Mike Reed: Flesh & Bone

Read "Flesh & Bone" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Pur essendo basata su un'esperienza drammatica del 2009, che vide il quartetto di Mike Reed a problematico e pericoloso contatto con una manifestazione neonazista nella Repubblica Ceca, la musica contenuta in questo Flesh & Bone mantiene le caratteristiche di esuberanza ottimista ed estroversione che distinguono la produzione del batterista, in primo luogo quella pluriennale di People, ...

Tyshawn Sorey: Verisimilitude

Read "Verisimilitude" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il tocco ricco di sottili contrasti dinamici che Tyshawn Sorey mette in risalto alla batteria si avvicina per ampiezza espressiva a quello delle dita su un pianoforte: dalla pennellata acquosa al colpo ovattato, dall'urto leggero alla cupa, vigorosa stoccata. Sempre restando nell'ambito di una gamma elastica, mobile, rilassata. Una qualità che, unita alla plastica intelligenza musicale, ...

Preserving the Cradle of Jazz: The New Orleans Jazz Museum

Read "Preserving the Cradle of Jazz: The New Orleans Jazz Museum" reviewed by Karl Ackermann
