Jean Toussaint: Live At The Jazz Cafe 091218

Read "Live At The Jazz Cafe 091218" reviewed by Chris May

Most times, the transatlantic flow of jazz musicians is from east to west. Less frequently, as with Jean Toussaint's relocation from New York to London, it is contrariwise. Hot from four years as a member of Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers's Jazz Messengers, Toussaint arrived in Britain in 1987. He soon established himself as a ...

David Lyttle: Leading Jazz Into The Hinterlands

Read "David Lyttle: Leading Jazz Into The Hinterlands" reviewed by Ian Patterson

There was a time when jazz groups would zig-zag all over the country, by train, in customized buses or in cars, playing date after date in towns big and small. Tours that kept a band on the road for months at a time were once the norm for many jazz outfits--the bread and butter of countless ...

Onyx Brass: Onyx Noir - Jazz Works For Brass Quintet

Read "Onyx Noir - Jazz Works For Brass Quintet" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Jazz has often been described as America's classical music, so hearing a British classical group tackling jazz is bound to intrigue. Even more so when it's a brass quintet and we recognise the key role of brass bands in the birth of jazz.

Onyx Brass trombonist Amos Miller was at the Banff International Jazz ...

Tim Garland: Weather Walker

Read "Weather Walker" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Taking his inspiration from the scenic magic of England's Lake District, saxophonist and composer Tim Garland has translated the natural beauty of the landscape into an equally breathtaking suite. From the opening track “Rugged Land," it's clear that this is no ordinary chamber jazz. The dynamics are often forcefully percussive, but impressively so, considering the ensemble ...

Greg Cordez: Last Things Last

Read "Last Things Last" reviewed by Roger Farbey

"Chekov's Gun" opens this recording with a laid-back yet electrifying atmosphere hinting vaguely of a Soft Machine influence. “Cherry V Des Moines" has a rock-based feel but the overlaid horn ensemble sections imbue it with a jazz-inflected impetus as does Michael Blake's sinewy tenor solo. “Figlock" is dominated by Steve Cardenas's chiming electric guitar work and ...
