Kurt Elling: The Questions

Read "The Questions" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dall'inizio del nuovo millennio Kurt Elling ha sempre più escluso dal suo repertorio brani swinganti e dinamici a favore di ballad o pop song. Gli esuberanti interventi in scat e le fantasiose escursioni vocali dei primi dischi (mutuate dal suo iniziale modello, Mark Murphy) hanno lasciato il posto a interpretazioni da crooner confidenziale, privilegiando interpretazioni eleganti, ...

Ron Korb: Pan-Global Flutist

Read "Ron Korb: Pan-Global Flutist" reviewed by Rob Caldwell

In a 20-year career, Grammy nominated flutist Ron Korb has experienced the lows and highs of a touring musician. He's been stuck in the Panamanian jungle when the bus transporting he and his band to their show broke down, leaving them teetering on the top of a hillside for hours in the blazing sun while repairs ...

Jeff Berlin: Joe Frazier Round 3 (CD Single)

Read "Joe Frazier Round 3 (CD Single)" reviewed by John Kelman

In the world of music, there are plenty of “could have beens," but far fewer “should have beens." Count Jeff Berlin amongst the latter. The American electric bassist first made a number of marks in the second half of the musically innovative 1970s on a series of '76 recordings by singers Patti Austin and Esther Phillips, ...

Brand X: Locked & Loaded

Read "Locked & Loaded" reviewed by John Kelman

There are a great many bands whose lineups have been so fluid that keeping track of who was in the band when is no mean feat. Few bands have, however, had as complicated a history as Brand X. Even in its latest re-reincarnation, there's been a lineup shift between the high octane fusion group's January, 2017 ...

Sonar with David Torn: Vortex

Read "Vortex" reviewed by John Kelman

It might be all too simple to explain away Sonar, the Swiss twin-guitar/bass/drums quartet now in its eighth year together, through a series of touchstones. King Crimson, by way of that band's co-founder/guitarist Robert Fripp's Guitar Craft? Check. The influence of Nik Bartsch and Don Li's innovative meshing of Steve Reich-ian minimalism with deceptively complicated polyrhythmic ...

John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by John Kelman

For those who may have noticed, there have been no best of lists coming from yours truly since 2014; sadly, the chronic health problem that has reduced my previous writing pace to a crawl continues without much respite. My best of the year lists have always been predicated upon having reviewed the releases chosen, and with ...

Security Project: Contact

Read "Contact" reviewed by Geno Thackara

It's impossible to describe an outfit like the Security Project without that troublesome (if not entirely inaccurate) phrase “tribute band" popping up, complete with the inevitable baggage that term implies. It's usually reserved for countless local-level acts that entertain bar crowds with predictable staples on any given weekend, sure, but this group shoots for something much ...
