Kristina Barta: Endless Questions and Answers

Read "Endless Questions and Answers" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Czech pianist/composer Kristina Barta's Endless Questions and Answers opens on a rather ominous tone. Drummer Marek Urbánek plays on his toms a shadowy, esoteric rhythm. Tenor Jure Pukl flares in. Barta enters slowly, barely audible with bassist Peter Korman riding shotgun. But soon she controls the barely controllable rush that embodies “Breaking Through Some Border," the breakthrough opener to a fine, fine recording. Barta--a graduate from the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and a finalist in the ...

Jure Pukl: Broken Circles

Read "Broken Circles" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


Slovenian tenor saxophonist Jure Pukl follows up his quartet outings Hybrid (Whirlwind Recordings 2017) and Doubtless (Whirlwind Recordings 2018) with an album that signals a clear change of direction. On Broken Circles Pukl swaps his saxophonist wife Melissa Aldana for Joel Ross on vibraphone and adds guitarist Charles Altura for some lyrical comping, on top of a well-versed rhythm section. As a direct result, harmony and flow arise more implicitly, giving Pukl the ideal environment to perform long stretches of ...

Jure Pukl: Doubtless

Read "Doubtless" reviewed by Roger Farbey


Melissa Aldana guested on two tracks featured on Jure Pukl's previous album Hybrid (Whirlwind, 2017), so it's no surprise that she's been recruited again for Pukl's follow-up recording. However, taking a slightly different tack, the saxophonist has dispensed with a piano or any chordal instrument for this set. But having two front line tenor saxophones isn't a new thing in modern jazz. For example, Al Cohn and Zoot Sims did this on their 1960 album You 'N' Me (Mercury), albeit ...

Jure Pukl: EARchitecture

Read "EARchitecture" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza


Saxophonist and composer Juri Pukl is a man of many parts. He has ensconced himself in jazz, but he is also involved with pop, rock and hip hop. His compositions are strongly ingrained in the written note but he views a distant horizon as he and his band mates set out on the road to improvisation. All of this serves him well on EARchitecture.Pukl balances muscularity with gentleness on this well selected passel of tunes. As an improviser ...

Jure Pukl: The Long Run. Live Takes

Read "The Long Run. Live Takes" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Il giovane sassofonista sloveno Jure Pukl presenta in questa registrazione alcuni brani dal vivo alla testa di varie formazioni. Si tratta di tre improvvisazioni in trio con il batterista Howard Curtis e il percussionista Günther Meinhart, intervallate da due brani in quartetto con tromba senza pianoforte e dalla lunga “Fly!," in un quartetto classico con pianoforte. Le situazioni sono tutto sommato abbastanza diverse, ma accomunate da una cifra di jazz moderno molto libero ma espressivamente ben identificabile: non è un ...
