November Music 2016

Read "November Music 2016" reviewed by Henning Bolte

November Music
s'Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands
November 11-13, 2016

November Music is a yearly festival, founded in 1993. It is held in the medieval town of s'-Hertogenbosch, in the southeast part of The Netherlands. s'-Hertogenbosch (also called Den Bosch) was the hometown of well-known Dutch painter Jheronimus Bosch (1450-1516) who died 500 years ...

Mats Eilertsen: Rubicon

Read "Rubicon" reviewed by John Kelman

It's no news to learn that we're the confluence of our many experiences: life, love, music....everything that we are comes from where we've been, what we've done, what we've experienced. That said, it doesn't mean that we can't move in completely new directions or try something completely foreign to us. Still, it's almost impossible to do ...

Wolfert Brederode Trio: Black Ice

Read "Black Ice" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Dutch pianist Wolfert Brederode returns to a piano trio format after the quartet albums Currents (ECM, 2007) and Post Scriptum (ECM, 2011). Not only a trio, but also new playing partners in bassist Gulli Gudmundsson and drummer Jasper van Hulten. While there's no radical stylistic shift with the new band--it's still mainly about mood and atmosphere--new ...

Batik: Headland

Read "Headland" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Batik may be a relatively new group but there's a natural chemistry in this debut recording that is the result of long years playing together in a variety of contexts. The genesis of the group dates back to Joost Lijbaart and Wolfert Brederode's duo collaborations, which began in 2005 and the pair are also part of ...

Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet: Desire

Read "Desire" reviewed by Ian Patterson

It's been three years since the Yuri Honing Quartet's True (Challenge Records, 2012), a sumptuous all-acoustic affair that was in stark contrast to the powerful, duel electric guitar-driven Wired Paradise. That particular group hasn't recorded since White Tiger (Jazz in Motion Records, 2010), though the retrospective compilation North Sea Jazz Legendary Concerts (Bob City, 2013) captured ...

Mathias Eick: Midwest

Read "Mathias Eick: Midwest" reviewed by John Kelman

Having first emerged on ECM Records, garnering significant attention for his work with fellow Norwegian, guitarist Jacob Young (2004's Evening Falls), and Finish pianist/harpist Iro Haarla (2006's Northbound), it seemed only a matter of time before trumpeter Mathias Eick would get the opportunity to start releasing albums of his own for the label. But if the ...

Gjertrud Lunde: Hjemklang

Read "Hjemklang" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Music is a language that speaks in several tongues. This statement is taken quite literally on Norwegian songstress Gjertrud Lunde's album Hjemklang where she sings in her own native language, as well as English, Norwegian, French and Portuguese.

Each language is a new instrument for Lunde, a range of vocal possibilities, shades and ...

Arve Henriksen: The Nature of Connections

Read "Arve Henriksen: The Nature of Connections" reviewed by John Kelman

Few artists could call an album The Nature of Connections with as much veracity as Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen. There's been the myriad of collaborations on his own albums--just a small handful of the contributors to recordings including Places of Worship (Rune Grammofon, 2013), Cartography (ECM, 2008), Strjon (Rune Grammofon, 2007) and Chiaroscuro (Rune Grammofon, 2004) ...

Susanne Abbuehl: The Gift

Read "Susanne Abbuehl: The Gift" reviewed by John Kelman

There was a time when artists were expected to release a record every year--sometimes a very good thing, as there was so much development going on that there was plenty to document; other times a less-than-ideal situation, as some artists simply didn't have that much music in them, so releasing albums too frequently often worked against--rather ...
