Charles Lloyd: Un viaggio che parte da lontano

Read "Charles Lloyd: Un viaggio che parte da lontano" reviewed by Roberto Ottaviano

L'incontro con Charles Lloyd è stato per me il coronamento di un desiderio coltivato a lungo. Collezionare i suoi dischi, osservare la sua figura attraverso i reportage fotografici, leggerne le storie e cercare di ricostruire attraverso una serie di particolari legati alla sua musica, ai suoi gruppi, la filosofia di quest'uomo, mi ha aiutato a vivere ...

Walter Smith III: Jazz Explorer

Read "Walter Smith III: Jazz Explorer" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Walter Smith stands straight when he raises his tenor sax to his mouth to embark on a solo, or play enthralling, serpentine, contrapuntal lines in unison with band mates like Ambrose Akinmusire.
