Joris Teepe: Conversations

Read "Conversations" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Don Braden appartiene a quella schiera di sassofonisti emersi tra gli anni ottanta e novanta sull'onda di un neo bop caratterizzato da forti legami coi maestri degli anni cinquanta e sessanta (Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter) e relazioni col modello Blue Note.

In un quarto di secolo ha espresso al ...

The John L. Nelson Project: Don't Play With Love

Read "Don't Play With Love" reviewed by Phillip Woolever

Playing a key role in creating a musician can mean just as much as creating music. In that regard, this is indeed an ironic title since strong emotional ties formed the beginning of both the song's origins and offspring.

Vincent Herring: Night and Day

Read "Night and Day" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

La musica di Vincent Herring discende inequivocabilmente dall'hard bop. Come da tradizione, Night and Day ricalca in modo esemplare l'energia e l'irruenza espressiva insita nel sound di quel filone jazzistico.

Nel modo di operare, Herring non si sottrae alla convenzione di disporre tromba e sassofono davanti a tutto e lascia che siano pianoforte, contrabbasso ...

Read "That Feelin'" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Mike LeDonne's splendid Groover Quartet has earned a cozy groove for itself, somewhere between fresh from the oven and the halcyon days of organ combos led by Jimmy Smith, Charles Earland, Jimmy McGriff, Groove Holmes, Shirley Scott, Don Patterson and others.
