Okdoke; Nik Bärtsch's Continuum review submitted; next up, hopefully this weekend: the BGO reissue of Steve Khan's three Eyewitness albums (Eyewitness, Modern Times, Casa Loco) on two CDs. Totally paradigm-shifting music from a guitarist who is all-too-often overlooked, despite a career's worth of tremendous solo albums and appearances with other artists.
First review up: BGO Records' two-CD reissue of Steve Khan's stellar Public Access (1990) and Crossings (1994), plus three tracks from 1992's Headline, the latter featuring two different lineups. This compilation continues the strides Steve made with his Eyewitness Trilogy of 1981's Eyewitness, 1982's Modern Times and 1984's Casa Loco, reissued in 2016 by BGO (and reviewed here: https://www.allaboutjazz.com/steve-khan-eyewitness-trilogy-by-john-kelman.php).
My review of the final entry in ECM's Re:solutions reissue series, Abdullah Ibrahim's African Piano, today at All About Jazz: http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=46696&width=768#.UxSIopK9KSN
My review of Adam Adam Holzman's unexpected The Deform Variations, today at All About Jazz. What's no surprise is the virtuosity Holzman brings to this compilation of improviser solo piano improvisations, played each night as the intro to Steven Wilson's "Deform to Form a Star" during the progressive rocker's 2013 world tour: http://www.allaboutjazz.com/adam-holzman-the-deform-variations-by-john-kelman.php
