Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle

Read "Alberto Pinton: la nostra parte del puzzle" reviewed by Marco Colonna

Scrivere di Alberto Pinton è una delle occasioni ghiotte che speravo di avere collaborando occasionalmente con la divulgazione “giornalistica" del jazz.

Roscoe Mitchell: Numbers

Read "Numbers" reviewed by John Sharpe

What's the difference between composition and improvisation once the music has been committed to disc? At that point even the wildest flights of fancy become fixed and immutable, able to be reheated and pored over at leisure. One difference may lie in the notation-defying musical characteristics integral to the finest improvisations: continual variation of tone and ...

Timeless Pulse Quintet: Timeless Pulse Quintet

Read "Timeless Pulse Quintet" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Strettamente consigliato ai cultori dell'avanguardia e della libera improvvisazione, quello del Timeless Pulse Quintet è un progetto di ricerca verso inusitate esplorazioni sonore che si serve di strumenti percussivi tradizionali (George Marsh e Jennifer Wilsey), fisarmonica (Pauline Oliveros), apparecchiature elettroniche (David Wessel) e voce umana (Thomas Buckner). Il clima è cameristicamente astratto: dominano spazi aperti e rarefatte atmosfere entro una ...

Jérôme Bourdellon - Thomas Buckner: Totem

Read "Totem" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Certo bisognerebbe essere di fronte alle interessanti sculture bronzee rappresentate sulla copertina per apprezzare a pieno queste improvvisazioni ad esse dedicate. In ogni caso rimaniamo colpiti e meravigliati dalle evoluzioni vocali del baritono Thomas Buckner, da trent'anni sulla scena e con collaborazioni molto importanti, supportato ottimamente dal flautista francese. Invero la coesione tra i due musicisti è forte fino ...
