Read "12 COMP (ZIM) 2017" reviewed by Mark Corroto


James Joyce, Anthony Braxton, and a music fan walk into a bar. The bartender says, “what is this? Some kind of a joke?" Joyce (okay, he died in 1941 but stay tuned) indicates, “this is no joke, and please send over the sommelier."

Anthony Braxton: Quartet (New Haven) 2014

Read "Quartet (New Haven) 2014" reviewed by Don Phipps


The shifting moods of Anthony Braxton's Quartet (New Haven) 2014 probably have to do with the song dedications. Each number reflects a famous and important popular musician and composer—-Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, James Brown and Merle Haggard. These four musicians would most certainly provide a strange but intoxicating mix if played at a party. Yet Hendrix's laid back and yet intense style, Joplin's unique blues passion, Brown's explosive showman funk and Haggard's homespun country songs serve as the inspiration for ...

Arian Bagheri Pour Fallah's Best Releases Of 2019

Read "Arian Bagheri Pour Fallah's Best Releases Of 2019" reviewed by Arian Bagheri Pour Fallah


As years continue to be shelved and stacked and tallied and turned and re'turned, the circular contours of CDs, LPs, tapes and file-types involved find too effigies in testimonial lines and accolades that no matter how exorbitant and sought-after serve as ropes above else given to the artist in proportion to his plight, albeit never enough to ensure a death.
