Pete Malinverni: Heaven

Read "Heaven" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il titolo di questo disco allude al cielo non in senso atmosferico. Il pianista Pete Malinverni ha passato 18 anni a suonare alle funzioni della Devoe Street Baptist Church in Brooklyn e dopo essere stato colpito dalla morte della moglie e dal sospetto di una grave malattia, ha pensato di realizzare un album a contenuto spirituale. ...

Pete Malinverni: Heaven

Read "Heaven" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

New York City-based pianist Pete Malinverni is a spiritual man.

Roberta Piket: One For Marian: Celebrating Marian McPartland

Read "One For Marian: Celebrating Marian McPartland" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

A young, unrecorded artist is asked to share her talents, sitting in a chair that had been warmed by Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Brad Mehldau, Mary Lou Williams, Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea and Dizzy Gillespie to name just a few of the legends who graced Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz series. It says a great deal about ...
