Esbjörn Svensson: HOME.S.

Read "HOME.S." reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Akin to when people first sat in elegant staterooms listening to Chopin, Mendelssohn, Mahler, or Erik Satie seek the muse, HOME.S stands as the first solo performance by the late Swedish pianist Esbjörn Svensson and will quite possibly be considered the grandest moment of any other forthcoming posthumous releases. Recorded mere weeks before the ...

Gerald Clayton: Bells On Sand

Read "Bells On Sand" reviewed by Chris May

It seems like an age since pianist Gerald Clayton's previous album, Happening: Live At The Village Vanguard (Blue Note, 2020), although it is actually only two years. But what traumatic years they were--and what an impact they have had on Clayton's new album. The Vanguard disc, recorded in spring 2019, was an often exuberant ...

Bremer/McCoy: Utopia

Read "Utopia" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Since they released their debut, Enhed (Raske Plader, 2013), Danish bassist Jonathan Bremer and pianist Morten McCoy have been quietly crafting their own sound, and their fourth album, Utopia, marks a new beginning for the duo simply billed as Bremer/McCoy. The difference this time is that David Byrne's renowned Luaka Bop label has ...

Yakir Arbib: My Name Is Yakir

Read "My Name Is Yakir" reviewed by Don Phipps

Clever and entertaining, My Name is Yakir offers a diverse potpourri of jazz standards and original compositions performed by pianist Yakir Arbib. The music contrasts standards from the Dixieland, swing, bebop and hard bop eras with five originals that mix classical idioms with loose jazz structures. Arbib certainly has talent and his technical dexterity permits him ...

John Law: The Re-Creations Trilogy

Read "John Law: The Re-Creations Trilogy" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

John Law is one of the most prominent pianists on the British jazz scene and he is also a distinctive composer. So far, he has focused primarily on building a substantial compositional body of work, culminating in his ambitious Art of Sound tetralogy (33 Jazz, 2007-2009), followed by strong records like Three Leaps of the Gazelle ...

Lyrical Stories in Music: Jakob Dinesen & Jean-Sebastian Simonoviez, FLOW and Michael Vincent Waller

Read "Lyrical Stories in Music: Jakob Dinesen & Jean-Sebastian Simonoviez, FLOW and Michael Vincent Waller" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Saying that a piece of music is lyrical presupposes a quality that is hard to define. You know what it is until you need to explain it. The Cambridge Dictionary says that it means: “expressing personal thoughts and feelings in a beautiful way," which doesn't really say much. In music, storytelling is just as elusive. It's ...

Ada Rovatti e il Questionario di Proust

Read "Ada Rovatti e il Questionario di Proust" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

Il tratto principale della mia musica Accessibile ma armonicamente e stilisticamente sofisticata. Così almeno è stata definita in una recensione e penso che mi si addica. La qualità che desidero nei musicisti che suonano con me Mentalità musicale aperta e rispetto. Come musicista, il momento in cui sono ...

Live From Brussels: Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, Sal La Rocca, Igor Gehenot, Diederniko Kummsels & Makas

Read "Live From Brussels: Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, Sal La Rocca, Igor Gehenot, Diederniko Kummsels & Makas" reviewed by Martin Longley

Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège Bozar January 9, 2019 Much of this evening's programme featured compositions that are probably of interest to jazzers, particularly with the presence of George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein, although Aaron Copland and Samuel Barber will doubtless have more crossover appeal than most composers. There was ...
