Marc Ribot Trio: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by Troy Collins

Renowned Downtown guitarist Marc Ribot has performed with everyone from famed roots producer T Bone Burnett to avant-garde legend John Zorn. Ribot's own efforts as a bandleader have been equally eclectic, ranging from the freewheeling Latin jazz excursions of Los Cubanos Postizos to the Albert Ayler-inspired no wave assault of Shrek. In 2004 Ribot formed Spiritual ...

Enrico Pieranunzi: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nella sterminata discografia di Enrico Pieranunzi, una produzione in alcuni anni forse eccessiva, Live at the Village Vanguard, registrato il 7 e 8 luglio 2010 durante un ingaggio nel famoso club newyorchese, rappresenta bene gli approdi recenti del trio del pianista. Come già in The Chant of Time del 1997, gli sono a fianco Marc Johnson e Paul Motian: con ognuno ...

Bebo Valdes & Javier Colina: Live At The Village Vanguard

Read "Live At The Village Vanguard" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The comparison between pianists Bebo Valdés and his son Chucho Valdés could be likened to the choice of the Beatles (Bebo) to the Rolling Stones (Chucho). A more likely frame of reference would be Bebo as the Cuban version of Hank Jones and Chucho that of Don Pullen.

Like Jones, Bebo started as an accompanist, ...

Bill Charlap Trio: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by Jim Santella

Recorded in September 2003, this program includes several standards, giving a sense of familiarity to its essence. Pianist Bill Charlap enjoys a mellow groove. He squeezes the melody out of the piano as if it were coming from a rose petal. Nothing stands in his way as he sends each lyrical theme on its way. With ...

Bill Charlap Trio: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by J Hunter

Bill Charlap is a tremendous player in concert. He leans into a solo like a sailor tacking into the wind during a Pacific gale; his hands can disappear into a blur, and they can touch the keys with a delicacy usually reserved for surgeons and safecrackers. Regardless of approach, the results are usually breathtaking, making Charlap's ...

Uri Caine: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by AAJ Staff

It was much easier on us jazz critics when discs used to just barely break the half-hour mark. Jazz is often dense, complex music which requires a great deal of attention to decipher, and we've got piles of the stuff to get through. Which is why, as good as it is--and it's often spectacularly good--Uri Caine's ...

With an artist as diverse and sometimes eclectic as Uri Caine, it’s worth noting first and foremost this album delivers what the title promises: a relatively straightforward jazz trio gig that should satisfy fans and new listeners.



Live At The Village Vanguard features the pianist in a nearly non-stop blowout session of mostly ...
