Read "Live at Village Vanguard Vol. 1 (The Embedded Sets)" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Decades after he had migrated from Chicago to New York to briefly play in the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, saxophonist/composer Steve Coleman took to the Village Vanguard stage that Jones and Lewis had occupied for more than twenty years. Since 2015, Coleman and his Five Elements group have made the club an annual event in their ...

Steve Coleman & Five Elements: Live at Village Vanguard Vol. 1 (The Embedded Sets)

Read "Live at Village Vanguard Vol. 1 (The Embedded Sets)" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

È solamente da tre anni che gli organici di Steve Coleman si esibiscono con regolarità al Village Vanguard di New York. Ma il club, si sa, profuma di leggenda, e anche il sassofonista chicagoano non ha resistito alla sirena che reclamava il classico “live" nel tempio della Settima Avenue.

Steve Coleman's Natal Eclipse: Morphogenesis

Read "Morphogenesis" reviewed by Troy Dostert

After his 2015 masterpiece, Synovial Joints, alto saxophonist/composer Steve Coleman left his listeners wondering how he could try to top that extraordinary project. With 21 musicians and an ambitious melding of classical and jazz instrumentation with intricate compositional decisions, Coleman used that record to reveal yet another dimension of his constantly-evolving musical concept--one that's been changing ...

Miles Okazaki: Trickster

Read "Trickster" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

There is nothing deceptive about guitarist Miles Okazaki's Trickster. It is simply an elegantly crafted work that engages with its narrative quality and its darkly hued, intriguing texture. On his fourth release as a leader the New York based Okazaki leads a quartet that consists of two of his bandmates from altoist Steve Coleman's Five Elements, ...

Miles Okazaki: Trickster

Read "Trickster" reviewed by Nicola Negri
