Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente

Read "Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Duck Baker è un chitarrista abbastanza difficile da inquadrare; mentre la tecnica che usa è rigorosamente fingerstyle, la musica che compone e interpreta spazia lungo tutta la storia del jazz, dai vecchi standard al modale, dal blues al bebop, dallo swing al free. I suoi interessi si estendono inoltre a tutta la American Music, che interpreta ...

Louis Moholo-Moholo's Five Blokes: Uplift The People

Read "Uplift The People" reviewed by John Sharpe

At last an album which captures some of the intense excitement, wayward adventure and sheer joy of a group which has wowed audiences at festivals and clubs across Europe and North America. Uplift The People by South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo's prosaically-named Five Blokes was recorded live at London's Cafe Oto in April 2017 and represents ...

Tom Wheatley: Double Bass

Read "Double Bass" reviewed by John Eyles

With improvising double bassists of the calibre of Olie Brice, John Edwards, Dominic Lash, David Leahy, Peter Marsh, Marcio Mattos, Jordan Muscatello and Guillaume Viltard being regulars on the London improv scene, it is not an easy place for young newcomers to make an impression and gain a reputation. But every once in a while, a ...

John Butcher, John Edwards, Mark Sanders: Last Dream at the Morning

Read "Last Dream at the Morning" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Radicalismo improvvisativo duro e puro, per questi tre senatori del ramo, appartenenti alla seconda generazione di musicisti inglesi specializzati nella pratica specifica. Il sassofonismo ispido e acuminato, esplicitamente antigrazioso, di John Butcher (espresso su tenore e soprano, guarda caso) s'ispira palpabilmente a Evan Parker, pontefice massimo in materia (con cui fra l'altro John Edwards ha collaborato ...

Chicago/London Underground: A Night Walking Through Mirrors

Read "A Night Walking Through Mirrors" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Per festeggiare i vent'anni di attività il Chicago Underground Duo declina la sua ennesima versione e ci lascia un ulteriore testimonianza di potenza creativa, di visionarietà e di musica tout-court di altissimo livello.

Chicago / London Underground: A Night Walking Through Mirrors

Read "A Night Walking Through Mirrors" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

As an artist and a surveyor of a broader universe, Rob Mazurek focuses on the journey rather than on planting a flag in undiscovered territories. Whether on his multi-instrumental solo work Mother Ode (Corbett vs Dempsey, 2014) or in the large ensemble formation of his most recent Exploding Star Orchestra project, Galactic Parables: Volume 1 (Cuneiform, ...

Francois Carrier: Freedom is Space for the Spirit

Read "Freedom is Space for the Spirit" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Saxophonist Francois Carrier had quite a week in late May of 2014. It began when he and his long-time percussionist Michel Lambert played with bassist John Edwards and pianist Steve Beresford at the Vortex Jazz Club in London on May 25th and ended with the duo performing with acoustic bassist Rafal Mazur at the Alchemia Jazz ...

Francois Carrier: OUTgoing

Read "OUTgoing" reviewed by Budd Kopman

In the realm of Western music, the role of the performer has been rather circumscribed. In Classical music, the composer is king and the range of “allowed" expression rather limited.

For most of its history, jazz performers relied on tunes as the basis for their improvisations, and thus, the composer (or tunesmith) was still ...
