Caleb Wheeler Curtis: Heatmap

Read "Heatmap" reviewed by Paul Rauch


It is mostly troublesome to make blanket assertions about jazz and the musicians that facilitate the art form. Such assertions are subjective at best, yet it would not seem unreasonable to assert that Caleb Wheeler Curtis is one of the more interesting alto saxophonists to emerge since 2000. His playing has a radiant, vocal quality to ...

Ember with Orrin Evans: No One is Any One

Read "No One is Any One" reviewed by Paul Rauch


To truly be in the headspace to appreciate the music of Ember, an understanding of the individuals making up the collective is paramount. The original compositions are not mind boggling, complex exercises brandishing the challenging dynamics of jazz composition in the 2020s. Refreshingly, the writing is open ended, containing melodies that come across as recitable mantras. ...

Samuel Blaser: Purity of Purpose In All Things

Read "Samuel Blaser: Purity of Purpose In All Things" reviewed by Doug Collette


One of trombonist/composer Samuel Blaser's more subtle talents is his uncanny ability to as fully distinguish himself accompanying other musicians as when he is leading theme. The prominence of a sideman is, by definition, not so great as the bandleader, producer etc, but to completely engage in the project of another is an exercise in generosity ...

Sebastien Ammann's Color Wheel: Resilience

Read "Resilience" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Stark, abstract inquiries are fashioned, some resolved, some left hanging, in the jarring and resolute music of Swiss-pianist Sebastien Ammann's Color Wheel. With an uncanny ability to command the moment, Ammann and his equally inspired mates—Michael Attias on saxophone, bassistNoah Garabedian, trombonist Samuel Blaser and drummerNathan Ellman-Bell—take the moment and throw in a ton of turbulence ...

Curtis + Garabedian + Sperrazza: New Year

Read "New Year" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


This is a compelling slice of Brooklyn unburdened. With no real restrictions, stratification, expectations or requirements to speak of, three friends and fellow seekers document their truth(s) in sound. Burrowing into their shared experiences in the Borough of Kings, and discovering tunnels and wormholes in the process, they come out on the other end with music ...

Tomoko Omura: Roots

Read "Roots" reviewed by Ian Patterson


The roots of the title of violinist Tomoko Omura's second CD as leader refer to traditional and popular melodies familiar to several generations of Japanese. But if the melodies of Omura's childhood have left an indelible stamp on her musical DNA, so too has the past decade spent in America absorbing the roots of jazz. It's ...
