Moaning, Whistling, Sighing and Other Jazz Sounds

Read "Moaning, Whistling, Sighing and Other Jazz Sounds" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Jazz--the quintessential open door genre--has a capacity to beautifully integrate all kinds of sources. From music from faraway places to compositions written and instruments used for completely different genres. When it comes to the human voice, jazz has shown an uncanny openness to its endless possibilities finding a musical role for all sorts of non verbal ...

Carlos Franzetti: Ricordare

Read "Ricordare" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Il titolo del CD e il suo brano manifesto sono emblematici nell'esplicare il debito artistico di Carlos Franzetti per Ennio Morricone. Al di là dell'affinità con le colonne sonore italiane e francesi, il settantenne musicista argentino possiede ben altre e più rigogliose frecce al suo arco. Lo testimonia una poliedrica cifra espressiva, che spazia dal tango ...

Jerome Wilson's Best Releases Of 2018

Read "Jerome Wilson's Best Releases Of 2018" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

It may be unwieldy to keep a large jazz ensemble together for economic reasons but this year was still full of outstanding big band recordings, whether done through commissions, arrangers working with established orchestras or even actual working ensembles. Several of the releases on my list are examples of that. Also this year had the usual ...

1. Puro Huayno, Antologia de la musica Peruana (Wisepack ltd, 2000)

For a few years I've been in love with Hauyno music from Bolivia and Peru, to a point where I sometimes have to force myself to put something else on; it's addicting. It's like its own musical language, and I will never be ...

1. Puro Huayno, Antologia de la musica Peruana (Wisepack ltd, 2000).
È da qualche anno che sono innamorato della musica Hauyno dalla Bolivia e dal Perù a tal punto che devo sforzarmi per ascoltare qualcosa d'altro, in pratica sono dipendente. Musica con un proprio linguaggio e con una componente ritmica difficile da tradurre. Questa compilation ...

Gary Alesbrook: Jazz In Movies

Read "Jazz In Movies" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

This excellent debut by British trumpeter Gary Alesbrook is notable for four reasons: 1) he's leaping straight from well-known session musician to frontman; 2) he's been playing for 33 years, mostly for high profile, non-jazz bands in the UK like The Super Fuzzy Animals and The Scissor Sisters; 3) while eclectic in his taste and experience, ...

Umbria Jazz 2018 ha chiuso i battenti: 1 milione 450 mila euro di incassi da biglietti e merchandising con 35.000 paganti. Numeri invidiabili, da capogiro, anche se un bilancio ragionato fra entrate e uscite richiederebbe un'analisi molto più approfondita.
Come abbiamo anticipato nella ...

Michael Leonhart: Surfing on an Orchestral Wave

Read "Michael Leonhart: Surfing on an Orchestral Wave" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

If one were to find an answer to the age-old “nature or nurture" debate, s/he would have to look no further than The Painted Lady Suite [Sunnyside Records]. Listening to the stunning debut album by the Michael Leonhart Orchestra makes it clear that major achievements are only possible when nature and nurture are well integrated and ...

Enrico Pieranunzi, André Ceccarelli, Diego Imbert: Monsieur Claude. A Travel with Claude Debussy

Read "Monsieur Claude. A Travel with Claude Debussy" reviewed by Luca Casarotti

È nota la consuetudine di Enrico Pieranunzi con le monografie, segno d'una concezione virtuosa del disco, come esito di una progettualità coerente, e non come mera necessità editoriale: basti pensare ai lavori dedicati a Duke Ellington (Duke's Dream, 2017), a Domenico Scarlatti (Plays Domenico Scarlatti, 2007), a Ennio Morricone (Play Morricone, 2 voll., 2001-2002), a Bill ...

Leni Stern Recordings
2018

If it's an exaggeration to say that Leni Stern's gone native after her life-shaping time in Senegal, it's probably not by much. 3 isn't the result of merely studying and and learning a few new forms, but an unrestrained immersion in the life and ...
