Kali. Z. Fasteau: Intuit

Read "Intuit" reviewed by Mark Corroto

From her twenty plus recordings she refuses to be fixed with a descriptor. She also performs on the nai, kaval and shakuhachi flutes, is a vocalist, ...

Kali Z. Fasteau/ Kidd Jordan: Live at the Kerava Jazz Festival

Read "Live at the Kerava Jazz Festival" reviewed by John Sharpe

Multi-instrumentalism is one of the enduring legacies of the '60s New Thing and Chicago's AACM, where everything was fair game in the hunt for unfettered expressionism. Few have taken it as far as Kali Z. Fasteau, who plays a different instrument on each of the nine tracks of this live recording from Finland's 2007 Kerava Jazz ...

Read "People of the Ninth: New Orleans and the Hurricane 2005" reviewed by Budd Kopman

In the waning days of September, 2005, the entire U.S. population watched as hurricane Katrina developed into a monster storm and seemed to take aim directly for New Orleans.

Read "People of the Ninth: New Orleans and the Hurricane 2005" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Throughout his career, saxophonist/teacher Kidd Jordan has been respected and hired by peers including Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman and Ellis Marsalis, but only since the late '90s has the septuagenarian begun to garner prolific recording opportunities and jazz festival invites.

Kali Z. Fasteau: Oneness

Read "Oneness" reviewed by Kurt Gottschalk

Kali Fasteau is the keeper of a flame. While the high-octane experiments of the '60s New Thing are largely kept alive today by emulation, Fasteau holds to the era's spirit of exploration. Rather than engaging in long-winded blowing sessions, her interest lies in jazz-based journeys using different instrumental voices and cultural traditions as a vehicle. She ...

Kali Z. Fasteau: Vivid

Read "Vivid" reviewed by AAJ Staff

The double entendre in the title of Vivid applies to color as well as emotion. Multi-instrumentalist Fasteau, who's traveled the world living and performing, offers an intriguing combination of soprano saxophone and voice, among other things. Her fusion of high-energy blowing with high-flying song fits surprisingly well into this mix of performers and instruments. When Fasteau ...
