The Firebirds: Aladdin's Dream

Read "Aladdin's Dream" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Three years on from The Firebirds (ILK Music, 2015), a riveting trio interpretation of the music of Igor Stravinsky--and to a lesser extent of Aram Khatjaturjan--Stefan Pasborg turns his attention closer to home with the music of Danish composer Carl Nielsen (1865-1931). The debut recording was in Pasborg's name but second time out the trio, featuring ...

C’è del mood in Danimarca! Viaggio nella Copenhagen del jazz, tra tradizione e nuovi collettivi

Read "C’è del mood in Danimarca! Viaggio nella Copenhagen del jazz, tra tradizione e nuovi collettivi" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

La città di Copenhagen è stata tra le prime e più attive capitali europee ad accogliere, sin dagli anni Cinquanta, alcuni dei migliori jazzisti americani che trovavano in Europa condizioni di lavoro e di rispetto artistico maggiori che in patria.
Musicisti come Oscar Pettiford, Stan Getz, Ben Webster, Dexter Gordon, Duke Jordan, Kenny Drew ...

Nutshell e Nattjazz 2016

Read "Nutshell e Nattjazz 2016" reviewed by Luca Vitali

Visitare Bergen in maggio è sempre un terno al lotto: il clima, spesso piovoso, condiziona l'umore, ma quando è il sole ad accoglierti, l'incanto è assicurato. È da qualche anno che mancavo da Bergen e non facevo visita all'USF (United Sardine Factory), antica fabbrica di sardine convertita in tempio della cultura di quella città, e come ...

Stefan Pasborg: The Firebirds

Read "The Firebirds" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Il quarantenne batterista danese Stefan Pasborg, un carnet di collaborazioni veramente cospicuo e brillante, è l'artefice di questo ambizioso progetto discografico che consiste nella rilettura di due dei massimi capolavori stravinskyani, L'uccello di fuoco (1910) e La sagra della primavera (1913), integrati (ultimo pezzo) da un ulteriore balletto del 1948 opera di Khachaturian.

Ibrahim Electric: Rumours from Outer Space

Read "Rumours from Outer Space" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Una chitarra elettrica Telecaster, un organo Hammond B3, una batteria e il viaggio nello spazio ha inizio. I tre astronauti hanno le sembianze di avventurosi musicisti danesi e il nome del power trio che li rappresenta la dice lunga sulle traiettorie spaziali percorse in questo Rumours from Outer Space.

Ossia un crogiolo di ...
