David S. Ware Quartet: Théâtre Garonne, 2008

Read "Théâtre Garonne, 2008" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In 2008, when this live concert was recorded, saxophonist David S. Ware was ill, but concert goers would have no idea of this fact. He has been suffering, since 1999 from kidney failure and eventually had a kidney transplant in 2009. Ware and the latest configuration of his quartet traveled to Toulouse, France, just a few ...

Whit Dickey/Kirk Knuffke: Drone Dream

Read "Drone Dream" reviewed by John Sharpe

Duets with drummers form the bedrock of cornetist Kirk Knuffke's whole musical experience, ever since jamming with a friend in high school. Consequently, Drone Dream constitutes the third such twosome to appear in his discography. And he obviously finds drummer Whit Dickey--still best known for his tenure with fiery saxophonist David S. Ware and adventurous pianist ...

Whit Dickey/Tao Quartets: Peace Planet & Box of Light

Read "Peace Planet & Box of Light" reviewed by Don Phipps

Shimmering contrasts and flights of fancy await the listener of these fine sets of free playing put together by primary composer and drummer extraordinaire Whit Dickey. Available as a double album, Dickey's Tao Quartets' Peace Planet & Box of Light is really two separate albums. One, (Peace Planet ), features a quartet of Dickey, Matthew Shipp ...

Matthew Shipp Announces Presidential Campaign

Read "Matthew Shipp Announces Presidential Campaign" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I like to think about Matthew Shipp's music in the same light as that of Eric Dolphy and Charlie Parker. If both artists, Bird and Dolphy, had the level of support from critics and listeners that they currently command while they were still alive, the pair would have been wealthy. Okay, that plus honest record companies ...

Cooper-Moore: Catharsis and Creation in Community Spirit

Read "Cooper-Moore: Catharsis and Creation in Community Spirit" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

It's tempting to think of a life in music as a linear story with a beginning, middle and end, because that's the way life is: we are born, we live, and then we die. In this narrative, one could assume there will be highs and lows and masterpieces might emerge out of a misty fog of ...

James Brandon Lewis: An Unruly Manifesto

Read "An Unruly Manifesto" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The revolution will not be televised. Those words by Gil Scott-Heron from 1970 are more relevant to today's jazz revolution than any time since the mid-1990s, when conservatively-dressed youngsters mimicked the post-bop of the 1960s and were promoted as liberators. More recently, the touted saviors rehash a quasi-spiritual fusion that stands in for à la mode ...

Mat Maneri / Matthew Shipp: Conference Of The Mat/ts

Read "Conference Of The Mat/ts" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There have been 7,128 days that have passed since Mat Maneri and Matthew Shipp have recorded a duo together, but who's counting? I guess we are. The Conference Of The Mat/ts session from November of 2017 may have followed Gravitational Systems (Hatology, 2000) by 19 years, 6 months and 4 days, but the pair have been ...
