Ross Hammond - Oliver Lake - Mike Pride: Our Place On The Wheel

Read "Our Place On The Wheel" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Let's make the blues great again. Like a certain political slogan from the 2016 election, the blues, like America, has always been great. Guitarist Ross Hammond's blues are also analogous to the American experience, with his diverse and heterogeneous perspective. His trio recording Our Place On The Wheel reflects this variegated approach. The 'great' part is ...

Chris Welcome: Beyond All Things

Read "Beyond All Things" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Saxophonist Stephen Gauci has begun to document some of the weekly concerts he curates at the Bushwick Public House in Brooklyn, New York. Although brief, this session of a single, 29-minute track packs a satisfying punch to the solar plexus. Led by guitarist Chris Welcome (of the Lisa Mezzacappa Trio, David McDonnell Group and Weasel Walter), ...

Jason Stein's Locksmith Isidore: After Caroline

Read "After Caroline" reviewed by Mark Corroto

By 2018 he doesn't have to do it. Do what? Prove himself, and maybe also demonstrate the bass clarinet worthy of leading an ensemble. Jason Stein has the bona fides these days, proof being his much admired quartet and trio Locksmith Isidore. His trio was the opening act for his sister, comedian Amy Schumer's 10,000-seat arena ...

James Brandon Lewis & Chad Taylor Launch 2018 Season In Beacon, NY

James Brandon Lewis & Chad Taylor Launch 2018 Season In Beacon, NY

“James Brandon Lewis, a jazz saxophonist in his 30s, raw-toned but measured, doesn't sound steeped in current jazz-academy values and isn't really coming from a free-improvising perspective. There's an independence about him.” —The New York Times “With an insatiable appetite for music on the fringe, drummer Chad Taylor has been an active participant in the creative ...

Whit Dickey/Kirk Knuffke: Fierce Silence

Read "Fierce Silence" reviewed by John Sharpe

Ware and Matthew Shipp alumnus Whit Dickey isn't even his first hook up ...

Joe Morris: Shock Axis

Read "Shock Axis" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I am applying for a NEA grant to test my theory that you can judge an album by it's cover. For instance, The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St (RSR, 1972) and The Clash's London Calling (CBS, 1979) are two albums where you just knew what to expect by gazing at the covers. In the jazz ...
