Pete Robbins Quartet: Pyramid

Read "Pyramid" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Avevamo lasciato Pete Robbins come protagonista del notevole album con il Transatlantic Quartet (Live in Basel) ed eccolo di nuovo, nel frattempo impegnato in diversi progetti, con un quartetto newyorkese da sogno, composto da Vijay Iyer, Eivind Opsvik e Tyshawn Sorey. Pyramid è un album un po' particolare, che assembla materiale originale a riletture di classici ...

Pete Robbins: Pyramid

Read "Pyramid" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

New York-based saxophonist, composer Pete Robbins has been on a fast- track, surging to the upper echelon of global jazz talent. And Pyramid rekindles impressions of drummer, composer John Hollenbeck's early 2013 release Songs I Like A Lot, where specific pop and rock songs from yesteryear, inspire the artists to execute a personal reinterpretation or refresh ...

Pete Robbins Transatlantic Quartet: Live in Basel

Read "Live in Basel" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Pete Robbins, sassofonista e compositore di Brooklyn, non trova ancora alcun riscontro in Italia, a dispetto delle numerose tournèe europee effettuate. Leader di differenti formazioni, in grado di proporre sguardi antitetici al jazz odierno, Robbins con il Transatlantic Quartet sviscera una musica carica di ricchezza armonica, ritmicamente leggera e tonica, brillante per qualità solistica, bene espressa in questa registrazione ...

Pete Robbins Transatlantic Quartet: Live In Basel

Read "Live In Basel" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Like most modern jazz players, alto saxophonist Pete Robbins works in multiple bands, playing varying styles and disciplines of this thing called jazz. Sounds reasonable, yes? But, thirty years ago this wasn't possible. Musicians, listeners, and jazz critics (let's not leave them out) had to take sides, choose categories and labels to classify and compartmentalize their ...

Pete Robbins: siLENT Z Live

Read "siLENT Z Live" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

L'inizio di siLENT Z Live è ingannevole. Perché sembra di essere catapultati in un ascensore di un albergo di gran classe con sottofondo musicale anch'esso di gran classe, un easy listening d'alto bordo, soulful, groovy, con armonizzazioni delicate e il sax protagonista languido e sornione. Poi al minuto uno e trenta qualche dubbio comincia ad insinuarsi nella mente dell'ascoltatore: ...

Pete Robbins: siLENT Z Live

Read "siLENT Z Live" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Since his 2002 debut, Centric (Telepathy Records), saxophonist Pete Robbins has charted a centrifugal trajectory, moving outward from traditional boundaries. His previous releases--Waits & Measures (Playscape, 2006) and Do The Laugh Hate Shimmy (Fresh Sound New Talent, 2008)--incorporated elements of jazz, rock and electronics with thought-provoking writing and improvisation. Incessantly stirring the creative juices in any ...

siLENT Z: siLENTZ

Read "siLENTZ" reviewed by Elliott Simon

Downstairs at the Cornelia Street Café in the Village is one of the more intimate places to see live jazz in the city. The program there is intentionally eclectic and siLENT Z Live, from altoist Pete Robbins, captures his angular group in those comfortable environs.

All other things being equal, the make or break ...
