The beauty of personal expression may be the greatest and most effective balm to soothe our hearts in troubled times. That's the message that pianist Laszlo Gardony gifts us with Serious Play.

Dan Tepfer Trio: Eleven Cages

Read "Eleven Cages" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Pianist Dan Tepfer makes an excellent point here, reminding us that the concept of freedom is actually built on architectural stability. With Eleven Cages Tepfer has his Thomas Merton moment, likening the framework of each song to the walls of his newfound freedom. He recognizes and emphasizes the fact that different structures are housings for exploration ...

Benny Green: Live in Santa Cruz

Read "Live in Santa Cruz" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Di sicuro Benny Green è un pianista dalle eccellenti doti. Vulcanico, inventivo, tecnicamente impeccabile, in Live in Santa Cruz Green declina in maniera eccelsa il linguaggio tradizionale del jazz. Elaborate con gusto e senso della melodia, le nove tracce del disco dichiarano la loro appartenenza al mondo hard bop. Nel fraseggiare con scioltezza e decisione insieme, ...

Diego Barber: One Minute Later

Read "One Minute Later" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Diego Barber's One Minute Later is something of a dance between certainty and dubiety, grounded in the guitarist-composer's convictions that the truth behind an improviser's feelings and musical fate relate directly to that which Federico García Lorca described in Poeta en Nueva York as a minute of contrition that comes with--or follows-- complete liberation. It's a ...

440 Keys: A Batch of Piano Delights

Read "440 Keys: A Batch of Piano Delights" reviewed by Geno Thackara

It's always a pleasure to be reminded what a range of sounds just one instrument can produce. The same 88 keys can be used in endlessly different ways in different inventive hands, and this batch of recordings has several masterful performers taking that starting point toward quite eclectic ends.

Carlos Franzetti: Argentum

Read "Argentum" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Gran bel musicista l'ormai sessantanovenne argentino di Buenos Aires Carlos Franzetti, che nella sua lunga e fortunata carriera in larga parte spesa negli Stati Uniti ha svariato dal jazz alla musica da camera, da quella sinfonica a quella per il cinema, senza nulla perdere di quella tradizione che rende la musica sudamericana al tempo stesso universale ...

Benny Green: Happiness!

Read "Happiness!" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Happiness is listening to Benny Green. He brings joie de vivre to the piano keys with his Herculean chops, in-the-pocket soulfulness, and tight arrangements, all of which can be heard in spades on this live date.

The scene for this spirited recording was the Kuumbwa Jazz Center--a gem of a venue in California ...
