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.

Maryanne DeProphetis: Tell A Star

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.

The Brian Dickinson Quintet: The Rhythm Method

Read "The Rhythm Method" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Toronto-based pianist Brian Dickinson explores the “quintet with a two sax front line" on The Rhythm Method. He takes his lead from the somewhat overlooked pianist/conceptualist Lennie Tristano, who broke the ground with his historic 1949 Capitol Sessions featuring Lee Konitz on alto sax and Warne Marsh on tenor sax; and with his 1956 recordings with ...
