Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

01. Skuli Sverrisson, Oskar Gudjonsson -The Box Tree (Mengi -2013).
I miei musicisti preferiti del momento, alle prese con musica meravigliosa.

02. Billie Holiday -The Complete Verve Studio Mastertakes (Verve)
Con Teddy Wilson, Lester Young, Roy Eldridge etc... Un classico!

03. Duke Ellington -Duke Ellington and his Orchestra 1940 (Classics Records).

04. Jimmy Noone -Jimmy Noone's Apex Club Recordings (Vocalion).
Bellissimo esempio di New Orleans Style senza tromba, con una meravigliosa versione di "Sweet Lorraine."

05. Louis Armstrong -The Complete Hot Five and Hot Seven Recordings (Columbia).
Il miglior assolo mai suonato lo trovate in "Big Butter and Egg Man."

06. Joe Henderson -In and Out (Blue Note -1964).
Ho ripreso ad ascoltarlo recentemente. Mi stende ancora!

07. Shadow Music of Thailand -(Sublime Frequencies -2009).
Alessandro "Asso" Stefana me l'ha fatto conoscere dal catalogo Sublime Frequencies. Molte cose interessanti e divertenti. Lontano Oriente.

08. AfroCubism -AfroCubism (Nonesuch -2012).
Particolarmente indicato da ascoltare quando si viaggia.

09. András Schiff/Beethoven -Complete Piano Sonatas -(ECM -2006).
Anche questo piacevole da ascoltare durante i viaggi. Ho studiato alcune di queste sonate da bambino, uno strano cibo per l'anima.

10. Coleman Hawkins -1944 -(Classics Records).
Adoro il Coleman Hawkins di questo periodo, qui con Teddy Wilson e in alcune infuocate jam con Don Byas e Ben Webster.
