Olivier Le Goas & Reciprocity: Onramp Of Heaven Dreams

Read "Onramp Of Heaven Dreams" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


A blindfolded spin of French drummer Olivier Le Goas & Reciprocity's Onramp Of Heaven Dreams says the spirit of guitarist Pat Metheny is hanging around. The lineup—guitar, piano, bass and drums—mirrors that of Metheny's early ECM Records such as Watercolors (1977) and American Garage (1979), and the disc's title itself nods to Metheny's Offramp (ECM Records,1982). ...

Tomeka Reid Quartet, Piero Bittolo Bon & Ratchet Orchestra

Read "Tomeka Reid Quartet, Piero Bittolo Bon & Ratchet Orchestra" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


I guess this episode could be termed a “friendly" one, as it just so happens a number of my musical friends have new releases out for sampling, so I dove right in. Toronto drummer Nick Fraser has an excellent album out with Tony Malaby and Kris Davis and they open the show. Violist Ig Henneman from ...

Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz

Read "Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Olivier Le Goas: Reciprocity

Read "Reciprocity" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Matt Cibula, writing for All About Jazz, wondered in his review of French drummer Olivier Le Goas' Gravitation (Altrisuoni, 2007): “Who the heck is Olivier Le Goas...?" indicating perhaps a paucity of information about the leader, even in this day of Internet info overload. Nine years later there still isn't much on-line scoop about the man. ...

Olivier Le Goas Quartet: Gravitations

Read "Gravitations" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Ventinove anni, francese, Olivier Le Goas è qui al suo album d'esordio. Un esordio forse tardivo rispetto agli standard d'età dei 'giovani musicisti emergenti' cui siamo abituati, ma indubbiamente un esordio sontuoso. Per gli illustri compagni di ventura, che lungi dall'essere uno specchio per le allodole per ascoltatori poco avveduti, sono piuttosto una conseguenza (oltre che, ...
