Yoni Kretzmer 2 Bass Quartet: Book II

Read "Book II" reviewed by John Sharpe

One of the major innovations of the 1960s New Thing was to liberate the so called rhythm section from time keeping duties. The role of the bass in particular was transformed, allowing it leeway to sit alongside the front line. But there was still sometimes a need to impart momentum. One solution was to double up, ...

Tatsuya Nakatani: Essences and Abiogenesis

Read "Tatsuya Nakatani: Essences and Abiogenesis" reviewed by Clifford Allen
