Martin Wind: Light Blue

Read "Light Blue" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Releasing a defining album is a pretty nice way to celebrate hitting age 50. If it's a particularly solid outing, so much the better. Martin Wind's milestone comes as he also marks 25 years as a recording player. It seems faintly miraculous that there's really time for him to do his own thing, considering that he's ...


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 ...


Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part II: New York

Read "Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part II: New York" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Jazz didn't abandon jny: Chicago but its further development only began to take on a distinct personality in the 1960s. By the late 1920s, the next phase of the jazz scene had shifted from Chicago to New York though, initially, there was no red carpet rolled out. As jazz bands made their way to New York ...

Nebraska Jazz Orchestra: NJO 40

Read "NJO 40" reviewed by Jack Bowers

NJO 40, the latest CD by the superlative Nebraska Jazz Orchestra, salutes the NJO's first forty years by presenting a series of in-concert recordings taped between 2010-15 whose roster of guest soloists on Tracks 1-10 reads like a who's who of renowned jazz artists from coast to coast.

Sarah Partridge: Bright Lights & Promises: Redefining Janis Ian

Read "Bright Lights & Promises: Redefining Janis Ian" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

How did nobody think to go here before? With a glut of fine Joni Mitchell tributes on the market and a couple of engrossing Laura Nyro nods out there, how is it that no creative spirits in the jazz or cabaret camps thought to make the full-on jump to Janis Ian before now? Hearing Sarah Partridge ...

Rich Halley 5: The Outlier

Read "The Outlier" reviewed by Mark Corroto

After a string of impressive quartet recordings, saxophonist Rich Halley adds multi-instrumentalist Vinny Golia to the lineup for The Outlier. The band is the Rich Halley 5, not the Rich Halley 4 + 1. There is an important distinction here. This session gives the impression of a functioning quintet, not just a guest appearance.

Jack Mouse, Scott Robinson, Janice Borla: Three Story Sandbox

Read "Three Story Sandbox" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

In una situazione di prevedibile improvvisazione totale (nessuna dichiarazione in merito), Jack Mouse e Scott Robinson hanno la non trascurabile accortezza, autentico salvavita in condizioni del genere, di limitare la durata dei brani inanellati in quest'ora scarsa di musica (nessun brano raggiunge i sei minuti), affiancati dalla vocalità di Janice Borla per così dire a macchia ...


Walt Weiskopf: All About the Sound
