Bruno Heinen Sextet: Tierkreis

Read "Tierkreis" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

British pianist Bruno Heinen studied classical music at the Royal College of Music, and jazz with fellow countryman and renowned jazz pianist John Taylor. He comes from both sides of the fence so to speak, which is an aspect that translates rather well on these pieces composed by pioneering and influential classical composer Karlheinz Stockhausen. Heinen's ...

In a time of financial crisis in the world in general and in the music business in particular, the natural thing to do would be to cut down the number of releases and concentrate on safe and palatable productions that cater to a major audience with a predefined taste.

Bruno Heinen Sextet: Tierkreis

Read "Tierkreis" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Dialogues Trio with Julian Siegel: Twinkle Twinkle

Read "Twinkle Twinkle" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Non fatevi ingannare dal brano iniziale, un valzerino alla Bill Evans, che fa pensare all'ennesimo tentativo, qui peraltro piuttosto ben riuscito, di portare acqua fresca al mulino musicale lasciato in eredità dal grande pianista di Plainfield. Perché Twinkle Twinkle è disco che si muove in diverse direzioni, attinge a varie fonti, è camaleontico nello sviluppo, con la sorpresa dietro l'angolo ...

Dialogues Trio with Julian Siegel: Twinkle Twinkle

Read "Twinkle Twinkle" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

The UK-based Dialogues Trio was formed in 2005 and is led by pianist Bruno Heinen, who sports an insightful compositional pen here on the band's debut, Twinkle Twinkle. The musicians often radiate a workingman's type process, where no dillydallying or inflated soloing escapades rule the roost. Featuring reedman Julian Siegel, lending his wares on select tracks, ...
