Influenzato in gioventù dai violinisti europei degli anni settanta --Jean-Luc Ponty, Zbigniew Seifert e Didier Lockwood --ha ampliato la sua prospettiva dal rock al jazz storico, ...

Jeff Berlin: Joe Frazier Round 3 (CD Single)

Read "Joe Frazier Round 3 (CD Single)" reviewed by John Kelman

In the world of music, there are plenty of “could have beens," but far fewer “should have beens." Count Jeff Berlin amongst the latter. The American electric bassist first made a number of marks in the second half of the musically innovative 1970s on a series of '76 recordings by singers Patti Austin and Esther Phillips, ...

Cecil Taylor: 1929-2018

Read "Cecil Taylor: 1929-2018" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

As he approached the age of ninety, Cecil Taylor could be excused for some of his indulgences. Still highly opinionated on a range of subjects; still chain smoking, still harboring old resentments, and so on. For a man from whom new ideas sprang constantly and effortlessly, Taylor could get stuck in real-world dramas. He had a ...

Hiromi: Hiromi & Edmar Castaneda Live In Montreal

Read "Hiromi & Edmar Castaneda Live In Montreal" reviewed by Jeff Winbush

Here's a good rule of thumb to consider when reviewing a jazz record and by that, I mean any jazz record. Jazz music is live music so if it sounds good in the studio will it sound even better on the stage? In other words, if you're willing to pay $50 for a ticket, you're probably ...

Beyond the Hubs

While jny: New Orleans, jny: Chicago, jny: Kansas City and jny: New York City were the incubators of modern jazz, they were by no means the only locations with an appetite for live music. Jazz artists whose point of origin could not sustain multiple venues ventured to locations near and far ...

Guitarist Joe Caro & The Met Band to release new recording “Every Dog Has His Day” (Innsbruck Records)

When you hear the cover songs on Joe Caro & the Met Band’s Every Dog Has His Day—classics from Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Carole King and one Great American Songbook standard—your first thought may very well be, I’ve never heard those songs played like that before! Then it occurs to you that the original compositions ...

Tom Guarna: The Wishing Stones

Read "The Wishing Stones" reviewed by John Kelman

An unfortunate reality for too many musicians--even those who are well-known--is that most of their audiences are aware of but a portion of their true work...their fullest capabilities. Recordings only tell part of the story, since artists often tour with groups that are never documented. And even those tours, for those fortunate enough to experience them, ...

Blaque Dynamite: Killing Bugs

Read "Killing Bugs" reviewed by Kevin Press

Child prodigies have been with us for hundreds of years. And yet they're still not fully understood. Loosely defined as anyone under age 10 who produces something an adult expert in that field would be proud to call his or her own, these rare kids don't always mature into greatness. For every Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and ...
