Culture Clubs: Part IV: When Jazz Met Europe

Read "Culture Clubs: Part IV: When Jazz Met Europe" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The Geography of Jazz--When Jazz Met Europe In 2004 Maureen Anderson, a researcher at Illinois State University contributed a dissertation to the journal, African American Review, titled The White Reception of Jazz in America. Ostensibly, her article deals with stories published in high profile periodicals and journals from 1917 and into the 1930s, written by white ...

Kjetil Jerve / Tim Thornton / Anders Thorén: Circumstances

Read "Circumstances" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Astonishingly, this international trio--Kjetil Jerve from Norway, Tim Thornton from the UK and Anders Thorén from Sweden--had played only one concert together before they recorded the studio tracks from which the contents of this album were gleaned. That recording session lasted two hours but here has been whittled down to just under an hour's worth of ...

Keith Jarrett: After the Fall

Read "After the Fall" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

If, after thirty five years and dozens of standard bearing recordings you're not spoiled rotten, or decisively worse, indifferent to the mythic elegance and boundless creativity of the Standards Trio, then welcome gratefully the latest two-disc chronicle, After The Fall. Recorded on November 14, 1998 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, this was Keith Jarrett's ...


Black Flower at Moriska Paviliongen

Black Flower
Moriska Paviljongen
Malmo, Sweden
February 16, 2018

Black Flower opened their concert at Moriska Paviljongen with a trance-like song redolent of early Pink Floyd, but soon enough the bpm picked up and seismic bass notes started resonating. We've all heard of EDM, but is IPM (instrumental ...


Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: After the Fall

Read "After the Fall" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Sembra ormai definitivamente tramontata la speranza di rivedere in concerto il trio Standards di Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock e Jack DeJohnette, che in trent'anni di attività ha riportato il moderno trio pianistico ai vertici dell'espressione jazzistica, ponendosi come punto di riferimento obbligato per tutti coloro che hanno adottato la stessa formula strumentale negli ultimi tre decenni. ...


Gleb Kolyadin: Gleb Kolyadin

Read "Gleb Kolyadin" reviewed by Geno Thackara

One sometimes doesn't know where to start in describing things under the progressive-rock umbrella, considering that the term comes with such a pile of baggage it's practically impossible to see around. The modern-day genre (to the extent that's even a recognizable thing) arguably has even more issues than the 1970s version: there are more bands out ...

La contrabbassista romana Federica Michisanti si è rapidamente affermata come una delle nuove leve meritevoli di grande attenzione. Grazie ad un equilibrio tra immediatezza ed originalità, tra camerismo ed improvvisazione, i suoi progetti sono pieni di spunti fertili e stimolanti. In questa intervista ci parla del suo lavoro mosso tanto da un'ardimentosa ricerca quanto da un'intima ...


Keith Jarrett / Gary Peacock / Jack DeJohnette: After The Fall

Read "After The Fall" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In the year between ECM releases Tokyo '96 (1997) and Whisper Not (1999), Keith Jarrett's iconic Standards Trio returned to live performances following a two-year break. Jarrett's bout with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome left him physically and emotionally drained, but with the condition in check, his expressive passion and physical enthusiasm return in full force with After ...


Kjetil Mulelid Trio: Not Nearly Enough To Buy A House

Read "Not Nearly Enough To Buy A House" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Norwegian pianist/composer Kjetil Mulelid leads his young trio in a program with a maturity that contradicts their age. Their music is lyrical and exploratory, with a high degree of group interaction, and even a bit of free playing. Opener “Entrance" finds them moving together through the rhythmic waves. “Fly, Fly" begins with Mulelid in a slightly ...


Satoko Fujii: Solo

Read "Solo" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Solo piano performances generally fall into one of two categories--introverted or extraverted affairs. Obvious examples of extraverts are Fats Waller and Art Tatum, while inward-looking pianists are Brad Mehldau and Bill Evans. Extraverts play music pointed at the audience, while introverts internalize the experience.

How then do we categorize the music of Satoko Fujii? ...
