Nate Smith: Kinfolk: Postcards from Everywhere

Read "Kinfolk: Postcards from Everywhere" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

In aggiunta alla brillante carriera nei gruppi di Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Jose James e molti altri, il quarantaduenne batterista debutta da leader presentando un jazz fresco e immediatamente gradevole ma allo stesso tempo fantasioso negli impasti timbrici e nei ritmi.

Thomas Maintz, Aaron Parks: Duets in June

Read "Duets in June" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

L'ascolto di quest'album porta alla memoria la collaborazione tra Bill Evans e Jim Hall che produsse nel 1962 il magistrale Undercurrent e quattro anni dopo Intermodulation.
Da allora è trascorso mezzo secolo, Thomas Maintz e Aaron Parks hanno distinte personalità ed escludendo la formula strumentale, non ci sono somiglianze stilistiche, né di repertorio: gli ...
