Larry Grenadier: The Gleaners

Read "The Gleaners" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Bassist Larry Grenadier has a most impressive resume: multiple recordings with Herbie Mann, Paul Motian, Charles Lloyd, trumpeter/brother Phil Grenadier, vocalist/wife Rebecca Martin, Chris Potter, Joshua Redman, Jamie Saft, and many others. His brand has long been enhanced by his stellar work with Pat Metheny and a twenty-plus-year association with Brad Mehldau. It's not surprising that ...

His early association with Paul Bley and a broad range of influences and interests have resulted in a harvest of creative music that shapes unexpected hybrids. Here we have a drummer-less trio for the first twelve tracks ...

John Stein: Color Tones

Read "Color Tones" reviewed by Jack Bowers

On Color Tones, his ninth album for Boston's Whaling City Sound label, Kanas City-bred guitarist John Stein has chosen a quintet whose front line includes trumpeter Phil Grenadier and flute specialist Fernando Brandao. All tones considered, it's a splendid idea, as Grenadier and Brandao blend well with Stein's lucent, well-groomed guitar, while bassist John Lockwood and ...

Adam Berenson / Scott Barnum: Penumbra

Read "Penumbra" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Not one to be tethered to genres or styles, pianist and composer Adam Berenson has been long at home as a jazz pianist, a classical composer, an electronics player or any permutation of those roles. His previous double-CD Lumen (Dream Play, 2014)--complete with two string quartets--was indeed a far-ranging collection of styles and genres that the ...

Bruno Råberg/Phil Grenadier/Allan Chase: For The Unknown

Read "For The Unknown" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Bassist Bruno Raberg returns with three-quarters of the quartet from last year's acclaimed Hot Box (Orbis Music, 2015). This outing was based on free improvisations (with extensive electronic sound design by Råberg)--it could be seen as an extension of the two collective improvisations on the previous album. No drums this time, just trumpeter Phil Grenadier, saxophonist ...

Bruno Raberg: For The Unknown

Read "For The Unknown" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Bassist Bruno Raberg's artistry sounds as if it would be a good fit for ECM Records. His music has a drifting elasticity; space is an important component; and his muse has introduced him to electronic sound design--an approach that the Swedish-born, and now Boston-based, performer has embraced.

Raberg's sound is unique. Over the course ...

Jerry Bergonzi: Rigamaroll

Read "Rigamaroll" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

In Jerry Bergonzi c'è piena coerenza tra concezione esistenziale e artistica. Il sassofonista è convinto della profonda relazione che lega tutte le cose, riconosce il valore della tradizione e la sua musica si rapporta ad essa in piena consapevolezza.
Entro questa cornice ha sviluppato un modo personale di suonare --armonico, ritmico e timbrico-che è ...
