Ingrid Laubrock Serpentines: Serpentines

Read "Serpentines" reviewed by John Sharpe

On the eponymous Serpentines, German-born, NYC-based saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock's unveils a new outfit featuring unconventional instrumentation, peopled by an all star cast. For this line up Laubrock takes her enigmatic charts for groups such as Anti-house and Ubatuba to another level, as improv jazz meets the classical avant-garde in pieces where mood and texture often trump ...

Le Rex: Wild Man / Ingrid Laubrock: Ubatuba

Read "Le Rex: Wild Man / Ingrid Laubrock: Ubatuba" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Due organici praticamente identici (fiati + batteria) con un ruolo importante riservato alla tuba.

Sembrano lontani i tempi in cui questo strumento aveva ritrovato agilità e stupore, sotto le dita di Howard Johnson o Bob Stewart. Ora i fremiti bassi e rugosi dell'ottone glorioso sono esaltati nei ritmi delle musiche di Henry Threadgill ...

Ingrid Laubrock: Ubatuba

Read "Ubatuba" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

It's hard to believe that German born saxophonist and composer Ingrid Laubrock has been recording since the late 1990s, perhaps because there is a distinct newness to every project she releases. Although she trained with Jean Toussaint in London for a short time and later with Dave Liebman, Laubrock is very much a self-made artist with ...

Tony Malaby: Scorpion Eater

Read "Scorpion Eater" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Tubacello: un bel sincretismo lessicale per definire l'organico riunito da Tony Malaby in occasione di questo Scorpion Eater. L'accoppiata di tuba e violoncello (che con il termine tubacello diventano un unico strumento, fantastico) viene scelta dal sassofonista in sostituzione del contrabbasso e dà vita a una formazione di marcata duttilità, in grado di affrontare con efficacia ...

People: 3xaWoman: The Misplaced Files

Read "3xaWoman: The Misplaced Files" reviewed by Troy Collins

3xaWoman is the third genre-defying album from the avant-rock band People and the group's very first recording as a trio for the Telegraph Harp imprint. Originally founded by vanguard guitarist Mary Halvorson and irrepressible drummer Kevin Shea, the intrepid duo's prior efforts were issued by I And Ear Records. Joined by bassist Kyle Forester, this session ...

Nate Wooley Sextet: (Sit In) The Throne Of Friendship

Read "(Sit In) The Throne Of Friendship" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Like today's NFL quarterbacks, trumpeters are required to be multidimensional. Modern players (in football) are required to pass, run, block and call audibles. Likewise, the jazz horn player can't just take a high glissando solo, bow, and collect a paycheck; he/she has to be able to shift between the jazz tradition, improvisation, classical music and outside ...
