Carla Marciano: Tensione, melodia e improvvisazione

Read "Carla Marciano: Tensione, melodia e improvvisazione" reviewed by Paolo Marra

La libera improvvisazione, aspetto fondamentale della dialettica jazz, ispirata da colonne sonore di film entrati nella storia della cinematografia moderna ormai patrimonio della memoria collettiva. Così potremmo sintetizzare l'ultimo lavoro discografico della sassofonista Carla Marciano, tra le più apprezzate a livello internazionale, dal titolo Psychosis. L'album rappresenta un personale omaggio al direttore d'orchestra statunitense Bernard Herrmann ...

Read "Rick Lawn: The Evolution of Big Band Sounds in America" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

From the latter part of the Jazz Age through the Swing Era, big bands dominated the jazz scene and a large part of the entertainment industry. After World War II, their fortunes declined, but their music soared to new heights, spurred on by innovative leaders, instrumentalists, and very importantly, the composers/arrangers who worked behind the scenes ...

Read "I nuovi progetti di Miho Hazama" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

È da mezzo secolo, ovvero dai tempi Toshiko Akiyoshi, che dal Giappone non emergeva una bandleader così talentuosa. A soli 33 anni Miho brucia letteralmente le tappe: presenta il terzo disco a capo del suo collettivo M_Unit Dancer in Nowhere e, quasi in contemporanea e sempre per la Sunnyside Records, la sua personale rilettura dei classici ...

Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor

Read "Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Marcus Miller is most often described as a jazz, funk, soul, fusion, and R&B bassist. As much as that is accurate, it is a description that falls well short of the mark. Miller is a high-end musical sponge who manages to incorporate today's cultures and rhythms into his compositions, layered within the framework of sound he ...

Antonio Faraò, l'eklektiko

Read "Antonio Faraò, l'eklektiko" reviewed by Daniele Vogrig

In alcuni casi la produzione di un disco può rappresentare un momento di svolta nella carriera di un musicista, non solo da un punto di vista musicale ma anche a livello puramente espressivo. Eklektik è l'ultimo album di Antonio Faraò e a buon diritto può essere considerato un sapiente concentrato di fusion, capace di trascendere generi ...

John Williams: Before Star Wars

John Williams: Before Star Wars

If you intended to become a jazz musician in the 1950s, “John Williams" was probably not the most ideal name to go with. By my count, there were eight during this time period. This doesn't include several John Williams with middle initials and others known as Johnny Williams. Perhaps the best known of the bunch today ...
