Read "Song of the Free Will" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Though Ra Kalam Bob Moses is known primarily for his uncanny and profound drumming skills, few realize that he has forged a unique and highly personal piano style in parallel with his efforts as a percussionist, composer and bandleader. Few remember his wonderful band Compost with that other ineffable drummer / pianist, Jack DeJohnette. Compost recorded ...

Laszlo Gardony: Life In Real Time

Read "Life In Real Time" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Josh Rosen – Stan Strickland: Instinct

Read "Instinct" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo disco ha una duplice essenza, antitetica solo in apparenza: la fattura, inappuntabile, ma sull'altro piatto della bilancia una sostanziale inutilità.

Laszlo Gardony: Signature Time

Read "Signature Time" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

As composer, Laszlo Gardony posits--without much opposition--that the inspiration of all modern music owes a debt to the “birthplace of culture and sound: Africa. As a composer and pianist he develops his hypothesis with Signature Time, an album of considerable and somewhat dark beauty. Driven by the percussive nature of African music--in almost continuous binary rhythms--Gardony's ...
