Terry Adams: Terrible [Deluxe Edition]

Read "Terrible [Deluxe Edition]" reviewed by Dave Linn


Terry Adams is best known for his work with the seminal band, NRBQ (New Rhythm & Blues Quartet). Their self-titled debut (Columbia, 1969), included Sun Ra's “Rocket Number Nine."

In 1994, Anderson (dismayed by the ...

Bobby Previte: Boom-Boom. Due volte Boom

Read "Bobby Previte: Boom-Boom. Due volte Boom" reviewed by Vic Albani


Dopo sostanziali anni di attività per certi versi limitata, il genio Bobby Previte torna a cavalcare comete musicali di infinita bellezza e intelligenza. Credo esistano ben pochi musicisti così profondi, analitici, curiosi ed allo stesso tempo così schivi e umili come Previte, da sempre nel cuore di ogni illuminato cultore di musiche moderne. Illuminato forse proprio perché la musica del batterista di New York di origini italiane rischiara il buio dai tempi dello straordinario Bump the Renaissance del ...

Keith Pray: Universal Blues

Read "Universal Blues" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


The opening sounds of Keith Pray's Universal Blues present a sonic gateway that ultimately leads to an overall significant musical experience. Throughout his career, saxophonist Pray, a highly talented and well-respected upstate New York artist, has been an avid explorer of textures and tonalities. With Universal Blues he and his mates deliver an intelligent and intriguing album.

Bobby Previte, Jamie Saft and Nels Cline: Music from the Early 21st Century

Read "Music from the Early 21st Century" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


Music from the Early 21st Century presents music captured during a brief trio tour by keyboardist Jamie Saft, guitarist Nels Cline and drummer Bobby Previte, performing completely improvised music. “Fundamentally, it's based around the classic organ trio formation--drums, Hammond organ and guitar," Saft explains. “But it just blows up the language to so many different universes." “Captured during a brief trio tour" doesn't do justice to this wild, ravenous sound. Trapped and caged like a snarling animal seems ...

Bobby Previte: Rhapsody

Read "Rhapsody" reviewed by Stefano Merighi


Rhapsody è la seconda parte della trilogia che Bobby Previte ha dedicato al tema del viaggio e dello sradicamento, intitolata Terminals. Si tratta di un lavoro ardito e complesso che testimonia della sensibilità che il batterista e compositore americano ha maturato in questi anni e che lo colloca in una dimensione assai diversa rispetto al jazz comunemente inteso. Rhapsody è infatti costituito da un ciclo di songs, più o meno estese, melodicamente compiute, aperte a sequenze di ...
