Ernesto Cervini's Turboprop: Abundance

Read "Abundance" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Delve into Toronto-based drummer Ernesto Cervini's discography and you find an artist who seems to be trying to be a force for good in the world. His CD releases feature his Ernesto Cervini Quartet, MEM3, Myraid3, and Turboprop (and others, for he is prolific). His is a sound that brims with buoyancy, whether it's a trio ...

Anat Cohen - Fred Hersch: Live In Healdsburg

Read "Live In Healdsburg" reviewed by Doug Collette

Equally distinctive as they are, the respective instrumental styles of pianist Fred Hersch and clarinetist Anat Cohen are almost mirror images of each other. That is, the former is generally a formal, dignified presence on his instrument, yet he has a readily discernible playful side that comes out at regular intervals. The latter, on the other ...

Amy Cervini: No One Ever Tells You

Read "No One Ever Tells You" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

As we mature, grow, and enter new phases of life, we constantly discover things that no one ever told us about. In those revelations, be they related to profession, partnership, or parenthood, the truth stands naked. Sometimes it's enlightening in its disrobing; other times it's mildly depressing in its unfolding; and on occasion, it's absolutely gut-wrenching ...

Anat Cohen: Happy Song

Read "Happy Song" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il 2017 è stato un anno superlativo per Anat Cohen. Nuovamente eletta migliore clarinettista nei referendum di critica e di pubblico di Down Beat, ha pubblicato due splendidi album di musica brasiliana (Rosa dos Ventos e Outra Coisa rispettivamente col Trio Brasileiro e con Marcello Gonçalves) e ha chiuso l'anno con il debutto di questo tentet ...

The Art of the Duo: Keys and Reeds

Read "The Art of the Duo: Keys and Reeds" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Two duos, both alike in dignity, though taking the approach to very different ends:

Anat Cohen and Fred Hersch
Live in Healdsburg
Anzic Records
2018

What's taken these two so long? Okay, of course they've both juggled collaborations and cross-pollinations in many different contexts, and considering the nature ...

Anat Cohen/Fred Hersch: Live In Healdsburg

Read "Live In Healdsburg" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When you think of these two lauded artists, duo encounters aren't the first thing likely to come to mind. Pianist Fred Hersch spends most of his time toggling between solo and trio work, and it's almost impossible to keep up with the size and/or scope of clarinetist Anat Cohen's varied pursuits. But that's not to say ...

Old, Borrowed and Just a Little Blue

Read "Old, Borrowed and Just a Little Blue" reviewed by Geno Thackara

How many collections of standards does the jazz world really need? The answer, of course, is that there's always room for more as long as the players and listeners can find something relevant and fresh. Every piece on offer in this batch has been around for several decades at least, but these old things never fail ...

Hilary Gardner/Ehud Asherie: The Late Set

Read "The Late Set" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

If you're looking for the definition of a class act, look no more. This is most certainly it. With The Late Set, kindred spirits Hilary Gardner and Ehud Asherie make us simultaneously pine for an era long gone and appreciate what's right in front of us.

If you've followed either one of these ...

Ernesto Cervini's Turboprop: Rev

Read "Rev" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The Toronto-based septet Turboprop serves, in part, as an arrangement-expanding vehicle for  drummer/leader Ernesto Cervini. With his work in two ongoing, outstanding trio's--MEM3 and Myriad3--Cervini helps shape modernist jazz in the piano trio mode. Turboprop, with its three horn front line--two saxophones and a trombone--gets the chance to stretch his arranging chops, with Rev, the group's ...
