Of Stories, Songs, and Self: Fred Hersch's Good Things Happen Slowly & Open Book

Read "Of Stories, Songs, and Self: Fred Hersch's Good Things Happen Slowly & Open Book" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Most everything in Fred Hersch's oeuvre has always miraculously existed as slow read and page-turner all at once. The many phrases, songs, and albums spun from the mind and fingers of this highly expressive pianist-composer have been something to really take time with, to be savored and appreciated for their beauty and depth of creative thought. ...

Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet

Read "Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Si aggiungono due nuovi lavori al sostanzioso catalogo Ramboy, l'etichetta autogestita dal sassofonista e clarinettista Michael Moore, fondata nel 1991, che documenta l'attività ampia e multiforme del musicista. La conoscenza di Moore è forse maggiormente legata alla sua presenza nel Clusone Trio, formazione nata nel 1988 con Ernst Reijseger al violoncello e Han Bennink alla batteria ...

01. Kenny Barron -Book of Intuition (Impulse -2016).
Adoro questo disco e questo trio che ho avuto la fortuna di sentire diverse volte dal vivo. Barron è uno dei miei pianisti preferiti sin da quando da giovane lo ascoltavo nei lavori di Stan Getz, nel suo disco Live at Bradley's e in duo con Charlie ...

01. Jaki Byard --The Last from Lennie's (Prestige--2003).
Ho ascoltato spesso Jaki Byard durante l'ultimo anno. Ora sto indirizzando la mia attenzione su questo disco con Joe Farrell. La versione di “After You've Gone," suonata in trio è sorprendente. Subito dopo l'esposizione della melodia piano, basso e batteria eseguono dei soli. Lo stride di Jaki ...

We have here two recent solo recordings, one in the studio and one live in Lithuania, and a live duo album with the late, great Jaki Byard from 1985. Of course, ...
