After decades in the shadow of its American parent, British jazz is finally coming of age. A community of young, London-based musicians is forging a rebooted style which reflects both the Caribbean and African musical heritages of the majority of its vanguard players and also locally created musics such as grime and garage. Jazz was created ...

Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Per chi non se ne fosse accorto, stiamo vivendo un momento musicale straordinario, fatto di ricerca senza confini, ibridazioni linguistiche e condivisione di esperienze spesso agli antipodi--insomma diametralmente opposto al periodo storico, in cui l'ignoranza miope delle nuove destre vorrebbe tenerci divisi, ancorati ad un'idea identitaria ormai superata dalla storia.
Dal jazz più classico alle ...

Theon Cross: Fyah

Read "Fyah" reviewed by Chris May

Over the last two years years the disruptive slice of the London jazz scene has produced an abundance of four-going-on-five-star albums, but even among such company Fyah stands out. Performed by a tuba, tenor saxophone and drums trio, augmented on two tracks, it is a work of majestic proportions, the embodiment of the neoteric London sound. ...

Dakhla Brass: Murmur

Read "Murmur" reviewed by Chris May

It never really went away, but during the late 2010s there has been a measurable upsurge of interest in brassy, post-marching-band jazz in Britain. A high-carat jewel on the London scene over the last few years has been tuba player Theon Cross and his band Fyah. Cross also brings his dextrous bass line magic to several ...

One individual could not possibly keep up with its jazz and classical music festivals and everything else that's offered by İKSV. It brings ...
