Chad Taylor: Myths and Music Education

Read "Chad Taylor: Myths and Music Education" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Few drummers know how to use rhythms like Chad Taylor. He makes the drum set sing melodies and paints different hues and shades on the cymbals and skins. He can play inside and outside and has performed with musicians like saxophonists Fred Anderson, Pharoah Sanders and James Brandon Lewis, pianists Cooper-Moore and Angelica Sanchez, guitarists Jeff ...

James Brandon Lewis and Chad Taylor: Radiant Imprints

Read "Radiant Imprints" reviewed by Mark Corroto

When saxophonist James Brandon Lewis released Divine Travels (Okeh, 2014) with bassist William Parker and drummer Gerald Cleaver, the jazz world went from “who is this guy?" to “make space at the table," because listeners had discovered a truly distinctive voice. After that came Days Of Freeman (Okeh, 2015) with Jamaaladeen Tacuma and Rudy Royston and ...

Eric Revis: Sing Me Some Cry

Read "Sing Me Some Cry" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

La vicenda artistica di Eric Revis è esemplare per la propria coerenza: ci ricorda ancora una volta il ruolo avuto da molti contrabbassisti nel jazz contemporaneo, che sulle direttrici di metodo e prassi tracciate da Charles Mingus sanno coniugare una forte e sensibile preparazione sullo strumento alla capacità di organizzare stimolanti formazioni e di comporre in ...

Read "Mark Corroto's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by Mark Corroto

And what a year it was. With all hurricanes, raging fires, and end-of-the-world politics, we were fortunate to have the magical salve that is music. Complied here are my favorite releases of this past year. I tried to pare down a long list of 50 to 10, but it was impossible. The music you see below ...

Eric Revis: Sing Me Some Cry

Read "Sing Me Some Cry" reviewed by John Sharpe

Away from his tenure with Branford Marsalis, bassist Eric Revis continues in the adventurous vein established by his previous dates on the Clean Feed imprint. His latest group if anything operates even more on the edge. With the return of reedman Ken Vandermark into the fold, Revis has a unit to die for. The Chicago-based hornman ...

Borderlands Trio: Asteroidea

Read "Asteroidea" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I'll venture a guess that the listing of the names on Borderlands Trio's cover is arranged in alphabetic order, Crump, Davis, then McPherson. That is because nothing in the performance reveals a leader, nor a dominant signature. For adventurous listeners, isn't that exactly what we want from our improvisors?

Let's stick with just Borderlands ...
