Tord Gustavsen Quartet: Extended Circle

Read "Tord Gustavsen Quartet: Extended Circle" reviewed by John Kelman

The evolution of Norwegian pianist Tord Gustavsen and his relationship with ECM Records has always been more about expansion rather than linear forward motion. The closing sentence of an All About Jazz review of The Well (2012), in fact, says it all: “ If Changing Places [2003] announced an important new pianist on the international stage, ...

Vossa Jazz
Oslo, Norway
March 22-24, 2013
Every festival hopes to have a signature, that certain something that differentiates it from all the rest and makes it a desired destination, but few have as many things going for it as the annual Vossa Jazz Festival, now in its 40th year.

It certainly may seem ...

Farmers Market and Sidsel Endresen & Stian Westerhus Win Norwegian Grammy Awards

Saturday evening at Vossa Jazz was an even greater cause for celebration than the performances to that point and still to come. Two of the festival's artists received news that they had been awarded Norwegian Grammy Awards: Multi-instrumentalist Stian Carstensen (accordion, guitar, pedal steel guitar, Kaval, banjo) and his longstanding group Farmers Market won in the Open Category for the group's 2012 release, ...

FAT: FAT

Read "FAT" reviewed by John Kelman

Around for more than a decade, Alex Machacek's first record as a leader (renamed, with characteristically bone-dry wit, as Mc Hacek) was Featuring Ourselves (Next Generation, 1999), but it was when the Austrian-born/California-resident guitarist moved to Abstract Logix that more significant attention came, first with his stunning, year-besting [sic] (2006).

Säd Afrika

Lost Marble

2012

With virtually none of its discography available on CD--and the only one, Open Letter (EG, 1988), shamefully out-of-print--it's no mean accomplishment that Britain's Loose Tubes has remained, if not exactly legendary, then at least firmly etched into the minds of those aware of them. Of ...
