Brian Adler: Radioactive Landscapes EP

Read "Radioactive Landscapes EP" reviewed by Troy Dostert

As was evident on his previous EP releases from 2016, Binary and Mysteries of the Deep, percussionist Brian Adler enjoys working with conceptual frameworks for his compositions. On Binary, he explored the possible interactions between human-and computer-based creativity, and on Mysteries he drew thematic inspiration from the world of Eastern spirituality. These investigations allowed him to ...

Joe Fiedler: Like, Strange

Read "Like, Strange" reviewed by Troy Collins

Seeking a greater range of ...

Read "Binary & Mysteries of the Deep" reviewed by Troy Dostert

For those seeking a bit of metaphysical speculation with their jazz, one could benefit from giving these two new EPs from drummer Brian (Shankar) Adler a careful listen. A thoughtful, creative percussionist, Adler is eager to explore the big questions in his music, and his use of complex rhythmic structures and instrumentation from other traditions (particularly ...

Kevin Hays New Day Trio: North

Read "North" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The second album from the Kevin Hays New Day Trio does and doesn't follow in its predecessor's footsteps. On one hand you can argue that it's completely different, as Hays doesn't sing on this one and there are no guests to speak of here; on the other, you can certainly opine that the overt lyricism in ...

La gravità degli ottoni

Read "La gravità degli ottoni" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Ogni tanto ci piace accorpare incisioni omogenee sotto il profilo strumentale, e poi magari diversissime per esiti espressivi e poetica che le informa. È il caso dei quattro album che trovate qui di seguito passati al vaglio, riuniti nel segno del trombone, in prima istanza, e degli ottoni gravi più in generale.

Joe Fiedler Trio: I'm In

Read "I'm In" reviewed by Troy Collins

I'm In is trombonist Joe Fiedler's fourth recording with his longstanding trio and the second on his Multiphonics Music imprint.

8th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival Takes Place June 14 & 21 In The Urban Meadow

“The Red Hook Jazz Festival exists contentedly on the margins, like its namesake neighborhood and much of the music on its bill... The mood in the audience was neighborly, with a higher ratio of small children to youngish adults than I’ve seen at any musical event not expressly pitched as a kids’ show.” —Nate Chinen, New York Times “The lineup ...
