Read "Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2018: The Community Series at Koncertkirken" reviewed by Henning Bolte

Koncertkirken
Copenhagen Jazz Festival
Copenhagen
July 13-14, 2018

It was a flying visit of two days at this year's Copenhagen Jazz Festival with its 1500 concerts during 10 days. But with so many concerts spread over the city even two days demands serious decision-making and crisscrossing town. I was primarily ...

Lucas Niggli: Alchemia Garden

Read "Alchemia Garden" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

He draws inspiration from his gardening hobby, classical composers and fellow countryman, drumming great Pierre Favre. As a leader and collaborator, Niggli's longstanding affiliation and extensive discography with this pioneering Swiss label features a cavalcade of ...

Read "Barry Guy: Ploughs into Swordshares (Part 1)" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

Edgar Varèse's defiant statement in the face of public and critical indifference -"The present day composer refuses to die"--could so easily apply to composer-bassist Barry Guy. He has earned over the years a deep and lasting respect from certain fans and critics, though more so in ...

Per voce e dirimpettaio

Read "Per voce e dirimpettaio" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un tempo i duetti con protagonista la voce che esulassero dal classico contesto del canto accompagnato dal pianoforte erano merce piuttosto rara. Oggi molto meno. Tre album usciti grosso modo simultaneamente vengono prontamente a confermarcelo.
Il contesto è generalmente sperimentale, e questi tre lavori non fanno eccezione.

Lucas Niggli - Andreas Schaerer: Arcanum

Read "Arcanum" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Whether leading his Drum Quartet, seven-piece Zoom ensemble or supporting fabled improvisers, bassist Barry Guy and guitarist Fred Frith, Swiss drummer Lucas Niggli is not one to play it safe or dodge risk-taking processes. His mantra is firmly implanted in a musical world that is assuredly outside the box, after appearing on nearly two-dozen albums for ...

Elliott Sharp: Momentum Anomaly

Read "Momentum Anomaly" reviewed by Vic Albani

Elliott Sharp. Uno dei nomi su cui, davvero, ci si sarebbe da scrivere parole su parole. Amato e odiato. Compreso e incompreso. In breve, un fiume inarrestabile di musica; una discografia monumentale. Torrenziale come i miliardi di note che diffonde nell'universo musicale d'avanguardia da metà degli anni Settanta. Decine e decine di progetti: ordine e disordine, ...

Luciano Biondini - Michel Godard - Lucas Niggli: Mavì

Read "Mavì" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Giunto al secondo CD (il precedente What Is There What Is Not era del 2011, sempre per Intakt), l'atipico, europeo e originale trio di Luciano Biondini, Michel Godard e Lucas Niggli mostra di avere un'intesa invidiabile, messa alla prova su un repertorio decisamente variato e interessante.

Mavì--titolo che rimanda al colore del mare--è ...
