Yoko Miwa Trio: Pathways

Read "Pathways" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Yoko Miwa is a pianist operating in the Boston area whose stylistic reach touches on funky gospel, bluesy bebop and dramatic pomp. She and her long time trio jump out nicely from the first track, the surging gospel rhythms of Marc Johnson's “Log O'Rhythm," drummer Scott Goulding providing a solid shuffle foundation to Miwa's pounding. They ...

Thelonious Monk: Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960

Read "Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's nearly impossible to underestimate the importance of the discovery of the tapes Thelonious Monk made for the French film Les Liasons Dangereuses 1960. Recorded in New York in July 1959, the session, although used in the film, was filed away for some 55 years. Recovered and remastered, we hear not only the soundtrack, but alternate ...

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 ...

The Bill Evans Trio: On A Monday Evening

Read "On A Monday Evening" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Ricordo interviste in cui Bill Evans puntualizzava l'ossessione per l'esercizio, un'insicurezza stabile, che lo faceva provare in continuazione anche il minimo dettaglio. Sembra grottesco, all'ascolto soltanto del prologo di “Sugar Plum," dove la fraseologia evansiana sgorga come acqua di fonte e dove si intuirebbe un'innata facilità per l'assoluta padronanza strumentale. Ma evidentemente c'era un lavoro febbrile ...

New York, NY
April 24, 2017

Saturday, April 22, was an unusually good day. It started, blessedly, when the president did not tweet out a series of early morning fabrications/accusations to befuddle the free world. And it could only get better from there: It was Earth Day! Scientists ...

Jack Wilson: Something Personal – 1966

Read "Jack Wilson: Something Personal – 1966" reviewed by Marc Davis

Maybe I'm imagining it, but pianist Jack Wilson owes a great big thank-you to John Coltrane on Something Personal. At least that's how I hear it on the opening track, “Most Unsoulful Woman," one of two highlights on this 1966 album.

Coltrane, the legendary saxman, released his masterpiece A Love Supreme in 1965. It ...

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 ...

Christian Sands: Reach

Read "Reach" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

A lot plays into the success of an artist's reach, with content and presentation obviously ranking high on the list. But above all, an artist has to be willing to extend a hand if they expect listeners to do the same. Many simply reach for the musical stars without really considering the need to reach out ...
