Genre: Jazz, Avant-Garde Jazz

Switch comes along with great innovations – new band, different approach and original sound. It was recorded in collaboration with Erland Dahlen (drums, metal plate, logdrum, steeldrum, drum machine, Blosson Bells, Xylophone, electric guitar, baritone guitar), Geir Sundstøl (pedal steel guitar, six string bass, national resophonic guitar), Morten Quenild (hyper piano, programming and electronics) and Jon Marius Aareskjold (additional programming).The recording is proving the artist’s ambition of never settling for a specific soundscape. Within this album, Nils Petter Molvaer is bringing the pedal steel guitar as the main novelty of his newest production. The sound of his trumpet blending with the beauty of the steel guitar gives his music a new sound palette.

Having made the switch to exclusively playing vibraphone with his quartet on 2009's Music Update, Jason Marsalis sticks to his guns, errr, mallets on 2013's In a World of Mallets. Besides vibes, Marsalis also plays various other instruments here including marimba, glockenspiel, tubular bells, and xylophone. Once again working with his quartet featuring pianist Austin Johnson, bassist Will Goble, and drummer Dave Potter, Marsalis delivers an exploratory yet swinging mix of chamber and post-bop jazz. As an ensemble, they seem to have a relaxed, intuitive sense for group interplay and plenty of chops to spare.

EAC FLAC (220 MB) | NO LOG | Embedded CUE | scans (20 MB) | OGG·160 (55 MB)
Erdenklang 20602 (1992) | electronic - world music - new-age

The Estonian keyboarder and composer Peeter Vähi takes us along a path into the exotic world of Asia, to the Siberian shamans, a overtone singer from Tuva , a Taiwanese ensemble, performs with a Turkish darbuka player, leads us to a Vietnamese woman with her bamboo xylophone, to a woman flautist and a singer from Cambodia who masters a unique performance technique. One seems to be in the heart of Asia in "Shambala", a mystical place and its religious community somewhere in the Himalaya. In actual fact it can be found in a sheer boundlessly multifacetted cultural location.

"Ouganda - Au Sources du Nil

Ouganda - Au Sources du Nil
Genre: Natinonal Folk, Uganda | MP3, 192 Kbps | Label: Ocora | 108 Mb

This field recording offers a diverse assortment of Uganda's many styles. Several ensembles are represented, two modern, the rest more or less traditional. The traditional instruments range from several kinds of drums to harp, xylophone, and one-string fiddle. While the best work comes from the instrumental soloists, especially the three harp players and the endingidi fiddler, perhaps the most unusual traditional performance is by the orchestra of agwara horns. This orchestra is composed of nine horns, each of which can play only one note! They create a melody by taking turns playing. The group could stand to work on its coordination but is still fascinating in its concept. (AMG) Details

The pulsations of Steve Reich's landmark Music for 18 Musicians signify a New Music precipice. Where so much music after World War II explored extremes of tone, time, and register, Reich--and some of his colleagues in the 1960s and after--gravitated towards immersion in repetitions and telescoped focus on tonal areas. The combination of piano, vibraphone, marimba, xylophone, clarinets, violin, cello, and female voices is intoxicating in Reich's hands. Reich creates a middle-register, ringing vamp with burnished reed palpitations and, eventually, quick, rolling piano figures emerge in tandem with the percussion. This recording is the second-best known, next to the ECM Records version of the piece, and is warm and colorfully tingling.

The Marimba is a relative of the xylophone, distinct for its large, typically semi-tubular resonators found underneath the keys, and larger range than its smaller counterpart. Its history is complex, having early origins in Africa and Central America, but it found a prominent home in the halls of America’s Vaudeville at the start of the 20th Century. Details

Hand Chimes are a strange quirk of musical evolution. Created as a cheaper and more durable alternative to hand bells, these giant mutant ninja tuning forks have a mellow sound that is best described as a cross between a xylophone, a music box, and a celesta. Details
