The Wrong Object: After the Exhibition

Read "The Wrong Object: After the Exhibition" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Sometime during the late 1960s, adventurous European rock musicians led by the likes of Gong, Soft Machine, Magma, and Arzachel began incorporating elements of avant-garde jazz, contemporary classical and various ethnic musics into their own original progressive rock music. The result varied somewhat from region to region, but the most important thing was that very little ...

Read "Mercy, Pity, Peace & Love" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo eccellente trio guidato dal chitarrista belga Michel Delville ci aveva già colpito nel profondo dell'anima con l'album d'esordio Never Pet a Burning Dog, pubblicato da Moonjune Records nel 2009.

DouBt: Mercy Pity Peace & Love

Read "DouBt: Mercy Pity Peace & Love" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Quick, name a jazz-rock trio fronted by a dazzling virtuoso keyboardist and a prodigiously talented electric guitarist that plays in a hyper-aggressive no-holds-barred style which combines edgy free improv with a heavy '70s rock sound. If you answered “the original Tony Williams' Lifetime" you aren't alone. One current trio actively probing the outer reaches of jazz ...

Read "Never Pet a Burning Dog" reviewed by Mark Redlefsen

Guitarist Michel Deville, of the Belgian Wrong Object, and British keyboardist Alex Maguire team up to form a power trio with drummer Tony Bianco as doubt, on its debut, Never Pet a Burning Dog. Deville steps out with a louder, more direct tone, affectionately and more overtly exposing the influence of Terje Rypdal--even including one of ...

Doubt: Never Pet a Burning Dog

Read "Never Pet a Burning Dog" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La cosa più impressionante di questo trio è il volume di suono che riescono ottenere, scatenando una ordalia di vibrazioni che ci travolgono e ci spazzano via come un tornado tropicale. Forse i tre protagonisti hanno dimenticato di 'non svegliar il can che brucia' e hanno inevitabilmente innescato uno tsunami impressionante che ci ricorda la sensazione che ebbero oltre ...

Never Pet a Burning Dog largely pares things down to a ...
