Adam Nussbaum: The Lead Belly Project

Read "The Lead Belly Project" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The blues is simple music. What do they call it? Three chords and the truth? They say the same about country music and rock, but that's another article. But for much of American music, blues is the bedrock, be it rock, soul, funk, a good slice of country western, and, yes, jazz.

Read "Singular Curves" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Tre generazioni a confronto -Steve Swallow classe 1940, Adam Nussbaum 1955, Ohad Talmor 1970 -ma non si direbbe. I tre musicisti suonano come vecchi amici che si incontrano dopo lungo tempo e ritrovano immediatamente il linguaggio della sobrietà, dell'eleganza, della misura, non una frase di troppo, non una parola fuori posto, segni appena accennati, ammiccamenti che ...

“Part 5" for instance takes off with trombonists' Jacob Garchik and Ben Gerstein's baroque refrains ...

Some tend to focus in on a single sound, others key in on conversational concepts, and then there are those who are big picture ...
