Rather than taking the obvious route with up-tempo workouts or deviously complex compositions, Yang is content to carve out plenty of open space for her music to breathe. Her graceful ...

Read "Basilio Sulis - Direttore Artistico di Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

In tempi come quelli odierni, fatti di festival con cartelloni omologati e di proposte musicali più attente agli aspetti commerciali che ai contenuti artistici, le manifestazioni che nel corso degli anni sono riuscite a mantenere una forte integrità e coerenza rappresentano una rara e dunque pregevole eccezione.

Albert Ayler Quartet: Copenhagen Live 1964

Read "Copenhagen Live 1964" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's almost as if the phenomenon that was saxophonist Albert Ayler was just a dream. Nearly fifty years after his death, listeners (and musicians, for that matter) are still catching up to him, and realizing his gift. His life, like that of Charlie Parker, ended at age 34. But where Parker (an originator of bebop) developed ...
