Richard Galliano: New Jazz Musette

Read "New Jazz Musette" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Certo spiace un po' vedere un musicista come Richard Galliano ripresentare, disco dopo disco, quella che è stata la propria luminosa e brillante carriera senza aggiungere a essa neppure una virgola di nuovo e originale.

Jean-Michel Pilc: What Is This Thing Called?

Read "What Is This Thing Called?" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jean-Michel Pilc's solo piano recording What Is This Thing Called? might have been titled “Thirty-one Conversations About One Thing." That 'one thing' being his 31 variations on Cole Porter's composition “What Is This Thing Called Love." Why record 31 versions of one song? Maybe ask yourself why Claude Monet created so many paintings of the same ...

Read "The Ten Shades of Blues" reviewed by David Miller

Widely known in jazz circles for his virtuosity on the bass, relatively little attention has been paid to Richard Bona's solo career. Pity, as his solo records are generally excellent. Bona's records have a style that can only be referred to as world music. Generally, that term is misused, but Bona truly takes his influences from ...
