Chris Pitsiokos / Javier Areal Velez / Kevin Murray: First Blush

Read "First Blush" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Was this gig at New York's Downtown Music Gallery in January, 2020, a one-off performance? Saxophonist Chris Pitsiokos was scheduled to perform solo, probably to promote his extraordinary solo release Speak In Tongues (Relative Pitch, 2019), but chose instead to expand to a trio. And a new trio at that. This wasn't one of his recent ...

I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Daniel Levin

Read "I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Daniel Levin" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


01. Joe Morris -Solos -Bimhuis (Relative Pitch -2015). Musica incredibile. Ci sono così tante informazioni in ogni frase di Joe. La prima volta che ho ascoltato questo disco, sono ritornato sui primi tredici secondi di “Trunk" almeno una trentina di volte prima di passare al brano successivo. Incredibilmente denso e fluido allo stesso tempo.

Juan Pablo Carletti/Tony Malaby/Christopher Hoffman: Niño/Brujo

Read "Niño/Brujo" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The Argentinian-born, New York-based drummer recruited tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby and cellist Christopher Hoffman for this recording. An inconspicuous drummer-led session. Carletti's last decade ...

Read "Graceless" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni
