This special "Name Your Price" compilation album features 1.5 hours of creative and fun music over the course of 16 tracks all of which was released or reissued by Cuneiform Records in 2015.

So, what music did Cuneiform release in 2015?  You can hear Cuneiform’s year of releases in a compilation album, The Albums of 2015 featuring tracks from all 16 of our 2015 releases.

What music is on it?  Orchestras and Big Bands!!!! LARGE ensembles performing New/Creative Music, Jazz and/or genre-bending Jazz/Beyond including Adam Rudolph/Go: Organic Guitar Orchestra; guitarists Henry Kaiser and Ray Russell (US & UK)with a ten-piece ensemble, Rob Mazurek’s Exploding Star Orchestra; and two albums by Michael Gibbs and the NDR BigBand, one of which features Bill Frisell, along with a Frisell set list. New cutting-edge jazz & beyond recordings by bands from around the world, including The Kandinsky Effect (Paris & NYC); Le Rex (Switzerland); Pixel (Norway); Raoul Bjorkenheim’s Ecstasy (Finland) and Schnellertollermeier (Switzerland). New recordings by experimental/art rock/avant progressive bands such as Sonar (Switzerland); Guapo (UK); Schnellertollermeier (Switzerland); and a reissue of the 1989 album, In This Life, by American Rock In Opposition associates, Thinking Plague. We released the first-ever vinyl-only reissue of French electronic musician/guitarist Richard Pinhas’ 1978 Chronolyse, which he initially conceived as a Moog tribute to Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic Dune (which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2015).  We also released two previously-unreleased archival jazz recordings: a CD of 1966 and 1970 archival recordings by the late great British saxophonist Mike Osborne, and a CD/DVD set of the British avant-group Soft Machine with Alan Holdsworth, filmed and recorded live at the 1974 Montreux Jazz Festival.  Looking over these 2015 releases, one can’t help noticing that many feature some of the world’s most acclaimed guitarists, including Bill Frisell, Alan Holdsworth, Ray Russell, Henry Kaiser, Richard Pinhas, and Raoul Bjorkenheim, to name a few.

We invite you to listen to Cuneiform's The Albums of 2015. We're honored to have worked with and released albums by some of the best musicians in the world in 2015.
