Il Meglio del 2016 Secondo Ludovico Granvassu

Ludovico Granvassu By

Sign in to view read count
Che anno! La musica di alta qualità continua ad arrivare inarrestabile. La preparazione di questa lista è stata quasi dolorosa per la scelta crudele di limitare il numero dei CD a 12 e quello dei concerti a 10. Ma tant'è. Questi saranno CD e concerti che rimarranno per me indelebilmente legati al 2016, con una menzione d'onore particolare per le sorprese inaspettate, quale lo splendido disco di Brahja Waldman, lo spiazzante album di Koh, il sontuoso progetto di Nels Cline e l'inaspettato ritorno dei A Tribe Called Quest. Tra le esperienze dal vivo un pareggio tra il viaggio nostalgico nel progetto di Hal Willner dedicato a Nino Rota, l'esplosiva Michael Leonhart Orchestra e la scoperta, per me, della cantante Krystle Warren.
