Jamie Saft: Solo a Genova

Read "Solo a Genova" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jamie Saft's first solo album in his twenty-five year career, Solo A Genova, captures this restless, daring artist interpreting a selection of songs that reflect his eclectic taste as a reflection of his customary willingness to challenge himself. The sum effect of hearing this recording from Italy in March of 2017 is an altogether glorious experience ...

Jamie Saft: Solo a Genova

Read "Solo a Genova" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Jamie Saft's Solo A Genova is a revelation. It is, in an extensive discography, his only alone-in-the-piano-chair outing. Saft has made a wide-ranging mark in collaborations with Slobber Pup, Metallic Taste of Blood, The Spanish Donkey and Berserk! These group names don't say it all, but do probably say something (Brash? Unconventional? Loud?) about the ...

Read "Jamie Saft: Jazz in the Key of Iggy" reviewed by Luca Canini

In 1988 Bill Laswell produced Iggy Pop's album Instinct. Back then, little he could have known that, almost thirty years later, he would have been instrumental in facilitating the iconic singer's first foray in the Jazz world. Loneliness Road (RareNoiseRecords) documents the latest incarnation of James Newell Osterberg Junior, the front man of proto-punk band The ...

Jamie Saft: il jazz secondo Iggy Pop

Read "Jamie Saft: il jazz secondo Iggy Pop" reviewed by Luca Canini

Chissà come l'avrebbe presa Bill Laswell se qualcuno nel 1988, durante la lavorazione di Instinct, gli avesse detto che un giorno lontano una trentina d'anni avrebbe contribuito a spingere Iggy Pop sulla strada del jazz. E non del quasi jazz o del jazz pop, ma del jazz quello vero, fatto di arpeggi eleganti e notturni, di ...

Jamie Saft: Loneliness Road

Read "Loneliness Road" reviewed by Doug Collette

Much of Iggy Pop's early notoriety in his days with the Stooges was predicated on shock value. These days his durability and longevity as an artist render his continued presence only slightly less startling: the seminal punk-rocker is hitting his seventieth decade, a milestone few might've forecast for him around the time of Raw Power (Columbia, ...

Jamie Saft, Steve Swallow, Bobby Previte. E Iggy Pop. Se state pensando che stiamo in qualche modo dando i numeri, pardon i nomi, siete totalmente fuori strada. Che ci fanno alcuni tra i più vispi e duttili musicisti della New York Area con il papà del proto-punk? Semplice: un bel disco.

Di Saft, ...

Bill Brovold, Jamie Saft: Serenity Knolls

Read "Serenity Knolls" reviewed by Andrea Murgia

Noto ai più come fenomenale organista e pianista della scena newyorchese più sperimentale nei progetti di John Zorn e Joe Morris, Jamie Saft è in realtà anche un chitarrista (e slidista) che non ti aspetti. Cresciuto a pane, Bob Dylan e Paul Bley, Saft non è nuovo a puntate lontano dagli ottantotto tasti, basti pensare a ...
