Forget Old Europe: 15 European Jazz Musicians You Need To Know About

Read "Forget Old Europe: 15 European Jazz Musicians You Need To Know About" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Since the first half of the 20th century, the Old Continent has played a pivotal role both in welcoming and supporting jazz artists from the United States. Over the following decades it has expressed generations of passionate musicians with increasingly original languages and ever greater improvisatory skills.

In the 21st century there are countless ...

Linus + Skarbø / Leroux: Linus + Skarbø / Leroux

Read "Linus + Skarbø / Leroux" reviewed by Dave Wayne

In the seven years since its inception, El Negocito Records, based in Ghent, Belgium, has established itself as one of the most adventurous and far-ranging independent labels on the European new music scene. The phrase “new music" is operative here because the label concentrates on improvisation in all of its musical guises. There are modern jazz ...

Ruben Machtelinckx & Linus: Belgian Experimental Music, Strings Attached

Read "Ruben Machtelinckx & Linus: Belgian Experimental Music, Strings Attached" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Belgian guitarist/composer Ruben Machtelinckx has built an impressive catalog of recordings as a leader since graduating from the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp in 2010. He tends to work in groups with no drummer, a chamber jazz approach that suits his lyrical, sometimes minimalist compositions well. His guitar style is tasteful and devoid of flashy pyrotechnics: even ...

Read "This Love" reviewed by John Sharpe

Slovenian pianist Kaja Draksler and Portuguese trumpeter Susana Santos Silva came together at Lisbon's Culturgest in March 2015 to create This Love.

Silent Songs: Introducing Ruben Machtelinckx

Read "Silent Songs: Introducing Ruben Machtelinckx" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The easiest way to impress as a musician is to play loud and fast, but it is not necessarily the most emotionally engaging way of playing music. Instead, some of the best music creates a quiet room that it is possible to inhabit for the listener and such a space has become necessary in a time ...

Lama + Joachim Badenhorst: The Elephant's Journey

Read "The Elephant's Journey" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Il trio è di quelli consolidati da un'assidua frequentazione, da numerosi concerti in giro per l'Europa, da due splendidi album -Oneiros, il debutto, il successivo Lamacal, con ospite Chris Speed-per Clean Feed. Sempre per l'etichetta portoghese di Pedro Costa, Lama -questo il nome del trio -incide il terzo lavoro con il quotato clarinettista belga Joachim Badenhorst. ...

Lama + Joachim Badenhorst: The Elephant's Journey

Read "The Elephant's Journey" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The trio Lama, a regular working ensemble with Portuguese musicians, trumpeter Susana Santos Silva and double bassist Gonçalo Almeida, plus Canadian drummer Greg Smith should seriously consider becoming a quartet, with the permanent inclusion of Belgian clarinetist Joachim Badenhorst. The trio's music just feels more complete with their release The Elephant's Journey.

Lama's first disc ...

Equilibrium: Liquid Light

Read "Liquid Light" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This European trio's third release is abetted by Songlines Recordings' pristine audio processes, which is a vital aspect since many of these tracks are quietly penetrating in scope and designed with ethereal atmospherics. The artists' specialty may lie within an artsy, avant-garde schema via a channel of electro-acoustic tone poems, enamored by Sissel Vera Pettersen's luminous ...

Joachim Badenhorst: Forest // Mori

Read "Forest // Mori" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Clarinetist Joachim Badenhorst probably doesn't know who Ray Johnson is, or was. He died 20 years ago. Johnson, the father of Mail Art, created a network of artists and patrons beginning in the1960s through his correspondences. He called them 'correspondances.' His mailings created a worldwide democratic system for art.

Mail Art peaked pre-internet, in ...
