Human Feel: Gold

Read "Gold" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The band's appellation might be Human Feel, but after over 30 years of recording and performing together, maybe the quartet of saxophonists Andrew D'Angelo and Chris Speed, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel and drummer Jim Black should change their name to 'Super Hero Feel.'

Read "Il meglio del 2017 secondo Neri Pollastri" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Selezionare una dozzina di dischi e di concerti per attribuire loro la palma di “migliori dell'anno" può essere un gioco divertente, così come una sciocchezza colossale; in ogni caso, lo si percepisca o meno, è una tremenda responsabilità, nei confronti tanto dei musicisti, quanto degli ascoltatori.
