Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist

Read "Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Ralph Towner is a rather atypical figure in the vast world of jazz guitar. His instruments of choice are the classical guitar, which when he started, in the '60s, was played almost exclusively by guitarists related to Brazilian music like Charlie Byrd, Laurindo Almeida and Bola Sete, and the 12-string guitar, very common in the folk ...

Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2016

Read "Geno Thackara's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Geno Thackara

I always say it when recapping every year, and it's been truer than ever for me since I was fortunate to join All About Jazz at the start of 2016: there's always too much great stuff to take in. There are always too many albums we don't get around to during the year and too little ...

Mark Sullivan's Best Releases of 2016

Read "Mark Sullivan's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

So many reviews this year, in so many genres, that I've split them into two categories--"Jazz" and “Latin, World & Experimental"--in response to the feeling that I was trying to compare apples to oranges. They're presented in more or less chronological order, and the guiding principle was whether I had a clear memory of the recording ...

Wolfgang Muthspiel: Rising Grace

Read "Rising Grace" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel made a big splash early in his career, playing with vibraphonist Gary Burton and recording for PolyGram Records (including 1990's The Promise, produced by Burton). Since founding his own label Material Records in 2000 he has had a somewhat lower profile, although in addition to a number of his projects the label ...

Karl Van Deun & Ruben Machtelinckx: Shapes

Read "Shapes" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Young Belgian guitarist Ruben Machtelinckx has already had an active recording career, especially with his quartet and the duo Linus. His recordings have become progressively more acoustic and ever more freely improvised. Guitarist Karl Van Deun was Ruben's teacher at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. His performing career has been sidelined by hearing problems, but he ...

Karl Van Deun & Ruben Machtelinckx: Shapes

Read "Shapes" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

In spite of his young age, Belgian guitarist Ruben Machtelinckx has already traversed a wide spectrum of musical expressions, and yet, while the textures are different, his records share a certain lyrical sensibility and the quality of dwelling in the moment.

On Shapes, Machtelinckx joins his former teacher Karl Van Deun to play ...

Lana (BZ)

Seguire il festival Lana Meets Jazz è come prendere una boccata d'aria fresca. Per la bellezza dei luoghi e delle montagne altoatesine, certamente. Ma anche per la presenza--sul palco e tra il pubblico -di numerosi bambini e adolescenti.
