Django Bates / Frankfurt Radio Big Band: Saluting Sgt. Pepper

Read "Saluting Sgt. Pepper" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Django Bates stellar career has been far less celebrated than it deserves to be, at least on this, somewhat myopic, side of the Atlantic. Born in Kent, on the outskirts of London, he has achieved prominence as a multi-instrumentalist, band leader and composer. In the early part of his career he created Human Chain and the ...

Django Bates: The Study of Touch

Read "The Study of Touch" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Folletto imprevedibile e difficilmente etichettabile della scena creativa britannica -salta con disinvoltura da lavori orchestrali al piano solo, da composizioni per il teatro e per il cinema a commissioni di musica sinfonica, da collaborazioni con Tim Berne e Bill Bruford a quelle con George Russell e George Gruntz -Django Bates è stato elemento propulsivo fondamentale nella ...

Matt Mitchell, un pianoforte declinato al futuro

Read "Matt Mitchell, un pianoforte declinato al futuro" reviewed by Luca Canini

Se da un lato c'è Tim Berne che ti affida le chiavi del suo quartetto, e dall'altro Steve Coleman che al momento di mettere qualcuno davanti a una tastiera non esita a comporre il tuo numero, vuol dire che qualcosa di buono al pianoforte lo sai fare. Certo, poi serve anche altro per uscire definitivamente allo ...

Borderlands Trio: Asteroidea

Read "Asteroidea" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I'll venture a guess that the listing of the names on Borderlands Trio's cover is arranged in alphabetic order, Crump, Davis, then McPherson. That is because nothing in the performance reveals a leader, nor a dominant signature. For adventurous listeners, isn't that exactly what we want from our improvisors?

Let's stick with just Borderlands ...

Il festival Jazz & Wine of Peace di Cormòns, in provincia di Gorizia, è una delle rassegne nazionali di maggior successo, cresciuto negli ultimi anni a dismisura certo anche grazie all'unione degli spettacoli con il vino -Cormòns si trova nel Collio Friulano, ove si producono alcuni dei migliori bianchi d'Italia -ma in primo luogo in virtù ...

Django Bates: Beloved

Read "Beloved" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

With boundless humor and flexible grace, pianist Django Bates offers us The Study of Touch the perfect piano trio music for the significant other who absolutely hates piano trio music.

This is the first I have heard of Django Bates though he has been making shrewd music since 1979. He has played with a ...

Read "A dialogo con Roberto Ottaviano" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

E lo fa presentando un ennesimo lavoro di altissimo livello, altro ...
