Franco Ambrosetti Quintet: Long Waves

Read "Long Waves" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Veteran Swiss jazz trumpeter/flugelhornist/composer Franco Ambrosetti leads what amounts to a blowing session: mostly his originals, plus a couple of standards. But what a band it is. In bebop's heyday the group likely would have been billed as “All Stars." Guitarist John Scofield, pianist Uri Caine, bassist Scott Colley and drummer Jack DeJohnette have an illustrious ...

Franco Ambrosetti: Long Waves

Read "Long Waves" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trumpeter Franco Ambrosetti is a master of both glow and go aesthetics.

Sylvie Courvoisier and Mark Feldman: Time Gone Out

Read "Time Gone Out" reviewed by Troy Dostert

In a partnership that spans decades, pianist Sylvie Courvoisier and violinist Mark Feldman have forged a musical language that essentially obliterates the idiomatic distinctions between classical composition and improvised jazz. Both are unquestioned virtuosos, with the technical ability to do virtually anything on their respective instruments, and this is critical to their ability to create music ...

Harold Danko: His Own Sound, His Own Time

Read "Harold Danko: His Own Sound, His Own Time" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The famous sculptor, Henry Moore, hit the nail on the head when he said: “there's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it." This statement certainly rings true in the case of pianist and composer, Harold Danko. Even though he has retired from a long and distinguished career ...
