Read "Crispell-Fonda-Sorgen Trio Live at The Falcon" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Crispell-Fonda-Sorgen Trio
The Falcon
Marlboro, New York
November 26, 2017

From a furious flurry of dissonance, Paul Motian's energetic “Cosmology" emerged as the declarative opening salvo for this intuitive and adventurous set by pianist Marilyn Crispell, bassist Joe Fonda, and drummer Harvey Sorgen.

Crispell, long a ...

Fred Casadei: quello che sto ascoltando

Read "Fred Casadei: quello che sto ascoltando" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Charles Mingus, Mingus Plays Piano, (Impulse!, 1964).

Questo è uno dei dischi che amo di più, fonte di ascolto ma, ancora oggi, di studio. Ci sono soluzioni armoniche davvero moderne, ancora oggi, brani come «Myself When I'm Real» potrebbero essere stati scritti oggi... con la differenza che la passione di Mingus è ...

Gary Peacock: Tangents

Read "Tangents" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Throughout his storied career, bassist/composer Gary Peacock has gone a long way to make the bass an emotive and compelling solo instrument. Yet, when one looks back on--or better yet--listens back to the myriad of great recordings he has given us both as a sideman and leader, it is his emphatic, soul-intuitive, work within the piano ...

Evan Parker

Read "Evan Parker" reviewed by John Eyles

In his biography of Robert Wyatt, Different Every Time (Serpent's Tail, 2015), author Marcus O'Dair describes Evan Parker as “perhaps the finest British free-jazz saxophonist of his generation." The only words in that phrase that seasoned Parker followers might take issue with are “perhaps," “British" and “free-jazz," preferring just to describe him as the finest improvising ...

Fred Anderson: On the Run

Read "Fred Anderson: On the Run" reviewed by Lazaro Vega

This interview was first published at All About Jazz in August 2002 and is part of our ongoing effort to archive pre-database material.

The Roscoe Mitchell Quintet with special guest Fred Anderson played a successful benefit concert for Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp at the Wealthy Theatre in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The quintet's performance, ...

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 & Izumi Kimura
The Hugh Lane Gallery
Dublin, Ireland
March 12, 2017

The Hugh Lane Gallery has been hosting free Sunday afternoon concerts in Dublin for over forty years--a remarkable feat by any yardstick. It's the quality of the music, however, that makes this weekly event something truly special. ...

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 ...
