Christy Doran's Sound Fountain: For The Kick Of It

Read "For The Kick Of It" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Released shortly before turning seventy, Christy Doran's third outing with Sound Fountain finds the Irish-born, Lucerne-based guitarist playing as well as at any time during his fifty-year career. It marks a blistering return for Doran to electric trio terrain, following the experimentation of 144 Strings for a Broken Chord (Between the Lines, 2018)—compositions for twenty electric ...

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.
