Ivan Baryshnikov Quartet: Journey

Read "Journey" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Capturing his East-to-West life trajectory, Russian saxophonist Ivan Baryshnikov's debut Journey documents his path through the jazz world via his origins in Moscow, an intervening stay in the Netherlands, and his ultimate arrival in New York, the end-point of his travels (for now). It's a well-conceived set of ten original pieces, with a convincing display of ...

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 ...

Phillip Brandon Crosses Musical Boundaries On Sunny New Ep

With the spring melting the icy chill of winter, the self-titled EP of Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Phillip Brandon delivers an appropriately sunny ambience, feel-good vibrations pulsing through an electrifying powder keg of funk, jazz, and R&B.

Joelle Leandre - India Cooke: Journey

Read "Journey" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nel percorso musicale della contrabbassista francese Joelle Leandre le incisioni in duo rappresentano una “voce" di tutto rilievo che merita particolare attenzione.

Joelle Leandre / India Cooke: Journey

Further swelling the ranks, ...

Thematically, the eight tunes can readily be viewed as representing such a journey--but it is equally successful in evoking a single day's walk through a beautiful and mysterious landscape, with Meier's band members as fellow travelers.

Nicolas Meier: Journey

Read "Journey" reviewed by Chris May

Turkish music and jazz make compatible bedfellows, so it's curious that congress takes place so infrequently outside Turkey. In the late 1950s, pianist Dave Brubeck combined Turkish 9/8 rhythm patterns with classical rondo form and the blues to create “Blue Rondo A La Turk" on Time Out (Columbia, 1959). In the 1980s, Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel ...
