Funk Tunes and Love Songs from QFTF

Read "Funk Tunes and Love Songs from QFTF" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Initialzündung Experience of Life QFTF 2019 Life of course is too sprawling and complicated to fit into any tidy box, and so it's no surprise that this Experience of Life is much the same. The members of Init like their groove-jazz at a spry mid-tempo with fun interplay at ...

3x3: Piano Trios: April 2020

Read "3x3: Piano Trios: April 2020" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Andy Milne The Re:Mission Contrology Records 2020 Though Andy Milne actually hasn't recorded in the classic trio format before, you'd never know it just from The Re:Mission. He's been no slouch in many other settings, from supporting Cassandra Wilson or Steve Coleman to the genre-mashingly ambitious Dapp Theory quintet. Having always ...

Jon Stickley Trio: Scripting the Flip

Read "Scripting the Flip" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Mere flips are child's play to the Jon Stickley Trio; their performances are more the equivalent of tumbling somersaults and almost physically-impossible stunt dives. Scripting the Flip shows that their intricate jigsaw-puzzle pieces are as painstakingly well-scripted as ever, though never to the point of suffocating their chemistry and in-the-moment playfulness. With new-ish drummer Hunter Deacon ...

Bite-Sized Morsels

Read "Bite-Sized Morsels" reviewed by Geno Thackara

In among the more usual full-length offerings (arguably one ideal standard for collections of music), it's also good not to overlook the appeal of servings in smaller sizes... Larry Tamanini Front & Center Outer Marker2020 Somewhere at the intersection of urbane contemporary and old-time retro lies a sweet spot ...

Jazzrausch Bigband: Beethoven's Breakdown

Read "Beethoven's Breakdown" reviewed by Geno Thackara

The big names of bebop made a splash in the music world by brashly turning convention on its head. Black Sabbath first catalyzed heavy metal into the force we know today. Punk was invented by either Link Wray, the New York Dolls or (depending on how you look at it) Cheech and Chong. Still, for taking ...

International Flavors

Read "International Flavors" reviewed by Geno Thackara

It's a tour through several spots around the globe with this batch--sometimes a leisurely tour, sometimes a whirlwind, but with each stop offering a wealth of lovely sounds and tones. Gilfema Three Sounderscore 2020 Lionel Loueke, Massimo Biolcati and Ferenc Nemeth have an impressive number of musical endeavors and ...

Thana Alexa: ONA

Read "ONA" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Thana Alexa's voice contains a world of sound, and that is without even mentioning the globe-spanning musical trappings which surround it. Hearing her is like watching a thunderstorm or maybe a wild hawk in flight. She doesn't just sing but uses her voice as an expressive precision instrument, in much the same way all the tones ...

Høiby, Hart and Neame: Thinking Big

Read "Høiby, Hart and Neame: Thinking Big" reviewed by Geno Thackara

No one's ever accused the members of Phronesis of lacking imagination. This isn't the space to talk about that particular trio, as it comes during a gap in the action, but two of its members concurrently demonstrate that they're just as restless even in some very different contexts. Jasper Høiby Planet B ...

Bruce Hornsby and yMusic at the Merriam Theater

Read "Bruce Hornsby and yMusic at the Merriam Theater" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Bruce Hornsby and yMusic The Merriam Theater jny: Philadelphia, PAMarch 4, 2020 “It's, what, our fourth show? We should have it together by now," Bruce Hornsby laughed during one between-song lull while a couple of his cohorts quickly tuned up. The joke was that he'd forgotten the planned order of songs ...

Teymur Phell: Master Volume

Read "Master Volume" reviewed by Geno Thackara

This crackling debut from Teymur Phell is a hearty, eclectic and loud funk-fusion party. He sets the tone right away with “Zero to Sixty"--a title that's actually a bit misleading since it kicks off already at sixty mph—and shows that he knows his way around a bass, and also has plenty of use for one with ...
