Read "Public Access / Headline / Crossings" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been a great couple of years for Steve Khan fans who are (relatively) new to the guitarist's work, especially his early releases, thanks to UK-based BGO Records.

Piani di Battaglia

Read "Piani di Battaglia" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un elemento che salta all'occhio, in Stefano Battaglia, è la discrezione, come artista e come uomo. Uno dei tanti modi in cui lo rivela è il grande rispetto che ha per la musica altrui.

Nome notissimo nella scena americana, cantante, pianista, compositore e fine conoscitore della musica in toto (evitiamo di utilizzare l'etichetta 'jazz' memori anche del non troppo lontano album in tributo a Bob Dylan), con Don't Cry for no Hipster Sidran torna ...
