Favourite Recordings from 2021

Read "Favourite Recordings from 2021" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


As per usual, the first One Man's Jazz of a new year features music from my favourite recordings of the previous year, selected from a wide range of artists from 38 countries. I thought 2021 was a fine year for releasing some very good creative music, despite the dire effect of the pandemic on the rest ...

Paula Shocron, Nendo Dango & Steven Bernstein

Read "Paula Shocron, Nendo Dango & Steven Bernstein" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Following up on music by Argentinean pianist, Paula Shocron, led me to Nendo Dango Records, the Buenos Aires label run by Shocron and her partner, drummer Pablo Diaz. This episode features very forward-thinking music from several Nendo Dango releases. There's also more piano from a new recording by Australian Alister Spence and Japan's Satoko Fujii. Their ...

Flown: Flown

Read "Flown" reviewed by Geno Thackara


As band names go, this is one with a range of possible meanings. Some searching shows that it's actually been used by a handful of different outfits ranging from punk-metal to experimental electronics. The Flown from Modena, Italy, meanwhile, finds a niche blending an insistent sense of rhythm with the looseness of free-jazz improv. They sound ...

John Abercrombie Quartet: Up and Coming

Read "Up and Coming" reviewed by John Kelman


Starting the new year with, if not precisely a bang, a nevertheless unforgettable record whose strength lies in pristine lyricism, nuanced group interplay and writing that capitalizes on the entire quartet's appreciation of subtlety over gymnastics and refined lyricism over angularity, John Abercrombie's Up and Coming--ECM's first release of the year--is also founded strongly on the ...

Clouds and Stormy Nights: A New Pair from QFTF

Read "Clouds and Stormy Nights: A New Pair from QFTF" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Germany's growing QFTF label remains ambitious as ever as 2016 draws to a close, showcasing two young off-the-beaten-path bandleaders with their own ideas of the directions modern jazz might take. With some fairly offbeat feels for melody, the pair manage to serve as two sides of the same semi-abstract coin. Matthew Sheens Cloud ...

It has been an exciting year for artists perched on the precipice between jazz and other idioms. Each of these releases manages in its own way both to challenge and to inspire the listener, and the stylistic variety on display is an encouraging sign that creative music is truly in good hands! ...

The Claudia Quintet: Super Petite

Read "Super Petite" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Preceduto dal tour che ha toccato anche l'Italia in marzo, ecco l'ottavo disco del Claudia Quintet registrato nell'agosto 2015 con la formazione modificata qualche anno fa, con Red Wierenga al posto di Ted Reichman. Con due decenni di attività continuativa, il quintetto di John Hollenbeck è uno degli organici più stabili del jazz contemporaneo e rimane ...

The Claudia Quintet: Super Petite

Read "Super Petite" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


For this widely acclaimed band's 8th album, drummer John Hollenbeck decided to compose concise pieces that get the job done in less time stating: “When the tunes are longer, there tend to be moments when not a whole lot is happening. If you have a really short tune, the whole thing has to be compelling." Hence, ...

The Claudia Quintet: Super Petite

Read "Super Petite" reviewed by Geno Thackara


If there's one thing you can pin down about the Claudia Quintet, it's their inability to be pinned down. Starting off this release with “Nightbreak" is like dropping into a soundtrack to some sleepy '50s-style arty cartoon, with an acoustic retro tone that comes from the combination of vibraphone and clarinet. The piece isn't catchy and ...
