Arbenz / Krijger / Osby: Conversation #9: Targeted

Read "Conversation #9: Targeted" reviewed by Chris May


This mind-bending album skewers any notion that modern-day organ trios are all unimaginative bores churning out reheated cliches lifted from Blue Note and Prestige albums of the 1950s and '60s. With that stereotype in mind, one would hesitate to apply the term “organ trio" to the collaborative group on Targeted. But its instigator, ...

Size Matters: (Mostly New) Jazz for Big Bands and Orchestras, Part 4

Read "Size Matters: (Mostly New) Jazz for Big Bands and Orchestras, Part 4" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Pino Palladino and Blake Mills: Notes with Attachments

Read "Notes with Attachments" reviewed by Chris May


Do not be put off by the cover. It might suggest inaccessible, up itself, bone-dry cerebralism, but the reality is contrariwise. Around a third of the music is vaguely reminiscent, in spirit if not in execution, of the 1949-1950 Birth Of The Cool sessions conducted by Miles Davis with arrangers Gil Evans, John Lewis, Gerry Mulligan ...
