Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet: The Sound Of Listening

Read "The Sound Of Listening" reviewed by Chris May


There is something tantalisingly out of reach on the Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet's The Sound Of Listening. It is not “difficult" music, but it is cryptic. After multiple replays the code remains unbroken. It seems something important is going on but... what exactly? It is rather like encountering Guiliana's fellow New Yorker, tenor saxophonist Oded Tzur for the first time. The music is not alien, but there is something deeply different about it. Coincidentally, Guiliana's pianist on ...

Mark Guiliana: Music for Doing

Read "Music for Doing" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski


With an album title like Music for Doing, drummer Mark Guiliana makes his aim clear. Few artists are as adept at fusing electronic music's warmth with intricate and propulsive rhythms propelled by intricacies of jazz improvisations as Guiliana. And he is really doing it. His music boundaries are infinitely elastic. Guiliana is a multifaceted artist who traverses many different music areas with his own bands or those led by others. This variety is evident on his own albums such as ...

Mark Guiliana: Jersey

Read "Jersey" reviewed by Geno Thackara


With an all-encompassing style that keeps him in high demand throughout the jazz world and beyond, perhaps it's unsurprising (if unfortunate) that Mark Guiliana boasts only a handful of titles to his own name. The middle of the 2010s saw him drumming in sessions with Dave Douglas or Avishai Cohen (among others) to briefly subbing with the equally inimitable Phronesis, leading up to 2017's live work and a festival appearance with the Donny McCaslin Group (the ensemble that was drafted ...

Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet: Jersey

Read "Jersey" reviewed by Troy Dostert


When it comes to the boundary-stretching spirit that has become so widespread among many of today's leading jazz musicians, drummer Mark Guiliana deserves credit for being one of the most enthusiastic embodiments of this attitude. He has a longstanding passion for electronic music, as heard especially on the releases on his own Beat Music label (2014's My Life Starts Now and Beat Music: The Los Angeles Improvisations). But his genuine love of rock must also be added to the equation: ...
