Ferenc Snetberger: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Era solo questione di tempo prima che il chitarrista ungherese Ferenc Snetberger approdasse ai lidi ECM. Molte delle sue passate produzioni discografiche non avrebbero affatto sfigurato nel catalogo dell'etichetta bavarese, che finalmente lo può annoverare tra i suoi artisti con la pubblicazione di questo In Concert, registrazione di una sua esibizione in solo a Budapest nel ...

Ferenc Snetberger: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Hungarian classical guitarist Ferenc Snétberger makes his ECM debut with a live solo guitar recording, surely the most demanding and revealing format for any guitarist. His music is the product of diverse stylistic influences: starting with jazz, but then a strong classical music influence, followed by exposure to Brazilian, South American, and flamenco guitar music. Snétberger ...

Phil Haynes No Fast Food: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Disco doppio registrato dal vivo in due diverse occasioni nel giugno e nell'agosto del 2012, questo lavoro ha nel titolo del progetto, No Fast Food, un emblematico ancorchè metaforico programma: la musica è infatti lontanissima dall'essere preconfezionata e pronta ad essere consumata rapidamente senza attenzione ed è invece costruita attraverso la creativa interazione di un trio ...

Tingvall Trio: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

In principio fu l'Esbjörn Svenson Trio. Correva l'anno 1993, quando venne pubblicato il loro primo album When Everyone Has Gone. Nel giro di pochi anni divennero famosi in tutto il mondo. I meno lungimiranti (e purtroppo mi devo includere tra questi) pensarono che quel mix di jazz di facile accessibilità, rock e classica, che aveva dato successo all'E.S.T., sarebbe stato ...

Denny Zeitlin Trio: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The art of the trio--piano, bass and drums--is an especially challenging prospect when considering that all three instruments play an essentially rhythmic role in almost any form of music. Thus, utilizing the harmonic extent of those instruments precludes extraordinary understanding of the finite possibilities of each with a view to extending these into the realm of ...

Spheres Duo: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Michael Feldman

Nowadays the border between jazz and modern classical music is becoming narrower and actually vanishing. The Spheres Duo offers good proof, exploring a multicoloured sound and realizing extraordinary results from the unique linkage of piano, vibraphone and percussion. Arnon Zimra and Zvi Joffe met first at the Tel Aviv Music Academy in 1991, when they performed ...

Jean Luc Ponty: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Dennis Cook

There's a reason jazz-fusion has a bad reputation. It frequently takes the simple, graceful sway of group themes and solos and allows the latter to dominate in icky extended masturbatory excess. At the same time, the melodies are often an afterthought, an excuse for noodling and aimless technique demonstrations. Jean Luc Ponty once apprenticed with Frank ...

Gerry Mulligan Quartets: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Derek Taylor

Gerry Mulligan’s pianoless quartet with Chet Baker is commonly cited as an early artistic apogee in the careers of both its frontline participants. Less widely lauded, Mulligan’s other quartet with valve trombonist/pianist Bob Brookmeyer, which followed on the heels of the Baker association, was every bit as creatively prosperous and this pair of concerts reissued by ...

Martin Taylor: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by David Adler

Martin Taylor, the Django-inspired Englishman who shared many a stage with the late Stephane Grappelli, has developed one of the brightest, purest guitar tones in the business. At Pittsburgh’s Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild in 1998, Taylor showed off that tone in a solo setting, and this recording of the event is simply stunning. Jim Ohlschmidt’s liner notes ...
