Harold Danko: His Own Sound, His Own Time

Read "Harold Danko: His Own Sound, His Own Time" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The famous sculptor, Henry Moore, hit the nail on the head when he said: “there's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it." This statement certainly rings true in the case of pianist and composer, Harold Danko. Even though he has retired from a long and distinguished career ...

Christian Artmann: Our Story

Read "Our Story" reviewed by Troy Dostert

There are a number of different stories woven into Our Story, flautist Christian Artmann's first offering since 2015. Quotations in the liner notes from Zen sages Thich Nhat Hanh and Yasutani Roshi point to Artmann's Buddhist faith, but the fifth cut of the record, “Amazing Grace," makes a bit of room for the Christian narrative as ...

Stream: Second Stream

Read "Second Stream" reviewed by Troy Dostert

It is always a pleasure to hear a working band. Not a one-off meeting, or an all-star project hastily thrown together, both of which often promise more than they deliver--but a genuine team of musicians committed to a shared musical vision, one that can be honed and refined over the long course of a true collaborative ...

Read "Budd Kopman's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Of the seventy or so albums I was fortunate to review this year (with many still waiting in the wings), the releases below (in chronological order) are those that moved me the most and hence that I remember the clearest, even after a year.

Frank Kimbrough: Solstice

Read "Solstice" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Pianist Frank Kimbrough's latest offering, Solstice on the Pirouet label, is a joy from beginning to end. Pirouet is the home of some other fine piano trios, including those of Marc Copland (see Some Love Songs, Modinha, Voices and Night Whispers).

Frank Kimbrough: Solstice

Read "Solstice" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Pianist/composer Frank Kimbrough presents a trio album with only one of his originals, a reversal of his usual approach. He was a student of the late Paul Bley, and although there is no formal dedication the program has an air of homage about it. Kimbrough first heard three of the selections played by Bley's mid-60's trio. ...

Frank Kimbrough: Solstice

Read "Solstice" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

A stellar interlude of three-way instrumental interplay can be found on composer/conductor Maria Schneider's first masterpiece, Concert In The Garden (ArtistShare, 2004), on the set's title tune, beginning about five and a half minutes in. Ben Monder lays down a ghostly guitar solo that climbs to an eerie climax, as a handoff to pianist Frank Kimbrough, ...
