Jerry Granelli V16: Vancouver '08 (CD+DVD)

Read "Vancouver '08 (CD+DVD)" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il quartetto che si cela dietro questa ermetica sigla è composto dallo straordinario chitarrista slide Dave Tronzo, dal meno noto chitarrista Christian Kogel, da J.

Jerry Granelli V16: The Sonic Temple

Read "The Sonic Temple" reviewed by John Kelman

Approaching seventy, Jerry Granelli's career has been defined by exploration and stylistic diversity. Forget that he's the drummer on pianist Vince Guaraldi's classic A Charlie Brown Christmas (Fantasy, 1965). Consider, instead, his own discography, ranging from the pop deconstructions of his twin-guitar UFB group and the freer complexion of his duet records with clarinetist Jeff Reilly ...
