Bill Bruford: The Summerfold Collection 1987-2008

Read "Bill Bruford: The Summerfold Collection 1987-2008" reviewed by John Kelman

Intrepid percussionist/composer/bandleader Bill Bruford began his career in the late '60s art-rock arena with Yes and, later, King Crimson, but jazz has always moved underneath, like an eddying current. His early recordings, well documented on the companion Winterfold Collection, may not speak the language of jazz, but they possess its spirit. By 1986, Bruford ...

Bill Bruford: The Winterfold Collection 1978-1986

Read "Bill Bruford: The Winterfold Collection 1978-1986" reviewed by John Kelman

Jonathan Kreisberg: Night Songs

Read "Jonathan Kreisberg: Night Songs" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

Although technical proficiency and filigreed improvisations often catch the attention of the average jazz fan, those in the know will insist that you can't really evaluate the mettle of a jazz musician until you hear how he interprets a ballad. Memorable efforts from the jazz cannon that fruitfully establish a reflective mood over the length of ...

Bill Evans Trio: At The Village Vanguard 1961 Revisited

Read "Bill Evans Trio: At The Village Vanguard 1961 Revisited" reviewed by Chris May

Liner notes generally avoid referencing current affairs, for the good reason that what is front page news when the notes are being written may be gone and forgotten by the time the album is released. But there are exceptional circumstances, and here is one of them. On his father's side, Bill Evans was ...

Christian Howes & Richard Galliano: Southern Exposure

Read "Christian Howes & Richard Galliano: Southern Exposure" reviewed by Howard Mandel

Christian Howes wants you to know that Southern Exposure is not simply another violin and accordion record, some light-hearted evocation of Parisian café music. “It's deeper than that," Howes, the 40-year-old violinist who is also an educator and online entrepreneur, says of his 13th album (counting self-produced projects from the 1990s). “I think there's ...
