Aki Takase: Cherry ‎– Sakura

Read "Cherry ‎– Sakura" reviewed by John Sharpe

Twenty three years after their first studio date Blue Monk (Enja, 1993), Japanese pianist Aki Takase and American saxophonist David Murray reunite in Switzerland. There has been one live recording since, Valencia (Sound Hills, 1997), but the question remains what took them so long? The saxophone/piano axis has been a favored format for both. Murray's companions ...

I Am Three: Mingus, Mingus, Mingus

Read "Mingus, Mingus, Mingus" reviewed by Troy Dostert

In addition to her many other projects, German alto saxophonist Silke Eberhard has made her mark by delving into the jazz tradition via her own distinctive, forward-looking sound. She collaborated with pianist Aki Takase in 2007 on Ornette Coleman's compositions (Ornette Coleman Anthology, Intakt), and she's done some fantastic work with her larger ensemble Potsa Lotsa ...

Insalata d'ance dal duo al quartetto: Gebhard Ullmann e dintorni

Read "Insalata d'ance dal duo al quartetto: Gebhard Ullmann e dintorni" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

La partenza di questa nostra odierna circumnavigazione, che di primo acchito potrà anche apparire stravagante ma le cui motivazioni confidiamo appariranno poi piuttosto chiare, ha un nome e un cognome: Gebhard Ullmann, notevole sassofonista e clarinettista tedesco di cui ci occupiamo sempre volentieri. Nella fattispecie, lo troviamo coinvolto in tre recenti album (in un caso come ...

Read "Work" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Work is a fully realized solo recording by German pianist Owe Oberg. He makes a strong case, in the six tracks/eight compositions, for his overflowing abundance of skill and resourcefulness. Recorded in 2008, this disc comes to light (why the wait?) now, with the release of Turns (Leo, 2016) with Silke Eberhard and another solo record ...

Facendo finta che questo sia il migliore dei mondi possibili e che il sole dell'avvenire splenda alto sopra l'orizzonte, ma ...

Read "I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Helga Plankensteiner" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

01. Dave Douglas & Uri Caine -Present Joys (Greenleaf Music -2014).
Da anni seguo la musica di Douglas e Caine; per me due straordinari musicisti e compositori. In questo disco esplorano le radici della musica americana. Un disco molto interessante e di una semplicità avvincente.

02. Charles Mingus -Blues & Roots (Atlantic ...
