Linus + Økland/Van Heertum/Zach: Light As Never

Read "Light As Never" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Belgian duo Linus—Ruben Machtelinckx, guitar and banjo; Thomas Jillings, saxophone and clarinet—have been recording with additional musicians for several years. This grouping is the largest they have gathered together and revisits the one from the album Mono No Aware (Aspen Edities, 2017). It is rich instrumentation, expanded by Machtelinckx's additional baritone guitar, Jillings' synthesizer and Niels ...

Aspen Edities: The Album as a Work of Art

Read "Aspen Edities: The Album as a Work of Art" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


It's a paradox of the digital age that it has spawned some of the most beautiful physical editions of music, but perhaps it's quite logical. In an age where almost everything becomes available digitally, it's a good thing for a physical product to distinguish itself. This is exactly what the records from the Belgian-based label Aspen ...

Shahzad Ismaily: sea legs / hum back

Read "sea legs / hum back" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


A split album with the first ever solo release by American multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily (who has played with artists like guitarist Marc Ribot, singer/songwriter Tom Waits and experimentalist Laurie Anderson), plus a solo euphonium program by Belgian Niels Van Heertum: one side each in the LP version. Ismaily begins the set with a single ...

Veder: Evergreen

Read "Evergreen" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Belgian euphonium player Niels Van Heertum leads the acoustic quartet Veder. After the minimalism of his solo album JK's Kamer +50.92509° +03.84800° (Smeraldina-Rima, 2017)--on which he also played tuba, trumpet & electronics--Van Heertum turns to the sort of chamber jazz played on his previous collaborations with guitarist Ruben Machtelinckx. Felt like old folk (Smeraldina Rima, 2015) ...

Niels Van Heertum: JK's Kamer +50.92509° +03.84800°

Read "JK's Kamer +50.92509° +03.84800°" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Belgian brass player Niels Van Heertum is in no hurry on this album, and you shouldn't be, either. For his entry in the solo performance series by Granvat he improvised on euphonium, tuba, trumpet and electronics. It's a predominantly low, droning sound, similar to the recent group recording Felt like old folk with the Linus duo ...

Ruben Machtelinckx & Linus: Belgian Experimental Music, Strings Attached

Read "Ruben Machtelinckx & Linus: Belgian Experimental Music, Strings Attached" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Belgian guitarist/composer Ruben Machtelinckx has built an impressive catalog of recordings as a leader since graduating from the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp in 2010. He tends to work in groups with no drummer, a chamber jazz approach that suits his lyrical, sometimes minimalist compositions well. His guitar style is tasteful and devoid of flashy pyrotechnics: even ...
