Zlatko Kaućić: Diversity

Read "Diversity" reviewed by Mark Corroto

This 5-CD box Diversity was produced to honor Slovenian percussionist Zlatko Kaučič's 40 years in music. It is many things, but what it is not, is a career retrospective. How could it be? For quite awhile the drummer was a nomad, moving to Barcelona in 1976, then Amsterdam where he absorbed the new Dutch swing. His ...

Riverloam Trio: Live At The Alchemia

Read "Live At The Alchemia" reviewed by John Sharpe

Recorded at Krakow's legendary jazz club, Live At The Alchemia constitutes the third outing from what has become a perfectly-balanced unit, following the eponymous Riverloam Trio (NoBusiness, 2012) and Inem Gortn (FMR, 2014). Although, traditionally, Polish reedman Mikolaj Trzaska might be seen as the apex of a musical pyramid, supported by the solid foundation provided by ...

Peter Brötzmann, Steve Swell, Paal Nilssen-Love: Live In Tel Aviv

Read "Live In Tel Aviv" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Un altro tassello si aggiunge alla già corposa discografia del sassofonista tedesco Peter Brötzmann, il terzo insieme a questo trio con il trombone di Steve Swell e la batteria di Paal Nilssen-Love.

Rigorosamente dal vivo, catturato nel momento in cui questa materia incandescente viene lavorata dai tre musicisti.

Un rituale sonoro ...

Francesco Martinelli: European Jazz - Tales of Etruscan Vases, Arias And Resistance

Read "Francesco Martinelli: European Jazz - Tales of Etruscan Vases, Arias And Resistance" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Few have attempted to tackle the history of European jazz in any meaningful way. That's hardly surprising given the size of the task. How do you address the jazz history of over forty countries in a succinct and logical manner?

How do you manage to throw light on all the major personalities at the ...

Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Per chi non se ne fosse accorto, stiamo vivendo un momento musicale straordinario, fatto di ricerca senza confini, ibridazioni linguistiche e condivisione di esperienze spesso agli antipodi--insomma diametralmente opposto al periodo storico, in cui l'ignoranza miope delle nuove destre vorrebbe tenerci divisi, ancorati ad un'idea identitaria ormai superata dalla storia.
Dal jazz più classico alle ...

Big in Japan, Part 3: Satoko Fujii’s Year of Living Dangerously

Read "Big in Japan, Part 3: Satoko Fujii’s Year of Living Dangerously" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In the first two parts of this series we looked at the origins of jazz in Japan and its adherence to the American style of composing, arranging and playing. Though jazz has been popular in Japan from the earliest days, it was--as in the United States--hardly met with unanimous approval in a country that prized classical ...

Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival 2018

Read "Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival 2018" reviewed by John Sharpe

The third Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival took place over six separate days in October, but the undoubted centerpiece was the day long series of concerts held in St. Luke's Church on Saturday 13 October in front of a healthy-sized audience. Adventurous programming embraced a range of styles which taken together gave a well-rounded definition of what ...

Alexander von Schlippenbach / Globe Unity Orchestra: Globe Unity - 50 Years

Read "Globe Unity - 50 Years" reviewed by John Sharpe

The internet. Mobile phones. Social media. The Fall of the Berlin Wall. A lot's happened over the last 50 years. When pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach first assembled the Globe Unity Orchestra in the autumn of 1966, John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk still walked the earth. The GUO was one of the first expressions of ...

Not Two...But Twenty! Festival
Wlen, Poland
September 21-23, 2018

Intro There are some things worth celebrating in style, one of them being marked persistence in the face of adversity. That pretty much describes the continued existence of any jazz record label in these straitened times. To mark its 20th ...

Frode Gjerstad: Bop Stop

Read "Bop Stop" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

A cavallo tra gli anni Settanta e Ottanta, quando nella scena jazz norvegese la presenza dell'etichetta germanica Ecm stimolava e indirizzava le scelte di tanti musicisti, il sassofonista Frode Gjerstad si volgeva a un altro panorama, cercando il contatto con le odissee procellose dell'improvvisazione storica europea, volgendosi soprattutto all'area britannica. Qui collaborò con grandi maestri che ...
