One of the foremost representatives of an exciting younger generation of British musicians, his talents are on display not only on his own projects, like Uproot (Intakt, 2018), but with growing circle of ...

Peter Evans / Sam Pluta: Two Live Sets

Read "Two Live Sets" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The most extraordinary music ever presented has elicited the same time-honored “what the f@#k was that?" response. From Elvis (both Presley and Costello) to Grandmaster Flash, Igor Stravinsky, and Charlie Parker, the “shock of the new'" (to borrow a phrase from art critic Robert Hughes) adjusts listeners' criteria for judging a composition or performance, and often ...

Il meglio del 2017 secondo Vincenzo Roggero

Read "Il meglio del 2017 secondo Vincenzo  Roggero" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Tempo di consuntivi e di classifiche. Piuttosto complicato, decisamente parziale ma comunque divertente estrarre dal cilindro del 2017 dodici titoli rappresentativi. Così tra conferme che profumano di classicità -Craig Taborn, Steve Coleman, Nicole Mitchell, Rob Mazurek -, debutti clamorosi -Jaimie Branch -, ritorni tanto attesi -Arto Lindsay -, connubi sorprendenti -Iggy Pop con il trio di ...

Matt Piet & His Disorganization: Rummage Out

Read "Rummage Out" reviewed by John Sharpe

Perhaps it was pianist Matt Piet's appearances with esteemed reedman Dave Rempis on the co-operative Hit The Ground Running (Aerophonic, 2016) which first started to garner him attention, but he is certainly beginning to gain a reputation in his own right, a trend which can only be furthered by the release of Rummage Out.

Iluso Records: DIY from two dreamers

Read "Iluso Records: DIY from two dreamers" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Australian drummer Michael Caratti and Spanish-born New York-based guitarist Álvaro Domene founded the record label Iluso in 2013 to release their quartet recording Gran Masa.

Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz Sant'Anna Arresi 1-9.9.2018

Mettendo insieme una buona dose di ironia e di amara verità, il direttore artistico del festival Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz, Basilio Sulis, ama definire Sant'Anna Arresi come Periferia dell'Impero. Da trentatré anni, tuttavia, nella prima settimana di settembre questo lembo di Sardegna ...
