Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2019

Read "Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Is it jazz? Perhaps not in the narrowest sense, but each of the releases below arguably retains enough of a foothold in the tradition to justify that description. Maybe we've finally reached the point where the question no longer matters. In any case, what these artists have in common is a commitment to venturing outward in ...

Matthew Shipp: Invisible Light - Live São Paulo

Read "Invisible Light - Live São Paulo" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Matthew Shipp's playing has become so distinct over the years that it is difficult to view him from the perspective of influences. There are numerous examples of the virtuoso pianist-composer channeling Cecil Taylor, Andrew Hill, Thelonious Monk or even Morton Feldman, but not through imitation. Nor is his own identifiable style so tangible that his music ...

Philip Thomas: Morton Feldman Piano

Read "Morton Feldman Piano" reviewed by John Eyles

Everything about this six-hour, five-disc box-set of Morton Feldman piano music radiates the care, attention-to-detail and, yes, love that have been invested in producing it. The artwork, packaging, documentation and information are all second to none, as is the crystal-clear recording quality. Any cynic questioning the need for another exquisitely-produced box-set should note that, among its ...

La sera di lunedì 30 settembre, dopo breve malattia, è scomparso Gianni Lenoci, pianista, compositore, didatta, teorico, intellettuale tra i più originali e prestigiosi del nostro Paese.

Jorn Swart: Malnoia

Read "Malnoia" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Questo Malnoia è un lavoro singolare sin dalla composizione biografica dei suoi tre componenti, tutti presenti sulla scena newyorchese ma per due terzi di provenienza euroepa -olandese Jorn Swart, tedesco Benjamin Gutzeit -mentre l'ultimo membro, Lucas Pino, viene dall'Arizona. Ma ancor più singolare è il fatto che accanto al pianoforte del leader si trovino la viola ...
