Il meglio del 2017 secondo Libero Farne

Libero Farnè By

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
