Alex Sipiagin: NoFo Skies

Read "NoFo Skies" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

An active veteran of touring stages around the world, Russian trumpeter Alex Sipiagin has sessioned with, among many, Dr. John, Elvis Costello, Dave Holland's Big Band, Michael Brecker's Sextet and Quindecet, plus the Mingus Big Band, Dynasty Band, and Orchestra.

Alex Sipiagin: Balance 38-58

Read "Balance 38-58" reviewed by Andrew Luhn

Jazz fans who have followed trumpeter Alex Sipiagin's career thus far will have noticed that he likes to approach his original (and highly unique) music differently on each new album he presents. His 2013 release on the distinguished Criss Cross label, Overlooking Moments, presented his music in a stripped-down, chord-less quartet setting and focused on the dynamic interplay between Sipiagin, tenor-giant Chris Potter, and the formidable rhythm section of Scott Colley and Eric Harland. In contrast, his excellent 2011 sextet ...
