Read "The Complete Jan Akkerman: Focusing on a Life's Work" reviewed by John Kelman

He may be largely regarded as the most influential guitarist to emerge from the Netherlands, a country that, bordering on the North Sea, is roughly one-quarter the physical size of England and, with a current number of about seventeen million, has just one-third the population of the UK's largest country. Still, despite garnering major in-country recognition, ...

Andy Manndorff: Dirt & Soil

Read "Dirt & Soil" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Il nome di Andy Manndorff potrebbe risultare ai più sconosciuto ed anche in Austria, dove risiede, non ha mai raggiunto la notorietà che il talento e le importanti collaborazioni (la prestigiosa Vienna Art Orchestra e il pianista olandese Jasper van't Hof tra gli altri), avrebbero meritato. Il motivo? Difficile individuare una sola causa ma certamente lo ...

Charlie Mariano: The Great Concert

Read "The Great Concert" reviewed by John Kelman

When expat American woodwind multi-instrumentalist Charlie Mariano passed away in the summer of 2009 at the age of 85, his death--like much of his life--seemed sadly lost in the shuffle in North America. The expat American--who relocated to Europe in the early 1970d-- should have cemented an international reputation with his early alto work with Stan ...
