Lisa Hoppe's Third Reality: The Mighty Unlikely

Read "The Mighty Unlikely" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Without giving away any professional secrets, it is quite often that any beat-pounding pundit or wily curmudgeon--pick several thousand if you like, there's billions out there--will come at an artist with certain prejudices and expectations. And so it is with German bassist Lisa Hoppe. Having heard her unusual yet oddly soothing explorations on such discs as ...

Favourite Releases of 2019

Read "Favourite Releases of 2019" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode features some of my favourite recordings released in 2019, chosen from a year of some pretty damn fine music. It always seems that I tend toward bassist-led sessions, and that's the case again, with great recordings from Carlos Bica, Torbjorn Zetterberg and the Miles Perkin Quartet for starters. As well, more women artists appear ...

Read "Dave Sewelson, Satoko Fujii and Tatsuya Yoshida & More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

There's a definite theme of muscular sounding saxophone in this edition of One Man's Jazz: Dave Sewelson, Steve Baczkowski, Chris Pitsiokos, Massimo Magee, Tomasz Szukalski, Marty Ehrlich, Cene Resnik, David Leon, Jonas Kullhammar and Remy Alvarez can all skronk with the best of them, and they're somewhere blowing their reeds apart throughout the music in this ...

Saxophonists are all over this episode. Australia's Julien Wilson provides two different settings to display his formidable talents, and so does New York's Kevin Sun. Swiss alto player Christoph Gallio made his One Man's Jazz debut with his trio, Day & Taxi, but this time he's back with a larger and freer ensemble, Roadworks. You'll hear ...

Lisa Hoppe, Sorey & Crispell, Gebhard Ullman and More

Read "Lisa Hoppe, Sorey & Crispell, Gebhard Ullman and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode is very wide-ranging in styles and sounds; the boundaries keep expanding. I was very impressed with bassist Lisa Hoppe's new trio, Third Reality, with saxophonist David Leon and guitarist Tal Yahalom. Very original stuff! It's on a German label—Jazzhausmusik—so do some digging to find it. It's well worth the effort. Drummer, composer and influencer ...

Swiss saxophonist Mark Jufer's Trip to the Center comes at you in a flurry of sharp, biting angles, presenting a free-form trio with a flair for twisting and turning on the whim and intuition of any of its three venturous inhabitants. An excited tangle of themes and ideas recorded in two days, Jufer, elastic ...

Marc Jufer Trio: Trip To The Center

Read "Trip To The Center" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Marc Jufer is a Swiss saxophonist who has worked in a variety of formats. Here he leads a trio with a fire-breathing rhythm section of bassist Lisa Hoppe and drummer Devin Gray. Without a piano or other harmony instrument to support him, Jufer's sax playing comes off slinky and malleable. He subtly threads his ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
