Baldo Martinez Grupo: Vientos cruzados

Read "Vientos cruzados" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Baldo Martinez, cinquantasette anni, galiziano, è da tempo uno dei più interessanti bassisti-leader attivi nel vecchio continente: dirige sempre gruppi con una precisa identità, portandoli spesso e volentieri in sala d'incisione. Questo suo ultimo lavoro, registrato a Madrid nel maggio 2016, non fa che confermare tale assunto.

L'ha realizzato un quartetto senza pianoforte, ...

Henri Texier Hope Quartet: Live at L'improviste

Read "Live at L'improviste" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Registrato dal vivo nel 2012, questo documento conferma l'ottima impressione destata dallo Hope Quartet in alcuni festival europei recenti: palpitante senso della storia, padronanza di un linguaggio legato ai dettami boppistici ma apertissimo alle soluzioni informali, voci strumentali di plastica bellezza, capacità di garantire un suono di gruppo senza rinunciare alla valorizzazione dei singoli.
