Stefan Aeby

The dream of a perfect world. A world of freedom. Of equality. Of self- realization. A world in flux and rebirth. Curiosity as well as the search for consistency and familiarity. Big becomes small and limits disappear. Everything seems possible… And in the middle of this: a piano trio. A trio which dreams of being free, but still together. A trio with a curious and open spirit that allows limits to disappear without losing its roots. With the perfect match of Michael Stulz on drums and André Pousaz on bass, Stefan Aeby`s piano playing and composing have found a new tonal dimension with a strong personal sound spectrum as well as a real touching and intimate band sound

Gordon Grdina, Karl Berger & Jason Kao Hwang, Byron Asher & Colin Hinton

Read "Gordon Grdina, Karl Berger & Jason Kao Hwang, Byron Asher & Colin Hinton" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Vancouver's Gordon Grdina is masterfully adept at guitar and oud, so that flexibility leads to many possibilities for playing opportunities, from jazz and improv settings to his world music group, Haram. This episode finds Grdina opening things up with music from two very recent recordings: Skin and Bones (with Matthew Shipp and Mark Helias) and Cooper's ...

Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz

Read "Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Two rather contrasting recordings highlight this episode: Dan Weiss with his trio augmented by a second bassist and Rubberband, the once-shelved and now revived release from Miles Davis which was recorded after he had left Columbia. On Weiss' album, he displays the chops (often with heavy rock influences) that make him such a high-in-demand player, while ...

Trio Treats

Read "Trio Treats" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode is dominated by trios, perhaps the most popular format in jazz today. Steve Lehman's new The People I Love debuts (with the addition of the formidable pianist Craig Taborn), definitely a must-hear for 2019. Golden Valley Is Now reunites Taborn with Dave King and Reid Anderson (they all grew up together), while another threesome ...

Christoph Irniger Pilgrim: Crosswinds

Read "Crosswinds" reviewed by Don Phipps

With Crosswinds, Christoph Irniger's quartet Pilgrim offers a scintillating trip into a musical subconscious --a dream state where one opens doors only to find more doors --a spiral staircase where the top is always just beyond reach. For the most part, the album consists of tunes that are both sparse yet engaging. And it is this ...

Szun Waves, other new releases and some archive cuts

Read "Szun Waves, other new releases and some archive cuts" reviewed by Bob Osborne

Blurring the boundaries between jazz, ambience and electronica, the sophomore album from Szun Waves New Hymn to Freedom, is the album of the week on the show. This new release is a document of six entirely live improvisations with “no edits or overdubs." The album title is apt, it is jazz, but it also bedded in ...

Arriva al terzo album il trio del pianista svizzero Stefan Aeby, adesso su etichetta Intakt e con un nuovo batterista, Michi Stulz, mentre al contrabbasso rimane André Pousaz. Le composizioni sono tutte originali, della penna di Aeby, a segnalare fin dal programma un progetto artistico orientato alla contemporaneità. La formazione è pienamente paritetica e ...
