Le affinità elettive di Enrico Rava e Tomasz Stanko

Read "Le affinità elettive di Enrico Rava e Tomasz Stanko" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Lo scorso luglio Enrico Rava e Tomasz Stanko hanno varato un super-gruppo ECM per un tour europeo di oltre due settimane, in Italia e Polonia, ovviamente, ma anche in Austria, Belgio, Norvegia, Paesi Bassi e Romania. Ne abbiamo approfittato per chiedergli di mettere da parte un momento di calma durante il frenetico tour per una “intervista ...

The Politics of Dancing: Jazz and Protest, Part 2

Read "The Politics of Dancing: Jazz and Protest, Part 2" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Part 1 of Jazz and Protest took an in-depth look at two landmark artists and the songs that laid the groundwork for protest within the jazz community. Billie Holiday's “Strange Fruit" took a circuitous route from its origins as a poem to its successful recording on a small label that was not afraid to lend a ...

C. Michael Bailey’s Best Releases of 2016

Read "C. Michael Bailey’s Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Shifting priorities in 2016 prevented me from either listening to or reviewing as much music as I have in the past. Thus, I did not take a swing at many fine recordings that by all accounts should be on this list like: John Scofield's Country for Old Men (Impulse!); Keith Jarrett's A Multitude of Angels (ECM); ...

Randy Kaye Quintet: Brooklyn 1967, May 24th

Read "Brooklyn 1967, May 24th" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Ha abbastanza dell'incredibile il destino di queste matrici: registrate, verosimilmente per finire su un doppio LP, nella primavera 1967, in studio, con materiale di sicuro interesse e adeguata resa fonica, sono rimaste invece nel fatidico cassetto (o scaffale che dir si voglia) per quasi mezzo secolo, uscendo a otto anni (nessun anniversario particolare, quindi) dalla morte ...

Certo, aggiungiamo qualche nostra considerazione a questo ascolto tuttora straordinario di materiali già in precedenza pubblicati, scelti ora dalla svizzera hatOLOGY per ...

The Blue Notes and the Brotherhood of Breath - Marching to a Different Drum

Read "The Blue Notes and the Brotherhood of Breath - Marching to a Different Drum" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Early one August morning in 1964, seven people crossed the border by train passing from South Africa into Mozambique. It was an unusual group of people--five black men, one white man and one white woman. Any “mixing of the races" was, of course, immediately suspicious in apartheid South Africa. The six men--Louis Moholo, Chris McGregor, Dudu ...

Bassist Mark Dresser has had a long, distinguished career in jazz and new music working with a long list of musicians that includes Anthony Braxton, Tim Berne, Anthony Davis and John Zorn but he hasn't recorded much lately as a leader.
