Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

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

My intention here is to offer a detailed but inevitably incomplete chronology of poetry and jazz. The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music. My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and ...

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

Il chitarrista calabrese Giancarlo Mazzù e il pianista siciliano Luciano Troja formano ormai da molti anni una coppia artistica molto affiatata.

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, ...
