Steve Lacy: Free For a Minute (1965/72)

Read "Free For a Minute (1965/72)" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Li ripropone oggi la Emanem, in un doppio CD completato da alcuni interessanti inediti.

Pubblicati originariamente in Italia (Lacy si era stabilito ...

Kent Carter Rivière Ensemble: Oratorios and Songs

Read "Oratorios and Songs" reviewed by John Eyles

La discografia completa di Gianni Lenoci

Read "La discografia completa di Gianni Lenoci" reviewed by Donatello Tateo

Gianni Lenoci (Monopoli, 6/6/1963), pianista, compositore, didatta, performer multimediale ed artista visuale, è personalità artistica inquieta e sperimentatrice, come evidenziato dalla ormai pluridecennale corrispondenza empatica con alcuni compagni di avventure (in particolare Steve Potts, Kent Carter, Gianni Mimmo), e dal suo progetto Hocus Pocus, gruppo a geometria variabile dal trio fino alla dimensione orchestrale.

Gianni Lenoci, Kent Carter, Bill Elgart: Plaything

Read "Plaything" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Ancor più di altre incisioni più o meno recenti, Plaything conferma la dimensione “internazionale" della musica di Gianni Lenoci. Non solo perché il pianista barese, per quanto solitamente appartato e schivo, non esposto quanto si vorrebbe nel circuito concertistico, si relaziona e dialoga abitualmente con improvvisatori stranieri d'indiscussa levatura, ma soprattutto per la grana qualitativa e ...

Gianni Lenoci / Kent Carter / Bill Elgart: Plaything

Read "Plaything" reviewed by John Sharpe

Italian pianist Gianni Lenoci forms one apex of a trio with almost unlimited collective nous on Plaything. There are main two reasons for that: Kent Carter on bass and Bill Elgart on drums, both veterans of the 1964 October Revolution in Jazz, who have since carved niches for themselves in Europe. Carter 's early exposure arrived ...

Itaru Oki: Chorui Zukan

Read "Chorui Zukan" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Japanese trumpeter Itaru Oki is one of the forefathers of the free jazz scene in Japan; he was a member of the seminal, experimental Japanese trio ESSG, with pianist Satoh Masahiko, and drummer Togashi Masahiko, an improviser who was a role model for many Japanese musicians. Among them was pianist Satoko Fujii, and trumpeter Natsuki Tamura, ...

Emanem

2010

Summer Works 2009 is, very possibly, one of the finest testaments to spontaneously composed contemporary music since saxophonist Steve Lacy fired his first broadsides in Europe almost four decades ago. The music flies in the face of logic--how can two,three or four ...
