Read "Mark Turner: Grounded in a Spiritual World" reviewed by Kurt Rosenwinkel

This article first appeared in issue no 8 of Music & Literature Magazine.

I remember being at Berklee and listening to Mark in the practice room. A lot of people used to gather outside his practice room at various times and just listen to him. He would be in there ten hours a day, ...

Stefano Battaglia: Pelagos

Read "Pelagos" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Stefano Battaglia has a ten-plus year history on the ECM label where he has covered much ground in terms of formations, style and genre. The effort has not always paid off. His label debut Raccolto (2005) was a meandering affair that squandered the opportunities that come with two-discs of music. All of Battaglia's considerable talents were ...

Simon Eskildsen Trio: Introducing the Simon Eskildsen Trio

Pianist Fred Hersch's 2015 release Solo (Palmetto) and the present Open Book recall Keith Jarrett's deeply introspective The Melody at Night, With You (ECM, 2000) with respect to the two artists having survived significant health crises. While Open Book is not as introspective as the ...

Amaury Faye Trio
Clearway
Pias Jazz Village
2017

Following several years of studying and reputation-building in his native France and beyond, Amaury Faye makes an accomplished and overdue step foward with Clearway. It was largely a standards affair on his leader debut Big Moe Trio (Greenworks, 2010). Here the French ...
