Jazz em Agosto 2019

Read "Jazz em Agosto 2019" reviewed by Stefano Merighi


Jazz em agosto
Lisbona
1-4.8.2019

Resistenza e narrazioni.

Questo in sintesi il filo conduttore dell'edizione 2019 di Jazz em Agosto, in corso di svolgimento come sempre presso la fondazione Gulbenkian a Lisbona. Un'edizione “militante," dunque, sebbene non così originale come in altre occasioni, vista la ripresa di ...

Rodrigo Pinheiro/Wschod: Wschod

Read "Wschod" reviewed by Don Phipps

Chamber jazz has provided an intriguing combination of abstract jazz and modern-classical experimentation, and Clean Feed should be applauded for giving the world a library of music by artists in this mold. Case in point, pianist Rodrigo Pinheiro's trio Wschod, which says that it strives to go beyond established norms. If by this, Pinhiero and company ...

Lisbon Freedom Unit: Praise Of Our Folly

Read "Praise Of Our Folly" reviewed by John Sharpe

History has repeatedly demonstrated that it may be foolish to bring together large numbers of musicians without any form of roadmap. Those who have set out the slender case for the opposing view include the Globe Unity Orchestra and Peter Brötzmann's Chicago Tentet, but not many more. To that number should now be added the Lisbon ...

Per Gärdin/Pedro Lopes/Rodrigo Pinheiro: History Of The Lisbon Chaplaincy

Read "History Of The Lisbon Chaplaincy" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's interesting just how much place influences a recording. Was the session captured in a hermetically sealed studio or a noisy jazz club? Is the sound engineered or merely captured? And how does the architecture of the recording space effect the sound? Sound experimentalist Pauline Oliveros often recorded in an empty water cistern, timing notes against ...

RED Trio & John Butcher: Summer Skyshift

Read "Summer Skyshift" reviewed by John Sharpe

It was the release of Empire (No Business, 2011) that constituted the point at which many people first began to pay attention to the Portuguese Red Trio. That collaboration with English saxophonist John Butcher featured on several year end lists. It paved the way for a series of further alliances, documented on disc with trumpeter Nate ...

Per Gärdin/Rodrigo Pinheiro/Marco Franco/Travassos: Oblique Mirrors

Read "Oblique Mirrors" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Listening to the free improvisation recording, Oblique Mirrors brings to mind a most memorable line from the film The Usual Suspects, where Kevin Spacey as Roger “Verbal" Kint says, “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone."

Maybe its the evanescent nature ...

The city of Wroclaw by the Odra River in the southwest of Poland has occupied a pre-eminent position throughout its long, turbulent history, and it still does. Wroclaw's Jazztopad festival is a relatively young one. This year celebrated had ...
