Dave Pietro: New Road: Iowa Memoirs

Read "New Road: Iowa Memoirs" reviewed by Jack Bowers

In 2011, New York City-based saxophonist Dave Pietro was invited to spend three weeks as artist-in-residence at the University of Iowa. While there, he worked with young musicians in school programs across the state. It proved to be a rewarding commission for the native New Englander who was so enheartened that he chose to recreate the ...

Dave Pietro: New Road: Iowa Memoirs

Read "New Road: Iowa Memoirs" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

In essence, New Road: Iowa Memoirs is the story of an urbanite's awakening to the rural lure. But to state this album's meaning in such reductive terms is to minimize its power and undercut the very beauty that inspired its creation in the first place.

Back in 2011 and 2012, The University of ...

Christian Artmann: Fields Of Pannonia

Read "Fields Of Pannonia" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Flautist Christian Artmann's work seems to be rooted in the notion that art can and will stretch as far as the imagination will take it. And in his case, that's quite a distance. With Fields Of Pannonia, Artmann presents an album-length fantasia, bringing jazz language, baroque influences, impressionistic ideals, swing, straight-eighth grooves, open-ended thoughts, and solidly-structured ...

Kenny Werner: The Melody

Read "The Melody" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The Melody lives up to its name, but not through the simple act of melodic dissemination: pianist Kenny Werner and his trio mates don't make their mark by addressing melodies so much as by undressing them, revealing what's beneath these tuneful coverings. All seven songs on the album--four Werner originals, a Broadway classic, and two standards--speak ...

John O'Gallagher: The Honeycomb

Read "The Honeycomb" reviewed by Mark Corroto

What if jazz was rock-and-roll? Not the corporate-halftime show-American Idol rock, but the dangerous music your parents (maybe grandparents) were afraid of. Remember, there was a time when jazz was threatening. Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie startled listeners with their revolutionary 'bebop,' before Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler caused fist fights and mini-riots. Jazz has since ...

Through a combination of his leadership and vision and the great artistry of the musicians represented in its catalog--including McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, Lee Konitz and many others--the label has clearly made its ...

Rez Abbasi's Invocation: Suno Suno

Read "Suno Suno" reviewed by Matt Marshall

On the second recorded effort with his Invocation group after 2009's Things To Come (Sunnyside), Rez Abbasi opts for more of a rock/groove vibe to underpin the guitarist's modern jazz explorations with his fairly regular cohorts, saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa and pianist Vijay Iyer. Gone is Indian vocalist Kiran Ahluwalia, who sang on much of Things To ...
