Read "Marc Ribot & The Young Philadelphians al Teatro Manzoni di Milano" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

Aperitivo in Concerto
Teatro Manzoni
Milano
22.11.2015

Esploratore come pochi altri, Marc Ribot ha attraversato i territori musicali più disparati. Dal jazz di John Zorn alla canzone d'autore di Joe Henry, dalle atmosfere quintessenzialmente newyorchesi dei Lounge Lizards alla musica cubana di Arsenio Rodriguez, gli ambiti in cui il ...

Karen Mantler: Business is Bad

Read "Business is Bad" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been nearly two decades since Karen Mantler last released an album under her own name on the XtraWATT label belonging to her similarly coifed mother, pianist/composer Carla Bley, but she's been anything but idle.

Five years have passed since the release of Party Intellectuals, the 2008 Pi Recordings debut of Ceramic Dog, a power trio led by legendary Downtown guitarist Marc Ribot. Much has changed in the ensuing years, including the recording industry--a subject fervently addressed on Your Turn, the ensemble's eclectic sophomore effort.

Jazz: A Blessed Obsession

Read "Jazz: A Blessed Obsession" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jazz listeners travel some strange and beautiful paths. It might have all begun with collectors trying to find a legendary Edison cylinder that New Orleans trumpeter Buddy Bolden--some believe to be the very first jazz musician--may (or may not) have recorded in 1904. Fast forward to modern times, a quick scan of eBay and the exorbitant ...

Bryan Baker: This Morning Day

Read "This Morning Day" reviewed by Gina Vodegel

Listening to guitarist/composer Bryan Baker's This Morning Day --the follow-up to his 2006 debut, Aphotic (Enilkrad Music)--is like going on a blind date. When focusing on the music--instead of Baker's impressive résumé--it's imperative to keep in mind that the excitement and anticipation of the unknown is half the fun. In this case, it's a promise that's ...
