Rodrigo Amado Northern Liberties: We Are Electric

Read "We Are Electric" reviewed by John Sharpe


Portuguese saxophonist Rodrigo Amado hits the jackpot with the debut by his Northern Liberties quartet. He's found gifted collaborators in the Norwegian threesome of trumpeter Thomas Johansson, drummer Gard Nilssen and bassist Jon Rune Strøm. Amado's preferred domain is muscular free jazz. It's territory he's thoroughly explored with his Motion Trio, supplemented by guests like trumpeter ...

Rodrigo Amado Northern Liberties: We Are Electric

Read "We Are Electric" reviewed by Troy Dostert


By all accounts, 2021 was a very good year for Rodrigo Amado. One of the leading lights of the Portuguese avant-garde, the indefatigable tenor saxophonist first released The Field (NoBusiness), featuring his Motion Trio (with cellist Miguel Mira and drummer Gabriel Ferrandini) alongside guest pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach, and Let the Free Be Men (Trost), with ...

Jonas Cambien Trio: Nature Hath Painted The Body

Read "Nature Hath Painted The Body" reviewed by John Sharpe


On its third outing, Norwegian-based Belgian pianist Jonas Cambien's Trio again sticks to the successful gambits which distinguished A Zoology of the Future (Clean Feed, 2016) and We Must Mustn't We (Clean Feed, 2018), but with enough novel switcheroos to keep things fresh. Joining the leader once more is reedman Andre Roligheten (also a member of ...

Friends & Neighbors: What's Next

Read "What's Next" reviewed by John Sharpe


With its fourth release, the Scandinavian quintet Friends & Neighbors, whose moniker references Ornette Coleman's album of near enough the same name, continues to find fertile soil in the American free jazz furrow. This time out the unchanged quintet of trumpeter Thomas Johansson, reedman André Roligheten, pianist Oscar Grönberg, bassist Jon Rune Strøm and percussionist Tollef ...

Friends & Neighbors: What’s Next?

Read "What’s Next?" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Giunto al suo quarto album (dal 2011), il quintetto norvegese Friends & Neighbors conferma la propria predilezione per un discorso corale, fortemente condiviso, pur aprendo ovviamente i dovuti spazi agli spunti del singolo. Nonostante la presenza del pianoforte (e se vogliamo del sax tenore al posto del contralto), il referente più palpabile appare ...
