Angles: A Muted Reality

Read "A Muted Reality" reviewed by Mark Corroto


For Swedish saxophonist Martin Küchen, all music is folk music. Proof of that statement is the Angles' release A Muted Reality. Whether he is referencing Balkan, African, Swedish, American jazz or Spanish dialects, he is drawing on kindred spirits in his music. With the various editions of his Angles projects, from trios to 10-piece small big ...

Read "Gard Nilssen, Sam Rivers, Dark Tree & Clean Feed" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Angles 9: Disappeared Behind the Sun

Read "Disappeared Behind the Sun" reviewed by John Sharpe


On the sixth release from reedman Martin Küchen's mid-sized Angles ensemble, all the winning traits so evident on previous outings are still present and correct: heart wrenching melodies, huge foot-tapping riffs, sweeping chorales and adventurous raw soloing, not least by the leader himself. Many of the same top notch players remain on board, notably trombonist Mats ...

All Included: Satan In Plain Clothes

Read "Satan In Plain Clothes" reviewed by John Sharpe


Cooperative five piece All Included goes from strength to strength on Satan In Plain Clothes, building on the already considerable charms of their debut Reincarnation Of A Free Bird (Stone Floor, 2012). Connections abound in the unchanged line up which reflects the burgeoning, almost incestuous, Scandinavian scene. Check out the overlaps in personnel among groups such ...

I dischi del 2014

Read "I dischi del 2014" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Magnus Broo: Swedish Wood

Read "Swedish Wood" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Those partial to avant-garde musicians who swing will prefer trumpeter Magnus Broo's Swedish Wood over fans of neoconservatives that embrace freedom. Broo's melodic take on the two-bass (Torbjörn Zetterberg and Joe Williamson) and drummer (Håkon Mjåset Johansen) quartet finds him mostly playing the straight-man to his adventurist and sometime comedic band members. Fans of ...
