Giuseppe Doronzo: Goya

Read "Goya" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Italian baritone saxophonist Giuseppe Doronzo is the type of restless artist that continually looks for new resources from which to expand on the language of his instrument. In recent years he has utilized a variety of format platforms as launching points. With the self-titled debut of the quintet Falga (Self-Produced, 2016) and the subsequent AVA Trio ...

Rich Halley 3: The Literature

Read "The Literature" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

A native of Oregon, saxophonist Rich Halley spent enough time in Chicago to absorb the ethos of the AACM and intermingle the influences of Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus, and Ornette Coleman, to name a few of his inspirations. Over his thirty-five year recording career he has worked with Michael Bisio, Bobby Bradford, Nels Cline, Vinny Golia, ...

Rich Halley 3: The Literature

Read "The Literature" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

After spending a few formative musical years in Chicago--where the winds blow the blues around--saxophonist Rich Halley made his way back to Portland, Oregon.

Vinny Golia Sextet: Trajectory

Read "Trajectory" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Walking in the canyons of a big city like New York or in the old-growth forests of California Redwoods, it is almost impossible to acquire perspective. One cannot stand back far enough to take in the enormity of the scene. It is best to embrace the hugeness and enjoy the experience. The same can be said ...

Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle

Read "Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle" reviewed by Marco Colonna

Scrivere di Alberto Pinton è una delle occasioni ghiotte che speravo di avere collaborando occasionalmente con la divulgazione “giornalistica" del jazz. Sapendo bene di non essere un tecnico della scrittura, ma un semplice veneratore del linguaggio, mi avvicino all'impresa con le cuffie, chiudendo il mondo fuori per la durata di un disco.

Jeff Cosgrove / Scott Robinson / Ken Filiano: Hunters & Scavengers

Read "Hunters & Scavengers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In the 1980s, artist Jenny Holzer created short, pithy statements projected by LED lights in museums and onto Times Square. Her now famous “Abuse of Power Comes As No Surprise" text sums up not only the #MeToo movement and the #BlackLivesMatter cry, but also to some extent, the music industry. The vertical construction of many jazz ...

Vinny Golia Wind Quartet: Live At The Century City Playhouse – Los Angeles, 1979

Read "Live At The  Century City Playhouse – Los Angeles, 1979" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If you were born yesterday, you can be forgiven for believing the West Coast jazz scene begins with Kamasi Washington. As with most things related to jazz, New York is the focus, with slight consideration of Chicago. The rich history of Los Angeles' creative community, including the early Ornette Coleman ensembles, Dexter Gordon, Horace Tapscott, Frank ...
