Jazz Prospecting review by Tom Hull

Ivo Perelman/Daniel Levin/Torbjörn Zetterberg –  Soulstorm (CF 184)
Recording date just given as “April 18” — presumably before the March 2010-dated liner notes. Tenor saxophonist, b. 1961 in Brazil, based in New York, has at least 35 albums since 1989, including a few more in the queue that I haven’t gotten to yet.

Elliott Sharp – Octal Book Two (CFG 004)
Guitarist, b. 1951. AMG lists him under classical (chamber music) since 1986, although his rather large discography goes back to 1977. I hadn’t heard anything until he showed up playing Monk on Clean Feed, and now I’m up to four records, barely scratching the surface. Solo guitar — having a lot of trouble with the small print here, but the credit actually looks like “Koll 8-string electroacoustic guitarbass.” Interesting but marginal, turning ambient toward the end.
