Christine Tobin: A Thousand Kisses Deep

Read "A Thousand Kisses Deep" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

A Thousand Kisses Deep brings together Christine Tobin's voice, Leonard Cohen's songs, a bunch of Premier League musicians and superb arrangements. What's not to like? Nothing. There's absolutely nothing not to like.

Tobin is blessed with a distinctive, expressive, voice. She's also an artist who pursues her own vision with an admirable determination--and who ...

Live From Old York: Jim White, Vijay Venkat, Adriano Adewale & Benjamin Taubkin

Jim White
Fibbers
September 18, 2013

Three hours of oddball Americana. Well, the evening's opening act was a local songster, but Boss Caine sounded like he was growling deeply from across the Atlantic. He was followed with virtually no pause by Paul Fonfara, who offered five of his very ...

Benjamin Taubkin - Adriano Adewale: The Vortex Sessions

Read "The Vortex Sessions" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Idee inusuali ma incerte connotano la recente produzione discografica di questo duo brasiliano. Le infinite sfumature e i registri espressivi della propria tradizione musicale vengono abbandonati dai due musicisti in favore di un jazz elegante e lirico, tutt'altro che originale sul piano dell'organizzazione musicale. I due evitano le pastoie del Brasile da cartolina, ma rimangono intrappolati ...

Davide Mantovani: Choices

Read "Choices" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Strip out every other musician from the tunes on Choices and Davide Mantovani's bass lines are impressively attention-grabbing on their own. Put the other musicians back in and Choices becomes a richly-hued collection that takes inspiration from almost every corner of the globe.

Mantovani moved to London from his native Italy in 1991 and has ...

Oriole: Every New Day

Read "Every New Day" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

There's a stark beauty to Every New Day, the third album from Oriole, that speaks of the majesty of vast open spaces. For the most part, the warmth and splendor of these spaces gives the music a positivity and optimism, but there are also times when it takes on a more downbeat and reflective quality. The ...

Oriole

Every New Day

F-IRE

2012

Oriole's third album of sonorous South American and Iberian-flavored jazz has been some time coming. The London group, led by guitarist and composer Jonny Phillips, debuted with Song For The Sleeping in 2005 and followed up a year later with Migration (both F-IRE). There has been ...

Paul Booth: Trilateral

Read "Trilateral" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

For some people the Big 4-0 is the key, for others it's the Big 5-0 or 6-0 or 7-0. For saxophonist Paul Booth it was his forthcoming 33rd birthday that proved to be a cause for reflection. As the day loomed in 2010, Booth was already thinking about a trio record with bass and drums. The ...

Asaf Sirkis: Letting Go

Read "Letting Go" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The quiet evolution of drummer Asaf Sirkis as a composer has been fascinating to behold and almost as beguiling as his playing. The confluence of influences that give shape to his rhythms--Middle Eastern, Indian and jazz--combined with a love of Sun Ra's music and an interest in astronomy, results in music which is difficult to pin ...
