Federico Ughi

Born:

Rachel Musson: Dreamsing

Read "Dreamsing" reviewed by John Sharpe

Musson has found a mentor in 577 Records label boss Federico Ughi, a collaborator during his sojourn in London in the early 2000s.

Gunter Gruner: The Invisible Landscape

Read "The Invisible Landscape" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


An ardent student of no less a legend than Andrew Cyrille, drummer/composer Gunter Gruner's fondness for jumpy, adroit, noir landscapes comes with a decisively Pink Panther stroll: lanky, animated, wise-ass but humble. His side-street detours to survey The Invisible Landscape involve more than the usual walk down free-form lanes. With downtown, free-jazz giant Daniel ...

The Telepathic Band: Telepathic Mysteries, Vol. 1

Read "Telepathic Mysteries, Vol. 1" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


For a quintet grounded in free association, The Telepathic Band sure as hell sound like a disembodied orchestra tuning up to go rogue. Wafting from absolute to adagio a piacere (as they say in Italian or, as we say in our less romantic and crasser Anglo tongue, as they please), the seemingly indefatigable saxophonist Daniel Carter ...
