Nuova Camerata: Chant

Read "Chant" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Free improvisation and contemporary music share many aspects, and the goal is the same--to avoid the beaten path of established musical idioms. Of course, sometimes they can both become actual styles, somewhat conforming to predictable strategies, but the most successful instances are those that keep the ambiguity intact, presenting the ideal of “new music" in its ...

Read "Rui Neves e la scena jazzistica portoghese" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Nel 2013 su All About Jazz Italia comparve una serie organica di interviste da parte di Enrico Bettinello a protagonisti del jazz italiano (produttori, agenti, direttori artistici...) con l'obiettivo di analizzare i meccanismi e i criteri che caratterizzano la programmazione dei festival jazz nel nostro Paese. A quella meritoria ed esauriente iniziativa si può ricollegare idealmente ...

Sudo Quartet: Live at Banlieue Bleue

Read "Live at Banlieue Bleue" reviewed by John Sharpe

Such is the strength and conviction with which the Sudo Quartet performs that thoughts immediately turn to how they developed such a cohesive group sound. With no liners and no information on the web, the genesis of the unit remains a mystery, though the same foursome feature on four tracks on bassist Joelle Leandre's At the ...

Sudo Quartet: Live at Banlieue Bleue

Read "Live at Banlieue Bleue" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The master improvisers on this live set convey a relaxed, yet thoroughly experimental dynamic amid dips, spikes, intricate sub-group dialogues and some mimicking along a course that may suggest an oscillating loop, countered by splintering soundscapes. Hence, the organic nature of the all-acoustic format offers additional insights and subtleties as the musicians scurry across non-linear frameworks, ...

Sudo Quartet: Live at Banlieue Bleue

Read "Live at Banlieue Bleue" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The pan-European Sudo Quartet is comprised of four true heroes of free improvisation: French double bassist Joëlle Léandre; Portugese violinist Carlos Zingaro; Italian trombonist Sebi Tramontana; and German drummer Paul Lovens. All have played together in various formats for more than two decades, playing contemporary music, free jazz and spontaneous, on-the-spot improvisations, expanding the spectrum of ...

Daunik Lazro: Some Other Zongs

Read "Some Other Zongs" reviewed by Mark Corroto

To designate saxophonist Daunik Lazro the French Joe McPhee--or, perhaps, the French equivalent to Evan Parker--is to illustrate not only the proficiency he has with his instrument, but his formidable improvisational skills. For his second solo release, Some Other Zongs, he sticks solely to the finicky and often blunt baritone saxophone--an instrument which, in the hands ...

Carlos Zingaro: Spectrum

Read "Spectrum" reviewed by Stuart Broomer

A group made up entirely of strings might initially suggest chamber music, but this all-European trio produces music that crosses many boundaries, not so much to create music that's eclectic but to define its own terrain. Portuguese violinist Carlos Zingaro is a well-known exponent of free improvisation while the bassist Wilbert De Joode has served as ...

Carlos Zingaro

Read "Carlos Zingaro" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

01. Ornette Coleman - Sound Grammar (Phrase Text - 2006). Sempre Ornette... Il suono chiaro, quasi liquido del suo sax. Il fraseggio memorabile. Variazioni e sequenze apparentemente caotiche. La prima volta rimasi disorientato dall’ascolto del suo violino, ma anche affascinato dalla sua articolazione tanto che comprai il mio primo violino elettrico. E poi nei primi anni ...
