Ola Kvernberg Trio: Northern Tapes

Read "Ola Kvernberg Trio: Northern Tapes" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been three years since Ola Kvernberg released the ambitious Liarbird (Jazzland, 2011), a studio document of his 2010 Molde International Jazz Festival commission where guest Joshua Redman was recruited for the live performance, but where, far more than a ringer for Kvernberg, Redman was clearly awestruck by this virtuosic young violinist/composer. It's not that Kvernberg ...

WorldService Project: Articulate Arsonists

Read "WorldService Project: Articulate Arsonists" reviewed by John Kelman

It's a very different time to be a musician than it was even 20 years ago, when major record labels still existed, providing tour support and money to make recordings.
