Chasing The Masters: First Takes Of A Modern Drumming Artist

Read "Chasing The Masters: First Takes Of A Modern Drumming Artist" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Chasing The Masters: First Takes Of A Modern Drumming Artist Phil Haynes 296 pagesISBN: #979-886-0200883 Self Published 2023 I recently attended several recitals by instrumentalists, composers, and arrangers from the renowned Jazz Studies Program at William Paterson University. The level of musicianship was uniformly high in these stimulating and thought-provoking performances, and the alleged homogeny of jazz in the academy was nowhere to be found. Hearing idealism and enthusiasm in the emerging, ...

Introducing Jazz History And Literature, Reconceived

Read "Introducing Jazz History And Literature, Reconceived" reviewed by Phillip A. Haynes


When I was invited to offer jazz coursework in 2007, as Bucknell University's first Kushell Jazz Artist-in-Residence, my Chair asked what single subject I thought was most important to teach. I responded, “an integrated jazz history & literature sequence, including a semester of classic jazz and one of modern jazz." To which he replied, “Fine, just as long as you can craft it so that both music majors and non-majors can take your courses successfully, without prerequisites, and yet all ...

Jim Yanda: A Silent Way

Read "A Silent Way" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


Il titolo e i riferimenti evocati da questo album del chitarrista di avanguardia Jim Yanda, sono piuttosto scivolosi. Volutamente. Per fortuna John Cage ha già ampiamente chiarito che il silenzio non esiste in quanto tale e quindi il percorso silenzioso intrapreso da Yanda non ha punti in comune, se non nelle cose ovvie, con il percorso che caratterizzava “In a Silent Way," uno dei capolavori più luminosi di Miles Davis. Messa in questo modo, la questione potrebbe apparire ...

No Fast Food: Setting For Three

Read "Setting For Three" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Ci eravamo occupati quattro anni fa del trio No Fast Food, recensendo il doppio CD In Concert (clicca qui per leggerne la recensione); adesso la formazione torna a pubblicare un nuovo lavoro, il terzo, anche stavolta su composizioni scritte dal batterista Phil Haynes. Come era da attendersi dai musicisti che lo compongono, il lavoro è molto libero e aperto, pienamente paritetico, estremamente vario in atmosfere e stilemi, pur conservando una narratività che lo mantiene ancorato alla tradizione — ...

Phil Haynes & Free Country: My Favorite Things (1960-1969)

Read "My Favorite Things (1960-1969)" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Tre strumenti a corde--chitarra, contrabbasso, violoncello--più la batteria del leader sono l'insolita formazione con la quale Phil Haynes, batterista dalle collaborazioni eccellenti, oltre che titolare di numerosi progetti a proprio nome, da anni scandaglia e reinterpreta il repertorio della tradizione americana. In My Favorite Things 60/69 inserisce alcuni brani dei Beatles, che americani non sono (ma come si può ignorali se ti occupi degli anni sessanta ?) e per quasi due ore mostra come un patrimonio musicale apparentemente intoccabile possa ...
