Talking Cows: Almost Human

Read "Almost Human" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Dopo Bovinity e Dairy Tales, il quartetto olandese firma il suo terzo disco confermando la sua estetica di fondo: un'ispirato connubio tra stilemi di jazz moderno (con riferimenti anche pre-boppistici) e libera improvvisazione. Le foto in copertina con gli esseri umani dalla testa di bovino forse vogliono rappresentare questa convivenza di due aspetti molto diversi nella musica di questa formazione. Quale ...

Talking Cows: Dairy Tales

Read "Dairy Tales" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

When a jazz ensemble calls itself Talking Cows, the temptation to make comments about its moo-sic or its horn section is almost too great.

This Dutch quartet's second CD--the follow-up to Bovinity ...
