Read "Microscopic Septet: Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down to Me, Jazz Passengers: Still Life with Troube, Papanosh: Chicken in a Bottle" reviewed by Vic Albani

Non credo che i puristi del caso si possano stupire di una recensione tripla che non vuole porre in contrapposizione tre lavori discografici afferenti ad una similare idea di base, bensì presentarli entro un unico pacchetto di “meraviglie contemporanee." Anche perché questi tre dischi potrebbero essere certamente acquistati ad occhi bendati quale brillante testimonianza di alcune ...

Elliott Sharp: Dialectrical

Read "Dialectrical" reviewed by John Sharpe

Dialectrical constitutes the third entry in the discography of Elliott Sharp's most jazz-focused outfit, following on from the eponymous debut Aggregat (Clean Feed, 2012), and subsequent Quintet (Clean Feed, 2013). Although perhaps best known for his idiosyncratic guitar work, Sharp here demonstrates his chops as an adept reedman, with a talented NYC crew on board. Special ...

His fourth album for John Zorn's Tzadik label Radical Jewish Culture series enriches his unique and personal art.
