Ashley Daneman: Beauty Indestructible

Read "Beauty Indestructible" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

È un disco che colpisce, questo di Ashley Daneman, e merita tutta la nostra attenzione.
Per certi aspetti ricorda quello di Becca Stevens di qualche anno fa: entrambe sono affascinanti e personali singer/songwriter che attualizzano la lezione di Joni Mitchell e Laura Nyro in percorsi eclettici, assegnando al jazz un ruolo significativo. Qualcosa che ...

David Bennett Thomas: Headspace

Read "Headspace" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist David Bennett Thomas is a bit of a Renaissance guy when it comes to music. A gifted composer of classical and choral, chamber and orchestral music, he also veers on occasion into the jazz world. He brings to jazz a cerebral approach that is also engaging on a purely kick-back-and-listen level. It is with repeated ...

Ben Britton's Unconventional Riot: Children At Play

Read "Children At Play" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The name of saxophonist Ben Britton's new outfit, Unconventional Riot, might suggest some hard-edged, in-your-face, Mostly Other People Do The Killing type of jazz.
