Read "Christy Doran: New Bag, New Tricks" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The opening concert at the 14th Bray Jazz Festival in May, just half an hour outside Dublin in County Wicklow, was something of a homecoming gig for Irish guitarist Christy Doran and his quartet New Bag. Doran was born 63 years ago, just a few short miles down the road from Bray, in Greystones, though at ...

Evan Parker / Urs Leimgruber: Twine

Read "Twine" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Twine, from saxophonists Evan Parker and Urs Leimgruber, is perhaps named for two strands twisted together to make a much stronger thread. The subtitle, however, might just be two saxophonists separated at birth.

Most people familiar with the legendary Parker know his unique sound and reign as the sovereign of freely improvised tenor and soprano ...

A Triple Bill of Keys & Drums

Read "A Triple Bill of Keys & Drums" reviewed by Robert Iannapollo

Three albums by keyboards and drums duos--two of them recorded in the early 1990s, the third in the noughties--demonstrate the wide and varied territory this pared down instrumentation can inhabit.

Joey Baron: Just Say Yes

Read "Joey Baron: Just Say Yes" reviewed by Sean Patrick Fitzell

Combining technical acuity with a deep sense of groove, Joey Baron drums with playful exuberance. Throughout his more than 35-year career, he's propelled experimentalists like guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist John Zorn, as well as mainstreamers like vocalist Carmen McRae and saxophonist David Sanborn. He's even played with pop stars David Bowie and Marianne Faithfull. But ...
