Jazz em Agosto 2018

Read "Jazz em Agosto 2018" reviewed by Petra Cvelbar

For the first time in its history, the entire Jazz em Agosto programme was organised around a single musician. And the choice could hardly fall on a more striking name--both for the history of the festival and for the fundamental course of music he helped shape in the last decades: John Zorn, an artist with a ...

The Thing: Again

Read "Again" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Wait for it. Wait. At some point during a performance or recording by the trio known as The Thing, the band attempts to rip your face off, beginning with your ears. It's been that way since they were founded in 2000. The Swedish/Norwegian free jazz/garage band have become a kind of jazz/punk royalty, cutting huge swaths ...

Read "Flukum" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Continua l'attività del collettivo artistico afro-americano Heroes Are Gang Leaders, fondato dal poeta Thomas Sayers Ellis e dal sassofonista James Brandon Lewis.

James Blood Ulmer: Baby Talk

Read "Baby Talk" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It was a predestined meeting. This collaboration between the legendary guitarist James Blood Ulmer and the band The Thing. Ulmer, who cut his teeth with the soul jazz organists Hank Marr, Larry Young and Big John Patton before collaborating with Ornette Coleman's electric free jazz/funk harmolodic music, expanded upon Coleman's ideas, incorporating rock music with players ...

Konstrukt: Molto Bene

Read "Molto Bene" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Many listeners still cannot fathom the concept of Turkish free jazz. Consider though, the origins of free jazz both in North American.

But let us recognize that Europe produced Evan Parker (England), Bengt Nordström (Sweden), John Tchicai (Denmark), Peter Brötzmann (Germany), ...

Read "Ears Are Filled With Wonder" reviewed by John Sharpe

Iconoclastic German reedman Peter Brötzmann has appeared in almost every conceivable combination and circumstance over the years, from the maelstrom of Last Exit to the austere horn choir of Sonore, via hook ups with almost everyone in between, counting such free jazz luminaries as Cecil Taylor, Anthony Braxton and Evan Parker. However on Ears Are Filled ...

Merzbow/Keiji Haino/Balazs Pandi: An Untroublesome Defencelessness

Read "An Untroublesome Defencelessness" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The often repeated refrain to a complaint about music is, “If it's too loud, then you're too old," doesn't apply to An Untroublesome Defencelessness by Merzbow, Keiji Haino, and Balázs Pándi. You probably should just agree, it is too loud. With any Merzbow record, it just seems to never gets old.

Of late, Merzbow's, ...
