Gavin Templeton: In Series

Read "In Series" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Tenerezza e vigore, delicatezza e fermezza sostanziano la natura di In Series.

MTKJ Quartet: Day of the Race

Read "Day of the Race" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Una piacevole sorpresa: è la prima impressione che desta il quartetto guidato dal sassofonista Jason Mears e dal trombettista Kris Tiner. Il lavoro d'insieme - questa è la loro seconda incisione - sembra dare i suoi frutti e la musica ne beneficia in termini di precisione esecutiva, oltre che per la riuscita integrazione di stilemi improvvisativi che appartengono di solito alle ...
