Andrew Hartman

New York City based guitarist and composer Andrew Hartman is becoming a recognizable voice in jazz. As Chris Spector writes, Hartman is “blazing his own trail without debt to the masters of the past rearing it’s head.” (Midwest Record) 

Hartman has released two albums of his original music, Andrew Hartman and Still Motion, and his most recent album, Compass, which features saxophonist Chris Cheek, bassist Ike Sturm, and drummer Zach Harmon. The album is receiving critical praise, including from All About Jazz writer Edwin Blanco’s who says: “Kudos to guitarist Andrew Hartman for crafting such an engaging and exceptional work of art.”

Andrew Hartman: Compass

Read "Compass" reviewed by Edward Blanco

New York-based jazz guitarist Andrew Hartman offers his second album as leader with the modern jazz-like Compass featuring nine originals and a newly-arranged rendition of the Paul Simon classic “America."

Joshua Redman: Compass

Read "Compass" reviewed by Jeff Stockton

No jazz musician with Joshua Redman's pedigree, chops and talent wants to be tagged as “cautious" or “cerebral," but that was Redman's reputation, perhaps right up until Back East was released in 2007. That CD, a return to straight-ahead acoustic playing after a brief digression, found the saxophonist fronting a few different rhythm sections (and standing ...

Joshua Redman has made some fine albums in the past, including Timeless Tales (For Changing Times) (Warner Bros., 1998), Passage of Time (Warner Bros., 2001) and Spirit of the Moment Live (Warner Bros., 1995), but he's never recorded one with such clarity of purpose as the self-produced Compass.

Joshua Redman: Compass

Read "Compass" reviewed by Chris May

Like its predecessor Back East (Nonesuch, 2007), saxophonist Joshua Redman's Compass invites comparisons with Sonny Rollins' totemic acoustic trio outing Way Out West (Riverside, 1957), whose instrumentation it reflects and whose influence Redman has acknowledged.

Susanne Abbuehl: Compass

Read "Compass" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La cantante svizzero-olandese Susanne Abbuehl è solita frequentare territori sofisticati e liminali, nei quali gli stili - jazz, classica, pop - si intrecciano e confondono l’uno con l’altro. E questo Compass, non fa eccezione: la sua impostazione è decisamente cameristico-contemporanea, con prevalenza di atmosfere sospese e pensose, molto nordeuropee, ma richiama anche la poetica di altri ...
