Gustafsson / McPhee / Håker Flaten / Nilssen-Love: The Thing She Knows...

Read "The Thing She Knows..." reviewed by Chris May


The Hat Hut and ezz-thetics family of labels is in 2021 just three years shy of its fiftieth anniversary. This is a remarkable, perhaps unique, achievement for an independent company which has concerned itself exclusively with the avant-garde end of jazz and conservatoire music from the get go, and has done so with the highest (for ...

Atlantic Records: More Giant Steps: An Alternative Top 20 Albums

Read "Atlantic Records: More Giant Steps: An Alternative Top 20 Albums" reviewed by Chris May


Ahmet and Nesuhi Ertegun's Atlantic Records differs in one key respect from Prestige, Riverside, Impulse!, Strata-East and Flying Dutchman, the most prominent labels covered so far in this Building A Jazz Library series. Those labels' discographies consist almost exclusively of jazz. Atlantic had parallel interests in soul and rhythm-and-blues and, later, rock. This had consequences, as ...

Jazz & Film: An Alternative Top 20 Soundtrack Albums

Read "Jazz & Film: An Alternative Top 20 Soundtrack Albums" reviewed by Chris May


Jazz and the movies have a shared history stretching back almost a hundred years. The relationship came into its own in the US in the mid twentieth century. Elia Kazan's 1950 movie Panic In The Streets is an early example of how film makers used jazz-based soundtracks to enhance drama and atmosphere and create ambiances of ...

Michael Weiss: Soul Journey

Read "Michael Weiss: Soul Journey" reviewed by Luke Seabright


Bebop is a complex craft, and like all crafts the only way to get any good at it is by learning from those who mastered it before you. Jamming through the night, getting on to that bandstand and firing away your best improvised lines, jousting with your partners (be they friends or strangers) like in the ...

Dexter Gordon Quartet: Espace Cardin 1977

Read "Espace Cardin 1977" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Dexter Gordon left us almost three decades ago, but his presence in 2018 has virtually brought him back to center stage. The release of his biography Sophisticated Giant: The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon (University of California Press) by his wife Maxine Gordon, and the previously unreleased Dexter Gordon Quartet Tokyo 1975 (Elemental Music) have ...

Musette Explosion: Introducing Musette Explosion

Read "Introducing Musette Explosion" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Will Holshouser, Matt Munisteri e Marcus Rojas scrivono una nuova pagina nella lunga relazione che lega il jazz alla musette e, innanzi tutto, hanno il merito di non riproporre le varie tipologie dello stile manouche (a partire dalla matrice storica di Django Reinhardt e Stéphane Grappelli) scegliendo semmai di seguire un percorso analogo a quello di ...

High On Classical Gas: Jacques Loussier, Tiempo Libre and James Galway, Burgstaller Martignon

Read "High On Classical Gas: Jacques Loussier, Tiempo Libre and James Galway, Burgstaller Martignon" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Jazz and classical musics should be friends. They have much in common. It is conceivable that a synthesis of the two could be achieved as successfully as that existing between jazz and rock. However, most attempts to meld jazz and classical have yielded mediocre results. Some headway has been made. The recent appearance of pianist Enrico ...
