Rathbun's writing shows the influence of another Canadian, Kenny Wheeler, in its lush sonority, the frequent gorgeous flugelhorn solos by Tim Hagans and the role ...

Andrew Rathbun: Atwood Suites

Read "Atwood Suites" reviewed by Paul Rauch

The mingling of jazz music and poetry is not a new concept. It has always been an amiable, yet at times, uncomfortable fit. From a verse standpoint, it is in many ways liberating. While most vocalized lyrics and spoken word forms rely on rhyme to speak to cadence and rhythm, free verse poetry liberates the narrative ...

Andrew Rathbun: Atwood Suites

Read "Atwood Suites" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

In a way, the Atwood Suites have been in the works for almost two decades. When Kenny Wheeler approached Toronto native Andrew Rathbun in search for a band in 2001, the former furthermore inquired if the latter would like a composition of his own penning to be performed beside Wheeler's “Suite Time Suite." Consequently, the “Power ...

Read "Atwood Suites" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The marriage between jazz and poetry is having a true moment in the present artistic sphere. The two have long mixed and mingled, oft proving sympathetic and symbiotic in their multidirectional moves, unique cadences, and improvisational capacities.

Brooklyn Jazz Underground: A Trio of Hits

Read "Brooklyn Jazz Underground: A Trio of Hits" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner

Modern jazz has a problem. And Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records' recent slate of releases illustrates the growing dilemma: a surfeit of excellence.

Across the spectrum, artists are innovating at such a high level and plumbing the depths of musical expression with such regularity that it's hard to keep pace (or avoid hyperbole). Jazz's aperture ...

Jeremy Siskind: Finger-Songwriter

Read "Finger-Songwriter" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

A due anni dal cd d'esordio Simple Songs, Jeremy Siskind conferma le coordinate di fondo della sua estetica in un quadro espressivo più organico e maturo. In questo lavoro ritroviamo la propensione verso climi cantabili, spesso coniugati alla forma canzone ma il progetto è finalmente coerente e caratterizzato da reminiscenze tradizionali (il jazz pre-boppistico, il song da film-noir). Una relazione ...
