track under the pseudonym ‘2jStreet’. The song is called ‘Came For This’ and I’m sure they’d really appreciate if you gave it a listen and a rating. Any feedback, good or bad I’m sure they would appreciate as well. Thanks. https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/264652-2jstreet-came-for-this.php

Hi man, I am working on a list and I would like to have as much views as I can. Here is my question, what are your top 3 albums from the last decade (January 2010 to dec 2019). I am not interest in what critics said or which ones were the most praised albums from that period, I want to know about your personal list. I will really appreciate your help. Cheers mate!

Definitely checking out 0% for sure. There was a live stream on YouTube couple days ago btw but it’s amazing because her performances are sometimes better than the audio versions. I actually live in the same country as her so I have quick access to her concerts, lucky me :)
(I appreciate it if you check out my 0 review tho)

Which rapper do you think would be the best president?

(It's for a list you bozo 😹👎👎)

Yessir!

I value artists like Tom Waits and Bob Dylan that put forth amazing story telling. I love that you appreciate Tom Waits! He’s such an amazing artists that really pushes the envelope unlike many artists especially pushing 3+ decades of music that contains a variety of sounds and styles.
