Howard Johnson and Gravity: Testimony

Read "Testimony" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il Gravity di Howard Johnson è un organico dedito esclusivamente alla timbrica grave (basso tuba, principalmente) con solisti e sezione ritmica. Il progetto risale addirittura al 1968 ma registrò il suo primo disco solo nel 1996 perchè tutte le etichette lo rifiutavano. Alla fine Johnson convinse i dirigenti della Verve, che non se ne pentirono viste ...

Arthur Blythe, 1940-2017: A Remembrance

Read "Arthur Blythe, 1940-2017: A Remembrance" reviewed by Todd S. Jenkins

The emotive power of Arthur Blythe's bracing alto saxophone tone and flighty phrasing set him apart from many of his generation. A poet, a muezzin, an angry activist, a lamenting lover: Blythe conjured a broad array of sonic images through his nonpareil approach to music. The beloved altoist, who had battled Parkinson's disease for the past ...

Dave Burrell, Bob Stewart: The Crave

Read "The Crave" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Concepito in forma di LP, con un lato A ("The Crave," “Popolo Paniolo," “I Am His Brother," “Pua Mae 'Ole") e un lato B ("New Orleans Blues," “Spanish Swat"), questo curioso album, risalente addirittura al 1994 (13 giugno, live a Colonia), affianca due musicisti all'epoca ben più di oggi attivi sulla scena del jazz--diciamo così--post-free in ...

Daniel Herskedal: The Roc

Read "The Roc" reviewed by Roger Farbey

The Roc is Norwegian tuba player Daniel Herskedal's follow-up album to his 2015 recording for Edition Records, Slow Eastbound Train which like its predecessor again features Eydolf Dale on piano and Helge Andreas Norbakken on percussion. However, that record also benefitted from the massive Trondheim Soloists chamber string orchestra.

A pastoral beginning with “The ...

Howard Johnson and Gravity: Testimony

Read "Testimony" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Howard Johnson really should need no introduction. He's played with many of the greats including Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp, Hank Crawford, Jack De Johnette and Gil Evans (his solo on “Voodoo Child" was a highlight of Evans's Jimi Hendrix tribute album). He also appeared on Carla Bley's seminal 1971 album Escalator Over The Hill. Throughout his ...

Howard Johnson and Gravity: Testimony

Read "Testimony" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Those who see the tuba as a sluggish, unwieldy instrument capable only of rounding out a musical composition in the lower register may have to rethink that appraisal after listening to Testimony, in which multi-instrumentalist and tuba master Howard Johnson ushers no less than half a dozen tubas and rhythm through their paces in a session ...

Le Rex: Wild Man / Ingrid Laubrock: Ubatuba

Read "Le Rex: Wild Man / Ingrid Laubrock: Ubatuba" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Due organici praticamente identici (fiati + batteria) con un ruolo importante riservato alla tuba.

Sembrano lontani i tempi in cui questo strumento aveva ritrovato agilità e stupore, sotto le dita di Howard Johnson o Bob Stewart. Ora i fremiti bassi e rugosi dell'ottone glorioso sono esaltati nei ritmi delle musiche di Henry Threadgill ...

Dave Burrell: Pianist Navigating the Windward Passages

Read "Dave Burrell: Pianist Navigating the Windward Passages" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

Dave Burrell is a master pianist and composer who encountered the avant-garde in the 1960s and has been following his own independent path ever since. He combines classical and jazz elements that are both “inside" and “outside" the mainstream. The title of a poem by J.V. Cunningham, “The Metaphysical Amorist" characterizes much of his playing, which ...
