A Few More of My Favorite 2022 Jazz Things, Part 1

Read "A Few More of My Favorite 2022 Jazz Things, Part 1" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Twelve months have gone by so fast, and so much has happened... At the beginning of the year we were still under various degrees of lockdown or social distancing, now we have a war, weather patterns and a financial situation that are crazier than ever. One positive thread through these months, however, has been the relentless pace at which creative musicians have brought us album after album of gorgeous music, which confirmed once more that musicians may be the last ...

Pori Jazz 2022

Read "Pori Jazz 2022" reviewed by Rob Garratt


Pori Jazz 2022 Kirjurinluoto Concert Park jny:Pori, Finland July 14-16, 2022 If this year's 55th annual Pori Jazz festival had a “moment," it was when Immanuel Wilkins invited Shabaka Hutchings to the stage as a surprise guest for a dazzling 14-minute duet that capped the former's spellbinding set, and set the intense tone for the latter's to come shortly after. A cross-generational sax-off lacking all ego or one-upmanship, this searing, sympathetic encounter ...

Charles Lloyd: Trios: Chapel

Read "Trios: Chapel" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Blue Note Records has a history of boasting strong stables of players. In the 1950s and 60s, we could look to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, trumpeter Lee Morgan, pianist Herbie Hancock, saxophonist Wayne Shorter--and if ever there was an incomplete list compiled, that one is it. Time rolls on. Twenty years (or thereabouts) into the new millennium, the label hosts an all-star roster once again--pianist Gerald Clayton, saxophonist Melissa Aldana, sax man Immanuel Wilkins, guitarist Julian Lage, and--to ...

Charles Lloyd: Tone Poem

Read "Tone Poem" reviewed by Eric Gudas


Charles Lloyd and The Marvels' April 2017 performance at UCLA's Royce Hall, with guest vocalist Lucinda Williams, was nothing but highlights--from Lloyd's dance moves across the stage as one or other of his bandmates soloed, to Williams' impassioned performances on such songs as Bob Dylan's “Masters of War" and Jimi Hendrix's “Angel." They also played a song by Beach Boys. ("In My Room"). But the night really got going when the band played about fifteen minutes of Ornette Coleman material, ...

Charles Lloyd and the Marvels: Tone Poem

Read "Tone Poem" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


The download comes down the i-pipe in a virtual blue folder titled Charles Lloyd Tone Poem and the first thought upon initial listening is 'damn right it is'! It is a deceptively graceful covers album which immediately makes all the songs—many by none other than Ornette Coleman, Gabor Szabo and Leonard Cohen—their own highly active ecosystem of blurry form, focused response, and whatever else tickles Lloyd's fancy. Lloyd has been a genuine, spiritual force since the moment he ...
