Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri

Nicola Negri By

Sign in to view read count
Per chi non se ne fosse accorto, stiamo vivendo un momento musicale straordinario, fatto di ricerca senza confini, ibridazioni linguistiche e condivisione di esperienze spesso agli antipodi—insomma diametralmente opposto al periodo storico, in cui l'ignoranza miope delle nuove destre vorrebbe tenerci divisi, ancorati ad un'idea identitaria ormai superata dalla storia.
Dal jazz più classico alle contaminazioni rock e noise, dall'improvvisazione libera alla ricerca pura della composizione contemporanea, anche questo 2018 ha visto una produzione discografica di livello altissimo, con vecchi e nuovi maestri impegnati a ridefinire i confini delle musiche creative.
Buon ascolto.

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.
