Oregon: Lantern

Read "Lantern" reviewed by John Kelman

Despite having to replace percussionists a couple of times since its inception in 1970, Oregon's otherwise consistent lineup of reed/woodwind multi-instrumentalist Paul McCandless, guitarist/pianist/primary composer Ralph Towner and double bassist Glen Moore remained unchanged for forty-five years--surely some kind of record in the jazz world. And with current drummer/percussionist Mark Walker joining the group for 1997's ...

Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist

Read "Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

His instruments of choice are the classical guitar, which when he started, in the '60s, was played almost exclusively by guitarists related to Brazilian music like Charlie Byrd, Laurindo Almeida and Bola Sete, and the 12-string guitar, very common in the folk ...

Ralph Towner: un americano a Roma

Read "Ralph Towner: un americano a Roma" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Ralph Towner rappresenta sicuramente una figura atipica nel vasto mondo della chitarra jazz. In primo luogo per gli strumenti usati: la chitarra classica, che negli anni '60 in ambito jazzistico era utilizzata solamente da musicisti legati alla musica brasiliana come Charlie Byrd, Laurindo Almeida e Bola Sete, e la chitarra 12-corde, che proveniva dal mondo folk ...

Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In

Read "Paul Winter Sextet: Count Me In" reviewed by Duncan Heining

The Paul Winter Sextet might just be one of the best early sixties groups you never heard. Their story, and that of their leader and altoist Paul Winter's, is certainly one of the most remarkable in jazz. Had some director made a film of the Sextet's short life, jazz buffs would have scoffed at the conceit. ...

Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess

Read "Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess" reviewed by John Kelman

It may look good on paper, but you can never really know how “super group" collaborations are going to work out until they actually get together and do something. In the case of the power trio named after its members--bassist/stick player Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Stick Men), drummer/guitarist Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, The Aristocrats, ...

Read "John Abercrombie on ECM - Part 1: Through the '80s" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Now that the The First Quartet set of recordings by guitarist/composer John Abercrombie from 1979-1981 has been released, it is as good a time as any to explore Abercrombie's career on ECM as a leader/co-leader, plus some his work as a sideman.
