This gig opened up the 2014 season of Late Music concerts, a series that's dedicated to newer developments in modern composition, at least when viewed in the context of centuries-old classical tradition. This two-part evening combined the works of Gavin ...

London Jazz Festival
London, England
November, 9-18, 2012
Now in its 20th year, the London Jazz Festival is a vast, all-encompassing affair. One of the great cities of the world, London's history saw it swallow village upon village and hamlet after hamlet and this can make it all seem dispersed and disconnected. It's an ...

The Road To Ruin


2005 (1970)

The posthumous release of guitarist/vocalist/songwriter John Martyn's Heaven And Earth (Hole In The Rain, 2011)--the basic tracks extensively overdubbed, though not edited, by producers Garry Pollitt and Jim Tullio following Martyn's death in 2009--is welcome. Compositionally, it is not ...

Ray Warleigh: Rue Victor Massé

Read "Rue Victor Massé" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

È una storia che merita di essere raccontata quella del settantenne Ray Warleigh, uomo-ovunque della meglio musica d'oltre Manica che, in oltre quarant'anni di carriera, ha pubblicato due soli dischi a proprio nome: il primo nel '68 (intitolato con scarsa vena immaginifica Ray Warleigh's First Album), il secondo solo oggi grazie alla benemerita PSI Records dell'amico Evan Parker. Uomo-ovunque, si ...


Ray Warleigh: Rue Victor Masse

Read "Rue Victor Masse" reviewed by John Eyles

Remarkably, this is saxophonist Ray Warleigh's second solo album; his first--ingeniously entitled Ray Warleigh's First Album (Philips, 1968)--was produced by none other than Scott Walker. In the intervening years, Warleigh has been an active session player, appearing on albums as diverse as Nick Drake's Bryter Layter (Island, 1970), Soft Machine's Bundles (Harvest, 1975) and The Dedication ...
