Tiziano Tononi & The Ornettians: Forms and Sounds - Air Sculptures

Read "Forms and Sounds - Air Sculptures" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Tiziano Tononi non è nuovo ai lavori dedicati all'esplorazione di grandi innovatori del jazz, e già nel decennio scorso una formazione con lo stesso nome di questa, Tiziano Tononi & The Ornettians, ma ben diversa nei componenti aveva firmato due album dedicati a Ornette Coleman, musicista che-come riconosce esplicitamente nelle note di questo CD—ha influenzato non ...

Franco Ambrosetti: The Nearness Of You

Read "The Nearness Of You" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il pregio di quest'album risiede nella ricercatezza dei suoi percorsi melodici, esaltati dal lirico flicorno di Franco Ambrosetti e dalle raffinate orchestrazioni di Massimo Nunzi e Gianni Ferrio. Il riferimento implicito è l'opera di Miles Davis con Gil Evans ma la cosa non sminuisce il fascino del lavoro che avvolge l'ascoltatore con la fragranza dei timbri ...

Bill Frisell | Thomas Morgan: Epistrophy

Read "Epistrophy" reviewed by John Kelman

When ECM Records released Small Town in 2017, beyond capturing the profound intimacy and musical ability to “finish each other's sentences" shared by the first recorded document of guitarist Bill Frisell and bassist Thomas Morgan in a duo setting, one of the biggest walk-aways was the hope that this would not be a one-off. Two years ...

Thelonious Monk Revisited

Read "Thelonious Monk Revisited" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Thelonious Monk once said “play what you want and let the public pick up on what you are doing even if it does take them 15, 20 years."

Dr. Mark Lomax, II: 400: An Afrikan Epic

Read "400: An Afrikan Epic" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The origins of the continent's name are not clear, but in the language of most of its inhabitants, the spelling is Afrika. The colonizers from Portugal, Britain and France adulterated the spelling for uniformity to their own phonics beginning in the fifteenth century, as they launched the cultural marginalizing of tens of millions. Dr. Mark Lomax ...
