I would never presume to know enough about music to compare two of the most brilliant pianists in jazz today: Matt Mitchell and Satoko Fujii. Feel free to go ahead and do that yourself. All I'll say is that they are both amazing and worthy of all the recognition that comes their way. Each has a ...

Gabriel Ferrandini: Volúpias

Read "Volúpias" reviewed by Don Phipps

Portuguese American drummer Gabriel Ferrandini's album Volúpias offers fascinating, impressionistic sound-portraits of the streets and avenues of Lisbon. Yet, unlike what one might expect from an ode to the urban experience, Ferrandini's portraits are often sedate and abstract, more a stroll than a view from a passing vehicle window.

These impressions are given form ...

Albert Beger, Gianni Lenoci, Gabriel Ferrandini & More

Read "Albert Beger, Gianni Lenoci, Gabriel Ferrandini & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

It would be easy to riff on the title of bassist André Carvalho's new recording, The Garden of Earthly Delights, and come up with a very apt theme for this episode, something like Three Hours of Amazing Musical Colours, or The Crayola Effect. From Carvalho's release, based on Hieronymous Bosch's painting to the vibrant pastels of ...

Jon Irabagon/ Hernani Faustino/ Gabriel Ferrandini: Absolut Zero

Read "Absolut Zero" reviewed by John Sharpe

If you are as extraordinarily talented as saxophonist Jon Irabagon, probably best known from his tenure in the gloriously irreverent Mostly Other People Do The Killing, then you might occasionally need to set yourself challenges. He's done it before, on Foxy (Hot Cup, 2010), where he undertakes a relentless examination of a theme from every conceivable ...

Rodrigo Amado: Motion Trio

Read "Motion Trio" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Here, cellist Miguel Mira and drummer Gabriel Ferrandini replace eminent improvisers, bassist Kent Kessler and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love.
