Jeff Platz

Jeff Platz, New York, Boston area guitarist composer, has toured extensively for the past decade throughout the U.S. and Europe. He has performed in various music festivals worldwide such as New York City’s What is Jazz? festival, the Heidelberg jazz festival, Amsterdam Crossing Borders festival, the Munster International Jazz festival in Munster Germany and most recently the Bia Jazz Festival in Milan Italy. The Berlin based music journalist Wolf Kampmann writes, “Platz’s music is generous although never accidental. The secret of its uninhibited quality lies more in Platz’s playful use of the familiar where intuition, feeling, and memory are the most important navigational instruments”

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 ...
