Henrique Eisenmann: The Free Poetics of Henrique Eisenmann

Read "The Free Poetics of Henrique Eisenmann" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Henrique Eisenmann è un musicista brasiliano destinato a realizzare grandi cose, se sarà sostenuto dalla volatile vena creativa messa in campo in questo magnifico disco. Il trait d'union di questo progetto è la costruzione di una musica basata su strati poliritmici grazie all'apporto di musicisti straordinari, che padroneggiano la musica di ricerca sia brasiliana che d'impronta ...

Bruno Raberg Trio: Tailwind

Read "Tailwind" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Tailwind is the tenth album as a leader for Swedish-born, longtime Boston-resident bassist/composer Bruno Råberg. His most recent groups have been piano-less: Hot Box (Orbis Music, 2015) was a quartet with trumpet, saxophone and drums; For The Unknown (Orbis Music, 2016) brought back the same group sans drums, and was entirely based on freely improvised music. ...

Bruno Raberg: Tailwind

Read "Tailwind" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

In a 2005 interview, double bassist Bruno Råberg discussed how Scandinavian music reflects the country's vast mountains and forests. “You can see very far and that calmness and meditative spirituality comes through," he says. Born in Sweden, but a longtime resident of Boston, you sense Råberg still carries his homeland close to the heart.

Ran Blake & Christine Correa: Streaming

Read "Streaming" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Back in 1946, Ran Blake watched The Spiral Staircase and was rather freaked. This classic chiller's opening scene shows a silent film flickering whilst a woman accompanies the visuals on piano. Blake later composed his own piano sketches for each character and wrote fan letters to the entire cast. His only reply came from Carlton, the ...

What's taken these two so long? Okay, of course they've both juggled collaborations and cross-pollinations in many different contexts, and considering the nature ...

Noah Preminger-Frank Carlberg: Whispers And Cries

Read "Whispers And Cries" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

A duo doing standards doesn't theoretically smack of originality in 2018, yet a number of present tense saxophone-piano pairings have demonstrated otherwise. Last fall, soprano maverick Sam Newsome and pianist Jean-Michel Pilc went down the rabbit hole with a good number of classics for Magic Circle (Self Produced, 2017)); around the same time, saxophone icon Dave ...
