A World of Piano Trios

Read "A World of Piano Trios" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The piano trio format is alive and well, judging by this disparate collection of piano trio albums (mostly: a couple of them feature a guest vocalist on a track or two). They come from Israel (recorded in Berlin), Slovenia (recorded in New York City), Greece (recorded in Hungary), Boston, and Asheville, North Carolina. Traditionally the pianist ...

Alex Hitchcock: All Good Things

Read "All Good Things" reviewed by Roger Farbey

The Alex Hitchcock Quintet's first record, Live at the London and Cambridge Jazz Festivals, was released in 2018 as an EP on Mondo Tunes. But at around 40 minutes this could easily have passed muster as a pukka LP. It was also a very impressive debut indeed, captured live from gigs performed in 2016 and 2017 ...

Yaniv Taubenhouse Trio: Perpetuation: Moments In Trio Volume Two

Read "Perpetuation: Moments In Trio Volume Two" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Anyone with an antenna out for an exciting, new(ish) piano trio would do well to give Yaniv Taubenhouse a listen. The Israeli-born and now New York-based pianist offers up his third recording, tagged Perpetuation: Moments In Trio Volume Two, bringing to mind Brad Mehldau's five Art of the Trio recordings on Warner Brothers Records, released between ...

David Ambrosio: Four On The Road

Read "Four On The Road" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Bassist David Ambrosio and his trio indulge in smooth sailing, partly due to alto saxophonist Loren Stillman's feathery tones via these largely, medium-tempo bop works, complete with contrapuntal type exchanges and spry breakouts. Several of these piece seem to intertwine within a similar framework and cadence, although there are a few free-form sorties, sparked ...

MUSICIAN Born:

Lena Bloch

“In jazz”, muses Lena Bloch, “many things come together that are thought of as opposites: mind and feeling, responsibility and abandonment, looseness and precision, improvisation and composition. I just love that.” Lena’s love for jazz has taken her on a challenging and circuitous voyage. Lena moved from Israel to Europe in 1991, where she became a part of the European jazz scene (Germany and Holland) for 12 years, finally came to the United States, earning Master's Degree in Composition and moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2008, where she quickly became a contributor to one of the most fertile and interesting jazz scenes of recent memory

Dave Allen: The Sky Above Her

Read "The Sky Above Her" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Guitarist Dave Allen's satiny-smooth tone and precise technique belie an intrepid sensibility that is eager to rise to the surface. So unsuspecting listeners who cue up the title track of The Sky Above Her, Allen's third album as a leader, might at first be tricked into thinking they'll be listening to something easy on the ears, ...

Read "RUTHENIA - Retrospective of Russian Composers of the 20th Century" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

He pays tribute to the great Russian composers of the 20th Century: Shostakovich, Scriabin, Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Rachmaninoff (the title “Ruthenia" is a Latin name for the Russian border provinces and their ...
