The Ganelin Trio: Creative Tensions

Read "The Ganelin Trio: Creative Tensions" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Imagine a time, not so very long ago, when a foreign Jazz/Improvising Trio created such a stir in Britain that they made the TV news! Imagine the national newspapers queuing round the block for interviews. And imagine London's Bloomsbury Theatre filled with musicians, journalists and arts administrators--not to mention the odd, very odd, raincoated spook.

Read "Us" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Read "Intonema's Fifth Anniversary" reviewed by John Eyles


As it reaches the fifth anniversary of its first release, it seems a fitting time to reflect on how Intonema is progressing. Initially, the label attracted attention because it was based in St. Petersburg, on Russian soil, a novelty at the time.

Gratkowski / Kruglov / Nabatov / Yudanov: Leo Records 35th Anniversary - Moscow

Read "Leo Records 35th Anniversary - Moscow" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


It would be suitable for UK-based Leo Records' 35th anniversary concert to be held at an arts venue in Moscow. It's the third anniversary concert thus far and reminds many of us avant jazz advocates that this record label has been the primary conduit between Russian's frequently cloistered, cutting edge artists and the West, hearkening back ...
