      €10.50 EUR or more 


  • Compact Disc (CD)

    The same as the above, but without the jewel box.
    If you have no need of the somewhat unloved and increasingly old-fashioned jewel box, we will send you the disc and all paper parts from the CD, without the plastic box.
    The price is the same (we don't really need any more empty jewel boxes!), but it should offer you significant savings on shipping, especially if you order several discs and/or are outside Europe.

  • full score: Music For 10(0) [version 1]



A suite of pieces for 10 improvisers plus poet, recorded live at the 1993 Termite Festival. Poems by the redoubtable Out To Lunch...

---------- selected press quotes ----------

"Music For 10(0) may be Fell's best recording yet. If you haven't checked out Fell's music, I suggest strongly that you do so soon. He's made some of the most exciting improvised music to come out of Britain this decade. This is a good place to start." Robert Iannapollo CADENCE

"Fell's idiosyncratic vision is at its most adventurous here.....a major work." Chris Blackford THE WIRE

"The energy and shock value alone are worth the price of admission. Fell is an A ticket if abrasive music and bad attitude is the ride in mind." Dave McElfresh JAZZ NOW

"Many of the textures and juxtapositions are as dramatic and undiscovered as anything free music can throw out." THE PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ ON CD

"This kicks in really hard. When the large ensemble plays the prelude with full power - the baritone sax roars, the bass clarinet rumbles mightily and skids, the french horn peppering up above - you need to have pretty tough ears. Compacted storms of improvisation clean your ears and brain of all the lazy habits of consumerist deadness to sound." MS JAZZ PODIUM
