Todd Clouser: Todd Clouser's A Love Electric

Read "Todd Clouser's A Love Electric" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

"A Love Electric is possibility and energy," explains guitarist, composer and bandleader Todd Clouser. “I come from a rock place as a player. I still love Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and the total madness in noise, even if I'm listening to Charlie Parker, Monk, or Wayne Shorter more often these days."

“All that was once new ...

Kelly Rossum: Family

Read "Family" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

Minneapolis trumpeter Kelly Rossum's previous release, the excellent Line (612 Sides, 2007) was in some ways as abstract and linear as its title. Family, fittingly, is as comforting and warm as its predecessor was austere--but also, appropriately, slightly bittersweet and elegiac.

Partly, the difference is due to the presence of pianist Bryan Nichols. Line is ...

Kelly Rossum: Line

Read "Line" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

Those listeners who know Kelly Rossum only as the self-styled “electrumpet" virtuoso from Electropolis (Innova, 2006), by the Minneapolis group of the same name, will be surprised by Line.

In contrast to Electropolis' deep-groove, sci-fi jazz, Rossum's band here offers an entirely acoustic combination of the sounds of those marvelous, piano-less “New Thing" ...

Kelly Rossum: Renovation

Read "Renovation" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Renovation, Minneapolis-based trumpeter Kelly Rossum's second recording as a leader, opens with a Rossum original, “Cheap Cigars," coming to life on a Fender Rhodes chime, repeated like church bells, as an introduction to the leader's muted horn, a sound of yearning in front of the sharp punctuation of a shuffling rhythm. Miles Davis' sound, of the ...

Kelly Rossum: Party's Over/Begun

Read "Party's Over/Begun" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Trumpeter Kelly Rossum and the quintet open up Party's Over/Begun relaxed and loose-jointed on bass man Michael O'Brian's "Scatterlogic", a rollicking straight ahead quintet workout. Stretched (like a rubberband) trumpet lines, rhythm rolling free and easy. Sounds like the band tried and tried to record it just right, then gave up and said, "What the hell; ...
