Kurt Rosenwinkel Trio: Angels Around

Read "Angels Around" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Jazz guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel's previous album Caipi (Heartcore Records, 2017) was unique in his discography. Not just original music—that was true of many of his previous records—but Brazilian influenced, and featuring his vocals. This set is a call back to the Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio's Reflections (WOMMUSIC, 2009): a selection of mostly modern jazz standards, played ...

Ecliptic: The Path of 01

Read "The Path of 01" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Slovenian jazz guitarist Jani Moder composed all of the music for this project, but it is arranged by the band, and is very much a group sound. Only trumpeter Igor Matković appeared on Moder's previous release Jani Moder's Brain Blender: Abacus (ZKP RTV SLO, 2014), but his role here has expanded from guest to a significant ...

Gary Husband & Markus Reuter: Music Of Our Times

Read "Music Of Our Times" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Drew Schlesinger & David Torn: Summer Synthesis 1978

Read "Summer Synthesis 1978" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

In the summer of 1978 synthesist/keyboardist Drew Schlesinger had assembled a small studio in his apartment in Ithaca, NY and was composing electronic music.

Alex Jønsson: Heathland

Read "Heathland" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Danish guitarist/composer Alex Jonsson returns with the same trio heard on Heart Of Gold: Live In Aarhus (Self Produced, 2016), with bassist Jens Mikkel Madsen and drummer Andreas Skamby. This is a studio recording with richer sound, but the band's music shows considerable growth beyond that. The title tune opens the set, a rubato exercise in ...

Read "Crossover" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

In 2020, Cuban-born guitarist Jorge Garcia splits his time between South Carolina (where he resides) and Florida (where he has an established performing career).

The Necks: Three

Read "Three" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Live performances by Australian free-improvising trio The Necks typically take the form of a single, slowly growing and morphing mass of sound. On recordings the musicians give themselves permission to sculpt the sound, so it is not a real-time document. Nevertheless their two previous albums Vertigo (Northern Spy Records, 2015) and Body (Northern Spy Records, 2018) ...
