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 ...

Il Meglio Del 2017 secondo Angelo Leonardi

Read "Il Meglio Del 2017 secondo Angelo Leonardi" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

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.

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 ...

Tomasz Stańko New York Quartet: December Avenue

Read "December Avenue" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Sulla scia del precedente, intenso Wislawa, dedicato alla poetessa polacca Wislawa Szymborska, sempre realizzato insieme al New York Quartet, questo December Avenue sviluppa la medesima dimensione espressiva, intrisa di lirismo. Un quartetto che interpreta al meglio i percorsi di Tomasz Stanko, già delineati al tempo delle registrazioni con la formazione polacca dallo stesso organico strumentale che ...

David Virelles: Gnosis

Read "Gnosis" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dopo il breve e visionario excursus elettroacustico di Antenna (ECM, 2016), David Virelles prosegue nella sua coraggiosa riformulazione della musica cubana sviluppando la ricerca di Mbókò, il suo debutto ECM del 2014.
Se quell'album era sottotitolato Sacred Music for Piano, Two Basses, Drum Set and Biankoméko Abakuá qui il riferimento al sacro è dato ...
