Konnex Records

Read "Konnex Records" reviewed by Celeste Sunderland

One night in the early '70s, saxophonist Trevor Watts and drummer John Stevens were playing a concert in West Berlin. After the show, a tall, elegant, German man by the name of Manfred Schiek asked if he could buy one of their records. But they didn't have one. “There was an oil crisis at the time ...

Lotte Anker

Read "Lotte Anker" reviewed by Celeste Sunderland

One September evening in 1987, Danish saxophonist Lotte Anker sat among the audience at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine at a tribute concert for one of her heroes, John Coltrane. Two things about that night stand out for her: the reverberation of sound in the massive space and the extraordinary playing of pianist Marilyn ...

Total Music Meeting 2008

Read "Total Music Meeting 2008" reviewed by Celeste Sunderland

English bassist John Edward's instrument is by no means pristine. Scuffs and scratches sully the top of its belly and the veneer is worn down on its left edge like a badge of improvisational fortitude.

Sam Yahel Trio: Truth and Beauty

Read "Truth and Beauty" reviewed by Celeste Sunderland

Sam Yahel's Hammond B3 organ has been paired with stars like Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, Maceo Parker and Bill Frisell, but with his fourth album as a leader, the organist reveals his own voice. It's confident, clever and gleefully vibrant. With saxophonist Joshua Redman and drummer Brian Blade, two stars in their own right, Yahel has ...

Bill Frisell's music is painterly. It inspires a lush, textured sense of motion. So do the works of artist Gerhard Richter. That these two were paired five years ago at an exhibition in San Francisco makes perfect sense. Eight of Richter's Abstract Pictures hung at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art as part of a ...

Stefano Bollani

Read "Stefano Bollani" reviewed by Celeste Sunderland

In December, 2007 Italian pianist Stefano Bollani got the chance to play in one of Rio de Janeiro's poorest places, the favela. For most, performing in such a dreary locale would not be so pleasant, but for Bollani it was extraordinary. “They never have concerts there," he explained. “It's the poorest place on Earth and there ...
