MUSICIAN Born:

Eric Revis

Grammy-winning bassist/composer Eric Revis has been one of the most solid and forceful voices in the contemporary jazz scene for over 15 years despite his young age. The deep-running power of his beat, his potent and gorgeous tone, and his dynamic approach to music keeps him in high demands among notable musicians such as Branford Marsalis and Jeff "Tain" Watts. Born in Los Angeles, CA on May 31, 1967, he grew up listening mostly to funk and rock music. It was not until when he was 14 years of age that he picked up an electric bass and taught himself how to play. After attending Southern University as biology major for a year, Eric relocated to San Antonio, TX where he got a regular gig playing 6 nights a week. As Eric worked the gig, his fellow band members introduced him to jazz

Thomas Marriott: Trumpet Ship

Read "Trumpet Ship" reviewed by Paul Rauch

In a day and age when social and personal narratives pervade the jazz recording medium, it is a welcoming feeling to experience a recording of superb jazz musicians playing music in the moment the way it's supposed to be played—for the people. For his spring 2020 quartet release Trumpet Ship (Origin, 2020), Seattle-based trumpeter ...

Avram Fefer Quartet: Testament

Read "Testament" reviewed by Mark Corroto

After a blindfold listening test, maybe the greatest compliment you can give Testament is to guess the leader's name to be drummer Chad Taylor, or maybe bassist Eric Revis, guitarist Marc Ribot or saxophonist Avram Fefer himself. This misapprehension is attributed to the equal footing each of the four musicians is given on the recording. Partly ...

Ken Vandermark with Kris Davis/Hamid Drake/Paul Lytton/Ikue Mori/William Parker: Momentum 4: Consequent Duos 2015>2019 (Box Set)

Read "Momentum 4: Consequent Duos 2015>2019 (Box Set)" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

When reed player and composer Ken Vandermark launched his recording career in 1995, he did so with the deceptively titled Standards (Quinnah Records). Free improvisations with titles like “Rage for Speaking" and “A Sick Man's Dreams" indicated a different view of the agreed-upon definition. And so, it has been and has evolved, over nearly twenty-five years ...

Greg Ward: Nature Work

Read "Nature Work" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

"Con quel sorriso può dire ciò che vuole" recitava una pubblicità di un noto dentifricio che rese celebre al grande pubblico l'attrice Virna Lisi. Parafrasando potremmo dire, riguardo Nature Work , “Con quella ritmica puoi suonare quello che vuoi" perché Eric Revis al contrabbasso e Jim Black alla batteria formano una coppia formidabile (sorprendentemente al loro ...

Tula's Jazz Club: Soliloquy to a Seattle Jazz Institution

Read "Tula's Jazz Club: Soliloquy to a Seattle Jazz Institution" reviewed by Paul Rauch

It was the tail end of a long weekend. Temperatures had risen to 80 degrees under a sunny only-in-Seattle blue sky, the waterways and markets humming with a sea of humanity. It was not a night one would expect many to venture into the quiet, dark solitude of Tula's Jazz Club, where for nearly 26 years ...

Read "Rich Halley, Satoko Fuji, Ramon Lopez & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Those artists who have been able to sustain long careers and consistently move the music forward must be celebrated, and this episode recognizes two such examples who have new recordings out at the moment: Be Known: Ancient/Future/Music from Chicago's Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, the group put together in 1976 by percussionist Kahil El'Zabar, and Terra Incognita from ...

Nature Work: Nature Work

Read "Nature Work" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jason Stein and Greg Ward are two stalwart Chicago musicians who continually stretch boundaries and search for new experiences. Stein, a devotee of the bass clarinet, maintains two trios, Hearts & Minds (with Paul Giallorenzo and Chad Taylor) and Locksmith Isador (with Jason Roebke and Mike Pride), plus his quartet with Joshua Abrams, Keefe Jackson, and ...

OGJB Quartet & The Last Poets

Read "OGJB Quartet & The Last Poets" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

There's no way to use geographical borders to define this music called jazz. For instance, the Freequestra from Slovenia: led by acclaimed guitarist Samo Salamon— the ensemble wends its way with power and emotion through Salamon's new Free Sessions Vol.2, a rollicking excursion through the avant-garde. Or in the case of OGJB, a quartet of four ...
