2016: The Year in Jazz

Read "2016: The Year in Jazz" reviewed by Ken Franckling

The year 2016 bubbled with events and initiatives to strengthen jazz's place in American and world culture, as well as a variety of venue openings, closings and cancellations. Jazz hit the silver screen in many ways throughout the year, and International Jazz Day continued to thrive--complete with a major all-star concert at the White House. Pop ...

Lucien Dubuis Trio: Lucien Dubuis Trio: Design Your Future / Future Rock

Read "Lucien Dubuis Trio: Design Your Future / Future Rock" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Fino a qualche anno fa, il centro culturale svizzero di Milano aveva una buona programmazione musicale. Era possibile ascoltare dal vivo, con una certa regolarità, musicisti elvetici affermati e/o emergenti. Tra questi c'era Lucien Dubuis, giovane ed interessante saxofonista - clarinettista. Oggi questa programmazione musicale è praticamente azzerata, e siamo dunque costretti a seguire il percorso musicale di Dubuis attraverso i ...

Taking stock, a year half over

Read "Taking stock, a year half over" reviewed by Mark Corroto

This month, at the halfway point in the year of music, we are taking stock, and there have been so many great discs released. Here is my list (in no particular order) of the best albums so far. I predict many of these will make final top ten 2013 lists. Sorry, I couldn't keep my list ...

Lucien Dubuis Trio: Future Rock

Read "Future Rock" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The entire debate that bids one to take sides regarding art being either made by conservatory trained artistes or original primitives is quite the red herring. Sure, punk rock favored emotion over skill, but nobody would argue against Television guitarist Tom Verlaine's talent or the folk music of guitarist Bill Frisell. If you can play and ...

The Lucien Dubuis Trio and Marc Ribot - Ultime Cosmos (2009)

The Lucien Dubuis Trio and Marc Ribot - Ultime Cosmos (2009)

Ultime Cosmos was not serious. At least, not serious in that We're Wearing Nice Suits, We're Going To Play Jazz kind of way. Heck, this wasn't even jazz, not in spirit anyway. A quick read of the instrumental lineup would definitely make a person think 'jazz'—contrabass clarinet, guitar, bass, drums—but the record had more of a ...

Matthias Winckelmann: Happy Birthday ENJA!

Read "Matthias Winckelmann: Happy Birthday ENJA!" reviewed by Bob Hatteau

ECM, ACT, Winter & Winter, FMP, MPS, ENJA... Germany sounds like a generous land for creative jazz record labels.

ENJA Records, the Münich-based jazz label, was founded in 1971 by Matthias Winckelmann and Horst Weber. For the last forty years ENJA has built an impressive catalog, with more than seven hundred releases that ...

Scope: Rotten Magic

Read "Rotten Magic" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Misurarsi con la velocità, con l'ossessiva attenzione al groove, alle sequenze che introducono altre sequenze sonore narrative in piani orizzontali e verticali. C'è molto da scrivere e da ragionare dopo aver ascoltato “Personal Punk," catartica riflessione su 40 anni di musica. Il suono scompare, mozzato, il tempo rallenta, la musica diventa un'astrazione, e il musicista l'alchimista del suono. Così ...

Grand Reportage Ensemble Deluxe and Lucien Dubuis: Live from the Surface of the Sun

Read "Live from the Surface of the Sun" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Grand Reportage Ensemble (nome altisonante) è un trio costituito dal sassofonista Jerome Correa che occasionalmente si trasforma in quartetto grazie all'invito di ospiti prestigiosi, cambiando in queste occasioni denominazione in Grand Reportage Ensemble Deluxe (nome ancor più altisonante). Ma la musica presentata in Live from the Surface of the Sun è tutt'altro che pomposa e stucchevole. Registrato durante ...

The Lucien Dubuis Trio with Marc Ribot - Ultime Cosmos (2010)

By Mark Saleski Sometimes, the music chooses me ... or at least falls into my lap at just the right time. Things are crazy. But in the middle of it all, I discover the Lucien Dubuis Trio and Marc Ribot. Yeah sure, you know that I will follow Marc Ribot anywhere. The man is fearless on the guitar, ...

Lucien Dubuis Trio & Marc Ribot: Ultime Cosmos

Read "Ultime Cosmos" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Difficile sottrarsi al pulsare asimmetrico ma contagioso con cui questo disco ci accoglie. Così in un gioco ritmico e sonico sempre acceso si staglia una musica dalla forte identità, che sa tenersi alla larga dalle sabbie mobili delle etichette, anche se le tracce del passato sono evidenti. Infatti tra le improvvisazioni contagiose si colgono momenti vagamente cubanos ("Bal Les ...
