3x3: Piano Trios: July 2022

Read "3x3: Piano Trios: July 2022" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Florian Hoefner Trio Desert Bloom Alma Records 2022 If the title of First Spring appropriately represented the Florian Hoefner Trio's first emergence, Desert Bloom is the picture of a colorful summer to follow--warmer, more vibrant, and at the same time more settled. As on their debut, the trio shows off an ...

Guitarists in the Age of Isolation

Read "Guitarists in the Age of Isolation" reviewed by Geno Thackara


The Joel Newton Situation New Now Self Produced 2022 Since the first year of Covid had left everyone suddenly making music alone, of course it was inevitable that the trend of isolation albums would eventually give way to the out-of-isolation album as the world moved into partial circulation. For the Joel ...

Stephen Philip Harvey: Big Band Superhero In the Making

Read "Stephen Philip Harvey: Big Band Superhero In the Making" reviewed by John Chacona


There's a passage in “Party Song," the concluding cut on the Stephen Philip Harvey Jazz Orchestra's debut recording, Smash! (Next Level, 2022) where the band claps hands, whoops and cheers over a syncopated praise-band saxophone riff. It's pure, unbridled joy and just like the exuberance implied by the exclamation point in the album's title, it's an ...

Sam Reider: Petrichor

Read "Petrichor" reviewed by Mark Corroto


There is something very George Gershwin-like about Petrichor from pianist Sam Reider. He recorded this solo session after moving back to the Bay area from New York where he studied at Columbia University and did a deep dive into American folk music. Like Gershwin, his playing is informed by not only jazz, but classical and popular ...

Billy Mohler: Anatomy

Read "Anatomy" reviewed by John Chacona


Can we please retire the old cliché about jazz from jny: Los Angeles being limp, wan and bland? One listen to pianist Cameron Graves' slamming metal-jazz or to the jittery complexity of David Binney's recent releases should be enough to torch that outdated canard. Now comes bassist Billy Mohler with Anatomy, 43 minutes of amped-up, torqued-out ...

Tyshawn Sorey Trio: Mesmerism

Read "Mesmerism" reviewed by Mark Corroto


To say that Mesmerism by the Tyshawn Sorey Trio is a departure from the drummer's regular programming is an understatement. Rather than perform his own compositions, he has assembled this trio to perform some jazz classics and standards. Sorey only held a brief rehearsal before recording this studio session. Typically, he prefers intricate arrangements and repeated ...

Jacob Garchik: Assembly

Read "Assembly" reviewed by John Chacona


Trombonist Jacob Garchik has an interest in musical subtraction. His 2012 release The Heavens: The Atheist Gospel Trombone Album (Yestereve Records) presented religious music stripped of religion. Clear Line (Yestereve Records) from 2020 featured a 13-piece big band with no rhythm section. Now comes Assembly, an inquiry into what a jazz quintet sounds like when added ...

Jacob Garchik: Assembly

Read "Assembly" reviewed by Mark Corroto


As a consequence of the global pandemic, we have been schooled in the science of virology. Under certain conditions viruses mutate and reorganize into something completely new. That is bad. Mutations can also be heard in the adventurous music of Jacob Garchik. That is good. His trombone leads his Atheist Gospel Trombone Album, his big band, ...

From Generation to Generation, A New Collection Transcends Borders and Barriers

Read "From Generation to Generation, A New Collection Transcends Borders and Barriers" reviewed by John Chacona


The release of the three-disc set The Concert for Bangladesh (Apple) in 1971 established a template for the charity benefit album that is still followed to this day: multiple discs in lavish packaging, a grab-bag of songs and most importantly, a red-carpet lineup of established, often older stars, one of whom was invariably the organizer of ...
