Read "Nephlokokkygia 1992" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Registrato nel corso del tour in terra bulgara datato 1992 (quattro sezioni, ciascuna da una località diversa, la più lunga di poco meno di un quarto d'ora), questo prezioso album coglie all'opera due liberi improvvisatori mitteleuropei di comprovata fede e militanza come lo svizzero Hans Koch e il tedesco Paul Lovens, separati da un solo anno ...

Hans Koch & Paul Lovens: Nephlokokkygia 1992

Read "Nephlokokkygia 1992" reviewed by Mark Corroto


This live recording from a tour through Bulgaria in 1992 begs the questions: why Bulgaria? and, most importantly, why are there not more recordings from Hans Koch and Paul Lovens? Nephlokokkygia or “CloudCuckooLand" is seeing the light of day for the first time as, during the pandemic year of 2020, Koch edited tape recordings of the ...

Jacques Demierre: The Well-Measured Piano

Read "The Well-Measured Piano" reviewed by John Eyles


Pianist Jacques Demierre's 2019 must be judged a success because of the release of Willisau (Jazzwerkstatt, 2019) by his new quartet—alongside trio members Urs Leimgruber and Barre Phillips plus new member Thomas Lehn—as well as his first duo album Incunabulum (Herbal Records, 2019) with Hans Koch. By comparison, his solo recording The Well-Measured Piano rather slipped ...

Hans Koch / Jacques Demierre: Incunabulum

Read "Incunabulum" reviewed by John Eyles


Although their discographies are both liberally sprinkled with duo recordings, this album seems to be the first time that the Swiss pair of reed man Hans Koch and keyboardist Jacques Demierre have recorded together as a duo. Both have been members of Insub Meta Orchestra and, for a period, were simultaneously in the ensemble long enough ...

Barry Guy: Back to the Drawing-Board (Part 3)

Read "Barry Guy: Back to the Drawing-Board (Part 3)" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 One of the things which may strike the listener on hearing the London Jazz Composers' Orchestra for the first time is just how much volume Guy is able to draw from just seventeen to twenty players. Some other big bands sound almost insipid in comparison. There ...

Barry Guy New Orchestra: Amphi - Radio Rondo

Read "Barry Guy New Orchestra: Amphi - Radio Rondo" reviewed by John Sharpe


One of the most noteworthy releases of 2013 was the Barry Guy New Orchestra's Mad Dogs (Not Two), a five disc compendium which collected largely freeform meetings between various subsets of the 11-piece company during their 2010 residency in Krakow. However even that copious set offered only a partial view of the Orchestra's range, a deficiency ...
