Ron Korb: Pan-Global Flutist

Read "Ron Korb: Pan-Global Flutist" reviewed by Rob Caldwell

In a 20-year career, Grammy nominated flutist Ron Korb has experienced the lows and highs of a touring musician. He's been stuck in the Panamanian jungle when the bus transporting he and his band to their show broke down, leaving them teetering on the top of a hillside for hours in the blazing sun while repairs ...

Freddie Hubbard: At Onkel Pӧ's Carnegie Hall

Read "At Onkel Pӧ's Carnegie Hall" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Se si dovesse per gioco indicare un trombettista della storia del jazz che sintetizzasse tecnica strumentale, flessibilità espressiva, capacità mimetiche in relazione al contesto e ricchezza di curriculum forse la scelta cadrebbe su Freddie Hubbard. Il suo aplomb di giocatore era mirabile, valgano per tutte le sue apparizioni a fianco di John Coltrane, in Out to ...

Cesar Cardoso: Interchange

Read "Interchange" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Every now and then, musicians whose names and reputations are relatively unknown may be appraised in some measure by the company they keep. On his third recording as leader, Portuguese-born tenor saxophonist Cesar Cardoso, a new name in this neighborhood, is in splendid company indeed, adding to his working quartet the talents of multi-Grammy Award nominee ...

Diane Moser: Birdsongs

Read "Birdsongs" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

There is a tradition of composers finding inspiration in the songs of birds. Olivier Messiaen did it in the classical realm and Eric Dolphy did it in the jazz world. Pianist Diane Moser follows in that tradition on this CD, turning birdsong into a bevy of haunting compositions both for solo piano and the trio of ...

Pugliese di nascita ma lombardo d'adozione, classe 1978, Francesco Chiapperini, clarinettista e sassofonista nonché compositore, è senza ombra di dubbio uno dei nomi più interessanti emersi in questi ultimi anni nel panorama del jazz di casa nostra. Il suo ultimo album, The Big Earth, inciso dal vivo alla Scighera di Milano da un organico di dodici ...

Marco Colonna

Read "Marco Colonna" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Denis Colin Trio, Fluide (In Situ, 1998).
Un disco strepitoso, all'apice della concezione del trio di Denis Colin. Il suono del suo clarinetto basso è stata sempre fonte di ispirazione per me. È il meno “classico" dei francesi e questo disco si fregia della maestria di Ramon Lopez. Inoltre è una sorta di concept, ...

Meet Mark Weber

Read "Meet Mark Weber" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

Almost every aspect of Mark Weber's life ends up intersecting with jazz; he just might be the original Renaissance jazz fan. A former wedding photographer, he found himself photographing nearly every jazz musician to pass through Los Angeles and Albuquerque in the past several decades and, without planning to, ended up writing for CODA, deejaying a ...
