Jason Stein / Damon Smith / Adam Shead: Volumes & Surfaces

Read "Volumes & Surfaces" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Damon Smith might be the hardest working man in show business. Free-jazz show business, that is. If there is a performance or recording somewhere in the States or Europe, there is a very good chance his double bass is in attendance. You name an improvising artist and he's recorded with them, from Roscoe Mitchell to Joe ...

Stephen Gauci, Sandy Ewen: Studio Sessions Vol. 6

Read "Studio Sessions Vol. 6" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Una lunga scorribanda tenoristica, piena zeppa di ruvidezze e intemperanze varie, il tutto attraverso otto episodi e quaranta minuti abbondanti di musica: ecco cosa ci offre, con episodiche pause-oasi più riflessive, questo sesto volume della saga delle Studio Sessions di Stephen Gauci, qui in compagnia della giovane chitarrista Sandy Ewen, il cui apporto, non fosse altro ...

Danny Kamins: Disruptor

Read "Disruptor" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Does saxophonist Danny Kamins's solo recording Disruptor act as an introduction to the various ensembles of which he is a member? Or do those group recordings prepare us for this solo outing?

Stephen Gauci / Adam Lane / Kevin Shea: Bulletins From The Frontline

Read "Stephen Gauci / Adam Lane / Kevin Shea: Bulletins From The Frontline" reviewed by John Sharpe


Until the pandemic hit, tenor saxophonist Stephen Gauci's trio, with bassist Adam Lane and drummer Kevin Shea, formed the keystone of the Bushwick Improvisers Series organized by the hornman. The band had played every week since the summer of 2017, give or take the occasional substitution, either as a threesome or with the addition of guitarist ...

Stephen Gauci / Sandy Ewen: Studio Sessions Vol. 6

Read "Studio Sessions Vol. 6" reviewed by John Sharpe


One of reasons label boss and tenor saxophonist Stephen Gauci appreciates performing with Texan guitarist Sandy Ewen so much is that she doesn't play anything which demands a rote response. Ewen forms one quarter of Gauci's regular quartet, which appears on Live At The Bushwick Series (Gaucimusic, 2019) and Studio Sessions Volume 5 (Gaucimusic, 2020), but ...

Mendoza / Anderson / Gauci: Studio Sessions Vol. 4

Read "Studio Sessions Vol. 4" reviewed by John Sharpe


If you want to avoid compromise, then starting your own label appears a sound strategy. That's the road traveled by NYC-native saxophonist Stephen Gauci with his eponymous imprint. Since its inception in 2019, releases have been split between live recordings from the Bushwick Improvisers Series which Gauci runs and studio sessions, all of which so far ...
