It was a diverse year in jazz, international artists like Tony Allen and Seckou Keita brought unique perspectives to jazz.

John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by John Kelman

For those who may have noticed, there have been no best of lists coming from yours truly since 2014; sadly, the chronic health problem that has reduced my previous writing pace to a crawl continues without much respite. My best of the year lists have always been predicated upon having reviewed the releases chosen, and with ...

Wingfield - Reuter - Sirkis: Lighthouse

Read "Lighthouse" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Once again, the sky is the limit for these estimable artists who execute spontaneous compositions in the studio without any overdubs or heavy editing. It's largely about the musicians' synchronous game-plan and intuitive interactions during these resonating and impactful works, crossing genres or stylizations that lie somewhere between freeform progressive rock and jazz rock. Lighthouse follows ...

Read "Wingfield Reuter Stavi Sirkis: The Stone House" reviewed by John Kelman

At a 2009 ECM @ 40 celebration in Mannheim, Germany that was part of the ongoing Enjoy Jazz Festival, Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava spoke, in a public interview, about how free jazz, back in the day, wasn't really free.

Wingfield Reuter Stavi Sirkis: The Stone House

Read "The Stone House" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Electrifying collective improvisation from four progressive masters. The combination of electric guitar, touch guitar, electric bass and drums recalls the classic David Torn album Cloud About Mercury (ECM, 1987), as well as the various improvisational King Crimson spinoffs called ProjeKcts.

U.K. guitarist Mark Wingfield (Jane Chapman, solo artist, and one half of the long-running ...

Dwiki Dharmawan: Pasar Klewer

Read "Pasar Klewer" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Another day, another two- disc set. Or so it seems. Fortunately, one does not have to wade through Dwiki Dharmawan's Pasar Klewer. Despite some odd choices in track sequence one may even wonder ..."is that all?" after the second disc has finished its spin. Dharmawan is an Indonesian jazz pianist who, like so many of his ...
