Fabian Willman Trio: Balance

Read "Balance" reviewed by Doug Collette


Based solely on over ten years playing with the brilliant pianist/composer Brad Mehldau, drummer Jeff Ballard brings a certain cachet with him. Aiding in no small measure to retain a purity that mirrors the cover graphics (by Doris Reimann) as much as this album title, he lends as much (more?) distinction to his work on Fabian ...

Anders Koppel: Mulberry Street Symphony

Read "Mulberry Street Symphony" reviewed by Doug Collette


A father-son collaboration at its most sublime, Mulberry Street Symphony is a natural and logical extension of saxophonist/composer Benjamin Koppel's eclectic sets of funk and free improvisation The Ultimate Soul & Jazz Revue (Cowbell Music, 2020) and The Art of the Quartet (Cowbell Music, 2020). The prolific Dane wisely aligns himself here with redoubtable counterparts in ...

Three-Layer Cake: Stove Top

Read "Stove Top" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


If nothing else, the trio of Mike Pride (drums, marimba, glockenspiel, bells, organ), Brandon Seabrook (guitar, banjo, tapes) and Mike Watt (bass) deserves a “truth in advertising" award, because Stove Top, their first collaboration, is precisely that: a three-layer instrumental cake. Stove Top began cooking when Pride appeared as a guest on Watt's podcast. ...

Red Kite: Apophenian Bliss

Read "Apophenian Bliss" reviewed by Doug Collette


Even more so than on Red Kite's wholly excellent eponymous debut, the follow-up release, Apophenian Bliss, by this Norwegian quartet illustrates how fine are the lines between metal, prog and fusion music. The powerful dynamism this band commands generates thoughts of a more free-form version of the electric Return To Forever quartets, electric music for the ...

Mareike Wiening: Future Memories

Read "Future Memories" reviewed by Mark Corroto


It is interesting that in today's creative music world, a jazz drummer cannot just be a jazz drummer. There are so many great drummers that they have to also be composers, band leaders, and sometimes van drivers. A short list includes Tyshawn Sorey, Allison Miller, Ches Smith, and Terri Lyne Carrington. Add to that list Mareike ...

Magnet Animals: Fake Dudes

Read "Fake Dudes" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Its press release refers to this band as a “combustible beat-skronk" unit for its follow-up to the 2016 Butterfly Killer album, where guitarist Todd Clouser iterates his poetry under the semblance of a rebel using a small megaphone. It seems as if he could be on a corner somewhere in Greenwich Village, NYC., to forewarn the ...

Lyle Mays: Eberhard

Read "Eberhard" reviewed by John Kelman


When pianist, keyboardist, synthesist and composer Lyle Mays passed away at the far too young age of 66 following a long battle with a recurring (but, to this day, undisclosed) illness in February 2020, it was a major loss for his fans. It was an especially deep body blow to those who'd followed his decades-long work ...

J. Peter Schwalm & Markus Reuter: Aufbruch

Read "Aufbruch" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


German electro-acoustic composer J. Peter Schwalm is probably best known for collaborating with Brian Eno on Drawn From Life (Opal, 2001) and other projects. More recently, he created How We Fall (RareNoise, 2018) and Neuzeit (RareNoise, 2020), the latter a collaboration with Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen. Touch guitarist and composer Markus Reuter has been prolific, recent ...

J. Peter Schwalm & Markus Reuter: Aufbruch

Read "Aufbruch" reviewed by Doug Collette


The first recorded collaboration between J. Peter Schwalm and Markus Reuter, Aufbruch, is one of those very rare and unusual albums that unobtrusively, almost surreptitiously, wends its way into the subconscious. It compels repeated and often frequent replays, not so much to comprehend the arcane sounds, but to simply become immersed in the moods and textures ...

Franco Ambrosetti: Lost Within You

Read "Lost Within You" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


Lost Within You is a masterpiece of smoldering passion and beauty ignited by the exquisite trumpet and flugelhorn melodies of Franco Ambrosetti. Ambrosetti assembled an enviable ensemble: bassist Scott Colley and drummer Jack DeJohnette in the rhythm section, plus guitarist John Scofield, and Renee Rosnes and Uri Caine switching turns as pianist. But the ...
