Donny McCaslin: Blow

Read "Blow" reviewed by Roger Farbey

At first listen, Blow sounds more like a rock album than a jazz one. The catchy “What About The Body" could arguably be mistaken for one of King Crimson's more vituperative numbers featuring Adrian Belew. Ryan Dahle's emotionally-charged vocals are equally at the forefront of the explosive “Club Kidd." But the selection also includes three instrumental ...

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 ...

Read "The Painted Lady Suite" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

A trent'anni esatti dalla scomparsa di Gil Evans, la sua lezione orchestrale rivive e si alimenta di nuove suggestioni. Il sorprendente e straordinario debutto della Michael Leonhart Orchestra rinnova un'estetica che in questi decenni ha ispirato Maria Schneider, in parte Darcy James Argue e alimentato la ricerca filologica e la rielaborazione di Ryan Truesdell.
