Mark Murphy: An Essential Top Ten Albums

Read "Mark Murphy: An Essential Top Ten Albums" reviewed by Peter Jones


Revered by jazz singers the world over, Mark Murphy is barely known to the general public--which is curious, since he enjoyed a recording career that lasted more than half a century, made 48 albums in his lifetime, and played thousands of gigs with hundreds of musicians from Norway to Australia. A notoriously mercurial and secretive character, ...

Kristen Lee Sergeant: Smolder

Read "Smolder" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Sometimes it takes an entire album, or even a few, to appreciate an artist's depth. But in the case of vocalist Kristen Lee Sergeant, you can get there in a song.

Albert Mangelsdorff: Albert Mangelsdorff And His Friends

Read "Albert Mangelsdorff And His Friends" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody

Read "Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody" reviewed by Maxim Micheliov


In memory of Dominic Duval: 1945-2016. This article was first published in October 2010. Bassist Dominic Duval is a mystery to many—even to those interested in free music. Seemingly emerging out of nowhere in the mid-1990s, over the course of 15 years he has built a formidable discography, firmly establishing him as one of ...

Francy Boland - Kenny Clarke - Jimmy Woode: Playing with the Trio

Read "Playing with the Trio" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


È davvero encomiabile l'attività dell'etichetta milanese Ishtar, che affianca alla produzione di artisti contemporanei un pregevole lavoro di riedizione di album da tempo introvabili. Ora, sotto il marchio della sussidiaria Schema Rearward, pubblica un raro disco del trio di Francy Boland con Kenny Clarke e Jimmy Woode che già all'epoca (parliamo del 1967) ebbe scarsa diffusione ...
