Read "Banquet of Consequences" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Dalla fine degli anni Novanta avevo assistito all'esordio di Antonio Borghini in seno al collettivo bolognese Bassesfere, al fianco di Fabrizio Puglisi, Cristina Zavalloni, Domenico Caliri, Edoardo Marraffa e tanti altri.

Trevor Watts' Original Drum Orchestra: The Art Is In The Rhythm Volume 2

Read "The Art Is In The Rhythm Volume 2" reviewed by Chris May

A co-founder of London's pioneering Spontaneous Music Ensemble with drummer John Stevens in the mid 1960s, saxophonist Trevor Watts has straddled an unusually wide spectrum of genres. With SME he explored an area of free jazz which, in deliberate contrast to contemporary American adventurers such as Ornette Coleman or members of the Association for the Advancement ...

Hanna Paulsberg Concept: Daughter Of The Sun

Read "Hanna Paulsberg Concept: Daughter Of The Sun" reviewed by Chris May

Ever since Jan Garbarek put Norwegian jazz on the map in the late 1980s, and even more so after the international success of his singularly ascetic Officium (ECM) in 1994, the music has acquired a reputation for being, if not entirely lacking in passion, then at least emotionally detached. Since the millennium, with the emergence of ...

Howard Riley / Keith Tippett: Journal Four

Read "Journal Four" reviewed by John Sharpe

British pianists Howard Riley and Keith Tippett were seasoned proponents of the never widespread format of the piano duet, both together and apart. Riley's partners also included Jaki Byard as well as overdubbed sessions with himself, while Tippett's discography contains entries with Stan Tracey, Daryl Runswick and Matthew Bourne (though the last took place subsequent to ...

BigSpoon's Chris Engel: Intention... And Spontaneity

Read "BigSpoon's Chris Engel: Intention...  And Spontaneity" reviewed by Ian Patterson

So much goes into a debut album—a lifetime of learning, experiences and myriad influences. The music that springs forth is also often shaped in subtle and unfathomable ways that are sometimes not entirely clear even to the composer. Some musical reference points may appear obvious, others much less so, and so it is with ...

The Blue Notes: Refugees From Race Hate

Read "The Blue Notes: Refugees From Race Hate" reviewed by Chris May

In late May 2022, three months into the war in Ukraine, the plight of refugees is at the front of our minds. Around five million Ukrainians have become refugees and another seven million are displaced persons inside their own country. The apartheid-era South African refugee crisis was not on this scale. The number of internally displaced ...

Nduduzo Makhathini: In The Spirit Of Ntu

Read "In The Spirit Of Ntu" reviewed by Chris May

There are strong links between London's alternative jazz scene and the parallel and burgeoning one in South Africa. A case in point is the connection between South African pianist Nduduzo Makhathini and British tenor saxophonist and clarinetist Shabaka Hutchings. Makhathini and Hutchings' similar ages and overlapping, cosmologically informed takes on jazz meant they were ...

From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics

Read "From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics" reviewed by Chris May

The only thread running through this installment of Building A Jazz Library is that of unsung quality. No particular artist is spotlighted, nor any particular genre. There are simply ten, randomly selected albums, recorded in the US and Europe between 1953 and 2021, which show jazz off at its finest, but which, for one reason or ...
