Ryan Meagher: Lost Days

Read "Lost Days" reviewed by Don Phipps

On Lost Days, guitarist Ryan Meagher offers up ten expressive and entertaining compositions that run the gamut from blues to funk and from swing to rock. His compositions are hot and spontaneous--they break apart and fuse back together in kaleidoscopic fashion.

The Jamie Saft Quartet: Blue Dream

Read "Blue Dream" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Se Solo a Genova ci aveva rivelato il lato sorprendentemente intimo e meditativo di Jamie Saft, Blue Dream espande sia a livello sonoro che di formazione quel mood e quella visione. Regalandoci così un album classico per struttura e concezione, sobrio nel rivisitare i canoni di un jazz in gran parte ancorato alla strada maestra, creativo ...

The Bad Plus: It's Hard

Read "It's Hard" reviewed by Luca Canini

Bellino. Con un paio di cose decisamente riuscite. Ma che pochissimo aggiunge (e nulla toglie) a quel che i Bad Plus hanno detto, confermato e ribadito nel corso di quindici anni di più che onorata carriera. Fine della recensione. Nel senso che quel che leggerete da qui in poi potrebbe esservi utile nel caso in cui ...
