Looking over the vast quantity of fine music released in 2017, it is reassuring to know that even in these troubled times, the spirit of creativity and endurance that jazz has always embodied continues to hold strong, especially as the music continually finds new forms of expression that move beyond stylistic boundaries. It was a particularly ...

Craig Taborn: Daylight Ghosts

Read "Daylight Ghosts" reviewed by Troy Dostert

In addition to his eighty-plus appearances as a sideman, pianist Craig Taborn has during the last six years found a happy home for his own music on the ECM label, where he's been able to establish a formidable body of work in just a few recordings.

Read "2016: An Ivo Perelman Marathon" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The original marathoner, Pheidippides in 490 BC, is believed to have run from Marathon, where a battle was being fought, to Athens to inform an assembly that the Persians had been defeated. It certainly was quite the achievement, taking into account the sorry state of footwear at the time and lack of prepackaged gels and energy ...

Rosa Brunello Y Los Fermentos: Upright Tales

Read "Upright Tales" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

La tradizione del contrabbassista-leader è una consuetudine che nel jazz ha dato frutti sapidi. Da Charles Mingus a Charlie Haden e Dave Holland, fino ai più recenti Chris Lightcap, Ben Allison e Michael Formanek, ma senza dimenticare la grande forza creativa di William Parker, il contrabbassista-leader ha sempre dato un'impronta forte all'impostazione di gruppi originali. Forse ...

Read "Beginning of a Memory" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Un anno dopo la morte della moglie per leucemia, il batterista Matt Wilson ha riunito i membri dei suoi tre gruppi, The Matt Wilson Quartet, Arts & Crafts e Christmas Tree-O, per una commemorazione che prende spunto dai funerali d'inizio secolo a New Orleans. Alcuni brani incisi con le sue formazioni vengono riproposti in un clima ...

Matt Wilson’s Big Happy Family: Beginning of A Memory

Read "Beginning of A Memory" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's easy to imagine the phone calls, drummer Matt Wilson made, using his best imitation of Elwood from the 1980 Blues Brothers movie, “We're putting the band back together, we're on a mission from God." And like that, current members and alumni of the drummer's bands: the Matt Wilson Quartet, Arts & Crafts, and Christmas Tree-O ...
