Anders Lønne Grønseth: Multiverse

Read "Multiverse" reviewed by Chris May

Ever since Jan Garbarek put Norwegian jazz on the map, and especially so after the international success of his rigorously ascetic Officium (ECM) in 1994, the music has acquired a reputation for being not entirely passionless, but emotionally withdrawn. The “Scandinavian sound" which Garbarek championed was conceived in collaboration with ECM label founder Manfred Eicher as ...

Keith Jarrett: La Fenice

Read "La Fenice" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

La pubblicazione di questo CD era attesa da molto tempo, già programmata quando il concerto fu registrato nel Luglio 2006 nel prestigioso scenario del Teatro La Fenice di Venezia, dove il pianista si era esibito in precedenza solo una volta come membro del gruppo di Miles Davis ben 35 anni prima.

Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music. My definition of 'poetry' is fairly broad and ...

Read "Guido Harari, dietro al mirino come un jazzista" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

"Potresti dire che sono un fotografo jazz, alla faccia di chi mi definisce da sempre un fotografo rock!." Guido Harari scherza volentieri sulla sua nomea di “fotografo musicale," autore di alcuni degli scatti entrati nell'immaginario collettivo e che ritraggono artisti come David Bowie, Tom Waits, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Leonard Cohen, Fabrizio De André (alcuni dei ...

Hubro: Making Room for Marginalized Music

Read "Hubro: Making Room for Marginalized Music" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

There are times when a record label becomes more than just a label. It becomes an embodiment of a certain period in time. In Norway, think of the German label ECM with the emergence of the so-called Nordic sound propelled by Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek and drummer Jon Christensen. Later, Rune Grammofon summed up a more ...
