Thomson Kneeland: Mazurka For A Modern Man

Read "Mazurka For A Modern Man" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza


Thomson Kneeland makes a creative surge on Mazurka For A Common Man, with wide-ranging music that captures the bassist's skills as a writer--a trait in evidence right from his first CD, The Voice of Blood (Weltschmerz Records, 2001).

Kakalla: The Seeds of Analog Rebellion

Read "The Seeds of Analog Rebellion" reviewed by Florence Wetzel


The Seeds of Analog Rebellion is the outstanding new CD by Kakalla, a Massachusetts-based quartet that successfully blends jazz and electronics. And not only: Kakalla's influences include traditional and modern Bulgarian music, Greek rembetika, Albanian folk music, and rock n' roll.

Kakalla: The Seeds of Analog Rebellion

Thomson Kneeland, the leader and bassist of Kakalla, succeeds admirably in bringing together chamber music, European music, and a bit of rock with a compact jazz sensibility into a remarkable whole that at once grabs attention and draws the ...
