Read "Jerry Wexler e Aretha Franklin: quando la Soul Music conquistò il pianeta" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Nei giorni successivi il 16 agosto, tutti i media del mondo hanno commentato la morte di Aretha Franklin, la straordinaria soul singer e una delle massime voci del Novecento. Una scomparsa avvenuta in singolare coincidenza di quella di Jerry Wexler dieci anni prima. Il 15 agosto 2008 se n'era andato quel produttore dell'Atlantic Records che fece ...

Dionne, Tomasz and Buddy

Dionne, Tomasz and Buddy

This week in The Wall Street Journal, I interviewed Dionne Warwick for my “House Call" column in the Mansion section. There's nothing like picking up the ringing phone and hearing, “Mr. Myers? Dionne Warwick." Dionne's voice is unmistakable—like a long wooden match being drawn slowly and seductively across a flint. We talked about childhood and growing ...

Courtney Pine: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

Read "Courtney Pine: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants" reviewed by David Burke

Courtney Pine didn't pick up his beloved tenor saxophone for more than a decade, until an album exploring the black British experience demanded it. The multi-instrumentalist eschewed the horn on the likes of Europa, House of Legends and Song (The Ballad Book), his two-hander with pianist Zoe Rahman.

Dave Stryker: Strykin’ Ahead

Read "Strykin’ Ahead" reviewed by John Kelman

Having just turned sixty this year, it's still quite remarkable that Dave Stryker--a musician who, unfortunately and unfairly, fits into the category of “one of the best guitarists most have never heard"--has released well over thirty albums as a leader/co-leader (including his Stryker/Slagle Band, with saxophonist Steve Slagle, and Latin-informed Trio Mundo) in a little more ...

Videos: Back Women Cross Over

African-American women came into their own in the early 1960s as solo pop singers. Long pegged as jazz or R&B recording artists in the '50s or members of girl groups in the early '60s, African-American women began to cross over to the pop charts thanks largely to exposure on major record labels, runs at supper clubs ...

Beat Funktion: Olympus

Read "Olympus" reviewed by Geannine Reid

The seventies brought many things: bell-bottoms, Lee Majors, Farrah Fawcett, Disco, Nixon and Carter, The Godfather, the Ramones; Billie Jean King and Phyllis Schlafly to NOW and the ERA; from the Energy Crisis to Roe v. Wade. The Seventies is an incisively provocative and commonly misunderstood era. Is it an eminently forgettable period in our American ...

Rigmor Gustafsson: When You Make Me Smile

Read "When You Make Me Smile" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il primo aggettivo che viene in mente ascoltando il nuovo disco di Rigmor Gustafsson è “seducente."
Tredici brani, scritti quasi tutti dalla cantante svedese, che si sviluppano secondo i modelli del jazz vocale anni cinquanta/sessanta: un paio di blues, molte ballad, una bossa nova, qualche episodio soul, un classico del pop. In Italia è ...
