Tom Rainey Trio: Combobulated

Read "Combobulated" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Tom Rainey è da anni batterista tra i più versatili. A suo agio nella lingua della tradizione (Fred Hersch, Joe Lovano, Carmen McRae, il suo gruppo Obbligato..) ma anche nelle forme aperte della postmodernità (Tim Berne, David Torn, Nels Cline...), raggiunge con il suo trio risultati anomali, di volta in volta più sorprendenti. Sempre affiancato da ...

Tom Rainey Trio: Hotel Grief

Read "Hotel Grief" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Che sia un piano-trio jazz (Kenny Werner, Fred Hersch, Kris Davis) o un gruppo a composizione stratificata e complessa (Tim Berne), oppure un gioco di libera improvvisazione (i Lark, Tony Malaby), il drumming di Rainey è garanzia di sorpresa, tensione drammatica, ...

Tom Rainey Trio: Camino Cielo Echo

Read "Camino Cielo Echo" reviewed by Mark Corroto

For its second outing, drummer Tom Rainey's trio establishes itself as a commanding representative of the latest direction in pioneering jazz. By creating (more like co-creating) music with two of today's in-demand players--guitarist Mary Halvorson and saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock--Rainey continues his streak of outings with vanguard players.

The drummer has been heard in cutting-edge bands ...

Tom Rainey Trio: Pool School

Read "Pool School" reviewed by Chris May

Though there are more substantial things to observe about Brooklyn-based drummer Tom Rainey's Pool School, let's start by saying that the disc's hand-tinted, faux 1930s cover art is among the more stylish to have emerged so far in 2010. And even if the imagery is most immediately resonant of summer in Portugal, the Clean Feed label's ...

Tom Rainey Trio: Pool School

Read "Pool School" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Chiunque abbia avuto il piacere di vedere/ascoltare Tom Rainey [dal vivo o su disco, più probabilmente nei gruppi di Tim Berne] non avrà avuto difficoltà a riconoscere nel musicista californiano uno dei batteristi più originali e versatili della sua generazione - che pure di talenti dietro i tamburi ne annovera molti. Per il primo disco a proprio nome, confermando ...
