Christy Doran's Sound Fountain: Belle Epoque

Read "Belle Epoque" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Ancora tre anni e il chitarrista Christy Doran, nato in Irlanda ma residente in Svizzera da tantissimi anni, taglierà il traguardo dei settant'anni. Ma siamo sicuri che le candeline le spegnerà con il botto che verrà fuori da un accordo energico sparato dalla sua chitarra elettrica nell'amplificatore di turno. Un botto fantasmagorico, come le avventure musicali ...

Gebhard Ullmann Basement Research: Hat and Shoes

Read "Hat and Shoes" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Una partenza decisamente lanciata, per poi ricondurre il tutto lungo binari concentrati e anche cerebrali più tipici di Ullmann (che del resto non disdegna impennate più vociferanti e corrugate, come qui accade per esempio in “Don't Touch My Music"), dà la stura a questo nuovo album del polistrumentista tedesco, il cui livello riporta per l'ennesima volta ...

Gebhard Ullmann/Basement Research: Hat And Shoes

Read "Hat And Shoes" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Saxophonist Gebhard Ullmann might be the German equivalent of Chicago's Ken Vandermark. Both players are influential composers and both maintain multiple creative ensembles in Europe and the United States. Like Vandermark, Ullmann's catalog is vast. Hat And Shoes is his 50th release as a leader or co- leader, and this band Basement Research have put out ...

Double Trio De Clarinettes: Itineraire Bis

Read "Itineraire Bis" reviewed by Vic Albani

Benedetti da alcuni illuminati nomi che gestiscono cose importanti del jazz europeo (vedi Philippe Ochem, direttore del Jazz d'Or festival di Strasburgo, Armand Meignan, direttore del festival di Le Mans, Frank Baumann del Goethe Institut di Minsk, l'Istituto di cultura francese dello stesso centro e altri nomi dello stesso calibro) nascono di tanto in tanto progetti ...

Alon Nechushtan: Ritual Fire

Read "Ritual Fire" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Nato in Israele nel 1974 e dal 2003 negli USA, il pianista Alon Nechushtan vanta tra i propri mentori anche Paul Bley e Bob Brookmeyer, i quali evidentemente gli hanno trasmesso quelle tracce del magistero di Jimmy Giuffre che caratterizzano questo eccellente lavoro d'improvvisazione--idealmente ispirato alla creatività pittorica istantanea di Jackson Pollock--e che vengono a più ...

Prominent European purveyors of jazz clarinet fare--The Clarinet Trio and Le Trio De Clarinettes--align for a joint mission on this set that covers a wide spectrum of applications, ideas and surprises. They induce the sounds of nature and render highly melodic song forms while including doses of humor amid punchy motifs and hordes of delicate contrasts. ...

Timucin Sahin Quintet: Inherence

Read "Inherence" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La chitarra a doppio manico (uno dei quali fretless a sette corde) di Timucin Sahin (origini turche, studi in Olanda, residenza attuale newyorchese) è la protagonista assoluta di questa incisione. Non nel senso più prevedibile di primadonna egocentrica e vanitosa ma come prolungamento indispensabile e convincente delle idee compositive ed espressive del leader. Certo una front line formata da Ralph ...
