Gebhard Ullmann Basement Research: Hat and Shoes

Read "Hat and Shoes" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Una partenza decisamente lanciata, per poi ricondurre il tutto lungo binari concentrati e anche cerebrali più tipici di Ullmann (che del resto non disdegna impennate più vociferanti e corrugate, come qui accade per esempio in “Don't Touch My Music"), dà la stura a questo nuovo album del polistrumentista tedesco, il cui livello riporta per l'ennesima volta di attualità una domanda che ci facciamo da anni, e cioè come mai figure di questo spessore vengano così disinvoltamente, capillarmente ignorate dagli organizzatori ...
