Bruce Lindsay's Best Releases Of 2013

Read "Bruce Lindsay's Best Releases Of 2013" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

As 2013 drew to a close the Jazz Police appeared to be resurgent, at least in the UK--busily condemning those foolish enough to make and/or enjoy popular music and entertainment rather than listen to the latest cutting-edge ensemble from somewhere or other. Thankfully, the musicians just got on with it. In at least ten cases, they ...

Phil Meadows Group: Engines Of Creation

Read "Engines Of Creation" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Good things happen on Engines Of Creation: things like imagination, inventive writing, great playing, a sense of humor, an awareness of economy. It's a heartening combination, especially as it arises from a group of young players who have only recently emerged onto the professional jazz scene.

Saxophonist Phil Meadows leads the ensemble and writes the ...

Corey Mwamba / Dave Kane / Joshua Blackmore: Don't Overthink It

Read "Don't Overthink It" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

There's a simple message on the inner sleeve of Don't Overthink It, the first full-length studio recording from vibraphonist Corey Mwamba . bassist Dave Kane and drummer Joshua Blackmore. There's a simple manifesto in its title and some complex improvised music on the album, but enjoying it is a simple matter. The three UK-based musicians are ...

Dave Stapleton

Flight

Edition

2012

Dave Stapleton is a multi-tasker of Olympian energy and talent. That is not a new observation, but as the pianist and record company director's outputs increase, it bears repeating.

Matthew Bourne: Montauk, Billy Moon and the Lost Pianos

Read "Matthew Bourne: Montauk, Billy Moon and the Lost Pianos" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

"I've accepted that I'm not a traditional composer who sits and scores things out, plays them, learns them. I just have a rough sense of something and go out and do it. It often ends up being completely different," says pianist, improviser and composer Matthew Bourne. It's a characteristically honest appraisal, but it fails to do ...

Vortex Jazz Club
London, UK
January 9, 2012

Although saxophonist Paul Dunmall performs in London with reasonable frequency, he rarely appears in the same configuration twice. But for anyone who's heard his excellent Moment To Moment (Slam, 2009), tonight's gig was not to ...
