Read "An Unruly Manifesto" reviewed by John Sharpe

His quintet's standout set at the 2019 Vision Festival was based around this program, no surprise given that this is such a formidable disc. Lewis retains the services of bassist Luke Stewart ...

James Brandon Lewis: An Unruly Manifesto

Read "An Unruly Manifesto" reviewed by Phillip Woolever

James Brandon Lewis has been climbing the current jazz pantheon for a good while now. This deserving project should elevate the 36-year old tenor saxophonist from Buffalo even higher in the ranks.

Irreversible Entanglements
Teatro Torresino
Padova Jazz Festival
Padova
5.11.2018

L'impatto sonoro, ritmico ed emotivo su cui si impernia la musica di Irreversible Entanglements è autentico: non mira a stupire o sedurre la platea con virtuosismi oppure con facili formule di presa diretta sul pubblico. È corrosivo, arroventato, ribollente, ...

Read "In Gardens 2017 - Avant Jazz Outdoors in New York City" reviewed by John Sharpe

While the NYC-based artist lead co-operative Arts For Art might be best known for putting on the annual Vision Festival, that's by no means the full extent of its activities. One regular event among the year's schedule is the In Gardens concert series. As the name suggests, this entails presenting music in public open spaces in ...

Poetry & Jazz: Heroes Are Gangleaders / Clark Coolidge-Thurston Moore-Anne Waldman

Read "Poetry & Jazz: Heroes Are Gangleaders / Clark Coolidge-Thurston Moore-Anne Waldman" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La relazione tra jazz e poesia ha avuto il suo apice negli anni cinquanta, quando gli scrittori beat legarono i loro testi all'estetica be-bop, s'è rinnovata nel decennio successivo e da allora non ha smesso di manifestarsi, anche se in forme sotterranee.
