John Wetton was a major musician with respect to numbers of albums in my music collection (e.g. cf. David Bowie),  so most the music being played Thursday night with have direct or indirect connections to John Wetton: respectively, the former featuring Wetton, the latter covers of tunes that he recorded first.  Lesser known musicians, who alas have also died in the last few weeks, are featured, i.e.  Doug Lunn and Deke Leonard. In addition, a couple of carry overs from last week's excellent show with Gren Bartley, (I was surprised to discover on playback, that only one Bartley tune was played last week, when we put the show together live on air), so one tune to make up for that and a tune taken from Gren's favourite Tool album. Interesting album of covers by Ed Palermo's BB, due to be released at the end of this month, as featured. A couple of days left to download the recording of the ALT2 Show with Gren Bartley.

After thinking about it for quite some time, we are largely concentrating on Swedish music this Thursday. The exceptions are the Allman Brothers (following the announcement of drummer Butch Trucks' death), our discover of 2017 Firefly Burning, a couple new releases from Cuddle Magic and Parlor Walls, and tracks from the forthcoming sampler 'She Rocks'. Chance to compare drummer/keyboard combos of The Johansson brothers  and Mats Morgan. Of course some Jonas Hellborg in different moods. A personal favourite, Harriet Ohlsson. The wackiness of Samla Mammas Manna. Rock blues/R'n'B of friend and former lead of Brickhouse, Mange Andersson's The Grand Electric. And hopeful if the CD arrives on time, we will include the freshing rock sound of Suicide By Tigers.

A few tunes with titles that fit my mood at the moment. And a big raid of the archives this week. Thanks to my nephew Kris, for giving me the Goo Goo Dolls album for my birthday, I guess to educate me. Thanks to my cousin Nat for reminding me I had the Al Green /Chicago collaboration tucked away at the end of a remaster CD: an excellent piece of soul and Chicago duly muted. Three tracks featuring Jakko Jakszyk, one of which we got a world exclusive some time ago, as it turned out 6 months before the album was eventually released. Another Loughborough connection with the Nucleus track recorded here just over 40 years ago. Properly scheduled in this week, examples from Gary Lucas and Toni Dezso's forthcoming release - and making me think hard: should I dare categorise their music? Alas yet another death of a musician reported this week, hence a couple of tunes from the classic, Can's 'Tago Mago'. Thanks to the Russian modern psychedelia/space rockers Vespero for the promo. And I thought is was about time I played The Beatles' most unusual recording, influenced by Stockhausen: 'Revolution 9'. Thanks to those who fed back giving their preference as to which Bent Knee jingle, might test out the new jingles Magnus 'Mange' Andersson, formerly of Brickhouse and now lead singer with The Electric Grand, made for me too.

I've been waiting for this one. One of my favorite bands of the last 25 years!

I concur. It's a paycheck. I'm not a fan of the band.
 
I prefer the Johannsons to Mats & Morgan. All are tremendous players but I simply like Jens' records better.

Coming a few days after my birthday, this programme is a celebration of good musics. Another new release from the excellent Moonjune Records, the world fusion of Tohpati. One of those 2016 top 20 album in the form of Jack DeJohnette et al's 'In Movement'. Thanks to the folks at Djam Karet for their new release. And thanks to Sid Smith to the introduction to London's Firefly Burning and their refreshing fusions with rock. More excellent folk music from Gren Bartley's 'Winter Fires' album. And there are samplings from other albums played recently. And we finish with a sample from another album by Japan's Morgaua Quartet, playing an excellent arrangement of early Genesis music.

Scanned a few of your charts. Very cool to see Jens Johannson pop up a number of times! Fjaderlosa Tvafotingar, Heavy Machinery, Fission and (Mastermind's) Excelsior! all occupy permanent spaces within my collection. Thumbs Up

Happy new year to all my friends old and new, especially those after some time of non-contact, make up their minds to make contact ... please try.

Inevitably have to spend time remembering the powerhouse fusion drummer Alphonse Mouzon and his music, whose death from cancer was announced just before Christmas. Early word on the internet by those lucky few who have checked out the web-streaming of the album by Wingfield Reuter Stavi Sirkis, 'The Stonehouse' (out mid February), is that already this is the best best jazz release of 2017..... thanks to label owner Leonardo for providing the promo. The darling of international jazz magazines in 2016, Kamasi Washington, has a new album out playing with the interestingly named band, Throttle Elevator Music. My favourite PIL album has undergone remastering and the addition of 3 new CDs of recordings, (amazingly for me, there is a cover of Zeppelin's 'Kashmir' included); tempted by various of the new recordings (e.g. the Ginger Baker dominated/Vai muted remix of 'Ease') but gone for something off the original remaster. The Rush '2112 40th Anniversary' issue seems rather a mess once you get passed the remaster of the original album (CD1), but check out Steven Wilson's cover from CD2. More from my belated discovery of 2016, Anakadota, with IHMO rare new progressive music that is pushing the boundaries. Some modern Argentine psychedelia from a free download!!!! issued by Vlad Tepes, rated by a couple of reviewers as one of the top 20 releases of 2016. We finished by dipping into

the modern serious music/minimalism catalogue.

As you know I'm pleasantly surprised to be back here already, so this unexpected ALT2 Show. As well as the new (actually not that many), I've raided the archives for a few favourites and picked some releases that came out earlier this year that I've enjoyed. And then some to confuse (?):


Snarky Puppy and Skinny Puppy, both interesting but some distance apart musically .

Anekdoten and Anakdota, respectively first albums by Swedish and Israeli prog bands. The former from the 90's adding a heavy edge plus cello to an early 70's Krimson influence. While one review suggested the latter are cross between Genesis and Gentle Giant, I beg to differ. Instead, in my search to find a so-called prog bands that actually 'progress', I suggest the recently released Anakdota album refreshingly does.... and its been quite some time since recommending RPWL as a literally progressive band.  


Decided that Gary Lucas & Jan Klose's 'Stereopticon' is the ALT2's folk album of the year, I simple keep going back to listen.  But I've got to put in a word for my folk tune of the year, beit a couple of years after its release, Gren Bartley's 'I Am Home'. I hope to get Gren on the show soon. While Bent Knee's Cuneiform release 'Say So' is our rock album of the year, I've been impressed by their early album, 'Shiny Eyed Babies'. 


I suppose my 'pleasant surprise of the year' was discovering Japan's Morgaua (string) Quartet's interpretation of some prog rock classics... having had quite a few enforced hour to listen deeply, personally I find two tracks off this album sound violin screechy, but the rest of the arrangements really do it for me.


BTW that new Rolling Stones album is a real enjoyable throw back to the music they covered and played in the beginning of the 60's.   


Finally the saddest thing whilst resting in a hospital ward last Thursday, was to read that Gregg Lake had died of cancer. Hence the  tribute.

Apologies wrt this belated posting, I had been waiting for a delivery from Amazon to play tonight and as yet (midday Thursday) that hasn't appeared.


This in fact is my last broadcast before Christmas, and I'll explain by separate message.


As hinted, I had hoped for a copy of Richie Blackmore's 'Live In Germany' release by now. A colleague had seen the band at Birmingham's NEC earlier this year. I had warned to watch out for Jens Johansson,  and the report back that he had been impressive, especially doing those Jon Lord breaks a treat. BUT>>>>> instead to complete the run of Johansson samples as musician of the term, I've turned to something off his heavy fusion album 'Fission', here with Mike Stern guesting. F-word alert: playing The Who version back to back with the original version Mose Allison's 'Young Man Blues'. Separate listeners suggested and then loaned me respectively Ivo Neame and the Beyond Turbines albums for radioplay. I forget who posted the You Tube clip of Morgaua Quartet playing arrangements of  some classic early progressive music tunes, but it was enough for me to buy the albums. So much else worth of comment/references, only at this moment  say: as a fan of RPWL , I grabbed their new recording, which is a reenactment of Pink Floyd's 1969 live show music...i.e. a period when still enjoyed a lot of PF's music..tonight I'm going for a variant of 'Granchester Meadows'.
