Jeff Cosgrove, Scott Robinson, Ken Filiano: Hunters & Scavengers

Read "Hunters & Scavengers" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Nove brani a firma collettiva e la pagina più celebrata di Ornette Coleman compongono questo bell'album di un trio assolutamente paritario (anche se il merito di averlo riunito si deve al batterista Jeff Cosgrove) che propone un jazz in possesso dei sapori più veraci dell'avanguardia storica (peraltro senza particolari salti nel vuoto). In più di un ...

Ben Monder, Ingrid Laubrock and More

Read "Ben Monder, Ingrid Laubrock and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

The Dutch powerhouse quintet Spinifex included a pair of tracks imbued with Sufi traditional music of Kurdish/Iranian origin, and a Qawali traditional from Pakistan on their last recording, Amphibian Ardour; they loved the challenge of fusing those styles into their irregular structures and free jazz so much that they decided to go all in on their ...

Jeff Cosgrove / Scott Robinson / Ken Filiano: Hunters & Scavengers

Read "Hunters & Scavengers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In the 1980s, artist Jenny Holzer created short, pithy statements projected by LED lights in museums and onto Times Square. Her now famous “Abuse of Power Comes As No Surprise" text sums up not only the #MeToo movement and the #BlackLivesMatter cry, but also to some extent, the music industry. The vertical construction of many jazz ...

Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain

Read "Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If music was sports, then Ivo Perelman would be baseball and most other musicians football. Where football's regular season is 16 games, baseball plays 162. Likewise, most musicians release one album every year or two, but Perelman has averaged seven titles per year for the last seven years. His 2017 Leo Records output is thirteen (fourteen, ...

Frank Kimbrough: Solstice

Read "Solstice" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Pianist Frank Kimbrough's latest offering, Solstice on the Pirouet label, is a joy from beginning to end. Pirouet is the home of some other fine piano trios, including those of Marc Copland (see Some Love Songs, Modinha, Voices and Night Whispers).
