Read "Ain't Nothing But a Cyber Coup & You" reviewed by Troy Dostert

One of the living legends of the acoustic bass, a relentless innovator and fearsome composer, Mark Dresser has spent decades at the forefront of creative jazz.

The Art Ensemble of Chicago: We Are On The Edge: A 50th Anniversary Celebration

Read "We Are On The Edge: A 50th Anniversary Celebration" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Seventy plus recordings and fifty years since the inception of The Art Ensemble Of Chicago. I mean the Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble, its original name.

Nicole Mitchell: Maroon Cloud

Read "Maroon Cloud" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un quartetto alquanto anomalo, di stampo sostanzialmente cameristico, ripreso dal vivo al National Sawdust di Brooklyn a fine marzo 2017, cuce insieme quest'ambizioso lavoro commissionato a Nicole Mitchell da John Zorn e dedicato ai maroon (in italiano cimarroni), cioè quei gruppi di africani deportati (o loro discendenti) che a partire dal sedicesimo secolo, in particolare nei ...

Matthew Shipp Announces Presidential Campaign

Read "Matthew Shipp Announces Presidential Campaign" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I like to think about Matthew Shipp's music in the same light as that of Eric Dolphy and Charlie Parker. If both artists, Bird and Dolphy, had the level of support from critics and listeners that they currently command while they were still alive, the pair would have been wealthy.
