Joris Teepe: In The Spirit Of Rashied Ali

Read "In The Spirit Of Rashied Ali" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Taking Elvin Jones' vaunted place in John Coltrane's eternal journey beyond the expected, Rashied Ali's mutable, intuitively malleable sense of time, at once both visceral and disembodied, propelled the saxophonist further into his explorations of music as a free, transcendent, spiritual entity. Although he continued to innovate with Alice Coltrane and Archie Shepp and influence musicians ...

Joris Teepe & Don Braden: Conversations

Read "Conversations" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

In life we tend to make hard distinctions between the value of conversation and the worth of action, crystalizing such a dividing line with statements like “talk is cheap" and “actions speak louder than words." Jazz, however, has a way of relating the two. When musicians get together to play, the talk is the action. Every ...
