Jim Black, Mario Santos, William Parker, Dave Sewelson and More

Read "Jim Black, Mario Santos, William Parker, Dave Sewelson and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Is it too early to choose a “best-of" for 2020. I know it's only January, but drummer Jim Black has released an absolute killer of an album with pianist Elias Stemeseder and bassist Thomas Morgan that is an outstanding piece of work. Reckon came out on the Intakt label from Switzerland in January, so be on ...

Steve Lehman Trio, Craig Taborn: The People I Love

Read "The People I Love" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Il timbro asprigno, acidulo, e l'incedere di preferenza incalzante, spigoloso, dell'alto di Steve Lehman (i cui principali modelli, dichiarati, sono com'è noto Jackie McLean e Anthony Braxton) attraversa pressoché a senso unico questo nuovo lavoro del quarantunenne sassofonista newyorchese, determinandone climi e disegno complessivo, il tutto confezionato con la complicità del suo trio abituale (nonché ormai ...

Steve Lehman Trio + Craig Taborn: The People I Love

Read "The People I Love" reviewed by John Sharpe

On The People I Love, alto saxophonist Steve Lehman, Janus-like looks back, while simultaneously looking forward. He recruits celebrated pianist Craig Taborn to bolster his longstanding trio of bassist Matt Brewer and drummer Damion Reid. It was once said that Taborn was fated to play better on other people's records than his own. Happily that is ...

Tim Stine Quartet: Knots

Read "Knots" reviewed by Mark Corroto

This episode finds Grdina opening things up with music from two very recent recordings: Skin and Bones (with Matthew Shipp and Mark Helias) and Cooper's ...
