Eva Cortés: Crossing Borders

Read "Crossing Borders" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Honduras born vocalist/composer Eva Cortes is, in some ways, a cultural anomaly. Her sound has roots in her Latin American heritage, but bears the aesthetic traits of her upbringing in Sevilla, Spain.

On Crossing Borders, Cortés solicits the assistance of master producer/trombonist /arranger Doug Beavers to produce a vibrant recording that reflects her rich ...

Morten Kargaard Septet: Origin

Read "Origin" reviewed by Budd Kopman

The Danish jazz scene is very alive and eclectic as shown by Origin, composer and guitarist Morten Kargaard's beautiful album that defies all attempts at attaching a label.

The question, “What is jazz?" is not answered within the album's musical universe and for that matter, neither is the even wider notion of “creative improvised ...

Victory Jazz Quartet: Origin

Read "Origin" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Most of the jazz fusion groups of the 1970s threw more instruments into the mix than flugelhornist Al Moretti does on Origin. His Victory Jazz Quartet finds Moretti with his horn, fronting a simple rhythm section--keyboard, bass and drums.

Fusion evolved from trumpeter Miles Davis' In a Silent Way (Columbia Records, 1969), sparkling music ...

Emre Kartari Quartet: Origin

Read "Origin" reviewed by John Kelman

A line-up featuring two horns (saxophone and trumpet), and two percussionists (tympani and drum kit) might seem an odd choice, but for Turkish drummer Emre Kartari it's simply a different means to a very musical end. Make no mistake: while there's plenty of free play on Origin, it's based around conceptual sketches, written by Kartari, that ...

Origin: Originations: The Music Of Chick Corea & Origin

Read "Originations: The Music Of Chick Corea & Origin" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Who would have thought that Chick Corea's latest musical explorations would lead to the origins of an exceptional group of musicians recording jointly and individually and influencing even more musicians along the way? In actuality, many of the Origin musicians started in bassist Avishai Cohen's group, which invokes multi-cultural muses; wisely, Corea scooped them up in ...

Chick Corea & Origin: Origin

Read "Origin" reviewed by Jim Santella

Recorded live at the Blue Note, Chick Corea's new working unit, Origin, plays straight-ahead acoustic modern mainstream jazz. The band includes trombonist Steve Davis, saxophonists Bob Sheppard and Steve Wilson, acoustic bassist Avishai Cohen, and drummer Adam Cruz. All tracks except “It Could Happen To You" are Corea's compositions. Since it's a live session and since ...

Chick Corea: Origin

Read "Origin" reviewed by Robert Spencer

In the early Seventies, Chick Corea played in Circle with Anthony Braxton, Dave Holland and Barry Altschul. Braxton, of course, was moving fast toward musical experimentation; Corea, in the grip of Scientology, wanted to go in a more commercial direction. Twenty-five years later, Braxton is a grand old man of the avant-garde, and Chick Corea is ...
