The NJE: Afloat

Read "Afloat" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

The NJE trio tackles Hendrix's “Voodoo Child" with ...

Live From Old York: Taupe, Dr. K. Sextet, Leveret, 3*3, Kris Drever & Joan As Police Woman

Taupe
The Basement
March 3, 2017

Taupe is a colour that's ostensibly beige, but in reality seems to frequently inhabit a close-to-grey zone. Taupe is also the chosen name of this stripling prog-jazz trio from Newcastle-upon-Tyne in northern England. Puzzlingly so, as their compacted, nervous, twitching compositions suggest something brighter, ...

Led Bib: Umbrella Weather

Read "Umbrella Weather" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When you're talking umbrella weather, there's rain and then there's rain. A drizzle and a downpour are two very different beasts, and this most certainly qualifies as the latter. Led Bib opens up the heavenly and hellish skies to create a deluge in sound on this terrifically tempestuous RareNoise date.

Some bands born ...

Live From Birmingham: Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Mark Holub, George Clinton & Polar Bear

Read "Live From Birmingham: Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Mark Holub, George Clinton & Polar Bear" reviewed by Martin Longley

Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club
Symphony Hall
April 13, 2015

Rarely does a gig prompt such an ambivalent response as this 'adiós' show by the very veteran Buena Vista posse. Musical vibrations were typically very positive within their extensive set-list of Cuban songs, covering all moods, from up-tempo near-salsa ...

Led Bib: The People in Your Neighbourhood

Read "The People in Your Neighbourhood" reviewed by Claudio Bonomi

I Led Bib si confermano con questo album, il settimo della loro carriera iniziata nel 2003, compreso il live The Good Egg uscito sempre nel 2014 solo su vinile, come una delle formazioni più vispe della giovane e sempre più agitata scena jazz britannica insieme a gruppi come i Polar Bear, i Get The Blessing e ...

Led Bib: The People In Your Neighbourhood

Read "The People In Your Neighbourhood" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The People In Your Neighbourhood comes from Led Bib, “rock-jazzers" with a neat line in catchy grooves and prog-rock-meets-free-jazz. The London-based outfit, led by New Jersey ex-pat drummer Mark Holub, has been around for over a decade, gaining a Mercury Prize nomination for Sensible Shoes (Cuneiform Records, 2009). After a quiet couple of years since the ...

Outside Line: Introducing Outside Line

Read "Introducing Outside Line" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The glory days of Leeds United may be long gone, but while its football team has seen better times, the Yorkshire city's music scene has gone from strength to strength. The individualist stance taken by musicians such as Matthew Bourne hasn't always pleased the jazz police, but it's given Leeds a reputation as a vibrant and ...

Admirers of fellow Cuneiform Records artists, Gutbucket and Led Bib or other groups embracing the jazz-rock and progressive rock genres may find a lot to get revved up about with the Polish quartet, Tatvamasi. No doubt, it's an aggressive unit, armed with a vibrant demeanor as they tread across the jazz and rock terrains with polyrhythmic ...
