Angelika Niescier / Alexander Hawkins: Soul In Plain Sight

Read "Soul In Plain Sight" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Some pairings were just meant to be. Exhibit one, Soul In Plain Sight by the duo of Angelika Niescier and Alexander Hawkins. Niescier, the Polish-born Germany-based saxophonist, met the British pianist Hawkins at the Berlin Jazzfest. Their mutual admiration led to a brief tour and this recording. The music succeeds here because of the musicians' balanced ...

Favourite Releases of 2019

Read "Favourite Releases of 2019" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This episode features some of my favourite recordings released in 2019, chosen from a year of some pretty damn fine music. It always seems that I tend toward bassist-led sessions, and that's the case again, with great recordings from Carlos Bica, Torbjorn Zetterberg and the Miles Perkin Quartet for starters. As well, more women artists appear ...

Read "Paul Plimley, Evan Parker & Denis Fournier" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This show marks the one-year anniversary of publishing One Man's Jazz on All About Jazz's radio section, and we're taking a decided dip into the “deep end" of the improvisation pool. There's lots of avant-garde, experimental, free form, free improv on the bill. Is it “noise," is it the future? That's for the listener to decide, ...

Angelika Niescier - Christopher Tordini - Gerald Cleaver (feat. Jonathan Finlayson): New York Trio

Read "New York Trio" reviewed by Troy Dostert


After alto saxophonist Angelika Niescier's masterful live disc from 2018, Berlin Concert (Intakt), she decided to head into the studio to document her continually evolving compositions. It's a somewhat altered line-up from the earlier album. Niescier's go-to bassist, Christopher Tordini remains. However, instead of Tyshawn Sorey we have Gerald Cleaver occupying the drum kit; and we ...
