Giancarlo Schiaffini, Errico De Fabritiis, Luca Tilli: Kammermusik

Read "Kammermusik" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Cinquantuno minuti di musica suddivisi in tredici tracce, nove delle quali improvvisate, due di Misha Mengelberg, una di Herbie Nichols—cioè di due icone della musica di ricerca—e l'ultima, a mo' di omaggio iconoclasta, nientemeno che ”O' Sole Mio”: questo il menù apparecchiato da Giancarlo Schiaffini in trio con due musicisti non facilmente etichettabili come il sassofonista ...

West Coast Piano: Dave Brubeck, Hampton Hawes, Nat King Cole (1944 - 1959)

Read "West Coast Piano: Dave Brubeck, Hampton Hawes, Nat King Cole (1944 - 1959)" reviewed by Russell Perry

In the last hour, we heard from Thelonious Monk, Elmo Hope and Herbie Nichols--three closely associated New York pianists in the 1950s. In this hour, we'll return to the West Coast and another trio of pianists representing some of the widely divergent strains of jazz in the 1950s. Nat “King" Cole was famous first as a ...

Monk and Friends: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Nichols, & Elmo Hope in the 1950s (1953 - 1957)

Read "Monk and Friends: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Nichols, & Elmo Hope in the 1950s (1953 - 1957)" reviewed by Russell Perry

The 1950s were a very productive decade for Thelonious Monk, perhaps his most productive as a composer. During the fifties his reputation and impact grew tremendously. His influence on other pianists can be seen in the work of Elmo Hope and Herbie Nichols, among others. Although neither had the longevity or enjoyed the popularity that Monk ...

Vicenza Jazz 2019

Vicenza, varie sedi
9-19.05.2019

“Oltre le colonne d'Ercole, alla ricerca di una nuova luna": questo era il sottotitolo della ventiquattresima edizione di Vicenza Jazz, a significare viaggi per mare alla ricerca di continenti perduti o porti di salvezza, viaggi nello spazio alla conquista di pianeti lontani... o semplicemente viaggi nel frastagliato ...

Nichols, Newk with Kenny/Elmo, Prez & More

Read "Nichols, Newk with Kenny/Elmo, Prez & More" reviewed by Marc Cohn

We're rotating through our 2019 centenarians--this week Herbie Nichols with tracks from his first Blue Note LP. Our artist log tells me it's time for another deep dive into the vault, including another piano faceoff (because you loved the last one): this time Fats Waller versus Teddy Wilson & Art Tatum. There's more Newk too, recordings ...

Free Association - Vol.1 with Magda Brand

Read "Free Association - Vol.1 with Magda Brand" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Free Association is a new series of collaborative mixtapes curated by Mondo Jazz in association with some of the finest selectors on Mixcloud.

Free Association mixtapes develop as a conversation. The first selector sends a tune cherry-picked to suit, and ideally surprise, the second selector who then, in turn, returns the favor. An ...

Live From Berlin: Alexander Von Schlippenbach, Henrik Walsdorff & Ida Nielsen

Read "Live From Berlin: Alexander Von Schlippenbach, Henrik Walsdorff & Ida Nielsen" reviewed by Martin Longley

The Schlippenbach-Walsdorff Quartet
A-Trane
October 31, 2018

The A-Trane is one of Berlin's best-known jazz clubs, but is surprisingly small, once discovered on its quiet street-corner. This might be a disadvantage when they're booking some of the big-name acts that appear there, resulting in lost sales from potential bookings, but ...

Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente

Read "Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Duck Baker è un chitarrista abbastanza difficile da inquadrare; mentre la tecnica che usa è rigorosamente fingerstyle, la musica che compone e interpreta spazia lungo tutta la storia del jazz, dai vecchi standard al modale, dal blues al bebop, dallo swing al free. I suoi interessi si estendono inoltre a tutta la American Music, che interpreta ...
