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...

Il meglio del 2016 secondo Claudio Bonomi

Claudio Bonomi By

Una top ten ecumenica quella del 2016 che prende un po' da tutti i generi e da tutti i Paesi. Si decolla da casa nostra, dalle Marche per la precisione, con gli Agorà che tornano alla ribalta con un live avvincente e non scontato che vede l'Area Patrizio Fariselli alle tastiere elettriche, per atterrare in Indonesia con un due album davvero top class firmati dal chitarrista Dewa Budjana e dal tastierista Dwiki Dharmawan che riescono nell'impresa impossibile di mettere d'accordo gli appassionati di rock, jazz e progressive. Bravo a Leonardo Pavkovic della Moonjune Records a valorizzare una scena, quella di Bali e dell'Indonesia in generale, che merita davvero una maggiore considerazione.

Da segnalare anche l'opera meritoria della finlandese Svart Records che ha recuperato registrazioni dal vivo inedite di gruppi scandinavi jazz rock degli anni Settanta come, ad esempio, quelle della band del chitarrista Nono Soderberg e dei Finnforest.

E, infine, un tributo speciale a Mike Westbrook che a ottant'anni suonati sforna un capolavoro come Paris.
