Alex LoRe And Weirdear: Karol

Read "Karol" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

To simply read about it, Karol—saxophonist Alex Lore's third album in total and first on the Challenge imprint—might seem weighted by its conceptual underpinning. Aiming to integrate “elements from Eurocentric and Black American music traditions," LoRe takes most of his inspirational cues from classical composers. Said ideal, for many, would simply lead to either academic exercise ...

Lucas Pino: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Lucas Pino's No Net Nonet has claimed a piece of turf within the vast, sprawling, crowded field of the jazz mainstream. Its brilliantly conceived and executed efforts resist additional stylistic distinctions. Teamwork, mutually reinforcing concerns and a spirit of adventure infuse the seven tracks of That's A Computer. The compositions and arrangements by the leader, as ...

Matteo Bortone

Read "Matteo Bortone" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Paul Bley, Closer (ESP, 1966). Esplorare senza paura di cadere nel vuoto. Barry Altschul incredibile. A mio avviso, uno dei migliori dischi di piano trio. 2. Elliott Smith, Either/Or (Kill Rock Stars, 1997). Cantautorato struggente post Nick Drake. ”Between the Bars” una delle mie preferite, se avessi una chitarra acustica ...

Read "The Answer Is No" reviewed by Jack Bowers

With one well-received album under its belt, composer / tenor saxophonist Lucas Pino's well-groomed New York City-based No Net Nonet is back for a second go-round, The Answer Is No. For the benefit of curious souls who wonder what question may have inspired the reply, it is, we are told, Pino's answer “to a world inundating ...

Guilhem Flouzat: A Thing Called Joe

Read "A Thing Called Joe" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Drummer Guilhem Flouzat, gearing up for his third recording as a leader, had meant to steer his music along the path he'd taken on his sophomore album, Portraits (Sunnyside Records, 2015)--a rotating cast of musicians laying down a batch of the leader's eloquent compositions.

Alex LoRe Quartet: More Figs And Blue Things

Read "More Figs And Blue Things" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Saxophonist Alex LoRe is a musician of philosophical and poetic bent. With his debut--Dream House (Inner Circle Music, 2014)--that wasn't always apparent, as the scales slightly favored progress over patience. Here, the balance tips the other way, but not so much so that things become tedious. LoRe may be a deep thinker, but he doesn't allow ...
