Paula Shocron: Los Vínculos

Read "Los Vínculos" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

In a sense, every musician is in a dialog with his or her own past, reshaping lessons that have been learned long ago in a quest for a new expression. However, it is very rare to encounter a dialog that is as explicit as the one that takes place on Argentinian pianist Paula Shocron's solo record ...

Paula Shocron, Germán Lamonega, Pablo Diaz: Tensegridad

Read "Tensegridad" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Una pianista di Rosario, un bassista e un batterista dell'area di Buenos Aires, età media qualche anno sopra i trenta, compongono uno dei trii pianistici più eccitanti che ci sia capitato di ascoltare da un po' di tempo in qua. La formula, si sa, è stereotipata, tipizzata, come nessun'altra, per cui se il vento che attraversa ...

Paula Shocron: Paths to a New Sound

Read "Paula Shocron: Paths to a New Sound" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

When Werner X. Uehlinger, the founder of Hat Hut Records, was asked about a statement on why he liked Argentinian pianist Paula Shocron's music, the answer was clear, short and succinct: “The quality of surprise."

Paula Shocron / Germán Lamonega / Pablo Diaz: Tensegridad

Read "Tensegridad" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The cover image for Tensegridad, the second album from the Argentinian SLD Trio, looks like a dolmen and it fits the music that both feels ancient and modern. While some types of avant-garde music seek to re-invent the language of music to the point of total estrangement, the strength of the SLD Trio lies in its ...

Matthew Shipp Trio: Piano Song

Read "Piano Song" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Depending on your perspective, tradition can both be a blessing and a burden. Especially in jazz, it is hard to say something new and this is true as well when it comes to the noble art of the piano trio. Thelonious Monk has been there, Bill Evans has been there and Cecil Taylor has been there--just ...

NendoDango Records: Reinventing Tradition

Read "NendoDango Records: Reinventing Tradition" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Argentinian jazz is in a very good state. Young musicians are gathering in collectives, trying to spread the word. They primarily use platforms such as bandcamp to release their music digitally, although physical formats are also occasionally available. Kuai Music is one of the major new players on the field, but new labels arrive all the ...

Miguel Crozzoli / Pablo Díaz: Tierra

Read "Tierra" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

There is a poem by the Swedish poet Gunnar Ekelöf (1907-1968) called “Den svarte bilden" (The black image) in which he tells about an icon whose image is kissed away. It is a spiritual act of love where the image of representation is transgressed.

Interestingly, Ekelöf's poem could be an illustration of what ...
