Daniel Bennett Group at Tomi Jazz

Read "Daniel Bennett Group at Tomi Jazz" reviewed by

Daniel Bennett Group Tomi Jazz New York, NY August 19, 2017 The Daniel Bennett Group is a summer camp that never sleeps. Like the best-run such operations, it's an oiled machine that runs on freedom and strict supervision in equal measure. The multi-instrumentalist and his core band of Nat Janoff (guitar) and Matthew Feick (drums) are scoutmasters of the highest integrity, who as such know that all the merit badges in the world ...

Charlie Rauh: Viriditas

Read "Viriditas" reviewed by

With each new project, guitarist Charlie Rauh redefines the parameters of “intimate" as a musical concept. Viriditas is no different. He cradles this set of eight originals, recorded over a brief session in the south of France, like the newborn nephew to whom “Augustine" is dedicated. Even without the backstory, its promise of new life is obvious, by which nostalgia is proven to be more than a yearning for that which can never be recovered, but total immersion in the ...

Rene Marie at Dazzle

Read "Rene Marie at Dazzle" reviewed by

Rene Marie Dazzle Denver, CO August 4, 2017 Rene Marie exudes joy. Over the course of an 80 minute set, she can evoke nearly every human emotion, but it's joy that comes across most often. That's how much she loves to sing. She even had to divorce her husband of 23 years after they got in a fight about whether he would allow her to sing. He said no. She said goodbye. That was 20 ...

Jorg Schippa's Kiosk: Jorg Schippa's Kiosk

Read "Jorg Schippa's Kiosk" reviewed by

There are numerous jazz inferences on this sprightly and diverse trio date led by German guitarist Jorg Schippa, but most tracks are blended with dissimilar genres. Indeed, variety is a common denominator throughout as the band funnels punk jazz, rock, blues and other classifications into the grand schema. The program receives some added luster via the crystalline audio processes as the leader meticulously builds his solos with faint use of distortion, other than a few movements where he amps it ...

Jukka Eskola: Soul Trio

Read "Soul Trio" reviewed by

Jukka Eskola is a Finnish trumpeter, well known among Scandinavian audiences particularly from his membership of the now inactive but well loved Five Corners Quintet. In fact despite the band's title, only four of the ten tracks on offer here feature only the Trio, and of the rest two actually feature a majority of the Quintet's members. With the addition of Ville Herrala on bass and Magnus Lindgren on flute, playing 'Railyard Boogie' the band sounds very ...

Remembering John Abercrombie

Read "Remembering John Abercrombie" reviewed by

This interview was first published at All About Jazz in March 2002. After several years of groove-based and straight-ahead playing guitarist/composer John Abercrombie found his niche in the mid-70'’s with open-oriented Europeans and Americans who often recorded for ECM records. He has broadened his approach over the years with Eastern influences, electronics, and free music although he maintains a strong sense of the jazz tradition. He plays a variety of interactive music, refusing to be limited or compromised. ...

Read "Groovin’ Hard In Every Style" reviewed by

Big Mean Sound Machine Runnin' for the Ghost Peace & Rhythm | Blank Slate Records 2017 On Runnin' for the Ghost, Big Mean Sound Machine sounds intent on obliterating every imaginable musical border: the lines between regional or geographic styles, the divide between acoustic and electronic instruments, the boundary between live and sampled music, the gap between ancient and contemporary music...just about any and every musical “box" you can think of.
