Bill Bruford's Earthworks: Earthworks Complete

Read "Earthworks Complete" reviewed by John Kelman

Since retiring as a professional musician in 2009, progressive/art rock turned jazz drummer Bill Bruford has successfully managed to maintained a place in the public eye. Beyond his engaging, informative and successful Bill Bruford: The Autobiography (Jawbone Press, 2009), the drummer/percussionist has more recently released a second, equally captivating book, Uncharted: Creativity and the Expert Drummer ...

Marc Copland: Gary

Read "Gary" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Marc Copland is the perfect interpreter of the music of bassist Gary Peacock. The artists' musical relationship began over three decades ago, and continues to this day. Peacock, best known perhaps for his long tenure in pianist Keith Jarrett's “Standards Trio," has played on numerous Copland recordings, including At Night (Sunnyside, 1992), Softly (Savoy Jazz, ...

Bruford: Seems Like a Lifetime Ago 1977 - 1980

Read "Seems Like a Lifetime Ago 1977 - 1980" reviewed by John Kelman

With the plethora of box sets being issued these days with new masters and, perhaps even more importantly, new mixes of classic recordings, it was inevitable that the small but significant discography of drummer Bill Bruford's first steps into a solo career with his band Bruford should finally get the deluxe treatment. Seems Like a Lifetime ...

Manolo Cabras

Read "Manolo Cabras" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Roberto Dani, Drama (stella nera, 2009)

Sono pochi gli artisti che riescono a esprimersi in maniera così naturale in solo. Un disco tridimensionale!!!!!

2. Edward Vesala, Lumi (ECM, 1987)

Per gli amanti dell'ECM anni '80. Un progetto decisamente originale con un'orchestrazione di ampio spettro e atipica. Divertente.

The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever!

Read "The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever!" reviewed by John Kelman

In a time when album sales are a challenge being mitigated, at least to some extent, by the release of deluxe editions and box sets, it's still more necessary than ever to grab potential listeners with imagery and words; the title of a box set can have, especially for those less than intimately familiar with the ...

Frank Kimbrough: Solstice

Read "Solstice" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Pianist Frank Kimbrough's latest offering, Solstice on the Pirouet label, is a joy from beginning to end.

Pirouet is the home of some other fine piano trios, including those of Marc Copland (see Some Love Songs, Modinha, Voices and Night Whispers).

Copland, arguably working from the Bill Evans aesthetic is, of course, ...

Frank Kimbrough: Solstice

Read "Solstice" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

A stellar interlude of three-way instrumental interplay can be found on composer/conductor Maria Schneider's first masterpiece, Concert In The Garden (ArtistShare, 2004), on the set's title tune, beginning about five and a half minutes in. Ben Monder lays down a ghostly guitar solo that climbs to an eerie climax, as a handoff to pianist Frank Kimbrough, ...

Frank Kimbrough: Solstice

Read "Solstice" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Gravitas and weightlessness may seem like odd compeers, but both are ill at ease with one another and beautifully in league in the music of pianist Frank Kimbrough. On Solstice--the latest of many fine trio dates in Kimbrough's discography, and his first release on the Pirouet imprint--Kimbrough does what he does best, conjuring the elements through ...

Nels Cline: Lovers

Read "Lovers" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

No one can accuse guitarist Nels Cline of being predictable. He has recorded with his avant-garde trio the Nels Cline Singers most consistently (with bassist Devin Hoff and drummer Scott Amendola), but also led larger groups, such as the one on New Monastery (Cryptogramophone, 2006). More recently there was his duet with guitarist Julian Lage on ...
