Stella Bass: Look For The Silver Lining

Read "Look For The Silver Lining" reviewed by Ian Patterson


It is an enviable trait to always look for the silver lining in troubled times. For Dublin vocalist Stella Bass, when gigs dried up during the Covid pandemic, the silver lining was the gift of time. She did not waste it, studying music production with Berklee College, Boston, and music composition & arranging with Studio Orchestrations, ...

Carole Nelson: Zen And The Art Of Music Making

Read "Carole Nelson: Zen And The Art Of Music Making" reviewed by Ian Patterson


To what extent music is a product of nature versus nurture is impossible to qualify, but it is reasonable to assume that a musician's immediate environment plays into the music somehow. Difficult, certainly, to imagine bebop birthing anywhere other than in the hurly burly of 1940s New York, for example. For London-born, Ireland-based pianist Carole Nelson, ...

Carole Nelson Trio: Night Vision

Read "Night Vision" reviewed by Ian Patterson


For good or for bad, the pandemic lockdowns spurred no end of introspective, soul-searching albums. Ireland-based English pianist Carole Nelson could have been heading that way when a 2020 residency in Mayo, with the Na Cailleach women's art collective, prompted her contemplation of the ancient peat-bog landscape, the wild sea and humans' story in place and ...

Adam Nolan: Prim and Primal

Read "Prim and Primal" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Whether stalking the perimeters or cutting to the bone, Irish alto saxophonist Adam Nolan's full throated assault on alternative facts takes you by storm on his fourth (and hopefully breakthrough) disc, Prim and Primal. Like Ornette Coleman, like Anthony Braxton, Nolan and his fellow non-shy improvisors—bassist Derek Whyte and drummer Dominic Mullan—keep the music ...

Adam Nolan: Prim and Primal

Read "Prim and Primal" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci


Tell you what. A lot of listeners have never been particularly big fans of free jazz. “It is difficult to understand." Really? “Formalism," said Sergei Prokofiev, “is the name given to music not understood on first hearing." This, recall, was a statement made in defense of Dmitri Shostakovich and his Fourth Symphony.

Adam Nolan Trio: Prim and Primal

Read "Prim and Primal" reviewed by Jim Worsley


Prim and Primal is a cool name for a record. It does, however, take some balls to put out a record with such a title. It leaves listeners with deep expectations. To paraphrase the old saying, though, “It's okay to talk the talk if you can walk the walk." Alto saxophonist Adam Nolan has a pair ...
