Rich Halley: The Shape Of Things

Read "The Shape Of Things" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

After starting his own Pine Eagle label, in 2010, Halley added eleven stimulating albums to his discography, featuring bassist Clyde Reed and his son, drummer Carson Halley. In 2019 Halley started fronting the equally ...

Rich Halley: The Shape Of Things

Read "The Shape Of Things" reviewed by Troy Dostert

One thing is certain when approaching a Rich Halley recording: it's likely that you will hear the history of the saxophone in his playing. He's as capable of filling the room with fractured sound as he is in gently ruminating over a haunting phrase, and bop licks are as common as noisy abstraction on his albums; ...

Rich Halley, Matthew Shipp, Michael Bisio, Newman Taylor Baker: The Shape Of Things

Read "The Shape Of Things" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In 2019, with almost two-dozen albums as a leader, Rich Halley broke his twenty-year streak of recording without a pianist as part of his various formations. It was Matthew Shipp who altered the saxophonist's course on Terra Incognita (Pine Eagle Records) which featured Shipp's trio with bassist Michael Bisio and drummer Newman Taylor Baker. That successful ...

Rich Halley: The Shape Of Things

Read "The Shape Of Things" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Nobody rips it up like Portland, Oregon-based tenor saxophonist Rich Halley. Whether he is playing with his West Coast crews on sets like The Literature (Pine Eagle Records, 2018) or The Outlier (Pine Eagle Records, 2016), or recording with his New York City compatriots on Terra Incognita (Pine Eagle Record, 2019). And now we have--with, again, ...

Rich Halley: Terra Incognita

Read "Terra Incognita" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Ultimo di una lunga serie, quest'album di Rich Halley vede il settantatreenne tenorsassofonista di Portland affiancato da quello che, in buona sostanza, è il trio del pianista Matthew Shipp, con Michael Bisio al contrabbasso e Newman Taylor Baker alla batteria. Formazione dunque di grande prestigio e affiatatissima, la quale si mette alla prova su sei improvvisazioni, ...

Terra Incognita

Label: Pine Eagle Records
Released: 2019

Rich Halley: Terra Incognita

Read "Terra Incognita" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

On paper this is a very promising match-up: uninhibited tenor saxophonist Rich Halley backed by the relentless force of pianist Matthew Shipp and his current trio. For the most part, the resulting session delivers on its promise although at times Halley's playing is shoved so far to the front of the mix it drowns out everything ...

Rich Halley: Terra Incognita

Read "Terra Incognita" reviewed by Troy Dostert

In a musical career that stretches back to the 1980s, tenor saxophonist Rich Halley has stoutly maintained his independent path in creating jazz that is inspired by the freedom of the '60s avant-garde but which also draws liberally from the language of bop. You can hear both Albert Ayler and Sonny Rollins in his playing. But ...

Rich Halley with Matthew Shipp, Michael Bisio and Newman Taylor Baker: Terra Incognita

Read "Terra Incognita" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Rich Halley's leader debut Multnomah Rhythms (Avocet, 1983) featured a large ensemble, a formation that the saxophonist favored for the better part of two decades. When he pared back personnel, he was equally committed to his quartet, recording six albums with trombonist Michael Vlatkovich, bassist Clyde Reed and son, Carson Halley on drums. The Outlier (Pine ...

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.
