Jason Roebke Octet: Cinema Spiral

Read "Cinema Spiral" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

La spirale del cinema a cui Jason Roebke si riferisce in questa seconda registrazione con il suo affiatato ottetto porta l'impronta di Alfred Hitchcock, con assonanze che rimandano a Vertigo, sia nel titolo che nel tema musicale che apre il CD e lo percorre tutto, ripresentandosi in altri brani e dando un carattere fortemente unitario al ...

Jason Roebke Octet: Cinema Spiral

Read "Cinema Spiral" reviewed by Troy Collins

The widely acclaimed collaborative nature of the contemporary Chicago jazz scene is expertly demonstrated on Cinema Spiral, the sophomore effort by double bassist Jason Roebke's all-star Octet, which continues the creative in-roads made on the unit's celebrated 2014 Delmark Records debut, High/Red/Center.

Starring eight of the Windy City's most intrepid improvisers, the ensemble features ...

Keefe Jackson, Jason Adasiewicz: Rows and Rows

Read "Rows and Rows" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Nella ricca cartografia musicale che alimenta la scena odierna di Chicago, quella successiva alla topica esperienza della AACM e ben descritta da James Falzone nelle note a questo CD, Keefe Jackson e Jason Adasiewicz rappresentano due personalità di rilievo, riscontrabili in molte realizzazioni e collaborazioni.

Il sassofonista e clarinettista si è trasferito nella città ...

Jason Roebke Octet: Cinema Spiral

Read "Cinema Spiral" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If entropy is a scientific theory that describes how all things in nature tend towards a gradual decline and disorder, then Jason Roebke's Octet is the anti-entropy. His second octet release Cinema Spiral and the previous High/Red/Center (Delmark, 2014) make order out of the impression of chaos.

Such is the enticement of jazz.

The Eternals: Espiritu Zombi

Read "Espiritu Zombi" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Adventurist listeners want more from their music. That's why they venture into jazz, world, and improvised music. If you were a fan of the Talking Heads in the 1970s and 80s, the band's expanded lineup of backing singers and percussionists, plus keyboardist Bernie Worrell and guitarist Adrian Belew propelled the band out of its new wave ...

Jason Roebke Octet: Cinema Spiral

Read "Cinema Spiral" reviewed by John Sharpe

Bassists leading mid-size bands inevitably bring to mind the trail-blazing precedent established by Charles Mingus. Others like Dave Holland, Barry Guy and Adam Lane followed. To that roster can be added bassist Jason Roebke, one of the stalwarts of the productive Chicago scene. Cinema Spiral constitutes the sophomore effort by his Octet, following on from High/Red/Center ...

Something old, something new, something reissued, something Brötzmann blew.

Read "Something old, something new, something reissued, something Brötzmann blew." reviewed by Mark Corroto

Can the entire history of a musical genre be encoded in one man's DNA? If that is possible, then reading the DeoxyriboNucleic Acid molecules in saxophonist Peter Brötzmann's body would yield all the information a musical scientist studying the development of free jazz would require. Since the 1960s, he has been in the center of the ...

Daniel Fortin: Brinks

Read "Brinks" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Toronto-based bassist Daniel Fortin is best known for his work in MYRIAD3, a dynamic, forward-looking piano trio whose work superficially resembles that of The Bad Plus and the Esbjörn Svensson Trio in that they're young guys in a piano trio who don't play jazz the way most piano trios play jazz. Fortin's solo debut, Brinks is ...

Playing It Forward: A Pair From Vibraphonist Anthony Smith

Read "Playing It Forward: A Pair From Vibraphonist Anthony Smith" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

There are two ways to look at the vibraphone: as an instrument with constructional properties that limit those who stand before it or as a portal to possibility that challenges players to rise above those limitations. Anybody with a pragmatic bone in their body understands and accepts the former as a truth of sorts, as yarn ...

20.11.2015

Fissiamo una data: gennaio 2007. Non che Rob Mazurek fino ad allora si fosse risparmiato in quanto a dischi e collaborazioni (soprattutto sul fronte Chicago Underground), ma è innegabile che il debutto su Thrill Jockey dell'Exploding Star Orchestra, We Are ...
