Mark Corroto's Best Recordings Of 2021

Read "Mark Corroto's Best Recordings Of 2021" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Another year in jazz, and another year in global pandemic jazz. When we look back on these times, I believe we will refer to them much like the designations BC and AD (or BCE and CE, if you like). We'll ask, what was music like before masks and social distancing; and, remember when we squeezed together ...

Dave Rempis: The Covid Tapes

Read "The Covid Tapes" reviewed by John Sharpe


Like many during the pandemic, Chicago saxophonist Dave Rempis turned to novel outlets for his artistic expression. Some fine examples of that output are captured on the double album The Covid Tapes, which pleasingly alternates six unaccompanied performances from the practice room (of between 3 and 7 minutes), with four outdoor live outings (of between 16 ...

KUZU: All Your Ghosts In One Corner

Read "All Your Ghosts In One Corner" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The edge in which the trio Kuzu lays down the five live tracks on All Your Ghosts In One Corner is sharpened by an impending sense of foreboding that accompanied (and still accompanies) the COVID-19 pandemic. Recorded at the end of a tour in March 2020, on the eve of our social isolation with clubs and ...

Giancarlo Schiaffini & Sergio Armaroli and Kopasetic artists

Read "Giancarlo Schiaffini & Sergio Armaroli and Kopasetic artists" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Deconstructing one of the original deconstructers of jazz, Thelonious Monk, is no easy task, but the Italian duo of trombonist Giancarlo Schiaffini and percussionist Sergio Armaroli do exactly that on their new album Deconstructing Monk In Africa. It's one of the more unusual releases of late; you'll hear an excerpt from their extended work. Monk is ...

Kuzu: Purple Dark Opal

Read "Purple Dark Opal" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Thank your lucky stars that Kuzu's previous disc Hiljaisuus (Aerophonic/Astral Spirits, 2019) was not a one-off meeting. That recording, their first concert together in 2017, inspired the trio to tour and explore their brand of free jazz. Purple Dark Opal, recorded live in Milwaukee in October 2018, found the trio in the midst of an extended ...

Astral Spirits: Lifting the Spirit of Jazz

Read "Astral Spirits: Lifting the Spirit of Jazz" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


While pop often follows predictable musical patterns, one of the greatest qualities about jazz is its sense of adventurousness and the ability to take the listener on a journey where the destination is unknown. The Astral Spirits label, based in jny: Austin, Texas, and run by musician Nate Cross, truly embraces this quality of jazz.

Charles Rumback, Kuzu and More

Read "Charles Rumback, Kuzu and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


There's a slight Chicago flavour to this episode. Drummer Charles Rumback hooked up with noted New Orleans bassist James Singleton for Rumback's latest recording, Cadillac Turns. In an odd twist of strange, Singleton approached a jet-lagged Rumback in a bar in Sydney Australia and said he had seen Rumback playing in a Chicago bar a few ...

Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri" reviewed by Nicola Negri


Per chi non se ne fosse accorto, stiamo vivendo un momento musicale straordinario, fatto di ricerca senza confini, ibridazioni linguistiche e condivisione di esperienze spesso agli antipodi--insomma diametralmente opposto al periodo storico, in cui l'ignoranza miope delle nuove destre vorrebbe tenerci divisi, ancorati ad un'idea identitaria ormai superata dalla storia. Dal jazz più classico alle ...
