Rich Halley: Boomslang

Read "Boomslang" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Jazz has, to some extent, always been about making connections and pointing out interrelations. Ever since Buddy Bolden blew his cornet in New Orleans around the start of the twentieth century, listeners have been playing connect the dots, linking Bolden's innovations to King Oliver and Oliver's to Louis Armstrong, likewise Buck Clayton to Dizzy Gillespie and ...

Halley-Clucas-Reed-Halley: Boomslang

Read "Boomslang" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Rich Halley has a thing about snakes. Those on the receiving end of a postal delivery from the Portland, Oregon-based saxophonist are likely to find a serpent coiled in the upper right hand corner of the envelope--a stamp featuring scarlet king snake, perhaps. Or maybe some sort of pit viper. And speaking of pit vipers, Halley ...

Rich Halley: The Shape Of Things

Read "The Shape Of Things" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

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, ...
