Il meglio del 2017 secondo Libero Farne

Read "Il meglio del 2017 secondo Libero Farne" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Per quanto mi riguarda le novità più sorprendenti le ho ascoltate a Bolzano (Warped Dreamer e il trio In Love With con i fratelli Ceccaldi) e a Saalfelden (Eve Risser e Roberto Negro). L'Europa si conferma quindi una fucina di idee originali e di notevole spessore. E l'America? Più dei nomi emergenti (James Brandon Lewis, Joshua ...

Uri Caine Trio: Siren

Read "Siren" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Pianist Uri Caine holds a unique distinction, known the world over as a stellar jazz pianist, but a critics' darling for his genre-blind reworkings of classical music.

British reed player Tim Garland once described saxophonist Joe Lovano as someone who “looks forward and backwards simultaneously, covering the whole tradition, yet looking ...

Uri Caine Trio: Blue Wail

Read "Blue Wail" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Coincidence, Part II. Blue Wail was sent my way specifically by the publisher for my attention. Way over on the other side of my mind is the Ken Schaphorst Big Band recording Purple on Naxos Jazz, a disc chosen as an AAJ pick of the week in February. Who plays piano on both discs? Uri Caine. ...
