Tom Abbs & Frequency Response: Hawthorne

Read "Hawthorne" reviewed by Don Phipps

On his album Hawthorne, Brooklyn-based Tom Abbs showcases his mastery of several instruments and writing styles. Combining free, hard bop, world, and blues styles, Abbs's compositions juxtapose explosive exposés of new music with idioms that hearken back to ancient times.

Abbs is joined by Jean Cook and Jenna Barvitski on violin, Brian Settles on ...

Kang Tae Hwan: Live At Cafe Amores

Read "Live At Cafe Amores" reviewed by John Sharpe

South Korean reedman Kang Tae Hwan is one of the foremost exponents of solo saxophone in the Far East. While he has featured in groups, notably Ton Klami who can be heard on Prophecy Of Nue (NoBusiness, 2017), his conception is so singular that it may be best appreciated in undiluted form. Which makes Live At ...

Bobo Stenson: Contra la indecision

Read "Contra la indecision" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Con Bobo Stenson siamo di fronte a uno dei volti caratteristici scaturiti dalla scena musicale del Nord Europa: quello segnato dalla raffinatezza timbrica, dallo scandaglio armonico, dalla ricerca melodica ricca di sfumature e digressioni che per certi versi fa riferimento a Bill Evans, ma ne anestetizza la forza dinamica, la nettezza tagliente, i bagliori di fulmine. ...

Anton Hunter: Article XI

Read "Article XI" reviewed by Ian Patterson

If Frank Zappa had been co-musical director of Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra then the results might have sounded something like Article XI. Think Carla Bley's charts, Haden's missionary passion and Zappa's sudden shifts in direction and you may begin to get an idea of the terrain Anton Hunter's eleven-piece band explore on this live performance--the ...

Edoardo Marraffa, Gabriele Di Giulio, Nicola Guazzaloca, Luca Bernard, Andrea Grillini: Tellnolies

Read "Tellnolies" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Registrata a fine marzo del 2016 a Bologna, nel teatro San Leonardo (sede del celebre festival Angelica), questa ultima uscita dell'etichetta Fonterossa vede in scena un quintetto che è classico solo nella formazione (peraltro “inquinata" dalla presenza costante del sopranino come secondo fiato) e che, impegnata su composizioni di Nicola Guazzaloca, dà vita a una musica ...

Roscoe Mitchell / Matthew Shipp: Accelerated Projection

Read "Accelerated Projection" reviewed by John Sharpe

Here's one from the vaults that still retains currency. This duo recital captures pianist Matthew Shipp and reedman Roscoe Mitchell in concert at the 2005 Sant'Anna Arresi festival in Sardinia. Shipp has enjoyed a lengthy association with the veteran Art Ensemble of Chicago founder, documented on This Dance For Steve McCall (Black Saint, 1992) and Nine ...

Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle

Read "Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle" reviewed by Marco Colonna

Scrivere di Alberto Pinton è una delle occasioni ghiotte che speravo di avere collaborando occasionalmente con la divulgazione “giornalistica" del jazz. Sapendo bene di non essere un tecnico della scrittura, ma un semplice veneratore del linguaggio, mi avvicino all'impresa con le cuffie, chiudendo il mondo fuori per la durata di un disco.

Questa ...

Roscoe Mitchell: Accelerated Projection

Read "Accelerated Projection" reviewed by Don Phipps

The level of musicianship exhibited on the Roscoe Mitchell-Matthew Shipp collaboration Accelerated Projection is amazing to behold. Mitchell of course co-founded the influential Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), which gave birth to many great “free jazz" musicians. He also co-founded the Art Ensemble of Chicago, a group that has achieved legendary status among ...
