The Jeff Gauthier Goatette: Open Source

Read "Open Source" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Open Source would have made a good alternative name for violinist Jeff Gauthier's ensemble, as it draws inspiration from myriad sources. Goatette continues its near twenty-year journey into territory ranging from avant-garde and sci-fi soundscapes, and deep funk grooves colored by searing electric guitar, to an altogether more pastoral melodicism reminiscent of the Mahavishnu Orchestra at ...

The Jeff Gauthier Goatette: Open Source

Read "Open Source" reviewed by John Kelman


When two-thirds of a group has “effects" in their instrumental credits, it's a safe bet this ain't your granddaddy's jazz. When it's violinist Jeff Gauthier's Goatette, punctuating the quirky theme in the first moments of “40 Lashes (With Mascara)" with thundering drums and high-octane power chords, it's clear that Open Source is going to make plenty ...

The Jeff Gauthier Goatette: House of Return

Read "House of Return" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Violinist/producer Jeff Gauthier is well-known for his cutting-edge solo work and being a proponent of his label's crystalline, sonic engineering process, where most all the details and nuances can be detected, even with low-budget stereo equipment. The Goatette's third release continues to demonstrate the musicians' nearly telepathic interactions amid an abundance of structured and improvisational components.

The Jeff Gauthier Goatette: One and the Same

Read "One and the Same" reviewed by Brad Glanden


When most of the members of a jazz lineup are credited with “effects" along with their respective instruments, there may be reason to suspect that a dependence on electronics may be masking a deficiency of technical skill. Such is not the case with the Jeff Gauthier Goatette. To the contrary, the group's expert balance between the ...

The Jeff Gauthier Goatette: One and the Same

Read "One and the Same" reviewed by John Kelman


Despite its considerably smaller output, the Los Angeles-based Cryptogramophone label could well be considered the American companion to ECM Records' distinctive aesthetic. Attention to sound quality and packaging has been integral to the label's approximately thirty releases, which have ranged from graceful elegance to outré experimentation, comprising a discography that's as worthy of brand loyalty as ...

The Jeff Gauthier Goatette: One And The Same

Read "One And The Same" reviewed by Troy Collins


One And The Same is violinist Jeff Gauthier's fourth recording with his Goatette quintet and his second on the Cryptogramophone label, of which he is also founder and producer. But Gauthier's group is no mere vanity project. His roots in West Coast improvisation reach back two and a half decades, most notably to the co-founding of ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
