Jochen Rueckert: With Best Intentions

Read "With Best Intentions" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

This stellar sixth album from Jochen Rueckert extends on some musical friendships while offering a fresh format and new palette. Having previously delivered his notable Introduction (Lipstick-Jazzline, 1998) some 25 years ago, greased the grooves on an appealing organ trio session with guests, and drawn notice with guitar-driven gusto on several quartet dates, this German-born, New York-based drummer-of-note now shifts focus and finds success with a chordless quintet.   After developing a renewed interest in more open-ended ...

Liner Notes

David Binney: Barefooted Town

Read "David Binney: Barefooted Town" reviewed by Josef Woodard

Continuing Saga of the Strong Seeker I remember distinctly during the 2007 Montreal Jazz Festival, sifting through and measuring up the usual blur of stimuli, seeking out the prizes among prizes in the program. In one corner, there was Wayne Shorter, in the finest of his performance I'd ever heard—playing up his suits as composer and soloist by meshing his free-wheeling quartet and the score-heeding Imani Winds. And then, in another corner, as part of the late night haunt of ...

Jason Palmer: Live From Summit Rock In Seneca Village

Read "Live From Summit Rock In Seneca Village" reviewed by Jack Bowers

With Covid-19 generally having had its way in recent years, shuttering many venues at which jazz musicians were accustomed to performing, it is a pleasure to hear an actual concert with a real live audience--even if the group is a piano-less quartet striving to hold its listeners' interest through five extended numbers whose collective playing time is over an hour. Trumpeter Jason Palmer's ensemble was recorded outdoors in May 2021 at the historic Seneca Village site in New York City's ...

Jason Palmer: Live From Summit Rock In Seneca Village

Read "Live From Summit Rock In Seneca Village" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It must have been a feeling of great happiness and triumph in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic for musicians to actually perform for an audience. A live, in-person audience that is, not a Zoom session from a home studio. That joyous feeling is quite evident on Jason Palmer's Live From Summit Rock in Seneca Village recorded in May of 2021 in Central Park. This release is the trumpeter's third for Giant Step Arts and his fifth with ...

Tigran Hamasyan: Stand Art

Read "Stand Art" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Many jazz pianists start out by playing tunes from the standard pop and jazz repertoires before tackling their own compositions. Tigran Hamasyan has gone in the opposite direction. He has been recording original works and traditional Armenian songs since 2005. Now, on his eleventh album, he finally gets around to playing American standards. Hamasyan leads a trio here with Matt Brewer on bass and Justin Brown on drums, occasionally helped out by tenor saxophonists Mark Turner and Joshua ...

Benoît Delbecq 4: Gentle Ghosts

Read "Gentle Ghosts" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Quando ci capita di incontrare, discograficamente parlando, il pianista francese Benoît Delbecq, cinquantasei anni il prossimo giugno, non rimaniamo mai delusi, e questo suo ultimo lavoro, inciso a Parigi nel settembre 2019, non fa eccezione. Vi è all'opera il suo oliatissimo, efficientissimo quartetto, cui il tenore di Mark Turner dà la sua classica impronta, diafana, sorniona, vigorosamente pensosa (un contrasto in termini? e perché mai?), cui il parterre che lo affianca, anche grazie alla puntualità strutturale di ...
