Microscopic Septet: Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down to Me, Jazz Passengers: Still Life with Troube, Papanosh: Chicken in a Bottle

Read "Microscopic Septet: Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down to Me, Jazz Passengers: Still Life with Troube, Papanosh: Chicken in a Bottle" reviewed by Vic Albani

Non credo che i puristi del caso si possano stupire di una recensione tripla che non vuole porre in contrapposizione tre lavori discografici afferenti ad una similare idea di base, bensì presentarli entro un unico pacchetto di “meraviglie contemporanee." Anche perché questi tre dischi potrebbero essere certamente acquistati ad occhi bendati quale brillante testimonianza di alcune ...

Joe Fiedler Trio: I'm In

Read "I'm In" reviewed by Troy Collins

I'm In is trombonist Joe Fiedler's fourth recording with his longstanding trio and the second on his Multiphonics Music imprint. This session marks a departure of sorts for Fiedler's adventurous three-piece, finding the trombonist, new bassist Rob Jost and stalwart drummer Michael Sarin exploring more traditional blues and jazz forms than heard on the group's previous ...

Roy Nathanson's Sotto Voce: Complicated Day

Read "Complicated Day" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

Roy Nathanson, Curtis Fowlkes, Sam Bardfeld... Non sono i Jazz Passengers, peraltro recentemente “Reunited," ma poco ci manca. Sono i Sotto Voce, band di cui Roy Nathanson è unico leader, e che si muove su territori simili a quelli dei Jazz Passengers ma con maggiore enfasi sull'orecchiabilità, sulle voci, sulla parola (tutti i brani dell'album sono ...

Ceramic Dog: Your Turn

Read "Your Turn" reviewed by Troy Collins

Five years have passed since the release of Party Intellectuals, the 2008 Pi Recordings debut of Ceramic Dog, a power trio led by legendary Downtown guitarist Marc Ribot. Much has changed in the ensuing years, including the recording industry--a subject fervently addressed on Your Turn, the ensemble's eclectic sophomore effort.

Elliott Sharp Trio: Aggregat

Read "Aggregat" reviewed by Troy Collins

Long revered for his innovative approach to the electric guitar, composer Elliott Sharp's laudable but lesser known skills as a saxophonist finally come to the fore on Aggregat. Accompanied by bassist Brad Jones and drummer Ches Smith, Sharp performs on soprano and tenor saxophones, in addition to his main axe. In light of Sharp's oeuvre, this ...

Jazz Passengers: Reunited

Read "Reunited" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Don't mistake the music made by The Jazz Passengers as merely camp or burlesque send-ups. Sure, trombonist Curtis Fowlkes dons the persona of the infamous “Peaches," from the duo Peaches and Herb, for the 1970's hit, “Reunited." The irony dissolves underneath Roy Nathanson and Fowlkes' spoken/sung duet with Sam Bardfeld's pizzicato violin and Marc Ribot's now-patented ...

Critically Acclaimed Band, The Jazz Passengers Set to Release "Reunited" on October 12

Ensemble's First Release in Over a Decade Features Special Guests Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry, and Marc Ribot “The Jazz Passengers make jazz that's smart and witty and raucous. For all its unpredictable forms and modernist dissonances, the music comes across as boisterous fun. The Passengers' basic sound is that of a densely dissonant hard-bop band, updating ...

Read "Foot Job Band and Tongs: between porno, rock and a jazz place" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Back in 1980s and early 1990s in New York, musicians were reinventing jazz and the “downtown scene," as it was called, was focused on the The Knitting Factory club. Artists like saxophonists John Zorn, John Lurie and Thomas Chapin, guitarist Marc Ribot and cellist Tom Cora became famous. While they were schooled in the traditional, their ...
