Brian McCarthy Nonet: The Better Angels of Our Nature

Read "The Better Angels of Our Nature" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Brian McCarthy's The Better Angels of Our Nature shares some common ground with Ted Nash whose Big Band collection Presidential Suite (Eight Variations on Freedom) (Motema Music, 2016) explored musical interpretations of great historical speeches including those of John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and Lyndon B. Johnson. McCarthy's focus is inspirited by American ...

Chris Rogers: Voyage Home

Read "Voyage Home" reviewed by Niccolò Lucarelli

Il jazz non è soltanto un genere musicale: per qualcuno è anche un luogo affettivo, dove ritrovare le proprie radici, vecchie conoscenze, episodi della propria vita, atmosfere familiari. Accade anche per Chris Rogers in Voyage Home, il cui titolo, che può essere tradotto con “rotta verso casa," lascia intendere come l'autore abbia voluto percorrere un viaggio ...

Neil Rolnick: Ex Machina

Read "Ex Machina" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Alla soglia dei settant'anni (li compirà il prossimo 22 ottobre), il compositore texano Neil Rolnick dà alle stampe questo importante lavoro, che dispone lungo oltre cento minuti cinque sue ampie pagine (dai nove minuti alla mezz'ora) partorite fra il 2013 e il 2015.

DYAD: Dyad Plays Jazz Arias

Read "Dyad Plays Jazz Arias" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Classical-jazz hybrids, such as the Modern Jazz Quartet, traditionally keep the formal structure of classical music foremost in their work. Not so the duo of Lou Caimano and Eric Olsen collectively known as Dyad. Their version of “Jazz Meets The Classics" is a loose, freewheeling beast that occasionally breaks off from the classical side and follows ...

Jazz for President - Le suite di Delfeayo Marsalis e Ted Nash

Read "Jazz for President - Le suite di Delfeayo Marsalis e Ted Nash" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Gli anni sessanta sono lontani e con essi la controversia su jazz e politica. Com'è noto, la musica è un'arte asemantica e i musicisti non possono trasmettere significati (in questo caso politici) con il linguaggio delle note.

Read "Presidential Suite (Eight Variations on Freedom)" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

As we live through the most contentious and divisive political cycle in US history, the Ted Nash Big Band Presidential Suite: Eight Variations On Freedom couldn't be more relevant. The significance hits home quickly and pointedly as former Connecticut State Senator Joe Lieberman follows the opening “Overture" with words of JFK that say, in part: ..."civility ...
