Travel: Travel

Read "Travel" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Travel compiles a musical travelogue through eight cities from Istanbul (Turkey) through Oslo (Norway) to Tokyo (Japan), rendered in the acoustic quartet sound of trumpet, piano, bass, and percussion. Composers Marco Vezzoso and Alessandro Collina don't paint strikingly different portraits but reflect each geography through the same sort of quietly intense music, and tuck an almost unbelievable amount of beautiful sound into 41 minutes. Lead and solo voices Vezzoso (trumpet and flugelhorn) and Collina (piano) receive great assistance ...

Antonio Faraò: Woman's Perfume

Read "Woman's Perfume" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Woman's Perfume esemplifica la tendenza di un certo jazz contemporaneo votato al più esangue mainstream, in cui tutto pare preordinato a tavolino.

Increased ...

Dominique DiPiazza: Spiritual Hymns

Read "Spiritual Hymns" reviewed by Phil DiPietro

While the 43-year-old French bassist (and with this recording, guitarist!) Dominique DiPiazza can claim moderate name recognition in jazz circles and a bit higher notoriety in jazz-fusion circles; it's among the bassists of the world, some of them the world's foremost players, that his name is the stuff of legend. It's not just his ungodly (poor choice of adjectives-read on) chops and his short list of super-high-end musical associates that contribute to his folkloric nature, it's his bona fide status ...
