Leni Stern

Leni Stern is a traveler. Borders are not important, as she fits in effortlessly from place to place. The many languages of rhythm are her passports, her love of people fixes her destinations, and time marks her well-earned path. For over 25 years Stern has found motivation in the ever-changing world around her for the music that she plays, a sound that is equally transforming, malleable, fluid, and moving. Traveling. She came from Europe, put roots down in America, followed the winds to Africa, and her sights are always on the horizon. It is unique to find a musician so proficient at their art form but who still admits to finding inspiration in the music and culture of the current events around them

Leni Stern: Dance

Read "Dance" reviewed by Geno Thackara


If one key to a great dance is having the right partner, it must be a doubly (maybe even exponentially) better key to have several. Leni Stern began something of a sequence by forming a new trio for the straightforward 3 (LSR, 2018) and expanding to a quartet with 4 (LSR, 2020). The same group has further ...

The Bill Frisell Songbook: Part 2

Read "The Bill Frisell Songbook: Part 2" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Bill Frisell's instrumental voice is instantly recognizable, whether displaying its skronky side in John Zorn's Naked City or his sublime and delicate voicings infused of high-end Americana. Equally distinctive are his compositions which more and more of his peers have been incorporating into their repertoires, in a process of metabolization that goes back to the 1990s ...
