Like American Vanity (Creative Nation, 2002), this is a solo guitar effort mixing unusual covers with quirky originals, all delivered with the Boston-based artist's extroverted minimalism. There are no disposable ...

Pat Metheny: One Man's Band

Read "Pat Metheny: One Man's Band" reviewed by Tom Greenland

In plays such as Medea and Alcestis, the ancient Greek tragedian Euripides was roundly criticized, even parodied, for his use of an artificial plot device or deus ex machina ("god from the machine"), because it violated narrative logic and challenged the audience's suspension of disbelief. Guitarist Pat Metheny, never one to shy away from wrathful gods, ...

Larry Coryell: Making the Changes

Read "Larry Coryell: Making the Changes" reviewed by Tom Greenland

“This is all Coltrane, from his early/middle/late period, whatever that means!" laughs guitarist Larry Coryell. He is sitting backstage in the green room at Iridium in 2009, describing a chart he is about to try out with organist Joey DeFrancesco. “And then this part here is very much like 'All Blues,' like Miles," he says, humming ...

David Berger Jazz Orchestra: Colorizing the Classics: David Berger's Tribute to Harry Warren

Read "Colorizing the Classics: David Berger's Tribute to Harry Warren" reviewed by Tom Greenland

Arranger/recomposer David Berger's music is likely to prompt mixed reactions for its mixing of traditional values with creative originality, somewhat akin to Ted Turner's colorizing of classic black and white films. Colorizing the Classics is a big-band follow-up to I Had the Craziest Dream (Such Sweet Thunder, 2008), an octet outing also championing the works of ...
