Moppa Elliott: Jazz Band/Rock Band/Dance Band

Read "Jazz Band/Rock Band/Dance Band" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Sam Kulik: Escape from Society

Read "Escape from Society" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

In una ovvia visione veramente “Americo centrica" i vari recensori dell'opera ultima del signor Sam Kulik (visionario trombonista cresciuto nella piccola cittadina di Worthington nel moderno Massachusetts occidentale) hanno dovuto necessariamente collegare i fili delle influenze del nostro a quelle del dissacratore per eccellenza, sua maestà Frank Zappa.
