Jeff Platz / Max Goldman / Brendan Carniaux: With Orbit

Read "With Orbit" reviewed by Mark Corroto


If we had to categorize the sounds of Jeff Platz, Max Goldman, and Brendan Carniaux, we might call it sneaky music. Not sneaky as in deceitful, more like wily or sly. Partly composed, mostly improvised, With Orbit trades in the art of sleight of hand. For instance the opening track “Lost To History" leads off with ...

Igor Osypov Quartet: Dream Delivery

Read "Dream Delivery" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Igor Osypov's debut album, I (Unit Records, 2015), was quite promising in many ways. Yet, it was a snapshot of an artist still in the formative stages of the craft.

Fabio Delvò: Rastplatz

Read "Rastplatz" reviewed by Dave Wayne


I became aware of Fabio Delvo's music via his recordings with guitarist Jeff Platz.

The title of Delvo's second album as a leader, Rastplatz, isn't a tribute to ...

Flametet: A General History of Flame

Read "A General History of Flame" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


Sotto il grazioso appellativo di Flametet, per un album dal titolo altrettanto intrigante, sono riuniti sei musicisti guidati dal bassista Kit Demos, tra i quali l'unico nome che ci era conosciuto (e apprezzato) è quello del pianista Pandelis Karayorgis, qui impegnato in qualità di ospite del quintetto, solo alle tastiere Wurlitzer. L'organico si muove soprattutto come ...
