Two new releases on ezz-thetics

Read "Two new releases on ezz-thetics" reviewed by John Eyles

In recent years the “revisited" series of albums on the ezz-thetics label has been so praised and successful that some jazz afficionados probably associate the label more with albums of classic Charlie Parker or Albert Ayler recordings than with releases of new music on the label. Nonetheless, as it has done for decades (in various guises--Hat ...

Jacques Demierre: The Hills Shout

Read "The Hills Shout" reviewed by John Eyles

Swiss pianist Jacques Demierre has a relatively small recording history considering that it dates back to June 1984. Along the way, it includes collaborations with such luminaries as Cyril Bondi, Sylvie Corvoisier, d'incise, Barry Guy, Insub Meta Orchestra, Hans Koch, Urs Leimgruber, Lucas Niggli, and Barre Phillips, in such fine recordings as Brainforest (Intakt, 2006) by ...

Hans Koch / Frantz Loriot / Jonas Kocher: Stranger Becoming

Read "Stranger Becoming" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The title says it all, Stranger Becoming. Not “becoming stranger," but Stranger Becoming as in unusual yet attractive or tasteful. That certainly is a perfect descriptor for the music generated by the trio of Hans Koch(clarinet), Frantz Loriot (viola), and Jonas Kocher (accordion). All three have a background in classical music which serves as the foundation ...

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 ...
