Ellery Eskelin / Gerry Hemingway: Inbetween Spaces

Read "Inbetween Spaces" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The formidable duo of drummer Gerry Hemingway and tenor saxophonist Ellery Eskelin leans heavily on the artistic spectrum by enacting lucid imagery when navigating through dimly lit corridors and wide-open spaces. The stereo separation enhances the capacious aspects of this impressive outing.

The duo leaves a bit of room in-between, while eliciting responses from ...

Terrence McManus - Gerry Hemingway: Below the Surface of

Read "Below the Surface of" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Sentiremo ancora parlare di Terrence McManus. E non soltanto per quel nome che pare preso in prestito da un romanzo di Roberto Bolaño o Thomas Pynchon. C'è la netta sensazione, ascoltando Below the Surface of, di essersi imbattuti in un improvvisatore che ha numeri e talento, idee in abbondanza e coraggio da vendere. Newyorkese di Brooklyn (finalmente un ...

Qui infatti il protagonista assoluto è il komungo, strumento della tradizione coreana (in pratica una cetra a tavola con ponticelli mobili che si suona stimolando le sei corde con un bastoncino di legno arrotondato) che la virtuosa Jin Hi Kim, (studi e ...

John Butcher / Gerry Hemingway: Buffalo Pearl

Read "Buffalo Pearl" reviewed by John Eyles

John Butcher's Resonant Spaces (Confront, 2008) featured the saxophonist's use of controlled feedback and recordings in large resonant spaces, trends in his recent work that emphasize the exploratory side of his playing.



This was exemplified on albums such as Cavern With Nightlife (Weight of Wax, 2004), and Geometry of Sentiment (Emanem, 2007). ...

John Butcher / Gerry Hemingway: Buffalo Pearl

Read "Buffalo Pearl" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There are some combinations in jazz that are simply magic, including the duos of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli; Stan Getz and Kenny Barron; and Peter Brotzmann and Han Bennink. Add to that list the teaming of John Butcher and Gerry Hemingway. Though not a new pairing--the saxophonist and drummer became acquainted in 1993 and released ...
