Moers Festival 2018

Read "Moers Festival 2018" reviewed by Martin Longley

Moers Festival
Moers, Germany
May 18-21, 2018

The long-established Moers Festival has undergone several changes in recent years. Its distinctive circus top tent was retired in 2013, making way for a custom-designed Halle to house most of the main concerts. Then, two years ago, the festival director and programmer switched ...

Doek Festival 2018 - This Is Our Music Live at BIMHUIS Amsterdam

Read "Doek Festival 2018 - This Is Our Music Live at BIMHUIS Amsterdam" reviewed by BIMHUIS

"This Is Our Music": many sides of the flourishing Amsterdam improv scene were revealed at the 2018 Doek Festival, with well-known musicians and international guests. This event signalled the return of the Amsterdam-based collective Doek to its roots: personal projects by its individual core members. The result is a richly varied program including two nights at ...

Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet

Read "Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Si aggiungono due nuovi lavori al sostanzioso catalogo Ramboy, l'etichetta autogestita dal sassofonista e clarinettista Michael Moore, fondata nel 1991, che documenta l'attività ampia e multiforme del musicista. La conoscenza di Moore è forse maggiormente legata alla sua presenza nel Clusone Trio, formazione nata nel 1988 con Ernst Reijseger al violoncello e Han Bennink alla batteria ...

Onno Govaert / Marcelo dos Reis / Luís Vicente / Kristján Martinsson: In Layers

Read "In Layers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You might assume the recording In Layers is another vehicle in Luís Vicente's meteoric rise to the top of improvisational music. If you guess this you are both wrong and somewhat right. While the Portuguese trumpeter has distinguished himself in the Twenty One 4Tet with John Dikeman and Wilbert De Joode, in Chamber 4, Fail Better!, ...

Twenty One 4tet: Live At Zaal 100

Read "Live At Zaal 100" reviewed by John Sharpe

The moniker Twenty One 4tet represents a summit of cosmopolitan international improvisers gathering in Amsterdam . On the face of it there's not a lot of connection between peripatetic American saxophonist John Dikeman's Ayler-inspired tirades and Portuguese trumpeter Luis Vicente's thoughtful chamber explorations, but the outcome suggests much more of a meeting of minds than might ...

Achim Kaufmann, Frank Gratkowski, Wilbert de Joode: Oblengths

Read "Oblengths" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

"L'improvvisazione collettiva è una disciplina che richiede buone orecchie, tempo di reazione immediato e abbondanti qualità musicali." Riportiamo volentieri le parole usate da Kevin Whitehead nel breve saggio che accompagna questo CD, per la loro eloquente intensità. Aggiungiamo che l'ascolto dell'improvvisazione collettiva si avvicina a tale disciplina: prevede buone orecchie, disposizione ad entrare senza timore in ...

Twenty One 4Tet: Live At Zaal 100

Read "Live At Zaal 100" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I'm assuming that the Twenty One 4Tet recording Live At Zaal was conceived as a one-off deal, with Portuguese trumpeter Luís Vicente visiting Amsterdam-based players John Dikeman, Wilbert De Joode and Onno Govaert. This concert, from September 2015, finds Vicente combining his impressive craftsmanship with three like-minded players.

Then again, it might be just ...

Ab Baars Trio: Slate Blue

Read "Slate Blue" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There used to be something about the Dutch jazz scene that made it stand out from American jazz, British jazz, and well, other European happenings. The “New Dutch Swing," to borrow the title from Kevin Whitehead's 1998 book, comprised an irreverent brand of music making, with little regard to tradition. Dutch players leaned heavily on Dada ...

Ab Baars Trio: Slate Blue

Read "Slate Blue" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Nelle sue recentissime risposte al “Questionario di Proust", Ab Baars affermava che il tratto per lui caratteristico della propria musica sia l'essere “allegramente ostinata." L'ascolto di questo Slate Blue, ultimo lavoro del suo trio con Wilbert De Joode e Martin Van Duynhoven dà una buona esemplificazione di tale definizione: nella sua ostinata complessità, infatti, la musica ...
