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.

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, 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 ...
