Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward

Read "Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward" reviewed by Duncan Heining


From the Albert Hall at twenty-two with a fifty-piece band to picking potatoes to make ends meet a decade later, Keith Tippett's life in music could sum up many a jazz career. After a grim '80s, things now look better for the composer, pianist and bandleader. “What I'm about to say is ridiculous but it was ...

Mike Westbrook Orchestra: Catania

Read "Catania" reviewed by Ian Patterson


A major figure in British jazz since the late 1950s, composer-pianist Mike Westbrook continues to write, perform and record at a rate of knots which would leave contenders half his 83 years on the ropes. Four albums since 2016, including--after a gap of forty years—not one but two solo piano recordings, are testament to the creative ...

Cartoon: Change Of Meaning

Read "Change Of Meaning" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Mike Westbrook at Bury St. Edmunds Festival

Read "Mike Westbrook at Bury St. Edmunds Festival" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Mike Westbrook and Kate Westbrook Bury St. Edmunds Festival The Church of St. John the Evangelist May 19, 2017 Of all his many achievements, Mike Westbrook's The Westbrook Blake is one of his finest.

Chris Biscoe Allison Neale: Then and Now

Read "Then and Now" reviewed by Duncan Heining


The idea here is a simple one. Pick a selection of tunes--five standards, two originals--and revisit them, in the style of the Gerry Mulligan/Paul Desmond Quartet. That group was a brief affair, making just two records together--Gerry Mulligan-Paul Desmond Quartet and Two of a Mind. Cleverly, Biscoe and Neale have only picked two tunes covered by ...
