Assif Tsahar: In Between the Tumbling a Stillness

Read "In Between the Tumbling a Stillness" reviewed by Mark Corroto

As the saying goes, In Between The Tumbling A Stillness, recorded in 2015 in Tel Aviv, “comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb." Saxophonist Assif Tsahar, who sticks to tenor throughout, opens “In Between" like a lion, if that lion were Albert Ayler. The 35-minute piece draws from the fire music of ...

Digital Primitives: Lipsomuch & Soul Searchin'

Read "Lipsomuch & Soul Searchin'" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Nella loro storia i Digital Primitives non hanno inciso molti dischi: questo doppio che raccoglie Lipsomuch & Soul Searchin' (tra l'altro contenente registrazioni del 2011) è solo il terzo della serie, ma in tutta onestà non ci sentiamo di dire che la scelta -sempre che di scelta si tratti -sia in qualche modo scriteriata, non solo ...

Assif Tsahar, Gerry Hemingway, Marc Dresser: Code Re(A)d

Read "Code Re(A)d" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Ogni tanto fa piacere imbattersi in lavori che mostrino di raccogliere con la dovuta coerenza filologica (che non vuol dire riciclo mani e piedi) la lezione del free jazz storico. È quanto accade in questo bell'album, che riunisce una volta di più una coppia ritmica (chiamiamola così, per comodità) in sella ormai da una trentina d'anni ...

Digital Primitives: Lipsomuch & Soul Searchin'

Read "Lipsomuch & Soul Searchin'" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

This is only Digital Primitives' third recording, released four years after Hum Crackle & Pop (Hopscotch), but the trio sounds as if its three members have been playing together for ages.
