Il Meglio Del 2018 Secondo Giuseppe Segala

Giuseppe Segala By

La produzione del 2018 è stata copiosa e alcuni grandi protagonisti, come Henry Threadgill e Steve Coleman, hanno pubblicato documenti significativi della propria attività. Ha fatto giustamente scalpore il ritrovamento delle registrazioni di John Coltrane, pubblicate con il titolo Both Directions at Once, che aggiungono motivi di riflessione e piacere a chi non si stanca di frequentare la stupefacente accelerazione di Trane negli anni Sessanta. Alcuni lavori sono di ascolto impegnativo: i sei CD dedicati dal chitarrista Miles Okazaki all'opera omnia di Thelonious Monk e il triplo CD di Tyshawn Sorey: batterista, multistrumentista e compositore che non disdegna certo le sfide. Mi permetto di segnalare le due recensioni per me più significative: di Luca Canini per Coltrane e di Stefano Merighi per Steve Coleman.
