Trio S: Somewhere Glimmer

Read "Somewhere Glimmer" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Un piccolo ma delizioso disco, questo, del Trio S ovvero Doug Wieselman, Jane Scarpantoni e Kenny Wollesen, sodalizio di downtown New York che ogni tanto si incontra per produrre musiche di serena dolcezza, a metà strada tra un folk dei ricordi e una quieta improvvisazione.

Il trio ha messo a punto in particolare una ...

Gina Leishman: This New York Life

Read "Gina Leishman: This New York Life" reviewed by Michael Blake

On the late summer afternoon I visited composer Gina Leishman, we couldn't meet in her apartment because it was under repair. A pipe had burst so a friend was loaning her apartment to Gina for a few days; one of those little studio apartments that New Yorkers manage to transform into what seems like a sprawling ...

Trio S: Somewhere Glimmer

Henry Butler, Steven Bernstein and the Hot 9: Viper's Drag

Read "Viper's Drag" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Cosa unisce la dissacrante verve di Steven Bernstein -estroverso leader dei Sex Mob e animatore di vari progetti con la Tzadik di John Zorn-col virtuosistico pianismo di Henry Butler, fortemente intriso di blues?
Questa rilettura sul primo jazz di New Orleans è una delle risposte. La passione per la tradizione ha accomunato i due ...

DarkMatterHalo: Darkness Interrupted

Read "Darkness Interrupted" reviewed by Claudio Bonomi

Hardedge, all'anagrafe Velibor Pedevski, si definisce un sound designer. Non un sound designer qualsiasi. Hardedge è un architetto di suoni elettronici dotato di una sensibilità non comune. È capace di costruire scenari e affreschi apocalittici di una profondità siderale, e quasi mai disturbanti, che si reggono su autentiche colonne soniche.

Potremmo definirlo un ...

Wadada Leo Smith, fenomenologia di un maestro

Read "Wadada Leo Smith, fenomenologia di un maestro" reviewed by Luca Canini

Non tutti i maestri sono uguali. C'è chi sceglie di farsi da parte, riducendo al minimo gli sconfinamenti, gli azzardi, i contatti con situazioni potenzialmente rischiose. E c'è chi invece si ostina a cercare, a condividere; tenendo fede a quella che del jazz è la suprema vocazione: la fisiologica tendenza a includere, in un continuo sovrapporsi ...
