Il meglio del 2017 secondo Nicola Negri

By

Sign in to view read count
Un altro anno di musica straordinaria: dodici dischi (e una manciata di concerti memorabili) per riflettere sul 2017 appena concluso. Maestri come Wadada Leo Smith e Roscoe Mitchell continuano a stupire per coraggio e coerenza; Nicole Mitchell e Satoko Fujii si confermano musiciste e compositrici di valore assoluto; si delineano nuove prospettive grazie a Irreversible Entanglements, Hear in Now, Lisa Mezzacappa, Miles Okazaki; The Necks e Sexmob ripropongono formule consolidate eppure sempre appassionanti; la libera improvvisazione supera ogni confine con Otomo Yoshihide, Hiroshi Yamazaki, Evan Parker e il glorioso Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza.

Buon ascolto.
