Sokratis Sinopoulos: Eight Winds

Read "Eight Winds" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Ecco un lavoro davvero molto particolare, che prende ispirazione dalla musica tradizionale per realizzare impasti di impianto jazzistico, traendoli per giunta da una regione--la Grecia--la cui tradizione, splendida, è stata piuttosto sottovalutata in questo contesto.

Charles Lloyd / Maria Farantouri: Athens Concert

Two decades later, his stable quartet of young Americans rivals the stellar group responsible for Atlantic megahits including 1966's ...
