Orquesta del Tiempo Perdido: Sepk

Read "Sepk" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Un'aria vagamente zappiana, ma del resto prossima anche a svariati altri (eventuali) referenti fra quanti amino mettere a “friggere" insieme ingredienti di diversa provenienza (colpendo fin da una copertina abbastanza sorprendentemente à la Baglioni degli anni d'oro...) è quanto ci arriva da questo singolare album olandese (ma portoghese per produzione), il terzo dell'ensemble diretto dal chitarrista-tuttofare Jeroen Kimman. Nel mare magnum dei dodici brani proposti, tutti targati Kimman (due decisamente ampi, gli altri molto meno), si respirano ...

Rodrigo Almonte: Distancia

Read "Distancia" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


"Every piece of music on Distancia is an honest representation of a pilgrimage of different distances that I had to walk, musically and geographically speaking, in order to find inspiration and to create a representation of myself as a musical nomad," explains guitarist Rodrigo Almonte, who was born and raised in Peru, completed Bachelor of Arts studies in Ireland and Brazil, and his Masters studies in New York and The Netherlands. As a result, Distancia presents a unique ...

Michael Moore, Django Bates, Lucia Cadotsch, Benjamin Koppel & More New Releases

Read "Michael Moore, Django Bates, Lucia Cadotsch, Benjamin Koppel & More New Releases" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Django Bates celebrated his 60th birthday and 40th anniversary as a musician while marking Bird's centennial with adventurous and witty arrangements for the Norrbotten Big Band. That gives us a cue to look into more Scandinavian and large-ensemble music, following the adventures of Bates' bassist Petter Eldh, as part of the much awaited return of Lucia Cadotsch's Speak Low project in which he works side-by-side with Swedish saxophonist Otis Sandsjo who, in turn, can be found in Martin Perret's L'Anderer. ...

NDR Big Band with Michael Moore: Sanctuary

Read "Sanctuary" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Sanctuary rilegge in formato orchestrale dieci composizioni di Moore, già incise in precedenza con sue formazioni; brani che acquisiscono nuove identità grazie agli arrangiamenti dello stesso leader e di tre colleghi: il prestigioso orchestratore olandese Henk Meutgeert e i pianisti/compositori Christian Elsasser e Frank Calberg. Quest'album realizzato con la famosa big band tedesca è un'occasione per riaffermare il valore di Michael Moore sia come solista che come compositore, come fanno altre recenti produzioni discografiche: Cretan ...

Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet

Read "Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


Si aggiungono due nuovi lavori al sostanzioso catalogo Ramboy, l'etichetta autogestita dal sassofonista e clarinettista Michael Moore, fondata nel 1991, che documenta l'attività ampia e multiforme del musicista. La conoscenza di Moore è forse maggiormente legata alla sua presenza nel Clusone Trio, formazione nata nel 1988 con Ernst Reijseger al violoncello e Han Bennink alla batteria (in un primo momento c'era pure Guus Janssen al pianoforte) nell'ambito dello storico festival della cittadina bergamasca: musicisti che già da tempo collaboravano, in ...
