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...

DKV Trio: Latitude 41.88

Enrico Bettinello By

Sign in to view read count
Delle tantissime formazioni che vedono coinvolto il sassofonista e clarinettista Ken Vandermark, il DKV Trio con Kent Kessler e Hamid Drake a contrabbasso e batteria è una delle più longeve e significative, una sorta di unità base —che spesso si è aperta a collaborazioni —con cui sintetizzare le tante anime e i linguaggi che confluiscono in questa pratica jazzistica contemporanea.

Registrate nel 2014 allo Sugar Maple di Milwaukee e pubblicate dalla attenta label polacca NotTwo, le tre lunghe trace di Latitude 41.88 travolgono una volta di più per la natura polimorfa dell'intenzione: groove e furore di fraseggio sono il motore di una ritualità dalla collaudata forza cinetica, in cui c'è spazio anche per una ridefinizione timbrica dello spazio sonoro (esemplare in questo senso come Drake disegna letteralmente i confini della pensosa "20th Century Myth") e per la tribalità ornitologica della conclusiva "Uncontrolled Writer."

Formazione che non delude le aspettative, sia dando quello che il pubblico si aspetta, sia immettendo in questo canone flessibile un'umanità che sembra animata dal fuoco di una torcia accesa ormai 50 anni fa.

Track Listing: Faster Than It Would Be; 20th Century Myth; Uncontrolled Writer.

Personnel: Ken Vandermark: reeds; Kent Kessler: bass; Hamid Drake: drums.

Title: Latitude 41.88 | Year Released: 2017 | Record Label: NotTwo Records
