1. SONIC LIBERATION FRONT: Ashè a Go-Go (High Two) Yin and yang”€fierce avant-sax and friendly folk songs united by shifty Afro-Cuban beats.

2. MATTHEW SHIPP: Harmony and Abyss (Thirsty Ear) Sums up the Blue Series with the return of the piano as the grandest rhythm instrument of all.

3. THE VANDERMARK FIVE: Elements of Style . . . Exercises in Surprise (Atavistic) The ideas come fast and furious with Vandermark's acoustic machine in full gear.

4. DAVID MURRAY & THE GWO-KA MASTERS: Gwotet (Justin Time) A fast one from Guadeloupe, phattened up with Pharoah and the Latin Big Band.

5. CHARLIE HADEN: Land of the Sun (Verve) Down Mexico way, a land of enchantment and relaxed cosmopolitanism.

6. TRIAGE: American Mythology (Okka) Rust Belt saxman Dave Rempis breaks out.

7. JEWELS & BINOCULARS: Floater (Ramboy) Every now and then a scrap of Bob Dylan melody floats by like a leaf in a warm autumn breeze.

8. ZU & SPACEWAYS INC.: Radiale (Atavistic) Battle of the bands returns to the classics”€Sun Ra and Funkadelic.

9. SATOKO FUJII QUARTET: Zephyros (NatSat) Her records range so widely you're never sure where she'll go next, but this rhythm section wants to rock out.

10. DON BYRON: Ivey-Divey (Blue Note) The most expansive album ever by the guy who started the clarinet's return to jazz prominence.

Collecting contributions allows us to continue giving reliable information that takes many hours of work. LSNN is in continuous development and offers its own platform, to give space to authors, who fully exploit its potential. Your help is also needed now more than ever!

In a world, where disinformation is the main strategy, adopted to be able to act sometimes to the detriment of human rights by increasingly reducing freedom of expression , You can make a difference by helping us to keep disclosure alive. This project was born in June 1999 and has become a real mission, which we carry out with dedication and always independently "this is a fact: we have never made use of funds or contributions of any kind, we have always self-financed every single operation and dissemination project ". Give your hard-earned cash to sites or channels that change flags every time the wind blows , LSNN is proof that you don't change flags you were born for! We have seen the birth of realities that die after a few months at most after two years. Those who continue in the nurturing reality of which there is no history, in some way contribute in taking more and more freedom of expression from people who, like You , have decided and want to live in a more ethical world, in which existing is not a right to be conquered, L or it is because you already exist and were born with these rights! The ability to distinguish and decide intelligently is a fact, which allows us to continue . An important fact is the time that «LSNN takes» and it is remarkable! Countless hours in source research and control, development, security, public relations, is the foundation of our basic and day-to-day tasks. We do not schedule releases and publications, everything happens spontaneously and at all hours of the day or night, in the instant in which the single author or whoever writes or curates the contents makes them public. LSNN has made this popular project pure love, in the direction of the right of expression and always on the side of human rights. Thanks, contribute now click here this is the wallet to contribute
