Read "Relight" reviewed by John Sharpe

Aki Takase: In The River's Flow

Read "Aki Takase:  In The River's Flow" reviewed by Ian Patterson

After forty plus years of recording and touring Aki Takase could be forgiven for easing up a little, for pulling back on the reins. Instead, the Japanese pianist/composer's creative fire is burning as strongly as ever. Since turning seventy in 2018, Takase has released five albums--four in 2019 alone. This output of creative energy showcases the ...

Brötzmann / Schlippenbach / Bennink: Fifty Years After...

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.

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 ...
