Julian Lage Trio at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts

Read "Julian Lage Trio at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts" reviewed by Doug Collette

Julian Lage Trio
Flynn Center for the Performing Arts
Burlington, Vermont
December 2, 2018

It was altogether fitting that guitarist Julian Lage led his trio onto a small stage surrounded on three sides by the modified stadium seating in place at FlynnSpace this early December evening. All the better for the ...

Jakob Bro: Bay of Rainbows

Read "Bay of Rainbows" reviewed by John Kelman

Few ECM artists, barring perhaps longtime label stalwart, pianist Keith Jarrett, have been afforded the opportunity of releasing two albums within the same calendar year. That Manfred Eicher has chosen to follow up Jakob Bro's impressive quartet date, Returnings, less than seven months later with Bay of Rainbows clearly speaks to the label head/primary producer's appreciation ...

Attarian's Dozen: The Twelve Best Recordings from 2018

Read "Attarian's Dozen: The Twelve Best Recordings from 2018" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

The year 2018 was, musically speaking, a good year. The label Pi Recordings did it again with six magnificent albums, three of which made it in my top twelve. In addition, two feminist themed gems are included as well as four by master pianists. An intimate and adventurous duet, a meeting of great minds and a ...

Rain Sultanov: Putting Baku On The Jazz Map

Read "Rain Sultanov: Putting Baku On The Jazz Map" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The Baku Jazz Festival has been a labor of love for its founder and Artistic Director, Rain Sultanov. And, like most love stories, there have been a few bumps along the road. Thirteen editions in, however, the Baku Jazz Festival is well established as one of the highpoints of Azerbaijan's annual cultural calendar. It mightn't draw ...

Stéphane Kerecki e il Questionario di Proust

Read "Stéphane Kerecki e il Questionario di Proust" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

Il tratto principale della mia musica
È molto difficile rispondere a questa domanda, ma idealmente mi piacerebbe che fosse: l'equilibrio. Tra scrittura e improvvisazione, tra sequenze con e senza tempo, tra armonia e atonalità, e infine l'equilibrio tra i diversi musicisti del gruppo.

La qualità che desidero nei musicisti che suonano con ...

Newk with Bud, a Trip in the Way-Back Machine & More

Read "Newk with Bud, a Trip in the Way-Back Machine & More" reviewed by Marc Cohn

We start with our usual dose of twenty-first century music (Marsico should be better known in the States!). And there's a quiz for you in tracks two and three; so pay attention!

Then, it's 19-year-old Sonny Rollins with Bud Powell from '49, followed by a walk in the Fall air where the original French ...

David Virelles: Igbó Alákọrin

Read "Igbó Alákọrin" reviewed by Jim Trageser

Maybe the most unexpected delight of 2018, avant-garde pianist David Virelles has released an utterly dyed-in-the-wool homage to his birthplace of Santiago de Cuba.

Completely different from any other recording he's done to this point, this unreconstructed slice of midcentury Cuban music is so completely steeped in tradition, and Virelles' playing is so gorgeously virtuosic, ...

Stefano Amerio: 20 anni di Artesuono

Read "Stefano Amerio: 20 anni di Artesuono" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Sono passati ormai diversi anni da quando abbiamo intervistato Stefano Amerio, tecnico del suono e patron di Artesuono, lo studio di registrazione più noto e affermato d'Italia e anche d'Europa, almeno per l'ambito jazzistico. Ma Artesuono è anche un'etichetta discografica con un catalogo ampio e interessante, ancorché popolato di prodotti prevalentemente di area friulana. Un etichetta ...

Kenny Werner: The Space

Read "The Space" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Let's ruminate on the state of jazz piano in the year 2018. It is a rich time, when perhaps a dozen hugely talented artists have reached the peaks of their artistry. Keith Jarrett, Marc Copland, Brad Mehldau, Bobo Stenson, Denny Zeitlin, Fred Hersch and a handful more are creating some of the richest and most beautiful ...

Keith Jarrett: La Fenice

Read "La Fenice" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Keith Jarrett stands alone in the history of improvised solo piano masterpieces. He comes close with La Fenice, a pristine, two-disc archival release. Recorded in July of 2006 at the Gran Teatro La Fenice in Venice, the phoenix rises with an inspiration and open communication only Jarrett can channel.

Emotionally captivating as all his ...
