In the 21st century there are countless ...

Mats Gustafsson

Read "Mats Gustafsson" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

If Mats Gustafsson's approach to music were to be described with a single adjective, it would have to be “intense."

1. Hank Mobley, Hank Mobley (Blue Note, 1957).

Il disco jazz definitivo?! È tutto perfettamente bilanciato in questa supersession. Il sax tenore è poetico e la tromba di Art Farmer non è mai stata così lirica ed emozionante. Art Blakey è un genio dello swing e la foto di copertina è una delle mie ...

Early one August morning in 1964, seven people crossed the border by train passing from South Africa into Mozambique. It was an unusual group of people--five black men, one white man and one white woman. Any “mixing of the races" was, of course, immediately suspicious in apartheid South Africa. The six men--Louis Moholo, Chris McGregor, Dudu ...

Read "Intervista a Roberto Bellatalla" reviewed by Daniele Vogrig

Se i concetti di fraternità e universalità da sempre caratterizzano il jazz in tutte le sue forme, senza dubbio e a buon diritto Roberto Bellatalla ne può essere considerato uno dei massimi ambasciatori.

Amsterdam, Londra, Johannesburg. Quaranta anni di storia (e di storie), poi il ritorno a casa. Ammesso e non concesso che ...

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

Edgar Varèse's defiant statement in the face of public and critical indifference -"The present day composer refuses to die"--could so easily apply to composer-bassist Barry Guy. He has earned over the years a deep and lasting respect from certain fans and critics, though more so in ...

Sitting Bull: Sitting Bull

Read "Sitting Bull" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The piano and percussion duo may be two-thirds of that most ubiquitous trio formation, but it is not often heard.
