Kneebody: Anti-Hero

Read "Anti-Hero" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

Several questions came to mind when listening (repeatedly) to Kneebody's latest offering, Anti-Hero.

1. “Why does this feel important?"

Easy one. Anti-Hero is by far the strongest effort yet from arguably the most original collective to strafe the jazz world in recent history. All the pheromones that make Kneebody so attractive have ...

Read "Dan Tepfer Trio: Eleven Cages; Judy Niemack with Dan Tepfer: Listening to You" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dan Tepfer s'è messo in luce da un decennio con eccellenti lavori da leader (dai trii jazz all'esecuzione delle Goldberg Variations) e con prestigiose collaborazioni: ricordiamo il duo con Lee Konitz, il sestetto con Billy Hart, il trio con quest'ultimo e Gary Peacock.
In queste due ultime incisioni il pianista trentacinquenne evidenzia l'alto livello di ...

Dan Tepfer Trio: Eleven Cages

Read "Eleven Cages" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Pianist Dan Tepfer makes an excellent point here, reminding us that the concept of freedom is actually built on architectural stability. With Eleven Cages Tepfer has his Thomas Merton moment, likening the framework of each song to the walls of his newfound freedom. He recognizes and emphasizes the fact that different structures are housings for exploration ...

Kneebody: Anti-Hero

Read "Anti-Hero" reviewed by Vic Albani

Bene. Facciamo il punto. Sono anni che sostengo a piena voce come i Kneebody siano una delle vere, grandi realtà della musica moderna.
