Oliver Lake: Right Up On

Read "Right Up On" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Although he will always be known first and foremost as an uncompromising saxophonist who helped catalyze the jazz avant- garde from the 1970s onward, it's also worth recognizing Oliver Lake's ambition as a composer.

Le Boeuf Brothers + Jack Quartet: Imaginist

Read "Imaginist" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Le Boeuf Brothers + JACK Quartet: Imaginist

Read "Imaginist" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

If one were to reference the Le Boeuf Brothers previous recordings for what to expect from their latest effort with the JACK Quartet, Imaginist, they might indeed find a pattern of fine musicianship and compositional ability that would not mislead.

There is certainly an abundance of beauty in abstract improvisation, yet no matter how abstract, every solo we hear and every song remains a story that takes ...

Le Boeuf Brothers: In Praise of Shadows
