Charles Mingus: The Lost Album from Ronnie Scott's

Read "The Lost Album from Ronnie Scott's" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


After the emotional and economic bankruptcies of the late 1960s that nearly took him out of the picture entirely, 1972 broke well for Charles Mingus. He had re-signed with Columbia and delivered the revered Let My Children Hear Music. (He would, a year later, be part of the great Clive Davis jazz purge of 1973 which ...

Fire And Ice: Two Nordic Contrasts

Read "Fire And Ice: Two Nordic Contrasts" reviewed by Gareth Thompson


The twin forces of ice and fire have long existed in Nordic mythology. In the twenty-first century, northern European music has offered stark contrasts too, with a scene as vibrant and compelling as any on earth.

Quinsin Nachoff: Pivotal Arc

Read "Pivotal Arc" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


Canadian saxophonist and composer Quinsin Nachoff's newest outing out on Whirlwind Recordings once again proves what was established long before: that nothing about his approach to jazz is common. As a matter of fact, if his name weren't almost exclusively mentioned in jazz publications, jazz wouldn't necessarily be the first thing that came to mind when ...

The Touch of Your Lips, Part 3: The Essential Touch in Jazz Piano

Read "The Touch of Your Lips, Part 3: The Essential Touch in Jazz Piano" reviewed by Kurt Ellenberger


Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 It would be nice and tidy if the development of tone color as a primary in jazz piano matched its development in the other instruments, but that is not the case. From early on in jazz's history, composers and bandleaders like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Cab ...

The music contrasts standards from the Dixieland, swing, bebop and hard bop eras with five originals that mix classical idioms with loose jazz structures. Arbib certainly has talent and his technical dexterity permits him ...

Enrico Pieranunzi, André Ceccarelli, Diego Imbert: Monsieur Claude. A Travel with Claude Debussy

Read "Monsieur Claude. A Travel with Claude Debussy" reviewed by Luca Casarotti


È nota la consuetudine di Enrico Pieranunzi con le monografie, segno d'una concezione virtuosa del disco, come esito di una progettualità coerente, e non come mera necessità editoriale: basti pensare ai lavori dedicati a Duke Ellington (Duke's Dream, 2017), a Domenico Scarlatti (Plays Domenico Scarlatti, 2007), a Ennio Morricone (Play Morricone, 2 voll., 2001-2002), a Bill ...

Brian McCarthy: Codex

Read "Codex" reviewed by Doug Collette


Whether saxophonist Brian McCarthy's third full-length studio album, Codex, was specifically intended as such, this comparatively simple, bracing quartet project is a refreshing change of pace from its more involved predecessor, The Better Angels of Our Nature (Truth Revolution, 2017). On the surface at least seemingly far less ambitious, the album begins in a ...
