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 Nicola Negri

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.
