Gypsy Schaeffer: New Album

Read "New Album" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Suonare per il piacere di farlo. Un-due-tre-quattro. Pronti? Via! Non c'è gran che di cerebrale in questo nuovo album dei Gypsy Schaeffer. Si espone brevemente il tema, e poi ampio spazio all'improvvisazione, senza troppi freni o sovrastrutture. Senza gabbie stilistiche. L'album si muove con disinvoltura tra swing e free, tra bop e contemporanea. C'è, in questo ...

Gypsy Schaeffer: New Album

Read "New Album" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza


Gypsy Schaeffer, the foursome made up by Joel Yennior (trombone), Andy Voelker (saxophones), Chris Punis (drums) and Jef Charland (bass) calls its third CD quite simply New Album.

Gypsy Schaeffer: Portamental

Read "Portamental" reviewed by J Hunter


It makes sense that Gypsy Schaeffer is named for a New Orleans whorehouse, albeit one that boasted Sidney Bechet and Jelly Roll Morton as parlor musicians. Reedman Andy Voelker and trombonist Joel Yennior have a sound and a dynamic that would fit into almost any NOLA unit, and the lack of a piano in this group ...

Gypsy Schaeffer: Portamental

Read "Portamental" reviewed by Jim Santella


Based in Boston, Gypsy Schaeffer is a modern jazz quartet that marches to a different drummer. The unique and forward-leaning foursome brings a fresh sound to the forum, exploring jazz from various angles. The band's instrumentation stands apart from the hoi polloi of jazz. Without a chording instrument like the piano or guitar, Gypsy ...

Gypsy Schaeffer: Portamental

Read "Portamental" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


The Gypsy Schaeffer of New Orleans fame was a bordello where, of course, music could be heard, including the live and in-person sounds of jazz legend Jelly Roll Morton, among others. The Gypsy Schaeffer of Boston is a pianoless quartet featuring trombonist Joel Yennior (of Either/Orchestra fame), saxophonist Andy Voelker, bassist Jef Charland and drummer Chris ...
