FORQ
The World Café Live
Philadelphia PA

Julian & Roman Wasserfuhr: Landed in Brooklyn

Read "Landed in Brooklyn" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

German brothers Julian and Roman Wasserfuhr have been highly regarded talents in their home country since they were teenagers. Signed to the ACT label in 2006, their debut album that year, Remember Chet (for Chet Baker), showed remarkable maturity.

Scott Kinsey: Near Life Experience

Read "Near Life Experience" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been a full decade since Scott Kinsey last released an album under his own name (the 2006 Abstract Logix debut, Kinesthetics) and, if anything, Near Life Experience manages to trump actually its predecessor in both ambition and Kinsey's significant cast of invited contributors.

Zhenya Strigalev: Never Group

Read "Never Group" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Alto saxophonist Zhenya Strigalev's trio Never Group with drummer Eric Harland and bassist Tim Lefebvre bring its definition of punk jazz with in-ear-your-ear performances with a nonchalant attitude. Recorded over two days in Berlin with a few guests dropping in on the fun, the recording is compelling in its inventive energy.
