Samuel Blaser / Gerry Hemingway: Oostum

Read "Oostum" reviewed by John Sharpe

Swiss trombonist Samuel Blaser has developed a productive partnership with drummer Gerry Hemingway since the American's relocation to Switzerland. Hemingway also forms part of the latest incarnation of Blaser's Quartet as well as his Consort In Motion outfit, heard on A Mirror to Machaut (Songlines, 2013). Such alliances stand the pair in good stead as they ...

Martin Blume / Tobias Delius / Achim Kaufmann / Dieter Manderscheid: Frames & Terrains

Read "Frames & Terrains" reviewed by John Sharpe

This time out, bassist Ken Filiano and drummer Royal Hartigan (who both feature on Modirzadeh's Post Chromodal Out! (Pi Recordings, 2012) replace Mark ...

Mark Dresser: Modicana

Read "Modicana" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Titoli decisamente singolari, stravaganti come a volte sa essere il personaggio, formato LP (primi tre brani sul lato A, restanti quattro sul retro), perfetto equilibrio fra archettato (in cui il Nostro è maestro) e pizzicato (non senza l'irrompere pur discreto di rumorismi più o meno episodici, che vanno comunque infittendosi verso la fine) e una qualità ...

Yedo Gibson / Hernani Faustino / Vasco Trilla: Chain

Read "Chain" reviewed by John Sharpe

Fast changing textural interplay is the name of the game on Chain which comprises six group inventions, all falling within the 8-14 minute bracket, recorded in Lisbon in June 2016. A familiar presence on the Amsterdam scene, Brazilian-born saxophonist Yedo Gibson appears the de facto leader of a collective trio, accompanied by Portuguese/Catalan drummer Vasco Trilla ...
