Brooklyn Jazz Underground: Seven by Seven

Read "Seven by Seven" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Settetto molto compatto, solido, il Brooklyn Jazz Underground pratica un jazz non particolarmente avventuroso ma comunque ben congegnato e condotto, col ruolo-guida che passa dalla voce (persino iperpresente nella prima parte dell'album) alla tromba, al sax tenore. Ci sono delle ripetizioni e un asservimento al canto a volte persino eccessivo, quasi supino, tuttavia il lavoro prende ...

Anne Mette Iversen's Double Life: So Many Roads

Read "Anne Mette Iversen's Double Life: So Many Roads" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

In both worlds, highs and lows, triumphs and tragedies, harmony and melody, chaos and order, the clinical and the emotional, the simple and complex, and so much more are constantly being balanced on the scales. Rarely are things in perfect equilibrium, yet so many people strive to ...

Anne Mette Iversen Quartet: Milo Songs

Read "Milo Songs" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Alla base di Milo Songs ci sono un bambino, Milo per l'appunto, ed una semplice melodia che il bambino stesso canta ripetutamente, come fosse un mantra. Anne Mette Iversen, la mamma di Milo, pensa che sia possibile costruire attorno ad essa un intero album nel quale raccontare la bellezza del mondo visto con gli occhi dell'infanzia. Convoca ...
