Keune, Russell, Schneider, Lovens.: Nothing Particularly Horrible: Live in Bochum ‘93

Read "Nothing Particularly Horrible: Live in Bochum ‘93" reviewed by John Eyles

Recorded live in concert, in October 1993, at Museum Bochum, during the Ruhr Jazz Festival, this album is not a reissue but is being released for the first time, its wryly amusing title indicating that it has been declared fit for public consumption. In fact, the album's four tracks, being the only recordings of this Anglo-German ...

Joao Lencastre: Parallel Realities

Read "Parallel Realities" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Portuguese drummer João Lencastre titled his release Parallel Realities because upon initial listening you might get a notion this music is tether-less free improvisation. But upon further spins, an order appears from the farrago. How that order is generated is, well, the magician's art of pulling a rabbit from his hat. Parallel Realities follows ...

Frame Trio: Luminária

Read "Luminária" reviewed by John Sharpe

With freely improvised music, you have to trust that the performers will take you somewhere you want to go and that the journey itself will be as worthwhile as the destination, if not more so. Those expectations are more than met by the Frame Trio on Luminária, the first album by the collective of trumpeter Luís ...

Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra featuring Marilyn Crispell and Evan Parker: Parallel Moments Unbroken

Read "Parallel Moments Unbroken" reviewed by Matt Parker

For this album, living legends in the world of improvised music Marilyn Crispell and Evan Parker joined the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra as featured soloists in these recordings of two separate live performances of the same composition (hence the duplication of some track titles). Parallel Moments Unbroken was written by GIO founding member Raymond MacDonald, and commissioned ...

Robert Burke, Tony Malaby and Mark Helias: Head Under Water

Read "Head Under Water" reviewed by Troy Dostert

A heralded veteran of the Australian jazz scene, saxophonist Robert Burke has never been one to limit his artistic reach through idiomatic complacency. Just within the last couple years, he has collaborated with pianist (and fellow Australian) Paul Grabowsky on Gravity Project (Apollo Sounds, 2018)--an intriguing East-meets-West endeavor that merged traditional Japanese music, jazz, hip-hop and ...

Jasna Jovicevic Sextet: Flow Vertical

Read "Flow Vertical" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Serbian multi-instrumentalist Jasna Jovicevic seeks to bridge the worlds of chamber jazz and free improvisation on her latest release, Flow Vertical. But she's not content to stop there, as the album is animated by a heady concept drawing on Jovicevic's background in yoga to create music that is, as she puts it, “divided according to psychic ...

Delta Saxophone Quartet: Bowie, Berlin & Beyond

Read "Bowie, Berlin & Beyond" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This first-rate UK-based saxophone quartet has been in existence since 1984, and it is celebrated for its thought-provoking reimagining of well-known works from progressive rock icons such as King Crimson on Crimson! (Basho Music, 2016), and a cunning slant on Soft Machine, Dedicated to You... But You Weren't Listening (Moonjune, 2007). Here, the musicians derive inspiration ...

Peter Kuhn Trio: Intention

Read "Intention" reviewed by John Sharpe

Reedman Peter Kuhn's re-emergence on disc after a 35-year hiatus was one of the more heartening stories of 2016. Kuhn figured on the New York loft jazz scene during the latter half of the 1970s, releasing three LPs under his own leadership, notably Livin' Right, reissued to much acclaim as part of No Coming, No Going ...

Francois Carrier: Out Of Silence

Read "Out Of Silence" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There is this phenomena that is becoming apparent (at least to me) in the music of free jazz musicians. It is a deep-rooted insecurity. First I thought it was a component of the music, a certain stability in instability. But spinning the latest release from saxophonist François Carrier and drummer Michel Lambert, one gets the sense ...

Evan Parker / John Russell / Ian Brighton / Philipp Wachsmann / Marcio Mattos / Trevor Taylor: Reunion – Live From Cafe Oto

Read "Reunion – Live From Cafe Oto" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Ian Brighton, musically dormant for around three decades, had a welcome renaissance a year ago with his album for Confront Recordings, Now And Then. Included on that album was an archival track, “30 Years From Yesterday" recorded in 1986 with Philipp Wachsmann, Marcio Mattos and Trevor Taylor. This quartet was collectively known as String Thing and ...
