André Carvalho: The Garden Of Earthly Delights

Read "The Garden Of Earthly Delights" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

When eyeing the triptych oil painting The Garden of Earthly Delights, by Renaissance painter Hieronymous Bosch, the observer often drifts off and zooms in on a very specific segment of the painting. Defined by opposing themes and motifs, the eye wanders from left to right, from Adam and Eve in peaceful nature, over birds and buildings ...

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Lucas Pino is a New York-based tenor saxophonist who leads the No Net Nonet, a band that fits snugly into the jazz tradition but displays its own style of creativity. Despite what this CD's title suggests, this group's music is full of emotion and warmth.

That is evident from the outset with “Antiquity," written ...

André Carvalho: The Garden Of Earthly Delights

Read "The Garden Of Earthly Delights" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

This third album from Portuguese bassist André Carvalho is a study in contrasts. Inspired by the work of artist Hieronymus Bosch—his style in general and, of course, the titular painting—Carvalho set about composing a long-form work reflecting the range and balance of character(s) endemic to the mysterious Dutch painter's creations. This stunning suite is the result. ...

Nick Grinder: Farallon

Read "Farallon" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

The striking thing about this CD by Bay Area trombonist Nick Grinder is how warm and soothing it sounds. It is not Smooth Jazz by any means, but there is a broad, melodic tone to Grinder's playing and the way he arranges the music that feels inviting and friendly. This is present even in up-tempo pieces ...

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. ...
