Mose Allison: American Legend Live in California

Read "American Legend Live in California" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Che dire di questo live del 2006, quando il suo protagonista viaggiava verso gli ottanta (li avrebbe compiuti di lì a un anno, l'11 novembre 2007)? Poco e male, viene spontaneo affermare.

Che si tratti di brani a tempo veloce o medio lento, originals o ...

Mark Sherman: Family First

Read "Family First" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

Vibraphonist/composer Mark Sherman records as he has over the past twenty years and, unlike others who specialize on this instrument, continues to show no interest in expanding his sound to avant-garde or world music influences. What Sherman does exhibit is his use of Milt Jackson's blues and Bobby Hutcherson's shimmering vibes-style. Sherman's Family First again demonstrates ...

Mark Sherman: Family First

Read "Family First" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Family First, by New York-based vibraphonist and educator Mark Sherman, revolves around similar concepts that reflect his spiritual, artistic, and personal priorities to reach, touch and move people. This is his second album with a working band that has developed a distinctive sound which includes the unison playing of Sherman's vibes and Joe Magnarelli's flugelhorn.
