Guitarist Carl Michel Celebrates the music of Paul Motian with "Music in Motian" on Play On Records

Guitarist Carl Michel Celebrates the music of Paul Motian with "Music in Motian" on Play On Records

The music of drummer/composer Paul Motian is revered in certain circles of jazz, while resting in obscurity among others. The performing credits of Motian run deep and are extensive, but as a author of highly original music, he lies in the under-documented category. This will not last much longer as, in the years since his passing, ...

Michael Moss's Accidental Orchestra: Helix

Read "Helix" reviewed by Troy Dostert

A longtime contributor to the New York jazz scene whose roots go back to Sam Rivers's loft era of the 1970s, clarinetist and composer Michael Moss has typically worked in a small-group context, especially via his most well-known ensembles, Four Rivers and the New York Free Quartet. But on Helix, he's got more ambitious goals in ...

Dizzy Gillespie: Concert of the Century - Tribute to Charlie Parker

Read "Concert of the Century - Tribute to Charlie Parker" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Queste incisioni dal vivo a Montreal erano uscite in LP in quantità limitata. Dopo 30 anni, l'edizione in CD aggiunge quasi mezzora di musica e varia di poco la scaletta musicale.

Il concerto è del novembre 1980 e trova questo sestetto di veterani del bop ancora abbastanza in forma, sia anagrafica che artistica, considerando ...

Adam Shulman Sextet: Full Tilt

Read "Full Tilt" reviewed by Jack Bowers

In music, as in life, not every new voice is worth hearing. Here's one that is. Full Tilt, the fifth CD by San Francisco-born and based pianist Adam Shulman's sextet, is a throwback to those halcyon days when bop was king and giants like Diz, Bird, Miles, Max Roach, Hank Mobley, Benny Golson, Horace Silver, Wardell ...

Beyond the Hubs

While jny: New Orleans, jny: Chicago, jny: Kansas City and jny: New York City were the incubators of modern jazz, they were by no means the only locations with an appetite for live music. Jazz artists whose point of origin could not sustain multiple venues ventured to locations near and far ...

John Coltrane: Trane 90

Read "Trane 90" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Coltrane l'apprendista, il collaboratore di talento, il leader, il visionario. È davvero possibile suddividere la carriera di John Coltrane attraverso questi ruoli ben distinti? O piuttosto la sapienza coltraniana si affina contando tuttavia già su una forza di partenza tutta particolare, e straordinaria?

A parte le incisioni dei primi anni Cinquanta, infatti, sembra ...

Ron Carter: A Clew of Worms

Read "Ron Carter: A Clew of Worms" reviewed by Jim Worsley

So the saying goes, the early bird gets the worm. Occasionally, if one is so fortunate, you can get a whole lot more.

From the beginning just knowing that I was going to have the opportunity to see and hear Ron Carter play was about seeing a legend. Of course you hope to hear ...

Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part I: New Orleans and Chicago

Read "Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part I: New Orleans and Chicago" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Marching bands, ragtime music, and the blues, were all well-entrenched and spreading up the Mississippi River Valley from New Orleans at the beginning of the twentieth century. Dixieland was the popular music staple and with the all-white Original Dixieland Jass Band recording the first jazz side, “Livery Stable Blues," in 1917, an original musical language was ...
