Alicia Hall Moran: Here Today

Read "Here Today" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Le sintesi tra canto operistico e universo musicale afroamericano sono state sporadiche. In generale la relazione tra i due mondi è apparsa difficilmente compatibile per la forte diversità tra le due estetiche: mi sembra che l'esempio più riuscito di conciliazione resti l'opera Porgy and Bess . Di recente un significativo passo avanti lo sta compiendo il ...

Arto contemporaneo!

Harriet Tubman: Araminta

Read "Araminta" reviewed by Vic Albani

Se il buon giorno si vede dal mattino, il 2017 già dai suoi primi passi potrebbe evidenziarsi come la classica annata da ricordare. La musica in giro in questo periodo (specialmente laddove non si grida alla crisi ad ogni piè sospinto) sembra davvero valere più che la semplice menzione cronachistica. Dopo l'ultimo lavoro dei Kneebody (Anti-Hero), ...

Harriet Tubman and Wadada Leo Smith: Araminta

Read "Araminta" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Things are urgent now. Actually, they have been critical for some time, but you might have chosen to ignore them. Politics, racism, sexism, war, inequality, and xenophobia are now issues that you must confront at home, work, in social media, and even within your bowling league. Everyone must have an opinion, and maybe that is the ...

Peeter Uuskyla / Tellef Øgrim / Anders Berg: Ullr

Read "Ullr" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Thirty years ago, the trio Power Tools made a one-off recording Strange Meeting (Antilles New Directions, 1987). The long out-of-print LP by Bill Frisell, Melvin Gibbs, and Ronald Shannon Jackson is on many a collector's want list. While only a short-lived band, its memory persists. It was for many, a perfect storm of free-metal-jazz music. If ...

Elliott Sharp: Momentum Anomaly

Read "Momentum Anomaly" reviewed by Vic Albani

Elliott Sharp. Uno dei nomi su cui, davvero, ci si sarebbe da scrivere parole su parole. Amato e odiato. Compreso e incompreso. In breve, un fiume inarrestabile di musica; una discografia monumentale. Torrenziale come i miliardi di note che diffonde nell'universo musicale d'avanguardia da metà degli anni Settanta. Decine e decine di progetti: ordine e disordine, ...
