Bobby Naughton / Leo Smith / Perry Robinson: The Haunt

Read "The Haunt" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You might have heard the cheer go up with the reissue of The Haunt, vibraphonist Bobby Naughton's 1976 trio recording with trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith and clarinetist Perry Robinson. Crate diggers have treasured the long out-of-print original release on Naughton's Otic Records. Thanks to Lithuania's NoBusiness Records, we have this important document remastered, plus an additional ...

Kang Tae Hwan: Live At Cafe Amores

Read "Live At Cafe Amores" reviewed by John Sharpe

South Korean reedman Kang Tae Hwan is one of the foremost exponents of solo saxophone in the Far East. While he has featured in groups, notably Ton Klami who can be heard on Prophecy Of Nue (NoBusiness, 2017), his conception is so singular that it may be best appreciated in undiluted form. Which makes Live At ...

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

Read "Frames & Terrains" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Tirato in soli 300 esemplari su vinile, quindi con la classica divisione per facciate che giocoforza separa a sua volta in due parti la suite del titolo, peraltro frutto di un'unica seduta di improvvisazione totale, questo lavoro (live a Colonia, 9 giugno 2016) esprime e documenta pregi e difetti della formula, per la verità più i ...

Barre Phillips / Motoharu Yoshizawa: Oh My, Those Boys!

Read "Oh My, Those Boys!" reviewed by John Sharpe

Expatriate American bassist Barre Phillips is the banner name on another in the Chap Chap series of improvised encounters from Japan issued by the NoBusiness imprint. He boasts an illustrious back-story. His Journal Violone (Opus One,1968) is reputed to be the first solo bass album, while Music From Two Basses (ECM, 1971) with Dave Holland was ...

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

Previous collaborations between British-born (though to an Argentinean father and a German mother) reedman Tobias Delius and German pianist Achim Kaufmann include appearances in drummer Christian Lillinger's Grund and in the European version of NYC singer Fay Victor's Herbie Nichols project, so their pairing as part of a co-operative quartet on Frames & Terrains is not ...

Mark Dresser: Modicana

Read "Modicana" reviewed by John Sharpe

As virtuoso bassist Mark Dresser has been performing and recording solo since 1983, you can guarantee that he knows what he's doing. And Modicana fully meets expectations, presenting an accomplished and engaging album which belies the potential austerity of the unaccompanied recital. The limited edition LP collects two pieces recorded live at the 2016 Umea Jazz ...

Bobby Bradford: Live At The Magic Triangle

Read "Live At The Magic Triangle" reviewed by John Sharpe

After the well-received Live At The Open Gate (NoBusiness, 2016), the arrival of a second outing for the front line of cornetist Bobby Bradford and saxophonist Hafez Modirzadeh doesn't come as a surprise. 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 ...

Itaru Oki: Kami Fusen

Read "Kami Fusen" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Kami Fusen è il secondo capitolo della serie di registrazioni inedite curata da NoBusiness e Chap Chap Records, dopo l'eccellente The Conscience di Paul Rutherford e Sabu Toyozumi.

Questa volta, i musicisti provengono tutti dall'Estremo Oriente. Itaru Oki è stato tra i primi musicisti giapponesi ad esplorare il linguaggio del free jazz nei ...
