Noah Preminger Group: Zigsaw: Music Of Steve Lampert

Read "Zigsaw: Music Of Steve Lampert" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

With Zigsaw: The Music of Steve Lampert, saxophonist Noah Preminger presents his most ambitious album to date. Trumpeter-composer Lampert writes cerebral, avant-garde compositions. Preminger, rather than diving into a collection of Lampert tunes, takes on a single forty-nine minute magnum opus piece that zigzags back and forth between structure and openness, with an all-star septet that ...

Noah Preminger Rob Garcia Dead Composers Club: Chopin Project

Read "Chopin Project" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Quartetto a doppia firma, questo “club dei compositori morti," con Noah Preminger che ribadisce la sua predilezione per l'organico a quattro, ma agisce qui con una chitarra al posto della tromba (Jason Palmer), confermando peraltro al contrabbasso Kim Cass. Del resto il gruppo, come detto, non è solo suo, con Rob Garcia che—a voler completare il ...

Jason Palmer: Rhyme And Reason

Read "Rhyme And Reason" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You may wish you had paid more attention in your high school chemistry class, because listening to Rhyme And Reason by trumpeter Jason Palmer calls to mind the description of the nucleus of an atom. Spinning and spinning, various protons and neutrons are both attracted and held off by each other. Same can be said of ...

Mariel Austin: Runner in the Rain

Read "Runner in the Rain" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Young trombonist / vocalist Mariel Austin, who quadruples as composer / arranger on her debut album, Runner in the Rain, writes music that is hard to pigeonhole, at least as it relates to jazz. Some of her compositions are thematic, some experimental, some have classical overtones, some even swing on occasion, and most are technically demanding. ...

Read "Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Despite (or in defiant response to) the difficulties of the streaming age, 2018 has seen another musical bumper crop--especially for those of us who particularly love the sound of the piano. There were enough top-notch offerings to make a list at least twice as long, but these have been the most frequent and satisfying staples in ...

Mariel Austin: Runner in the Rain

Read "Runner in the Rain" reviewed by Troy Dostert

In case anyone is wondering whether big-band jazz continues to hold appeal for younger musicians, witness this debut five-track album from trombonist Mariel Austin. Despite (or perhaps because of) her youth, Austin possesses an ambitious and expansive vision. And on Runner in the Rain, she marshals a skilled ensemble, many of whom are friends from the ...

Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2018

Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Every little bit of the year 2018 will soon take form as memory--first recent, then distant--but the fine music gifted to us in those twelve months will be forever present, living on in ears, hearts and minds. I had the pleasure of hearing north of 400 albums this past year, and I had the privilege of ...
