Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

A cinque anni di distanza da Quercus, il primo album (che era stato però registrato nel 2006) del trio tutto inglese formato dalla cantante June Tabor insieme al pianista Huw Warren e al sassofonista Iain Ballamy, arriva ora questo secondo lavoro, Nightfall, in cui il trio ha preso ufficialmente il nome dal titolo del precedente CD. ...

Marc Copland: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Elementally essential, Marc Coplandlate career resurgence/reemergence/renaissance continues undaunted with NightFall, the pianist's first all solo full length since Alone (Pirouet, 2010).

In that span, some may have argued there's a huge head-space between Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett and some may have not, but either way Marc Copland commands the foreground.

Marc Copland: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Between 2006 and 2012 pianist Marc  Copland produced a rich discography on the Pirouet Records label. With a cast of top level sidemen--Gary Peacock, Paul Motian, John Abercrombie, Drew Gress, Billy Hart...you get the idea--he shaped up his distinctive sound and and lifted his profile into the stars. The year 2012 saw Copland's last Pirouet release, ...

Quercus: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by John Kelman

It may have taken seven years for the innovative British trio featuring singer June Tabor, saxophonist Iain Ballamy and pianist Huw Warren to find a label and release their first album together, but they sure landed on their feet. Not only was the trio's 2013 debut, Quercus, released on the renowned ECM imprint; it was also ...

Sigurdur Flosason and Kjeld Lauritsen: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Chris Mosey

Icelandic saxophonist Sigurdur Flosason gets a pretty unique sound out of his instrument. His silky, rhapsodic style of playing harks back to Johnny Hodges but with more bite. There are only the very faintest echoes of Charlie Parker and hardly any of John Coltrane.

Yet Flosason is both inventive and soulful. This is ...

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Nightfall is the second recording of Israeli, Toronto-based, pianist Noam Lemish and veteran Bay Area drummer and educator George Marsh (after Yes And, 2008). The set of original compositions and improvisations feature the breadth of their musical universes.

Jimmy Haslip: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Electric bassist Jimmy Haslip hasn't had a prolific solo career, Nightfall being his third release in eighteen years, since his debut, Arc (GRP, 1993). Haslip's energy has mainly been devoted to the Yellowjackets, the band he co-founded with pianist/keyboardist Russell Ferrante thirty years ago--a milestone celebrated with the release of Timeline (Mack Avenue Records, 2011), which ...

Charlie Haden/John Taylor: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by John Kelman

Bassist Charlie Haden is in the enviable position of being able to play with pretty much anyone he wants. From his own Quartet West to duet recordings with Kenny Barron, Egberto Gismonti, and Pat Metheny to collaborations with Paul Bley, Joe Henderson, and Paul Motian, his spare yet deeply emotional approach has also made him a ...
