Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet: The Sound Of Listening

Read "The Sound Of Listening" reviewed by Chris May

There is something tantalisingly out of reach on the Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet's The Sound Of Listening. It is not “difficult" music, but it is cryptic. After multiple replays the code remains unbroken. It seems something important is going on but... what exactly?

Coincidentally, Guiliana's pianist on ...

Eleven of the tunes presented here, in this lush landscape, come from Cohen's pen. The title piece is a ...

Gretchen Parlato: Flor

Read "Flor" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dopo un'assenza di sei anni dedicati alla maternità, Gretchen Parlato torna con un album magistrale per l'equilibrio che esprime tra ricercatezza, lirismo e intatta spinta a riformulare creativamente i brani. A capo di un nuovo organico--arricchito da Gerald Clayton al piano e tastiere, Mark Guiliana alla batteria e Airto Moreira alle percussioni e voce, in veste di ospiti--la cantante losangelina conferma in Flor la sua collocazione d'interprete assolutamente personale, che non può “temere" nulla dall'ingresso in scena delle splendide vocalist ...
