Noah Haidu: Momentum

Read "Momentum" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

A quick glance at the monochrome photo that adorns the cover of Momentum could lead to the impression that the pianist is George Gershwin. It isn't, of course, it's Noah Haidu and this is his second album as leader. Any similarities between Haidu and Gershwin end with the shadowy cover shot--Haidu most definitely looks to more ...

Read "R.J. DeLuke's  Best Releases of 2011" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

It's that time again--a reluctant glance at some fine records. Take with two grains of salt... a pint of ale and two fingers of Wild Turkey ain't a bad idea either ...

The annual process of selecting any list of “best" for the year is a precarious endeavor, especially in music where one man's Miles ...

Read "Noah Haidu: Carving Out His Place" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

New York-based pianist Noah Haidu came to jazz through the blues, listening to the searing, soulful guitar moans of Buddy Guy and Albert King. But his training, at the age of six, had its advent in classical music. He also likes to experiment with electronics.

All these things go into the musical blender of ...

Noah Haidu: Slipstream

Read "Slipstream" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

What do slipstreams and music have in common? The simple answer is: flow. While some genres have turned their back on the idea of letting each piece of music flow in its own unique way, subscribing instead to digital quantizing and beat perfection, jazz isn't one of them. On his appropriately titled debut, Slipstreams, pianist Noah ...


Native Soul: Soul Step

Read "Soul Step" reviewed by Greg Simmons

Native Soul Soul Step is a stylistically coherent and well executed effort. The quartet--a classic keyboards, saxophone, bass and drums lineup--plays mostly straight-ahead, but adds enough instrumental and musical variation to keep it fresh throughout.

Keyboardist Noah Haidu is the collective's founder, and is the source of a good portion of the music's diversity. ...
