Myra Melford &Tanya Kalmanovitch: Heart Mountain

Read "Heart Mountain" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Fate drew violist/violinist Tanya Kalmanovitch and pianist/harmonium player Myra Melford together at the Canadian 2003 Guelph Jazz Festival. Kalmanovitch could not play with her quartet, and therefore teamed up with Melford. Both women are improvisers who can shape their musical journeys into a compelling portrait from a common thread. Proof positive can be found on Heart ...

Myra Melford & Tanya Kalmanovitch: Heart Mountain

Read "Heart Mountain" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Pianist Myra Melford and violinist/violist Tanya Kalmanovitch have created, in Heart Mountain, a work that demonstrates the highest degree of interaction between players who have the innate ability to create spontaneous music that lives and breathes. There is absolutely no reason why jazz, specifically improvised music, cannot and should not be listened to with ...

Tanya Kalmanovitch, Myra Melford: Heart Mountain

Read "Heart Mountain" reviewed by Suzanne Lorge

It's getting harder and harder these days to categorize jazz musicians, as Tanya Kalmanovitch and Myra Melford remind us with their new release, Heart Mountain (Perspicacity Records). Both carry heavy credentials in other genres of music: violinist/violist Kalmanovitch holds a bachelors degree from Juilliard, and classically trained pianist Melford traveled to Calcutta on a Fulbright scholarship ...

Myra Melford / Tanya Kalmanovitch: Heart Mountain

Read "Heart Mountain" reviewed by Troy Collins

Heart Mountain is the first duo recording of pianist Myra Melford and violist/violinist Tanya Kalmanovitch. Ajay Heble, artistic director of the 2003 Guelph International Jazz Festival, suggested a duet with Melford when unforeseen circumstances prevented the scheduled performance of Kalmanovitch's quartet. So successful was their unplanned meeting that they decided to reconvene for this 2005 studio ...

Tanya Kalmanovitch Hut Five: Out Where the Trains Don't Run

Read "Out Where the Trains Don't Run" reviewed by AAJ Staff

How ridiculous that with the deep pool of talented jazz violinists, many best-of lists lump them into the nonspecific “Best String Player category? With Leroy Jenkins, Billy Bang, Mark Feldman, Jenny Scheinman, Carla Kihlstedt, Regina Carter, and most recently Tanya Kalmanovitch (selected as an AAJ-NY “Best New Talent of 2004) -- it would be a challenge ...

Tanya Kalmanovitch Hut Five: Out Where the Trains Don't Run

Read "Out Where the Trains Don't Run" reviewed by John Kelman

As relatively unusual as it is to hear the violin in a jazz context, the viola is an even more unlikely improvising instrument. And yet, classical masters like Kim Kashkashian have brought its rich texture to bear on albums including Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek's latest, In Praise of Dreams , where the viola's inherent warmth contrasted ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
