Helen Sung: Sung with Words

Read "Sung with Words" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Solidamente collocata in area mainstream dagli anni del suo esordio, agli inizi del millennio, la texana Helen Sung s'è fatta apprezzare per il brillante pianismo e la guida di vivaci formazioni con eccellenti partner.
L'estetica di fondo del nuovo disco non è diversa dai lavori precedenti ma aggiunge un'interessante relazione con la poesia, ispirata ...

Blue Note Records: Beyond The Notes

Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes
Eagle Vision
2019

Seventy-one minutes hardly seems long enough to tell the story of a record label so profoundly influential as Blue Note. Yet even a marathon film of multiple parts could not capture the essence of this phenomenon any more completely and certainly no more succinctly ...

Jason Palmer: Rhyme And Reason

Read "Rhyme And Reason" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Trombettista rigoroso e dalla tecnica scintillante, tra i migliori della sua generazione, Jason Palmer non gode della popolarità che merita. Una causa può essere la collocazione appartata di insegnante al Berklee College of Music e al New England Conservatory.

Nello stile ricorda Clifford Brown, che ha rappresentato la sua massima influenza formativa, e ...

Bob Sheppard: The Fine Line

Read "The Fine Line" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Ironically, probably the only reason that Bob Sheppard isn't a household name (other than in jazz households) is because he's such an in-demand sideman. Splitting his time between Los Angeles, and New York he also teaches jazz at The University of Southern California Thornton School of Music. But he's worked, amongst many others, with such jazz ...

Aaron Parks on Music, Mathematics and Making the Scene

Read "Aaron Parks on Music, Mathematics and Making the Scene" reviewed by Leo Sidran

How does pianist Aaron Parks describe himself? “A bit odd. I play piano, write songs, and take pictures of doors with my phone."

Raised on a small island near Seattle, Washington, Aaron found himself hungry for more creative and intellectual stimulation than his immediate surroundings could offer. He enrolled in college at the age ...
