André Carvalho: Lost In Translation

Read "Lost In Translation" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Bassist Andre Carvalho conceived this album around the concept of “untranslatable words"—words for concepts that have no equivalent outside of their native language. He has used this idea to create a cycle of amorphous composition, realized here by a trio of bass, guitar and saxophone with the occasional addition of trumpet. The words come from languages ...

Solo Piano - Yin and Yang

Read "Solo Piano - Yin and Yang" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Cornelius Claudio Kreusch Transformer Self Produced 2021 Though it's easy enough for a player to find a home niche, Cornelius Claudio Kreusch sounds like he won't really be satisfied until he's practically tried them all. Classically-trained and having whirled through fusion, funk, Latin, African, film scores and probably too much else ...

Lionel Loueke: I Dare You

Read "Lionel Loueke: I Dare You" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Though 2020 proved to be challenging, to say the least, Lionel Loueke can look back on a year blighted by the COVID-19 pandemic with some personal satisfaction.

Raphaël Pannier Quartet: Faune

Read "Faune" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Lisa Maxwell's Jazz Orchestra: Shiny!

Read "Shiny!" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Lisa Maxwell, whose album Shiny! marks the recorded debut of her New York City-based Jazz Orchestra, is a pretty good composer and a very good arranger, even though several of her charts lean toward funk / rock, admittedly an acquired taste. Once she veers away from those two-beat cadences, as on “Ludie," “The Craw," “Hello, Wayne?" ...
