Gerald Clayton Trio
Nighttown
Cleveland, Ohio
May 16, 2017

Much like the politics of today, everything seems to come in extremes. So much of what passes for modern jazz today veers too far to the left, often opting for the esoteric and anarchism merely for the sake of being different. As ...

Gerald Clayton: Tributary Tales

Read "Tributary Tales" reviewed by Niccolò Lucarelli

"Se devi chiedere cos'è il jazz, non otterrai mai la risposta." Parole di chi la sapeva lunga in materia, ovvero Louis Armstrong. Parole che, pur con la loro aura di paradosso, racchiudono una verità, stante l'affascinante capacità del jazz di inglobare una pluralità d'influenze, stati d'animo, colori, suoni, da renderne difficile un'esatta definizione.

The Dan Trudell Trio: Dan Trudell Plays the Piano

Read "Dan Trudell Plays the Piano" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

L'aver privilegiato a lungo l'Hammond B3 non ha indotto Dan Trudell ad abbandonare il pianoforte, strumento in cui s'è formato e diplomato alla North Texas State University. Trasferitosi a Chicago nel 1990 ha iniziato ad affiancare il ruolo di pianista a quello di organista formando un organico col batterista funk Clyde Stubblefield e iniziando un'apprezzata atività ...

Mette Juul: There Is a Song

Read "There Is a Song" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dopo aver debuttato nel 2010 nel ruolo della classica jazz singer (Coming in from the Dark, Cowbell Music), la danese Mette Juul ha iniziato a privilegiare le intime atmosfere della ballad d'autore, sul modello Joni Mitchell. Il cambiamento faceva capolino nel secondo disco (Moon on My Shoulder, Calibrated 2012), ancora ricco di intense versioni jazzistiche di ...

Kendrick Scott Oracle: We Are The Drum

Read "We Are The Drum" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

While drummer Kendrick Scott's namesake outfit--Kendrick Scott Oracle--has been around in some form since 2006, it's a band that's really come into its own in the last few years. With the arrival of Conviction (Concord Records, 2013), Scott made a major statement on a high-visibility label; jazz listeners and critics both took note. With We Are ...

The Dan Trudell Trio: Dan Trudell Plays The Piano

Read "Dan Trudell Plays The Piano" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The decline of the joyously swinging piano trio has been greatly exaggerated. It may be an endangered species, but it's still out there, roaming the countryside, appearing when you least expect it, and making the occasional trip into a studio.
