Assif Tsahar: In Between the Tumbling a Stillness

Read "In Between the Tumbling a Stillness" reviewed by Mark Corroto

As the saying goes, In Between The Tumbling A Stillness, recorded in 2015 in Tel Aviv, “comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb." Saxophonist Assif Tsahar, who sticks to tenor throughout, opens “In Between" like a lion, if that lion were Albert Ayler. The 35-minute piece draws from the fire music of ...

Jeff Cosgrove/Matthew Shipp/William Parker: Near Disaster

Read "Near Disaster" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Is there such a phenomenon as free will? Most of us would like to think so. But consider for a moment, that every thought, decision, and action you make is a product of your DNA and the sum total of all your experiences. Sure, you make choices, but do you really have self-rule to over that ...

Dave Rempis / Brandon Lopez / Ryan Packard: The Early Bird Gets

Read "The Early Bird Gets" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The trio of saxophonist Dave Rempis, bassist Brandon Lopez, and drummer Ryan Packard have released their debut recording The Early Bird Gets without devising a name for the trio. Packard, like his fellow Chicagoan Tim Daisy, is a percussionist, composer, and sound artist. He is a member of Rempis' Chicago-based Gunwale, along with Albert Wildeman. With ...

Read "Mark Corroto's Top Ten (Ok Fifteen) of 2018" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Another trip around the sun. In the AllAboutJazz universe, the stars were especially bright this year. Which is a good thing, unless you are like me, trying to pare down a huge list of favorites to just ten. At that task, I've failed once again. So here are my 15 favorite recordings of 2018 in no ...

Mat Maneri / Matthew Shipp: Conference Of The Mat/ts

Read "Conference Of The Mat/ts" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There have been 7,128 days that have passed since Mat Maneri and Matthew Shipp have recorded a duo together, but who's counting? I guess we are. The Conference Of The Mat/ts session from November of 2017 may have followed Gravitational Systems (Hatology, 2000) by 19 years, 6 months and 4 days, but the pair have been ...

Ivo Perelman: Strings 1

Read "Strings 1" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Strings 1 and Strings 2 are concurrent releases--the first of seven themed albums--that also could have been subtitled “The Art of Improvisation," hearkening back to tenor sax titan Ivo Perelman's 6-volume 2016 releases, featuring longtime collaborator, cellist Mat Maneri and others. Hence, the cellist appears on both of these new Chamber-like groupings as Strings 2 also ...

Ivo Perelman: Strings 1

Read "Strings 1" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Try to keep up sports fans, Ivo Perelman has switched directions once again. It's not that he has quit music to become a soccer star. The tenor saxophonist has more recently taken a dive into string quartets, recording a dozen or so sessions with bowing, plucking, and pizzicato-minded musicians. Strings 1 is the introduction. If this ...

Jemeel Moondoc Quartet: The Astral Revelations

Read "The Astral Revelations" reviewed by John Sharpe

On The Astral Revelations alto saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc breathes new vitality into the legacy of the loft jazz era where he first made his name. It's a reputation most forcefully burnished in retrospect by the sumptuous box set Muntu Recordings (No Business, 2010), which showcases Moondoc alongside such future luminaries as bassist William Parker and the ...

Read "Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival 2018" reviewed by John Sharpe

Adventurous programming embraced a range of styles which taken together gave a well-rounded definition of what ...
