Borderlands Trio: Asteroidea

Read "Asteroidea" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I'll venture a guess that the listing of the names on Borderlands Trio's cover is arranged in alphabetic order, Crump, Davis, then McPherson. That is because nothing in the performance reveals a leader, nor a dominant signature. For adventurous listeners, isn't that exactly what we want from our improvisors?

In Gardens 2017 - Avant Jazz Outdoors in New York City

Read "In Gardens 2017 - Avant Jazz Outdoors in New York City" reviewed by John Sharpe

While the NYC-based artist lead co-operative Arts For Art might be best known for putting on the annual Vision Festival, that's by no means the full extent of its activities. One regular event among the year's schedule is the In Gardens concert series. As the name suggests, this entails presenting music in public open spaces in ...

Tyshawn Sorey: Verisimilitude

Read "Verisimilitude" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

So much has been said and written about Tyshawn Sorey's presence as a composer, performer and educator, that there is a threat of redundancy, even in adding new superlatives. Each release, however, demands attention to his exceptional and unmatched creativity. Putting aside Sorey's leader dates for the moment, those who have sought him out as a ...

Tyshawn Sorey: Verisimilitude

Read "Verisimilitude" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Given Tyshawn Sorey's propensity for shattering the boundaries between jazz, free improvisation and classical music, it's noteworthy that he decided to stick with just his regular trio for his latest release, Verisimilitude. His previous record, last year's Inner Spectrum of Variables (Pi), drew heavily from the streams of classical and new music, with the additional presence ...

Dutch multi-reedist Ab Baars has been active, mostly in Europe, since the 1970s, recording for several labels on the continent and touring in both rock and jazz capacities. His unique style had been dubbed “Ab Music" by the late Misha Mengelberg with whom he had recorded Circus (Instant Composers Pool, 2006) along with Han Bennick. More ...

Stephan Crump: Stephan Crump's Rhombal

Read "Stephan Crump's Rhombal" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Il nome di Stephan Crump viene in genere associato al jazz della scena recente, specie per la sua militanza nel trio del pianista Vijay Iyer. In realtà il bassista di Memphis vive a Brooklyn da oltre vent'anni e può vantare il curriculum di un veterano. Ha firmato da leader una decina di dischi, ha studiato ad ...
