Read "Ma De Re Sha" reviewed by Geno Thackara

From the first glance at his debut album, Rahul Mukerji makes clear that one of his chief qualities is an open mind. The cover reflects both sides of his background (born in India and now based in the eastern US) and the music within follows suit. His expressive guitar playing through Ma De Re Sha demonstrates ...

Marbin: Goat Man & The House of the Dead

Read "Goat Man & The House of the Dead" reviewed by Dave Wayne

It's truly been fun to watch Marbin grow and develop over the past few years. Their eponymous, self- released debut album, from way back in 2009, was a duet affair with the two principals--saxophonist Danny Markovitch and guitarist Dani Rabin--plying their talents on a clutch of brief and very intricate instrumentals. Sounding at times like an ...

Read "Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched in the Mouth" reviewed by Vic Albani

Charlie Hunter chi? Ah quello che suona “strano"? Sì... proprio bravo.

Può essere un buon incipit per far conoscere a chi non lo dovesse avere mai incontrato in concerto o su disco (almeno alle nostre latitudini e anche visto che i negozi di dischi sono ormai una rarità che si fa fatica a trovarne ...

Read "Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess" reviewed by John Kelman

Marbin: Aggressive Hippies

Read "Aggressive Hippies" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Far from being just another jazz-rock fusion band, Marbin occupies their own stylistic space. More an instrumental rock band than a jazz fusion band, Marbin's music seems to come from the guitar hero world of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Joe Bonamassa. But there's a good deal of other stuff going on in their music. Steeped ...

With only four records released as a leader on ECM, it may seem a little early to release a “best of" disc for drummer Manu Katché. But having since moved on to fellow German label ACT for Live in Concert, while Touchstone for Manu is only being released in North America in the summer of 2015, ...
