In 2005 "All About Jazz NY" magazine praised his performance observing that "Joe Hertenstein's drums seem to be shaping the music from the bottom up", and in 2011 “Hertenstein practices that loose time-keeping so prevalent in Europe that the ignorant use to claim that an entire continent can’t swing.” In November 2010 the Portuguese label Clean Feed Records released his remarkable debut album as a leader and composer “HNH” featuring Thomas Heberer (tp) and Pascal Niggenkemper (b). In 2009, the German government honored the further development of his trio "HNH" with a composition stipend to fund the recording of their next album "POLYLEMMA" which was released on the Canadian label Red Toucan in June 2011.

New Video: Bill Evans, 1975

Two weeks ago, the following video went up at YouTube of Bill Evans and Eddie Gomez performing a 30-minute set in July 1975 at the Antibes/Juan-les-Pins Jazz Festival on the French Riviera. As you'll hear, Evans and Gomez sounded fantastic—clear, spry, poetic and with a swinging snap. What's more, the set was Nardis-free! The songs were ...

Gebhard Ullmann, Hans Lüdemann, Oliver Potratz, Eric Schaefer: Mikropuls

Read "Mikropuls" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Nel corso dei decenni, Gebhard Ullmann ci ha abituati particolarmente bene, per cui questo pur ottimo album, inciso nel corso del Jazzreis Berlin 2017 e condiviso, in ditta, con gli alti tre membri del quartetto che l'ha realizzato, ci pare normale, nella sua limitata progettualità, per un suono (di gruppo, ma anche individuale) magari anche più ...

Christy Doran: Undercurrent - Live at Theater Gutersloh

Read "Undercurrent - Live at Theater Gutersloh" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Irish-born, Lucerne-based guitarist Christy Doran is as versatile as he is prolific. From the beguiling duo collaboration with Chinese pipa virtuoso Yang Jing that was No. 9 (Leo Records, 2013) and the swaggering alt-rock of New Bag's Mesmerized (Double Moon Records, 2013) to Bunter Hund's genre-busting, accordion-cum-guitar driven Walkin' The Dog (Unit Records 2014) and the ...

Martial Solal: My One And Only Love: Live at Theater Gütersloh

Read "My One And Only Love: Live at Theater Gütersloh" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

English poet Samuel Johnson famously and accurately remarked that “He that runs against Time has an antagonist not subject to casualties." With that statement, Johnson essentially cut to the ultimate truth behind man's battle with mortality, the powers of change, and the swift dominance of the aging process. But he didn't say it all. What he ...
