Wadada Leo Smith: Solo: Reflections and Meditations on Monk

Read "Solo: Reflections and Meditations on Monk" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The most fitting tribute to Thelonious Monk on the 100th anniversary of his birth was not by a pianist, but by a trumpeter, and not any ordinary trumpeter. Wadada Leo Smith, like Monk, is a musician's musician. While his peers have seemingly always investigated his music, it took the listening audience (and, ahem, critics) awhile to ...

Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain

Read "Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If music was sports, then Ivo Perelman would be baseball and most other musicians football. Where football's regular season is 16 games, baseball plays 162. Likewise, most musicians release one album every year or two, but Perelman has averaged seven titles per year for the last seven years. His 2017 Leo Records output is thirteen (fourteen, ...

Toxic: Mat Walerian/Matthew Shipp/William Parker: This Is Beautiful Because We Are Beautiful People

Read "This Is Beautiful Because We Are Beautiful People" reviewed by Matthew Aquiline

Polish multi-instrumentalist Mat Walerian is on the verge of reserving his seat in the pantheon of groundbreaking hornmen who recorded for the late Bernard Stollman's storied ESP-Disk' label. Not as frenetic as Frank Wright, nor as strident as Sonny Simmons, Walerian instead boasts a singular approach that binds Eastern influence and blues sensibility with fluent, legato ...

Amina Claudine Myers

Read "Amina Claudine Myers" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

Il tratto principale della mia musica.
Il piano e la voce gospel delle origini, che suonavo da ragazza. Questo era durante il periodo del Gospel classico, in cui gruppi al femminile come Clara Ward, The Davis Sisters e le Gospel Harmonettes' andavano in radio e facevano concerti.

La qualità che desidero nei musicisti ...

Andrew Cyrille Quartet: The Declaration of Musical Independence

Read "The Declaration of Musical Independence" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Read "Live Trane: Never Before, Never After" reviewed by David Liebman

NEA Jazz Master and much celebrated saxophonist, composer, bandleader, educator and author Dave Liebman recounts the life-changing experiences of witnessing live performances by John Coltrane as told to Dave Kaufman.

I always say my epiphany was the first time I saw Coltrane in February of 1962 at Birdland. The fact that I even knew ...

Arancio, nero e nostalgia: tempo di ristampe in casa Impulse!

Read "Arancio, nero e nostalgia: tempo di ristampe in casa Impulse!" reviewed by Luca Canini

Piovono ristampe in casa Impulse!. Un diluvio benedetto a tinte arancionere che riporta sugli scaffali dei negozi classicissimi e rarità a prezzi stracciati. Non il massimo l'operazione dal punto di vista filologico: grafica discutibile, copertine originali incrociate grossolanamente, rimasterizzazione discreta ma non eccelsa, note riprodotte in miniatura e in alcuni casi praticamente illeggibili; ma il rapporto ...

Dave Burrell: Pianist Navigating the Windward Passages

Read "Dave Burrell: Pianist Navigating the Windward Passages" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

Dave Burrell is a master pianist and composer who encountered the avant-garde in the 1960s and has been following his own independent path ever since. He combines classical and jazz elements that are both “inside" and “outside" the mainstream. The title of a poem by J.V.
