There's a continued look at 2019 favourites in this edition (the entire first segment, then random thereafter), but some new releases have filtered in as well: drummer Jeff Davis and a great band debut The Fastness, while clarinetist Aaron Novik continues a string of new albums, and one of the premier avant-garde trios--George Graewe, Ernst Reijseger ...

John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019" reviewed by John Sharpe

There's sometimes a backlash against picking the year's best albums. Understandably so when it entails pitting one honest artistic endeavour against another. Best to view the selections as a chance to pick up on something that you might otherwise have missed. As a listener I always look forward to the annual year end lists for precisely ...

Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz

Read "Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Two rather contrasting recordings highlight this episode: Dan Weiss with his trio augmented by a second bassist and Rubberband, the once-shelved and now revived release from Miles Davis which was recorded after he had left Columbia. On Weiss' album, he displays the chops (often with heavy rock influences) that make him such a high-in-demand player, while ...

Trio Treats

Read "Trio Treats" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode is dominated by trios, perhaps the most popular format in jazz today. Steve Lehman's new The People I Love debuts (with the addition of the formidable pianist Craig Taborn), definitely a must-hear for 2019. Golden Valley Is Now reunites Taborn with Dave King and Reid Anderson (they all grew up together), while another threesome ...

This is also true of saxophonist Stephen Gauci, the coordinator of a music series at the Bushwick ...

Read "Beyond All Things" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Saxophonist Stephen Gauci has begun to document some of the weekly concerts he curates at the Bushwick Public House in Brooklyn, New York. Although brief, this session of a single, 29-minute track packs a satisfying punch to the solar plexus. Led by guitarist Chris Welcome (of the Lisa Mezzacappa Trio, David McDonnell Group and Weasel Walter), ...
