Terence Blanchard featuring The E-Collective: Absence

Read "Absence" reviewed by Chris May


Trumpeter Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective's Absence is dedicated to saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter, who for health reasons has been obliged to retire from performing, at least temporarily. Some people celebrating their 88th birthday, as Shorter did on August 25 2021, might not welcome being the dedicatee of an album with such a title. They ...

Lyle Mays: Eberhard

Read "Eberhard" reviewed by John Kelman


When pianist, keyboardist, synthesist and composer Lyle Mays passed away at the far too young age of 66 following a long battle with a recurring (but, to this day, undisclosed) illness in February 2020, it was a major loss for his fans. It was an especially deep body blow to those who'd followed his decades-long work ...

50th Anniversary Blue Notes – August edition

Read "50th Anniversary Blue Notes – August edition" reviewed by Marc Cohn


During last month's Blue Note anniversary show we ran out of time. So this week we catch up with a Hank Mobley session for Blue Note from July 31, 1970 (well, that date was 'almost-August' anyway), after opening the show with mostly twenty-first century music. Then, it's on to Grant Green, live in Newark and Wayne ...

John Escreet: Learn To Live

Read "Learn To Live" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


From the light, airy smoothness of “Opening," through the nomadic, polyrhythmic, suite “Broken Justice (Kalief)" (which brings to contemporary life Weather Report's axiom: “Everyone solos but no-one solos") to the poppy, practically Stevie Wonder-ish “Lady T's Vibe," keyboardist/composer John Escreet's fusion proves to be a many-headed, sinewy hybrid. All are brought to the forefront on Learn ...

Joe Zawinul: Faces and Places

Read "Faces and Places" reviewed by Kris Perdew


It is reassuring and life-affirming to hear in Faces and Places, a return to form for Joe Zawinul at age 70. On this album, the Austrian-born keyboardist revisits many of the themes he originally unveiled with his famous collective Weather Report three decades ago.
