Charlie Rauh: Viriditas

Read "Viriditas" reviewed by Tyran Grillo

With each new project, guitarist Charlie Rauh redefines the parameters of “intimate" as a musical concept. Viriditas is no different. He cradles this set of eight originals, recorded over a brief session in the south of France, like the newborn nephew to whom “Augustine" is dedicated. Even without the backstory, its promise of new life is ...

Dawn Clement Trio
Jazz at Kitano
New York City

Kristin Korb: Beyond the Moon

Read "Beyond the Moon" reviewed by Tyran Grillo

Kristin Korb is a jewel of jewels. The bassist and vocalist commands both of her instruments with panache, engaging them simultaneously with an ease comparable to breathing. Although Beyond the Moon is her eighth disc, in some ways it feels like her first. Not because it lacks evolution, but because it leaps with such wide-eyed conviction. ...

Sara Bielanski: From the Heart

Read "From the Heart" reviewed by Tyran Grillo

Vocalist Sara Bielanski's debut album is heartfelt in the most descriptive sense possible for being inspired by the open-heart surgery that saved her life in 2011. Bielanski, who comes from a classical background yet has always nurtured a love for jazz standards, decided it was time to let that love shine in the studio, and the ...

Leandro Cabral: Alfa

Brazilian pianist and composer Leandro Cabral's second leader date is as multilayered and expansive as anything put out by Benedikt Jahnel, Colin Vallon, or Marcin Wasilewski, and has been captured at the peak of fidelity by engineer ...
