John Coltrane: Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album

Read "Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album" reviewed by Luca Canini

Non un bootleg registrato alla meno peggio chissà da chi e chissà come; e nemmeno il remake di un remake spacciato per novità assoluta dopo un paio di goffi aggiustamenti e magari una manciata di minuti mai ascoltati prima.

Sons of Kemet: Your Queen Is A Reptile

Read "Your Queen Is A Reptile" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

There is nothing quite like the Sons of Kemet. In a genre that struggles with the perception that it too often becomes mired in sameness and safety, this is a group that embraces the African roots of jazz while skirting the very essence of the genre. Eye-opening deviations come from unexpected places and in the case ...

Lee Konitz: Frescalalto

Read "Frescalalto" reviewed by Ian Patterson

For over seven decades, since his participation in Miles Davis's 1949-1950 Birth of the Cool sessions, Lee Konitz has carved out a tireless path as one of jazz's most illuminating improvisers.
