Fabian Almazan: Alcanza

Read "Alcanza" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Giunto al quarto disco da leader, Fabian Almazan s'impone con un'opera ambiziosa e appassionante, che ha ricevuto superlativi giudizi dai massimi jazz magazine statunitensi. Alcanza è una suite in nove movimenti con tre brevi interludi incisa dallo stesso organico del precedente album Rhizome (Artist Share, 2014): ovvero il piano trio con la bassista Linda Oh} e ...

Mark Guiliana: Jersey

Read "Jersey" reviewed by Geno Thackara

The middle of the 2010s saw him drumming in sessions with Dave Douglas or Avishai Cohen (among others) to briefly subbing with ...

Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet: Jersey

Read "Jersey" reviewed by Vic Albani

Ho conosciuto Mark Guiliana una decina di anni fa in un ristorante di Parigi al tempo di una delle sue prime tante collaborazioni con Dhafer Youssef e (in quel caso) con Tigran Hamasyan. A parte l'ininfluente curiosità ovviamente “italiana" di quello strano cognome che sembrava frutto di un classico errore di trascrizione dell'ufficio anagrafe di Floram ...

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 ...
