Franz Koglmann / Steve Lacy: Flaps

Read "Flaps" reviewed by Mark Corroto

A bit of surface noise on the reissue of 1973's Flaps--originally issued by Franz Koglmann's Pipe Records--can be easily excused. This long out- of-print collectors vinyl has been made available by Black Monk Records, and we can now rejoice.

Steve Lacy went to Vienna and made this somewhat strange recording with the then relatively ...

Ed Neumeister: Suite Ellington

Read "Suite Ellington" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

A complete summary of trombonist Ed Neumeister's musical career would date back to his pre-school years. Initially a regular fixture on the San Francisco circuit, he later immersed himself in the New York jazz scene dividing almost thirty-five years between the Duke Ellington Orchestra and the Mel Lewis Big Band. His additional experiences with classical orchestras ...

Franz Koglmann, Mario Arcari, Attila Pasztor: g(ood)luck

Read "g(ood)luck" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Torna Franz Koglmann, di cui avevamo un po' perso le tracce, e rinverdisce umori e architetture del glorioso trio KoKoKo (Koglmann Koltermann Koch), sempre col suo flicorno (più di rado la tromba) a dialogare morbidamente con un'ancia e un arco grave. Oggi le geometrie appaiono se possibile ancor più oleate, l'ancia è doppia, e il lessico ...

Casa della Musica

La penultima tranche di una rassegna più che mai “spezzatino" partita il 25 ottobre con gli Oregon e che ha visto poi alternarsi sui vari palchi un doppio omaggio a Giorgio Gaslini, una solo performance di Roberto Bonati, direttore artistico del festival (giunto, sarà il caso di ...

Franz Koglmann: Join!

Read "Join!" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Austrian, Vienna-based composer Franz Koglmann always used music as a means to present his ideas, often provocative perspectives, on cultural phenomena at large. He alienated the American jazz community with A White Line (hatART, 1990), where he sketched an alternative history of jazz based on white innovative musicians. Later he reconstructed the compositional ideas of Johan ...

EAOrchestra: Likeidos

Read "Likeidos" reviewed by Dave Wayne

The worlds of avant-garde classical music and avant-garde jazz mingle seamlessly on Likeidos, by Italy's Electro Acoustic Orchestra. Also known as the EAOrchestra, the ensemble is co-led by trumpeter Mirio Cosottini and bassoonist Alessio Pisani, who also composed most of the music. The preponderance of double reeds--an oboist and four bassoonists--is highly unusual, especially for improvised ...

Testimoni del '68: Franz Koglmann

Read "Testimoni del '68: Franz Koglmann" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Riguardo ai movimenti del Sessantotto ho sentimenti contrastanti. Da un lato apprezzavo il desiderio di portare una ventata di libertà e di “rivoluzione" nella società borghese, ma dall'altro non riuscivo ad accettare la loro ammirazione per dittatori comunisti come Mao. Un'istanza importante era il desiderio di trasformare il tempo lavorativo in tempo libero e viceversa. Non male, no? Che in ...

Paul Bley / Franz Koglmann / Gary Peacock: Annette

Read "Annette" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

Those familiar with the music of Paul Bley, as well as Annette Peacock--after whom this album is named, and whose compositions are featured--will recall the nervy sense of creativity that flowed through their veins and music. In fact, the manner in which Peacock's work is described also fits Bley; both play music that is austere, exacting, ...

Ran Blake & Anthony Braxton: A Memory Of Vienna

Read "A Memory Of Vienna" reviewed by Troy Collins

On November 19, 1988, a few days before the Cool Noir music festival in Vienna, composer Franz Koglmann finished recording Orte Der Geometrie (Hatart) with his Pipetet a couple hours earlier than expected. A number of high profile artists and musicians were in attendance for the festival, so efforts were made to utilize the remaining pre-paid ...
