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...

Peter Kuhn, Dave Sewelson, Gerald Cleaver, Larry Roland: Our Earth / Our World

Alberto Bazzurro By

Parte subito lancia in resta questa lunga (almeno quanto a durate dei singoli episodi, svarianti dagli 11 ai 25 minuti e rotti) impro session, che coinvolge musicisti rodati senza peraltro ascendere, se non a sprazzi, a risultati pari alle attese. Come fin troppo spesso accade in frangenti del genere, infatti, sembra mancare una reale linea-guida, cosicché gli esiti appaiono troppo strettamente connessi ad accadimenti tutto sommato contingenti.

I momenti migliori, per quanto sopra, sembrano di conseguenza arrivare nella seconda parte dell'iniziale (e più ampio) "Our Earth," in particolare attorno all'assolo di sax baritono (cui poi si unisce l'alto), e nel conclusivo "It Matters," aperto dal solo contrabbasso (archettato), cui poi si uniscono i compagni, che in lenta progressione macinano free senza esasperazioni (altrove, in particolare nell'episodio centrale, non manca per contro una certa enfasi, una certa tendenza all'iperbole).

Alla fine quello che ci rimane dentro è un senso di sostanziale inappagamento, anche un po' di confusione e incertezza, verso qualcosa che avrebbe potuto essere e in buona parte, invece, non è stato.

Track Listing: Our Earth; Our World; It Matters.

Personnel: Peter Kuhn: sax alto e tenore, clarinetto; Dave Sewelson: sax baritono e sopranino; Larry Roland: contrabbasso; Gerald Cleaver: batteria.

Title: Our Earth / Our World | Year Released: 2016 | Record Label: pfMentum
