Vision Festival 2018

Read "Vision Festival 2018" reviewed by John Sharpe

23rd Annual Vision Festival
Roulette
New York, NY
May 23-28, 2018

Introduction The Vision Festival somewhat surprisingly but reassuringly stands proud as the longest-lived annually produced jazz festival in New York. While the central plank remains what the Festival terms avant jazz, it's interspersed with poetry, dance, art, and ...

Paula Shocron: Paths to a New Sound

Read "Paula Shocron: Paths to a New Sound" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

When Werner X. Uehlinger, the founder of Hat Hut Records, was asked about a statement on why he liked Argentinian pianist Paula Shocron's music, the answer was clear, short and succinct: “The quality of surprise." Uehlinger discovered Shocron's music through her work with the SLD Trio and he liked their debut Anfitrión so much that the ...

Tiger Trio: Unleashed

Read "Unleashed" reviewed by John Sharpe

Three leading exponents of their instruments unite on Unleashed. Since their first collaboration in Vancouver in 2009, French bassist Joëlle Léandre and American flutist Nicole Mitchell have enjoyed a simpatico outlook, as evidenced by a clutch of Rogue Art releases including Before After (2011) and Sisters Where (2014), as well as Flowing Stream (Leo, 2014). Joining ...

Chamber 4: City Of Light

Read "City Of Light" reviewed by John Sharpe

City of Light is the follow up to the excellent eponymous debut by Chamber 4 (FMR, 2015) and presents an unchanged line up. It's also a close relative of For Sale (Clean Feed, 2015), which features three of the same players. Given those connections it shouldn't be a surprise that this live recording from a concert ...

1. Dans les arbres, Phosphorescence (Hubro Music, 2017)

Terzo album di questo meraviglioso gruppo (Xavier Charles, Ivar Grydeland, Christian Wallumrød ed Ingar Zach) che produce una musica diafana, eterea ma allo stesso tempo ruvida e materica. Un universo sonoro del tutto particolare nel quale la mimesi timbrica e la totale assenza di sviluppo narrativo ...

Joëlle Léandre: A Woman's Work...

Read "A Woman's Work..." reviewed by Mark Corroto

How do you sum up the career of an improvising artist like Joëlle Léandre? Do you reissue a package of recordings from her 40 years of performance? That is probably not possible, given the multiple labels and the location and ownership of the masters. Besides, free improvisation, almost by definition, dissipates (or probably should dissipate) upon ...

Hrayr Attarian's Best Releases of 2016

Read "Hrayr Attarian's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Many other writers have submitted superb Best of/End of year lists, so another similar one would be redundant. As women instrumentalists in jazz have been historically underrepresented to great degree and remain a minority even today, below is a list with a feminist bent. These 12 exquisite albums are either by women or prominently feature women. ...

Mark Dresser Seven: Sedimental You

Read "Sedimental You" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In the early stages of his career, bassist/composer Mark Dresser was working with the likes of Anthony Braxton, Marilyn Crispell, and Gerry Hemingway. His long track record of working in composition and improvisation has made him one of the most respected artists in creative music. On Sedimental You, Dresser surrounds himself with a top tier ensemble ...

Filippo Vignato

Read "Filippo Vignato" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

01. How Town -I Dare You Sea (Kleine Opa -2016).
Per me una rivelazione, è il terzo album di questo gruppo vocale (leader il contrabbassista belga Lennart Heyndels) formato da giovani improvvisatori ed improvvisatrici nord-europei di immenso talento gravitanti attorno alla vivace scena olandese. Disco visionario per scrittura, suono, ricerca sulle possibilità dello strumento vocale ...
