Liebman, Rudolph & Drake: Chi

Read "Chi" reviewed by John Ephland

Chi is another trio outing with saxophonist Dave Liebman and percussionist Adam Rudolph, the third leg on this stool being drummer Hamid Drake. It is a kind of follow-up to 2018's alternately serene and propulsive The Unknowable (RareNoise), on which Liebman and Rudolph were joined by percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani. Unlike The Unknowable, Chi was recorded in ...

Insufficient Funs: Insufficient Funs

Read "Insufficient Funs" reviewed by Ian Patterson

An original name, if not quite such an original concept. Saxophone and drum duets used to be as rare as the proverbial hen's teeth, with John Coltrane and Rashied Ali's 1960s collaboration always the benchmark. In recent years, however, this striking duo combination has seen something of a boom. Charles Lloyd and Billy Higgins; Dave Rempis ...

Tatsuya Nakatani: Confirmation

Read "Confirmation" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Tatsuya Nakatani, Shane Perlowin: Anatomy of a Moment

Read "Anatomy of a Moment" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un'improvvisazione fortemente strutturata, di carattere non necessariamente jazzistico (semmai, per riferimenti linguistici, fra il country-blues e, più marginalmente, il contemporaneo) contrassegna quest'ottimo album del duo composto dal chitarrista di Asheville (North Carolina) Shane Perlowin e dal percussionista- rumorista giapponese (di Osaka, ma ormai di stanza in Pennsylvania) Tatsuya Nakatani, già attivo, fra gli altri, accanto a ...

Morten, J. Olsen: Bass Drum!

Read "Bass Drum!" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Norwegian, Berlin-based percussionist Morten J. Olsen's debut solo album demonstrates how far and advanced his instrumental vocabulary has become. Olsen was part of the high-energy duo MoHa, with guitarist Anders Hana, which later evolved to the powerful quartet Ultralyd, founded by legendary reeds player Frode Gjerstad. After moving to Berlin he became a member of Splitter ...

Tatsuya Nakatani & Shane Perlowin: Anatomy of a Moment

Read "Anatomy of a Moment" reviewed by Dave Wayne

On Anatomy of a Moment, Aleuchatistas guitarist Shane Perlowin joins the legendary percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani for a series of duets that are as perplexing as they are beautiful. Sticking largely to fingerstyle acoustic guitar, Perlowin's controlled and tightly parameterized improvising stands in stark contrast to Nakatani's varied and unpredictable sound experiments. While his playing in the ...
