Read "Recent Developments" reviewed by John Sharpe

How do you pass the tedium of a long haul flight? Catch up on sleep, or take in those films you meant to watch but never got round to viewing?

Harris Eisenstadt: On Parade In Parede

Read "On Parade In Parede" reviewed by John Sharpe

In Italian writer Antonio Tabucchi's acclaimed 1994 novel Pereira Maintains, a critical turning point comes during the central character's stay in the spa town of Parede in Portugal. It's not too much of an exaggeration to suggest a similar advance for drummer Harris Eisenstadt's Canada Day in a live date from the same locale. Usually a ...

Angelica Sanchez: Float The Edge

Read "Float The Edge" reviewed by John Sharpe

Pianist Angelica Sanchez has become an in demand side person since her move to NYC from Arizona in 1995, performing with Wadada Leo Smith, Tony Malaby, Kevin Norton, Harris Eisenstadt, and Susie Ibarra, among many others. But her own leadership discography remains slighter than might be expected. Surprisingly Float The Edge represents her first entry as ...

Convergence Quartet: Owl Jacket

Read "Owl Jacket" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Il sodalizio del Convergence Quartet, benchè saltuario, rimane vitale e convincente, come dimostra questo Owl Jacket, che offre un repertorio vario e ben strutturato, arrivando a toccare le corde di un lirismo accorato, come ad esempio nell'iniziale “Dogbe Na Wo Lo," vicina a certe cose del Don Cherry “folklorico."

Una melodia curiosamente affine ...

Harris Eisenstadt: Canada Day IV

Read "Canada Day IV" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Giunto al quarto capitolo della serie, il quintetto del batterista /compositore Harris Eisenstadt denominato Canada Day si conferma formazione di assoluto valore, forte di un sound personale e ben definito, dotato di grande pulizia e precisione, dalla chiara progettualità. Ci tornano alla memoria certi combo degli anni cinquanta orbitanti nella galassia del cosiddetto “Cool Jazz," da ...
