Jacob Anderskov: Granular Alchemy

Read "Granular Alchemy" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il giovane pianista e compositore danese Jacob Anderskov è qui alla testa di un lussureggiante quartetto per il resto tutto a stelle e strisce, con Chris Speed, Michael Formanek e Gerald Cleaver, che nell'iniziale “Sediments" ci propone un jazz avanzato, piuttosto diretto, leggibile, ma al tempo stesso elegante, pur con qualche tramatura intestina più increspata e nervosa. Il successivo ...
