Unconventional Instruments

Read "Unconventional Instruments" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

A substantial number of their most popular albums, such as Carla Bley's Escalator Over The Hill (1974), Egberto Gismonti: Dança Dos Escravos (1989), Nils Petter Molvær's Khmer (1997), and many more, are not ...

John Dikeman And The Origin Of The Species

Read "John Dikeman And The Origin Of The Species" reviewed by Mark Corroto


If we were to go searching for saxophonist John Dikeman's spirit animal, we might have to bypass beast for sapien. Let's just say his spirit animal is the father of punk, Iggy Pop. Like early music by The Stooges, Dikeman's sound makes reference to the music of both Albert Ayler and Pharoah Sanders. It's a shame ...

Hamid Drake / Ralph M. Jones / Adam Rudolph: Karuna

Read "Karuna" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Adam Rudolph's music has always been exotic and yet familiar, far-flung, and seemingly nearby. Then again, the same can be said of Hamid Drake and Ralph M. Jones' work. This trio is sort of a dream team of performers. OK, just about every project Rudolph completes is a stellar combination created for a particular purpose. Presently, ...

John Coltrane and the Meaning of Life

Read "John Coltrane and the Meaning of Life" reviewed by Douglas Groothuis


Few jazz musicians inspire more respect or demand more attention than John Coltrane. Elvin Jones, Coltrane's drummer in “The Classic Quartet" (1961-65), said that most people who listen seriously to John Coltrane's music eventually acquire all of his recordings. I find that those who hear Coltrane for who he was want to hear all that he ...
