Jazz on the Moon

Read "Jazz on the Moon" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

On 20 July 1969, while Herbie Mann was over the figurative moon, because his Memphis Underground was the best selling jazz album in the country, the man was landing on the actual moon (apologies for the gender insensitivity here but otherwise the pun won't work...). What a day! 50 years later we celebrate the ...

Andy Sheppard: Romaria

Read "Romaria" reviewed by Luca Casarotti

ECM rappresenta quasi per antonomasia un'estetica della sottrazione, fatta di tempi dilatati, atmosfere rarefatte e poche, a volte pochissime, note: solo le note necessarie, come vuole la massima di João Gilberto da cui prende il titolo l'autobiografia di Enrico Rava, un artista che non a caso ha legato il suo nome a quello dell'etichetta di Manfred ...

Andy Sheppard Quartet: Romaria

Read "Romaria" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Where so much music treats silence as an exception, Andy Sheppard's recordings find it serving more as the rule. He's never been one for weaving flashy speed runs or feeling pressure to fill space. Even when his sax lines speed up from time to time through Romaria, they serve the mood with tasteful restraint, smoothly evoking ...

Andy Sheppard Quartet: Surrounded By Sea

Read "Surrounded By Sea" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Si immaginino una pulsazione ritmica regolare, brani chiusi e strutturati in sezioni, armonie tensive e distensive che si alternano in base alle articolazioni delle frasi melodiche, improvvisazioni che seguono patterns e cliché consolidati del linguaggio e si avrebbe un format per certi versi omologante, avulso da ogni tentativo di ricerca creativa di uno stile originale.
