Anouar Brahem: Blue Maqams

Read "Blue Maqams" reviewed by John Kelman

Following an unusually long, five-year gap between 2009's low register-driven The Astounding Eyes of Rita and 2014's particularly ambitious orchestral collaboration, Souvenance, Tunisian oudist Anouar Brahem returns with Blue Maqams, another game-changing release on ECM Records. Change--or, in some cases, natural evolution--has never been hard to find on Brahem's previous nine albums for the label, the ...

Read "Blue Maqams" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Fin dal suo disco d'esordio (Barzakh del 1991, pubblicato, come tutti i successivi lavori, dalla ECM e preceduto solo da alcune cassette autoprodotte) il compositore e suonatore di oud tunisino Anouar Brahem è stato tra i principali esponenti di una musica a cavallo tra Medio Oriente e Occidente, cercando una fusione tra musica araba, improvvisazione jazzistica ...

Any musiclover who enjoys the sensation of immersion in a maelstrom of sound will no doubt relish Mikrojazz, especially those familiar with the work of guitarist Dave Fiuczynski.

Read "Piotr Turkiewicz: Putting Wroclaw On The Jazz Map" reviewed by Ian Patterson

At just thirty seven years of age it's hard to believe that Piotr Turkiewicz has been pulling the strings of Jazztopad for almost a decade already. The festival, staged each November in the Polish city of Wroclaw, was already a few years old when Turkiewicz became Artistic Director in 2008, but under the canny stewardship of ...

Philipp Gerschlauer/David Fiuczynski: Mikrojazz!: Neue Expressionistische Musik

Read "Mikrojazz!: Neue Expressionistische Musik" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

If you've followed guitarist David Fiuczynski's work in recent years, then you should already know that he's continually intensifying his search for what exists in the spaces between the spaces.

Martin Archer: Story Tellers

Read "Story Tellers" reviewed by Duncan Heining

We used to call records like this 'concept albums.' The whole idea soon became a term of derision thanks to Rick Wakeman and others. Nevertheless, let's stick with it for a moment. Martin Archer's Story Tellers is constructed as a series of interlocking vignettes, linked both by certain recurring themes, narrative threads and the attribution of ...
