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." The music is decidedly modern with a taste of the Brazilian and Indian musical influences. Originally from Cincinnati, OH, Hartman moved to London, UK in 2011 ...

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: Compass

Read "Compass" reviewed by Doug Collette


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. In keeping with the dual meaning of the ...

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. Another Rollins album which springs to mind, though more for its title than its structure, is Saxophone Colossus (Riverside, ...

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 ...

Susanne Abbuehl: Compass

Read "Compass" reviewed by Budd Kopman


Compass is vocalist Susanne Abbuehl's second recording for ECM, after 2001's April. Five years is a long time between albums, but the wait was well worth it. Her band has not changed, except that Lucas Niggli has replaced Samuel Rohrer on drums and percussion, and Michel Portal has been added as a second clarinet on two ...

Susanne Abbuehl: Compass

Read "Compass" reviewed by John Kelman


Anyone fortunate enough to have heard Susanne Abbuehl's out-of-print first record, I Am Rose (Evoke, 1997), knows that while the singer's musical direction was already developing, it was not until her 2001 ECM debut, April, that it became fully realized. Compass is a logical evolution, but it manages a few surprises, finding Abbuehl and her unorthodox ...
