Mankwe Ndosi, Marc Johnson & Damien Kingston

Read "Mankwe Ndosi, Marc Johnson & Damien Kingston" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Mankwe Ndosi is not a singer (more like a true vocal artist!!!) that was familiar to me, but she certainly is now. Her recording Felt/Not Said is strikingly different. She's from Minneapolis, not that far from Chicago, the home of the AACM, and that's where Ndosi set out to incorporate AACM influences to her African roots ...

Devin Gray, Benoit Delbecq and Oh! Canada

Read "Devin Gray, Benoit Delbecq and Oh! Canada" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


With this show's air date falling on July 1st, Canada Day, I decided I best get all patriotic, eh, and program a wide variety of Canadian artists in the second half to celebrate Canadian jazz. In the first part there are tunes from new releases by Benoit Delbecq, the trio of Devin Gray, Ralph Alessi and ...

Broun Fellinis, Eric Revis, Luke Stewart and More

Read "Broun Fellinis, Eric Revis, Luke Stewart and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


A trip to the mystical island of Boohaabia (you know, the one near the Oasis of Surprise), is the final stop in this show, courtesy of the Broun Fellinis, but before arriving to destination there are stops at several great new releases, like those of American bassists Eric Revis' excellent Slip Knots Through a Looking Glass ...

Five Blokes at the Vortex

Read "Five Blokes at the Vortex" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This episode of One Man's Jazz features an entire full set of music recorded in March at the Vortex Club in London. Originally the gig was set for Louis Moholo's Four Blokes , but when the veteran drummer fell ill at home in South Africa, the band asked the fine English drummer Mark Sanders to fill ...

Kevin Sun, Roadworks, Anansi Trio and More

Read "Kevin Sun, Roadworks, Anansi Trio and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Saxophonists are all over this episode. Australia's Julien Wilson provides two different settings to display his formidable talents, and so does New York's Kevin Sun. Swiss alto player Christoph Gallio made his One Man's Jazz debut with his trio, Day & Taxi, but this time he's back with a larger and freer ensemble, Roadworks. You'll hear ...

Day and Taxi, Adam Rudolph, Harish Raghavan and More

Read "Day and Taxi,  Adam Rudolph, Harish Raghavan and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


First out of the mixed bag of audio treats this week (it's Halloween after all!) is a track from Oliver Lake's first recording 43 years ago Ntu: The Point from Which Creation Begins. I haven't played Oliver in a while and that seemed like a good place to begin catching up. Adam Rudolph's epic project, Ragmala, ...

Tomeka Reid Quartet, Piero Bittolo Bon & Ratchet Orchestra

Read "Tomeka Reid Quartet, Piero Bittolo Bon & Ratchet Orchestra" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


I guess this episode could be termed a “friendly" one, as it just so happens a number of my musical friends have new releases out for sampling, so I dove right in. Toronto drummer Nick Fraser has an excellent album out with Tony Malaby and Kris Davis and they open the show. Violist Ig Henneman from ...

Glen Hall, Bernie Koenig: Overheard Conversations

Read "Overheard Conversations" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


È una duo improvisation abbastanza allo stato brado, quella praticata dall'accoppiata canadese composta dal polifiatista Glen Hall e dal batterista e filosofo (lo è diventato nel quindicennio in cui non ha potuto suonare a causa di un incidente) Bernie Koenig. Lo è, soprattutto, allorché Hall imbraccia i sassofoni e Koenig siede dietro i tamburi. Come sassofonista, ...
