Chase Kuesel: Space Between

Read "Space Between" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Drummer and composer Chase Kuesel is based in Brooklyn, but his debut release as leader, Space Between, arose from a year spent studying in Basel as part of a select group of young musicians funded through the Focusyear Artist Grant. It's an album that's notable for Kuesel's ambitious compositions--drawing on influences including Olivier Messiaen, Norma Winstone ...

Pinball: Pinball

Read "Pinball" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

"Tommy" played a mean pinball, while Brian Protheroe ran out of pale ale when he made his own “Pinball" into a hit record. This Pinball, the debut release from the Australian/French quartet of the same name, has none of the feel of a dingy games arcade, or the odour of pale ale. Instead, it is an ...

Julian Costello Quartet: Connections: without borders

Read "Connections: without borders" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Three years after its debut release, Transitions (33 Jazz), the Julian Costello Quartet returns with Connections: without borders. The debut was recorded in Italy, but for the follow-up the London-based band decamped to Norway, to record nine of leader and saxophonist Costello's compositions at Blueberry Fields studios in Heggedal. The tunes are indeed connected, reflecting how ...

Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet: Bluebeard

Read "Bluebeard" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Mournful. That's the adjective that springs to mind when Dutch musician Yuri Honing blows his saxophone on Bluebeard. “Blows" is something of a mis-description though: Honing's considered approach to his instrument is closer to caressing. His sound and approach are mirrored by his bandmates, who are equally adept at such a distinctive form of creativity. The ...

John Law's Congregation: Configuration

Read "Configuration" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

John Law's Congregation is a quartet led by British pianist and composer Law and completed by three musicians from the UK jazz scene--James Mainwaring (Roller Trio), Ashley John Long and Billy Weir--who are part of what Brian Morton's sleeve notes calls the “new generation players." Law has been performing since the 1980s, releasing over ...

Chip Wickham: Blue To Red

Read "Blue To Red" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

It's not always easy to feel uplifted and optimistic these days, when reasons to be downhearted seem to overwhelm the reasons to be cheerful. When an album's title refers to a planet's descent from life-giving blue to the deadness of red (Mars, in this context, but British flautist Chris Wickham fears that Earth may be heading ...

MoonMot: Going Down The Well

Read "Going Down The Well" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Six musicians from the UK and Switzerland, with a strong background in improvisation and a talent for mixing acoustic and electronic instrumentation, creating tunes which move from the gentle, Rhodes-led, intro to “35 Years" and the bass-sax interplay which opens “Threnody Of The English Polity" to the raucous baritone sax of the title track—that is MoonMot ...

Robin Phillips: Re-Versed

Read "Re-Versed" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

How long does it take to write the lyrics? Some of the greatest and best-loved American Songbook lyrics might have been rattled out in a couple of hours or less, others might have taken months or years of refinement before their creators decided they were worthy of performance. They may be intended to tell a story, ...

London Afrobeat Collective: Humans

Read "Humans" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Hard-driving, politically-charged, rhythmic, irresistibly-danceable music; what else could be expected from a band that mixes influences from Fela Kuti, Parliament/Funkadelic, Frank Zappa, and Nile Rogers and Bernard Edwards into one exciting and uplifting musical pot? Such expectations are high, but the London Afrobeat Collective meets them with ease. There have been a few personnel ...

For Now: The Turning

Read "The Turning" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

For Now is a young Texas-based quintet—vocals, guitar, piano, bass, drums—led by singer and composer Isabel Crespo. The Turning is the band's second album, following 2018's self-produced Elsewhere and the first with new members Ben McDonald and Matt Young. As with the band's debut release, the sound is expanded by the addition of guest players, but ...
