Read "Free For a Minute (1965/72)" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Non erano mai stati ufficialmente ristampati su CD né Disposabilty né Sortie, due momenti a loro modo significativi nell'evoluzione del linguaggio del sassofonista Steve Lacy durante gli anni Sessanta.
Li ripropone oggi la Emanem, in un doppio CD completato da alcuni interessanti inediti.

Giulio Stermieri: Stopping

Read "Stopping" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Basta scorrere la scaletta del disco per farsi un'idea dei riferimenti musicali di questo piano trio e apprezzarne preventivamente il coraggio: un brano a testa di Cole Porter, Thelonious Monk, Ornette Coleman e Paul Motian, ben tre di Carla Bley. Non male.

The indefatigable Bill Frisell

Read "The indefatigable Bill Frisell" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Since he first appeared on the international scene in the late '70s, Bill Frisell has shown considerable originality and strong individuality. Thanks to an instrumental voice that is both immediately recognizable and immensely versatile, he continues to stand out among the artists that have contributed to rewriting the role of guitar in jazz and beyond.
