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 ...

Henry Kaiser: Friends & Heroes: Guitar Duets

Read "Friends & Heroes: Guitar Duets" reviewed by Roger Farbey

There a real Smörgåsbord of pieces on Henry Kaiser's Friends & Heroes: Guitar Duets. They are stylistically varied improvisational vignettes ranging from the eccentric “Three Languages" with Fred Frith to the heavy electric blues of “A Mighty Fire" with Knut Reiersrud. There's also prog(-ish) rock on “Harmony Jam" with Nels Cline and there's a kind of ...

Tania Chen, Henry Kaiser, Wadada Leo Smith, William Winant: Ocean of Storms

Read "Ocean of Storms" reviewed by Troy Dostert

In between stints as a videographer of below-ice underwater regions in Antarctica, guitarist Henry Kaiser maintains a remarkably busy agenda as an improvising musician. Here he's joined by Wadada Leo Smith, an occasional partner going back to their mutual connection with Eugene Chadbourne in the 1970s and later collaboration on their Yo Miles! album from 1998. ...

Alla vigilia del ventennale dalla sua costituzione, il duo composto da Carlo Actis Dato ed Enzo Rocco pubblica il suo quarto album, inciso dal vivo lo scorso 6 febbraio in quel di Castelleone, a una decina di chilometri da Crema, dove Rocco è nato cinquantatré anni fa.

Big Ears Festival 2016

Read "Big Ears Festival 2016" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Big Ears Festival
Knoxville, TN
March 31-April 2, 2016

Since its beginning in 2009, the Big Ears Festival has always been willfully, unapologetically eclectic. Their own self-description is “a dynamic, interactive experience that explores connections between musicians and artists, crossing all musical genres while interfacing with film, performance and the visual arts." ...

Andrew Drury: Content Provider

Read "Content Provider" reviewed by Dave Wayne

On the wittily-titled Content Provider, Seattle-born, NYC- based drummer and composer Andrew Drury leads a remarkable band consisting of saxophonists Briggan Krauss (best-known for his work with Sex Mob) and Ingrid Laubrock, and gonzo electric guitarist Brandon Seabrook. Despite lacking a bassist (Seabrook provides some bass- line like figures here and there) it's a small band ...

konstruKt and Joe McPhee: Babylon: The First Meeting of Istanbul

Read "Babylon: The First Meeting of Istanbul" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Taken at face value, konstruKt's catchphrase, “Free Jazz from Turkey," seems a tad pedestrian. But, if one considers Turkey's place in the world-literally the crossing point between Asia and Europe-its crazy-quilt ethnic diversity, and its continued religious and political unrest, it's a fitting metaphor. Oddly, most of the band's recorded output features invited guest artists from ...

Nigel Coombes, Steve Beresford: White String's Attached (improvised violin and piano duets and a violin solo)

Read "White String's Attached (improvised violin and piano duets and a violin solo)" reviewed by Vic Albani

Con perfetto humour britannico Nigel Coombes, violinista inglese attivo per un buon ventennio dai '70 ai '90 scrisse, nelle note di copertina di questo disco apparso nel 1979, che Beethoven stesso realizzò da solo che pianoforte e violino “suonassero davvero orribilmente insieme." “Strumenti che fondamentalmente si odiano l'un altro e... che fosse ora di finirla di ...

Tatsuya Nakatani, Shane Perlowin: Anatomy of a Moment

Read "Anatomy of a Moment" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un'improvvisazione fortemente strutturata, di carattere non necessariamente jazzistico (semmai, per riferimenti linguistici, fra il country-blues e, più marginalmente, il contemporaneo) contrassegna quest'ottimo album del duo composto dal chitarrista di Asheville (North Carolina) Shane Perlowin e dal percussionista- rumorista giapponese (di Osaka, ma ormai di stanza in Pennsylvania) Tatsuya Nakatani, già attivo, fra gli altri, accanto a ...
