Jamie Saft: Solo a Genova

Read "Solo a Genova" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Jamie Saft's Solo A Genova is a revelation. It is, in an extensive discography, his only alone-in-the-piano-chair outing. Saft has made a wide-ranging mark in collaborations with Slobber Pup, Metallic Taste of Blood, The Spanish Donkey and Berserk! These group names don't say it all, but do probably say something (Brash? Unconventional? Loud?) about the ...

Gaudi: Magnetic

Read "Magnetic" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Per the press release, London-based composer, keyboardist and electronics ace, Gaudi's “initial idea for this the project was to compose an album of entirely new music using sound from the RareNoise catalog as his orchestra of musicians." Another point of interest noted in the press sheet is that the album does not contain any remixes. Gaudi ...

Jamie Saft: Loneliness Road

Read "Loneliness Road" reviewed by Doug Collette

Much of Iggy Pop's early notoriety in his days with the Stooges was predicated on shock value. These days his durability and longevity as an artist render his continued presence only slightly less startling: the seminal punk-rocker is hitting his seventieth decade, a milestone few might've forecast for him around the time of Raw Power (Columbia, ...

Philipp Gerschlauer & David Fiuczynski: Mikrojazz!: Neue Expressionistische Musik

Read "Mikrojazz!: Neue Expressionistische Musik" reviewed by Doug Collette

Any musiclover who enjoys the sensation of immersion in a maelstrom of sound will no doubt relish Mikrojazz, especially those familiar with the work of guitarist Dave Fiuczynski. But even listeners who fear the abstract somewhat should find much to savor here because this five-piece band, including 'The Fuze" and co-led with Philipp Gershlauer, moves in ...

Philipp Gerschlauer/David Fiuczynski: Mikrojazz!: Neue Expressionistische Musik

Read "Mikrojazz!: Neue Expressionistische Musik" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

If you've followed guitarist David Fiuczynski's work in recent years, then you should already know that he's continually intensifying his search for what exists in the spaces between the spaces. While Fuze has always registered as something of a non-conformist, he's now completely shed a layer of skin and left conventional Western musical tuning behind, evolving ...

The Three Sounds: Groovin' Hard: Live at the Penthouse 1964-1968

Read "Groovin' Hard: Live at the Penthouse 1964-1968" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

In the five years spanning 1958 to '62, not only a time of great consolidation and experimentation in jazz but a glorious age for the label, who would you guess was Blue Note Records' best-selling act? Thanks to their nine albums and nearly two dozen more jukebox singles, it was The Three Sounds.

Led ...

Cuong Vu: Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs

Read "Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Having recently immersed myself in Miles Davis' In a Silent Way (Columbia, 1969) and Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1969), the journey to the music on trumpeter Cuong Vu's Ballet (The Music of Michael Gibbs) is a necessarily short one. Davis had been working up to his “Freedom Principle" throughout his recordings with is second great quintet, featuring ...

Bill Brovold, Jamie Saft: Serenity Knolls

Read "Serenity Knolls" reviewed by Andrea Murgia

Noto ai più come fenomenale organista e pianista della scena newyorchese più sperimentale nei progetti di John Zorn e Joe Morris, Jamie Saft è in realtà anche un chitarrista (e slidista) che non ti aspetti. Cresciuto a pane, Bob Dylan e Paul Bley, Saft non è nuovo a puntate lontano dagli ottantotto tasti, basti pensare a ...

The Three Sounds: Groovin' Hard: Live At The Penthouse 1964-1968

Read "Groovin' Hard: Live At The Penthouse 1964-1968" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Nell'alveo turbolento della musica afroamericana, scorre sottotraccia da più di mezzo secolo la corrente rapida e ridente del soul-jazz--che chiamiamo così solo per comodità -, di cui The Three Sounds sono stati alfieri indefessi per almeno tre lustri, vantando successi popolari da far invidia a colleghi ben più dotati nella sostanza musicale.

Free Nelson Mandoomjazz: The Organ Grinder

Read "The Organ Grinder" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Search as far and wide as you like but you won't find any one band that sounds like Edinburgh, Scotland's Free Nelson Mandoomjazz. You CAN find about eight, though: Their sprawling, monstrous “doomjazz" combines harmonic and rhythmic streams from various free jazz and heavy metal schools, including and especially Black Sabbath, Albert Ayler, Electric Wizard, Sonny ...
