Franz Koglmann: Lo-lee-taa - Music on Nabokov

Read "Lo-lee-taa - Music on Nabokov" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La bella intervista di Paolo Peviani a Franz Koglmann, pubblicata nel febbraio di quest'anno nella rubrica Il Questionario di Proust [per leggerla clicca qui] evidenzia bene le coordinate entro cui si muove la musica del trombettista e compositore austriaco: i suoi gusti musicali privilegiano Lee Konitz e Jimmy Giuffre, l'arte di Bill Dixon e di John Cage; in letteratura si orienta verso ...

Diego Minciacchi: Piano Works 1

Read "Piano Works 1" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La musica del compositore e neuroscienziato Diego Minciacchi è sempre sorprendente. Anche laddove Minciacchi si orienta su un solo strumento e il repertorio pare ripiegare sul convenzionale, si trovano elementi che trasformano semplici o banali premesse in sfide riuscite. Il primo volume dei “Piano Works" pubblicato dalla Col Legno si distacca dal repertorio elettroacustico e dal precedente Aforesaid (2001). I ...

Anita O'Day: Indestructible!

Read "Indestructible!" reviewed by Jim Santella

Recorded at several sessions during the last several years, this program of standards comes from the heart. Although Anita O'Day's voice has changed considerably, she still swings comfortably with a relaxed composure and a positive outlook. She interprets each of these golden chestnuts with the same confident spirit that she showed us many years ago during ...

Anita O'Day: Indestructible!

Read "Indestructible!" reviewed by R. Emmet Sweeney



Nostalgia can be a dangerous thing. Take, for example, Anita O'Day's new album. The 86 year-old, who made her name as the lead vocalist for the Gene Krupa Orchestra, hasn't released an album for thirteen years, and the results on Indestructible! are a clear indication why. Her voice has been ravaged by decades of ...
