Wing Walker Orchestra: Hazel

Read "Hazel" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Giovani orchestratori s'affacciano di continuo sulla scena jazzistica statunitense, con opere a volte sconcertanti come questa ma comunque originali e degne di attenzione. Leader della Wing Walker Orchestra è Drew Williams, trentenne clarinetto basso proveniente da una cittadina del Missouri, diplomato in composizione jazz a New York, dove ha studiato con Ralph Alessi, Rich Perry e ...

Sara Gazarek: Thirsty Ghost

Read "Thirsty Ghost" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Le vocalist emerse dopo il 2010 (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Jazzmeia Horn, Veronica Swift, Cyrille Aimée ecc...) hanno messo un po' in ombra quelle del decennio precedente come Kate McGarry, Gretchen Parlato e appunto Sara Gazarek. È piuttosto buffo che l'interprete californiana (nata a Seattle ma a losangelina dal 2000) continui a essere votata nel critics poll ...

Master Drummer Jason Harnell Breaks New Ground With Experimental CD And Multimedia Experience, Total Harnage

When Jason Harnell was six years old, his father, Grammy winning composer and arranger Joe Harnell, invited Louie Bellson to their house to hear the budding prodigy play. After playing a 15-minute solo, the legendary drummer handed the sticks to Jason and said, “Your turn.” When Jason finished, an impressed Bellson gave the boy his drum ...

Francesca Prihasti: Adriana

Read "Adriana" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Francesca Prihasti paints a series of fantastic notions and tuneful tales on Adriana. For this, her third album following Night Trip (Self Produced, 2014) and Evolving (Self Produced, 2015), the young pianist expands her palette while drawing meaning from the personal realm: The album's inspiration is Prihasti's late mother, Adriana, who passed away in May of ...

Jesse Byrom-Carter: The Next Tomorrow Is Yesterday

Read "The Next Tomorrow Is Yesterday" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Australian-born bassist Jesse Byrom-Carter finds himself at home in the New York City jazz scene with his first album. His compositional strength is at the forefront, with tunes that contain discernable melodies and a controlled, yet dynamic, rhythmic range. The ensemble is tethered nicely, with a prudent use of soloing. Instead, the listener is treated to ...

Jesse Byrom-Carter: The Next Tomorrow Is Yesterday

Read "The Next Tomorrow Is Yesterday" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Jennifer Wharton: Bonegasm

Read "Bonegasm" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Esattamente sessant'anni fa Melba Liston incideva Melba Liston and Her Bones, presentando due ensemble con ognuno quattro tromboni più ritmica. Quel disco dimenticato della grande trombonista è un antecedente significativo di quanto fa oggi Jennifer Wharton. È ovviamente improprio stabilire connessioni con un'opera così lontana nel tempo ma sul versante della ricchezza espressiva, melodica e ritmica ...

Jennifer Wharton's Bonegasm: Bonegasm

Read "Bonegasm" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The bass trombone occupies a unique niche, serving as that most powerful of pedal peddlers, the anchor of a big band's brass section, and the ballast stabilizing harmonies. Unfortunately, the instrument also holds status as a seriously pigeonholed force. While you can't argue with the usefulness of its robust, below-the-staff whole notes, this horn is made ...

Dafnis Prieto Big Band: Back to the Sunset

Read "Back to the Sunset" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The alliance of Latin music and American jazz ripened on these shores more than seventy years ago, nourished by pioneers such as Mario Bauza, Chano Pozo, Dizzy Gillespie, Machito, Tito Puente and others. It has been carried forward and enhanced since then by a succession of remarkable innovators including in recent years the Cuban-born drummer Dafnis ...

Alan Ferber Big Band: Jigsaw

Read "Jigsaw" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The Jigsaw mapped out by trombonist Alan Ferber's splendid New York City-based ensemble comprises a number of dissimilar pieces, drawn from a broad range of musical patterns, which makes its assemblage arduous yet ultimately rewarding. Ferber's sophisticated arrangements manifest a pensive, and at times ethereal, temper that is far removed from the realm of flag-wavers and ...
