Anders Svanoe: 747 Queen Of The Skies: State Of The Baritone Vol. 3

Read "747 Queen Of The Skies: State Of The Baritone Vol. 3" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Recall a common theme you would hear on an episode of Star Trek, the 1960s television show, not the fatuous films and modern remakes. Captain Kirk would order “more power Mr Scott," and the reply always was, “I've giv'n her all she's got captain, an' I canna give her no more." The same lines come to ...

Kirk Knuffke: Witness

Read "Witness" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Kirk Knuffke has brought his cornet skills to a lot of different music in his career. As a leader, he has recorded albums dedicated to the work of Erik Satie and Don Cherry and he's even covered an Ernest Tubb song. This album gives a greater picture of how wide his interests stretch as he delves ...

Jason Palmer: Rhyme And Reason

Read "Rhyme And Reason" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Jazz albums without chordal instruments can sometimes sound arid. But that is decidedly not the case with Jason Palmer's Rhyme And Reason. The members of his quartet fit together organically, and the contrapuntal interplay between the trumpeter and his co-front man, tenorist Mark Turner, is remarkably tight. But the backline too is populated by a taut ...

James Brandon Lewis: An Unruly Manifesto

Read "An Unruly Manifesto" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The revolution will not be televised. Those words by Gil Scott-Heron from 1970 are more relevant to today's jazz revolution than any time since the mid-1990s, when conservatively-dressed youngsters mimicked the post-bop of the 1960s and were promoted as liberators. More recently, the touted saviors rehash a quasi-spiritual fusion that stands in for à la mode ...

Reto Anneler: Stille Post

Read "Stille Post" reviewed by James Fleming

Stille Post is a record as spacious as a solar system. Reto Anneler's alto and Cristoph Grab's tenor move around the rhythm section like planets orbiting a distant sun. And when the two horns align, the music glows with the red light of an eclipse, shining down on the spare basslines and pointed drumming of Claudio ...

Chris Pasin: Ornettiquette

Read "Ornettiquette" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Included on an album dedicated to the legendary Ornette Coleman, it is “Ghosts," a composition by saxophonist Albert Ayler. Trumpeter Chris Pasin assembled an impressive collection of musicians to record Ornettiquette with Karl Berger and vocalist Ingrid Sertso, both connected to the 1960s revolution through their work with Coleman and Don Cherry. In addition, there's saxophonist ...

It's time to celebrate November birthdays! Among the worthies, we also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Phil Woods recording Alive and Well in Paris, which was slated for release on Impulse! in the States, but never released here; there must be a story about this, but I'm in the dark. It is an absolutely stunning ...

Roberto Ottaviano: Eternal Love

Read "Eternal Love" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Dopo il lavoro dedicato in spirito a John Coltrane pur senza omaggi diretti (Sideralis) e quello precedente dedicato a Steve Lacy (Forgotten Matches), Roberto Ottaviano ha sentito il bisogno di “un “bagno mistico" in cui il Jazz si fa infine Musica Totale, ma sopratutto travalica l'idea fine a se stessa di fare musica, per scavare a ...
