Drummer Gerald Cleaver, bassist William Parker, and pianist Craig Taborn team up as Farmers By Nature – a nice improvisational trio set for the always fertile Aum Fidelity label! The set starts out with a sparely furnished, truly elegiac "For Fred Anderson" – a really strong ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Beautifully sensitive work from saxophonist Darius Jones – a record that features these nicely-building lines on alto sax – played with an offbeat approach to tone! Jones has some very unusual inflections on his horn here – so that even some of the gentler moments still have a ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A very unusual album from reedman Darius Jones – a special project dedicated to the legendary French vocalist Brigitte Fontaine, with vocals that definitely recall the singer at some of her most adventurous moments! Fontaine's no stranger to the racks at Dusty Groove – as we've loved ... (Jazz) read moreCD
