Norma Winstone: Descansado - Songs For Films

Read "Descansado - Songs For Films" reviewed by John Ephland

Norma Winstone has had her current trio since 2001, long enough to have released five albums (four for ECM). Descansado, a celebration of cinema through the language of music, is that fourth CD, and it's a winner from start to finish. The album's title derives from a Armando Trovajoli composition, used in Italian director Vittorio De ...

Read "Miniatures" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Italian pianist Glauco Venier presents a delicate program of “Music for piano and percussion" on his first solo album for ECM. The approach came out of music Venier made for a documentary film about sculptor Giorgio Celiberti, which involved piano plus playing on “sonorous sculptures" (metal sculptures designed to also have sound qualities). For this recording ...

Glauco Venier si racconta con Miniatures

Read "Glauco Venier si racconta con Miniatures" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Miniatures è un piano solo. Ma è anche qualcosa di più, per il modo in cui sono state inserite nel tessuto narrativo le sculture sonore azionate dallo stesso Glauco Venier e per come sono saldate al pensiero che sorregge la musica. La musica respira anche attraverso il dialogo tra pianoforte e sculture sonore, che tracciano una ...

Read "Streamflow" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Streamflow is a very strong debut recording from guitarist Marco Bolfelli and his almost telepathic trio partners Simone Serafini on bass and Igor Checchini on drums. Reedman Klaus Gesing (bass clarinet and soprano sax), one of Bolfelli's mentors, appears on four of the eleven tracks.

Bolfelli gets composer credits as well for all tracks ...

The German multi-reedist's work with these honed ensembles polishes only a few of his diverse facets, which reflect his equal footing in classical and jazz training, as well as beyond. Whether in the ...
