David Amram Quartet
The Falcon
87th Birthday Celebration
Marlboro, NY
December 3, 2017

Ever a celebration of our true angel hearts and creative selves, David Amram's irrepressible spirit (he did turn 87 on November 17th) and margin-mashing musical journey (Phil Och's “When I'm Gone" as a sweet jazz standard anyone?) ...

Blues Deluxe 2

Read "Blues Deluxe 2" reviewed by Doug Collette

The cultural fragmentation of recent decades or so has resulted in such a multiplicity of niche categories that the blues community only benefits by its long-term loyalty to the genre. Yet even the oftentimes arbitrary nature of the categorization(s) can't prevent the cross-pollination of styles. And, reasonably speaking, who wants to argue the dividing lines between ...


Francesco Bearzatti Tinissima 4tet: This Machine Kills Fascists

Read "This Machine Kills Fascists" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Tinissima 4tet, la formazione di Francesco Bearzatti che ha spopolato con i suoi primi progetti ispirati da Tina Modotti e Malcom X, torna alle origini “politiche" dopo il più ludico, anche se ben riuscito, Monk & Roll. Stavolta l'ispiratore è Woody Guthrie, grande cantore dell'America popolare, sulla cui chitarra era scritta la frase che dà il ...

Happy Birthday Woody Guthrie

Happy Birthday Woody Guthrie

Without Woody Guthrie, there would be no Pete Seeger and no Dylan, Donovan or Byrds.

There would be no “This Land is Your Land," “If I Had a Hammer," “Turn, Turn, Turn," and no Dust Bowl Ballads. The trajectory of American folk music would be forever thrown off its established vector. The poor, oppressed and otherwise ...
