Beekman: Vol. 2

Read "Vol. 2" reviewed by Luca Muchetti


A oltre un anno di distanza dall'album che segnò l'esordio del collettivo di musicisti, Beekman torna con un Vol. 2 che, nelle tracce di questo ultimo lavoro, prosegue sostanzialmente la linea di quella prima esperienza. Non è una nota di demerito, anzi. Nel jazz uno degli aggettivi più usati e abusati è “cosmopolita," per indicare musica ...

Stream: Second Stream

Read "Second Stream" reviewed by Troy Dostert


It is always a pleasure to hear a working band. Not a one-off meeting, or an all-star project hastily thrown together, both of which often promise more than they deliver--but a genuine team of musicians committed to a shared musical vision, one that can be honed and refined over the long course of a true collaborative ...

Beekman: Vol. 02

Read "Vol. 02" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Beekman is a super-tight collective quartet whose members hail from three (count 'em) different continents. Pianist Yago Vazquez is from Spain, reedman Kyle Nasser is an American, and the entire rhythm section--bassist Pablo Menares and drummer Rodrigo Recabarren--hails from Chile. Their prosaically-titled sophomore album, Vol. 02, is more-or-less in the same brainy-but-chill modern jazz style as ...

Yago Vazquez/Scott Lee/Jeff Hirshfield: Stream

Every once in a while, a studio recording depicts the spirit and sensitivity of a live club date. Stream, the self-titled release by the trio consisting of pianist Yago Vazquez, bassist Scott Lee, and drummer Jeff Hirshfield, does just that.
