Hypercolor: Hypercolor

Read "Hypercolor" reviewed by Dave Wayne

The past few months have seen a stream of truly--and in some cases mind-bogglingly--wonderful guitar-centric power trio albums. Yet, the eponymous debut of the Brooklyn-based avant-jazz-rock band Hypercolor stands out, but not for the reasons you'd think. Sure, the trio consists of musical brainiacs James Ilgenfritz and Lukas Ligeti; genre omnivores whose own work and collaborations ...

Tal Gur: Under Contractions

Read "Under Contractions" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Uncertainty, synchronicity, discombobulation, frustration, and fragility all come to the surface on Under Contractions--the third album from Israeli-born, New York-based saxophonist Tal Gur.

Gur--a practicing music therapist--has a way of coaxing emotions out of his instrument(s), turning his own work into a form of self-examination. It's true that autobiography has a place in ...

Read "Fighter Planes & Praying Mantis" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

He studied music in Boston, then relocated to San Francisco where he studied with Roberto DeHaven, the minister and musician of Saint John's Orthodox Church, better known as the John Coltrane Church.

Yoni Kretzmer 66 Boxes: Graceless

Read "Graceless" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Israeli, New York-based tenor saxophonist Yoni Kretzmer returns on Graceless to an old passion of his--writing music that attempts to bridge the forward-thinking jazz from the school of sax heroes Tim Berne, Ellery Eskelin, and European jazz with elements from contemporary chamber music. Kretzmer's debut album as a leader, Yoni Kretzmer's New Dilemma (Earsay, 2009) focused ...

9Volt: Open Circuit

Read "Open Circuit" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The career of Israeli guitarist Eyal Maoz, now based in New York, is a schizophrenic one. He releases albums on the Tzadik label with his Radical Jewish quartet Edom (the self-titled, 2005 debut and 2009'sa Hope and Destruction) and takes part in saxophonist John Zorn's ongoing Masada songbook, including 2012's Abraxas: The Book Of Angels, Volume ...
