Sons of Kemet: Your Queen Is A Reptile

Read "Your Queen Is A Reptile" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Con il consueto ritardo (tempo tecnico di maturazione lo definirebbe qualcuno di più diplomatico) anche il mondo globalizzato del jazz si sta accorgendo del talento di Shabaka Hutchings. Chi bazzica infatti il jazz europeo più vivace non può non avere notato da tempo il sassofonista inglese, con i The Comet Is Coming, con Louis Moholo, con ...

1. Charles Mingus, Mingus Plays Piano, (Impulse!, 1964).

Questo è uno dei dischi che amo di più, fonte di ascolto ma, ancora oggi, di studio. Ci sono soluzioni armoniche davvero moderne, ancora oggi, brani come «Myself When I'm Real» potrebbero essere stati scritti oggi... con la differenza che la passione di Mingus è ...

Part 1 | Part 2

Some three-and-a-half minutes into Release, the Deram recording of Mike Westbrook's seminal suite mixing Swing classics with Westbrook originals, after a scorching solo by John Surman on “The Few," an alto saxophone cadenza emerged from a free ensemble passage: the tone was penetrating, incisive, severe, the phrasing intense, passionate ...

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 ...

Read "The Blue Notes and the Brotherhood of Breath - Marching to a Different Drum" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Early one August morning in 1964, seven people crossed the border by train passing from South Africa into Mozambique.
