Jacob Duncan: It's Alright To Dream featuring JD Allen

Read "It's Alright To Dream featuring JD Allen" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

In many instances, saxophone summits are ballsy blowouts steeped in performing jazz standards, especially when the hornists are used to leading their own bands, and they just want to get down to business in the studio. But such is not the case here, thanks to superb Louisville, KY-based saxophonist Jacob Duncan's (Norah Jones, Aretha Franklin) original ...


Jacob Duncan: The Busker

Read "The Busker" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Hailing from Louisville, KY., saxophonist Jacob Duncan (Liberation Prophecy) plays his horn with vocal attributes on this trio endeavor that provides a storyline to his travels in the US and abroad. He was a busker (street entertainer) performing his craft near train stations, office complexes and so on, perhaps brightening the days and injecting a little ...


Liberation Prophecy: Invisible House

Read "Invisible House" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

I Liberation Prophecy del sassofonista Jacob Duncan tornano a far parlare con un nuovo “oggetto musicale non identificato" a sette anni esatti dal primo, autoprodotto Last Exit Angel. Lo fanno nel migliore dei modi, confezionando un album intitolato Invisible House, dalla filigrana musicale ricchissima e complessa. Tante sono infatti le tracce che fanno di queste dieci ...


Mike Davis: Fortunes and Hat-Tricks, Vol. 2

Read "Fortunes and Hat-Tricks, Vol. 2" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Double bassist Mike Davis organizes his spontaneous, immediate improvisations-compositions according to two arbitrary guidelines. The Fortunes group of such compositions draw its inspiration from evocative song titles taken from about 100 fortune cookies, but Davis and his trio co-conspirators--saxophonist Jacob Duncan and drummer Jason Tiemann--never discuss their different interpretations of these titles before playing. The second ...


Liberation Prophecy: Invisible House

Read "Invisible House" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The Louisville, KY octet Liberation Prophecy doesn't record that often, but amid other duties, sessions, and educational activities the members realign for their second release Invisible House, following up the critically acclaimed Last Exit Angel (Self-Produced, 2006). Indeed, the band has crafted another winner here. Even though the artists coalesce several disparate genres under the hood, ...


Jacob Duncan: Invisible House

Read "Invisible House" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

Since the politically and culturally turbulent 60s, the word liberation has been incorporated into titles of collectives--remember the radical “Symbionese Liberation Army" and the certainly less violent, but still highly influential “Liberation Orchestra" of bassist Charlie Haden? Even song and album titles from groups as diverse as The Pet Shop Boys and Earth, Wind and Fire ...


Jacob Duncan - John Goldsby - Jason Tiemann: The Innkeeper's Gun

Read "The Innkeeper's Gun" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Jacob Duncan sax contralto, Jason Tiemann batteria e John Goldsby contrabbasso, si trovarono qualche anno fa a suonare in un nightclub di Louisville Kentucky. L'empatia è evidente, l'energia contagiosa, la risposta del pubblico entusiasta. Live at the Nachbar è il risultato discografico di quella serata che inaugura una fitta serie di concerti, di tour negli States ed in Europa, ...
