Tim Berne's Snakeoil —
Deceptive 4 ... CD Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy 2CD ...
Out Of Stock
There's nothing deceptive about this quartet – as the group work here live, completely unfettered – with the kind of honest, open interaction that have made Snakeoil one of the greatest musical contributions from reedman Tim Berne! The lineup has a special sort of edge – no bass, ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A hell of a record from the great Andrew Cyrille – and one that lives up to his key legacy of solo percussion records from back in the day! Cyrille's very first date as a leader was a solo percussion set – and for years, he's continued to be one of the best performers in the mode ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Axel Dorner/Rudi Mahall/Jan Roder/Uli Jennessen —
Die Enttauschung ... CD Crouton/Intakt (Switzerland), 2004. Used ...
Free jazz at its purest, a limited edition slice of work by the Die Enttauschung quartet – headed by trumpeter Axel Dorner and bass clarinetist Rudi Mahall – and featuring work by Jan Roder and drummer Uli Jennessen. The style is similar to that on some of Dorner's other recent ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A record that moves far beyond familiar piano trio format – so much so, that it's probably wrong to even call it a piano trio record at all – as the keyboard work of Alexander Hawkins is equally wrapped around the bass of Neil Charles and drums of Stephen Davis, as all three rise and ...

Christoph Irniger on tenor sax, Stefan Aeby on piano, Dave Gisler on guitar, Raffaele Bossard on bass, and Michi Stulz on drums. (Jazz) CD
Really beautiful solo piano work from Marie Kruttli – her first session of this type, and one that may well set a tone for other sessions of this nature in years to come! Marie's got this way of handling the keys of the piano with this resonantingly introspective quality – almost as if ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Ingrid Laubrock on saxophone, Liam Noble on piano, and Tom Rainey on drums. (Jazz) CD
Sublime solo bass work from Joelle Leandre – and a set that's brimming over with the sorts of qualities that first made us fall in love with her music so many decades ago! Leandre's an improviser, and she can play quite freely – but she also never seems to lose a sense of warmth that ... (Jazz) read moreCD
James Brandon Lewis —
Molecular ... CD Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ...
Saxophonist James Brandon Lewis just keeps getting deeper and deeper with each new release – very different than the artist who first emerged a number of records back, and one with a strong ability to explore the farther sides of the jazz spectrum! That's definitely the case here – as ... (Jazz) read moreCD
An album that feels even more spiritual and soulful than anything we've heard before from tenorist James Brandon Lewis – and that's really saying a lot, given the records he's given us before! There's a lean, open energy to the record – a laidback group that features some especially ... (Jazz) read moreCD

An intimate set of duets between these two top-shelf improvisers – both of whom work together in the Snakeoil band of Tim Berne, but who sound even better here in more airy, open territory! Berne blows alto, Mitchell handles piano, and the results are wonderful – introspective, but ... (Jazz) read moreCD
We love saxophonist David Murray in many settings, but one of our favorites is often a more stripped-down mode – which, with the right approach, lets Murray really open up and show us some of the more rhythmic sides of his playing! That's definitely the case here, as Murray blows tenor and ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A set that does a fantastic job of blending Cuban roots and modern jazz – but at a level that's completely unlike any other project of this nature! Aruan Ortiz doesn't just take direct inspiration from Cuban music – and instead, he clearly drinks deep, absorbs the right aspects, then ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A record with a very careful approach to sound – very slow-building work on soprano sax from Evan Parker, matched with equally thoughtful electronics from Matthew Wright – both players coming together in one of the most subtle executions of this mode we've ever heard! And that quality ... (Jazz) read moreCD
