Read "Live at Smalls" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La vicenda del pianista Johnny O'Neal ricorda quella dei molti jazzmen usciti repentinamente di scena e in qualche caso riscoperti in età avanzata. Il suo caso non ha avuto la risonanza che ebbe il ritorno di Henry Grimes un decennio fa ma ha catalizzato comunque l'attenzione degli appassionati. Gran parte del merito va a ...

Bruce Barth Trio: Live at Smalls

Read "Live at Smalls" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Alla guida di un trio compatto ed assortito, Barth firma un pregevole disco nel segno dello swing.

A live recording from an intimate venue--in this case, the well-respected Greenwich Village club, Smalls--is like comfort food.. Live at Smalls, from guitarist Peter Bernstein, doesn't disappoint, starting off with a blues to welcome everyone in, with solid solo turns from all members of the quartet, also including pianist Richard Wyands, bassist John Webber and drummer ...


Jazz Underground: Live at Smalls
