Bobby Bradford/Hafez Modirzadeh/Mark Dresser/Alex Cline: Live At The Open Gate

Read "Live At The Open Gate" reviewed by John Sharpe

Veteran cornetist Bobby Bradford's penchant for conversational give and take in tandem with another horn is much in evidence on this 2013 live date from The Center for the Arts in Los Angeles. And in alto saxophonist Hafez Modirzadeh, a Professor of Creative/World Music at San Francisco State University, he has found a foil who at ...

Live At The Open Gate by the quartet of Bobby Bradford, Hafez Modirzadeh, Mark Dresser, and Alex Cline shouts “West Coast" from the drop of the stylus on this, a limited edition (of 500) LP. It's not because the session is from Center for the Arts in Los Angeles 2013, it's because the inspiration here emanates ...

Bobby Bradford, Frode Gjerstad Quartet: The Delaware River

Read "The Delaware River" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Sono più di trent'anni che le strade di Bobby Bradford e Frode Gjerstad si incrociano continuamente, dall'esordio nei Details di John Stevens per arrivare alla manciata di ottimi CD incisi in trio o in quartetto. Risulta così del tutto normale l'alto grado di intesa che si percepisce tra i due lungo i quaranta minuti scarsi di ...

Keefe Jackson/Josh Berman/Jon Rune Strøm/Tollef Østvang: Southern Sun

Read "Southern Sun" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Americans have discovered Norwegian jazz artists through several sources. Manfred Eicher's ECM label has produced music by the now famous artists: Arild Andersen, Jan Garbarek, Tord Gustavsen, Terje Rypdal, Trygve Seim and Nils Petter Molvaer. Their success bled into the modern sounds of Bugge Wesseltoft, Per Zanussi, Håvard Wiik, and Hakon Kornstad. Perhaps the closest connection ...

Noah Preminger: Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar

Read "Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar" reviewed by Dave Wayne

In a decidedly bold move, young tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger's first self-released album, Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar, consists of two 30-minute-plus tracks; both interpretations of tunes by bluesman Bukka White. The result? A white-knuckle modern jazz thrill ride and possibly the fastest hour you'll spend in front of the stereo this year. Listening to ...

Bobby Bradford & John Carter Quintet: No U Turn: Live In Pasadena, 1975

Read "No U Turn: Live In Pasadena, 1975" reviewed by Mark Corroto

History, it is said, is written by the victors. With jazz history, the story is too often written by New Yorkers, or at least those east of the Mississippi. Listeners with inquisitive minds are required to dig deeper, into record bins and into interviews with musicians to learn about players that did not make New York ...
