WDR Big Band Köln : Blues & Beyond
Basta dare un'occhiata ai musicisti coinvolti ed ai titoli in scaletta per avere una chiara idea della musica contenuta in questo album. Il genere non è di quelli che prediligo. Ma quando è suonato in questo modo, da autentiche colonne della storia del jazz, da musicisti che hanno fatto questa musica, che l'hanno davvero vissuta e non ce la ripropongono in modo posticcio... beh, confesso che con mio stesso stupore mi ritrovo a muovere il piedino, coinvolto ed emozionato.

Un tuffo negli anni d'oro del jazz, con alcuni brani che ancora oggi mostrano una freschezza sconvolgente ("Bag's Groove" o "It Don't Mean a Thing").

Nostalgico.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
