Nicole Glover: First Record

Read "First Record" reviewed by Daniel Lehner

If for some reason Portland-native Nicole Glover's First Record ended up being her only one, she would still have made a lasting impact on the jazz world. The 24-year-old saxophonist's debut is an ambitious one that lays a lot on the table and seeks not only to establish her as a capable player, but a voice ...

Andrew D'Angelo: Story of the Living

Read "Andrew D'Angelo: Story of the Living" reviewed by Daniel Lehner

Nick Grinder: Ten Minutes

Read "Ten Minutes" reviewed by Daniel Lehner

It's a shame that more trombonists don't make records like the one 25-year-old Nick Grinder has. The instrument has long since proven its worth in bebop, post-bop and neo- bop, but few bone players have elected to exploit the instrument's unique timbre and music- making structure, not to mention writing music most conducive for it, in ...

Steven Lugerner: Jericho and San Francisco

Read "Steven Lugerner: Jericho and San Francisco" reviewed by Daniel Lehner

Eric Dolphy once mused, “When you hear music, after it's over, it's gone, in the air. You can never capture it again." Luckily for fellow multi-reedist Steve Lugerner, that's a piece of wisdom that the Bay Area musician did not take at face value. For his release, For We Have Heard, Lugerner devised a means of ...

Brian Landrus: The Low End Theory

Read "Brian Landrus: The Low End Theory" reviewed by Daniel Lehner

Specialists don't usually have the luxury of controlling much of their destiny. For a low woodwind expert like Brian Landrus, it would be of little surprise to anyone to find that, though he'd have the freedom to experiment with sounds and timbres for his own records, he would be little more than a hired gun for ...

David Fiuczynski: In the In Between

Read "David Fiuczynski: In the In Between" reviewed by Daniel Lehner

The most recent compositional premiere by guitarist David Fiucyznski has a title that almost manages to sum up his entire sphere of influence. “Flam! Pan-Asian Microjam for J Dilla and Olivier Messiaen" premiered at Berklee College of Music in 2012 and was inspired by a geographically and temporally enormous range of styles. Fiuczynski describes the piece ...
