Ivano Fossati: Decadancing

Read "Decadancing" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

E' indubbio - e quasi inevitabile - che quest'ultimo lavoro di Ivano Fossati venga soppesato sulla scorta dell'annuncio che l'ha accompagnato: sarà l'ultimo, e pure il tour che parte a novembre è destinato a non avere un seguito, visto che all'indomani il cantautore ligure si ritirerà dalla professione, continuando a far musica per suo conto, ma ...


Van Morrison: Astral Weeks Live At The Hollywood Bowl

Read "Astral Weeks Live At The Hollywood Bowl" reviewed by Mike Perciaccante

Forty years after the release of his seminal work, Astral Weeks (Warner Brothers, 1968), Van Morrison decided that the time was right to play the entire album live. To recreate the record acknowledged by many critics as one of the best of all time, Morrison enlisted guitarist Jay Berliner (who played on the original album), many ...

Jack Kerouac with Al Cohn and Zoot Sims: Blues And Haikus

Read "Blues And Haikus" reviewed by Sid Smith

I discovered jazz and Jack Kerouac at roughly the same time in my teens back in the early 1970s, when his seminal novel On The Road (Viking, 1957) hooked me into the bohemian world of jazz clubs, intense friendships and the never ending highway under wide open skies described in its pages. It barely ...


Paolo Fresu Quintet: The Platinum Collection

Read "The Platinum Collection" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questi tre dischi della serie Emi Platinum Collection, celebrano il quintetto di Paolo Fresu, in una raccolta che prende dall'ampia discografia della formazione, privilegiando i cinque album Blue Note degli ultimi anni: Kosmopolites, P.A.R.T.E., Incantamento, Thinking e Rosso, verde, giallo e blu. Qualche brano proviene dal recentissimo Sette Ottavi mentre la storia passata rivive con isolati ...


Viktor Krauss: II

Read "II" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Thanks to his dexterity and vision on multiple stringed instruments, Krauss is kind of a musical everyman who has recorded and performed with Bill Frisell and Lyle Lovett (both of whom appear on II) plus Chet Atkins, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and The Chieftains. His solo debut, Far From Enough (Nonesuch, 2004), made it up to ...


Marisa Monte: Universo Ao Meu Redor / Infinito Particular

Read "Universo Ao Meu Redor / Infinito Particular" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Chissà cos’è passato per la mente di Marisa Monte quando ha deciso di far uscire contemporaneamente due album, tenendoli però ben distinti. Anche se evidentemente sono come le due facce della stessa medaglia. Forse ha pensato ai ragazzi delle favelas che possono diluirne meglio l’acquisto. O forse semplicemente all’esigenza di tenere separate le sue due anime: ...


Dr. John: N'Awlinz Dis Dat or D'udda

Read "N'Awlinz Dis Dat or D'udda" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

Dr. John is oh, so hip--or at least he tries to be. His latest “voodoo" album, N'Awlinz Dis Dat or D'udda, a tribute to the drummers of New Orleans, features linear notes expounding on the various “bippin'" “mo" and “dere it t-i-is" talent of well-known players offering their takes on things “down yonder." It's ...


Mongo Santamaria: Montreux Heat!

Read "Montreux Heat!" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Even if not quite essential, this new release is drawn from the same 1980 Montreux Jazz Festival performance from which Santamaria’s live recording Summertime was previously released (Pablo, 1981) – including all three encores – and so helps to complete a more well-rounded portrait of the legendary Afro-Cuban conguero/bonguero as the 1970s transitioned to the ‘80s. ...


El Gran Silencio: Super Riddim Internacional Volume 1

Read "Super Riddim Internacional Volume 1" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

It almost never fails: think to yourself just once, however quiet and solitary your thought, that by now you must have heard every type of music and instrumentation, and life is sure to drop on ya something that you’ve never heard before. El Gran Silencio has is that latest something new. El Gran Silencio ...
