Orrin Evans: The Evolution Of Oneself

Read "The Evolution Of Oneself" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Simply put, if there was no Philadelphia sound, there would be no Orrin Evans. The pianist, hailing from The City of Brotherly Love, finds plenty of Philly passion on this busy trio recording, his 25th as a leader or co-leader. Here he teams up with Detroit drummer and former roommate (back in the day) Karriem Riggins, ...

“All'aperto si gioca a bocce". Così rispose, ad un giornalista che gli aveva chiesto cosa pensasse della musica all'aperto, il grande Arturo Toscanini. Altri tempi. Fosse nato un secolo dopo, e avesse assistito a qualche concerto dei Suoni delle Dolomiti, probabilmente il Maestro avrebbe risposto diversamente. ...

Brian Blade: Fellowship - More Than Just a Word

Read "Brian Blade: Fellowship - More Than Just a Word" reviewed by John Kelman

In the 21st century, few drummers have managed Brian Blade's kind of crossover success. Beyond playing in saxophonist Wayne Shorter's quartet for nearly 15 years, beyond being a first-call drummer for producer/singer/songwriter Daniel Lanois--whether it's for his own projects like Black Dub or working with everyone from Bob Dylan to EmmyLou Harris--and beyond also being on-call ...

Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band: Landmarks

Read "Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band: Landmarks" reviewed by John Kelman

Four records in 16 years may not be prolific, but clearly Brian Blade and his longstanding Fellowship Band aren't about quantity. While a seemingly scant two years separated the drummer's leader debut (and inspiration for the group name), Fellowship (Blue Note, 1998) from its even more impressive follow-up, Perceptual (Blue Note, 2002), the group's next record, ...
