Read "Il moto multiplo di Craig Taborn" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Prima di leggerne le parole precise ed esaurienti nell'intervista, è il caso di ricordare alcune cose di Craig Taborn, pianista quarantasettenne che si colloca ai massimi livelli della scena contemporanea.

In addition to his eighty-plus appearances as a sideman, pianist Craig Taborn has during the last six years found a happy home for his own music on the ECM label, where he's been able to establish a formidable body of work in just a few recordings.

Read "It's Hard" reviewed by Luca Canini

Bellino. Con un paio di cose decisamente riuscite.

Read "Il meglio del 2016 secondo Vincenzo Roggero" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Questi i migliori dischi dell'anno? Risposta complicata perché nonostante la massa imponente di musica, fruibile in tutte le forme e in tutti modi possibili, si ha la sensazione che manchi qualcosa (o molto), che siano precluse realtà musicali periferiche rispetto ai normali canali di distribuzione ma importanti dal punto di vista della testimonianza e della valenza ...

Autobahn: Of the Tree

Read "Of the Tree" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Not to be confused with the band of the same name from The Big Lebowski (or the similarly-named British indie- rock / emo band, for that matter) this Autobahn is a trio of jolly Canadians who play 21st Century jazz. Not “swinging" jazz in the traditional Blue Note sense, the music of this bass-free trio of ...
