The Ganelin Trio: Creative Tensions

Read "The Ganelin Trio: Creative Tensions" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Imagine a time, not so very long ago, when a foreign Jazz/Improvising Trio created such a stir in Britain that they made the TV news! Imagine the national newspapers queuing round the block for interviews. And imagine London's Bloomsbury Theatre filled with musicians, journalists and arts administrators--not to mention the odd, very odd, raincoated spook.

Slava Ganelin, Alexey Kruglov, Oleg Yudanov: Us

Read "Us" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Con lo stesso titolo di uno dei più celebrati album di Peter Gabriel, torna un artista nel suo orticello altrettanto leggendario, quello Slava (al secolo Vyacheslav) Ganelin che a cavallo fra anni Settanta e Ottanta alla testa del ben noto Ganelin Trio fece alzare le orecchie a parecchi a proposito di quanto il nuovo jazz era ...

Jazz From Around the World: Europe

Read "Jazz From Around the World: Europe" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Jazz has had a universal appeal since its inception. As soon as the music left its cradle of jny: New Orleans in the early years of the 20th century it quickly spread to all corners of the world. Europeans were among the first non-Americans to embrace the music and place their unique twist on it. Below ...

Vladimir Tarasov Trio: Intuitus

Read "Intuitus" reviewed by John Eyles

Born in 1946, drummer Vladimir Tarasov long ago assured his place in the history of jazz and improvised music through his membership--from 1971 to 1986--of the Ganelin Trio, one of the first groups from the USSR to become renowned and achieve critical acclaim outside of their homeland. Since 1968, Tarasov has been a resident of Vilnius, ...

Alexey Kruglov: Identification

Read "Identification" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Since the advent of the legendary Ganelin Trio, Russia's avant-garde impetus has made significant leaps since the Cold War era of the 1970s. One young artist continuing in this mode is saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Alexey Kruglov. With his fourth date as a leader, he intermittently performs on two saxophones at once, and puts the mouthpieces aside ...

Rivière Composers' Pool

Summer Works 2009

Emanem

2010

Summer Works 2009 is, very possibly, one of the finest testaments to spontaneously composed contemporary music since saxophonist Steve Lacy fired his first broadsides in Europe almost four decades ago. The music flies in the face of logic--how can two,three or four ...

Une, Deux, Trois: Solo, Duo and Trio Improvisation from Europe

Read "Une, Deux, Trois: Solo, Duo and Trio Improvisation from Europe" reviewed by Clifford Allen

At one point in time, the term “European Improvisation" meant something quite specific, carrying with it an air of otherness to American jazz audiences, solidarity to European jazz audiences, and presented rarified and sometimes unruly music based on folk, classical and open forms. In the ensuing decades, the world has grown a bit smaller, and intercontinental ...

Ganelin Trio Priority: Live in Lugano 2006

Read "Live in Lugano 2006" reviewed by Marc Medwin

There's nothing like hearing a group in concert to reawaken interest. The Ganelin Trio Priority played a staggering set on the penultimate evening of the June, 2007 Vision Festival, a continuous and constantly morphing shock-and-awe campaign in which all national and international demarcations were obliterated.

Slava Ganelin himself, the founder and only original member of the ...

Pianist Vyacheslav Ganelin is arguably Soviet Russia's most significant improvising export. Of course, the unreceptive atmosphere during the early part of his career made renown in his native Lithuania untenable, but fans of international ...

The Ganelin Trio: 15 Year Reunion: Live At The Frankfurt Book Fair

Read "15 Year Reunion: Live At The Frankfurt Book Fair" reviewed by Dave Wayne

The Ganelin Trio reunion is cause for celebration. Coming from the USSR—a country that attempted to ban the saxophone after World War II—the group caused quite a stir back in the early ‘80s. Some may remember the cloak-and-dagger tales: the master tapes for their first commercially-issued recordings available outside the USSR were literally smuggled out of ...
