Dave Bryant: The Garden of Equilibria

Read "The Garden of Equilibria" reviewed by Dave Wayne

As one of the few keyboardists to perform and record with Ornette Coleman on a consistent basis, Dave Bryant stands alongside the likes of Geri Allen and Paul Bley. Yet, Bryant is not nearly as well-known. A Berklee graduate who studied privately with Coleman starting in 1983, Bryant's first appearance on record was with the trio ...

Flametet: A General History of Flame

Read "A General History of Flame" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Sotto il grazioso appellativo di Flametet, per un album dal titolo altrettanto intrigante, sono riuniti sei musicisti guidati dal bassista Kit Demos, tra i quali l'unico nome che ci era conosciuto (e apprezzato) è quello del pianista Pandelis Karayorgis, qui impegnato in qualità di ospite del quintetto, solo alle tastiere Wurlitzer. L'organico si muove soprattutto come ...

Tchicai - Kohlhase - Fewell - McBee - Hart: Tribal Ghost

Read "Tribal Ghost" reviewed by John Sharpe

Of all the collaborations in the later years of legendary reedman John Tchicai, some of the most fertile were in the company of guitarist Garrison Fewell, whether under the Dane's leadership like One Long Minute (NuBop, 2012) and Big Chief Dreaming (Soul Note, 2005) or in undocumented appearances with the guitarist's Variable Density Sound Orchestra. Joining ...

Charlie Kohlhase Launches an Outpost 186 Exploration for February

As a musician he has led his own bands including the imaginatively titled Dead Cat Bounce and has played with some of the finest including saxophonists Anthony Braxton and Lee Konitz, and percussionist Bobby Sanabria.

Dead Cat Bounce: Chance Episodes

Read "Chance Episodes" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Combining a supremely agile multi-reed quartet with a lithe rhythm section, Dead Cat Bounce is anything but moribund on its Cuneiform debut, Chance Episodes. The title is a bit of a misnomer as well, as the highly developed compositions--all written and arranged by saxophonist/woodwind multi-instrumentalist Matt Steckler--leave little to chance. Originally commissioned by Chamber Music America ...

Dead Cat Bounce: Chance Episodes

Read "Chance Episodes" reviewed by Andrew J. Sammut

Saxophonist/composer Matt Steckler mentions “remembering things anew," when describing the music he wrote for Chance Episodes. Dead Cat Bounce certainly “remembers" several influences on its fourth album, yet its members recollect via their own unique voices.

The Boston-based sextet munches on several speeds of hardboiled swing for “Food Blogger," with calypso beats sandwiched ...
