Enzo Rocco, Ferdinando Faraò: Fields

Read "Fields" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Enzo Rocco e Ferdinando Faraò sono due musicisti che si muovono spesso in molteplici contesti musicali, ma che hanno sempre di mira la sperimentazione e sono accomunati da un forte interesse per l'improvvisazione più libera--testimoniata dalle collaborazioni di Rocco con personalità del calibro di Giancarlo Schiaffini e Lol Coxhill e dall'impegno profuso da Faraò nell'Artchipel Orchestra. ...

Iluso Records: DIY from two dreamers

Read "Iluso Records: DIY from two dreamers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Australian drummer Michael Caratti and Spanish-born New York-based guitarist Álvaro Domene founded the record label Iluso in 2013 to release their quartet recording Gran Masa. The pair found they shared similar interests while in school at Middlesex University in London. And why not put out their own music? That way they could control the content and ...

Lol Coxhill & Raymond MacDonald: Morphometry

Read "Morphometry" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Glorious, custard-coloured vinyl, a charming and witty woodcut by artist Ian Barrett (Syd's nephew) on the cover and ten duos featuring saxophonists Lol Coxhill and Raymond MacDonald--what's not to like? My first sightings/hearings of the legend that was Lol took place in my mid-teens. Crossing Hungerford Bridge en route to the South Bank for a concert ...

Derek Bailey

Read "Derek Bailey" reviewed by John Eyles

Guitarist Derek Bailey was one of the more prominent and influential musicians from the “first generation of free improvisation" that developed in London in the mid-sixties and gradually promoted the music around the world. Although several members of that generation were leaders, Bailey often seemed the de facto leader of the group. Partly, this was a ...

Joëlle Léandre: A Woman's Work...

Read "A Woman's Work..." reviewed by Mark Corroto

How do you sum up the career of an improvising artist like Joëlle Léandre? Do you reissue a package of recordings from her 40 years of performance? That is probably not possible, given the multiple labels and the location and ownership of the masters. Besides, free improvisation, almost by definition, dissipates (or probably should dissipate) upon ...

Six-In-One: Subjects and Structures

Read "Subjects and Structures" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Registrazione dal vivo realizzata il 15 agosto 2015, questo album prende spunto da un'esposizione di rilievi e sculture dal medesimo titolo, opera di Andrew Coates e di Walt Shaw (che compare anche alle percussioni), presso la Artsmith Gallery di Derby, ove si è svolta anche la performance. Consta di due lunghe tracce, oltre mezz'ora l'una, e ...

Billy Jenkins Turns Sixty

Read "Billy Jenkins Turns Sixty" reviewed by Roger Farbey

On 5 July 2016 guitarist, composer, vocalist and philosopher Billy Jenkins hits the Big Six-O. It only seems five minutes ago that Jenkins played at the Purcell Room during 2010's London Jazz Festival, accompanied by the BBC Big Band to a suitably enraptured audience. He's been gigging and recording less in the past five years. His ...

Ian Brighton: Now And Then

Read "Now And Then" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Ian Brighton's first album Marsh Gas was released on Bead Records in 1977. This, his second album, is released nearly forty years later. Marsh Gas is now, sadly, a rare and virtually unobtainable artefact (other than the availability of some tracks via YouTube) so it's significant that Brighton's Now And Then has been released to coincide ...

Live From Birmingham: The Sonics, Otis Gibbs, George Huxley & John Altman

Read "Live From Birmingham: The Sonics, Otis Gibbs, George Huxley & John Altman" reviewed by Martin Longley

The Sonics
The Institute
July 28, 2015

The Sonics virtually created the garage band sound, back in the mid-1960s, taking the foundations of rhythm'n'blues and forcing a leap towards further extremity, continuing the mission begun by Link Wray, but using warped pop song structures instead of instrumental grinding. Surely ...
