Val Wilmer: Dues And Testimony

Read "Val Wilmer: Dues And Testimony" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Free-jazz, which marked the first revolution in jazz since bebop, and, some might say, the most significant revolution in the entire history of the music, was controversial and divisive. Still today, over half a century later, free-jazz is sometimes dismissed out of hand as just so much noise, or worse, finds itself simply airbrushed from the ...

Noah Preminger: Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground

Read "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

A un anno scarso dal precedente Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar, il trentenne tenorsassofonista newyorchese Noah Preminger torna sul luogo del delitto. Che non è la sede dell'incisione (questo, anzi, è un album in studio, benché inciso in un jazz club, il Side Door, in Connecticut), quanto il repertorio, anche stavolta estratto dalla grande letteratura ...

Rollin' and Tumblin' Roberto Menabò 194 Pagine ISBN: 978-8862318228 Arcana 2014 Per quanto il blues sia un genere musicale da tempo largamente diffuso e storicizzato, i dati biografici dei suoi più grandi interpreti sono ancora ampiamente sconosciuti, dispersi nel terreno paludoso tra realtà e leggenda dove spesso le ...

Noah Preminger: Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground

Read "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground" reviewed by James Nadal

Corey Harris: Fulton Blues

Read "Fulton Blues" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Sono trascorsi due decenni dal debutto di Corey Harris in Between Midnight and Day, che fece gridare al miracolo catapultando il bluesman sulla scena internazionale. Quelle torride esecuzioni di Delta Blues suscitarono alti consensi e grandi attese (confermate dal successivo Fish Ain't Bitin'), portando il New York Times a paragoni -certo eccessivi-con Robert Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins ...
