Uri Caine: gli ultimi progetti

Read "Uri Caine: gli ultimi progetti" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Gli ultimi due album di Uri Caine confermano la sua statura di musicista poliedrico e inclassificabile. Il pianista di Filadelfia spazia da sempre tra scuole e generi con disincanto e spirito critico ed è uno dei rari compositori e interpreti d'oggi che esprime costante originalità.
In questi due dischi, autoprodotti, non abbiamo sorprese stilistiche, ...
