Jerome Sabbagh, Simon Jermyn, Allison Miller: Lean

Read "Lean" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Jerome Sabbagh fa parte di quella folta schiera di musicisti non usi alle luci dei riflettori mediatici o alle prime pagine, ma particolarmente stimati dai colleghi (non a caso Paul Motian lo volle fortemente nel nuovo trio messo in piedi poco prima della sua scomparsa). Se il suo biglietto da visita come leader è il quartetto ...

Il meglio del 2016 secondo Vincenzo Roggero

Read "Il meglio del 2016 secondo Vincenzo Roggero" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Questi i migliori dischi dell'anno? Risposta complicata perché nonostante la massa imponente di musica, fruibile in tutte le forme e in tutti modi possibili, si ha la sensazione che manchi qualcosa (o molto), che siano precluse realtà musicali periferiche rispetto ai normali canali di distribuzione ma importanti dal punto di vista della testimonianza e della valenza ...

Allison Miller & Honey Ear Trio: Lean; Swivel

Read "Allison Miller & Honey Ear Trio: Lean; Swivel" reviewed by Doug Collette

Alison Miller may well be the renaissance woman of modern jazz. High-profile mainstream gigs like appearing with the band on Late Night with Seth Myers hardly hint at the diverse complexity of her collaborations and work under own name, most conspicuously including the band Boom Tic Boom. She parses out individual components of her artistry with ...

Simon Jermyn's Trot A Mouse: Pictorial Atlas of Mammals

Read "Pictorial Atlas of Mammals" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Nel peregrinare per il mondo di Simon Jermyn, bassista di Dublino da anni residente a Brooklyn, la permanenza in quel di Reykjavik, Islanda, ed il contatto con quella scena musicale, sembra aver esercitato una particolare influenza sul mondo musicale presente in Pictorial Atlas of Mammals. Già dai primi minuti emerge con chiarezza il pensiero che informerà ...

Read "Diatribe Records Solo Series II" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Four years on from Diatribe Records' outstanding Solo Series I, which featured solo piano recordings by Izumi Kimura and Isabelle O'Connell, a guitar solo offering from Simon Jermyn and a clarinet solo work from Paul Roe, the Dublin label is back with the equally impressive Solo Series II. The four musicians presented in this second round ...

Sean Mac Erlaine: Long After The Music Is Gone and This Is How We Fly

Read "Sean Mac Erlaine: Long After The Music Is Gone and This Is How We Fly" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The common denominator between these two CDs is Dublin-based multi-reedman/composer Seán Mac Erlaine, one of the most progressive musicians in Ireland today. Equally at home in contemporary jazz, free improvisation or traditional/modern Irish folk settings, Mac Erlaine has been a leading figure in Irish experimental music for a decade. As one of the curators of the ...

Diatribe Records: Heart and Soul of the Music

Read "Diatribe Records: Heart and Soul of the Music" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Whilst Ireland has long produced music of world renown, this tiny, most Westerly European nation has never been quite so famous for producing cutting edge jazz. However, as European jazz has gradually let slip the American accent--an evolution that perhaps gathered its greatest momentum with the birth of the ECM label--so, too, in Ireland, a new ...
