Angles 9: Beyond Us

Read "Beyond Us" reviewed by John Sharpe


Swedish saxophonist Martin Küchen's versatile Angles agglomeration has appeared in assorted sizes from a trio up to a nonet. But whatever the dimensions, it possesses the familiar virtues of driving riffs, explosive soloing, and elemental yet affecting melodies.

Angles 9: Disappeared Behind the Sun

Read "Disappeared Behind the Sun" reviewed by John Sharpe


On the sixth release from reedman Martin Küchen's mid-sized Angles ensemble, all the winning traits so evident on previous outings are still present and correct: heart wrenching melodies, huge foot-tapping riffs, sweeping chorales and adventurous raw soloing, not least by the leader himself. Many of the same top notch players remain on board, notably trombonist Mats ...

Martin Küchen, Johan Berthling, Steve Noble: Night in Europe

Read "Night in Europe" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello


Dopo quasi cinquant'anni di pratiche e di forti testimonianze registrate, l'improvvisazione in Europa sembra avere codificato lessici e grammatiche, sia che si tratti di percorsi che si riallacciano più naturalmente alla sperimentazione del campo della composizione musicale Novecentesca, sia che -come accade nel caso del disco in questione -il modello New Thing di matrice più schiettamente ...
