Caroline Davis, Hery Paz & Niescier/Reid/Harris

Read "Caroline Davis, Hery Paz & Niescier/Reid/Harris" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Highlights: Captivity, the new recording by saxophonist Caroline Davis is a pointedly social justice album focused on creating reflection, interrogation and amplification of the essential conversation around incarceration, the prison industrial complex & abolition. It's a very powerful project. Another excellent alto player, Germany's Angelika Niescier hooked up with premier cellist Tomeka Reid and drummer Savannah ...

Read "Wind Off The Hudson" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Bill O'Connell has had plenty to say with his piano in recent times, basically knocking out a session a year for the Savant imprint. And with an exploration within the solo format, a trip with an augmented trio, and ventures promoting a medium-sized conglomerate of heavy-hitters, he's certainly traversed quite an expanse there. But, as Wind ...

Gilad Hekselman: Ask For Chaos

Read "Ask For Chaos" reviewed by Gareth Thompson


Be careful what you ask for if chaos is on the wish list. Israeli-born guitarist Gilad Hekselman invited disorder on this, his sixth outing, by employing two distinct backing bands. And there is fun to be had in spotting discrepancies between the combos. Representing the more avant elements are Zuperoctave, whilst a touch of trad comes ...

David Virelles: Gnosis

Read "Gnosis" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Dopo il breve e visionario excursus elettroacustico di Antenna (ECM, 2016), David Virelles prosegue nella sua coraggiosa riformulazione della musica cubana sviluppando la ricerca di Mbókò, il suo debutto ECM del 2014. Se quell'album era sottotitolato Sacred Music for Piano, Two Basses, Drum Set and Biankoméko Abakuá qui il riferimento al sacro è dato ...

Steve Slagle: Alto Manhattan

Read "Alto Manhattan" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Alto Manhattan is Latino for the New York City neighborhood “upper Manhattan" (or “the heights"). It's also where veteran alto saxophonist/flutist Steve Slagle lives, making for a nice bit of wordplay in the album title. This is a well-balanced program, with just a bit more Latin tinge than average. “Family" launches the set with Latin-flavored hard ...
