It might seem odd that the guitarist who left Genesis more than 35 years ago has ultimately become the only one to champion the music made during the group's years spent in the progressive rock arena, while those who ...

Paul Wertico's Mid East/Mid West Alliance: Impressions of a City

Read "Impressions of a City" reviewed by John Kelman

For those only familiar with his work in Pat Metheny Group, drummer Paul Wertico's extracurricular career will be something of a shock. He may have been all light cymbal work and gentle pulses with PMG, but on albums like The Sign of Four (Knitting Factory, 1997)--a freewheeling session with Metheny in a “beyond"-Song X (Nonesuch, 1985) ...

Gordon Grdina

Bar 4

Brooklyn, NY September 7, 2009

There were other things in the music Gordon Grdina played at Bar 4, bits of McLaughlin, Santana, Sharrock, but for the first few minutes of his trio's Sep. 7th set it was hard to hear anything other than how together they were. From the ...

01. Jeff Buckley - Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk (Columbia - 1998). Buckley è uno dei cantanti più espressivi che abbia mai ascoltato. Adoro anche il suo modo di scrivere e questo brillante seguito di Grace ci fa intendere su quale musica incredibile stesse lavorando prima della tragica morte nel 1995. 02. Charles Ives - The Symphonies/Orchestral Sets ...

Gregg Bendian

Read "Gregg Bendian" reviewed by Bill Milkowski

Since the early '90s, drummer Gregg Bendian has distinguished himself as an adventurous and accomplished player-composer through his sideman work with the likes of Derek Bailey, Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, John Zorn, Peter Brotzmann and Pat Metheny while also leading his own Interzone Quartet and Trio Pianissimo. His most recent recording is the startlingly virtuosic solo ...

Various Artists: Mahavishnu Redefined: A Tribute to John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra

Read "Mahavishnu Redefined: A Tribute to John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra" reviewed by John Kelman

With guitar icon John McLaughlin's greater visibility, thanks to recent tours with his 4th Dimension group and Five Peace Band collaboration with pianist Chick Corea, there's been a flurry of reassessment of his vast and vital output as a repertory source. Drummer Gregg Bendian's Mahavishnu Project delivered first-time performances with Return to the Emerald Beyond (Cuneiform, ...

Nels Cline: Coward

Read "Coward" reviewed by Stuart Broomer

Few guitarists cover the sheer range of Nels Cline, moving between genres from folk and rock, as a member of Wilco, to free jazz, with Vinny Golia and Gregg Bendian among others, to his own highly eclectic projects that impinge on all of these categories.

Coward is a solo record, in the sense that ...

Gregg Bendian: Research

Read "Research" reviewed by John Kelman

All-percussion ensemble albums are rare in any genre. Still, by digging deep, it's possible to find exceptional discs like Swiss percussionist Pierre Favre's Singing Drums (ECM, 1984) and, more recently, The New Percussion Group of Amsterdam's Go Between (Summerfold, 2007), proving that percussion needn't be just about the rhythm.

Solo percussion albums are even less common. ...
