Kate Williams: Atlas & Vulcana

Read "Atlas & Vulcana" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Atlas and Vulcana formed a strongman and strongwoman act--Vulcana's real name was Kate Williams--whose feats of strength were renowned in Victorian and early twentieth century Britain. Pianist and composer Kate Williams (no relation, presumably) takes inspiration from the couple in titling this album and two of its tracks. Atlas & Vulcana has its own strengths--no brute ...

Gareth Lockrane: Doing That Grooveyard Thing

Read "Gareth Lockrane: Doing That Grooveyard Thing" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Few musicians have developed successful careers in jazz playing just flute. You might think of Herbie Mann, Hubert Laws and Bobbi Humphrey, but only Jeremy Steig, Paul Horn and James Newton spring immediately to mind as artists who have achieved credibility with both fans and critics in their work.

Alex Garnett: Serpent

Read "Serpent" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The Alex Garnett who peers out of the cover of Serpent looks a little aggressive and wil0- eyed, with odd vertical slits where his pupils should be--a serpent indeed. The Garnett on the inside is more benign, but with a contemporary hipness. In the excellent black and white back cover photo, the besuited saxophonist is cool ...
