Antonio Borghini: Banquet of Consequences

Read "Banquet of Consequences" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Dalla fine degli anni Novanta avevo assistito all'esordio di Antonio Borghini in seno al collettivo bolognese Bassesfere, al fianco di Fabrizio Puglisi, Cristina Zavalloni, Domenico Caliri, Edoardo Marraffa e tanti altri. Già nei primi anni del Duemila il contrabbassista aveva cominciato a collaborare anche con maestri internazionali del calibro di Tristan Honsinger, Anthony Braxton, Butch Morris, John Tchicai... Da quando nel 2009 ha deciso di spostarsi a Berlino, come altri cervelli in fuga alla ricerca di ulteriori esperienze ...

Somersaults: Numerology Of Birdsong

Read "Numerology Of Birdsong" reviewed by John Sharpe

Without fanfare, the rhythm section of bassist Olie Brice and drummer Mark Sanders has become one of the UK's premier engine-rooms for free improvisation. That's borne out by association with not only the great reedman Tobias Delius, perhaps best known for his tenure in the ICP Orchestra, but also players as diverse as Polish reedman Mikolaj Trzaska and British saxophonist Rachel Musson. Both Brice and Sanders enjoy an almost telepathic communication, which enables handbrake turns and smooth accelerations, juxtaposed with ...

Martin Blume, Tobias Delius, Achim Kaufmann, Dieter Manderscheid: Frames & Terrains

Read "Frames & Terrains" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Tirato in soli 300 esemplari su vinile, quindi con la classica divisione per facciate che giocoforza separa a sua volta in due parti la suite del titolo, peraltro frutto di un'unica seduta di improvvisazione totale, questo lavoro (live a Colonia, 9 giugno 2016) esprime e documenta pregi e difetti della formula, per la verità più i secondi dei primi, benché il quartetto che ne è artefice includa almeno due eminenze grigie del ramo (Tobias Delius e Achim Kaufmann).

Martin Blume / Tobias Delius / Achim Kaufmann / Dieter Manderscheid: Frames & Terrains

Read "Frames & Terrains" reviewed by John Sharpe

Previous collaborations between British-born (though to an Argentinean father and a German mother) reedman Tobias Delius and German pianist Achim Kaufmann include appearances in drummer Christian Lillinger's Grund and in the European version of NYC singer Fay Victor's Herbie Nichols project, so their pairing as part of a co-operative quartet on Frames & Terrains is not without precedent. That's as it should be as their partnership is a marriage made in heaven. Both prefer the road less travelled and bring ...

Tobias Delius / Olie Brice / Mark Sanders: Somersaults

Read "Somersaults" reviewed by John Sharpe

Any lineup which contains reedman Tobias Delius deserves attention. Born in England to an Argentinean father and a German mother, Delius was a longtime staple of the adventurous Amsterdam scene before his relocation to Berlin in 2007, though he's still a fixture with the ICP Orchestra. On Somersaults, he teams up with the talented British rhythm tandem of bassist Olie Brice and drummer Mark Sanders, who also helm the wonderful Riverloam Trio with Polish reedman Mikolaj Trzaska. As a threesome ...

Tobias Delius: Apa Ini

Read "Apa Ini" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

The many sides of Tobias Delius and the instincts he spurs in his band are in vibrant evidence on this record. Delius can be a brawny player, his tone big and overwhelming as he struts across the canvas of a song, but he also shows a quieter, pragmatic side that is spelt out in the thoughtful exploration of a theme.

The other members of the band conceptualize the ideas and fashion music that inveigles itself into the ...
