Aki Takase Japanic: Thema Prima

Read "Thema Prima" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Japanese pianist-composer Aki Takase might have agreed with Miles Davis when he said in a 1986 interview with Nick Kent for The Face: “just about everything sounds better these days. Even a car crash sounds better." For the brilliant collison of jazz and hip-hop that is Thema Prima bristles with sonic textures seemingly inspired by the ...

20 Years of One Man’s Jazz

Read "20 Years of One Man’s Jazz" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This show marks the 20th anniversary of One Man's Jazz which began its radio journey on May 1, 1999 at CKUW 95.9 FM in Winnipeg, eventually shifting to extraterrestrial Taint Radio in 2012. Rather than just play something from my favourite recording list for each of those twenty years (that was too easy), I decided to ...

Howard Riley: Live In The USA

Read "Live In The USA" reviewed by John Sharpe

This archival issue should further bolster British pianist Howard Riley's place among the top rank. Riley first came to prominence with the advent of his pioneering trio with bassist Barry Guy and various drummers including Tony Oxley, which extended yet further the egalitarian template first established by Bill Evans and Paul Bley. However Live In the ...

Atomic: Pet Variations

Read "Pet Variations" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Sentirli e vederli dal vivo è un'esperienza auspicabile e appagante, il palco è la dimensione ideale per rimandare all'ascoltatore tutta l'energia della loro musica, una miscela esplosiva di free jazz, avanguardia, funky, tradizione europea. Stiamo parlando degli Atomic tra i primi a ribellarsi alle sonorità di un jazz scandinavo marchiato ECM e diventati nel corso degli ...

Eric Dolphy: Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions

Read "Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions" reviewed by John Sharpe

This lovingly and lavishly packaged set reissues two of reedman Eric Dolphy's LPs along with outtakes from the two day 1963 sessions which yielded them, along with some unreleased later material on which Dolphy was a sideman.

Atomic: Pet Variations

Read "Pet Variations" reviewed by John Eyles

Formed in the spring of 2000, Scandinavian “supergroup" Atomic recorded and released their first album Feet Music (Jazzland) in 2001. The years since have been remarkably stable for the quintet; they have produced albums at an impressive rate of about a disc a year, including two collaborations with Ken Vandermark's School Days group. The only change ...

Paul Rogers / Olaf Rupp / Frank Paul Schubert: Three Stories About Rain Sunlight And The Soil

Read "Three Stories About Rain Sunlight And The Soil" reviewed by John Sharpe

It's always a pleasure to hear expat English bassist Paul Rogers, perhaps best known for his collaboration with reedman Paul Dunmall and the Mujician co-operative. This meeting with two stalwarts of the German improvised music scene in a Berlin studio imparts a particular delight. Guitarist Olaf Rupp boasts a healthy discography including performances with drummer Paul ...

Big in Japan, Part 3: Satoko Fujii’s Year of Living Dangerously

Read "Big in Japan, Part 3: Satoko Fujii’s Year of Living Dangerously" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In the first two parts of this series we looked at the origins of jazz in Japan and its adherence to the American style of composing, arranging and playing. Though jazz has been popular in Japan from the earliest days, it was--as in the United States--hardly met with unanimous approval in a country that prized classical ...

Alexander von Schlippenbach / Aki Takase: Live At Cafe Amores

Read "Live At Cafe Amores" reviewed by John Sharpe

The Lithuanian NoBusiness imprint has unearthed another gem from the vaults of the Japanese Chap Chap label. Live At Cafe Amores represents the third duet recording from the husband-and-wife pairing of pianists Alexander von Schlippenbach and Aki Takase, but the first where they share the same instrument. Such a situation was perhaps only possible for an ...

The Heat Death: The Glenn Miller Sessions

Read "The Glenn Miller Sessions" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La libera improvvisazione free vive e profilica nei paesi scandinavi e trova ospitalità nel catalogo della portoghese Clean Feed. Sotto il riferimento a Glenn Miller (accostamento più lontano e irriverente non si poteva trovare) il quintetto Heat Death presenta tre ore di musica legata alla free improvisation europea degli anni settanta. Per intenderci quella di Evan ...
