Adam Birnbaum: Preludes

Read "Preludes" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo


Il genio di Johann Sebastian Bach ha sempre attratto l'estro dei jazzisti sin dall'era dello swing. Questa sfida è stata raccolta negli ultimi decenni, tra gli altri, da Uri Caine, Brad Mehldau, ed oggi con buoni risultati anche dal pianista statunitense Adam Birnbaum. Il pregio di Preludes consiste nell'aver esteso la tecnica compositiva del mondo barocco con i colori dell'armonia jazzistica. Swing, virtuosismo non compiaciuto, e squisito senso melodico sono al servizio di una reinterpretazione affettuosa e riflessiva ...

Darcy James Argue's Secret Society: Dynamic Maximum Tension

Read "Dynamic Maximum Tension" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Precursore nel 2009 (con l'innovativo Infernal Machines) del nuovo rinascimento orchestrale nel jazz, Darcy James Argue approda all'etichetta Nonesuch e pubblica il nuovo album in studio: un doppio CD realizzato con i consueti partner della Secret Society più l'aggiunta della cantante Cecile McLorin Salvant e della violinista Sara Caswell. A differenza degli ultimi due dischi, Dynamic Maximum Tension non è un'opera multimediale ma conserva la spinta visionaria animata dalla costante riflessione socio-politica. Spinta che si traduce in ...

Darcy James Argue's Secret Society: Dynamic Maximum Tension

Read "Dynamic Maximum Tension" reviewed by Katchie Cartwright


Darcy James Argue's superb double-album Nonesuch debut offers compositions written throughout his career. He turns to twentieth-century thinkers for “ideas that can help us in the present, that we can reexamine and reconfigure for our own purposes." These include futurist designer Buckminster Fuller, cryptanalyst-computer scientist Alan Turing, composer-arranger Bob Brookmeyer, actress-screenwriter Mae West, trumpeter-mentor Laurie Frink, and musician-beyond-category Duke Ellington, among others. Like West, Argue seems to control his own path. He may not yet be the tycoon she was, ...

Eunmi Lee: Introspection

Read "Introspection" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Eunmi Lee is a quick learner. The South Korean-born pianist, who now makes her home in New York City, did not become acquainted with or interested in jazz until a friend introduced her to the GRP Records catalogue. That was more than a year after she had received a degree in contemporary piano from the Seoul Institute for the Arts, in 2005. Eager to learn more, Lee came to California in 2007 to take part in an open house at ...

Senri Oe: Class of '88

Read "Class of '88" reviewed by Neil Duggan


Imagine a superstar musician, someone along the lines of Ed Sheeran perhaps. Then imagine him giving up his lifestyle and commercial success just to re-awaken his love for the jazz musicians of his youth. You may think that was a difficult story to believe, but with J-Pop superstar, Senri Oe, that is exactly what happened. With 45 hit singles, numerous albums and a TV career, he had achieved mega-star status in Japan and had the celebrity lifestyle to match. At ...

Eunmi Lee: Introspection

Read "Introspection" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Korean-born, New York-based pianist and composer Eunmi Lee opens her debut record, Introspection with her original composition, “Gimmick." And, if there is a gimmick, it sounds as if it might be her strong compositional voice and her way with an arrangement. The tune features Alan Ferber on trombone, saxophonist John Ellis, a guitar, bass and drums rhythm section, and Lee in the piano chair. In spite of the album's title, this opener is a bright, sassy roller. Maybe the gimmick ...
