Jonathan Kreisberg: A Spirit Captured in Constant Motion

Read "Jonathan Kreisberg: A Spirit Captured in Constant Motion" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Over 3,000 miles separate jny: New York City from Europe. A distance that feels a little smaller every day--traveled in a virtual way in less than a second, even physically in a matter of only roughly 7 hours. Musicians especially are prone to crossing the pond rather frequently. New York-based guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg tends to make ...

Jonathan Kreisberg: Capturing Spirits - JKQ Live!

Read "Capturing Spirits - JKQ Live!" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Throughout his over 30 year-spanning career, Jonathan Kreisberg has made a name for himself that reaches beyond his reputation as a dexterous bop-guitarist that frames him as a leading composer of the modern jazz variety. Like any song from the sacrosanct repertoire of standards, Kreisberg's compositions reveal memorable heads with a cleverly wrought spin to them. ...

Aka Moon - Una Doverosa Retrospettiva

Read "Aka Moon - Una Doverosa Retrospettiva" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Constellations Box 1992>2015 (OutThere Music) raccoglie i frutti dei primi 25 anni di attività del trio belga Aka Moon. La cosa che sorprende di più all'ascolto di questo voluminoso cofanetto è che il gruppo non abbia ancora ricevuto il riconoscimento internazionale che merita assolutamente. Nonostante la corposa discografia di altissimo livello finora realizzata, raccolta in questo ...

Read "Nylon Strings and Other Things: Albums by Jean Chaumont and Kreisberg/Veras" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Nylon-string acoustic guitars don't crop up in jazz all that often, but when they do the results can be delightful. Below I discuss two very different albums which incorporate that distinctive sound. The Beauty of Differences Misfitme 2018 Jean Chaumont's album The Beauty of Differences bogs down in ...

On the Road, Fellini & All That Jazz

Read "On the Road, Fellini & All That Jazz" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

The Road. A place that inspires both composing music and listening to it. In this episode of Mondo Jazz we'll focus on music about a road to Timbuktu, French, Italian and Brooklyn streets, being on the road and the road as a metaphor for a jazzist's necessary openness to the unexpected. Not to mention, ...

Eric Le Lann: I Remember Chet

Read "I Remember Chet" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

French trumpeter Eric Le Lann has a bit part in Bertrand Tavernier's 1986 film Round Midnight, the story of a French jazz fan's friendship with wayward American jazz musician Dale Turner, played by tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon. Le Lann plays a French jazz trumpeter--not much of a stretch. More to the point, the film's story mirrored, ...

Nelson Veras: R/B

Read "R/B" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nelson Veras non è quello che sembra. Gli piace depistare. Ha un nome francese, ma è nato a Salvador de Bahia (Brasile). Poco meno che ventenne si è trasferito in Francia e ha incontrato Pat Metheny. Qualche anno dopo si è messo subito in gioco con Eric Barret, Michel Benita e Aldo Romano. Ha inciso un ...
