Preminger, rather than diving into a collection of Lampert tunes, takes on a single forty-nine minute magnum opus piece that zigzags back and forth between structure and openness, with an all-star septet that ...

Jason Palmer: Rhyme And Reason

Read "Rhyme And Reason" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Trombettista rigoroso e dalla tecnica scintillante, tra i migliori della sua generazione, Jason Palmer non gode della popolarità che merita. Una causa può essere la collocazione appartata di insegnante al Berklee College of Music e al New England Conservatory.

Noah Preminger Rob Garcia Dead Composers Club: Chopin Project

Read "Chopin Project" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Quartetto a doppia firma, questo “club dei compositori morti," con Noah Preminger che ribadisce la sua predilezione per l'organico a quattro, ma agisce qui con una chitarra al posto della tromba (Jason Palmer), confermando peraltro al contrabbasso Kim Cass.
