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 Libero Farnè

Libero Farnè By

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.
