All Ellington: All Ellington

Read "All Ellington" reviewed by Mark Corroto

When Eric Boeren assembles a cast of musicians to play the music of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn you know it won't be your father's Ellington. Well, unless your father is very, very hip. You probably already expect this, knowing Boeren has been a mainstay of the new Dutch swing for decades. With his All Ellington ...

Mike Reed's Flesh & Bone Live at BIMHUIS Amsterdam

Read "Mike Reed's Flesh & Bone Live at BIMHUIS Amsterdam" reviewed by BIMHUIS

Mike Reed's compositions for Flesh & Bone are both deeply personal and brimming with hope. They represent his expressions of feeling about social unrest, racism and resurgent nationalism. On his eponymous album, the Chicago-based musician recollects harrowing memories of a confrontation with far-right protesters on a train journey with his band through Eastern Europe. For this ...

Twenty One 4Tet: Live At Zaal 100

Read "Live At Zaal 100" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I'm assuming that the Twenty One 4Tet recording Live At Zaal was conceived as a one-off deal, with Portuguese trumpeter Luís Vicente visiting Amsterdam-based players John Dikeman, Wilbert De Joode and Onno Govaert. This concert, from September 2015, finds Vicente combining his impressive craftsmanship with three like-minded players. Then again, it might be just ...

Eric Boeren: Song for Tracy the Turtle

Read "Song for Tracy the Turtle" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Ornette Coleman è sempre stata la fonte di ispirazione dichiarata per Eric Boeren e per la sua cornetta. In particolar modo lo è l'Ornette degli inizi o, per meglio dire, del periodo reso immortale dai dischi pubblicati dall'Atlantic. Anche questo album, ricavato dalla registrazione radiofonica di un concerto che si era tenuto a Bruges alla fine ...

Eric Boeren 4tet: Song For Tracy The Turtle

Read "Song For Tracy The Turtle" reviewed by Mark Corroto

When Eric Boeren's 4tet isn't playing the music of Ornette Coleman, they are playing the music of Ornette Coleman. That is to say, with a Dutch swing. The leader and cornetist began playing covers in the early 1990s, releasing several quartet recordings of Coleman's music with Cross Breeding (BVHaast, 1997), Joy Of A Toy ...

Bik Bent Braam: Extremen

Read "Extremen" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questi olandesi non finiscono mai di stupire. A capo della sua orchestra Bik Bent Braam, zeppa di nomi di peso, Michiel Braam, pianista, compositore, arrangiatore (tutti i brani sono suoi) conduce una performance strepitosa, registrata in concerto nel febbraio 2008 al Bimhuis di Amsterdam. Il disco è autoprodotto, pur usufruendo di un contributo del Ministero olandese ...

Play Station 6: #1

Read "#1" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Tumultuosa: non saprei come altro definire la musica contenuta in questa terza uscita del catalogo Evil Rabbit. Musica che impegna e non concede nulla, brevi interludi minimali alternati a estenuanti divagazioni timbriche, stridenti derive rumoristiche opposte a concitati assalti frontali, svolazzi paranoici e inquietanti delicatamente sostenuti da trame evanescenti e dal sapore cameristico. Il tutto senza ...
