Cortex: Avant-Garde Party Music

Read "Avant-Garde Party Music" reviewed by Vic Albani

Fossero tutte così le party-band!

Cortex e Clean Feed colpiscono ancora e questo nuovo e ironico Avant-Garde Party Music la dice lunga sulle prospettive dello straordinario quartetto norvegese che dà alle stampe un nuovo capitolo della loro fortunata discografia. Se qualcuno cercasse una naturale evoluzione di un moderno hard-bop che attraversando gli insegnamenti di ...

Matt Piet & His Disorganization: Rummage Out

Read "Rummage Out" reviewed by John Sharpe

Perhaps it was pianist Matt Piet's appearances with esteemed reedman Dave Rempis on the co-operative Hit The Ground Running (Aerophonic, 2016) which first started to garner him attention, but he is certainly beginning to gain a reputation in his own right, a trend which can only be furthered by the release of Rummage Out. Piet set ...

Schnell: Live at Sowieso

Read "Live at Sowieso" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This international trio spares no effort with its plight to create hyper-mode bebop like gamma rays streaming through the universe at light speed. It's a rather amazing live set, that was probably meant to be performed in front of an audience and not in a cloistered studio setting. To say it's invigorating doesn't tell the whole ...

Lynn Cassiers: Imaginary Band

Read "Imaginary Band" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

La vocalist belga Lynn Cassiers, molto attiva sulla scena del jazz e dell'improvvisazione nel proprio Paese, guida questa Imaginary Band, settetto al suo debutto discografico con l'etichetta Clean Feed. L'organico strumentale offre un ampio spettro timbrico, con la presenza di violino, eufonio (flicorno basso), sax tenore e soprano, pianoforte, contrabbasso e batteria: cosa che potrebbe far ...

Luis André: Turbamulta

Read "Turbamulta" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

La musica di Turbamulta si dipana con gestualità lenta, con tratti sottili e delicati, a parziale smentita del termine portoghese che definisce il titolo del CD e il nome del gruppo: folla turbolenta. Già la strumentazione coinvolta offre un'idea delle sonorità e delle dinamiche messe in scena. Sono rari i contrasti forti, come quelli che aprono ...

Dystil: Dystil

Read "Dystil" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Three young and imaginative NY-based musicians execute this abstract mission with a sense of purpose. Via the press release on the Clean Feed website, “the trio Dystil propose their debut CD as an imaginary film, with the purpose to turn their dreams into realities." And while the CD clocks in at a scanty 29 ½ minutes, ...

Dave Ballou & BeepHonk: The Windup

Read "The Windup" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Highly regarded trumpeter Dave Ballou and his band recorded this outing live at the Baltimore venue The Windup Space, where bassist Adam Hopkins organized weekly concerts in 2011. With its debut, the quartet combines briefly stated structural components with hearty doses of improvisation, featuring embryonic guitar hero, Washington D.C. native Anthony Pirog (Janel & Anthony, The ...

Il disco, coperto da quattro ampie composizioni dello stesso Clark, è stato in effetti inciso a strettissimo ...

Max Johnson
In the West
Clean Feed Records

Un talento multiforme quello del bassista Max Johnson, in grado di spaziare dal rock al bluegrass, dal jazz d'avanguardia alla musica da camera. Tutte queste capacità mimetiche precipitano nel suo album In the West, disco che sembra contenere a fatica l'insieme ...
