Julie Sassoon Quartet: Voyages

Read "Voyages" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


As on a high speed, downhill slalom chase, listeners are suddenly, nakedly and without poles hurled into “Missed Calls"; the opening burst of sublime energy and groupthink cracks Voyages wide open, sets the mad, determined pace and tone for a craftily organic, six-song, free-jazz adventure which never lets up. It is breakneck rhythm churning, keening, into ...

Julie Sassoon Quartet: Voyages

Read "Voyages" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Not all voyages involve smooth sailing. Indeed, pianist Julie Sassoon's Voyages opens on a blustery note. It is a quartet outing--as opposed to Sassoon's 2021 solo set, When You Can't go Outside...Go Inside (Jazzwerkstatt), with the pianist joined by reedman Lothar Ohlmeier, bassist Meirad Kneer and drummer Rudi Fischerlehner. The opener, “Missed Calls," sounds like a ...

Ab Baars, Meinard Kneer, Bill Elgart: thrīe thrēo drī

Read "thrīe thrēo drī" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The trio of Ab Baars, Meinard Kneer, and Bill Elgart obliges listeners to reflect on how they listen to freely improvised music, not in a concert setting where the listeners' attention is in effect captured, but the act of listening to a performance from recorded format. A fellow critic eschews records, saying that the experience is ...

Julie Sassoon: If You Can't Go Outside...Go Inside

Read "If You Can't Go Outside...Go Inside" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


As we've learned time and time again throughout this sick year, 2021, not many humans are ready to completely surrender themselves for the good of their fellow kind. So it's truly a beautiful thing when Berlin based pianist Julie Sassoon surrenders so completely to her instrument and the moment that, like a medium, reveals mysteries to ...

Julie Sassoon: If You Can't Go Outside...Go Inside

Read "If You Can't Go Outside...Go Inside" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


American novelist and short story writer Stephen King has said that he thinks his stories are “found things, like fossils in the ground...relics, part of an undiscovered pre-existing world." He goes on to say that, as a writer, it is his job to reveal as much of this fossil as he can. Interesting, and maybe true. ...

Andreas Willers 7 of 8: The Goldman Variations

Read "The Goldman Variations" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Disco composito, felicemente irregolare, questo del sestetto (in un caso settetto) diretto dal sessantatreenne chitarrista tedesco Andreas Willers, con le stimmate dell'opera largamente meditata, fortemente intenzionale, nella concezione così come nel gesto che ne accompagna la messa in pratica. Partenza al fulmicotone nel breve “Case of Need" e poi momenti più riflessivi, quasi sfuggenti, ma sempre ...
