Eric Revis: Sing Me Some Cry

Read "Sing Me Some Cry" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

La vicenda artistica di Eric Revis è esemplare per la propria coerenza: ci ricorda ancora una volta il ruolo avuto da molti contrabbassisti nel jazz contemporaneo, che sulle direttrici di metodo e prassi tracciate da Charles Mingus sanno coniugare una forte e sensibile preparazione sullo strumento alla capacità di organizzare stimolanti formazioni e di comporre in ...

Eric Revis: Sing Me Some Cry

Read "Sing Me Some Cry" reviewed by John Sharpe

Away from his tenure with Branford Marsalis, bassist Eric Revis continues in the adventurous vein established by his previous dates on the Clean Feed imprint. His latest group if anything operates even more on the edge. With the return of reedman Ken Vandermark into the fold, Revis has a unit to die for. The Chicago-based hornman ...

Eric Revis: Sing Me Some Cry

Read "Sing Me Some Cry" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Only a bassist like Eric Revis with a background in the origins of jazz (that is, New Orleans), hardcore, funk, and post-bop can pull off such a big project as Sing Me Some Cry. Not big as in impenetrable, but circus tent big--assimilating all his experiences. From Betty Carter and Lionel Hampton to his long-standing tenure ...

Eric Revis: In Memory Of Things Yet Seen

Read "Eric Revis: In Memory Of Things Yet Seen" reviewed by Henning Bolte

Bassist Eric Revis is a heavyweight in more than one respect. He is doing the improbable in a remarkable way, thereby ignoring collectively imposed and maintained demarcations at work. Armed with his physically very present, raw and vibrant bass sound he beats his track into the realms of freely improvised music. He made his debut as ...

Ivo Neame: Yatra

Read "Yatra" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Qualcuno lo avrà già ascoltato come membro del London's Loop Collective e dunque musicalmente impegnato su più fronti, ma il giovane pianista Ivo Neame, già fattosi notare col trio Phronesis, sforna il suo lavoro più riuscito, Yatra, in cui alla guida di un ottetto, oltre che come solido musicista, si consacra anche e sopratutto quale compositore e arrangiatore di gran ...

Ivo Perelman Trio: Mind Games

Read "Mind Games" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Mind Games è l'ennesica incisione in trio del tenorista brasiliano Ivo Perelman. I suoi dischi in trio sono ogni volta diversi perchè Perelman sa integrare o sa ispirare, a seconda dei casi, le ritmiche con cui suona. Ci sono stati fior di musicisti ad accompagnarlo: William Parker e Rashied Ali (un indimenticabile Sad Life), Jackson Krall, Jay Rosen o, ...

Jorrit Dijkstra + John Hollenbeck: Sequence

Read "Sequence" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Cosa spinge due musicisti come Jorrit Dijkstra, esponente significativo della scena improvvisativa olandese e John Hollenbeck, versatile batterista e arguto compositore, a licenziare un disco squinternato come Sequence? Un disco cioè, nel quale sono banditi i concetti di ritmo, melodia, armonia (ma questo potrebbe essere altamente stimolante) in favore di una esplorazione sonora che lascia perlomeno perplessi... Un disco ...

Ethan Winogrand: Made In Brooklyn

Read "Made In Brooklyn" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You have to love drummer-led recordings. Is it because the producer mixes the leader a bit louder, or maybe you just concentrate more on the beat? Maybe both. Sessions led by Billy Higgins, Roy Haynes, Tony Williams, or today’s stars like Jim Black, Matt Wilson and Joey Baron cause you to focus on subtleties and the ...

Ivo Perelman: The Seven Energies Of The Universe

Read "The Seven Energies Of The Universe" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Hard blowing tenor saxophonist, Ivo Perelman sets The Seven Energies Of The Universe to music on this newly released production. Art critic Eleanor Heartney describes in the liners, “For Perelman, the experience of painting is very similar to the experience of making music”. Furthermore, Ms. Heartney approximates the abstract expressionism art movement with Perelman’s style of ...
