Dave Rempis: Stringers & Struts

Read "Stringers & Struts" reviewed by John Sharpe

Chicago-based reedman Dave Rempis has hit such a peak of consistency that the number of stars awarded to any particular outing is more down to personal preference than any variation in quality. He's in control of his own destiny as most of his output flows from his own Aerophonic imprint. And he's achieved another high point ...

Yoni Kretzmer / Jason Ajemian / Kevin Shea: Until Your Throat Is Dry

Read "Until Your Throat Is Dry" reviewed by John Sharpe

Israeli-born, NYC-based tenor saxophonist Yoni Kretzmer convenes a co-operative trio on Until Your Throat Is Dry, released on his own OutNow imprint.

Otomo Yoshihide Quartet: Allurements of the Ellipsoid

Read "Allurements of the Ellipsoid" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The minimalist improvisation of Otomo Yoshihide's Quartet, assembled for the 2005 Donaueschinger Music Festival, delivers a thoroughly abstract sound that could never be described as obtuse. This coming together of heavyweight improvisers yielded two discs--one, a studio session and the other, a live performance--recorded over three days. Those familiar with the genius of Yoshihide's ...

Mikrokolektyw: Revisit

Read "Revisit" reviewed by Nic Jones

It stretches as far as the music, too, because this Polish duo is enthralled with one of the windy city's current musical strands. They owe a debt to the Chicago Underground Trio in the way they ...

Chicago Underground Trio: Chronicle

Read "Chronicle" reviewed by Seamus Seoighe

The Chicago Underground Trio is more of an idea than a group per se. With albums being put out by an ever-changing group of musicians over the last decade-and-a-half, carrying the torch as the Chicago Underground implies a commitment to pushing boundaries; be it sonic boundaries, or the boundaries that could inhibit a trio creating live ...

Chicago Underground Trio: Chronicle [CD - DVD]

Read "Chronicle [CD - DVD]" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Filmare della musica da vivo e aggiungervi un apporto creativo è cosa maledettamente difficile. La cosa più ostica è trovare innanzitutto l'equilibrio tra la documentazione di ciò che viene girato e l'idea originale del filmmaker. Ripreso allo Spazio Culturale Tedesco di Chicago, questo nuovo lavoro [in DVD, ma anche in CD] del Chicago Underground Trio [che ...

Chicago Underground Trio: Chronicle

Read "Chicago Underground Trio: Chronicle" reviewed by Nic Jones

Chicago Underground Trio Chronicle Delmark 2007 This DVD marks a break with precedent for Delmark in terms of its content. Whereas their previous titles have documented live performances in the raw with little in the way of visual stimulus outside that of the musicians working, this one is ...
