Gilad Hekselman: Ask For Chaos

Read "Ask For Chaos" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

After a run of intriguingly fresh sounding records, starting with 2006 set Splitlife (Smalls Records), up to the most recently released Homes (Jazz Village 2015), New York-based guitarist Gilad Hekselman seems to have widened his musical soundscape even further by pursuing a multitude of different new projects, ultimately proving himself one of the most innovative voices ...

Adi Meyerson: Where We Stand

Read "Where We Stand" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Adi Meyerson is a young bassist and composer living in New York City. She shows a healthy respect for jazz tradition on her debut CD but also shows the ability to play around with more open-ended musical forms.

Most of the tracks have the feel of a hard-blowing '60s jazz combo with Joel Frahm's ...

Read "Seven Women (Plus Three) 2018 – Part VII" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Well, that didn't take long. What started as “Five Women" quickly grew into the present “Seven Women" and will continue to the end of this year as “Seven Women (Plus Three) as a continuing reflection of the state of female vocalists and instrumentalists. We are blessed with an abundance of musical riches.

To assist with his investigation into tenor traditions, saxophonist Wayne Escoffery formed a full-thrust front line with Marcus Strickland and George Garzone, surely one of the most vibrant teams possible around current NYC clubland. The quintet was completed by bassist Yasushi ...

Marcos Varela: San Ygnacio

Read "San Ygnacio" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Possente il suono, profonda e incisiva la cavata, decisa e vistosamente virtuosa la tecnica del giovane contrabbassista, compositore, arrangiatore e produttore Marcos Varela che in San Ygnacio mette in mostra le sue spiccate qualità strumentali scegliendo di declinare il suo talento all'interno di una langue esplicitamente post bop. In assoluta coincidenza con il credo estetico del ...

David Gibson: Inner Agent

Read "Inner Agent" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The idea of creating a safe space to allow for disregarding safety may be paradoxical in nature, but it makes perfect sense when contextualized or couched in jazz terms. There can be no resolution of faith in one's surroundings and colleagues without taking the trust fall, there can be no reward without risk, and there can ...

David Gibson: Propelling The Story Forward

Read "David Gibson: Propelling The Story Forward" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's late morning on Sunday, January 17, 2016--a wintry New York day that will later see snow--and much of Brooklyn seems to be in a state of hibernation or hiding. There are few signs of life on the streets, but there's no shortage of action in the basement of the former Public School 9 Annex. That's ...

Jared Gold: Metropolitan Rhythm

Read "Metropolitan Rhythm" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Jared Gold remains one of the most dependably creative artists in the Posi-Tone stable. He's delivered an album a year for that label since arriving with Solids & Stripes (Posi-Tone, 2008), a date that, in many respects, set the tone for the other trio and quartet sessions that would follow. Here, on his eighth release for ...

David Gibson: Boom!

Read "Boom!" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trombonist David Gibson's Boom!--his sixth leader date, and third release on the Posi-Tone imprint--is something of a fresh start. His two previous releases--A Little Somethin' (Posi-Tone, 2009) and End Of The Tunnel (Posi-Tone, 2011)--were cut from the same cloth, as each largely focused on funk, soul jazz, and swing; both albums also featured the same quartet--Gibson ...
