David Sanborn, Alan Braufman & Tahmela Six

Read "David Sanborn, Alan Braufman & Tahmela Six" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


David Sanborn's passing really stirred up a lot of memories of top-down cruisin' on the road, stereo blasting, and a lot of good times.

Darren Johnston, Rossi / Hess / Moran & Theo Jorgensmann

Read "Darren Johnston, Rossi / Hess / Moran & Theo Jorgensmann" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This episode of One Man's Jazz is a very mixed bag.

Read "Spinifex, Greene / Smith / Moses & Devin Brahja Waldman  Ra Kalam Bob Moses" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Myra Melford, Eric Plaks & Music For Ukraine

Read "Myra Melford, Eric Plaks & Music For Ukraine" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Myra Melford's new recording, For The Love Of Fire And Water, is an excellent one. It's a multi-part suite performed by Melford, Ingrid Laubrock, Mary Halvorson, Tomeka Reid and Susie Ibarra. It's one of the feature recordings in a decidedly internationally-flavored show. New York pianist Eric Plaks contributes music from four of his groups, German saxophonist ...

Joshua White, Mara Rosenbloom & Australian Art Orchestra

Read "Joshua White, Mara Rosenbloom & Australian Art Orchestra" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


It took me a while to get pianist Joshua White's album 13 Short Stories but it was worth the wait. White and his West Coast quartet are very, very good. The Australian Art Orchestra has become an institution in the Australian creative music scene. They're now directed by trumpeter and composer Peter Knight; their latest, Sometimes ...

Favourite Releases of 2019

Read "Favourite Releases of 2019" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This episode features some of my favourite recordings released in 2019, chosen from a year of some pretty damn fine music. It always seems that I tend toward bassist-led sessions, and that's the case again, with great recordings from Carlos Bica, Torbjorn Zetterberg and the Miles Perkin Quartet for starters. As well, more women artists appear ...

Don Cherry Tribute, Four Visions, Alberto Pinton & Earprint

Read "Don Cherry Tribute, Four Visions, Alberto Pinton & Earprint" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


The late trumpeter Don Cherry had and still has a huge influence on the creative music scene, from his work with Ornette, Coltrane, Old And New Dreams, CODONA, and Carla Bley to his exploration and fusion of world music. That influence led Italian drummer/percussionist, Cristiano Calcagnile, to form an ensemble to perform a tribute to Cherry ...
