Peter McEachern Trio: Bone Code

This turns ...

Leslie Pintchik: You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!

Read "You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

If they gave out awards for album titles, this one would surely be in the running for top honors. “You eat my food, you drink my wine, you steal my girl" is a harsh and odd phrase that rolls off the tongue like some sort of backwoods country accusation-turned-lament, but its origins are far more urban ...

Sam Bardfeld: The Great Enthusiasm

Read "The Great Enthusiasm" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Sam Bardfeld scrive acute note di copertina ricordando in breve la formazione culturale di un giovane nella New York degli anni settanta, dopo le dimissioni di Nixon. Una città depravata, decadente, eppure sfolgorante nella sua iperbolica creatività. La musica caraibica accanto alle prime follie di Zorn; la ruvidezza del CBGB a pochi passi dai recital di ...

Frank Carlberg Large Ensemble: Monk Dreams, Hallucinations And Nightmares

Read "Monk Dreams, Hallucinations And Nightmares" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il “pianeta" Monk è stato talmente esplorato negli ultimi decenni che è difficile attendersi qualcosa d'originalmente significativo. Con quest'album orchestrale --la dimensione meno usata nelle revisitazioni del songbook monkiano -il pianista e compositore Frank Carlberg c'è però riuscito: anche se ogni brano s'ispira a un tema di Thelonious, l'elaborazione è personale e non deve stupire se ...

Simon Nabatov, Max Johnson, Michael Sarin: Free Reservoir

Read "Free Reservoir" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Simon Nabatov e Michael Sarin si conoscono ormai da oltre un trentennio, da quando, in Canada, parteciparono entrambi al Banff International Workshop in Jazz & Creative Music. All'epoca Max Johnson, che di anni ne ha ventisette, neppure era nei pensieri dei suoi genitori. Eppure oggi i tre si trovano insieme in quest'ottimo album, uno dei migliori ...

Joe Fiedler: Like, Strange

Read "Like, Strange" reviewed by Troy Collins

Change can occasionally be necessary for artistic growth. For over a decade, trombonist Joe Fiedler has led a stripped-down bass and drums trio, as documented on Plays The Music of Albert Mangelsdorff (Clean Feed, 2005), The Crab (Clean Feed, 2007), Sacred Chrome Orb (Yellow Sound, 2011), and I'm In (Multiphonics, 2015). Seeking a greater range of ...

Erik Friedlander's Oscalypso al Carambolage di Bolzano

Read "Erik Friedlander's Oscalypso al Carambolage di Bolzano" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Erik Friedlander's Oscalypso Piccolo Teatro Carambolage Bolzano 06.02.2017 Eleganza, precisione, arrangiamenti che coniugano intricati contrappunti a trasparenti unisoni, attenzione ai contrasti dinamici e agli impasti timbrici. Senso dell'esplorazione e della sorpresa. Sembrerebbe la descrizione dell'approccio musicale cameristico tipico di quello che è stato collocato sotto la definizione di Cool Jazz. Quella ...
