Sue Rynhart: Signals

Read "Signals" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Following her impressive debut, Crossings (Songs for Voice and Double Bass) (Self Produced, 2015), Dubliner Sue Rynhart returns with more finely crafted, beguiling songs. Once more, bassist Dan Bodwell lends hefty doses of jazz-inflection, his infectious ostinatos and roaming improvisations shadowing and shading the contours of Rynhart's artfully through-composed pieces. There are more timbral textures on ...

Read "I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Moss Freed" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

01. Lionel Loueke--Heritage (EMI--2012).
Sono diventato dipendente da questo album dopo aver visto il trio (con Mark Guiliana e Michael Olatuja) al Vortex di Londra l'anno scorso. Vi è un quantità smisurata di sentimento nel modo di suonare di Loueke mentre la scrittura è moderna con memorabili sequenze melodiche e groove danzabili. Gli assolo di ...

In questo Grigio, per ...
