Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet

Read "Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Squakk: Willisau & Berlin

Read "Willisau & Berlin" reviewed by John Sharpe

Four Germans combine for a set that recalls some of the classic Anthony Braxton quartet sides with George Lewis or Ray Anderson from the 1970s. Common ground abounds in their free-bop structures and the delightful interplay as between reeds and trombone as they slip in and out of both tunes and time. There are also other ...

Read "Flex Bent Braam: Lucebert" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The new group of Dutch pianist Michiel Braam, the 8-piece Flex Bent Braam, is a scaled-down continuation of Braam's 13-piece Bik Bent Braam, one of Braam's main projects in the last twenty five years, a group that evolved from traditional big band to a flexible improvising unit, but it is also an attempt to challenge his ...

Frank Gratkowski Quartet: Le Vent et la Gorge

Read "Le Vent et la Gorge" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Multi-reedman Frank Gratkowski is a shrewd operator from almost all conceivable angles. And on Le Vent et la Gorge, the stylizations of drummer Gerry Hemingway's fabled quartet weave in and out of the full spectrum. Of course, this component is factored in by the drummer's appearance along with Hemingway's longtime band-mate, Dutch trombonist Wolter Wierbos, lending ...
