Thollem McDonas: Meeting At The Parting Place

Read "Meeting At The Parting Place" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Coming at improvisational music from the classical realm, pianist Thollem McDonas remains resolutely outside of the main stream of the jazz world. Primarily inspired by, as he puts it in his liner notes to Meeting at the Parting Place, ..."European concert music from the Renaissance to the 20th Century and jazz, particularly of the '60s and ...

Save the Date - Maggio 2015

Read "Save the Date - Maggio 2015" reviewed by Luca Canini

Maggio, tempo di festival. Concerti e rassegne da un angolo all'altro dello Stivale. Piazze piene, cortili aperti, giardini sonanti: non c'è che da scegliere. In base ai gusti, alle distanze e agli impegni. Dal canto nostro, come ogni mese, ci permettiamo di caldeggiare le proposte più allettanti e fuori dagli schemi, lasciando da parte i cartelloni ...

Lukas Ligeti, Thollem McDonas: Imaginary Images

Read "Imaginary Images" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Entrambi prossimi alla cinquantina (Ligeti, figlio di György, la varcherà a giugno), i due performer qui riuniti si confrontano sul terreno della libera improvvisazione, pratica di cui d'altro canto il catalogo Leo pullula. Lo fanno attraverso pezzi tutto sommato brevi (dai tre ai nove minuti), il che--specificatamente in presenza di questa economia di mezzi--non può che ...

Hypercolor: Hypercolor

Read "Hypercolor" reviewed by Dave Wayne

The past few months have seen a stream of truly--and in some cases mind-bogglingly--wonderful guitar-centric power trio albums. Yet, the eponymous debut of the Brooklyn-based avant-jazz-rock band Hypercolor stands out, but not for the reasons you'd think. Sure, the trio consists of musical brainiacs James Ilgenfritz and Lukas Ligeti; genre omnivores whose own work and collaborations ...

Read "Thollem McDonas: The Beauty of Never Going Back Home" reviewed by Dave Wayne

What is often forgotten about improvised music is that it can come from anywhere. Though its history is inextricably intertwined with jazz, improvisation is part and parcel of a myriad of musical cultures. Pianist and composer Thollem McDonas is not just aware of this fact, it is part of his daily existence. About 10 years ago, ...

Lukas Ligeti: Pattern Time

Read "Pattern Time" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Secondo una filosofia estetica assai tipica dei batteristi-leader, la musica di questo lavoro rivela immediatamente uno scheletro fortemente ancorato all'elemento ritmico, sia nell'iniziale, rotondo “Without Prior Warning," che nel più iterativo, a tratti vagamente ipnotico “On Patterned Time" (in tale tessuto s'inserisce ottimamente il balafon). Il batterista e leader cui ci riferiamo è il viennese Lukas Ligeti, figlio ...
