Philipp Gropper's Philm: Consequences

Read "Consequences" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

According to the press release for this CD, saxophonist and bandleader Philipp Gropper's concerns in this music are the place of the individual in society and the responsibilities Western societies bear in their dealings with the rest of the world.

John Escreet: Consequences

Read "Consequences" reviewed by Elliott Simon

It is uplifting when a release reveals that there is still compositional fire in the heads, hearts and instruments of the children of freedom and grandchildren of bop.

Raphe Malik: ConSequences

Read "ConSequences" reviewed by John Sharpe

From the first notes from William Parker’s gut churning bass you know you are in for a treat. Raphe Malik assembled an all star band for the 1997 Fire In The Valley Festival and we are fortunate it was well-recorded for posterity. The whole disc constitutes a superb manifesto of state of the art jazz at ...
