Il meglio del 2018 secondo Angelo Leonardi

Angelo Leonardi By

Sign in to view read count
Ogni linguaggio che partecipa alla multiforme scena del jazz contemporaneo ha espresso dischi eccellenti, equiparabili per valore artistico . Dal mio punto di vista, accanto alle opere di veterani sempre creativi come Henry Threadgill, Kenny Barron, Bill Frisell e Franco D'Andrea, ho ammirato i lavori di quaranta/cinquantenni come Jamie Saft, JD Allen, Michael Leonhart, Edward Simon e del nostro Riccardo Brazzale, il leader della Lydian Sound Orchestra.
Senza dimenticare le trentottenni Mary Halvorson e Anat Cohen a dimostrazione che "l'altra metà del cielo" ha saldamente occupato i vertici della nostra musica. Il più giovane è Aaron Parks, anche se da tempo ha oltrepassato la categoria del talento emergente.

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.
