Zoh Amba: Bhakti

Read "Bhakti" reviewed by Mark Corroto


It may be an overused metaphor, but saxophonist Zoh Amba does indeed stand on the shoulders of giants. Proof of that phrase is Bhakti, a tour de force of passionate free jazz. The twenty—something artist draws on traditions born of the 1960s from artists such as Albert Ayler, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp, and Peter Brötzmann. Her ...

André Minvielle, Jimetta Rose, Simone Prattico, Basher & Other New Releases

Read "André Minvielle, Jimetta Rose, Simone Prattico, Basher & Other New Releases" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


The life affirming power of the human voice, from the modern spirituality of Jimetta Rose & Voices of Creation to the irreverent and crazy eclecticism of André Minvielle, or the haunting elegance of Piers Faccini with Simone Prattico, opens a wide ranging set which is then closed with another tribute to Frank Kimbrough.

Walter Smith III & Matthew Stevens: In Common III

Read "In Common III" reviewed by Chris May


The third iteration of tenor saxophonist Walter Smith III and guitarist Matthew Stevens' In Common project is another delightfully lyrical and inventive affair. Each of the albums presents Smith and Stevens in the company of a different three-piece rhythm section. The first had vibraphonist Joel Ross, bassist Harish Raghavan and drummer Marcus Gilmore. The second had ...

Immanuel Wilkins: The 7th Hand

Read "The 7th Hand" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


That we are free to think saxophone firebrand Immanuel Wilkins' 2020 Blue Note debut Omega served as a sign of hope amid a particularly hopeless year puts an awful lot of weight on the shoulders of a 25-year-old and, beyond doubt, colors the fate of The 7th Hand. Humbly and characteristically, Wilkins and company meet the ...
