Mike Jurkovic's Best Jazz Albums Of 2022

Read "Mike Jurkovic's Best Jazz Albums Of 2022" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Jazz continues to evolve and win swaths of converts despite what Tik-Tok and a chaotic, crumbling music industry (and world order) might render. These discs, in no particular order and representing no particular form, (ie: bop, free, nu-jazz, house jazz, whatever) are just a small gathering of the many great discs and great ideas the music ...

Gordon Grdina: Intuitive Idiosyncrasy

Read "Gordon Grdina: Intuitive Idiosyncrasy" reviewed by Doug Collette

Read "Boiling Point" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Even if Gordon Grdina does not release another album in 2022, the year should be considered as the time when it all came together for the Vancouver-based guitarist and oud-ist. Oddly Enough: The Music Of Tim Berne, Night's Quietest Hour and Pathways, all on Attaboygirl Records, were released in the first six month of 2022--a productive ...

RedGreenBlue: The End And The Beginning

Read "The End And The Beginning" reviewed by Chris May


RedGreenBlue sound like they have emerged from the same synapse-snapping dope bunker that La Monte Young and Jon Hassell exited with their Theatre Of Eternal Music in the 1970s, whacked out on opium, hashish and mescaline, dazed but not confused. RedGreenBlue may or may not indulge in the same psychotropic self-medication as their Lower East Side ...
