Alessandro Bosetti: The Notebooks

Read "The Notebooks" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Listening to the work of Alessandro Bosetti reminds me of a friend I have who suffered a lengthy bout with sleeplessness. It wasn't so much the insomnia that tormented him but a pop song (specifically Engelbert Humperdinck's version of “Quando, Quando, Quando") that was stuck in his head. Playing on an endless loop, he feared psychosis. ...

Alessandro Bosetti: Stille Post (Radio Works: 2003-2011)

Read "Stille Post (Radio Works: 2003-2011)" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Do you agree with Alessandro Bosetti, that there is art everywhere? A buena vista is a painting waiting to happen, the music of the wind through a stand of conifers, and even the familiar subway stops as they come past are a sort of poetry. The conductor calls out, “Montrose, Irving Park, Addison, Belmont, California, Western, ...

01. ANBB--Mimikry (Commons-2010).
Interessantissimo a livello sonoro e nella gestione delle dinamiche e degli spazi. Questa edizione contiene una bonus track intitolata “Foligno," dedicato alla mia città adottiva dove è nato il progetto.

The Trophies: You Wait To Publish

Read "You Wait To Publish" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Alessandro Bosetti reshuffles the distinctions between speech and song with his repeating texts. His scripts of found words, nonsense passages, or snippets of conversations, when presented as a loop, take on new and disparate meanings. With his trio Trophies, the repetitive speech loops expand as drummer Tony Buck (The Necks) and guitarist Kenta Nagai (Laura Andel ...

The Necks: Open

Read "Open" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Listening to a recording by the Australian trio The Necks is akin to over- hearing a conversation between two giant sequoia trees. While humans might not perceive the growth and movement of the trees, mom and pop Sequoiadendron giganteum might comment, “Little Billy sure has sprouted up these past 400 years, he's outgrown all his school ...

Lol Coxhill & Michel Doneda: Sitting on Your Stairs

Read "Sitting on Your Stairs" reviewed by John Eyles

In July 2012, London-based saxophonist Lol Coxhill died, aged 79, after a prolonged period of illness in a hospital. A favorite with London audiences for decades, in the months following his death Coxhill was fondly celebrated and remembered by the city's extensive improvised music community. Now, Sitting on Your Stairs is the first album of Coxhill's ...

Jazz: A Blessed Obsession

Read "Jazz: A Blessed Obsession" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jazz listeners travel some strange and beautiful paths. It might have all begun with collectors trying to find a legendary Edison cylinder that New Orleans trumpeter Buddy Bolden--some believe to be the very first jazz musician--may (or may not) have recorded in 1904. Fast forward to modern times, a quick scan of eBay and the exorbitant ...

Alessandro Bosetti - Chris Abrahams: We Who Had Left

Read "We Who Had Left" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Si incontrano su un terreno innervato da straordinarie tensioni espressive Alessandro Bosetti e Chris Abrahams. Sperimentatore elettronico tra i più originali in circolazione il primo, pianista e improvvisatore dei mitici The Necks il secondo. Ironicamente nelle note di accompagnamento al progetto, evocano la pomposità del recital pianistico e del divismo vocale lirico, un mondo che sembra essere appena scomparso, polverizzato, quando appaiono ...

Before We Say Goodbye To 2012

Read "Before We Say Goodbye To 2012" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In consumer culture, where we are all guilty of looking for the next new thing, the emphasis is always on new releases, and what the next, best, super-improved product will be. It seems that even before this week's movie opens, we are being told about next week's blockbuster.

Before we turn our attention fully to ...
