Bergamo Jazz Festival Bergamo Varie sedi 21-24.3.2024 La quarantacinquesima edizione di Bergamo Jazz coincide con il passaggio di testimone nella direzione artistica da Maria Pia De Vito allo statunitense Joe Lovano, più volte ospite come musicista della rassegna orobica. La formula è quella consolidata da anni: tre serate con doppio concerto al Teatro Donizetti, l'utilizzo di una serie di location dislocate tra città alta e città bassa, che recuperano luoghi storici e suggestivi, e la ...

Joe Lovano: da New York a Bergamo

Read "Joe Lovano: da New York a Bergamo" reviewed by Libero Farnè


Joe Lovano è di casa in Italia. Non so quanto in questo possa influire l'origine siciliana della sua famiglia; penso che la ragione sia da ricercare piuttosto, oltre che nell'estroversa giovialità del carattere, nella sua vocazione di globetrotter che lo ha portato in ogni angolo del mondo con le più svariate formazioni, sue o di altri leader. In una delle sue prime apparizioni italiane, nel novembre 1990, partecipò a Jazz'n Fall di Pescara come membro del quartetto di ...

Read "Umbria Jazz Winter 30" reviewed by Libero Farnè


Umbria Jazz Winter 2023 Orvieto Varie sedi 28.12.2023--1.11.2024 Umbria Jazz Winter, tutto concentrato nel centro storico di Orvieto, è un festival a misura d'uomo. Prestigiose le sue sedi, tutte raggiungibili a piedi in trasferimenti di pochi minuti: il Teatro Mancinelli, prezioso teatro all'italiana della seconda metà dell'Ottocento, il maestoso Palazzo del Popolo, che sotto le sue volte medievali in tufo accoglie il pubblico nella Sala Quattrocento e, al piano terra, nella Sala Expo, dedicata ad ...

Ivo Perelman: Reed Rapture in Brooklyn

Read "Reed Rapture in Brooklyn" reviewed by Jeff Schwartz


Is this album fundamentally unreviewable? Are there jazz fans who do not immediately know if they need an 11-hour collection of 103 improvised duets between Ivo Perelman and a dozen saxophonists and clarinetists? It is at least describable. Perelman is faithful to his tenor, while his partners bring examples of nearly every type of saxophone, from soprillo to contrabass, as well as most of the clarinet family. Although all tracks are free improvisations, the default mode is ...

Joe Lovano Trio Tapestry: Our Daily Bread

Read "Our Daily Bread" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Rising from a serene inner place, the music takes shape like prayer. That it is prayer that lies at the beating heart of all eight spacious spirituals that comprise Our Daily Bread, should come as no surprise. Bearing the expressive quietism of his ancestors--John Coltrane, Sonny Stitt, and Ornette Coleman among them--saxophonist Joe Lovano has never hid his leaning towards higher powers. Imagine Trio Tapestry's third deep listening, deeply rewarding ECM release as a house of worship at ...

Joe Lovano: Cleveland's Ultimate Jazz Titan

Read "Joe Lovano: Cleveland's Ultimate Jazz Titan" reviewed by Matthew Alec


Friday, June 24th, 2022, saxophonist Joe Lovano's group Sound Prints (alongside trumpeter and co-leader Dave Douglas) delivered a tour de force performance to spellbound audience members at the historic Mimi Ohio Theatre in Playhouse Square as a part of Cleveland's annual Tri-C JazzFest. Seasoned group interplay between drummer Rudy Royston, bassist Matt Penman, and pianist Leo Genovese characterized the quintet's languid execution of modern bop-fueled repertoire and served as the perfect complement to the colorfully virtuosic musical conversations between Lovano ...

Ivo Perelman: Reed Rapture in Brooklyn

Read "Reed Rapture in Brooklyn" reviewed by Mark Corroto


"Let's play two," the famous line by the Cubs Hall-of-Fame baseball player Ernie Banks in 1969, uttered when the temperature in Chicago had reached 105 degrees (40.5 celsius) and his teammates were exhausted, might find its analogy with this massive undertaking from saxophonist Ivo Perelman. At eleven hours in length though, the two games Banks cited are not single games, but more like two double-headers here. Like the baseball infielder, Perelman has limitless energy and a never-ending appetite for creativity, ...
