Tucker Antell: Grime Scene

Read "Grime Scene" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Tucker Antell knows how to make an entrance. The two-minute solo stand that opens Grime Scene finds his stentorian saxophone blowing brusque and fluid across a wide swath. It plays like a strong man's lament-cum-catharsis, but what follows on the same track is something else: a bluesy shuffle with foot tap-inducing properties. This marks the first ...

Noah Preminger: Genuinity

Read "Genuinity" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Quite often when an über-talented musician records a disc under his own name, he uses sidemen of lesser talent so as not to detract from his moment in the limelight, or because his ego won't allow him to play nice. That has never been the case with saxophonist Noah Preminger. On Genuinity, his tenth disc released ...

Another year of outstanding releases which not only unveiled new artists but also fresh material from those I've admired over many years.

The formal structure of this album recorded live at London's Pizza Express Jazz Club on September 23, 2014, centres around Olivier Messiaen's Seven modes of limited transposition, musical modes or scales that fulfil specific criteria relating to their symmetry and the repetition of their interval groups. As with George Russell's Lydian chromatic concept of tonal organization ...

Noah Preminger: Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground

Read "Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Saxophonist Noah Preminger got this backwards. His latest release, Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground should have preceded the 2015 recording Pivot: Live At The 55 Bar. Same quartet of trumpeter Jason Palmer, bassist Kim Cass, and drummer Ian Froman. Same theme, the Delta Blues. The reverse order observation is a historical one. Where ...
