Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom: Glitter Wolf

Read "Glitter Wolf" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Sestetto di gran pregio quello allestito da Allison Miller sotto la denominazione Boom Tic Boom, forte di alcuni dei migliori rappresentati delle scene creative californiana e newyorchese, tutti a loro volo titolari di importanti progetti personali. Aggiungiamo una strumentazione non così canonica—clarinetti e cornetta per i fiati, contrabbasso e violino per le corde, piano e batteria ...

Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom: Glitter Wolf

Read "Glitter Wolf" reviewed by Jennifer DeMeritt

Some jazz musicians dare you to follow them to the rarefied realm of their imagination, where you might discover paradise, or you might get lost in a forest of abstraction. Allison Miller says, “Hey, let's take a ride!" then revs the engine and takes you on a grand tour of a carnival of sounds. A masterful ...

Where Fusion and Tradition Meet

Read "Where Fusion and Tradition Meet" reviewed by Doug Collette

In the realm of contemporary jazz, drummer Denny Seiwell is a relatively new returnee after an extended stint as member of Paul McCartney's Wings, while keyboardist Robert Walter is long-time occupant of a self-created niche where he acts as bandleader when not in his charter member role in the Greyboy Allstars or collaborating with the likes ...

Grayson Capps: Scarlett Roses

Read "Scarlett Roses" reviewed by Doug Collette

It makes perfect sense for Grayson Capps' Scarlett Roses to conclude with a cut called “Moving On" (and for a lyric sheet to be included). The music on this album sounds like it comes from a place just beyond the world as most of us know it. Like the appropriately designated title song, the material itself ...

Jenny Scheinman: Here on Earth

Read "Here on Earth" reviewed by Daniele Vogrig

A volte può capitare che l'ascolto di alcuni dischi possa suggerire all'orecchio, o meglio all'animo dell'ascoltatore, una sensazione di familiarità, di intimità, come se certe canzoni non fossero state in realtà prodotte all'interno di uno studio di registrazione ma suonate al caldo tepore di un piccolo soggiorno, mentre fuori cade la neve. A distanza ...

Jenny Scheinman: Here on Earth

Read "Here on Earth" reviewed by Doug Collette

Originally commissioned as music to accompany the film Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait, but actually dating back to sources of inspiration from the artist's childhood, the music on violinist/composer Jenny Scheinman's Here On Earth stands on its own terms as an unconventional work of string music. Fifteen tracks pass in quick succession from “A Kid ...

Holly Bowling: Better Left Unsung

Read "Better Left Unsung" reviewed by Doug Collette

As wry as is the implication of its title, Holly Bowling's double album of Grateful Dead material, Better Left Unsung, is utterly absorbing. These thirteen wholly instrumental, solo piano renditions of material spanning the spectrum of the iconic San Francisco band's songbook illuminate why the songs are so memorable on their own terms as well as ...

Seth Walker: Gotta Get Back

Read "Seth Walker: Gotta Get Back" reviewed by Doug Collette

With Gotta Get Back, Seth Walker aligns himself with arguably the most authentic of Americana artists, the Wood Brothers. Both siblings contribute to this, the ninth album of the Southern-born and raised songwriter/musician, while the 'adopted' member of their brethren, Jano Rix, produced the record, adding not only his own multi-instrumental and vocal skills, but setting ...
