This week we dive into the music that got me hooked on jazz, from crossover hits like Miles Davis' Bitches Brew and Dave Brubeck's “Take Five" to maybe lesser-known, but equally fabulous, tracks by Marc Ribot, Dave Holland, and more.

Gary Peacock: Tangents

Read "Tangents" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Nel corso della sua lunghissima carriera, il nome di Gary Peacock è stato molto frequentemente associato ad alcuni grandi pianisti che hanno rivoluzionato la concezione del piano trio, a cominciare dai suoi sodalizi negli anni '60 con Paul Bley e Bill Evans; con quest'ultimo il rapporto è stato di breve durata, ma ha lasciato tracce evidenti ...

Bill Carrothers: Red Planet

Read "Red Planet" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Since the '80s, Michigan pianist Bill Carrothers has inventively and tirelessly fashioned himself an enviable discography, which includes 2008's Home Row (Pirouet Records, 2008) with Gary Peacock and Bill Stewart and 2010's tribute to revered trumpeter Clifford Brown Joy Spring (Pirouet Records, 2010 ). A critical fave on the touring circuit, he's highlighted gigs the world ...

Pablo Held Trio: Investigations

Read "Investigations" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Anyone interested in discovering the fascinating story of pianist Marc Copland should start out by reading John Kelman's excellent article: “Marc Copland: Growth Through Collaboration" (2005).

Read "After the Fall" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

If, after thirty five years and dozens of standard bearing recordings you're not spoiled rotten, or decisively worse, indifferent to the mythic elegance and boundless creativity of the Standards Trio, then welcome gratefully the latest two-disc chronicle, After The Fall. Recorded on November 14, 1998 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, this was Keith Jarrett's ...

Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette: After the Fall

Read "After the Fall" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Sembra ormai definitivamente tramontata la speranza di rivedere in concerto il trio Standards di Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock e Jack DeJohnette, che in trent'anni di attività ha riportato il moderno trio pianistico ai vertici dell'espressione jazzistica, ponendosi come punto di riferimento obbligato per tutti coloro che hanno adottato la stessa formula strumentale negli ultimi tre decenni. ...

Noirish

Read "Noirish" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

More music that could work very well as soundtrack for an imaginary film noir... with some spaghetti-western variations.

Happy Listening! And if you like what you hear, listen to the first part of this noir investigation.
