Bob Lark-Phil Woods Quintet: Thick As Thieves

Read "Thick As Thieves" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Remember the good old days when jazz groups came out swinging and took no prisoners until the battle had been won? Well, why settle for memories when you can lay your cares aside for an hour or so and groove to Thick as Thieves, the third and last album by the unrivaled and always-aggressive Bob Lark ...

Lili Añel: Another Place, Another Time

Read "Another Place, Another Time" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Lili Añel, one of Philadelphia's premier singer-songwriters, plays and sings with a lifetime's worth of emotion through the six songs on her 2017 EP Another Place, Another Time. Coming twenty years after her recorded debut, and her first release since 2013, Another Place plays on many of Añel's own heartstrings but also resonates with the listener's. ...

Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist

Read "Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Ralph Towner is a rather atypical figure in the vast world of jazz guitar. His instruments of choice are the classical guitar, which when he started, in the '60s, was played almost exclusively by guitarists related to Brazilian music like Charlie Byrd, Laurindo Almeida and Bola Sete, and the 12-string guitar, very common in the folk ...

Ralph Towner: un americano a Roma

Read "Ralph Towner: un americano a Roma" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Ralph Towner rappresenta sicuramente una figura atipica nel vasto mondo della chitarra jazz. In primo luogo per gli strumenti usati: la chitarra classica, che negli anni '60 in ambito jazzistico era utilizzata solamente da musicisti legati alla musica brasiliana come Charlie Byrd, Laurindo Almeida e Bola Sete, e la chitarra 12-corde, che proveniva dal mondo folk ...

Cory Weeds & the Jeff Hamilton Trio: Dreamsville

Read "Dreamsville" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Even though the substance and framework of jazz are constantly changing and evolving, the music's bedrock--marked by spontaneity and free-wheeling swing--remains essentially unimpaired and secure. And when it comes to swinging, it's hard to eclipse the irrepressible pulse of the tenor saxophone, an instrument whose long and enduring ties to jazz and swing have been epitomized ...

Possibilites: Get 'Em

Read "Get 'Em" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The saxophone/bass/drums grouping--at one time a rarity--seems to be undergoing a renewal of sorts. Drummer Rudy Royston offered up a fine example of the genre with Rise Of Orion (Greenleaf Music, 2016). Saxophonist JD Allen dove deep into the blues on Americana (Savant Records, 2016), and sax man Jason Rigby presented a breakout effort on the ...

Lew Tabackin: A Life in Jazz

Read "Lew Tabackin: A Life in Jazz" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum

Tenor saxophonist and flutist Lew Tabackin is known as a forceful and dynamic soloist, both in small group and big band settings. His views of the jazz music scene, both past and present, are equally compelling.

Recently, I had the opportunity to spend several hours with Mr. Tabackin for this interview. Rather than insert ...

Collegiate Jazz at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Read "Collegiate Jazz at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola" reviewed by Nick Catalano

For the better part of a decade I've escorted my jazz class at Pace University on trips to Dizzy's to see the Manhattan School of Music Concert Jazz Band perform. The series was forged by veteran jazz academic Justin DiCioccio whose leadership and programming has prompted a rarely noticed success of Collegiate jazz bands across the ...

Dominic Miller: From Sting to ECM

Read "Dominic Miller: From Sting to ECM" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

Dominic Miller's debut album for ECM, Silent Light, has all the qualities to become a sensation. After a career spanning nearly five decades during which he has lent his versatile artistry to the likes of Phil Collins, Tina Turner, Steve Winwood, Peter Gabriel, and Sting since 1993, Miller has released a very intimate and elegant quasi-solo ...

Dominic Miller: dalla corte di Sting a quella di Manfred Eicher

Read "Dominic Miller: dalla corte di Sting a quella di Manfred Eicher" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

La prima volta di Dominic Miller per la blasonata ECM Records ha tutte le caratteristiche di un vero evento discografico. Miller, chitarrista fra i più versatili in circolazione e che ha legato il suo nome a un'ormai storica militanza in studio e dal vivo accanto a Sting dai tempi di The Soul Cages (era il 1991, ...
