David Murray Octets on Black Saint

Read "David Murray Octets on Black Saint" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Younger jazz fans may be only dimly acquainted with the Italian record labels Black Saint and Soul Note, but during their prime in the 1980s both labels released jazz that was adventuresome and challenging without losing touch with tradition. As such, the imprints offered a compelling middle way between the major label output of the time ...

Aki Takase: Cherry ‎– Sakura

Read "Cherry ‎– Sakura" reviewed by John Sharpe

Twenty three years after their first studio date Blue Monk (Enja, 1993), Japanese pianist Aki Takase and American saxophonist David Murray reunite in Switzerland. There has been one live recording since, Valencia (Sound Hills, 1997), but the question remains what took them so long? The saxophone/piano axis has been a favored format for both. Murray's companions ...

Jason Stein Quartet: Lucille

Read "Lucille" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jason Stein continues to curve a niche in the jazz world, but it's not what you might assume. Listeners straightaway assume that he is an idiosyncratic outlier because his sole instrument is the bass clarinet. We've grown accustomed to saxophonists like Eric Dolphy and David Murray doubling on the bass clarinet. Stein's constancy to this one ...

Carmen Rothwell: The Art of Intuition

Read "Carmen Rothwell: The Art of Intuition" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Seattle, a city synonymous with alternative rock, has long sustained a provincial jazz culture, without a signature sound, but with an openness to innovative, progressive invention. To outside jazz partisans, the city is known for phenomenal high school talent that usually flies the coop, heading east for conservatory training and to pursue professional ambitions.

Aki Takase, David Murray: Cherry ‎– Sakura

Read "Cherry ‎– Sakura" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Un dialogo iniziato oltre vent'anni fa, quello tra Aki Takase e David Murray, quando incisero Blue Monk, un album dedicato alle composizioni di Thelonious Monk. Il pianista di Rocky Mount, nume tutelare della tradizione non allineata del jazz moderno, ritorna anche in questo Cherry--Sakura, che include una bella versione di “Let's Cool One." A parte questo ...
