Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Read "Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology" reviewed by Duncan Heining

My intention here is to offer a detailed but inevitably incomplete chronology of poetry and jazz. The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music. My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and ...

Joseph Daley, solista eccellente di tuba ed eufonio (ma anche di trombone a pistoni), si mise in luce per l'agilità e la precisione del suo contributo, in ...

Read "Portraits: Wind, Thunder and Love" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Getting To Know Ras Moshe

Read "Getting To Know Ras Moshe" reviewed by Dom Minasi

Ras Moshe is not a name most people are familiar with. If you listen to straight ahead jazz you probably wouldn't know Ras. Now if you go to some of the 'downtown' performances in New York City and Brooklyn you probably have seen him play. I heard him ten years ago playing Tenor Sax at the ...

Untempered Ensemble - Untempered Ensemble (2011)

Bill Cole, a multicultural multi-instrumentalist, is one of the guys at the top of the hierarchy in the improvised music scene, having been at it in earnest since at least the late 70s. Earlier this year I marveled at his mastery of Eastern reed instruments in his one-on-one with violinist Billy Bang, in what proved to ...

Joseph Daley Earth Tones Ensemble: The Seven Deadly Sins

Read "The Seven Deadly Sins" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The Seven Deadly Sins comprises some of the most monumental music to have been composed and recorded in quite some time. Significantly, this does not only refer to the seven-part suite of the title, but also the second track “Ballade of the Fallen African Warrior," another extended piece with multiple sections. Joseph Daley, master of the ...
