Atomic: Six Easy Pieces

Read "Six Easy Pieces" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Founded in 2000, the Swedish/Norwegian group Atomic has remained true to their uncommon blend of American and European influences over the years. With only one lineup change since their inception, the quintet continues to pay homage--in equal parts--to the post 1960s era in the US, and the inherent innovations of Europe's northern-most region. With Six Easy ...

Barry Guy, Marilyn Crispell, Paul Lytton: Deep Memory

Read "Deep Memory" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Quarto CD di questo trio di storici improvvisatori, che come gli altri esce per l'etichetta Intakt. Qui la musica, tutta di Barry Guy, prende spunto da una mostra di quadri del pittore Hughie O'Donoghue, tanto che ogni brano è relativo a una delle sue opere, riportate (anche se con immagini troppo piccole per poterle apprezzare appieno) ...

Joëlle Léandre: A Woman's Work...

Read "A Woman's Work..." reviewed by Mark Corroto

How do you sum up the career of an improvising artist like Joëlle Léandre? Do you reissue a package of recordings from her 40 years of performance? That is probably not possible, given the multiple labels and the location and ownership of the masters. Besides, free improvisation, almost by definition, dissipates (or probably should dissipate) upon ...

Clarence Becton: Straight Ahead Into Freedom

Read "Clarence Becton: Straight Ahead Into Freedom" reviewed by Barbara Ina Frenz

Clarence Becton is a musicians' musician--meaning, someone well-known in musician circles. He belongs to the generation of American jazz heroes who grew up under economically and socially difficult circumstances, and for that very reason, succeeded in gaining a comprehensive education, emancipating himself, and embodying the history of jazz music by directly learning from and working with ...

Barry Guy / Marilyn Crispell / Paul Lytton: Deep Memory

Read "Deep Memory" reviewed by John Sharpe

Bassist Barry Guy took a key role in pianist Howard Riley's groundbreaking trio in the late 60s, early 70s. And while that early experience has in no way defined him, it means it perhaps comes as less of a surprise that he has increasingly turned to the format in the latter part of his career. One ...

Tisziji Munoz: Alpha Nebula Expanded: The Monster Peace

Read "Alpha Nebula Expanded: The Monster Peace" reviewed by Dave Wayne

The visionary guitarist Tisziji Munoz was introduced to the listening public in the late 1970s as a sideman on a now impossibly rare Pharoah Sanders album (Pharoah, India Navigation, 1977). This was followed by his debut as a leader, Rendezvous With Now (India Navigation, 1978). After a decade-long gap in recording activity, Munoz began releasing albums ...

Mark Dresser Seven: Sedimental You

Read "Sedimental You" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In the early stages of his career, bassist/composer Mark Dresser was working with the likes of Anthony Braxton, Marilyn Crispell, and Gerry Hemingway. His long track record of working in composition and improvisation has made him one of the most respected artists in creative music. On Sedimental You, Dresser surrounds himself with a top tier ensemble ...

Yelena Eckemoff Quartet: Leaving Everything Behind

Read "Leaving Everything Behind" reviewed by Dave Wayne

With all of the worldwide hue and cry concerning immigration, precious little is said about the lives of immigrants themselves, the sacrifices they've made and the risks they've taken in order to start their lives anew; free of whatever hardships and oppression they endured in their native country. In the news, entire lives are boiled down ...
