Jake Leckie: The Abode

Read "The Abode" reviewed by Chris Mosey

Bassist Jake Leckie, born in Boston but currently living in Los Angeles, describes the eight songs on this, his first album, as “a meditation on migration, understanding and empathy." He says they pay tribute to the people and places that have contributed to his identity and are intended to evoke a sense of place and home--his ...

Lucas Pino: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dal 2013 il sassofonista e compositore Lucas Pino dirige il suo “No Net Nonet" esibendosi tutti i mesi allo Smalls Jazz Club di New York, senza trascurare altre scritture. L'organico è nato nel 2009, da allora ha cambiato solo un componente e la regolarità del rapporto spiega la coesione e l'equilibrio evidenziati in questo terzo album. ...

Gabriel Vicéns: Coming Back

Read "Coming Back" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The rules for releasing music have been in flux for some time, and the digital single has made its way from pop music to jazz. Puerto Rican jazz guitarist/composer Gabriel Vicéns (now a New York City resident) presents an unreleased track from the recording sessions for his second album Days (Inner Circle Music, 2015). The guitarist ...

Lucas Pino: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Lucas Pino's No Net Nonet has claimed a piece of turf within the vast, sprawling, crowded field of the jazz mainstream. Its brilliantly conceived and executed efforts resist additional stylistic distinctions. Teamwork, mutually reinforcing concerns and a spirit of adventure infuse the seven tracks of That's A Computer. The compositions and arrangements by the leader, as ...

Dave Meder: Passage

Read "Passage" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

"Philosophically, what I'm after is the lofty goal of being able to play everything," says 28-year-old pianist David Meder of his ambitions and crowd-sourced debut, Passage. Like he says, that's pretty lofty, if not downright cocky. But what is jazz, let alone any artistic endeavor, if not an equal mix of both, and the chops to ...

Peter Nelson: Ash, Dust, and the Chalkboard Cinema

Read "Ash, Dust, and the Chalkboard Cinema" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

"In sickness and in health" is a phrase that evokes thoughts of wedding vows in most minds. But in a broader sense, it can be applicable to performing artists and their relationship--marital commitment, if you will--to their instruments and work. If anybody has lived and absorbed that truth, it's trombonist Peter Nelson.

After ...

Lucas Pino's No Net Nonet: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Saxophonist Lucas Pino's adventurous New York-based No Net Nonet is on record for the third time with That's a Computer (yes, there's a story behind that but it's too lengthy to recount here), which underscores Pino's usual flair for anomalous compositions and arrangements. Except for drummer Jimmy Macbride, who came on board in 2017, every member ...

Rafal Sarnecki: Climbing Trees

Read "Climbing Trees" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Guitarist Rafal Sarnecki has put together a CD with an interesting combination of influences here. His music mixes together elements of classical chamber music and progressive jazz-rock which is played by a group with a front line of guitar, tenor sax and voice. The presence of a high, wordless female voice sometimes gives this the feel ...

James Hall: Lattice

Read "Lattice" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

James Hall uses an interesting combination of instruments you rarely hear in a jazz quintet on this CD, with his trombone and Jamie Baum's flute sharing the front line. The result, full of cool high-low harmonies, is an intriguing sound that goes in many different directions.

The lilting weave of “Shoy" showcases how well ...
