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 2017 secondo Libero Farne

Libero Farnè By

Sign in to view read count
Per quanto mi riguarda le novità più sorprendenti le ho ascoltate a Bolzano (Warped Dreamer e il trio In Love With con i fratelli Ceccaldi) e a Saalfelden (Eve Risser e Roberto Negro). L'Europa si conferma quindi una fucina di idee originali e di notevole spessore. E l'America? Più dei nomi emergenti (James Brandon Lewis, Joshua Abrams, Kris Davis...) mi pare che le cose migliori le abbiano espresse protagonisti e gruppi già ben consolidati (Claudia Quintet, Human Feel, Cuong Vu, Craig Taborn, Vijay Iyer, Steve Coleman, Tim Berne, Michael Formanek, Matt Wilson...), oltre ai decani Roscoe Mitchell e Wayne Shorter. In Italia si riscontra un livello medio molto elevato rispetto un tempo: anche qui nomi nuovi e proposte articolate stilisticamente su un'ampia gamma di approcci.
