Morten Haxholm: Vestigium

Read "Vestigium" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

The world of bass players in modern and post-bop jazz can be divided into two currents. On the one hand, you'll find the dominant character who leads the compositions with a decisive hand and frequent moments of striking ostinatos. On the other, one finds a personality who seems to walk through the composition and, like camouflage, ...

David Lyttle: Leading Jazz Into The Hinterlands

Read "David Lyttle: Leading Jazz Into The Hinterlands" reviewed by Ian Patterson

There was a time when jazz groups would zig-zag all over the country, by train, in customized buses or in cars, playing date after date in towns big and small. Tours that kept a band on the road for months at a time were once the norm for many jazz outfits--the bread and butter of countless ...

Quentin Angus: In Stride

Read "In Stride" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Quentin Angus comes across as the kind of player who's seemingly absorbed everything in developing a repertoire--one whose extensive study lets him draw on any style and throw out familiar licks on a whim. Here we have soft electric tones worthy of Grant Green crossed with the expansive compositional smarts of Pat Metheny. Fleet lines and ...

Neil Slater: Legacy: Neil Slater at North Texas

Read "Legacy: Neil Slater at North Texas" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In 1942, a University of North Texas graduate music student, M. E. Hall, was asked to teach dance band arranging to two students, an activity that led to his thesis on a closely related topic. That thesis developed into the foundation of the school's jazz curriculum. Years later, Hall helped launch the jazz program which included ...

Ari Hoenig: The Pauper And The Magician

Read "The Pauper And The Magician" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Concept albums have largely been the domain of progressive rock bands, whilst jazzers tend to prefer the term 'suite' to describe thematically linked pieces of music. Ari Hoenig's The Pauper and the Magician is arguably more the former than the latter, as these six compositions are inspired by a fable-like tale of Hoenig's design, without overt ...
