Liberty Ellman

Pi Recordings is proud to release Tactiles, the second album by Liberty Ellman, one of New York's most imaginative and unorthodox guitarist/composers. Tactiles follows up the critically acclaimed Orthodoxy, which Ellman released in 1998 on his own Red Giant label. Featuring Mark Shim on tenor saxophone, Stephan Crump on bass, and Eric Harland on drums, Tactiles documents sounds and concepts that have been gestating since Ellman returned to his native New York from the Bay Area in 1998. Tactiles is Ellman's second appearance on Seth Rosner's innovative Pi label - the first being Up Popped the Two Lips by Henry Threadgill's acoustic band ZOOID

Liberty Ellman: Last Desert

Read "Last Desert" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Guitarist Liberty Ellman doesn't release many albums as a leader. Last Desert is only his fifth in more than twenty years, and fourth for Pi Recordings, following 2015's Radiate. But that doesn't mean he isn't a busy artist. He can be heard with JD Allen, Jason Robinson, Myra Melford's Snowy Egret, Stephan Crump's Rosetta Trio and, ...

JD Allen: Love Stone

Read "Love Stone" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Come suggerisce il titolo, alcune canzoni d'amore del repertorio jazzistico sono state qui rivisitate tenendo a mente una regola aurea: l'approfondita conoscenza dei testi, oltre che della musica, per un viaggio introspettivo intorno agli standard. In questi casi si corre il rischio di esporsi ad esiti monocromatici, in parte scongiurati dal duplice apporto solistico di sax-chitarra ...

Henry Threadgill: la sintesi e gli specchi

Read "Henry Threadgill: la sintesi e gli specchi" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il settembre 2017 è stato per Henry Threadgill un mese di intensa vendemmia discografica: nel giro di pochi giorni, dal 24 al 27, il compositore e polistrumentista è entrato nello studio Water Music, New Jersey, con due formazioni diverse ma per molti versi complementari, e una bella mole di materiale. Uno dei due organici, denominato Double ...

Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2018

Read "Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Troy Dostert

2018 was a terrific year for imaginative, well-executed recordings that cover the spectrum of instrumental configurations in creative jazz and freely improvised music. From Susana Santos Silva's mesmerizing solo trumpet to Ingrid Laubrock's formidable orchestra (and everything in between), the following choices are a cross-section of some of the best the year had to offer. Something ...

JD Allen: Love Stone

Read "Love Stone" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Beneath this tough tenor's exterior rests the most tender of spirits. If you need evidence, just spend some time with Love Stone. After carving out his rightful place at the apex with a series of brilliant piano-less trio outings focused on pithy originals, saxophonist JD Allen recently felt the winds of change in ...
