Russ Lossing Trio: The Ways

Read "The Ways" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The Russ Lossing Trio should record more. Ways, which follows the excellent Oracle (hatOLOGY, 2011), is just the second recording this longstanding trio has released. More music from them would allow fans to study the development of the chemistry between Lossing, bassist Masa Kamaguchi, and drummer Billy Mintz. The instantaneous telepathy between piano, bass, ...

Russ Lossing, Jasper Blom and More

Read "Russ Lossing, Jasper Blom and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Sometimes a recording catches you by surprise. Such is the case with Swedish bassist Thomas Markusson's Open. Only one of the musicians was familiar, the pianist Naoko Sakata who moved from Japan to Sweden where she could play the kind of music that wasn't popular in Japan. Sakata definitely found the right company. Markusson is a ...

Rema Hasumi: Billows Of Blue

Read "Billows Of Blue" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Rema Hasumi, Japanese-born and now New York City-based, calls her compositions sound stories. Those “stories" sound like tales drifting out of a dream land: untethered to time and place, free-flowing and graceful, strikingly pretty, sometimes spooky, and starkly rendered, with the input of her empathic trio that includes bassist Masa Kamaguchi and drummer Randy Peterson, ...

Rob Garcia: Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planet

Read "Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planet" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Finding In A Oligarchy on a Dying Planet è un disco davvero interessante; medita sul destino del mondo, sulle relazioni sociali, sulle storture e le ipocrisie contemporanee, ma anche sulla possibilità di realizzare il sogno di vivere su un pianeta migliore. Chiunque lo associasse ai lavori degli anni '50 di Abbey Lincoln e Max Roach, ...

Rob Garcia: Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planet

Read "Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planet" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner

A complex amalgam, drummer-composer Rob Garcia's Finding Love in an Oligarchy on a Dying Planetis as densely constructed and provoking as its title. Despite the socially conscious themes that its track titles, lyrics, and multi-layered musical journeys explore, Garcia has made clear this is not a protest album. At least not in the typical sense.

Vinnie Sperrazza: Apocryphal

Read "Vinnie Sperrazza: Apocryphal" reviewed by Dave Wayne

An understated but highly-skilled and insanely versatile drummer in the vein of Kenny Wolleson, Jeff Hirshfield, and Paul Motian, Vinnie Sperrazza has been turning up on all sorts of interesting recordings over the past half-decade or so. Co-leader of 40Twenty with Jacob Sacks, Jacob Garchik, and Dave Ambrosio, Sperrazza is also in a trio with Sacks ...

Russ Lossing Trio: Oracle

Read "Oracle" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

There are rolling, wide open spaces in the music of Russ Lossing. Much of this is traversed in the seemingly sprawling beauty of Oracle, an album that meanders in the absorbing colors and textures of what that which the trio offers up for seduction. It is easy to be swept up in the diaphanous gusts of ...

Russ Lossing Trio: Oracle

Read "Oracle" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Haunting, meditative, solemn and high-impact are descriptors that bear pianist Russ Lossing's approach and sensibilities. While Oracle denotes his trio's debut effort for hatOLOGY records, it's been a working unit for several years, largely based in New York City. The program is architected via disparate levels of pitch amid a capacious vibe, but the trio often ...

John O’Gallagher Trio: Dirty Hands

Read "Dirty Hands" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Dirty Hands costituisce il disco (il sesto da leader) giusto per assaporare la valenza musicale dell'alto-sassofonista John O'Gallagher, noto al grande pubblico per le collaborazioni con Joe Henderson, Kenny Wheeler, Tony Malaby, Ben Monder o la Maria Schneider Orchestra. In questa sessione portoghese del 2007 lo ritroviamo alla testa di un trio affiatatissimo con contrabbasso e ...
