Rosario Bonaccorso Quartet: A New Home

Read "A New Home" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There is a trend in jazz today to abandon beauty for technical ability. Odd meter and eccentric changes replace sympathetic music making, favoring skills over art. Thank the heavens there are those who have never abandoned beauty. One such musician is bassist Rosario Bonaccorso. His quartet recording A New Home is an exercise in elegance and ...

Keith Tippett Octet: Nine Dances Of Patrick O’Gonogon

Read "Nine Dances Of Patrick O’Gonogon" reviewed by Duncan Heining

The Nine Dances of Patrick O'Gonogon is a solid gold delight. I have no idea, who Paddy O'Gonogon is or even if he exists outside the minds of Keith Tippett and Julie Tippett but I'd love to have a drink or eight with him. Seems like he knows how to have a good time.

Phil Mer, Andrea Lombardini: The Framers

Read "The Framers" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Lavoro coraggioso, originale e sorprendente questo The Framers, frutto della creatività di due musicisti che mettono eccellentemente a frutto la loro ampia (e forse anche un po' “pericolosa...") ecletticità: Phil Mer--batterista, ma anche laureato in storia dell'arte e attivo in ambito pop (è tra l'altro l'attuale batterista dei Pooh...)--e Andrea Lombardini, sperimentatore del basso elettrico, da ...
