Soft Machine: Hidden Details

Read "Hidden Details" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Hidden Details celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Soft Machine's 1968 eponymous debut, a seismic event in the British psychedelic, jazz and rock music landscapes that still reverbates as the Canterbury scene/sound. This anniversary studio celebration also brought about Soft Machine's first tour of North America since 1974, with several 2018 shows featuring Gary Husband as guest ...

Randy Brecker & NDR Bigband Rocks Piloo Records & Productions LLC 2019 The easiest answer isn't always the best answer, but sometimes it is. So it's both easy and proper to point out that trumpet and flugelhorn master, composer, and bandleader Randy Brecker was kind enough ...

Soft Machine: Hidden Details

Read "Hidden Details" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

From leading the psychedelic '60s charge with Pink Floyd to a more experimental, free rock/jazz stratagem that incorporated whatever sound caught its collective musical ear, Soft Machine included, over the course of nearly two decades, a colorful cast of eccentrics, like guitarists Allan Holdsworth and Andy Summers, drummer/vocalist Robert Wyatt, bassist Hugh Hopper, and fuzz organist ...

Soft Machine: Hidden Details

Read "Hidden Details" reviewed by John Kelman

Following a series of releases for Moonjune Records under the moniker Soft Machine Legacy, beginning with 2005's Live in Zaandam and concluding, most recently, with 2013's Burden of Proof, this quartet consisting largely of members from the classic Canterbury group Soft Machine has finally decided to drop the “Legacy" and go it with the original name ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit. Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

Norfolk And Norwich Festival 2015

Read "Norfolk And Norwich Festival 2015" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Norfolk And Norwich Festival Norwich, UK May 8-24, 2015 With a program that includes dance, visual arts, site-specific theatre in city streets and ancient woodland and a few almost impossible to define events, a festival such as the annual Norfolk and Norwich Festival still manages to find space for jazz. ...

Peter Oxley and Nicolas Meier: Chasing Tales

Read "Chasing Tales" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Pete Oxley and Nicolas Meier are guitarists. This is an accurate statement, but it goes only so far in describing the two musicians' virtuosity across a range of guitars and guitar-related instruments. Chasing Tales demonstrates their talents far more clearly than any written attempt to do so--between them, Meier and Oxley play around a dozen instruments ...

Switzerland 1974

Read "Switzerland 1974" reviewed by John Kelman

Thank goodness for Cuneiform Records. Beyond releasing cutting edge new music from now-longstanding groups like The Claudia Quintet and relative newcomers like Norway's Pixel, the intrepid American label continues to unearth, restore and release wonderful archival finds like S.O.S.' Looking for the Next One (2013), and the equally impressive Flashpoint: NDR Jazz Workshop-April '69 (2011), from ...

Tommy Halferty Trio: Burkina

Read "Burkina" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Veteran Irish guitarist Tommy Halferty has played in numerous settings over the past four decades, from duos with Stephane Grappelli, John Abercrombie and John Etheridge to small ensemble forays with the likes of George Mraz, Lee Konitz and Benny Golson. Perhaps it's in a trio format, however, where Halferty feels most at home, crafting notable collaborations ...

Trio HSK: Trio HSK

Read "Trio HSK" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

With just three tunes and 25 minutes running time, the self-titled debut recording from Trio HSK can never be accused of over-burdening the listener with the sheer quantity of its musical outpourings. Quality, however, is present in abundance. The trio, based in Edinburgh, features the relatively unusual lineup of Richard Harrold's piano, David Series' ...
