Colin Edwin & Lorenzo Feliciati: Twinscapes Vol. 2: A Modern Approach To The Dancefloor

Read "Twinscapes Vol. 2: A Modern Approach To The Dancefloor" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The cover art of Twinscapes Vol. 2: A Modern Approach To The Dancefloor features what looks like a cyborg, illuminated by hot electricity on the upper portion of its visage, a face otherwise surrounded by lifeless black. The image is fitting. The album's music--from bassists Colin Edwin and Lorenzo Feliciati--celebrates the dancefloor music of the '80s. ...

Cuong Vu 4Tet: Change In The Air

Read "Change In The Air" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Seattle-based trumpeter Cuong Vu continues his collaboration with guitarist Bill Frisell that began with It's Mostly Residual (AUAND, 2006). His previous 4Tet release, Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs (RareNoise Records, 2017), was also made by the same personnel. But this time, instead of interpretations of an outside composer, every group member contributes compositionally, including Vu, ...

Cuong Vu 4Tet: Change In The Air

Read "Change In The Air" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Trumpeter Cuong Vu introduced this particular 4tet in 2017, with Ballet: The Music of Michael Gibbs (RareNoiseRecords). An all star affair that included guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Luke Bergman and drummer Ted Poor, it seemed to signal something of a gentler Cuong Vu, with a music that had a spaciousness, patience and ruminative quality that didn't ...

Joshua Trinidad: In November

Read "In November" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Settimo album a nome del trentaquattrenne trombettista di origine messicana (in realtà è nato e vive a Denver) Joshua Trinidad, inciso in Norvegia nel novembre 2015 con musicisti appunto norvegesi (che peraltro collaborano con lui da tempo). Una certa sonorità nordica, controllata, parsimoniosa, evocativa, sta in effetti alla base del disco, che tuttavia è contrassegnato da ...

Worldservice Project: Serve

Read "Serve" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

È un quintetto ma ha il tiro di una big band (quanto meno di una middle band, ottetto e dintorni); rivela un attento ascolto della musica di Frank Zappa, che ne risulta mani e piedi il referente più esplicito; non sfoggia particolari doti di originalità, stante quanto appena affermato, ma riesce ciò nonostante a colpire nel ...

The Jamie Saft Quartet: Blue Dream

Read "Blue Dream" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Se Solo a Genova ci aveva rivelato il lato sorprendentemente intimo e meditativo di Jamie Saft, Blue Dream espande sia a livello sonoro che di formazione quel mood e quella visione. Regalandoci così un album classico per struttura e concezione, sobrio nel rivisitare i canoni di un jazz in gran parte ancorato alla strada maestra, creativo ...

Jamie Saft Quartet: Blue Dream

Read "Blue Dream" reviewed by Doug Collette

His third fairly conventional release in a row, Blue Dream is Jamie Saft's second release of this year, followup of a sort to the splendid piano recital Solo a Genova (Rarenoise, 2018). Both titles appear subsequent to a diverse string of projects including Plymouth (Rarenoise, 2014), Red Hill (Rarenoise, 2014) and Serenity Knolls (Rarenoise, 2017), none ...

Since 2006 Schwalm has been a regular guest at Norway's Punktfestival, distinguishing himself as a live remixer. He has also developed a long- term partnership with Norwegian ...

Jamie Saft: Solo a Genova

Read "Solo a Genova" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Dando un'occhiata alla scaletta dei brani, qualche perplessità sulla messa a fuoco di un progetto che mette insieme Joni Mitchell e John Coltrane, ZZ Top e Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder e ... Charles Ives si affaccia spontanea. Ma se lo Steinway D-274 che sfrutta l'eccellente acustica dell' Auditorium Eugenio Montale di Genova è nelle sapienti mani ...

Jamie Saft Quartet: Blue Dream

Read "Blue Dream" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

If RareNoise Records has a characteristic sound as ECM Records has a characteristic sound, that sound is defined Jamie Saft. Whether it is the unholy ministry of Slobber Pup or the plaintive solo piano of his recent Solo A Genova (RareNoise, 2018), multi-instrumentalist Saft has brought Giacomo Bruzzo's and Eraldo Bernocchi's eclectic-electric British label front and ...
