Bathysphere: Bathysphere

Read "Bathysphere" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il sassofonista olandese Jorrit Dijkstra e il pianista greco Pandelis Karayorgis vivono negli Stati Uniti da vari anni (il primo dal 2002, il secondo dal 1985). Entrambi sono docenti al New England Conservatory di Boston, sono compositori interessati alla libera improvvisazione e all'elettronica e collaborano nel quartetto Matchbox e nel più noto The Whammies, un ensemble ...

The Claudia Quintet: Super Petite

Read "Super Petite" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Except for a brief dalliance with the ingénue Lucy, drummer and bandleader John Hollenbeck has been faithful to his Claudia for nearly twenty years. Super Petite is the 8th release and 7th on Cuneiform Records. Actually, the band leader has had others. Besides his Lucy Quartet, there is his John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble, Refuge Trio, duos ...

La generosità di Jorrit Dijkstra

Read "La generosità di Jorrit Dijkstra" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Cinquantenne sassofonista di Eindhoven, anima (fra le altre) di The Whammies, gruppo dedito alla rilettura del songbook di Steve Lacy, Jorrit Dijkstra sforna album con una certa generosità tramite la sua etichetta discografica Driff Records, evitando accuratamente i colpi a salve.

Bathysphere: Bathysphere

Read "Bathysphere" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Driff Records labelmates, pianist Pandelis Karayorgis and reedman Jorrit Dijkstra assembled this impressive lineup with the intentions of keeping the “individual musicians in mind." The group moniker relates to a deep-sea submersible apparatus that draws a parallel to the ensemble's deep dive musical exploits. The band imparts a translucent region of sound via asymmetrical elements of ...

Jorrit Dijkstra: Music for Reeds and Electronics - Oakland

Read "Music for Reeds and Electronics - Oakland" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Il sassofonista e compositore olandese Jorrit Dijkstra, classe 1966, da anni negli States e allievo di Steve Lacy, Misha Mengelberg e Bob Brookmeyer, presenta in questo lavoro una serie di composizioni per quintetto di sole ance, nelle quali però sperimenta anche l'uso dell'elettronica.

Al suo fianco troviamo musicisti importanti, tra i quali spicca--specie ...

Bolt: Shuffle

Read "Shuffle" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Improvvisazione totale per quartetto: ecco quanto ci offre questo album, seguendo una pratica assai diffusa, in cui peraltro--come per l'appunto nel caso specifico--l'ampia conoscenza reciproca dei performer favorisce la messa a punto di forme riconoscibili e, per quanto possibile, risolte.

Aiuta anche il fatto che, bene o male, la configurazione del gruppo segue ...

The Whammies: Play The Music of Steve Lacy Vol. 3, Live

Read "Play The Music of Steve Lacy Vol. 3, Live" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The third volume of Steve Lacy dedications by the cover/not cover band The Whammies is a live recording from their 2014 tour. Recorded in Italy and Austria, the band performs their self-described “instant-arranging" of mostly Lacy tunes that in true-to-form fashion elicit surprise and clever improvisation.

Saxophonist Steve Lacy, who passed away in 2004, would ...

Before We Say Goodbye To 2012

Read "Before We Say Goodbye To 2012" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In consumer culture, where we are all guilty of looking for the next new thing, the emphasis is always on new releases, and what the next, best, super-improved product will be. It seems that even before this week's movie opens, we are being told about next week's blockbuster.
