Harold O'Neal: Piano Cinema

Read "Piano Cinema" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Harold O' Neal è un pianista singolare. Quest'album in solo ripropone lo stile ricercato, intriso di riferimenti all'impressionismo francese e alle radici del jazz, che aveva presentato nel 2011 in Marvelous Fantasy. Durante gli studi al Berklee College e alla Manhattan School Of Music, la sua storia musicale è segnata dal sodalizio con Bobby Watson (2001) ...

Read "Street Talk" reviewed by Chris May

Since coming together in 1999 to celebrate the late-period work of John Coltrane, the aptly named Saxophone Summit has lost only one original member.

Read "Nichols, Newk with Kenny/Elmo, Prez & More" reviewed by Marc Cohn

We're rotating through our 2019 centenarians--this week Herbie Nichols with tracks from his first Blue Note LP.

There's more Newk too, recordings ...

Edward Simon: Sorrows & Triumphs

Read "Sorrows & Triumphs" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La figura di Edward Simon ha punti di contatto con quella di Guillermo Klein. Entrambi sudamericani sono pianisti, compositori e bandleader residenti da decenni negli Stati Uniti (Simon s'è trasferito dal Venezuela a 12 anni per studiare alla Performing Arts School di Filadelfia) e realizzano personali sintesi tra jazz contemporaneo, folklore dell'America Latina e raffinate soluzioni ...
