Uri Gurvich: Kinship

Read "Kinship" reviewed by Luca Casarotti

Nel cursus discografico di Uri Gurvich c'è qualcosa di prezioso come un progetto non estemporaneo, ma protratto sul lungo periodo. È questa ricerca di coerenza che ha portato il sassofonista israeliano ha registrare i suoi dischi insieme a un quartetto rimasto immutato negli anni: questo Kinship, uscito per Jazz Family, fa seguito ai due precedenti lavori ...

Club d'Elf: Live at Club Helsinki

Read "Live at Club Helsinki" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Club d'Elf and their sprawling live records present a unique challenge to folks who write about them. This double Live at Club Helsinki set reveals every modern style and multiple Moroccan rhythms (except for opera and bluegrass--maybe). But often we want so much to relate or explain these sounds, and there's so much going on in ...

Club d'Elf: Live at Club Helsinki

Read "Live at Club Helsinki" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Il gruppo mutabile di elfi che si raccoglie abitualmente attorno al bassista Mike Rivard ha colpito di nuovo. Questa volta però il gruppo Club D'Elf non è stato registrato nell'abituale Lizard Lounge di Cambridge, nella immediata periferia di Boston, che ospita praticamente ogni settimana (o giù di lì) i loro lunghi concerti. Per questa importante occasione ...

Club d'Elf: Live at Club Helsinki

Read "Live at Club Helsinki" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The Boston-based collective Club d'Elf seems to attract genre labels like nobody's business. Moroccan-dosed dub-jazz, trance, psychedelia, free jazz, electronica, hip hop, avant-garde, jam band, rock...what other styles have you got? At one point or another any of these labels could apply, but the distinctions are blurred in the joyous sonic stew. The band has hosted ...

Mike Rivard: Entranced By The Music

Alon Nechustan: Venture Bound

Read "Venture Bound" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Pianist Alon Nechustan is full of surprises. His work with Talat-- The Growl (Tzadik, 2007)--placed him in the alt klezmer jazz category, but he refused to stay put in that area. Nechustan changed gears with Words Beyond (Buckyball Records, 2011), casting aside his allegiance to Hebraic-tinged melodies so he could focus on the modern language of ...

Club d'Elf: Electric Moroccoland / So Below

Read "Electric Moroccoland / So Below" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Even in our far-reaching and cluttered modern musical culture, it seems safe to suggest that there is no other band quite like Club d'Elf, a floating riverboat gamble with a fluid cast of contributors--keyboardist John Medeski, guitarists Reeves Gabrels and Duke Levin, Mat Maneri on electric viola, turntablist Mister Rourke, and many others among them--steered by ...
