Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz Sant'Anna Arresi 1-9.9.2018

Mettendo insieme una buona dose di ironia e di amara verità, il direttore artistico del festival Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz, Basilio Sulis, ama definire Sant'Anna Arresi come Periferia dell'Impero. Da trentatré anni, tuttavia, nella prima settimana di settembre questo lembo di Sardegna ...

Jazz Festival SaalfeldenJazzfestival Saalfelden 2018
Saalfelden, Austria
Casa del Jazz
23-26.08.2018

Il Jazzfestival di Saalfelden garantisce di solito un combinato efficace di musica avventurosa, inedita, ed esibizioni invece legate a nomi “sicuri," sempre di gran qualità. Quest'anno la formula si è rivelata meno felice del solito, pur contando su un ...

Louis-Michel Marion: 5 Strophes

Read "5 Strophes" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

French double bassist Louis-Michel Marion's sophomore solo double bass album (after his debut solo double bass album Grounds, Emil, 2012) blends influences from European schools of free improvisation and experimental, modern composers. Marion--who collaborates regularly with forward-thinking French improvisers like sax player Daunik Lazro, clarinetist Xavier Charles or pianist Sophie Agnel--describes himself as influenced by seminal, ...

Daunik Lazro and Henri Roger with Benjamin Duboc and Didier Lasserre

Read "Daunik Lazro and Henri Roger with Benjamin Duboc and Didier Lasserre" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Their inventive and telepathic interplay can stir emotional storms produced with minimal, almost evasive elements and color any collaboration with vivid, spell-binding moods. Their latest improvised collaborations with baritone saxophonist Daunik Lazro and pianist Henri Roger demonstrate Duboc ...

Daunik Lazro / Joelle Leandre: Hasparren

Read "Hasparren" reviewed by Glenn Astarita



This outing signifies the fifth recording and sole duo pairing by these consummate improvisers, spanning several decades. Recorded at a cultural center in Hasparren, France, the musicians explore the lower register with a profusion of prismatic contrasts as they interrogate and expand upon numerous schematics that at times, seem uncannily composed or sketched out ...
