Radka Toneff: Fairytales

Read "Fairytales" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Norway's best-selling jazz album ever is also a recording laced with tragedy. Only weeks after its 1982 release, singer Radka Toneff was found dead in the Bygdøy woods, near Oslo. She was aged thirty. The verdict was suicide caused by an overdose of sleeping pills.

Toneff was born in 1952 and by her ...

Carl Michel: Music in Motian

Read "Music in Motian" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Late drummer, texturalist, bandleader, and composer Paul Motian holds a revered space in the post-bop of the last half century. From early stints with Lennie Tristano and Coleman Hawkins to his seared-into-legend work with Bill Evans on Sunday at the Village Vanguard (Riverside Records, 1961), and Waltz for Debby (Riverside Records, 1962)); through his fiery live ...

Musiche che hanno coperto un'ampia gamma di linguaggi ed orizzonti espressivi, pubblico numeroso e plaudente ... Il bilancio musicale di questa XXI Edizione del Dolomiti Ski Jazz non può che essere molto positivo. Meno felice il bilancio meteorologico. Il maltempo ha infatti cercato di ...

Pablo Held Trio: Investigations

Read "Investigations" reviewed by Roger Farbey

The complex title perfectly characterises Pablo Held's compositional approach. Here he utilises light and shade to mix swathes of tranquillity with petulant stabbing phrases accompanied by equally sharp drum retorts. However, and this is crucial, the piece flows together seamlessly.

The lissome nature of “Dr Freeds" betrays an influence of Bill Evans but the ...

Culture Clubs: Part IV: When Jazz Met Europe

The Geography of Jazz--When Jazz Met Europe In 2004 Maureen Anderson, a researcher at Illinois State University contributed a dissertation to the journal, African American Review, titled The White Reception of Jazz in America.

Kjetil Jerve / Tim Thornton / Anders Thorén: Circumstances

Read "Circumstances" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Astonishingly, this international trio--Kjetil Jerve from Norway, Tim Thornton from the UK and Anders Thorén from Sweden--had played only one concert together before they recorded the studio tracks from which the contents of this album were gleaned. That recording session lasted two hours but here has been whittled down to just under an hour's worth of ...

Recorded on November 14, 1998 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, this was Keith Jarrett's ...

Black Flower
Moriska Paviljongen
Malmo, Sweden
February 16, 2018

Black Flower opened their concert at Moriska Paviljongen with a trance-like song redolent of early Pink Floyd, but soon enough the bpm picked up and seismic bass notes started resonating. We've all heard of EDM, but is IPM (instrumental ...

Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: After the Fall

Read "After the Fall" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Sembra ormai definitivamente tramontata la speranza di rivedere in concerto il trio Standards di Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock e Jack DeJohnette, che in trent'anni di attività ha riportato il moderno trio pianistico ai vertici dell'espressione jazzistica, ponendosi come punto di riferimento obbligato per tutti coloro che hanno adottato la stessa formula strumentale negli ultimi tre decenni. ...
