Marco Pignataro: Almas Antiguas

Read "Almas Antiguas" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trying to place the music of saxophonist Marco Pignataro squarely in a single space, musical or otherwise, is a fruitless endeavor. His roots span oceans, his sound draws on myriad sources, and his open approach to influence and association(s) catapults him to another realm entirely. Yet all roads paved by heart and art in tandem tend ...

The Gil Evans Orchestra: Hidden Treasures Vol. 1, Monday Nights

Read "Hidden Treasures Vol. 1, Monday Nights" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

In the '70s composer and arranger Gil Evans, after years of outstanding studio arranging for Miles Davis and others, put together a performing orchestra which took influences from the jazz-rock and fusion concepts of the time. That orchestra released several fine albums such as Svengali (Atlantic, 1973) and There Comes A Time (RCA, 1975) and, on ...

Jim McNeely: Barefoot Dances and Other Visions

Read "Barefoot Dances and Other Visions" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

When today's top composer-arrangers of large ensemble jazz are discussed, Jim McNeely's name sometimes gets overlooked. He deserves the recognition. He's been a long- time associate of the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra and its descendant, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and he's also done a lot of work with several European big bands. It could be ...

Rachel Caswell: We're All in the Dance

Read "We're All in the Dance" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

If you want proof of singer Rachel Caswell's jazz chops, you could skip right to the last two tracks. She scats the head of bebop saxophonist Charlie Parker's evergreen “Dexterity" along with guitarist (and producer) Dave Stryker, then blends in with the rest of the band for a round of solos. Sticking with the bebop theme, ...

Samuel Martinelli: Crossing Paths

Read "Crossing Paths" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Crossing Paths, the debut from New York-based Brazilian drummer Samuel Martinelli, is a quartet date rich in rhythmic verve. Martinelli provides strong originals, puts his own stamp on a classic or two, adds hearty support, and delivers with grace while his seasoned colleagues--trumpeter Claudio Roditi, bassist Marcus McLaurine, and pianist Tomoko Ohno--magnify his intentions and find ...

Carol Liebowitz/Bill Payne: Spiderwebmandala

Read "Spiderwebmandala" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Spiderwebmandala is an album that miraculously manages to simultaneously capitalize on the concepts of connectivity and detachment, toying with a form of polarity tied to the very notion of togetherness and using it as the ultimate artistic tool.

Having worked together since 2010, pianist Carol Liebowitz and clarinetist Bill Payne are more than ...

Hendrik Meurkens/Bill Cunliffe: Cabin In The Sky

Read "Cabin In The Sky" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Hendrik Meurkens is a natural-born collaborator. That statement might smack of the obvious, as jazz musicians on the whole tend to thrive on a synergistic model, but it need be said with regard to this German-born, New York-based harmonica hero (and vibraphonist of note). Whether engaging in a pas de deux with pianist Misha Tsiganov, sharing ...
