Phase Dancing: Gottlieb, Wertico, Sanchez—The Art of Drumming in the Pat Metheny Group

Read "Phase Dancing: Gottlieb, Wertico, Sanchez—The Art of Drumming in the Pat Metheny Group" reviewed by Joseph Vella


It was 1978 when I first heard “Phase Dance" on Bay Area jazz station KJAZ from a new band called the Pat Metheny Group (PMG). The music didn't just blow me away, it also spoke to me on such a deep level. Little did I know, it would stay with me forever. What the PMG did ...

Martin Wind: No Second Thoughts

Read "Martin Wind: No Second Thoughts" reviewed by Doug Collette


Bassist/composer Martin Wind is nothing if not brave. But then any contemporary jazz instrumentalist courageous enough to so forthrightly comport himself on the instrument in the shadow of the late icons such as Charles Mingus and Jaco Pastorius would certainly have no compunctions about recording and releasing two differently conceived albums within just months of each ...

New York Bass Quartet: Air

Read "Air" reviewed by Pierre Giroux


Bassist Martin Wind is the real deal. Although he may not have the profile enjoyed by some of the bold-faced names in the profession such as Christian McBride, Ron Carter or Esperanza Spalding, he has built his reputation as a skilled, versatile player since emigrating to the US in 1995 to study at the NYU jazz ...
