Alexander Hawkins

Read "Alexander Hawkins" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

Il tratto principale della mia musica
È molto difficile rispondere ma spero che, in qualche modo, il tratto principale della mia musica corrisponda al tratto principale di me stesso.

La qualità che desidero nei musicisti che suonano con me
Gioia, apertura, generosità, e che non abbiano paure nel fare musica.

Matthew Shipp: Let's Do Lunch!

Read "Matthew Shipp: Let's Do Lunch!" reviewed by Yuko Otomo

When Matthew Shipp asked me to design the cover art for his Points album (Silkheart Records, 1992), I showed him works from the on-going drawing study I was engaged in. He picked one graphite drawing and said, “Wow! This is exactly what's happening inside my mind when I play the piano!"

Here, we talk ...

An Evil Clown and a Leap of Faith

Read "An Evil Clown and a Leap of Faith" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

"I don't have a half-speed for music, if I do it, I'm all in..."--PEK

If the Evil Clown record label is prolific on a per capita basis, then its founder is exponentially more inexhaustible. David Peck (aka PEK) founded the label--at first, unbranded--and its roots date back a little more than twenty years ...

Ron Stabinsky: Free for One

Read "Free for One" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Nome decisamente poco familiare dalle nostre parti quello del pianista di Philadelphia Ron Stabinsky.
Componente da un po' di tempo degli irriverenti Mostly Other People Do the Killing (con i quali lo abbiamo ascoltato dal vivo a Saalfelden nel 2015, una prestazione davvero pazzesca), il musicista ha al suo attivo anche collaborazioni con Peter ...

Three New Releases from Peter Kuhn

Read "Three New Releases from Peter Kuhn" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Clarinetist Peter Kuhn came up in the 1970s. In those days, one could count the number of modern jazz clarinet specialists on one hand: John Carter, Perry Robinson, Theo Jorgensmann, Alvin Batiste and--if you include the bass clarinet--Michel Pilz. So, one hand and a finger. Still associated with Benny Goodman, Dixieland and Swing, the clarinet was ...
