Gary McFarland: The In Sound & Soft Samba

Read "The In Sound & Soft Samba" reviewed by Rob Caldwell

Arranger, vibraphonist and singer Gary McFarland is regarded as one of the major purveyors of orchestral jazz--a type of jazz which had its heyday in the 1960s, but which is not heard as much anymore. A fine line separates orchestral jazz from the dreaded “easy listening" tag. A line so fine, they're often one and the ...

Nels Cline: Lovers

Read "Lovers" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

No one can accuse guitarist Nels Cline of being predictable. He has recorded with his avant-garde trio the Nels Cline Singers most consistently (with bassist Devin Hoff and drummer Scott Amendola), but also led larger groups, such as the one on New Monastery (Cryptogramophone, 2006). More recently there was his duet with guitarist Julian Lage on ...

Nels Cline: Lovers

Read "Lovers" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

When I first heard excerpts from Nels Cline's Lovers project, I wasn't too impressed. I thought it sounded like some kind of archaic “mood music" album. Then as I heard more about the set, including the songs being performed and the personnel performing them, I became intrigued. Now I've heard the entire thing and understand what ...

Arancio, nero e nostalgia: tempo di ristampe in casa Impulse!

Read "Arancio, nero e nostalgia: tempo di ristampe in casa Impulse!" reviewed by Luca Canini

Piovono ristampe in casa Impulse!. Un diluvio benedetto a tinte arancionere che riporta sugli scaffali dei negozi classicissimi e rarità a prezzi stracciati. Non il massimo l'operazione dal punto di vista filologico: grafica discutibile, copertine originali incrociate grossolanamente, rimasterizzazione discreta ma non eccelsa, note riprodotte in miniatura e in alcuni casi praticamente illeggibili; ma il rapporto ...
