Saturday at the Monterey Jazz Festival

Read "Saturday at the Monterey Jazz Festival" reviewed by Dave Kaufman

Friday | Saturday | Sunday

Saturday at the Monterey Jazz Festival featured excellent performances by some of the lesser known artists, fine concerts by headliners and a great after-hour jam sessions. It was another splendid day with much great music. My day at the fest started out mid-afternoon with a fine performance by accomplished trumpeter ...

Mark Guiliana: Jersey

Read "Jersey" reviewed by Geno Thackara

With an all-encompassing style that keeps him in high demand throughout the jazz world and beyond, perhaps it's unsurprising (if unfortunate) that Mark Guiliana boasts only a handful of titles to his own name. The middle of the 2010s saw him drumming in sessions with Dave Douglas or Avishai Cohen (among others) to briefly subbing with ...

Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet: Jersey

Read "Jersey" reviewed by Troy Dostert

When it comes to the boundary-stretching spirit that has become so widespread among many of today's leading jazz musicians, drummer Mark Guiliana deserves credit for being one of the most enthusiastic embodiments of this attitude. He has a longstanding passion for electronic music, as heard especially on the releases on his own Beat Music label (2014's ...

Jason Rigby Detroit-Cleveland Trio: One

Read "One" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

The stimulating One is saxophonist Jason Rigby's third release as a leader and the most accomplished addition to Rigby's discography. The sparse trio setting and the intimate ambience allow Rigby to showcase his multifaceted compositions and his superb improvisational skills. They also demonstrate the sublime synergy among the band members as well as Rigby's command of ...

Possibilites: Get 'Em

Read "Get 'Em" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The saxophone/bass/drums grouping--at one time a rarity--seems to be undergoing a renewal of sorts. Drummer Rudy Royston offered up a fine example of the genre with Rise Of Orion (Greenleaf Music, 2016). Saxophonist JD Allen dove deep into the blues on Americana (Savant Records, 2016), and sax man Jason Rigby presented a breakout effort on the ...

Jason Rigby: Detroit-Cleveland Trio: One

Read "One" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The saxophone/bass/drums format has its challenge: the lack of a harmonic instrument to add depth and structure to the sound. Sonny Rollins put out a classic of the form: A Night At The Village Vanguard (Blue Note, 1958). But he's Sonny Rollins, and all the other saxophonist aren't. Same thing with Ornette Coleman and his two ...

Christopher Zuar Orchestra: Musings

Esordio discografico per il ventinovenne newyorchese Christopher Zuar, nato trombettista ma ormai dedito alla composizione e all'arrangiamento, che infatti pratica in questo lavoro che lo vede alla direzione di un'orchestra di diciassette elementi, che arrivano a diciannove in alcune tracce con l'ingresso di percussioni e voce.

Il lavoro รจ tutto sommato convenzionale, tipico di ...

Jason Rigby: One: Detroit-Cleveland Trio

Read "One: Detroit-Cleveland Trio" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Jason Rigby's first two releases as a leader, Translucent Space (2006) and Sage (2009), were widely acclaimed both for Rigby's sophisticated compositions and for his voice as an emerging saxophone talent. On these albums, the first with a nonet and the second with a quintet, Rigby evoked the sound of mid-to-late 60s Miles and early fusion, ...
