Ståhls Trio: Källtorp Sessions Volume One

Read "Källtorp Sessions Volume One" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

I trii con un vibrafono al posto di pianoforte o chitarra non sono mai stati tutta questa gran consuetudine, nel jazz. Per il semplice motivo che non sono mai stati troppo consueti i vibrafonisti, spesso, oltre tutto, impiegati come voce, come timbro, in organici più ampi.

Il quarantottenne svedese Mattias Ståhl, accompagnandosi a ...

Rob Laufer: The Floating World

Read "The Floating World" reviewed by Doug Collette

Rob Laufer's first album in nine years, The Floating World, will no doubt compel repeated listenings after the first one, if only so the curious music lover can better distinguish how much he or she might have missed on that initial hearing.

Bill Frisell | Thomas Morgan: Epistrophy

Read "Epistrophy" reviewed by John Kelman

When ECM Records released Small Town in 2017, beyond capturing the profound intimacy and musical ability to “finish each other's sentences" shared by the first recorded document of guitarist Bill Frisell and bassist Thomas Morgan in a duo setting, one of the biggest walk-aways was the hope that this would not be a one-off.

Il programma si apre con un brano di John Lennon e prosegue ...
