Matthew Shipp: The Piano Equation

Read "The Piano Equation" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

A sixtieth birthday might be greeted as a time of reflection, a looking back on a life well-lived. Or it might serve as a call to action, as it did for pianist Satoko Fujii as she celebrated her sixth trip around the sun by releasing twelve albums in 2018. Matthew Shipp also answers the call to ...

Dave Douglas: Dizzy Atmosphere: Dizzy Gillespie At Zero Gravity

Read "Dizzy Atmosphere: Dizzy Gillespie At Zero Gravity" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The distinctive trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie (1917-1993), with the idiosyncratic upward angle of its bell, is transformed into a starship on the cover of Dave Douglas' Dizzy Atmosphere: Dizzy Gillespie in Zero Gravity, seemingly soaring above the stratosphere, in Earth orbit. Douglas has a history of nodding to past greats: pianist Mary Lou Williams on Soul ...

Read "Massimo Biolcati: Positive Polymath, Cooperative Catalyst" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Benny Benack III: A Lot Of Livin' To Do

Read "A Lot Of Livin' To Do" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Benny Benack III does it all. A trumpeter, vocalist, writer and arranger with a swaggering soul and the chops to back up the panache, he's clearly done his fair share of living already. He may be young—only at the tail end of his twenties, believe it or not—but he seriously has his act together in every ...

Leo Sherman: Tonewheel

Read "Tonewheel" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Bassist Leo Sherman knows a thing or two about turns in tone connected to life, time, language and music. Born in Russia, in a repressive, antisemitic atmosphere that eventually drove his family from their homeland, he overcame several layers of adversity some 5,000 miles away, where he was raised in Baltimore, Maryland. There, he became fluent ...

Read "Derel Monteith, Trio and Solo" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Derel Monteith Trio Quantity of Life Self Produced 2019 The title phrase isn't quite the obvious one—isn't quality of life usually supposed to be the main thing?—but not to worry here, as Quantity of Life shows the Derel Monteith Trio offering plenty of both. The recording serves as an answer ...
