Julie Sassoon Quartet: Voyages

Read "Voyages" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


As on a high speed, downhill slalom chase, listeners are suddenly, nakedly and without poles hurled into “Missed Calls"; the opening burst of sublime energy and groupthink cracks Voyages wide open, sets the mad, determined pace and tone for a craftily organic, six-song, free-jazz adventure which never lets up. It is breakneck rhythm churning, keening, into ...

Charles Rumback, Kuzu and More

Read "Charles Rumback, Kuzu and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


There's a slight Chicago flavour to this episode. Drummer Charles Rumback hooked up with noted New Orleans bassist James Singleton for Rumback's latest recording, Cadillac Turns. In an odd twist of strange, Singleton approached a jet-lagged Rumback in a bar in Sydney Australia and said he had seen Rumback playing in a Chicago bar a few ...

Il meglio del 2016 Secondo Paolo Peviani

Read "Il meglio del 2016 Secondo Paolo Peviani" reviewed by Paolo Peviani


Dal punto di vista discografico, quella del 2016 è stata un'annata molto ricca. Nessun picco straordinario ma tanti buoni, ottimi dischi, da ascoltare e riascoltare con attenzione. Dal mio piccolo e per forza di cose parziale osservatorio, ho avuto l'impressione che i grandi nomi del jazz -al netto di qualche eccezione -non abbiano prodotto grandi cose. ...

Julie Sassoon: Fourtune

Read "Fourtune" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Fourtune is British pianist-composer Julie Sassoon's first quartet recording. Sassoon's musical approach draws in equal measure on her classical training and on a love of jazz and improvised music. This marriage goes far beyond the translation of a pianistic technique from one musical area to another but becomes something far deeper and more powerfully emotionally moving ...

Fabio Delvò: Rastplatz

Read "Rastplatz" reviewed by Dave Wayne


I became aware of Fabio Delvo's music via his recordings with guitarist Jeff Platz. Platz has an ear for first-rate musicianship, and his recordings with lesser-known European musicians such as Delvo, Jan Klare, and Meinrad Kneer have been nothing short of revelatory. The title of Delvo's second album as a leader, Rastplatz, isn't a tribute to ...
