Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit.

Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

The Wrong Object: After the Exhibition

Read "The Wrong Object: After the Exhibition" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Sometime during the late 1960s, adventurous European rock musicians led by the likes of Gong, Soft Machine, Magma, and Arzachel began incorporating elements of avant-garde jazz, contemporary classical and various ethnic musics into their own original progressive rock music. The result varied somewhat from region to region, but the most important thing was that very little ...

The Wrong Object: After the Exhibition

Read "After the Exhibition" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Wrong Object is a Belgian band that has made significant inroads to accomplishing an exalted presence in the jazz-rock and progressive rock communities. The band's sound and strategy encompasses intermittent nods to the fabled British Canterbury progressive-rock scene with inferences to Frank Zappa and jazz-rock extrapolations akin to vintage Soft Machine. Toss in a few Albert ...

SH.TG.N: SH.TG.N

Read "SH.TG.N" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Before the 21st Century, the worlds of metal and jazz rarely, if ever, intersected. But that's all changed, so much so that musicians from both sides of the fence are rethinking their music, demolishing self-imposed genre boundaries and coming up with some truly innovative sounds. Belgium's SH.TG.N has the same sort of pioneering spirit. Yes, the ...

MoonJune Records: A Decade of Progressive Rock Documentation

Read "MoonJune Records: A  Decade of Progressive Rock Documentation" reviewed by Mark Redlefsen

On a moon of this past June, appropriately enough, Leonardo Pavkovic, owner of the progressive jazz label MoonJune Records, gave All About Jazz an interview at the label's office in Union Square, New York City. The name MoonJune Records, which Pavkovic started back in 2001, is taken from the title of a song, “Moon In June," ...

Al Orkestra: Where Are We Now?

Read "Where Are We Now?" reviewed by John Kelman

Sometimes the best music comes from the most unexpected places. British ex-pat Joe Higham has been living in Belgium for 20 years--first studying, now teaching and gigging with a cadre of undervalued Belgian players. Plenty of artists cite a collection of influences, but this saxophonist/clarinetist and his Al Orkestra concoct a truly wonderful mélange, with touchstones ...

The Wrong Object Come of Age

Read "The Wrong Object Come of Age" reviewed by Nic Jones

There's no risk of hyperbole in stating that The Wrong Object come of age over the course of these two discs. Platform One is the earlier of the two and it finds the band in febrile form in the company of esteemed guests trombonist Annie Whitehead and trumpeter Harry Beckett, two players whose efforts have over ...
