Dave Rempis: Stringers & Struts

Read "Stringers & Struts" reviewed by John Sharpe


Chicago-based reedman Dave Rempis has hit such a peak of consistency that the number of stars awarded to any particular outing is more down to personal preference than any variation in quality. He's in control of his own destiny as most of his output flows from his own Aerophonic imprint. And he's achieved another high point with Stringers And Struts, the result of a one-off gathering of Windy City improvisers in town for the 2019 Chicago Jazz Fest, which makes ...

Rempis/Parker/Flaten/Cunningham: Stringers & Struts

Read "Stringers & Struts" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Imagine if the listener could choose bands or combinations of musicians like a fantasy football game. They would compile discographies and note when certain players crossed paths, or imagine new combinations of dissimilar styles.

Jeremy Cunningham Quartet: re : dawn (from far)

Read "re : dawn (from far)" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Le presenze di Jeff Parker, storico chitarrista di Tortoise, e di Matt Ulery, contrabbassista e band leader tra i più interessanti e richiesti dell'ultima generazione, alimentava grandi aspettative riguardo l'album di debutto da leader di Jeremy Cunningham, promettente batterista della nuova scena di Chicago. Non che Re: Dawn (From Far) sia un album mediocre ma la sensazione che si riveli un'occasione mancata è difficile da scacciare. Vi è un'indubbia ricerca sul suono e sulle combinazioni timbriche tra ...
