Noah Preminger Rob Garcia Dead Composers Club: Chopin Project

Read "Chopin Project" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Quartetto a doppia firma, questo “club dei compositori morti," con Noah Preminger che ribadisce la sua predilezione per l'organico a quattro, ma agisce qui con una chitarra al posto della tromba (Jason Palmer), confermando peraltro al contrabbasso Kim Cass. Del resto il gruppo, come detto, non è solo suo, con Rob Garcia che—a voler completare il ...

Rob Garcia: Drum Solos For Dancers Only

Read "Drum Solos For Dancers Only" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


There's more than enough artistry, craftsmanship and ingenuity in Rob Garcia's Drum Solos For Dancers Only to please the sedentary jazz aficionado. Although the thirteen tracks are intended to spur bodies in motion, his drumming merits scrutiny on purely musical terms. For the most part Garcia executes swinging rhythms much like the ones that drove the ...

Dead Composers Club: The Chopin Project

Read "The Chopin Project" reviewed by Geno Thackara

With the first installment of their Dead Composers Club project, Noah Preminger and Rob Garcia pay affectionate respect to a well-known oeuvre while still keeping it a long way from predictable. Fittingly enough for ...

Rob Garcia's Sangha: Heart's Fire

Read "Heart's Fire" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone


Drummer/percussionist/bandleader Rob Garcia's Heart's Fire, with his group Sangha, may initially be reminiscent of the music of Black Jazz Records, a 1970s-era label that focused on original soul-jazz, but further listens reveal something more. The word “Sangha" is a Buddhist term that comes from the Three Treasures roughly translating to “the community ...
