Billy Childs: Rebirth

Read "Rebirth" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's been a while since we've heard pianist Billy Childs really dig in. While he certainly hasn't been dormant, reaching tremendous artistic heights in semi-recent times with a pair of highly refined chamber jazz explorations and a much-lauded tribute to Laura Nyro, the Childs of yore--the man that would throw down the gauntlet night after night ...


University of Toronto 12TET: Rebirth

Read "Rebirth" reviewed by Jack Bowers

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more congenial curtain-raiser than Jason Stillman's animated, inflexibly swinging “Contemporary Insanity," which opens Rebirth, the debut album by the University of Toronto's snug and well-upholstered 12TET. That's admittedly a tough act to follow, and while the ensemble gives it the old college try it doesn't always live up to the ...


Tribe: Rebirth

Read "Rebirth" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

A volte ritornano. O li fanno ritornare. I Tribe nascono nel 1971, collettivo nel cuore della Detroit nera, dell'urgenza che va oltre la musica, del jazz che cambia e che scende nella giungla urbana più elettrica e estatica che mai: protagonisti il trombone di Phil Ranelin [riscoperto qualche anno fa dall'etichetta Hefty con una manciata di splendide ristampe e ...

But few have captured the essence of what the music was about. Arguably closest has been Henry Kaiser/Wadada ...


Children on the Corner: Rebirth

Read "Rebirth" reviewed by Russ Musto

In this age of acid jazz, trip hop and jam bands it's difficult for most listeners to realize just how controversial On The Corner was when it was first released more than 30 years ago, when fusion was becoming something other than nuclear and for most folk funk was merely an odor. Miles Davis had developed ...


Children On The Corner: Rebirth

Read "Rebirth" reviewed by Colin Buttimer

Miles Davis’s first electric period traced an arc from 1969 to 1975 which continues to inform the most exploratory electric jazz of the past three decades. Miles developed techniques (generic cross-pollination and studio cut and paste, to name only two) which produced seriously funky and out music and which have inspired a whole slew of innovators ...
