A dialogo con Giancarlo Mazzù e Luciano Troja

Read "A dialogo con Giancarlo Mazzù e Luciano Troja" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Il chitarrista calabrese Giancarlo Mazzù e il pianista siciliano Luciano Troja formano ormai da molti anni una coppia artistica molto affiatata. Messisi in luce nell'interessante quartetto Mahanada, che realizzò tre album tra il 2004 e il 2008 (leggi la recensione di Mahanatta), i due hanno poi consolidato la loro intesa artistica pubblicando i due volumi di ...

Read "Luciano Troja e l'arte del duo" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Enrico Pieranunzi, Federico Casagrande: Double Circle

Read "Double Circle" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

L'incontro tra la chitarra acustica e il pianoforte è sempre molto affascinante, oltre a essere anche piuttosto raro (qui in Italia, vanno ricordati quelli di Giancarlo Mazzù con Luciano Troja). Il duetto documentato su questo CD ha la particolarità di essere l'incontro anche di due diverse generazioni di musicisti jazz italiani, visto che al piano siede ...


Blasie Siwula/Luciano Troja/John Murchison: Beneath the Ritual

Read "Beneath the Ritual" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The biggest slice of the free jazz stew is cooked up with--going back to the beginnings of alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman's artistry--a horn or two stirred in with bass and drums. The chording instrument--guitar or piano--is generally optional. But when a piano sits in, the potential for sweetening the sound bounces up big time. Consider Coleman's ...

Read "Three Shots from Siwula: Blaise Siwula & NoFrillsMusic" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The emergence of free jazz in the 1950s and 1960s pioneered a new way of thinking about music that not only affected the way music sounded, but also the way it was shared and distributed. In many ways, free jazz was a movement away from mainstream and mass-distribution and the rediscovery of music as art, but ...

Sono molti i pregi, musicali e più generalmente culturali, di questo accurato lavoro di Luciano Troja, pianista messinese classe 1963, che negli ultimi tempi si è messo in luce con la formazione dei Mahanada (clicca qui per leggere la recensione del CD Mannahatta) e nel duo con il chitarrista Giancarlo Mazzù (clicca qui per leggere la ...


Sammy Cahn, Vernon Duke, and Earl Zindars

Read "Sammy Cahn, Vernon Duke, and Earl Zindars" reviewed by Sean Dietrich

Standards are the language of jazz. Standards represent music that have withstood the ruthless test of time. Songs built by craftsman, instead of limericks scribbled by American idols adorned in sequins and leather chaps. Music that has been constructed to last, built with the brick and mortar of harmony and melody. And yet, too often, the ...
