Satoko Fujii - Joe Fonda: 4

Read "4" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

When pianist Satoko Fujii and bassist Joe Fonda first teamed up on Duet (Long Song Records, 2016), neither was familiar with the work of the other. Three short years later, “other" no longer applies, as the instantaneous rapport Fujii and Fonda found has led to a growing portfolio of cutting-edge music. 4 is the latest entry ...

Denman Maroney: Solo @70

Read "Solo @70" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Denman Maroney, best-known for his use of the dual-keyboard hyper piano, celebrates his seventieth birthday with a massive collection of solo pieces played on the traditional piano. However, there is little traditional about Solo@70. Maroney's sizable catalog of over forty releases includes several solo projects; the previous such album, Domicil Solo (Live) (Self Produced, 2017) consisting ...

Mark Dresser Seven: Ain’t Nothing But A Cyber Coup & You

Read "Ain’t Nothing But A Cyber Coup & You" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Brani ampi (sei) intercalati da fugaci “tavole preparatorie" (non più di un minuto), minimali anche in quanto a dispiegamento di forze in campo, con una dedica iniziale e una finale, fissano l'istantanea, la radiografia, di questo nuovo lavoro del notevole settetto riunito da Mark Dresser già tre anni or sono (una sola variante di organico: il ...

Albert Beger, Gianni Lenoci, Gabriel Ferrandini & More

Read "Albert Beger, Gianni Lenoci, Gabriel Ferrandini & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

OGJB Quartet & The Last Poets

Read "OGJB Quartet & The Last Poets" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

There's no way to use geographical borders to define this music called jazz. For instance, the Freequestra from Slovenia: led by acclaimed guitarist Samo Salamon— the ensemble wends its way with power and emotion through Salamon's new Free Sessions Vol.2, a rollicking excursion through the avant-garde. Or in the case of OGJB, a quartet of four ...
