Mike Downes: Root Structure

Read "Root Structure" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Bassist Mike Downes likes to explore what rests at the heart of an idea and what makes things tick. That's essentially the notion that waters the roots of Root Structure. It's a thought process that gives Downes grounding while also freeing him from the constraints of a more rigid conceptual frame. The three ...

The Brian Dickinson Quintet: The Rhythm Method

Read "The Rhythm Method" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Toronto-based pianist Brian Dickinson explores the “quintet with a two sax front line" on The Rhythm Method.

Read "What I Hear Now" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Jerry Granelli: What I Hear Now

Read "What I Hear Now" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The simple answer to the question that drummer Jerry Granelli poses on What I Hear Now is “horns." He hears horns over the foundation of his regular trio with saxophonist Dani Oore and bassist Simon Fisk who uses the 3 string bassetto here. The mix is three reeds, including tenor saxophonist Mike Murley, joined by a ...

Jerry Granelli: What I Hear Now

Read "What I Hear Now" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

This is what master drummer Jerry Granelli hears now: a wide variety of left-of-center music that circumvents strict harmonic corralling, thanks to the absence of guitar or piano, and makes good use of multiple horns. Of course, if you catch Granelli a few months down the road, he might hear something completely different. ...
