Il meglio del 2016 secondo Libero Farnè


Sign in to view read count
Che dire? Annata mossa con brio, intrigante se si ha la curiosità di setacciare fra le varie edizioni discografiche, che ormai non sono più espressione di un mercato orientato e condizionante. Ottime conferme (Henry Threadgill, The Claudia Quintet, Franco D'Andrea...), ma anche novità di spessore da batteristi sempre più di riferimento (Jaimeo Brown, Matt Wilson...) e sorprendenti ritorni (Ellery Eskelin, Tino Tracanna...).

Per quanto riguarda i concerti ascoltati qua e là, ho voluto mettere l'accento su alcune favolose solo performance. In ognuna delle due categorie mi sembra inevitabile mettere in evidenza che oggi il jazz italiano è al livello di quello internazionale, evidenziando anzi proprie peculiarità.
