As a jazz enthusiast strolling along the beautiful waterfront of Rotterdam, encountering the name Van Gelder almost seems too good to be true. Even though in this case, the name is found on a truck and refers to a corporation that sells ...

Nicola Conte: Let Your Light Shine On

Read "Let Your Light Shine On" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

One of the best parts of Let Your Light Shine On is how it plucks out musical threads from throughout the galaxy (more on that later) and knits them together into truly groovy, soulful cloth. But music is only one of many real good things this set has going on.

Light is the first ...

Eriksson Kaner: Changed Beings

Read "Changed Beings" reviewed by Chris May

This download-only single is the calling card of London-based pianist / composer Eriksson Kaner--and it is a most welcome one. The track is Kaner's first step towards building a profile on the city's jazz scene after five years' study at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Kaner's older brother, trumpeter Axel Kaner-Lidstrom, has already ...

Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Read "Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology" reviewed by Duncan Heining

My intention here is to offer a detailed but inevitably incomplete chronology of poetry and jazz. The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music. My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and ...

Still today, over half a century later, free-jazz is sometimes dismissed out of hand as just so much noise, or worse, finds itself simply airbrushed from the ...
