Pulled By Magnets: Rose Golden Doorways

Read "Rose Golden Doorways" reviewed by Chris May

After a momentous start in the mid 2000s with saxophonist Pete Wareham's Acoustic Ladyland and his own band, Polar Bear, drummer Sebastian Rochford's path through British jazz has been distinguished, though not without the odd glitch. The highs have been Himalayan. Perhaps most notably, he played a key role in reeds player Shabaka Hutchings' Sons Of ...

Snowboy and the Latin Section: New York Afternoon

Read "Snowboy and the Latin Section: New York Afternoon" reviewed by Phil Barnes

The pervasive myths of New York are of a whole different order to those of just about any other world city. If 'Swinging London' ever existed before the offshore 'investors' moved in, it was long ago reduced, as the Clash put it, to the 'ring of that truncheon thing,' yet New York has somehow kept its ...

Polar Bear: Same As You

Read "Same As You" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Geography is rarely something that a writer considers when preparing a review. But Same as You sounds profoundly shaped by where it was mixed and mastered--in the Mojave Desert, by producer Ken Barrientos and Polar Bear drummer and bandleader Sebastian Rochford. “We spent a couple days at his studio then headed out to the desert for ...

Polar Bear: Same As You

Read "Same As You" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Polar Bear's seventh album, Same As You appears barely 12 months after album number six, In Each And Every One (Leaf Label, 2014). It's far from being a “more of the same" follow-up though--this is a softer, more-at-peace Polar Bear sound than its predecessor, a mellower vibe. There are just six tracks on the ...

Live From Birmingham: Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Mark Holub, George Clinton & Polar Bear

Read "Live From Birmingham: Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Mark Holub, George Clinton & Polar Bear" reviewed by Martin Longley

Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club Symphony Hall April 13, 2015 Rarely does a gig prompt such an ambivalent response as this 'adiós' show by the very veteran Buena Vista posse. Musical vibrations were typically very positive within their extensive set-list of Cuban songs, covering all moods, from up-tempo near-salsa ...

I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Moss Freed

Read "I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Moss Freed" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

01. Lionel Loueke--Heritage (EMI--2012). Sono diventato dipendente da questo album dopo aver visto il trio (con Mark Guiliana e Michael Olatuja) al Vortex di Londra l'anno scorso. Vi è un quantità smisurata di sentimento nel modo di suonare di Loueke mentre la scrittura è moderna con memorabili sequenze melodiche e groove danzabili. Gli assolo di ...
