Tom Rainey: Float Upstream

Read "Float Upstream" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Da queste parti, si sa, nutriamo profonda ammirazione per Tom Rainey, percussionista geniale sia nelle cornici convenzionali che nelle ampie libertà della post-avanguardia.

Il suo quintetto Obbligato da qualche tempo si occupa di affrontare gli standards da un punto di vista si potrebbe dire cool-free ---se ci si passa l'azzardata etichettatura --innervandoli di ...

Ingrid Laubrock: Contemporary Chaos Practices

Read "Contemporary Chaos Practices" reviewed by Don Phipps

From the first startling attack of Contemporary Chaos Practices, Ingrid Laubrock lets the listener know she wants your attention. And the music is certainly attention-grabbing. Or would startling, fascinating, and incredible be better words? For nothing quite sets the table for what the listener will experience on this album. It is as if heaven and earth ...

Kyoko Kitamura's Tidepool Fauna: Protean Labyrinth

Read "Protean Labyrinth" reviewed by John Sharpe

For her second leadership outing following Armadillo In Sunset Park (self produced, 2012), vocalist Kyoko Kitamura assembles a group which she calls Tidepool Fauna. And giving the group an identity seems entirely appropriate as what they create is very much an ensemble music. That's made all the easier by having such accomplished talents as saxophonist Ingrid ...

Sara Serpa: Close Up

Read "Close Up" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Finalmente un album pienamente convincente della cantante portoghese (qui anche autrice di tutto il materiale tematico), spesso preziosa, nella sua produzione, ma altrove (anche all'interno di uno stesso lavoro, suo o altrui) un po' disarticolata, quasi schizoide, magari solo curiosa, e comunque alterna nella resa in concreto. Sarà senz'altro anche merito dei due musicisti che l'affiancano, ...

Anthony Braxton Quartet: (Willisau) 1991 Studio

Read "(Willisau) 1991 Studio" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Picture Miles Davis finishing a solo and stepping off the bandstand to smoke, while John Coltrane steps up to the microphone to play. I'll bet that never happened with the legendary Anthony Braxton Quartet (1985-1994). His quartet with pianist Marilyn Crispell, bassist Mark Dresser, and drummer Gerry Hemingway may be the best vehicle to appreciate Braxton's ...

23rd Annual Vision Festival
Roulette
New York, NY
May 23-28, 2018

Introduction The Vision Festival somewhat surprisingly but reassuringly stands proud as the longest-lived annually produced jazz festival in New York. While the central plank remains what the Festival terms avant jazz, it's interspersed with poetry, dance, art, and ...

Kristo Rodzevski: The Rabbit and the Fallen Sycamore

Read "The Rabbit and the Fallen Sycamore" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

A glancing blow from Kristo Rodzevski's trilogy-concluding The Rabbit and the Fallen Sycamore will bring to mind a Matthew Sweet on mushrooms crossed with Morrissey in a good, if silly, mood. Preceded by Batania (Self Produced, 2015) and Bitter Almonds (Self Produced, 2017), The Rabbit completes Rodzevski's evolution into a musician capable of drawing consonance out ...

Bray Jazz Festival
Various Venues
jny:Bray, Ireland
May 4-6, 2018

From the hilltop vantage point the Irish Sea lies veiled under a blanket of thick mist. Greystones, five miles to the right, birthplace of the great Christy Doran, peeks out, seemingly floating above the misty clouds like a Roger ...

Clean Feed 2018

Read "Clean Feed 2018" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Since it's inception in 2002, Lisbon, Portugal's Clean Feed Records has released nearly 500 recordings. Last year the total was 64. Keeping up with their output might be the best way to follow innovative jazz and improvised music in the 21st century. Besides releasing music by masters such as Peter Brotzmann, Joe McPhee, Ivo Perelman, Elliott ...

Alina Bzhezhinska: Inspiration

Read "Inspiration" reviewed by Chris May

Among the highpoints of London's 2017 jazz diary was the Barbican Centre's A Concert for Alice and John. The event commemorated the 50th and 10th anniversaries of the passing of John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane. It was headlined by Pharoah Sanders, the most distinguished surviving member of bands led by the Coltranes, who turned in an ...
