Read "Vijay Iyer: Mutations" reviewed by John Kelman

There are times when it's possible to chart an artist's success through his association with record labels. Vijay Iyer--who, over the past 20 years, has built a reputation for genre-defying, forward-reaching music--spent the early part of his career on independent US labels including the highly regarded Pi Recordings, Savoy Jazz and Sunnyside Records. But it was ...

Don Byron New Gospel Quintet: Love, Peace, and Soul

Read "Love, Peace, and Soul" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

È tornato Don Byron: camaleontico, indefinibile, capace come sempre di regalare nuovi significati alla parola “contaminazione," che mai come nel suo caso deve essere instanziata e spiegata. È possibile che da ingredienti più o meno eterogenei come jazz, soul, leider tedeschi, musica classica, klezmer, rock, folk, ragtime, e funk si possa perseguire un percorso artistico-intellettuale in ...

Bill Frisell: Sign of Life

Read "Sign of Life" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nato nel 2001 per dar forma sonora ad un ciclo di quadri astratti dell'artista tedesco Gerhard Richter, 858 Quartet ha trovato successivamente una propria ragion d'essere ed una propria autonomia diventando un quartetto “tutto corde" grazie all'avvicendamento tra la tromba di Ron Miles e il violino di Jenny Scheinman.
