I tratti costanti sono il marcato interplay che lega gli strumentisti e la particolare attrattiva dei temi, sia nella dimensione melodica che in quella ritmica. I brani ...

Mural: Tempo

Read "Tempo" reviewed by John Eyles


The most significant thing about Tempo is that it was recorded live in concert at the Rothko Chapel in Houston, Texas. This octagonal space (pictured on the album cover, right) opened in 1971, a year after Mark Rothko's death. It is sparsely furnished and painted white, with fourteen of Rothko's late works--large black canvasses--displayed around its walls. All of this gives the chapel a unique ambience that is conducive to quiet contemplation, if not prayer. It has inspired musicians ranging ...

Source: Bennett Jackson

Santa Cruz, California's Kuumbwa Jazz Center has grown from its small beginnings to one of the most highly respected jazz-presenting institutions in the country, attracting artists of national and international renown.

The artists were chosen by Kuumbwa Jazz as musicians that have been ...

Philip Stein, Muralist Who Adorned Village Vanguard Jazz Club, Dies

On the back-wall mural at the Village Vanguard, the famous jazz club in Greenwich Village, a primordial man and woman burst from a kaleidoscopic background of brightly colored geometric forms.

For more than 40 years musicians have gazed, perhaps with some puzzlement, at this visionary artwork, suggestive of birth, creative dynamism and human aspiration. Patrons seated on bar stools at the back of the club have come to think of the big, curved mural as a visual counterpart to the ...

But those are just my predictions. Let's hear what people less jaded have to say -- the children, in particular. The Intel Computer Clubhouse Network on Thursday launched ...
