Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward

Read "Keith Tippett: 100 Best Foots Forward" reviewed by Duncan Heining


From the Albert Hall at twenty-two with a fifty-piece band to picking potatoes to make ends meet a decade later, Keith Tippett's life in music could sum up many a jazz career. After a grim '80s, things now look better for the composer, pianist and bandleader. “What I'm about to say is ridiculous but it was ...

Mike Osborne: Force Of Nature - Part 2-2

Read "Mike Osborne: Force Of Nature - Part 2-2" reviewed by Barry Witherden


Part 1 | Part 2 The passion and conviction of Osborne's playing was so intense that it almost always came across undiminished on recordings, whether they originated in a pub, club or concert-hall gig, or in a studio as part of a formal session. Some of his most exciting work was captured in front ...

Julie Tippetts: Didn't You Used To Be Julie Driscoll?

Read "Julie Tippetts: Didn't You Used To Be Julie Driscoll?" reviewed by Duncan Heining


The respect in which Julie Tippetts is held by her fellow musicians and fans is truly heartening--and truly deserved. Back in the late sixties, then Julie Driscoll, she gave up a very different career trajectory in music, one that had begun with Steampacket and continued with Brian Auger & The Trinity, to follow a journey characterised ...

Read "Delta Saxophone Quartet e Gwilym Simcock al Teatro Manzoni di Milano" reviewed by Claudio Bonomi


Delta Saxophone Quartet feat. Gwilym Simcock Aperitivo in Concerto Teatro Manzoni Milano -30.11.2014 Ma cosa c'entrano i King Crimson con il jazz? Siamo sinceri, poco o nulla.

Soft Heap: Soft Heap

Read "Soft Heap" reviewed by Nic Jones


None of the four gentlemen pictured standing on a London street in the booklet for this one are with us anymore, but their brand of music is a perfect antidote to somber reflection. Recorded in 1978 by a quartet of stalwarts from the likes of Soft Machine, Hatfield And The North and Gilgamesh, the music is ...

Command All Stars: Curiosities 1972

Read "Curiosities 1972" reviewed by Nic Jones


That infinite moment with which a lot of the music AAJ covers is preoccupied is amplified here, rife with a depth which far outstrips the casual manner in which the music came together.
