Read "John Sharpe's Best Jazz Albums Of 2022" reviewed by John Sharpe

From the 200 or so discs that I heard in 2022, here are eleven new issues (in roughly the order I came across them), which gave me the most pleasure. As ever I find it particularly invidious to pick and choose between honest artistic endeavours. So perhaps it's better to view these selections as a chance ...

Martin Kuchen, Agusti Fernandez, Zlatko Kaucic: The Steps That Resonate

Read "The Steps That Resonate" reviewed by John Sharpe

Once improvisers reach a certain level of experience, it is rare that a meeting between them does not deliver the goods. By this stage they are well versed in the mechanics of collective music making off the map. They have developed a fine sense of when to play and when not, how much they can respond ...

Joe McPhee / John Edwards / Klaus Kugel: Existential Moments

Read "Existential Moments" reviewed by John Sharpe

Dave Rempis: Chrysopoeia

Read "Chrysopoeia" reviewed by John Sharpe

Recorded at Krakow's legendary Alchemia just two days before Znachki Stilyag (Aerophonic Records, 2020), on the same European tour, the power trio Ballister comprising saxophonist Dave Rempis, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, demonstrates an astonishing level of consistency in terms of both energy and excellence. Chrysopoeia constitutes the triumvirate's tenth release over some dozen ...

Martin Küchen, Agustí Fernandez, Zlatko Kaučič: The Steps That Resonate

Read "The Steps That Resonate" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Let's test the laws of thermodynamics with free improvisation music. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another.

Ballister: Chrysopoeia

Read "Chrysopoeia" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It is difficult to imagine a Ballister recording having its origins in any setting other than a live performance. The trio of saxophonist Dave Rempis, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love fuels each performance with the audience's energy on all their recordings, including Chrysopoeia, their tenth. Not that the trio could not produce their music ...
