Hal Galper Quartet: Cubist

Read "Cubist" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Count pianist Hal Galper as another veteran rising like the brightest of stars into a compelling late career zenith. An alumni of saxophone great Phil Woods' 1980s group, Galper found his inspiration of late with an exploration of the Rubato Style of playing, with its flexible approach to tempo and the disassembling of melodies and putting ...

Morten Haugshøj Group: The Street Doctor

Read "The Street Doctor" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Even though Danish guitarist Morten Haugshøj has been a familiar presence on the jazz scene in Aarhus for a long time, his album The Street Doctor feels like a new a beginning.

Miles Donahue: The Bug

Read "The Bug" reviewed by Jack Bowers

People who have an aversion to bugs (do you know any?) may hesitate to purchase (or even review) an album whose title epitomizes the very thing they abhor. But even though multi-instrumentalist Miles Donahue's new album does nod to that often-despised creature and even includes a song by that name, there is more to it than ...

Chris McCarthy: Sonder

Read "Sonder" reviewed by Troy Dostert

You won't find too many jazz musicians eager to cover post-punk stalwarts Deerhoof on their debut record, as keyboardist Chris McCarthy does on Sonder.

Pianist/composer Eli Wallace and drummer Rob Pumpelly make up the duo Dialectical Imagination and describe their blend of free improvisation and chamber music as “ecstatic ...
