Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2019

Read "Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Is it jazz? Perhaps not in the narrowest sense, but each of the releases below arguably retains enough of a foothold in the tradition to justify that description. Maybe we've finally reached the point where the question no longer matters. In any case, what these artists have in common is a commitment to venturing outward in ...

Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz

Read "Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Two rather contrasting recordings highlight this episode: Dan Weiss with his trio augmented by a second bassist and Rubberband, the once-shelved and now revived release from Miles Davis which was recorded after he had left Columbia. On Weiss' album, he displays the chops (often with heavy rock influences) that make him such a high-in-demand player, while ...

Trio Treats

Read "Trio Treats" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This episode is dominated by trios, perhaps the most popular format in jazz today. Steve Lehman's new The People I Love debuts (with the addition of the formidable pianist Craig Taborn), definitely a must-hear for 2019. Golden Valley Is Now reunites Taborn with Dave King and Reid Anderson (they all grew up together), while another threesome ...

Munsey's nine compositions, alive with sparse grooves and slippery time passages morphing from one odd equation to the next collective ...

Rich Halley, Satoko Fuji, Ramon Lopez & More

Read "Rich Halley, Satoko Fuji, Ramon Lopez & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Those artists who have been able to sustain long careers and consistently move the music forward must be celebrated, and this episode recognizes two such examples who have new recordings out at the moment: Be Known: Ancient/Future/Music from Chicago's Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, the group put together in 1976 by percussionist Kahil El'Zabar, and Terra Incognita from ...

Stephanie Richards: Take The Neon Lights

Read "Take The Neon Lights" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Trumpeter/composer Steph Richards kicks ass and she wants you to know it from the very first cutting, fluttering evocations of Take The Neon Lights' title tune/opener to the near “Taps"-like silence that closes things out, “All the Years of Our Lives." With a colorful CV of playing alongside such boundary-busting, risk-taking players as David ...
