Fima Ephron: Hasidic Folk Song

Read "Fima Ephron: Hasidic Folk Song" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

Though it lacks many of the fascinating David Torn-produced, sonic manipulations strewn throughout Soul Machine (Tzadik, 2001), “Hasidic Folk Song" is emblematic of the ethno-electric-jazz explorations on bassist Fima Ephron's debut as a leader and a sizzler to boot. The track features Ephron's former Lost Tribe cohorts Adam Rogers and David Binney, as well as Edward ...

Bill Bruford: The Summerfold Collection 1987-2008

Read "Bill Bruford: The Summerfold Collection 1987-2008" reviewed by John Kelman

Intrepid percussionist/composer/bandleader Bill Bruford began his career in the late '60s art-rock arena with Yes and, later, King Crimson, but jazz has always moved underneath, like an eddying current. His early recordings, well documented on the companion Winterfold Collection, may not speak the language of jazz, but they possess its spirit. By 1986, Bruford ...

Read "The Flowering Am" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The first sound that greets the listener to this new improvisational trio is the familiar strangled whammy bar manipulations of guitarist David Torn, joined by textural sounds by fellow guitarist Tim Motzer. Drummer Jeremy Carlstedt provides only a heartbeat rhythm initially, followed by cymbals and drums that only coalesce into a regular beat about halfway into ...

Read "Stephan Thelen: Of Sonar, Fractals And Interactive Complexity" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

If you have been at all aware of the two-decade-old movement known as Swiss Minimalism, you've likely seen Stephan Thelen's name crop up. Lately, it would be fairly difficult not to.

Fractal Sextet: Fractal Sextet

Read "Fractal Sextet" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

In the over two-decade-old “movement" that's come to be known as Swiss Minimalism, guitarist Stephan Thelen has pushed himself to the fore, both with his group SONAR and in solo projects.
