Igor Osypov Quartet: Dream Delivery

Read "Dream Delivery" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Igor Osypov's debut album, I (Unit Records, 2015), was quite promising in many ways. Yet, it was a snapshot of an artist still in the formative stages of the craft. Thus, the content of the Berlin-based plectrist's Dream Delivery came as a pleasant shock. Seemingly, within the past year, Osypov has taken prodigious strides towards staking ...

Fabio Delvò: Rastplatz

Read "Rastplatz" reviewed by Dave Wayne

I became aware of Fabio Delvo's music via his recordings with guitarist Jeff Platz. Platz has an ear for first-rate musicianship, and his recordings with lesser-known European musicians such as Delvo, Jan Klare, and Meinrad Kneer have been nothing short of revelatory. The title of Delvo's second album as a leader, Rastplatz, isn't a tribute to ...

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 ...

Fabio Delvò: Rastplatz

Read "Rastplatz" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Il sassofonista Fabio Delvò ha già lasciato più di una interessante testimonianza della sua arte dapprima con la militanza nella Flight Band di Biagio Coppa successivamente con i suoi progetti da leader (il disco DNA del 2012), e co-leader (il recente Differential Equations con il chitarrista americano Jeff Platz). Questo Rastplatz -area di sosta lungo le ...

Differential Equations: Jeff Platz / Kit Demos / Fabio Delvo / John McLellan

Read "Differential Equations: Jeff Platz / Kit Demos / Fabio Delvo / John McLellan" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Those drawn to free improvised music can attest to the appeal of the style: the constant flow of ideas and the crackling energy of instantaneous musical interactions. When an improvising band is “on," you know it. What you're hearing is the sound of others listening intently and responding in the moment. Heavily dependent on group chemistry, ...

Jeff Platz - Kit Demos - Fabio Delvò - John McLellan: Differential Equations

Read "Differential Equations" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Da una parte l'elettricità--la chitarra di Jeff Platz, il basso di Kit Demos--dall'altra la componente acustica--la batteria di John McLellan, il sax contralto di Fabio Delvò-. Che Differential Equations sia un album dai ruoli definiti e dalle sonorità equamente ripartite come ogni buona dimostrazione matematica?

Niente affatto perché le rasoiate, le tangenti alle ...

Klare / Platz / Kneer / Elgart: Modern Primitive

Read "Modern Primitive" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Steeped in various aspects of jazz tradition as much as it is on the cutting edge, the sonic territory covered by Modern Primitive is vast, to say the least. The music here, all freely improvised, has a warmth and immediacy that comes from intense, shared listening. Though there are no tunes or changes per se, that ...

Design 4 Music works closely with All About Jazz to help make it the ultra helpful jazz locus that it is. They have to be one of the few web shops mainly focused on making a solid web presence for a notably disadvantaged sub idiom, free jazz, and they do it beautifully. The recent launch of a site makeover for Boston area ...

Charlie Kohlhase Launches an Outpost 186 Exploration for February

After a dismal 2011, in which the Explorers Club only performed once, Boston's beloved cranky yankee polishes his battery of saxophones and follows the groundhog out of midwinter torpor. Over the course of the unrolling spring, saxophonist/composer Charlie Kohlhase will oversee mid month explorations in Inman Squares favorite back yard gallery, Outpost 186. Starting on Thursday, February 16th, a new line ...
