Ligeia Mare: Songs We Never Thought Of

Mary Halvorson & Jessica Pavone: Thin Air

Read "Thin Air" reviewed by Farrell Lowe


The music of guitarist Mary Halvorson and violist Jessica Pavone is immediately galvanizing but comfortable, unpredictable yet composed, powerful yet subtle, vulnerable and courageous. In the rarified air of duet recordings where there are few places to hide, the music's context becomes a powerful resonator for artistic values. Thin Air is the third release by the ...

Roger Mas 5et: Mason

Read "Mason" reviewed by Farrell Lowe


Pianist Roger Mas presents a conundrum with Mason. Here is an album expertly executed, well-recorded, and filled with technical detail, but possessing a stark patina that takes time to rub away in order to reveal the core of the music. While there are glimmering moments of improvisational fire, the overall feel is rather mysterious. Perhaps Mas' ...

Greg Ruggiero: Balance

Read "Balance" reviewed by Farrell Lowe


With Balance, guitarist Greg Ruggiero makes it clear that he is an artist with something to say, both through his instrument and his writing. This is not to imply that the music is a template for showy pyrotechnics, but rather a display of subtle technique and thoughtful composition. His pieces have the dynamic feel and grace ...

Dave Allen: Real and Imagined

Read "Real and Imagined" reviewed by Farrell Lowe


Dave Allen's sophomore effort provides nine more of his original compositions to absorb and enjoy. Real and Imagined is filled to the brim with music that is an intricate and flowing tapestry of lyricism and cinematic environments. As a guitarist, Allen readily shows he is of the same pedigree as some of his peers (Ben Monder, ...

Giulia Valle Group: Danza Imprevista

Read "Danza Imprevista" reviewed by Farrell Lowe


How refreshing and inspiring it is to hear a recording like Danza Imprevista. The level of musicianship, sincerity, and compositional verve is immediately apparent from the opening notes of the opening track. Here is an excellent example of a quintet speaking as one voice. The commitment that this group brings to these compositions is what brings ...

Joao Lencastre: Communion One!

Read "Communion One!" reviewed by Farrell Lowe


Drummer Joao Lencastre's Communion One! opens with Ornette Coleman's “Lonely Woman.". It is a curious and interesting take on the tune, starting with a piano cadenza and introduction to the melody, then the opening builds slowly with bass, drums, and guitar. Finally, the theme is stated anew on trumpet with a rather bugle-like tone and approach. ...
