The Politics of Dancing: Jazz and Protest, Part 2

Read "The Politics of Dancing: Jazz and Protest, Part 2" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Part 1 of Jazz and Protest took an in-depth look at two landmark artists and the songs that laid the groundwork for protest within the jazz community. Billie Holiday's “Strange Fruit" took a circuitous route from its origins as a poem to its successful recording on a small label that was not afraid to lend a ...

Adam Berenson / Scott Barnum: Penumbra

Read "Penumbra" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Not one to be tethered to genres or styles, pianist and composer Adam Berenson has been long at home as a jazz pianist, a classical composer, an electronics player or any permutation of those roles. His previous double-CD Lumen (Dream Play, 2014)--complete with two string quartets--was indeed a far-ranging collection of styles and genres that the ...

John Abercrombie Quartet: Up and Coming

Read "Up and Coming" reviewed by John Kelman

Starting the new year with, if not precisely a bang, a nevertheless unforgettable record whose strength lies in pristine lyricism, nuanced group interplay and writing that capitalizes on the entire quartet's appreciation of subtlety over gymnastics and refined lyricism over angularity, John Abercrombie's Up and Coming--ECM's first release of the year--is also founded strongly on the ...

Gerry Malkin Quintet
The BeanRunner Café
Peekskill, New York
November 12, 2016

The Gerry Malkin Quintet is a quintessential, hard-working, New York area group that plays top-notch music, while going under-recognized in the competitive and crowded metropolitan marketplace. What is atypical of its session-savvy members are jazz pedigrees that run deep ...

The Core Trio featuring Matthew Shipp: The Core Trio Live, featuring Matthew Shipp

Read "The Core Trio Live, featuring Matthew Shipp" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

What we have here is no-nonsense free improvisation where the track titles are chronologically functional but the music has a mind of its own. This is the Core Trio, who in direct opposition to that kind of pragmatic naming convention, have consistently performed and recorded as a small combo with an additional guest. Robert Boston, Steve ...

Quinsin Nachoff: Flux

Read "Flux" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Listening to Flux by saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff, it's easy to see in your mind's eye the DNA double helix beautifully spinning in the dark space of the human cell. That's because Nachoff composes tight, complex chamber pieces, seemingly delicate in structure, but able to withstand the attack of the jazz infantry.

Nachoff's training and ...

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. Near Life Experience also continues to hone the cinematic keyboardist's increasingly expansive, ...
