Christy Doran: Undercurrent - Live at Theater Gutersloh

Read "Undercurrent - Live at Theater Gutersloh" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Irish-born, Lucerne-based guitarist Christy Doran is as versatile as he is prolific. From the beguiling duo collaboration with Chinese pipa virtuoso Yang Jing that was No. 9 (Leo Records, 2013) and the swaggering alt-rock of New Bag's Mesmerized (Double Moon Records, 2013) to Bunter Hund's genre-busting, accordion-cum-guitar driven Walkin' The Dog (Unit Records 2014) and the ...

Martial Solal: My One And Only Love: Live at Theater Gütersloh

Read "My One And Only Love: Live at Theater Gütersloh" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

English poet Samuel Johnson famously and accurately remarked that “He that runs against Time has an antagonist not subject to casualties." With that statement, Johnson essentially cut to the ultimate truth behind man's battle with mortality, the powers of change, and the swift dominance of the aging process. But he didn't say it all. What he failed ...

Hans Lüdemann - Trio Ivoire: Desert Pulse

Read "Desert Pulse" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Pianist Hans Ludemann's past is steeped in modern and outside jazz realms amid his affiliations with trombonist Albert Mangelsdorf, pianist Paul Bley and other forward-looking explorers. But as the liner notes point out, the artist switched gears after a trip to West Africa in 1999 where he met balaphone performer Aly Keita who uses the melodic ...

Read "Ziljabu Nights - Live at Theater Gutersloh" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This live album celebrates the 8th edition of the German record label's European Jazz Legends series, culminating in a book to be published in 2018.

Dave Liebman & Richie Beirach: Balladscapes

Read "Balladscapes" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Se c'è un sodalizio artistico che merita di essere definito “storico," è quello tra Dave Liebman e Richie Beirach: il primo incontro tra i due -che sono quasi coetanei, il sopranista avendo solo un anno in più del pianista--avviene infatti quasi cinquant'anni fa, quando i due ancora erano studenti, ed erano assieme nel 1973 per First ...
