Mural: Shishi's Wish

Read "Shishi's Wish" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Prende il nome dal suo disco d'esordio, questo trio nippo-tedesco-cileno nato a New York nel 2015. Giunto al secondo album, Mural conferma la prospettiva trasversale, spaziando da momenti di marcata concitazione elettrica --una sorta di fusion rivisitata evidente in «Giacomo!» e in «Geronimo» --ad altri acusticamente riflessivi, venati di atmosfere folk.

I tratti costanti ...

It boasted a starry line-up of British and American virtuosos including Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor and Tony Coe from the ...

Craig Brann: Lineage

Read "Lineage" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The cream always rises to the top. That might sound like a trite statement (and one definitely not applicable to pop music), but is one that consistently holds true in jazz. So it follows that guitarist Craig Brann, in a discipline in which one cannot fake it to make it, would then be the crème de ...

Mike Clark & Delbert Bump: Retro Report

Read "Retro Report" reviewed by Kevin Press

Go ahead. Judge this album by its cover. That 1970-something Ford grill tells you everything you need to know. It's big, funky and stamped Made In USA.

These 11 cuts are Hammond-organ groovy. Which is to say Delbert Bump groovy. And the only thing better than a Bump groove is one paired with former ...
