Low On Alice Coltrane, Harsh Winters, And Other Inspirations For Their Haunting New Album

Under The Influence is a new revival of a very old Stereogum franchise, in which we ask artists to talk about the inspirations behind their albums. From other music, to film, to novels, to stray notes left behind by friends, and who knows what else, this is what’s on people’s minds when they’re writing the songs we eventually come to know and love.

How Music Unites Us All: Herbie Hancock & Kamasi Washington in Conversation

For the indefinite time being, we live with fear atop anxiety, anxiously looking for order in the past and in the future. But some people with newfound leisure in their coronavirus isolation have returned to what matters to them most here and now, and started to imagine a world no policy proposal can describe. The internet has given us greater and greater access to people who have been doing this all along. Even before the current pandemic, artists like Herbie Hancock and Kamasi Washington ...

Album Review: Flying Lotus’ ‘Flamagra’

Veteran DJ/producer/artist/rapper Flying Lotus operates in a sort of netherworld between electronic, hip-hop, jazz and funk, without being particularly anchored in any earthly genre. He’s signed to the electronic label Warp, is the nephew of jazz great Alice Coltrane and the grandson of Marilyn MacLeod (cowriter of Diana Ross’ hit “Love Hangover”), and has worked […]

8 Jazz Covers Of “My Favorite Things” That Are Better Than “7 Rings”

Ariana Grande has had a pretty rough 2019, huh? And it's all thanks to "7 Rings," a song she's gotten a pretty sour critical reception over for a host of reasons. Some of them are related to the song itself: its "retail therapy" consumerism is empty; it's maybe a Princess Nokia ripoff; it's trying too … More »

The 10 Best Ambient/Instrumental Albums of 2018

None When Brian Eno set the rules for the genre in 1978 with Music for Airports and the subsequent Ambient series, ambient music was simpler; he defined it as "as ignorable as it is interesting."Forty years later, ambient can mean anything from slow-moving tape loops to earsplitting Ampex noise. Hell, St. Vincent's Masseduction is even classified as "ambient pop" on Wikipedia. Music that gets slapped with the genre tag isn't always ignorable -- or interesting, for that matter. And the music tha...

Alice Coltrane :: Jaya Jaya Rama

The humidity continues to linger, so we’re choosing to sweat it out with this fierce slice of late night free jazz. “Jaya Jaya Rama,” the closing number to Alice Coltrane’s 1969 lp, Huntington Ashram Monastery, is pure, unabashed expression. Featuring Coltrane on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Rashied Ali on drums, the trio takes […]

The 50 Best Ambient Albums of All Time: A Playlist Curated by Pitchfork

What makes a good ambient record? I’m not sure I can even begin to answer that question, and I count myself a longtime fan of the genre, such as it is. Though conceived, ostensibly, by Brian Eno as modernist mood music—“as ignorable as it is interesting,” he wrote in the liner notes to 1978's Ambient 1: Music for Airports—the term has come to encompass “tracks you can dance to all the way to harsh noise.” This description from composer and musician Keith Fullerton Whitman at Pitchfork may not g...

Stream the “Complete” John Coltrane Playlist: A 94-Hour Journey Through 700+ Transformative Tracks

In a contrarian take on the legacy of John Coltrane on the 50th anniversary of his death last year, Zack Graham at GQ did not recommend Giant Steps nor A Love Supreme nor Blue Train nor My Favorite Things as the most important album in the artist’s career, but a record most casual jazz fans may never encounter, and which even the hardest-core Coltrane fans never heard in his lifetime. Recorded in the year of his death, Interstellar Space—a frenetic suite of free jazz duets with drummer R...

The 21 Best Album Re-Issues of 2017

21. Can - The Singles (Mute) Not only is a compilation a good way to offer an overview of an artist's best work, as a summation of a career and a primer for new listeners, but in the case of this hugely entertaining collection, showcase a side of a band that's gone rather unappreciated.

It's becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of new releases in stores in a given week, and even more daunting to stay on top of archival reissues.

Finally It's Time To Acknowledge And Celebrate Alice Coltrane

Why hasn't her music been appreciated before? Well, it's kind of like John Lennon and Yoko Ono: "Her talents weren’t hugely appreciated in the 1960s. This was partly due to the man with whom she fell in love in 1963. John Coltrane became her husband two years later and asked her to step into his […]

Utrecht’s Le Guess Who? Isn’t Like Any Festival You’ll See In The USA

These days, whenever all the big-name American festivals start to announce their lineups for the year, there's inevitably a certain, noticeable same-ness. It's a consequence of those festivals becoming more popular than at their inception, with festival-going becoming an overall more mainstream activity in America; it's a consequence of the music industry's contractions and … More »
