Musician

Sam Gendel

Sam Gendel’s Nonesuch Records debut album, Satin Doll, will be released March 13, 2020. Recorded in Gendel’s native California, Satin Doll is a futuristic homage to historical jazz. The album features three musicians—Gendel on saxophone, Gabe Noel on electric bass, and Philippe Melanson on electronic percussion—engaging in simultaneous synchronized sonic construction/deconstruction of jazz standards, including Miles Davis’ “Freddie Freeloader,” Charles Mingus’ “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat,” and Duke Ellington’s “Satin Doll.” A Gendel-produced video for the album track “Afro Blue” by Mongo Santamaria may be seen below

Ludovico Granvassu's 2021 Sonic Delights

Read "Ludovico Granvassu's 2021 Sonic Delights" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Jazz is not a competitive sport and “Best Ofs" are misnomers. End of the year listicles have no bearing on the artistic standing of the albums they include, or on those they neglect, just like a five star review doesn't make the album it graces any better than it already is. But, apparently, humans ...

Carlos Niño: More Energy Fields, Current

Read "More Energy Fields, Current" reviewed by Chris May


Los Angeles-based percussionist, producer and sometime radio DJ Carlos Niño is active in jazz and new age music. His new age work, though immaculately crafted, is of limited interest from an AAJ perspective. But his jazz projects repay close attention. An early landmark was Horace (Elephant, 2001), singer Dwight Trible's salute to pianist, bandleader and community ...
