André Carvalho: The Garden Of Earthly Delights

Read "The Garden Of Earthly Delights" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

This third album from Portuguese bassist André Carvalho is a study in contrasts. Inspired by the work of artist Hieronymus Bosch—his style in general and, of course, the titular painting—Carvalho set about composing a long-form work reflecting the range and balance of character(s) endemic to the mysterious Dutch painter's creations. This stunning suite is the result. ...

Mural: Shishi's Wish

Read "Shishi's Wish" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Prende il nome dal suo disco d'esordio, questo trio nippo-tedesco-cileno nato a New York nel 2015. Giunto al secondo album, Mural conferma la prospettiva trasversale, spaziando da momenti di marcata concitazione elettrica --una sorta di fusion rivisitata evidente in «Giacomo!» e in «Geronimo» --ad altri acusticamente riflessivi, venati di atmosfere folk.

I tratti costanti ...

Aki Ishiguro, Peter Schwebs, Rodrigo Recabarren: Mural

Read "Mural" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Un trio giovane e multinazionale -nippo-americano il chitarrista, tedesco il contrabbassista, cileno il batterista -che s'incontra e registra a Brooklyn questo Mural, lavoro di impianto sostanzialmente classico per il tipo di formazione, ma impreziosito da alcune suggestioni e dalle qualità dei musicisti.

Gran parte delle composizioni sono di Aki Ishiguro -sei su dieci -e ...

Beekman: Vol. 2

Read "Vol. 2" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

A oltre un anno di distanza dall'album che segnò l'esordio del collettivo di musicisti, Beekman torna con un Vol. 2 che, nelle tracce di questo ultimo lavoro, prosegue sostanzialmente la linea di quella prima esperienza. Non è una nota di demerito, anzi. Nel jazz uno degli aggettivi più usati e abusati è “cosmopolita," per indicare musica ...

Niculin Janett Quartet (feat. Rich Perry): No Parking Any Time

Read "No Parking Any Time" reviewed by Matthew Aquiline

Zurich-based alto saxophonist and composer Niculin Janett, in the naming of his quartet's debut album, encapsulated the essence of his music with an otherwise vexatious phrase that regularly victimizes most city dwellers: No Parking Any Time. Although irritating for motorists, an ordinance prohibiting parking in terms of music, especially jazz, would seemingly stimulate perpetual movement and ...

Beekman: Vol. 02

Read "Vol. 02" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Beekman is a super-tight collective quartet whose members hail from three (count 'em) different continents. Pianist Yago Vazquez is from Spain, reedman Kyle Nasser is an American, and the entire rhythm section--bassist Pablo Menares and drummer Rodrigo Recabarren--hails from Chile. Their prosaically-titled sophomore album, Vol. 02, is more-or-less in the same brainy-but-chill modern jazz style as ...

Beautiful Round: Beautiful Round

Read "Beautiful Round" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Il chitarrista Akira Ishiguro, di origini giapponesi ma cresciuto nel Wisconsin, è il leader di un quartetto che esiste dal 2012 e che ha registrato questo CD nell'aprile dell'anno successivo. La formazione, che accanto alla chitarra presenta una ritmica piano-contrabbasso-batteria, esprime un jazz moderno piuttosto convenzionale, che ruota attorno alle composizioni di Ishiguro, melodiche ma dotate ...
