Adam Rudolph's Moving Pictures: Glare of the Tiger

Read "Glare of the Tiger" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Back in the late 1960s/early 70s, maybe we weren't ready for it. The Beatles explored psychedelia and Indian music, as did a plugged-in Miles Davis. Then came John McLaughlin's Shakti, Don Cherry, Yusef Lateef, and Joe Zawinul's Weather Report, to name a few heads of state. The music they played, which now might be filed under ...

Sonic Liberation 8 with Classical Revolution Trio & Oliver Lake: Bombogenic

Read "Bombogenic" reviewed by Dave Wayne

There are a few artists out there who are successfully merging authentic traditional Afro-Cuban and Caribbean rhythms with 21st Century jazz in a way that refers to, but doesn't sound like, typical Latin jazz: Adam Rudolph's Go Organic Orchestra and Kip Hanrahan's various groups immediately come to mind.

Avram Fefer's Big Picture Holiday: Shimmer And Melt

Read "Shimmer And Melt" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Let's rescue the musical descriptor 'fusion,' a pejorative word used in jazz circles to connote a work of lesser weight and significance. We don't use that word when the jazz fusion is carried out by Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, and in this case saxophonist Avram Fefer. His assemblage called Big Picture Holiday merges not just jazz ...

This acoustic-electric guitar summit by an upper-echelon congregation of modernists yields a polychromatic listening experience, conducted and organized by composer, percussionist, Adam Rudolph. And it should come as no surprise that the musicians' distinct styles and vernaculars create added value here.
