Toldam / Riedel / Berg / Wiklund / Christensen: Tak for dit brev

Read "Tak for dit brev" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Danish pianist Simon Toldam has made his mark as an abundantly creative improviser, most recently manifest on his work with Ways--a duo comprised of saxophonist Brodie West and drummer Evan Cartwright. Their Fortunes (Lorna Records, 2020) was an album defined by unusual gestures and subtle refractions, keeping the listener guessing throughout. Toldam's latest release, Tak for ...

Read "Tony Allen, Hugh Masekela, Luciana Souza, Dave Douglas & Other New Releases" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


We may be in lock-down mode but oustading jazz releases keep coming out as if nothing were of the COVID and the social distancing, bringing us much needed relief. One more reason to pay tribute to today's artists and to encourage everyone to support the music scene by purchasing music directly from the musicians and labels ...

Lisen Rylander Löve: Oceans

Read "Oceans" reviewed by Troy Dostert


While up-and-coming Swede Lisen Rylander Löve is a talented tenor saxophonist, demonstrated nicely in the quartet Here's to Us on the undersung gem, Animals, Wild and Tame (Hoob Records, 2018), she is hardly content to limit herself to one instrument--or even one genre, for that matter. In Here's to Us she teams up with trumpeter Susana ...

Read "Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Troy Dostert

From Susana Santos Silva's mesmerizing solo trumpet to Ingrid Laubrock's formidable orchestra (and everything in between), the following choices are a cross-section of some of the best the year had to offer. Something ...

Altoadige Jazz Festival 2018

Read "Altoadige Jazz Festival 2018" reviewed by Libero Farnè


Varie Sedi Provincia di Bolzano 29.06--08.07.2018 Da alcuni anni il sottotitolo di questo festival potrebbe essere “Young European Jazz Festival," visto che il suo curatore Klaus Widmann evita accuratamente di invitare gruppi americani o nomi europei già troppo noti. Il suo obiettivo è invece quello di sondare le giovani tendenze ...

The University of Toronto 12tet: Trillium Falls

Read "Trillium Falls" reviewed by Jack Bowers


This is an altogether sunny and pleasing session by the splendid University of Toronto 12tet, which sounds at times like a full-fledged big band, at others like a leaner and more even-tempered chamber jazz group. The songs and arrangements, most by members of the ensemble (including a couple by director Terry Promane), are lush and lyrical, ...

HOOB Records: Ten Years Young

Read "HOOB Records: Ten Years Young" reviewed by James Pearse


There is something romantic about starting a record label nowadays. With few financial incentives and a whole bunch of work to do to get the record recorded, promoted and distributed, it's a wonder people start records labels it at all. But they do. And many do it very well indeed. Artistic freedom is an ...

Sarah Riedel: Living Up To Expectations

Read "Sarah Riedel: Living Up To Expectations" reviewed by James Pearse


The world of jazz is no stranger to the sound of the Swedish language. Alice Babs and Monica Zetterlund--and more recently, Rigmor Gustafsson--are just a few of the names of jazz vocalists hailing from this cold northern country that have reached the ears of US and UK audiences. Some people believe that spoken Swedish ...
