The Branford Marsalis Quartet: The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul

Read "The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul" reviewed by Doug Collette

Anyone who's seen the Branford Marsalis Quartet in concert is well aware of what high-flying improvisations the group can embark upon. But the foursome's abandoned approach hardly precludes due emphasis on structure---how better to highlight it than leave it behind?--which is also why this band makes studio albums as trenchant as The Secret Between the Shadow ...

Pat Metheny: Driving Forces

Read "Pat Metheny: Driving Forces" reviewed by Ian Patterson

It's been five years since Pat Metheny was last interviewed by All About Jazz, a not inconsiderable period of time in any working musician's life and particularly in one quite as prolific as the Missouri guitarist/composer. At the time, Metheny was promoting his Unity Band featuring Chris Potter, Ben Williams and Antonio Sánchez. His unconcealed enthusiasm ...

Branford Marsalis Quartet with Special Guest Kurt Elling: Upward Spiral

Read "Upward Spiral" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Sembra che Branford Marsalis continui ad avere John Coltrane come stella polare nell'orientarsi in una luminosa maturità artistica. E come il maestro che, nel bel mezzo di un turbinoso oltrepassamento del linguaggio specifico del jazz, piazzava due disorientanti album di canzoni (i peraltro magnifici John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman e Ballads), così Branford interrompe l'intensa progressione ...
