Phantom Station
The Stone at The New School

The Stone is pulling its shutters down for the last time, come the close of 2017. John Zorn's excellent Alphabet City corner venue has spent 12 years being an uncompromising centre for questioning music, but its mastermind has now ...

The soul of Gato Libre, and the glue that holds numerous global jazz orchestras together, are in the musical and personal partnership that has mastered creative music in a variety of formations and settings.

Angelica Sanchez: Float The Edge

Read "Float The Edge" reviewed by John Sharpe

Pianist Angelica Sanchez has become an in demand side person since her move to NYC from Arizona in 1995, performing with Wadada Leo Smith, Tony Malaby, Kevin Norton, Harris Eisenstadt, and Susie Ibarra, among many others. But her own leadership discography remains slighter than might be expected. Surprisingly Float The Edge represents her first entry as ...

The Politics of Dancing: Jazz and Protest, Part 2

Read "The Politics of Dancing: Jazz and Protest, Part 2" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Part 1 of Jazz and Protest took an in-depth look at two landmark artists and the songs that laid the groundwork for protest within the jazz community. Billie Holiday's “Strange Fruit" took a circuitous route from its origins as a poem to its successful recording on a small label that was not afraid to lend a ...

David S. Ware/Matthew Shipp: Live in Sant’Anna Arresi, 2004

Read "Live in Sant’Anna Arresi, 2004" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Describing David S. Ware as a maverick would be a gimmicky shortcut around the depth of the late saxophonist's vision. Outside of John Coltrane we have not seen a Ware contemporary with more depth of spirituality, presented in such a visceral way. Similarly, Matthew Shipp employs a type of unimaginable creative mysticism that transcends technique and ...

David S. Ware/Matthew Shipp: Live in Sant'Anna Arresi 2004

Read "Live in Sant'Anna Arresi 2004" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In every mystical film we see, like A Sea Of Trees and A Dog's Purpose or book we read--A Sudden Light by Garth Stein or Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, the departed find a way to communicate with the living. As humans, we desire this experience. Fortunately, music affords us this opportunity at just about ...

Pauline Oliveros & Connie Crothers: Live At the Stone

Read "Live At the Stone" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Connie Crothers passed away in August of 2016; an accomplished composer, improviser and pianist, she was not nearly as well-known as she should have been for someone whose talent attracted musical partnerships with Max Roach and Lennie Tristano. Despite playing everywhere from the downtown scene, to Carnegie Hall, to Europe's music halls, her refusal to run ...

John Zorn: Flaga Plays Masada Book Two

Read "Flaga Plays Masada Book Two" reviewed by Luca Canini

Da un pezzo ormai ho rinunciato a seguire da vicino i passi di John Zorn. Troppa fatica stare appresso con puntualità e dedizione alla logorrea discografica del signor Tzadik. Maestro dell'elusione e dell'evanescenza che ha trasformato il catalogo della propria etichetta in una dedalica sala degli specchi (In the Hall of Mirrors forse non a caso ...
