Evan Parker and Paul G. Smyth on Weekertoft

Read "Evan Parker and Paul G. Smyth on Weekertoft" reviewed by John Eyles

In 2016, English guitarist John Russell and Irish pianist Paul G. Smyth set up the independent Weekertoft label to release music they had been involved in, including recordings made at Russell's longstanding monthly Mopomoso concert series or annual Fete Quaqua festival. As the label reached its third anniversary, its catalogue was dominated by two large sets--the ...

John Butcher

Read "John Butcher" reviewed by John Eyles

In the Building a Jazz Library article on Evan Parker, it says that seasoned Parker followers would describe him as the finest improvising saxophonist of his generation. Curiously, many of those same people would use exactly that phrase about John Butcher. The simple explanation for this apparent contradiction is that we are talking about two generations; ...

Huw Warren: Global Music from a Local Perspective

Read "Huw Warren: Global Music from a Local Perspective" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Welsh pianist and composer, Huw Warren, has been an important voice on the British jazz scene for many years. With a seemingly endless appetite for music, Warren has both been delving into Brazilian music with singer Maria Pia de Vito and played ethereal folk-inspired jazz music with another singer, June Tabor, in the trio Quercus. He ...

PunktFestival 2017

Read "PunktFestival 2017" reviewed by Luca Vitali

Punkt Festival
Kristiansand, Norvegia
Varie sedi
31.8-2.9.2017

Come sempre Punkt è un festival fuori dall'ordinario e all'insegna dell'imprevisto e dell'imprevedibile. Una sorta di Industria 4.0 della musica: fuori dal “circolo" dei tour estivi, tipico dei festival jazz, e poco interessato a fotografare il passato e il presente, è invece molto attento ...

Evan Parker

Read "Evan Parker" reviewed by John Eyles

In his biography of Robert Wyatt, Different Every Time (Serpent's Tail, 2015), author Marcus O'Dair describes Evan Parker as “perhaps the finest British free-jazz saxophonist of his generation." The only words in that phrase that seasoned Parker followers might take issue with are “perhaps," “British" and “free-jazz," preferring just to describe him as the finest improvising ...

Read "Seaside" reviewed by John Eyles

Bearing catalogue number at100, Seaside marks another important milestone for Another Timbre--the one hundredth release on the label's main imprint, some nine years after its first releases.

Pauline Oliveros, Roscoe Mitchell, John Tilbury, Wadada Leo Smith: Nessuno

Read "Nessuno" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Non è Ulisse né una celebre canzone portata al successo da Mina: questa è semplicemente la riproposizione integrale di un concerto tenutosi l'8 maggio 2011 a Bologna nell'ambito della rassegna Angelica, in cui nessuno dei quattro performers occupava (almeno sulla carta) posizioni di preminenza.

In realtà quanto svoltosi quella sera di oltre cinque ...

John Butcher, Thomas Lehn, Matthew Shipp: Tangle

Read "Tangle" reviewed by John Eyles

Recorded at Café Oto in February 2014, on the first night of pianist Matthew Shipp's three-day residency at the venue, Tangle is the first recording of the trio of saxophonist John Butcher and synthesiser player Thomas Lehn with Shipp. (The YouTube clip, below, was filmed on the night in question.) Typically, there were previous links between ...

Keith Rowe and John Tilbury: Enough still not to know

Read "Enough still not to know" reviewed by John Eyles

It was back in late 2011 that the last collaboration between Keith Rowe and John Tilbury was issued, E.E. Tension and Circumstance (Potlatch, 2011), having been recorded live in Paris in December 2010. As that was their second duo recording, following the double CD Duos for Doris (Erstwhile, 2003), and they had not played together since ...

Wadada Leo Smith, fenomenologia di un maestro

Read "Wadada Leo Smith, fenomenologia di un maestro" reviewed by Luca Canini

Non tutti i maestri sono uguali. C'è chi sceglie di farsi da parte, riducendo al minimo gli sconfinamenti, gli azzardi, i contatti con situazioni potenzialmente rischiose. E c'è chi invece si ostina a cercare, a condividere; tenendo fede a quella che del jazz è la suprema vocazione: la fisiologica tendenza a includere, in un continuo sovrapporsi ...
