The Rempis Percussion Quartet: Cochonnerie

Read "Cochonnerie" reviewed by John Sharpe

An unchanged line up on the eighth release from saxophonist Dave Rempis' Percussion Quartet signals a generous helping of rowdy energy and inspired oratory. As the name implies, the drums loom large with two distinctive practitioners in Tim Daisy on the left and Frank Rosaly on the right well separated in the mix (from information supplied ...

AA.VV.: Sky Music - A Tribute to Terje Rypdal

Read "Sky Music - A Tribute to Terje Rypdal" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

In occasione dei 70 anni del chitarrista norvegese Terje Rypdal, il suo collega statunitense Henry Kaiser ha pensato di fargli (e farci) un regalo di compleanno dedicandogli un album tributo insieme ad altri chitarristi che, come lui, hanno subito la sua influenza musicale. Kaiser ha realizzato questo lavoro per la Rune Grammofon coinvolgendo nell'operazione dieci virtuosi ...

Voss, Norway
April 7-9, 2017

Some places punch above their weight. Voss is one. With just 14,000 inhabitants, this small Norwegian town in the county of Hordaland, can boast a world-renowned sky-diving training centre, the country's foremost folk music academy, one of the best wine cellars in ...

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 ...

DKV Trio / The Thing: Collider

Read "Collider" reviewed by John Sharpe

Recorded live at Krakow Jazz Autumn in 2014, Collider unites two of the hardest hitting contemporary outfits in an off the wall summit. It's notable that all the members of the DKV Trio and The Thing, except bassist Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, have a history of working with the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, the large improvising collective ...

Chris Corsano/Sylvie Courvoisier/Nate Wooley: Salt Task

Read "Salt Task" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I imagine the tracks for the inaugural meeting between these improvising musicians are presented to us in the order they were recorded. I say that because the music gives the impression it is undergoing the process of refinement as the recording progresses. Perhaps, as each of the individual tracks progresses.

But, like the musicians, ...

The DKVThingTrio: Collider

Read "Collider" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Le ance di Ken Vandermark e Mats Gustafsson si sono spesso incrociate in avventure intrepide fin dalla metà degli anni Novanta. Nel 2013 erano giunte per la prima volta a confrontarsi in duo e ne era scaturito il notevole CD Verses, che nuovamente mostrava la forza empatica e l'ampia gamma espressiva/esplorativa di un'interazione basata sullo scandaglio ...
