A World of Piano Trios

Read "A World of Piano Trios" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Kirby uses elements of the sonic palette(s) that helped to color his earlier work, referencing the probing lyricism of John Abercrombie and the straight-to-the-heart melodic qualities shot through in classic ...

Rhythm Future Quartet: Travels

Read "Travels" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Hanno preso il nome da un brano di Django Reinhardt i quattro componenti di quest'organico manouche, che si distanzia dalle formazioni modellate sull'Hot Club de France e vuol gettare uno sguardo al futuro.

Rhythm Future Quartet: Travels

Read "Travels" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Gypsy jazz started, in terms of popular recognition, with guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli, and their lively and supremely swinging Qunintette du Hot Club du France. The group recorded hundreds of tunes in the thirties and and forties, released on the 78 rpm discs that were the recorded music mode at the time, and ...

Yoko Miwa: New Star in an Old Sky

Read "Yoko Miwa: New Star in an Old Sky" reviewed by Gordon Marshall

Self-effacing but with healthy ambition--and genuinely glamorous--pianist Yoko Miwa is a shimmering study in contrasts. Her music is loyal to sources and roots, yet it is fresh and sexy. Everything is in balance in her work. On a most elemental level she is like a graceful hostess at a grand party, catering to the desires of ...

Yoko Miwa Trio: Live at Scullers Jazz Club

Read "Live at Scullers Jazz Club" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Is live always better? Does the no second takes, out-on-a-limb aspect of playing in front of a live audience, and feeding off its energy result in the best recordings?
