Read "Tomasz Dabrowski, Thumbscrew and other new releases" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Back in January 2018, for all intents and purposes, Cuneiform Records shut down most of their operation. A total reassessment of their position in the industry and the state of the industry itself were scheduled. Would they be back or not? Lo and behold, some months later they returned and we have to thank Mary Halvorson, ...

Szun Waves: New Hymn To Freedom

Read "New Hymn To Freedom" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Pythagoras had this notion that the Sun, Moon and planets all emit their own unique hum. Put simply, as these orbs travel through space they produce certain sound waves. Ever wondered what that might actually sound like? Wonder no more, for this second album from vanguard jazz trio Szun Waves is surely what Pythagoras had in ...

Quin Kirchner: The Other Side of Time

Read "The Other Side of Time" reviewed by Kevin Press

Albums that clock in at anything near 90 minutes are not automatically major works. On the other hand, this new effort from Quin Kirchner and Co. is hard to describe in any other terms. Kirchner's six-piece band has delivered a wide-ranging, powerful disc.

Things get rolling with the appropriately titled “Ritual." From the start, ...

Paul Giallorenzo's Git Go: Force Majeure

Read "Force Majeure" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Pianist Paul Giallorenzo's Force Majeure, his second album with his ensemble GitGo, covers a wide variety of motifs but maintains a consistently stimulating, darkly hued ambience. This and Giallorenzo's unique style and modal harmonies give the disc its cohesive character.

The music ranges from the free flowing, five-way conversation on “A Tone" to the ...

AJ Kluth's ALDRIC: Anvils and Broken Bells

Read "Anvils and Broken Bells" reviewed by Lawrence Peryer

While there are many interesting sounds on Anvils and Broken Bells, this release from Chicago-based improviser AJ Kluth (credited to his ensemble ALDRIC), they do not necessarily add up to an entirely compelling work.
