Mal Waldron: Free At Last

Read "Free At Last" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Idrees Sulieman Quartet feat. Oscar Dennard: The 4 American Jazz Men in Tangier

Read "The 4 American Jazz Men in Tangier" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

La pubblicazione in doppio album di queste sedute del 1959 del quartetto di Idrees Sulieman rivestono importanza in primo luogo per ascoltare il talento assoluto del pianista Oscar Dennard. Colpevolmente dimenticato, Dennard si rivela uno strumentista di primissimo piano, una voce fuori dal coro tra i pianisti attivi negli anni 50. Un po' strangolato nell'orchestra ...

Thelonious Monk: Genius of Modern Music, Volume 1 – Blue Note 1510

Read "Thelonious Monk: Genius of Modern Music, Volume 1 – Blue Note 1510" reviewed by Marc Davis

There's bebop, there's hard bop--and then there's Thelonious Monk. It's not hard to imagine where the bebop pioneers found their new sound in the late 1940s, after World War II. It emerged from the big bands, which were dying. It was a natural progression. Hard-charging, uber-fast soloists pushed the limits of speed and rhythm, ...

Brian Lynch: Unsung Heroes

Read "Unsung Heroes" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Trumpeter extraordinaire Brian Lynch is always willing, quite rightly, to acknowledge the masters who have gone before him. Some of the finest jazz trumpeters never made it big, while others no longer sit as securely in the minds of jazz fans as they once did. Nevertheless, they are all part, as Lynch writes, of “the jazz ...

Brian Lynch: Unsung Heroes

Read "Unsung Heroes" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trumpet tribute albums are a tricky business. There are those in jazz, like Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong, who have been endlessly saluted, creating a culture of mass appeal and celebration that's not always a good thing. On the surface, projects that praise these jazz heroes bring well-deserved exposure to their music and might, but they ...
