Bill Carrothers: Red Planet

Read "Red Planet" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Solo un'idea s'intende perché poi l'ascolto rivela una ...

Adam Berenson / Scott Barnum: Penumbra

Read "Penumbra" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Not one to be tethered to genres or styles, pianist and composer Adam Berenson has been long at home as a jazz pianist, a classical composer, an electronics player or any permutation of those roles. His previous double-CD Lumen (Dream Play, 2014)--complete with two string quartets--was indeed a far-ranging collection of styles and genres that the ...

Kevin Brady: Ensam

Read "Ensam" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The trans-Atlantic trio of drummer/composer Kevin Brady, Bill Carrothers and Dave Redmond first came together in 2006, since when it has toured more frequently than it's recorded.

Bill Stewart: Space Squid

Read "Space Squid" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The musicians that appear on Space Squid only played one gig together as a band before recording this music, but the connections were there prior to that performance and studio session. Drummer Bill Stewart's relationship with pianist Bill Carrothers and saxophonist Seamus Blake extends back some two decades. Both men appear on Stewart's Telepathy (Blue Note, ...

Adam Berenson: Lumen

Read "Lumen" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

More than forty years ago, Harry Nillson coined the phrase “A point in every direction is the same as no point at all" and as an axiom it has stood the test of time very well. However, Adam Berenson topples the adage with his unlimited imagination and a refined command of weaving multiple genres and sub-genres ...
