Hush Point: Hush Point III

Read "Hush Point III" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Hush Point è un quartetto cooperativo operante a New York che ha pubblicato un primo disco, omonimo, nel 2013 e un secondo l'anno successivo (Blues and Reds Sunnyside). In questo terzo capitolo conferma l'identità stilistica di fondo, che colloca la tensione sperimentale in un quadro espressivo di derivazione West Coast. Da quel composito universo musicale e ...

The Delmark Sound: Jason Stein Quartet and Corey Dennison Band

Read "The Delmark Sound: Jason Stein Quartet and Corey Dennison Band" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Delmark Records has been a jny: Chicago institution for better than 60 years, most under the watchful eye of founder Bob Koester. The label remains the oldest jazz and blues record label operating in the United States. Like its fabled successor, ECM, the label sports a sonic world all its own. While an odd comparison, any ...

Jason Stein Quartet: Lucille

Read "Lucille" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jason Stein continues to curve a niche in the jazz world, but it's not what you might assume. Listeners straightaway assume that he is an idiosyncratic outlier because his sole instrument is the bass clarinet. We've grown accustomed to saxophonists like Eric Dolphy and David Murray doubling on the bass clarinet. Stein's constancy to this one ...

Guy Mintus Trio: A Home In Between

Read "A Home In Between" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Although he's only 25, pianist Guy Mintus has already forged a musical vision well beyond his years. And he's got sensational chops to match it, as A Home In Between makes clear. It's an outstanding piano trio disc, with a compelling hybrid of styles that includes bop, classical and Israeli and Eastern European folk influences. There ...

Tomoko Omura: Post Bop Gypsies

Read "Post Bop Gypsies" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Think about your favorite jazz violinist. Now think about what style or sub-category of jazz that person would most easily fall into. Was your answer bebop? Probably not, I would venture to guess. It's not that I know your answer. This isn't a magic trick. For all I know it could've been Stéphane Grappelli, Jenny Scheinman, ...

Art Pepper: Presents “West Coast Sessions” Volumes 3 & 4

Read "Art Pepper: Presents “West Coast Sessions” Volumes 3 & 4" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Today is the day that I finally come clean about Art Pepper and me. In 1984, I was taking a year off between having finished Pharmacy School and beginning a graduate program in Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Design. During this time, I had my yearly eye appointment with my ophthalmologist, one Dr. A. Henry Thomas, with ...

Caroline Davis

Read "Caroline Davis" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

After honing her skills on the jny: Chicago scene, Caroline Davis has rapidly established herself as an in-demand musician and educator in jny: New York, where she moved in 2013, and internationally. Her debut album, Live Work & Play, was featured on All About Jazz's best releases. The leader or co-leader of several interesting projects, ranging ...

Maryanne DeProphetis: Tell A Star

Read "Tell A Star" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La ricerca vocale minimalista e astratta di Maryanne de Prophetis è troppo sofisticata per ottenere l'attenzione del grande pubblico ma mantiene un'audience affezionata nei club di New York City. Dal 2002 guida il trio col pianista Frank Kimbrough e il trombettista Ron Horton con cui ha pubblicato due dischi, A Glance nel 2005 e Lilacs in ...

Warne Marsh: Oct. 1987

On Sunday, October 18, 1987, Warne Marsh was leading a quartet at a San Francisco concert. The performance was held just two months before the cool-jazz tenor saxophonist would collapse and die of a heart attack on stage at Donte's in North Hollywood at age 60. Backing Marsh in San Francisco was Larry Koonse (g), Seward McCain ...

Lee Konitz: Frescalalto

Read "Frescalalto" reviewed by Luca Canini

Lo sfizio del primo disco su Impulse! se l'è tolto alla soglia dei novanta, ennesima tappa di una carriera che per raccontarla non basterebbero due Treccani con relative appendici. Una vita in jazz come poche ce ne sono state, e come mai più (forse) ce ne saranno, quella di Lee Konitz.

Dagli esordi ...
