Andrew D'Angelo: Andrew D'Angelo & DNA Orchestra

Read "Andrew D'Angelo & DNA Orchestra" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Dopo quasi un decennio di attività, la DNA Orchestra di Andrew D'Angelo debutta con questo vulcanico album (al momento reperibile solo su Bandcamp) che raccoglie alcuni brani scritti dal leader e presentati in passati concerti. Dopo le drammatiche notizie del 2008 sulla salute del sassofonista (due interventi chirurgici per un tumore al cervello e una lunga terapia “alternativa" scelta da lui) fa piacere vederlo tornare in attività con quella forza d'urto che l'aveva imposto sulla scena di ...

Josh Roseman: Reimagining the Constellations

Read "Josh Roseman: Reimagining the Constellations" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke


Josh Roseman is a busy man. Extremely busy. He's also an extremely bright one, which is good because otherwise one might pause to consider whether, with all those activities, he is wearing himself too thin. Turns out he is spreading wide, but nothing about him or his many pursuits is thin. Especially not his creativity.Trombonist/composer/arranger/cosmic thinker Roseman also has a production studio and venue space in Brooklyn. He heads five bands that play different kinds of music, two ...

Josh Roseman: New Constellations: Live in Vienna

Read "New Constellations: Live in Vienna" reviewed by J Hunter


George Shearing called Don Drummond one of the world's top trombone players, and if the aggressive lines Josh Roseman take on New Constellations are any indication of Drummond's style, it's easy to see why Shearing paid him that compliment. A founding father of Ska, Drummond was as famous for his unique phrasing as he was for the hits he penned for the Skatalites, one of the genre's early super-groups. Roseman--whose mother is Jamaican--has played with groundbreakers like Dave Douglas, Steve ...

Josh Roseman: New Constellations: Live in Vienna

Read "New Constellations: Live in Vienna" reviewed by Troy Collins


Recorded in Vienna at Joe Zawinul's Birdland, trombonist Josh Roseman pays tribute to the legendary Skatalites' trombonist Don Drummond on New Constellations, a scorching live set that bustles with reggae, dub and electro-funk. The performance tapes were remixed in GoodandEvil's Brooklyn studio, endowing the album with additional layers of sonic detail that blur the line between live performance and studio manipulation.

Surpassing orthodox reinterpretations by embracing the polyphony of free jazz and the experimental studio remixing ...

Samo Salamon NYC Quintet: Government Cheese

Read "Government Cheese" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Chitarrista di origine slovena, frequentatore di club, musicisti ed etichette discografiche italiane, Samo Salamon sceglie per il suo secondo album targato Fresh Sound un quintetto altisonante, con alcuni dei nomi più significativi della scena newyorchese. Di fronte ad operazioni del genere la domanda sorge spontanea: sarà operazione di marketing, occasione unica di registrazione da cogliere al volo, meditato percorso artistico, o possibilità di confronto creativo? Di sicuro Government Cheese si rivela un ottimo CD, fresco, frizzante, ben suonato, con una ...

Josh Roseman Unit: Treats for the Nightwalker

Read "Treats for the Nightwalker" reviewed by AAJ Staff


The second record by Josh Roseman's Unit is constructed, piece by piece, from a massive collection of parts. The 23 players who participate in the extravaganza are for the most part well-recognized, accomplished musicians, which makes the disc all the more rich in anticipation. But oddly enough, solo space per se is generally contained, metered out in order to create just enough drama to render the music exciting.

Roseman's production was planned in meticulous detail during the trombonist's ...

Josh Roseman Unit: Treats for the Nightwalker

Read "Treats for the Nightwalker" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Trombonist Josh Roseman keeps winning that “Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" poll by Downbeat Magazine (2000, '01, 02). Treats for the Nightwalker, his second recording as a leader, should knock him out of contention for that award. He should get a bunch of recognition for this set. Treats for the Nightwalker is one of those uncategorizables: it's all over the place, with Roseman's sound drawing from seemingly everything he's heard. A member of the acclaimed Dave Holland Big Band, ...
