New reviews from One Final Note:
30 January 2006
One (Thirsty Ear)
by John Eyles
Given his recent history of pushing at boundaries, experimenting and taking risks with form and content, it appears that Shipp has played it safe here.
Credo (Clean Feed)
by Troy Collins
More edgy and invigorating than Renku, with strong guest appearances, this 1999 session is a truly wonderful discovery.
Live in Japan 2004 Strange Village
by Jay Collins
Every so often, a record comes along from an established artist that makes one reassess his or her accomplishments.
Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey
The Sameness of Difference (Hyena)
by David Dupont
Like the Bad Plus, JFJO incorporates elements of contemporary pop into the venerable piano trio format.
Some Love Songs (Pirouet)
by Chris Kelsey
Copland’s trio breathes together as a single entity, which is pretty much the way jazzâ€”of whatever persuasionâ€”should be played.
The Village Voice provides the review.
Here’s another unique and cool idea. EARLabs provides link to and reviews of music released by both elabels and traditional labels. The musical focus seems to be electronic and ambient, and if you follow the links, at least some of the albums are available for free.
Here’s something I never thought I’d post. It is a UK commercial for a Honda and…well just take a look. Turn up those speakers and make sure you watch the rehearsal as well.
