Eric Dolphy: Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions

Read "Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Although his iconic Out to Lunch! (Blue Note, 1964) is one of a handful of undisputed avant-garde jazz masterpieces, Eric Dolphy's stature has never quite risen fully to the level of the jazz titans. Some of this is probably due to his untimely death at age 36, just as he was reaching new creative peaks; and ...

Eric Dolphy: Musical Prophet:The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions

Read "Musical Prophet:The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Eric Dolphy's lone Blue Note album, 1964's Out To Lunch! is rightly regarded as a classic but the two records he made for the short-lived Douglas label just before that, Conversations (1963) and Iron Man (1963), have been largely forgotten, due in part to being out-of-print for many years. Now the Resonance label has done something ...

Toxic: Mat Walerian/Matthew Shipp/William Parker: This Is Beautiful Because We Are Beautiful People

Read "This Is Beautiful Because We Are Beautiful People" reviewed by Matthew Aquiline

Polish multi-instrumentalist Mat Walerian is on the verge of reserving his seat in the pantheon of groundbreaking hornmen who recorded for the late Bernard Stollman's storied ESP-Disk' label. Not as frenetic as Frank Wright, nor as strident as Sonny Simmons, Walerian instead boasts a singular approach that binds Eastern influence and blues sensibility with fluent, legato ...
