La giovane sassofonista del New Hampshire, estremo nord-est statunitense, ha certo più di una freccia al suo arco. Ce lo dice con chiarezza questo suo ultimo lavoro, inciso all'inizio del 2013 alla testa del proprio quintetto, entro cui un ruolo quasi altrettanto rilevante della leader gioca il violista Etvind Kang, specificatamente per l'impasto (per certi versi ...

Jazz Is For The Birds: An Aviary In Song

Read "Jazz Is For The Birds: An Aviary In Song" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky
