Jessica Radcliffe: Remembrance

Read "Remembrance" reviewed by Roger Farbey

It seems propitiously timely to be releasing an album commemorating the centenary of the end of the first world war in November 2018 but vocalist and composer Jessica Radcliffe actually began her Remembrance project back in 2014, developing it as a component of her final year at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music And Dance where she ...

Elton Dean / Paul Dunmall / Paul Rogers / Tony Bianco: Remembrance

Read "Remembrance" reviewed by John Sharpe

English saxophonist Elton Dean has inspired several memorials since his untimely demise in 2006. But there is always space for another when it is as vital as Remembrance, a two CD set from 2004 issued by the Lithuanian NoBusiness imprint. Best known for his seminal work with the jazz rock pioneers Soft Machine, Dean also amassed ...

Ketil Bjørnstad: Remembrance

Read "Remembrance" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

In a Silent Way gli ha cambiato la vita. Prima del 1969, Ketil Bjørnstad era un composto solista nella Oslo Philarmonic Orchestra. Il jazz lo fulminò col suo più eclettico protagonista. E i “modi silenti" lo accompagneranno per tutta la luminosa carriera. Il suo pianismo intimistico, soffuso, etereo e immaginifico lo avrebbero imposto alla ECM che non aspettava altro (e ...

Ketil Bjornstad: Remembrance

Read "Remembrance" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The disc is called Remembrance, but it could just as well have been tagged “Prayers" or “Hymns," or “The Search for Peace and Tranquility," words that seems a fit with the music of Norwegian pianist Ketil Bjørnstad.

Bjørnstad began his sojourn at ECM Records with Water Stories in 1993. In his eight recordings for the ...

John Patitucci Trio: Remembrance

Read "Remembrance" reviewed by Troy Collins

Grammy-winning bassist John Patitucci's trio recording Remembrance, a heartfelt ode to his heroes and mentors, is the realization of a longstanding dream. Featuring saxophonist Joe Lovano and drummer Brian Blade, this stripped-down trio originally recorded as a quartet with pianist Brad Mehldau on Patitucci's Communion (Concord, 2001).

The bassist of choice through the years for Chick Corea, Roy Haynes, Wayne Shorter and many other jazz giants, John Patitucci is noted for his daunting technique on both acoustic and electric basses.

John Patitucci Trio: Remembrance

Read "Remembrance" reviewed by Chris May

It's true what they say: you can't judge an album by looking at the cover. Contrary to the mood suggested by the title and the monochrome sleeve shot of an autumnal city park, bassist John Patitucci's Remembrance is a warm and perky affair. The album is Patitucci's salute to some departed heroes--saxophonists John Coltrane, Joe Henderson ...

This month, Krakow, Poland plays host to the world's top klezmer musicians as they take part in the city's 17th Jewish Cultural Festival. That a celebratory event of this magnitude occurs in a city that, prior to the Holocaust, was home to one of the most important Jewish cultural centers in Europe is evidence of this ...

Kenny Drew Jr. Trio: Remembrance

Read "Remembrance" reviewed by Ben Ohmart

Let’s amble back to the simple but productive days of piano jazz before every niche of playing style created a new genre, before the words genius and nuance were overused to the point of covetousness. To hear Kenny at the head of tracks like ‘Song for Manfredo’ by Lili Fest renews my roving eye back to ...
