Joy in Spite of Everything
Stefano Bollani

Joy in Spite of Everything , the new album from pianist Stefano Bollani, is beautiful. Gorgeous. Peaceful. Serene. But that’s all it is. There’s no darkness for all that light to bounce off of. Featuring drummer Morten Lund, acoustic bassist Jesper Bodilsen...

The Invention of Animals
The John Lurie National Orchestra

Saxophonist John Lurie’s Lounge Lizards could function like an orchestra. On its last album, 1998’s Queen of All Ears , there was bass, drums, guitar, percussion, keys, cello and three horns. Lurie’s National Orchestra, though, was a minimal thing. Featuring...

For Living Lovers: Revealing Essence
Brandon Ross & Stomu Takeishi

“Let’s play a lot of notes.” “Let’s play loud.” These are things that were almost definitely not said during the sessions for Revealing Essence , the first album from For Living Lovers. The acoustic duo of guitarist/ banjoist Brandon Ross and bass guitarist...

I Go Humble
Travis Sullivan’s Björkestra

The Icelandic vocalist Björk makes otherworldly pop music. It’s unusual and emotional and it takes risks. So it makes little sense to arrange those sounds for big band. The big band, by necessity, is one of the safest endeavors in jazz. With so many players...
