Chick & Steve, Two Pairs of Covers, Wordplay & More

Read "Chick & Steve, Two Pairs of Covers, Wordplay & More" reviewed by Marc Cohn

Putting a show together, I sometimes amuse myself by posing programmatic 'problems' that help break my usual routines. To wit: we offer you two pairs of disparate covers of Wayne Shorter and Thelonious Monk tunes during the first hour and play word games with tune titles in the second hour.

Honey Ear Trio: Swivel

Read "Swivel" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The opening track of Allison Miller's new Honey Ear Trio recording, “Arby," had me singing the lyrics to “Heavy Metal Drummer," the 2002 Wilco hit song ..."She fell in love with the drummer/Another and another/She fell in love/I miss the innocence I've known/Playing KISS covers, beautiful and stoned." That connection is made from the heavy, maybe ...

Honey Ear Trio: Steampunk Serenade

Read "Steampunk Serenade" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

L'iniziale “Matter of Time" ha il sapore del buon vecchio jazz che fu, una ballad voluttuosa con il sax tenore dalla voce calda e sensuale che fa sognare incontri da "mille e una notte".

Gutbucket: Cascades and Collisions

Read "Gutbucket: Cascades and Collisions" reviewed by Gordon Marshall

Over its 12-year career, Gutbucket has resituated its various musical parts like the pieces of a Rubik's cube. The elements of that cube, the sonic strains, have remained similar--an amalgam of fuzz rock, jumpy jazz, post-serial classicism--but its panoply of shifting color has been redeployed in unique ways on each of the Brooklyn-based quartet's five CDs, ...

Honey Ear Trio - Steampunk Serenade (2011)

By S. Victor Aaron Listening to Allison Miller's superb CD from last year Boom Tic Boom, I appreciated how it covered a lot of ground within advanced modern jazz, helped along by such sympathetic supporting players in this piano jazz trio. But that album still left me wondering where this ace drummer, composer and bandleader was going ...

Honey Ear Trio - Steampunk Serenade (Foxhaven Records, 2011) ****

By Paul Acquaro The Steampunk literary genre essentially imagines a present informed by Victorian sensibilities and driven by steam technology. Imagine though, just for a moment, another alternate present in which popular music is not shaped by lowest common denominator tastes and gobs of derivative schmear. What do you hear? For me, the top forty slots are pretty much dominated by ...
