TD Ottawa Jazz Festival
Ottawa, Canada
June 23-26, 2017

Amongst the most significant challenges that face any festival is, as the gray and no-hair crowd continues to age, finding ways to cultivate and grow a younger audience. But when you're a Canadian festival, another major challenge is a simple fiscal fact: most ...

Dhafer Youssef: Diwan Of Beauty And Odd

Read "Diwan Of Beauty And Odd" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Si rimane letteralmente a bocca aperta ascoltando “Fly Shadow Fly," traccia di apertura di questo lavoro del tunisino Dhafer Youssef, qui accompagnato da un gruppo di stelle emergenti: a lungo la sua voce si intreccia al mirabile piano di Aaron Parks, prima descrivendo--in arabo -volute su una tonalità bassa e avvolgente, poi salendo di tono fino ...

Phronesis / Julian Argüelles / Frankfurt Radio Big Band: The Behemoth

Read "The Behemoth" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Long regarded as the European piano trio filling a void left by the Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Phronesis has been continually evolving since their debut Organic Warfare (Loop Records, 2007). Their philosophy has been consistent across the past ten years--regarding the root “Americanisms" of jazz as anachronistic rather than required methodology, Phronesis has freed itself to absorb ...

Donny McCaslin: Bowie Deepened The Relationships In My Band

Read "Donny McCaslin: Bowie Deepened The Relationships In My Band" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

Wherever the boundaries were in music, in most cases, they have perished and are no more. Jazz has always been a music of exploration and taking chances and as a result, has benefited from the dialogues with other music, be it folk, rock, classical or electronic. Saxophonist and composer Donny McCaslin certainly doesn't believe in boundaries. ...

Il meglio del 2016 secondo Angelo Leonardi

Read "Il meglio del 2016 secondo Angelo Leonardi" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La discografia jazzistica del 2016 evidenzia l'inarrestabile creatività di veterani come Henry Threadgill o Leo Smith e di giovani protagonisti come JD Allen o Darcy James Argue.

Personalmente sono stato colpito dalla prova significativa di un artista ancora in ascesa come Ryan Keberle e da quella maiuscola di un compositore e leader ancora ...

01. James Brown with Oliver Nelson Conducting Louie Bellson Orchestra--Soul on Top -(King Records-1970).
James Brown si mette in gioco ancora una volta. Soul on Top è un lavoro incredibile dove Mr. Brown cambia gli abiti per diventare il crooner di una jazz big band composta da musicisti straordinari. Pathos, energia e raffinatezza, un disco ...

Il grande pubblico l'ha conosciuto soprattutto nelle vesti di musicista accanto al David Bowie degli ultimi tempi, e in modo particolare nello straordinario mondo musicale di Black Star, l'album di commiato del genio musicale britannico scomparso proprio quest'anno.
