Erik Jekabson Sextet III: One Note At A Time

Read "One Note At A Time" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

By the time One Note At A Time's first two songs have finished, it's been made abundantly clear that trumpeter Erik Jekabson appreciates a groove as much as he values space. The opener—"Days of Haze"—provides an introductory shot of adrenaline in the form of a tight, funk-framed blues, and “Dusk," in contrast, looks to open vistas, ...

Manu Katche: the scOpe

Read "the scOpe" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Manu Katché's tenth album as a leader, the ScOpe encompasses modern and ancient music, tribal and global music, and illustrates why he is not only one of the world's best drummers, but much more. Katché entered the Paris Conservatory as a pianist but switched to percussion as his studies progressed; his mature style eventually ...

Steve Khan: Patchwork

Read "Patchwork" reviewed by John Kelman

Amongst the many myths out there about music-making—especially in jazz, where the improvisation quotient is often so high—is that composing may, indeed, be work, but doesn't require the kind of relentless attention to detail that far more truthfully defines how many artists write and arrange their music. These days, one need only look to music by ...

Karina Corradini: From Ella to Elis

Read "Karina Corradini: From Ella to Elis" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

It's remarkable how some musicians can overcome severe adversity, stay focused, persevere and come out on the other side of the tunnel. There are many such stories, and one is singer Karina Corradini from jny: Buenos Aires, who has been on the jny: Los Angeles jazz scene for some 15 years. Corradini has an ...

Gabrielle Stravelli: Pick Up My Pieces: Gabrielle Stravelli Sings Willie Nelson

Read "Pick Up My Pieces: Gabrielle Stravelli Sings Willie Nelson" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

To say that Willie Nelson has been directly influenced by jazz is to state the obvious. Listen to the ever-reliable Stardust (Columbia, 1978) or check out any number of his latter-day releases--American Classic (Blue Note, 2009), Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin (Sony, 2016), My Way (Sony, 2018)--to experience that truth in repertoire; give his meeting with ...

Rob Dixon: Coast to Crossroads

Read "Coast to Crossroads" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

"The album is called Coast to Crossroads because I'm based in Indiana, the Crossroads state, but I also work a lot on the West Coast and East Coast," explains saxophonist Rob Dixon, who leads this trio session with drummer Mike Clark and seven-string funk guitar maven Charlie Hunter (who also served as producer), plus occasional guest ...

Bob Dorough Trio featuring Michael Hornstein: But For Now

Read "But For Now" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When But For Now first landed in 2015, it was a reminder of the good-natured brilliance behind the artistry of one of America's greatest living treasures. But with Bob Dorough's passing in April of 2018, the album's second coming plays more like a parting gift. Recorded in 2014, when Dorough was already a ...

Tim Rachbach: Under One Moon

Read "Under One Moon" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

"Ancient Thread" forcefully opens 23 year-old drummer Tim Rachbach's solid debut, Under The Moon, and it's a fitting title, indeed. Throughout this and six other Rachbach compositions, ("Toy Tune" belongs to none other than saxophonist Wayne Shorter) a group of young adventurous players explore their way through the music's many nuanced turns. Saxophonist Xavier ...

The Rob Dixon Trio: Coast to Crossroads

Read "Coast to Crossroads" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Saxophonist Rob Dixon, who mainly plays a muscular tenor sax here, is based in Indiana (the Crossroads state) but also works a lot on the East and West Coasts--hence the album title. He has done three tours with guitarist Charlie Hunter's band, and the 7-string guitar phenomenon returns the favor here by both playing and producing ...
