Ricordiamo Michael Brecker

Read "Ricordiamo Michael Brecker" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Sono trascorsi più di dieci anni dalla morte di Michael Brecker, avvenuta il 13 gennaio 2007, il giorno dopo quella di Alice Coltrane. Brecker è stato il massimo e più influente sax tenore post-coltraniano ed è quanto mai doveroso ricordarne la vita e il percorso artistico.

Hudson - DeJohnette Grenadier Medeski Scofield: Hudson

Read "Hudson" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Rightly vaunted as a 'supergroup,' specifically in the Tony Williams Lifetime mold, this eponymously titled band really does qualify as a super quartet, so much so that any background information on these four protagonists would seem superfluous.

In a career that has spanned over several decades with releases that have encompassed various types of musical styles and sounds, guitarist John Scofield has always managed to emphasize the importance of melody by building fragments of hummable tunes around musically abstract compositions.
