Read "Live In Tel Aviv" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Un altro tassello si aggiunge alla già corposa discografia del sassofonista tedesco Peter Brötzmann, il terzo insieme a questo trio con il trombone di Steve Swell e la batteria di Paal Nilssen-Love.

Frode Gjerstad: Bop Stop

Read "Bop Stop" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

A cavallo tra gli anni Settanta e Ottanta, quando nella scena jazz norvegese la presenza dell'etichetta germanica Ecm stimolava e indirizzava le scelte di tanti musicisti, il sassofonista Frode Gjerstad si volgeva a un altro panorama, cercando il contatto con le odissee procellose dell'improvvisazione storica europea, volgendosi soprattutto all'area britannica.
