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 Mario Calvitti

Mario Calvitti By

Premessa doverosa: la lista che segue non ha la pretesa di rappresentare il meglio dell'anno in termini assoluti (al giorno d'oggi chi è che ha la possibilità di seguire tutto quello che viene pubblicato?), né di voler definire una sorta di riassunto dell'anno appena trascorso, ma più semplicemente riflett quello che ho maggiormente apprezzato nell'ambito di quanto ho avuto modo di ascoltare nel corso del 2017, e che sicuramente continuerò ad ascoltare nel tempo.

Naturalmente l'elenco è una diretta espressione dei miei gusti personali, molto orientati sulla chitarra nella maggior parte delle sue declinazioni, e non presenta particolari sorprese; vorrei solamente sottolineare il lavoro di un outsider come Ross Hammond, che propone un nuovo splendido album solistico alla chitarra resofonica, dopo quelli altrettanto belli pubblicati negli ultimi due anni da solo o in coppia.

Buon ascolto!
