Jazz & Poetry

Read "Jazz & Poetry" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

The best of jazz is aural poetry. The best of poetry swings and grooves. So it's not surprising that jazz and poetry have had a long and fruitful synergy.

We decided to explore intriguing collaborations between jazz musicians and poets, from the icons of the Beat Generation to Amiri Baraka, from Federico Garcia ...

ECM e le voci: Theo Bleckmann e Sinikka Langeland

Read "ECM e le voci: Theo Bleckmann e Sinikka Langeland" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Con gli anni, le voci hanno acquistato un carattere sempre più rilevante nel catalogo ECM rispetto ai tempi della sua fondazione, quando l'etichetta bavarese era rivolta alla pubblicazione di musica di carattere prevalentemente jazzistico e quasi esclusivamente strumentale. I primi nomi di cantanti a trovar spazio nel catalogo dell'etichetta sono stati quelli di Norma Winstone, Aina ...

Michel Benita Ethics: River Silver

Read "Michel Benita Ethics: River Silver" reviewed by John Kelman

It's no secret that music is something that can dissolve borders, transcend cultures, and speak with a language understood by all. That the decreasing size of the world has made it possible for artists from disparate countries to collaborate and create music that is truly greater than the sum of its parts--imbued not just with the ...

Parma Jazz Frontiere 2015

Read "Parma Jazz Frontiere 2015" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Casa della Musica
27-29.11.2015

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 ...

Manu Katche: Touchstone for Manu

Read "Manu Katche: Touchstone for Manu" reviewed by John Kelman

With only four records released as a leader on ECM, it may seem a little early to release a “best of" disc for drummer Manu Katché. But having since moved on to fellow German label ACT for Live in Concert, while Touchstone for Manu is only being released in North America in the summer of 2015, ...

Susanne Abbuehl: The Gift

Read "Susanne Abbuehl: The Gift" reviewed by John Kelman

There was a time when artists were expected to release a record every year--sometimes a very good thing, as there was so much development going on that there was plenty to document; other times a less-than-ideal situation, as some artists simply didn't have that much music in them, so releasing albums too frequently often worked against--rather ...

Dutch Jazz & World Meeting 2012: October 5-6, 2012

Read "Dutch Jazz & World Meeting 2012: October 5-6, 2012" reviewed by John Kelman

Dutch Jazz & World Meeting
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
October 5-6, 2012
With Jazzahead! 2012--the annual European jazz trade fair--demonstrating that jazz is, if not exactly big business, then certainly bigish business, it's no surprise to find that The Netherlands' biannual Dutch Jazz & World Meeting is making the same salient point, albeit more narrowly ...

Wolfert Brederode Quartet: Post Scriptum

Read "Post Scriptum" reviewed by John Kelman

At a time when the world is becoming an increasingly busy and, in some cases, hostile place, it's easy to forget the power of music, to create a space away from the demands and stresses of day-to-day life, where it's possible to just sit back, absorb, and become absorbed in something transcendent. Music doesn't always have ...

Jazzahead 2011: April 28 - May 1, 2011

Read "Jazzahead 2011: April 28 - May 1, 2011" reviewed by John Kelman

Jazzahead
Bremen, Germany
April 28-May 1, 2010

Jazz may be a marginalized genre with shrinking CD sales and, at least in North America, a painfully low profile in popular media, but just a few days at Jazzahead in Bremen, Germany, leave a much different impression. A trade show for all ...
