Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2017

Read "Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2017" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Fotografare lo stato dell'arte nell'ambito del jazz e delle musiche limitrofe è compito che il festival di Saalfelden svolge assai bene ormai da decenni. Non solo la rassegna austriaca non rinuncia ad alcuna delle sue prerogative estetiche (apertura massima rispetto agli stili contemporanei, volontà di anticipare tendenze, capacità di realizzare prime esecuzioni mondiali), ma anzi, trova ...

Read "In Cahoots" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Inciso in studio a Brooklyn nel giugno 2014, questo ragguardevole album fa registrare di fatto l'inserimento di Ned Rothenberg e dei suoi fiati nel rodatissimo duo (anche nel privato, visto che i due sono marito e moglie) formato da Mark Feldman e Sylvie Courvoisier.

Chris Corsano/Sylvie Courvoisier/Nate Wooley: Salt Task

Read "Salt Task" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I imagine the tracks for the inaugural meeting between these improvising musicians are presented to us in the order they were recorded. I say that because the music gives the impression it is undergoing the process of refinement as the recording progresses. Perhaps, as each of the individual tracks progresses.

But, like the musicians, ...

A dialogo con Andrea Massaria

Read "A dialogo con Andrea Massaria" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Nel 2009 intervistammo il chitarrista triestino Andrea Massaria, allora autore di alcuni dischi in trio e in quartetto, di genere abbastanza convenzionale ma di ottima fattura, che stava avvicinandosi a un universo per lui nuovo, fatto di sperimentazione e improvvisazione radicale, testimoniati dal CD con il Chladni Experiment Trio, 5053, e dalla partecipazione a una conduction ...
