Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Read "Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Read "A dialogo con Giancarlo Mazzù e Luciano Troja" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

The Rocco John Group: Devotion

Read "Devotion" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La devozione cui si fa riferimento nel titolo dell'album è quella che Rocco John Iacovone nutre nei confronti dei grandi maestri della storia del jazz (e della musica in generale). Qualcuno citato esplicitamente nei titoli dei brani (Dolphy, Bach, Parker). Altri rievocati per assonanza (Cy-cology, basata sugli accordi di “All of Me"). Altri ancora, più poeticamente, per associazione emotiva ...
