Vibes and Bass: Frantelunia

Read "Frantelunia" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Other than vibraphonist Gary Burton's periodic duo collaborations with pianist Chick Corea, bassist Steve Swallow, and guitarist Ralph Towner, it's difficult to think of many examples of the vibraphones in a duo setting. Vibraphonist Walt Dickerson and pianist Sun Ra's overlooked album, Visions (Steeple Chase Records, 1978), is one exception, but they aren't too thick on ...

Patrick Battstone and Richard Poole: Mystic Nights

Read "Mystic Nights" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Pianist Pat Battstone and vibraphonist Richard Poole's Mystic Nights follows a small but illustrious tradition duo recordings including Gary Burton and Chick Corea's Crystal Silence (ECM, 1972) and Visions (Steeplechase, 1979), from Sun Ra and Walt Dickerson.

Rob Mazurek's Starlicker: Double Demon

Read "Double Demon" reviewed by Nic Jones

Starlicker is a trio which crosses the genres with ease and a healthy disregard for categorization. Cornetist Rob Mazurek is one of those musicians more preoccupied with the future of improvised music than with its glorious past. Much the same can be said for vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz, who once again proves himself to be one of ...

Jason Adasiewicz: Sun Rooms

Read "Sun Rooms" reviewed by Nic Jones

It's clear from Sun Rooms, perhaps more than from any of his previous efforts on record, that Jason Adasiewicz is offering something pretty personal.
