La nicchia del canto jazz maschile

Read "La nicchia del canto jazz maschile" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

A eccezione di pochi nomi--in particolare Kurt Elling, Gregory Porter, Bobby McFerrin e il veterano Tony Bennett--il canto jazz maschile è nettamente sottoesposto rispetto a quello femminile.

Michael Blake: Tiddy Boom

Read "Tiddy Boom" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Michael Blake cita espressamente tre sassofonisti nelle rarefatte note di copertina di questo album: Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young e Ross Taggart.
