Alan Pasqua: Keys That Unlock Many Doors

Read "Alan Pasqua: Keys That Unlock Many Doors" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Recently, and just a few days before Thanksgiving (2019), I was thankful for the opportunity to have two separate conversations with renown pianist Alan Pasqua. As generous with his time and candid commentary as he is talented as a musician and composer, both conversations crashed the one-hour mark. For you non mathematicians, that is over two ...

Festival International de Jazz de Montréal Various Venues Montréal, Canada June 27 -July 1, 2019 Forty years. Not a lifetime, perhaps, but a remarkably long time for any festival to not only continue to exist but, despite increasing challenges, to thrive. An even greater achievement when it's the Festival International de ...

Allan Holdsworth: Live in Japan 1984

Read "Live in Japan 1984" reviewed by John Kelman

The loss of Allan Holdsworth in the spring of 2017 remains the passing of one of the most distinctive and innovative guitarists of the past half century. Born in the U.K in 1946, but moving to the U.S.A. in the early '80s, most who are familiar with Holdsworth's work also know how vastly influential he became, ...

Dwiki Dharmawan: Rumah Batu

Read "Rumah Batu" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Dwiki Dharmawan's international debut, So Far So Close (MoonJune Records) (2016), pitted the Indonesian pianist with Jimmy Haslip, Chad Wackerman and Indonesian six-string maestros Thopati and Dewa Budjana in a mostly conventional jazz-fusion setting. On Pasar Klewer (2017) Dharmawan gave vent to his incredibly broad compositional palette, with a genre-bending mash-up featuring Jerry Goodman, Mark Wingfield, ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit. Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

Jane Getter Premonition: ON Tour

Read "ON Tour" reviewed by John Kelman

With the release of ON (Madfish/Snapper, 2015)--the debut album with her newly minted Premonition band--guitarist Jane Getter completed her move from the funk/fusion guitar workouts of her first two albums (1997's Jane and 2005's See Jane Run) towards a more progressive leaning which began with Three (Alternity, 2012). It's a move that the New York-based Getter ...

Tohpati Ethnomission: Mata Hati

Read "Mata Hati" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Although it's been nearly seven years since Tohpati Ethnomission's Save The Planet (2010), Indonesian guitarist Tohpati has hardly been idle in that time, with several notable releases to his credit on Moonjune Records. Thanks to Leonardo Pavkovic's New York label, Riot (2012), Faces (2017)--both under the moniker Tohpati Bertiga--The Sixth Story (2013), the swansong of the ...

ON

Read "ON" reviewed by John Kelman

While it's true that, in the rock world, there are relatively few female guitarists, especially those leaning towards the heavier and more progressive side of the equation, that doesn't mean that those intrepid enough to enter what has traditionally been a man's world should be assessed on anything but their own merits. Good guitarists are good ...

Dwiki Dharmawan: So Far So Close

Read "So Far So Close" reviewed by Dave Wayne

With the release of So Far So Close by keyboardist Dwiki Dharmawan, MoonJune Records continues their inconceivably fruitful collaboration with the cream of Indonesia's jazz crop. The first non-guitarist to be featured as a leader on the label, Dharmawan nevertheless drafts countrymen (and label mates) Tohpati and Dewa Budjana to provide 6-stringed excitement, while US-based superstars ...
