Ethan Iverson: Technically Acceptable

Read "Technically Acceptable" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


The funhouse genius of pianist Ethan Iverson hits full nor'easter with Technically Accepted, an album so loaded with invention and cool it rises instantly to the pack of hands-down favorites for the still unformed year of 2024. Unbounded, Iverson's many quirks and instigations hurl madly around the house, the studio, the bodega down the ...

Rymden + KORK: Rymden + KORK

Read "Rymden + KORK" reviewed by Gareth Thompson


The Norwegian Radio Orchestra (aka KORK) performs each year at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert. By contrast, it has also twice provided backing to the Eurovision Song Contest in Norway. Intriguing then to find them linking up with Bugge Wesseltoft, leader of Rymden and a pianist-composer whose work is both learned and accessible. Both parties create ...

Judith Wegmann, Andreas Kunz: Morton Feldmand - For John Cage

Read "Morton Feldmand - For John Cage" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Morton Feldman che omaggia John Cage? Come se Fellini avesse girato un film su Visconti. Questo non ci risulta sia mai accaduto, l'altra cosa sì, ed è già un bell'evento, ed è appunto ciò che trovate in quest'ora e mezza di musica disposta su due dischetti e frutto di un'incisione del febbraio 2021 in terra svizzera ...

Frank Macchia: Bluezapalooza

Read "Bluezapalooza" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Landscapes (Cacophony, 2008), for instance, with The Prague Orchestra, was a sweeping masterpiece of an album which should have won him some sort of Aaron Copland Award (It was nominated for a Grammy). But the reedist-composer-arranger also has a fun side, with albums like 2012's Swamp ...

Dan Dean: Fanfare For The Common Man

Read "Fanfare For The Common Man" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Songs Without Words (Origin Classical, 2017) opened the door to Dan Dean's giant step into “going vocal"— an innovative approach to his choir-like voice-layering presentations of classical music. Rain Painting (Origin Records, 2021), teaming Dean with guitarist John Stowell, proved a perfect digression into Stowell's distinctive compositions, employing Dean's vocal harmonies, bass playing and drum programming ...

The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake

Read "The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake" reviewed by Duncan Heining


There have been few American composers and musicians, with the ability to encapsulate their country's music in all its racial and ethnic complexity. We might perhaps point to Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Charles Ives and perhaps, in their own distaff ways, Harry Partch and Steve Reich. In jazz, their number is fewer still--Duke Ellington and George ...
