John Kelman's Best Releases of 2018

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by John Kelman

Once again, the chronic health problem that has reduced my writing pace to a crawl continues without any respite. My best of the year lists have traditionally been predicated upon having reviewed the releases chosen, but with only a relative handful of reviews to choose from this year (and with those choices, more than ever now, ...

Read "Doug Collette's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Doug Collette

It wasn't hard in the least to compile a 'Best of...' list for 2018. The titles were self-evident as they rolled out, with almost clockwork regularity, over the course of the twelve months, ultimately comprising what I kept going back to most often during the year, enjoying each one more (and in a slightly different way) ...

Ben Wendel: The Seasons

Read "The Seasons" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Stepping out as he occasionally does from the genre-mashing ensemble Kneebody, Grammy-nominated saxophonist / bassoonist Ben Wendel takes up the challenge of interpreting the seasons as they exist in this time of climate upheaval and delivers the dynamic, visceral The Seasons.

In 2015, inspired by Tchaikovsky's “The Seasons," Wendel set about writing and performing ...

Gilad Hekselman: Ask For Chaos

Read "Ask For Chaos" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Be careful what you ask for if chaos is on the wish list. Israeli-born guitarist Gilad Hekselman invited disorder on this, his sixth outing, by employing two distinct backing bands. And there is fun to be had in spotting discrepancies between the combos. Representing the more avant elements are Zuperoctave, whilst a touch of trad comes ...

Skydive Trio: Sun Sparkle

Read "Sun Sparkle" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

There are parts of Norway where the sun hardly sets for months on end. It stays bright all night and dawn is never dark. The essence of this strange polar light finds its way into Sun Sparkle, the second album from Norwegian act Skydive Trio. Its predecessor, Sun Moee, also referenced our great burning star, which ...
