Nu Band: Live In Geneva

Read "Live In Geneva" reviewed by John Sharpe

When NYC-based German trumpeter Thomas Heberer replaced the late lamented Roy Campbell in The Nu Band, it must have been heart-in-mouth time for colleagues bassist Joe Fonda, reedman ...

Joe McPhee: Flowers

Read "Flowers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

For the longest time it was a commonly held belief that solo saxophone performances, especially freely improvised solo saxophone performances, were an acquired taste. Meaning they are things that one has come to like only through experience, but mostly it is a polite way to say you find the music distasteful. Certainly, much of improvised music ...

Remembering Dominic Duval

Read "Remembering Dominic Duval" reviewed by Dom Minasi

Around 1985, I got a call from a close friend and my drummer at the time, Tony Lupo. Tony and I had been friends and playing together since 1963. At that time, we were both into Be-Bop and as we grew in age, our musical tastes and interest leaned towards outside playing. Of course, we never ...

Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody

Read "Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody" reviewed by Maxim Micheliov

In memory of Dominic Duval: 1945-2016. This article was first published in October 2010.

Max Johnson Quartet: Max Johnson Quartet

Read "Max Johnson Quartet" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il disco si presenta nella solida confezione cartonata che caratterizza le uscite Not Two, etichetta polacca fondata nel 1998 da Marek Winiarski dal catalogo sempre più interessante. Ma la vera goduria per gli occhi è la rappresentazione in vivido stile flower- power degli strumenti presenti nell'incisione, veri capolavori grafico/pittorici dai colori sgargianti che sembrano rendere palpabili e vivi in un ...

Anthony and Me

Read "Anthony and Me" reviewed by Dom Minasi

When I was asked to write a column for All About Jazz, my question was what should I write about? I was told anything that was music-oriented.

I decided that being a professional musician for more than fifty years, I could write about the things I care about, know about, have strong opinions about based ...
