Read "Prometheus" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Quella allestita da Dejan Terzic -batterista tedesco di origine bosniache -per dar vita alle sue dieci composizioni, è una formazione di tutto rispetto.

Domenic Landolf: New Brighton

Read "New Brighton" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The term, “Impressionism" has been bandied about with such regularity in recent times that it has all but ceased to mean anything, much less suggest the kind of music that came from the pen of Claude Debussy and, a short time later, from that equally famous French composer, Maurice Ravel. Every once in awhile, however, there ...


The State of The Saxophone Trio: Dan Moretti, Domenic Landolf, Jacob Duncan

Read "The State of The Saxophone Trio: Dan Moretti, Domenic Landolf, Jacob Duncan" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

There is something Baroque about jazz ensembles lacking a piano or guitar as a harmony instrument . Their absence frees previously occupied sonic space for other uses. The format also sets up a more pronounced contrapuntal interplay between the remaining players. The saxophone trio has become quite mainstream since Sonny Rollins blew into the Village Vanguard ...

Thirteen musical episodes--simultaneously stressing individual paths, duo rapport and trio interplay--make up New Brighton. Multi-reedist Domenic Landolf shows that he knows how to go out on a limb, creating challenging music, but he always balances the adventurous with the accessible. Stability--whether dealing with rhythm or melody--is the key factor here. One musician will often provide a ...

Dejan Terzic Quartet (Naxos Jazz: Four for One

Read "Four for One" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Skins. Dejan Terzic’s Four for One is the second Naxos Jazz release lead by a drummer, the first being Niko Schäuble’s On the Other Hand (Naxos Jazz 86011-2). Unlike Schäuble’s very angular and elusive avant-guard music, Terzic’s effort is solid mainstream, almost a Hard Bop throw back. Standards and originals neatly split this eight piece offering. ...
