Franco Ambrosetti Quintet: Long Waves

Read "Long Waves" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Veteran Swiss jazz trumpeter/flugelhornist/composer Franco Ambrosetti leads what amounts to a blowing session: mostly his originals, plus a couple of standards. But what a band it is. In bebop's heyday the group likely would have been billed as “All Stars." Guitarist John Scofield, pianist Uri Caine, bassist Scott Colley and drummer Jack DeJohnette have an illustrious ...

Franco Ambrosetti: Long Waves

Read "Long Waves" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trumpeter Franco Ambrosetti is a master of both glow and go aesthetics. With a warm and burnished tone, lines giving off circumfluent suggestions in their whorling beauty, an eye on motion and expansion, and a strong sense of swing, he's content to take the fast lane or simply take his time. And with more than 50 ...

Ola Onabule: Point Less

Read "Point Less" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

British-Nigerian singer/songwriter Ola Onabulé has a rich baritone voice and a commanding presence. He's a soul singer above all, but also draws on pop, world music and jazz. Despite its title, opener “Throwaway Notion" is a catchy tune with a Pan-African groove, and very dark lyrics about the current race to the bottom in politics all ...

Genre defying UK ensemble Led Bib to release 'It's Morning' on RareNoise Records - due out September 27, 2019

From the Homeric invocation of ethereal opener “Atom Story,” it becomes stunningly clear that It's Morning, the latest album from the uncategorizable UK ensemble Led Bib, is meant to take the listener on a journey. The wide-ranging and evocative set is also a testament to the distance the band has travelled on its own evolutionary path. ...

Randy Brecker: Rocks

Read "Rocks" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

The easiest answer isn't always the best answer, but sometimes it is. So it's both easy and proper to point out that trumpet and flugelhorn master, composer, and bandleader Randy Brecker was kind enough to simultaneously review his release with the NDR Bigband, the Hamburg Radio Jazz Orchestra, when he titled it Rocks.

Assembled ...

Liebman, Rudolph & Drake: Chi

Read "Chi" reviewed by John Ephland

Chi is another trio outing with saxophonist Dave Liebman and percussionist Adam Rudolph, the third leg on this stool being drummer Hamid Drake. It is a kind of follow-up to 2018's alternately serene and propulsive The Unknowable (RareNoise), on which Liebman and Rudolph were joined by percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani. Unlike The Unknowable, Chi was recorded in ...

Jamie Saft: You Don't Know The Life

Read "You Don't Know The Life" reviewed by Doug Collette

We should all be as comfortable in our own skin as Jamie Saft. Zen-like tranquility emanates from his music no matter the form of his projects: the ambient ensemble Plymouth, solo piano, vocals by Iggy Pop on Loneliness Road (RareNoise, 2017), or a small combo like his quartet. This multi- instrumentalist/composer is so secure in his ...

Eraldo Bernocchi: Like A Fire That Consumes All Before It

Read "Like A Fire That Consumes All Before It" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Italian multi-instrumentalist and composer Eraldo Bernocchi created this music as the soundtrack to a documentary film on the American visual artist Cy Twombly entitled Cy Dear. Bernocchi was given complete freedom, and quickly found that his ideas naturally reflected those of the film's creators. More than that, he found himself becoming part of the story, bringing ...
