James Brandon Lewis: Jesup Wagon

Read "Jesup Wagon" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Most listeners have long since moved saxophonist James Brandon Lewis from the rising star category to one labeled virtuoso. But then, pianist Matthew Shipp signaled this status when he mentored Lewis early on and certainly bassist William Parker ordained his arrival by recording with the saxophonist on his major label debut, Divine Travels (Okeh, 2014). Parker ...

James Brandon Lewis & Red Lily Quintet: Jesup Wagon

Read "Jesup Wagon" reviewed by Vic Albani


Erano anni che il jazz attendeva un lavoro come questo. Splendido nella totale sua interezza, capace di riportare “il jazz nel jazz" dopo tanti anni e tante nuove incisioni che i critici hanno valutato con attenzione e spesso incensate come lo sforzo creativo del guardare avanti, pur “rimanendo nobilmente avvinghiati alla tradizione" e via di conserva. ...

Tony Malaby: Turnpike Diaries

Read "Tony Malaby: Turnpike Diaries" reviewed by Dave Kaufman


COVID-19 has decimated the live music business and left many jazz musicians without the much-needed income from gigs. The absence of live music has been partially compensated for by livestream performances and a small number of outdoor gigs, including those supported by the Arts for Arts group. Nevertheless, feel-good stories have been few and far between ...

LABtrio: Nature City

Read "Nature City" reviewed by Henning Bolte


When you consider the ages of the musicians of this trio from Belgium (26, 28 and 30 years) you notice it is a young group. When you take into account the decade these three musicians, bassist Anneleen Boehme, drummer Lander Gyselinck and pianist Bram de Looze, have been working together, you can only come to the ...

Tony Malaby: Scorpion Eater

Read "Scorpion Eater" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


Tubacello: un bel sincretismo lessicale per definire l'organico riunito da Tony Malaby in occasione di questo Scorpion Eater. L'accoppiata di tuba e violoncello (che con il termine tubacello diventano un unico strumento, fantastico) viene scelta dal sassofonista in sostituzione del contrabbasso e dà vita a una formazione di marcata duttilità, in grado di affrontare con efficacia ...

Harris Eisenstadt

Read "Harris Eisenstadt" reviewed by Clifford Allen


One normally thinks of the drummer-bandleader chair in this music as easily given to a mentality that embraces “more is more." Whether bombastic or just plain full, drummers' bands often focus on mass, rhythm and time. In the post-free arena, leaders like Gerry Hemingway, John Hollenbeck and Harris Eisenstadt have learned not only that every instrument ...
