Fred Hersch's Leaves Of Grass
The Appel Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center
New York, NY
September 15, 2017

Walt Whitman's Leaves Of Grass may be the ultimate contemplation on man's commonalities and singularities, underscoring what binds all of humanity and what distinguishes each of us as individuals. And so it's ...

Nadje Noordhuis: Nadje Noordhuis

Read "Nadje Noordhuis" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

On occasion, it is worthwhile to look back on an artist's earlier work--perhaps one that has not been encountered and experienced. In examining Nadje Noordhuis' debut CD, one originally recorded in 2010, there are marvelous new gems to discover and reflections upon which to dwell and meditate.

Nadje Noordhuis is a superbly crafted ...

Sari Kessler: Live At The Kitano

Read "Sari Kessler: Live At The Kitano" reviewed by Tyran Grillo

Sari Kessler
The Kitano
New York
May 5, 2016

On May 5, 2016, Sari Kessler led a multitalented ensemble at the Kitano in celebration of her first album, Do Right. Yet from the way the New York-based singer carried herself, one would've thought it was her fifth. Slowly but surely, Kessler ...

Sari Kessler: Do Right

Read "Do Right" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

In just under five minutes--the running time for producer/percussionist James Shipp's album-opening arrangement of “Walk On By"--Sari Kessler successfully makes the case that jazz singing is her real métier. That particular truth may not have materialized until recent times, as Kessler walked away from a career as a clinical psychologist to pursue a life in music ...

Oded Lev-Ari: Threading

Read "Threading" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

There's more to music than often meets the eye. While educated jazz fans often laud and focus on the artists whose names adorn the cover of albums and the sidemen that support and converse with them, far fewer people applaud the work of figures like Oded Lev-Ari--those men of many hats who work out of sight, ...

Lisa Parrott: Round Tripper

Read "Round Tripper" reviewed by Jack Bowers

In the vernacular, to “parrot" means to imitate or copy. In spite of her point-blank name, Lisa Parrott goes out of her way not to do that, whether on alto or baritone sax. Parrott's alto is lustrous and ripened, summoning at times the halcyon days of the Swing Era, while her baritone is barbed and heavy, ...

Lisa Parrott: Round Tripper

Read "Round Tripper" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

More than ten thousand miles separate New York and Australia, but saxophonist Lisa Parrott's music bridges that gap. On Round Tripper, the Australian-born, New York-based Parrott makes music that speaks to her connections to both locales and the bonds that she's made in both places over the years.

Round Tripper finds Parrot working ...

DIVA: A Swingin' Life

Read "A Swingin' Life" reviewed by Jack Bowers

As if being the premier all-female big band on the planet weren't enough, DIVA has enlisted the services of two purebred divas--Nancy Wilson and Marlena Shaw--to enrich its latest album, A Swingin' Life, recorded live at Pittsburgh's Manchester Craftsmen's Guild (November 2011) and Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center (September 2012).

Awakening Orchestra: Vol. 1: This Is Not the Answer

Read "Vol. 1: This Is Not the Answer" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Questo debutto di Kyle Saulnier è uno dei lavori orchestrali più ricchi e appassionanti degli ultimi anni, paragonabile per fantasia e freschezza a Infernal Machine, il disco d'esordio di Darcy James Argue.
Compositore e polistrumentista, Saulnier è nato nel Connecticut, ha studiato composizione alla Berklee e alla Manhattan School of Music e risiede da ...
