Dave Douglas with the Westerlies and Anwar Marshall: Little Giant Still Life

Read "Little Giant Still Life" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Per questa nuova realizzazione dell'etichetta indipendente Greenleaf da lui fondata nel 2005, Dave Douglas riunisce attorno a sé l'ottimo quartetto di ottoni The Westerlies, formato da musicisti originari di Seattle (dei quali abbiamo già segnalato qualche mese fa il doppio CD omonimo pubblicato nel 2016) e aggiunge la batteria del giovane musicista di Filadelfia Anwar Marshall, ...

Fresh Cut Orchestra: Mind Behind Closed Eyes

Read "Mind Behind Closed Eyes" reviewed by Vic Albani

Come dice spesso Uri Caine che di Filadelfia se ne intende giacché ci è nato, una delle migliori caratteristiche dei musicisti di quel posto è il senso del ritmo che, sorprendentemente, tutti i musicisti dell'area portano quasi geneticamente con sé.

La Fresh Cut Orchestra è il risultato dell'incontro che il trombettista Josh Lawrence, il ...

Fresh Cut Orchestra: Mind Behind Closed Eyes

Read "Mind Behind Closed Eyes" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

It's difficult to believe that the rich, full Mind Behind Closed Eyes is only the second release from jny:Philadelphia's Fresh Cut Orchestra; it sounds so much more developed and mature than that. Composed by the Orchestra's core trio of drummer Anwar Marshall, bassist Jason Fraticelli and trumpeter Josh Lawrence, and rounded out by a host of ...

RareNoise Records
2016

Simultaneously dedicated to 20th century classical composer Olivier Messiaen and legendary rap and hip-hop producer J Dilla, Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Microjam! is a musical adventurer's dream and a purist's nightmare. But anything more conventional from conceptualist, composer and guitarist ...

Aaron Parks Group
SOUTH Jazz Kitchen
Philadelphia, PA
May 4, 2016

I apologize in advance if the following descriptions come off as grandiose. But regarding the Aaron Parks Group, anything that doesn't walk the line of hyperbole feels like an undersell. They were one of the most exciting acts ...

Ed Cherry: Soul Tree

Read "Soul Tree" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

If there were a reward given for the most consistently underappreciated guitarist with the longest staying power, it would have to go to Ed Cherry. Most known for his fifteen-year stint with Dizzy Gillespie back in the '80s and '90s, Cherry has been constantly active, but criminally undocumented as a leader throughout most of his career. ...
