Il Meglio del 2017 Secondo Luca Vitali

Luca Vitali By

Un'annata buona, caratterizzata da alcuni graditi ritorni fuori dai canonici confini del jazz: Arto Lindsay, a tredici anni dal precedente «Salt», Jon Balke, con il secondo capitolo dedicato alla musica arabo andalusa di «Siwan», e in ultimo (ma non per importanza) John Lurie, che dopo diciassette anni di oblio forzato è tornato a farci visita nei panni di Marvin Pontiac!

Parecchia buona musica ha messo in luce quanto l'Italia e l'Europa godano di buona salute, anche se così poco rappresentate nei festival e nei club italiani.

Come sempre ho privilegiato le scelte di campo decise, indifferenti ai confini tra i generi ma con una cifra stilistica unica e inconfondibile... non necessariamente i migliori dischi di jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
