Read "Dialogical" reviewed by Troy Dostert

A saxophonist and composer with uncommon ambition, Michael Eaton seems to recognize no limits whatsoever on his craft. He's played in virtually every style imaginable: free improvisation, Latin jazz, post-bop, classical, reggae and rock, just to scratch the surface--and he keeps company with a cross-section of today's cutting-edge players, including James Brandon Lewis, Michael Attias and ...

Quantum Trio, Baba Andrew Lamb & More

Read "Quantum Trio, Baba Andrew Lamb & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

My music GPS keeps pointing to bassist Carlos Bica for riveting music. His new release I Am the Escaped One finds him heading in a different direction than the usual guitar trio. This time he's working with German saxophonist Daniel Erdmann and turntablist DJ Illvibe. The result is captivating. Bica is now living in Germany but ...

Canadian saxophonist and flautist Anna Webber has seen her star rising since settling in New York. She's become a highly regarded member of the creative improvisation scene there, and each recording of her own compositions becomes more impressive.

Michael Attias: échos la nuit

Read "échos la nuit" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In the early days of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's career, there were critics who viewed the blind man with three instruments hanging from his neck--two to be played simultaneously--as posturing. Then they heard him play. Forty years later, and filtered through the influence of four continents, Michaël Attias takes up the task of improvising on two different ...

Sean Conly: Hard Knocks

Read "Hard Knocks" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This trio gives credence to the old saying that, “too many cooks spoil the broth." Given the musicians' course of action, it would seem that additional instrumentalists may have gotten in the way of progress. This is due to the band's extreme agility coupled with a horde of alternative routes, undulating bop grooves, an uncluttered soundstage ...

Marty Ehrlich: Trio Exaltation

Read "Trio Exaltation" reviewed by Troy Dostert

After his previous release, 2013's magnificent big-band disc A Trumpet in the Morning (New World Records), it was unclear whether multi-instrumentalist Marty Ehrlich would continue down the path of large-scale composition or return to the small-to-medium-sized ensembles he's used for most of his recorded output over the years. Well, he's gone small all right: all the ...

Jeong Lim Yang: Déjà Vu

Read "Déjà Vu" reviewed by Troy Dostert

On her excellent debut record, Déjà Vu, bassist Jeong Lim Yang proves that there's more than one way to make a first impression on a listener. Rather than taking the obvious route with up-tempo workouts or deviously complex compositions, Yang is content to carve out plenty of open space for her music to breathe. Her graceful ...
