2017: The Year in Jazz

Read "2017: The Year in Jazz" reviewed by Ken Franckling

A year of achievements, challenges to gender inequality, scandal and losses

The year 2017 was quite something for the jazz world. Incidents or discussions of misogyny and sexual misconduct bubbled up even before the #MeToo phenomenon developed. Beyond that, woman musicians made significant contributions to the genre. International Jazz Day brought its biggest stage ...

Charles Lloyd: Un viaggio che parte da lontano

Read "Charles Lloyd: Un viaggio che parte da lontano" reviewed by Roberto Ottaviano

L'incontro con Charles Lloyd è stato per me il coronamento di un desiderio coltivato a lungo. Collezionare i suoi dischi, osservare la sua figura attraverso i reportage fotografici, leggerne le storie e cercare di ricostruire attraverso una serie di particolari legati alla sua musica, ai suoi gruppi, la filosofia di quest'uomo, mi ha aiutato a vivere ...

Charles Lloyd: The Winds Of Grace

Read "Charles Lloyd: The Winds Of Grace" reviewed by Ian Patterson

At seventy nine years young Charles Lloyd is showing no signs of slowing down. The summer months see the Memphis saxophonist/flautist on the North American and European festival circuits with his quartet of Gerald Clayton, Reuben Rogers and Eric Harland, followed by dates with The Marvels, Lloyd's most recent group, featuring Bill Frisell, Greg Leisz, Rogers ...

Clark Sommers Lens: By A Thread

Read "By A Thread" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

He expands the ensemble to a quintet for By A Thread. Tenorist (mostly, he also adds his bass clarinet to the sound) Geof Bradfield is back, in what ...

Gerald Clayton Trio
Nighttown
Cleveland, Ohio
May 16, 2017

Much like the politics of today, everything seems to come in extremes. So much of what passes for modern jazz today veers too far to the left, often opting for the esoteric and anarchism merely for the sake of being different. As ...

Walter Smith III: Jazz Explorer

Read "Walter Smith III: Jazz Explorer" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Walter Smith stands straight when he raises his tenor sax to his mouth to embark on a solo, or play enthralling, serpentine, contrapuntal lines in unison with band mates like Ambrose Akinmusire. [Check out “Confessions To My Unborn Daughter" from Akinmusire's When the Heart Emerges Glistening.] It's a muscular sound that emerged from his horn. Authoritative. ...

Kurt Elling: The Beautiful Day

Read "The Beautiful Day" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Forget the standard old tidings of good cheer, the same old set of swinging Christmas standards, and the sugary holiday treats that lack vitality and real sustenance. Kurt Elling certainly paid little mind to them when he was putting together this gem of a program. Instead of taking the road more traveled when it comes to ...
