Tower Jazz Composers Orch. & Daniel Bernardes

Read "Tower Jazz Composers Orch. & Daniel Bernardes" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Improvisation is the core of clarinetist Ben Goldberg's Good Day For Cloud Fishing, and not just the music. His fascination with poet Dean Young's work led to the creation of this album where the trio of Goldberg, Nels Cline and Ron Miles improvised upon a musical sketch that Goldberg wrote based upon one of Young's poems. ...

Ben Goldberg: Good Day For Cloud Fishing

Read "Good Day For Cloud Fishing" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Poetry and jazz, jazz and poetry, which came first? Ben Goldberg poses that same question with Good Day For Cloud Fishing. His answer to the philosophical 'chicken or the egg' riddle is well, both. Sure, Homer wrote the Iliad centuries before King Oliver put cornet to lips, but damn if there wasn't some gutbucket rhyming to ...

Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom: Glitter Wolf

Read "Glitter Wolf" reviewed by Jennifer DeMeritt

Some jazz musicians dare you to follow them to the rarefied realm of their imagination, where you might discover paradise, or you might get lost in a forest of abstraction. Allison Miller says, “Hey, let's take a ride!" then revs the engine and takes you on a grand tour of a carnival of sounds. A masterful ...

Kirk Knuffke, Ben Goldberg: Uncompahgre

Read "Uncompahgre" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

La firma congiunta apposta a tutti ...

Kirk Knuffke: Witness

Read "Witness" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Kirk Knuffke has brought his cornet skills to a lot of different music in his career. As a leader, he has recorded albums dedicated to the work of Erik Satie and Don Cherry and he's even covered an Ernest Tubb song. This album gives a greater picture of how wide his interests stretch as he delves ...

Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente

Read "Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Duck Baker è un chitarrista abbastanza difficile da inquadrare; mentre la tecnica che usa è rigorosamente fingerstyle, la musica che compone e interpreta spazia lungo tutta la storia del jazz, dai vecchi standard al modale, dal blues al bebop, dallo swing al free. I suoi interessi si estendono inoltre a tutta la American Music, che interpreta ...
