Die Enttäuschung: Lavaman

Read "Lavaman" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It has been twenty years since Die Enttäuschung recorded the music of Thelonious Monk, but Monk continues to be an essential component of their music making. This is also the case with Steve Lacy and Roswell Rudd's music after their Monk cover band School Days (Emanem, 1975) disbanded. The concepts of Monk's music were integral in ...

Heath Watts: Bright Yellow with Bass

Read "Bright Yellow with Bass" reviewed by John Sharpe

Musicians gravitate towards the sprawling conurbations like New York and Chicago because of the potential for exposure, the pool of talented collaborators and the sheer pull of tradition. But if ever proof were needed that excellent music thrives outside of the these febrile centers, then it can be found on Bright Yellow With Bass. Soprano saxophonist ...

Dave Zoller: Evidence - Music of Thelonious Monk

Read "Evidence - Music of Thelonious Monk" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Younger readers may not believe this, but there was a time when all-Thelonious Monk tribute albums were a rarity. During most of Monk's lifetime, musicians focused on a few of his best-known tunes ("Round Midnight" was--and remains-- the obvious favorite). But then Steve Lacy, Roswell Rudd, and other champions of Monk began to devote whole albums ...

Matt Mitchell, un pianoforte declinato al futuro

Read "Matt Mitchell, un pianoforte declinato al futuro" reviewed by Luca Canini

Se da un lato c'è Tim Berne che ti affida le chiavi del suo quartetto, e dall'altro Steve Coleman che al momento di mettere qualcuno davanti a una tastiera non esita a comporre il tuo numero, vuol dire che qualcosa di buono al pianoforte lo sai fare. Certo, poi serve anche altro per uscire definitivamente allo ...
