Peter Evans & Levy Lorenzo
Roulette
April 15, 2019

Trumpeter Peter Evans is a very familiar figure on the extreme scene, but the percussionist and electronicist Levy Lorenzo will be a new name to most folks. The pair have been jointly penning compositions, but these nevertheless have the feel of ...

Genre defying UK ensemble Led Bib to release 'It's Morning' on RareNoise Records - due out September 27, 2019

From the Homeric invocation of ethereal opener “Atom Story,” it becomes stunningly clear that It's Morning, the latest album from the uncategorizable UK ensemble Led Bib, is meant to take the listener on a journey. The wide-ranging and evocative set is also a testament to the distance the band has travelled on its own evolutionary path. ...

Michael J Bolton: Earthrise

Read "Earthrise" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Not the first record to salute the fiftieth anniversary of the first man on the moon, and probably not the last, Earthrise is composer, producer and bassist Michael J Bolton's own lunar landing. Rob Cope's Gods Of Apollo (Ubuntu Music, 2019) is just one recent example on the same theme, but this is hardly a criticism ...

Ark Noir: Tunnel Visions

Read "Tunnel Visions" reviewed by Roger Farbey

The minute-long opening track, “Intro To A Dystopian Society," whilst too brief to make a proper impact, does, nevertheless, clearly signpost the tenor of the ensuing forty four minutes, which might be construed, rather cynically, as a mash-up of Aphex Twin meets Magma. This glib summation is, of course, inaccurate since Ark Noir possesses its own ...

Soft Machine: Hidden Details

Read "Hidden Details" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Hidden Details celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Soft Machine's 1968 eponymous debut, a seismic event in the British psychedelic, jazz and rock music landscapes that still reverbates as the Canterbury scene/sound. This anniversary studio celebration also brought about Soft Machine's first tour of North America since 1974, with several 2018 shows featuring Gary Husband as guest ...

Rocks

The easiest answer isn't always the best answer, but sometimes it is. So it's both easy and proper to point out that trumpet and flugelhorn master, composer, and bandleader Randy Brecker was kind enough ...

Jacopo Ferrazza e il Questionario di Proust

Read "Jacopo Ferrazza e il Questionario di Proust" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

Il tratto principale della mia musica
La Sincerità.

La qualità che desidero nei musicisti che suonano con me
Sono diverse: La sincerità, l'impegno e la puntualità!

Come musicista, il momento in cui sono stato più felice
Probabilmente quando sono salito sul palco del Blue ...

MUSICIAN Born:

Shamus Dark

I've spent the last few years recording albums, making videos and performing in and around London, the far east and New York City. Most of the songs come from the 1930's, 40's and 50's, written by the great composers of the day; Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart, Hoagy Carmichael, Matt Dennis, Harold Arlen et al. But there are also songs by Elvis Costello and Joy Division. With the help of some great collaborating musicians and producers, I'm doing my best to bring some of these great old American songbook standards into the 21st century with the aid of digital technology.

Part 1 | Part 2

The music market in Japan--second only to the U.S. in terms of revenue--generates more than two-billion dollars in sales annually. Enthusiasts and collectors of jazz recordings had long ago discovered that Japan's robust music scene, and the now virtual accessibility to products have made the country a go-to resource for ...

Particle: Accelerator

Read "Accelerator" reviewed by Doug Collette

Contrary to prevailing popular opinion, electr(on)ic keyboards are not just for noodling in ever-so-cheesy, toy-like tones. In the hands of the titular leader of Particle, keyboardist/vocalist Steve Molitz, for instance, those instruments are lethal weapons with which, on the group's first album in fourteen years, he sets out to destroy preconceptions about what righteous creations can ...
