Chris Pitsiokos: Silver Bullet in the Autumn of Your Years

Read "Silver Bullet in the Autumn of Your Years" reviewed by Don Phipps

Adventurous, hair-raising, mind-bending, dense, fibrous, layered, hallucinogenic, twisted. These are the words that come to mind when listening to the excellent but challenging music on Chris Pitsiokos's album Silver Bullet in the Autumn of Your Years. Pitsiokos' compositions often sound like a musical transcription of the trippiest parts of William Burrough's “Naked Lunch." The result? An ...

But you wouldn't want any, as it is these musical g-forces that make drummer Marc Edwards and guitarist Mick Barr's album an incredible listening experience.

David S. Ware/Matthew Shipp: Live in Sant’Anna Arresi, 2004

Read "Live in Sant’Anna Arresi, 2004" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Describing David S. Ware as a maverick would be a gimmicky shortcut around the depth of the late saxophonist's vision. Outside of John Coltrane we have not seen a Ware contemporary with more depth of spirituality, presented in such a visceral way. Similarly, Matthew Shipp employs a type of unimaginable creative mysticism that transcends technique and ...

Getting To Know Ras Moshe

Read "Getting To Know Ras Moshe" reviewed by Dom Minasi

Ras Moshe is not a name most people are familiar with. If you listen to straight ahead jazz you probably wouldn't know Ras. Now if you go to some of the 'downtown' performances in New York City and Brooklyn you probably have seen him play. I heard him ten years ago playing Tenor Sax at the ...

Matthew Shipp: Shipp Shifts

Read "Matthew Shipp: Shipp Shifts" reviewed by Chris Rich

Pianist Matthew Shipp's artistic collaboration community is a counterpart to his business community. It is its own ecosystem of multidisciplinary work, scholarly conversations and mentorship.

The Trio

The trio is Shipp's main vehicle. It is, by turns, his midnight train, his slow boat to China and a way of flying home. It takes a ...

Weasel Walter / Mary Halvorson / Peter Evans

Electric Fruit

Thirsty Ear

2011

Percussionist and improviser Weasel Walter often uses the term “face rip" to describe a particularly intense musical experience. In improvised music, you often don't get a “blood and guts" approach; free jazz, in many instances, has been ...

David S. Ware: Planetary Musician

Read "David S. Ware: Planetary Musician" reviewed by Lyn Horton

On Sunday, June 27th, 2010, about a half-hour after its scheduled 9:30 pm appearance on the Abrons Art Center main performance stage in New York City, the David S. Ware Trio was setting up. The audience for this night of Vision Festival XV was its usual wandering and low-hum conversational self. William Parker stood by his ...

Tatsuya Nakatani: Essences and Abiogenesis

Read "Tatsuya Nakatani: Essences and Abiogenesis" reviewed by Clifford Allen

What is improvised music without visuality? While the music of improvising composers can be felt and picked apart aurally, the physical act of making music in an un- preconceived setting is something rather extraordinary and easily lost through the audible distance of a recording. It's not just the dynamic, theatrical high jinks of a player like ...

Marc Edwards / Weasel Walter Group: Blood Of The Earth

Read "Blood Of The Earth" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Double drummer-led free jazz sessions come with a price, and both aural and contemplative muscles need to be flexed. With Blood Of The Earth, from drummers Marc Edwards and Weasel Walter, the challenges for immersion in a sonic concentration of spontaneity and stamina.

But this is not your father's retread of John Coltrane's Ascension (Impulse!, 1965). ...
