Piano Trios: 3x3

Read "Piano Trios: 3x3" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Immortal Onion
Ocelot of Salvation
Requiem Records
2017

This Polish trio seems out to confuse from the start. If you're pinning your metaphysical hopes on a jungle cat, your spiritual leanings probably lean toward ideas of oneness and harmony more than salvation from evil. Vegetables aren't exactly things we think of ...

Iluso Records: DIY from two dreamers

Read "Iluso Records: DIY from two dreamers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Australian drummer Michael Caratti and Spanish-born New York-based guitarist Álvaro Domene founded the record label Iluso in 2013 to release their quartet recording Gran Masa.

Read "Iglooghost Takes Brave Step Forward With Electronic EPs" reviewed by John Bricker

Read "Max Johnson: In the West; Borderlands Trio: Asteroidea" reviewed by Stefano Merighi



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 ...

Nouveau Fusion: Superette And Visitors

Read "Nouveau Fusion: Superette And Visitors" reviewed by Doug Collette

Bereft of forced funk and over-complicated compositions, jazz-rock fusion can be as liberating as the best rock and roll. That is, if the technical expertise brought to bear is restrained and sublimated to the unity of the ensemble and the musicians involved play with the unity of a true band. Then the emotional expression usually contained ...

Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente

Read "Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Duck Baker è un chitarrista abbastanza difficile da inquadrare; mentre la tecnica che usa è rigorosamente fingerstyle, la musica che compone e interpreta spazia lungo tutta la storia del jazz, dai vecchi standard al modale, dal blues al bebop, dallo swing al free. I suoi interessi si estendono inoltre a tutta la American Music, che interpreta ...
