Ståhls trio: Källtorp Sessions, Volume One

Read "Källtorp Sessions, Volume One" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In a more perfect world, jazz would be found on jukeboxes. Better still, how about adventurist jazz on jukeboxes? Mattias Ståhl's trio brings this thought to mind. His Källtorp Sessions, Volume One is comprised of nine tracks averaging 3¾ minutes, perfect for those 45 rpm singles.

The Stähls Trio of Mattias Ståhl (vibraphone), Joe ...

Milder - Ljungkvist - Landæus - Augustson - Rundqvist: The Music Of Anders Garstedt

Read "The Music Of Anders Garstedt" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non era il debole sole del Nord ad animare la musica di Anders Garstedt ma un coinvolgimento nel modern mainstream anni cinquanta, sia statunitense che europeo. Parliamo al passato perchè il trombettista svedese è scomparso a soli trentun anni nel 2000. Era nato a Karlstad la città prospicente il lago Vänern e dopo aver studiato il ...

Johan Lindstrom: Music For Empty Halls

Read "Music For Empty Halls" reviewed by Luca Casarotti

Il modo migliore di parlare di questo Music for Empty Halls è descriverne passo passo l'articolata struttura compositiva, che più di tutto cattura l'attenzione (e l'ammirazione) dell'ascoltatore. Il disco si apre su un ostinato in 12/8 suonato dalla chitarra, a cui presto si aggiungono contrabbasso e sax baritono. La ritmica cresce di dinamica con l'ingresso dell'hammond ...

Leading-edge Norwegian pianist Håvard Wiik is a widely acclaimed artist via his work in the eminent Scandinavian free bop band, Atomic and collaborations with saxophonists Joe Lovano, Ken Vandermark and many other jazz VIPs.

Tra i tanti talenti pianistici che vengono dal nord dell'Europa, quello di Håvard Wiik è tra i più luminosi e imprevedibili. Ben conosciuto con gli Atomic, come pure nel raffinatissimo progetto Free Fall di Ken Vandermark, Wiik è leader di grande intelligenza, come dimostra in questo nuovo lavoro in trio con i collaudati (già costituiscono la ...

Read "Music For Empty Halls" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jari Haapalainen Trio: Fusion Machine

Read "Fusion Machine" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Short sharp shocks, describes the music of Fusion Machine. The twenty-eight minutes of sound is Jari Haapalainen's knuckle sandwich of a recording. Actually it's thirteen jabs, hooks, and uppercuts; let's call them the track list. The disc contains no composition longer than two minutes-fifty, the shortest, “Flykten Från Djursholm" (Escape From Djursholm), is just 1:34.
