Anthony Braxton, Tomas Fujiwara, Tom Rainey: Trio (New Haven) 2013

Read "Trio (New Haven) 2013" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

L'abbinamento spericolato di ance e batteria rappresenta uno dei motivi più penetranti del jazz contemporaneo e continua a essere praticato con pregnanza a abbondanza: se i lavori recenti di Roscoe Mitchell con Tyshawn Sorey e Mike Reed ne disegnano l'aspetto più metafisico e astratto, le numerose escursioni di Ken Vandermark con Paal Nilssen-Love tracciano percorsi audaci ...
