Isaiah Collier: Parallel Universe

Read "Parallel Universe" reviewed by Gareth Thompson


The direct-to-disc recording equipment in Haarlem's Artone studio resembles a vintage control room for time travel, or maybe the record deck in a cyberpunk loft. And yes, that's Haarlem, not Harlem, though one could be excused for mixing them up here. This is where Isaiah Collier came to record Parallel Universe, a valiant and affirmative album full of joyful noises. Musicians who trek to Artone cut their work onto acetate from single-take live performances. But anyone expecting a simplified version ...

Read "Festival International de Jazz de Montreal 2023" reviewed by Mike Chamberlain


Festival International de Jazz de Montreal Montreal, Quebec June 29-July 8, 2023 Not many cities like a party like Montreal, and the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal (FIJM) has been the biggest party in Montreal since its inception in 1980. Not even smoke from wildfires in northern Quebec could obscure the love that Montrealers and tourists from outside the city have for the festival. This year's 43rd edition of the FIJM was ...

I Am: Beyond

Read "Beyond" reviewed by Chris May


Tenor saxophone and drums duos were a thing at least as early as the 1950s, but John Coltrane and Elvin Jones elevated the format a decade later. Among their most exalted forays was the 27:04 title track of Coltrane's One Down, One Up: Live At The Half Note (Impulse, 2005), recorded in 1965. In case you missed the news, that album was given an audio upgrade in early 2022 on the Swiss-based ezz-thetics label's remastered Song Of Praise: Live New ...

I decided to take a break and let the music do the talking this time out, so this is an almost host-less episode of One Man's Jazz, filled with some great music as always.

There's more from James Brandon Lewis' Red Lily Quintet, the BSP Trio from Montreal, England's Trevor Watts with the Moire Music Orchestra, more bands from Argentina, and further ...

Angel Bat Dawid & Tha Brothahood: Live

Read "Live" reviewed by Chris May


When the Chicago-based clarinetist, vocalist, composer, poet and spiritual-jazz shaman Angel Bat Dawid performed with Tha Brothahood at the London Jazz Festival in November 2019, she was riding high on the critical acclaim surrounding her recently released debut album, The Oracle (International Anthem). A cosmic lightning bolt of free jazz, mutant funk, electronica and spoken word with an impact on a par with Samuel L. Jackson's reading of Ezekiel 25:17 in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, The Oracle confronts the ugliness ...
