Jason Rigby: The Sage

Read "The Sage" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Dopo le ottime accoglienze avute nel suo esordio da leader (Translucent Space, Fresh Sound), il sassofonista newyorchese conferma d'avere idee chiare e buon talento per organizzarle. The Sage t'avvolge con un'ondata di suoni familiari, fondendo le atmosfere davisiane di fine anni sessanta (Shorter e Hancock soprattutto) con la libertà melodica e armonica di Ornette. Il tutto ...

Jason Rigby: The Sage

Read "The Sage" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni


The sophomore release of New York-based saxophonist/composer Jason Rigby features him as a unique new voice that deserves wider attention. His deep, full-bodied tenor sound and his inside-outside jazz vocabulary reference sax greats such as John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter, while his elastic sense of time sounds closer to the fluid playfulness of Ornette Coleman. His ...

The pre-Brew signs were as plain as the glasses on Stanley Crouch's face: First there was Filles de Kilimanjaro (Columbia, 1968), which codified ...

Jason Rigby: The Sage

Read "The Sage" reviewed by Troy Collins


New York-based saxophonist Jason Rigby's sophomore effort, The Sage, is the follow-up to his much-heralded premier as a leader, Translucent Space (Fresh Sound New Talent, 2006). Featuring the core members of his debut's nonet, this forceful quintet session traverses the exploratory electro-acoustic sound world of early fusion, the muscularity of hard bop, and the spacious freedom ...

Jason Rigby: The Sage

Read "The Sage" reviewed by Terrell Kent Holmes


With The Sage, Jason Rigby has composed an album that’s thought-provoking without being pretentious, accessible without being insubstantial. Rigby is a fine saxophonist who builds coherent ideas gradually without over-emoting, the sign of someone in complete control of his craft. The fluid themes and textures of “Magenta” recall an Ornette Coleman-type 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!
