Michael William Gilbert: Radio Omnibus

Read "Radio Omnibus" reviewed by Geannine Reid

Computers and technology have changed our lives in so many ways that it is hard to fathom the speed in which our lives have transformed. This rapid transformation also applies to music. Home studios and digital distribution for the modern-day artist allows more musicians per capita to get their music heard on a larger scale. What ...

Michael William Gilbert: Radio Omnibus

Read "Radio Omnibus" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Much electronic music seems to fall into three distinct categories: 1) droning angst, dredged from the primordial soup, given a beat to get tribal to; 2) wash upon wave upon wash of textured android spirituality; 3) hugely unlistenable, period. But Michael William Gilbert's Radio Omnibus has a humor to it, and where humor is, lies a ...

John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by John Kelman

For those who may have noticed, there have been no best of lists coming from yours truly since 2014; sadly, the chronic health problem that has reduced my previous writing pace to a crawl continues without much respite.

Oregon: Lantern

Read "Lantern" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Pochi gruppi, soprattutto nel mondo del jazz, possono vantare una tenuta così lunga come quella degli Oregon, che si sta ormai avvicinando al mezzo secolo di vita (il quartetto è stato fondato nel 1970). Lantern è il trentesimo titolo della loro discografia (contando anche un paio di antologie), pubblicato come i quattro precedenti dalla etichetta italiana ...

Oregon: Lantern

Read "Lantern" reviewed by John Kelman

Despite having to replace percussionists a couple of times since its inception in 1970, Oregon's otherwise consistent lineup of reed/woodwind multi-instrumentalist Paul McCandless, guitarist/pianist/primary composer Ralph Towner and double bassist Glen Moore remained unchanged for forty-five years--surely some kind of record in the jazz world. And with current drummer/percussionist Mark Walker joining the group for 1997's ...

Tim Ray Trio: Windows

Read "Windows" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il pianista Tim Ray è noto soprattutto per le collaborazioni con protagonisti della musica pop (Lyle Lovett, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt) piuttosto che con jazzmen (Gary Burton, Esperanza Spalding, Phil Woods, Dave Douglas, Brian Blade, Lewis Nash) o con organici classici come la Boston Classical Orchestra.
