Anti-Rubber Brain Factory & Sameer Gupta

Sean Moran: Sun Tiger

Read "Sun Tiger" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Trio piuttosto atipico questo messo in piedi da Sean Moran, chitarrista elettrico newyorchese d'adozione: accanto al suo strumento troviamo infatti la batteria di Vinnie Sperrazza e il violoncello di Hank Roberts, strumenti che danno vita a un suono costantemente nel guado tra rock e musica da camera.

La particolarità si palesa fin dalle prime ...

Da questi esiti si tiene lontano il lavoro più recente di The Four Bags, inequivocabilmente intitolato Waltz, che riesce a esplorare con originalità un genere dalla tradizione tanto pregnante. Peculiare, del quartetto newyorkese, è prima di tutto ...

Sean Moran Small Elephant Band: Tusk

Read "Tusk" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il giovane chitarrista newyorchese Sean Moran riunisce in questo bel lavoro un quintetto dalle sonorità preziose e dall'incedere aconflittuale nel cui agire un ruolo assolutamente centrale gioca la composizione (tutti di Moran i nove pezzi in scaletta), con la definizione di percorsi stilistico-espressivi lucidi e coesi che sembrano rivelare un attento ascolto delle frange più avanzate ...
