Julie Sassoon, Willi Kellers: Waves

Read "Waves" reviewed by John Eyles

Paul Hubweber / Frank Paul Schubert / Alexander von Schlippenbach / Clayton Thomas / Willi Kellers: Intricacies

Read "Intricacies" reviewed by John Sharpe


As titles go, Intricacies stands as one of the more appropriate. Not so much in the sense of obscurity or being difficult to understand, but rather with reference to the entanglements engendered by the ear stretching five way interplay. Recorded in the German capital's B-Flat club in early 2014 the 2 CD set captures a multi-generational ...

Fabric Trio: Murmurs

Read "Murmurs" reviewed by John Sharpe


While it would be an exaggeration to suggest that there was a house style for the adventurous Lithuanian No Business imprint, the European saxophone trio nonetheless forms a significant strand in its output. Recent winning entries in the format have included sets from the Anglo Polish Riverloam Trio, Thomas Borgmann's excellent US-German unit, and Evan Parker's ...
