Giovanni Guidi Salida
Parco della Musica
Roma
19.05.2018

Il nuovo progetto inedito in quartetto del pianista Giovanni Guidi, denominato 'Salida,' era atteso con molta curiosità, sia per il livello dei nomi coinvolti che per la inconsueta formazione strumentale con doppie tastiere. Per presentarlo al pubblico, ma anche per rodarlo e ...

Thursday night is always the second night of the biennial Gilmore Keyboard Festival. Thursday night is also the first night for jazz, the festival putatively a classical music rollout with jazz confections, albeit well-considered, strewn throughout this 22-day cultural jewel based ...

Never Alone: Reflections on the 2018 Winter Jazzfest

Read "Never Alone: Reflections on the 2018 Winter Jazzfest" reviewed by Tyran Grillo

Ornette Coleman once said that sound has no parents. But that doesn't mean we can't be its children. On that point, jazz has always been something of a parental force, connecting progenies of representation across geographic and cultural borders. Its relationship to struggle has, however, at times been overshadowed by debate. On the one hand, jazz ...

Il meglio del 2017 secondo Vincenzo Roggero

Read "Il meglio del 2017 secondo Vincenzo  Roggero" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Tempo di consuntivi e di classifiche. Piuttosto complicato, decisamente parziale ma comunque divertente estrarre dal cilindro del 2017 dodici titoli rappresentativi. Così tra conferme che profumano di classicità -Craig Taborn, Steve Coleman, Nicole Mitchell, Rob Mazurek -, debutti clamorosi -Jaimie Branch -, ritorni tanto attesi -Arto Lindsay -, connubi sorprendenti -Iggy Pop con il trio di ...

È stato un anno jazzistico particolarmente ricco e creativo. I grandi protagonisti che hanno superato--spesso di molto--il mezzo secolo ci hanno regalato nuove opere memorabili. Basterebbe ricordare i recenti album di Wadada Leo Smith, Charles Lloyd, Satoko Fujii, Steve Coleman, Tomasz Stanko, Enrico Pieranunzi, Bill Frisell, Gary Peacock, Roscoe Mitchell, Tim Berne, Tom Harrell, Miroslav Vitous, ...

David Virelles: Gnosis

Read "Gnosis" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Cuban-American pianist/composer David Virelles continues the exploration of Afro-Cuban musical traditions begun with his first recorded collaboration with vocalist/percussionist Román Díaz on Continuum (Pi Recordings, 2012), continuing through Mbókò (ECM, 2013) and Antenna (ECM, 2016). He uses “gnosis" to refer to ancient collective knowledge, and this music is about the intersection of cultures--contemporary improvisational language and ...
