Bastian Weinhold: Cityscape

Read "Cityscape" reviewed by Dave Wayne

German-born drummer Bastian Weinhold came to New York City in 2009 to study at the Manhattan School Of Music. He quickly got a lot of traction around town, recording and subsequently releasing his debut album, River Styx (Frame Music, 2010) just over a year after his arrival. His backing band on that release included Linda Oh, ...

Pascal Le Boeuf: Pascal’s Triangle

Read "Pascal’s Triangle" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La musica di Pascal's Triangle si sviluppa nell'alveo di un modern mainstream, basato sul solido interplay dei musicisti. Va elogiato lo sforzo compositivo del leader, autore delle otto composizioni originali del CD. Spiccano linee melodiche morbide e temi godibili, con prevalenza dei tempi medi. Abbandonate per il momento le suggestioni dell'elettronica, l'eclettico leader dà vita ad ...

Le Boeuf Deux Fois: Pascal's Triangle and Le Boeuf Brothers Remixed

Read "Le Boeuf Deux Fois: Pascal's Triangle and Le Boeuf Brothers Remixed" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The Le Boeuf Brothers--saxophonist Remy and pianist Pascal--don't box themselves into a jazz corner; or, perhaps it should be said that they don't box jazz into a corner, preferring instead to let it marinate in the juices of the present, where it can absorb new flavors and move in different directions.

Both men ...

Le Boeuf Brothers Expand Into The World Of Kafka

Le Boeuf Brothers Expand Into The World Of Kafka

For many of today’s jazz listeners, it is difficult to define the connection between the music and what it expresses—if anything definite is being expressed at all. What is the music about? 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 ...

Natalie Cressman and Secret Garden
DROM
New York, NY
September 6th, 2012

The trombone is not an instrument that tolerates mediocrity. Because of the instrument's many idiosyncrasies, there's no real chance for the slide instrumentalist to get caught in the purgatory of empty virtuosity often exhibited by up-and-coming guitarists and saxophonists. The practitioners who persevere ...

Natalie Cressman and Secret Garden: Unfolding

Read "Unfolding" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

Looking for antecedents for trombonist/vocalist Natalie Cressman? All About Jazz's C. Michael Bailey correctly points us to Jack Teagarden, the original singing trombonist. And, in fact, Cressman finds plenty of opportunity in the funkier passages of Unfolding, her debut album, to deploy a fluid and full Teagarden-like sound on the instrument.

But Cressman--twenty years old ...

Bastian Weinhold: River Styx

Read "River Styx" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

In Greek Mythology, the River Styx was said to separate the world of the living from the world of the dead. With this in mind, it be assumed that drummer Bastian Weinhold's debut might be a drab journey filled with gloom, but that's not the case. A dark, aggressive side certainly comes out in a lot ...
