Gaia Wilmer: Migrations

Read "Migrations" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Sa coniugare feeling e complessità di scrittura Gaia Wilmer, sassofonista e compositrice brasiliana al suo debutto da leader. L'idea di formare quest'ottetto è nata nel primo anno di frequenza ai corsi di composizione jazz del Berklee College of Music e s'è concretizzata nel dicembre 2016 (dopo un annuncio su Kickstarter), durante il secondo anno di master ...

The Art of the Duo: Keys and Reeds

Read "The Art of the Duo: Keys and Reeds" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Two duos, both alike in dignity, though taking the approach to very different ends:

Anat Cohen and Fred Hersch
Live in Healdsburg
Anzic Records
2018

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 ...

Frank Carlberg Large Ensemble: Monk Dreams, Hallucinations And Nightmares

Read "Monk Dreams, Hallucinations And Nightmares" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il “pianeta" Monk è stato talmente esplorato negli ultimi decenni che è difficile attendersi qualcosa d'originalmente significativo. Con quest'album orchestrale --la dimensione meno usata nelle revisitazioni del songbook monkiano -il pianista e compositore Frank Carlberg c'è però riuscito: anche se ogni brano s'ispira a un tema di Thelonious, l'elaborazione è personale e non deve stupire se ...

Chris McCarthy: Sonder

Read "Sonder" reviewed by Troy Dostert

You won't find too many jazz musicians eager to cover post-punk stalwarts Deerhoof on their debut record, as keyboardist Chris McCarthy does on Sonder. But maybe McCarthy's not too interested in being regarded as just a “jazz musician." If anything, the cross-genre creativity on display here suggests that McCarthy is trying to make music beyond category--and ...

Andrew Schiller Quintet: Tied Together, Not to the Ground

Read "Tied Together, Not to the Ground" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Andrew Schiller may be fairly young and only starting his recording career, but he's already learned some very good lessons. His debut as a leader demonstrates a level of compositional smarts that's impressive at any age, quietly building a series of coolly thoughtful quintet pieces, boasting an excellent ensemble and arranging each part in service of ...

Steve Grover: Variations

Read "Variations" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Sessant'anni, nativo del Maine, Steve Grover è qui alla testa del proprio quartetto (voce e piano trio), su cui s'innestano a turno i quattro fiati, generando cinque quintetti (senza la tromba e sempre con un solo sax) e sei sestetti (appunto con la tromba aggiunta a un unico sax alla volta). Il risultato è di una ...

CLAZZ Ensemble & Frank Carlberg: Federico on Broadway

Read "Federico on Broadway" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Pianist/composer Frank Carlberg teams up with the Netherlands-based Clazz Ensemble for some truly off-kilter and wryly humorous musical mayhem on Federico on Broadway. Like Willem Breuker and Carla Bley, Carlberg's music has roots in the avant- garde but has gravitated slowly towards the tonal. Like Bley and Breuker, Carlberg has a humorous streak, and he's fond ...

Ro Sham Beaux: Ro Sham Beaux

Read "Ro Sham Beaux" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

The four New England Conservatory students who make up Ro Sham Beaux would have you believe that their sound is some kind of convoluted indie-rock/jazz hybrid. That pretense is present in the rock 'n' roll production values of the record and in the album artwork; it's even there in the press release.

That's all well ...
