Chris Pasin: Ornettiquette

Read "Ornettiquette" reviewed by Chris Mosey

It's amazing how quickly what was billed as the future of jazz became its past. In 1959 when saxophonist Ornette Coleman released his third album, he wanted to call it Focus On Sanity.

Chris Pasin: Detour Ahead

Read "Detour Ahead" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Detour Ahead segna il ritorno sulle scene, e paradossalmente anche l'esordio come leader, di Chris Pasin, trombettista di Chicago che diversi anni fa preferì allontanarsi dalla carriera jazzistica per dedicarsi completamente alla famiglia. Scelta lodevole, anche se (vista dalla parte dell'ascoltatore) si è trattato di un peccato, dal momento che questa registrazione è un'autentica delizia. Si tratta di una ...
