The Last Night At The Old Place

Read "The Last Night At The Old Place" reviewed by Duncan Heining

By any standards the release of The Last Night At The Old Place will prove to be one of archive releases of the year, second only, perhaps, to the 'Lost' Coltrane album. All power, therefore, to Mike Gavin who has inherited the Cadillac catalogue from the late John Jack with his first release of archive material. ...

Hans Teuber & Jeff Johnson: Deuce

Read "Deuce" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Bassist Jeff Johnson and multi-reedist Hans Teuber have a musical and personal friendship that goes back to the late eighties when both first arrived in the northwest outpost that is the city of Seattle. The jazz scene in the Pacific Northwest has always been prolific, though to many, a hidden gem outside of the main pulse ...

Massimo Colombo: Powell To The People

Read "Powell To The People" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Powell To The People could certainly be heard as a tribute to jazz pianist Bud Powell. It could just as easily be heard as an introduction to the legend's iconic music. It fulfills both categories with the emotion and virtuosity Powell exuded in his playing.

Powell pioneered a new era of post swing bebop ...

Dizzy Gillespie: Concert of the Century - Tribute to Charlie Parker

Read "Concert of the Century - Tribute to Charlie Parker" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Queste incisioni dal vivo a Montreal erano uscite in LP in quantità limitata. Dopo 30 anni, l'edizione in CD aggiunge quasi mezzora di musica e varia di poco la scaletta musicale.

Il concerto è del novembre 1980 e trova questo sestetto di veterani del bop ancora abbastanza in forma, sia anagrafica che artistica, considerando ...

Read "Six on Cellar Live" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Cory Weeds' record label Cellar Live has become a welcome home to straight-ahead mainstream jazz in the same way that Arbors Records has been the beacon for traditional jazz and swing. Think Norman Granz's Pablo label tele-transported deep into the 21st Century. Six recent releases illuminate Cellar Live's importance to jazz as a whole and to ...

Beyond the Hubs

While jny: New Orleans, jny: Chicago, jny: Kansas City and jny: New York City were the incubators of modern jazz, they were by no means the only locations with an appetite for live music. Jazz artists whose point of origin could not sustain multiple venues ventured to locations near and far ...

Marco Bardoscia

Read "Marco Bardoscia" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Johann Sebastian Bach, Glenn Gould, Goldberg Variations (Sony Classical, 1981).
La musica di Bach è per me di grande ispirazione e in particolare questa opera monumentale interpretata da Gould. A volte mi capita di ascoltarne degli estratti prima dei concerti.

2. Miles Davis, Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet (Prestige,1958).

Sonny Clark Trio: The 1960 Sessions with George Duvivier and Max Roach

For long a time, Monk, along with Bud Powell, has been ...
