Omar Sosa: Building Bridges Not Walls

Read "Omar Sosa: Building Bridges Not Walls" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Music, religion, family, his relationship to the planet—all these are inseparable to an artist whose musical world is steeped in the Afro-Cuban heritage that he draws upon so personally and individually in his work. Spinning culinary metaphors to describe the processes of music-making, he sings the praises of ...

Joris Teepe: In The Spirit Of Rashied Ali

Read "In The Spirit Of Rashied Ali" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Taking Elvin Jones' vaunted place in John Coltrane's eternal journey beyond the expected, Rashied Ali's mutable, intuitively malleable sense of time, at once both visceral and disembodied, propelled the saxophonist further into his explorations of music as a free, transcendent, spiritual entity. Although he continued to innovate with Alice Coltrane and Archie Shepp and influence musicians ...

Sempre affiancato da ...

Read "Live Without Fear" reviewed by Chris May

Britain's Jazzman Records has form when it comes to spiritual jazz. Its series Spiritual Jazz: Modal, Esoteric and Deep Jazz, now one release away from its tenth volume, has made accessible again some of the most worthwhile but near-lost African American music of the 1970s.

Franz Koglmann / Bill Dixon: Opium For Franz

Read "Opium For Franz" reviewed by Mark Corroto

This gem of a recording has been a collector's dream prize for decades. Recorded and released in the mid-1970s on flugelhorn/trumpeter Franz Koglmann's Pipe Recordings, each copy of Opium For Franz was issued with an original hand painted cover. Back in the day, we wouldn't speak of a limited issue release, even though this one probably ...
