Jay Anderson: Deepscape

Read "Deepscape" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Bassist Jay Anderson has been a sideman for many musicians including Michael Brecker, Lee Konitz, Kenny Wheeler and Maria Schneider, but he hasn't led a recording session since the 90s.' He makes up for lost time here with a varied set of music that sometimes follows standard jazz orthodoxy and sometimes goes its own fascinating way. ...

Torhild Ostad / Carsten Dahl: Jeg roper til deg

Read "Jeg roper til deg" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Back in 1982, the Norwegian singer, Radka Toneff, released a very special duo album with the American pianist, Steve Dobrogosz, called Fairytales. Since then, the fate of the music has also become something of a fairytale, with the album being chosen as one of the best Norwegian albums of all time.

It seems ...

Glauco Venier si racconta con Miniatures

Read "Glauco Venier si racconta con Miniatures" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Miniatures è un piano solo. Ma è anche qualcosa di più, per il modo in cui sono state inserite nel tessuto narrativo le sculture sonore azionate dallo stesso Glauco Venier e per come sono saldate al pensiero che sorregge la musica. La musica respira anche attraverso il dialogo tra pianoforte e sculture sonore, che tracciano una ...

Ferenc Snetberger: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Era solo questione di tempo prima che il chitarrista ungherese Ferenc Snetberger approdasse ai lidi ECM. Molte delle sue passate produzioni discografiche non avrebbero affatto sfigurato nel catalogo dell'etichetta bavarese, che finalmente lo può annoverare tra i suoi artisti con la pubblicazione di questo In Concert, registrazione di una sua esibizione in solo a Budapest nel ...

Blue Note On Blu-Ray

Read "Blue Note On Blu-Ray" reviewed by Mark Werlin

Jazz music is best appreciated with “big ears" and an open mind. Just as exposure to new music casts older, familiar works in a different light, newer formats can expand a listener's perspective on the strengths and limitations of the original recordings.

SACDs, Blu-Ray discs and hi-res downloads accurately represent the affective details of ...

Claudio Sanna: Ammentos

Read "Ammentos" reviewed by Mark Corroto

A new voice worthy of your consideration is Sardinian pianist Claudio Sanna. His debut Ammentos, or “Memories,' finds a fully developed mature sound that is formed by classical music, but as with many jazz artists, open to other musics.

Classically trained artists like Sanna, Keith Jarrett and Herbie Hancock before him, can also be ...

Anja Lechner / François Couturier: Moderato cantabile

Read "Moderato cantabile" reviewed by John Kelman

ECM Records has long divided its discography in two: the regular series, representing music of a more improvisational bent; and its New Series, featuring largely classical music ranging from the contemporary to the archaic, but more truly defined in its through-composed nature. Still, the line between the two has, however, often been a porous one, where ...
