Read "Estonian Suite: Live In Tallinn" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Berklee educated Spanish pianist and composer Iñaki Sandoval moved to Estonia from Barcelona to take up a post as Director of PhD studies at the Viljandi Culture Academy, University of Tartu. The move from the warm and sunny south of Europe to the no-less-beautiful but somewhat colder Baltic state seems to have kick started a period ...

Nate Birkey: Rome

Read "Rome" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer

With this listenable and relaxed album, trumpeter Nate Birkey joins with four excellent musicians he hooked up with while playing in Italy to deliver a set of mostly ballads in his signature style with introspective improvising, empathic warmth, and minimal vibrato. His playing here is reminiscent of Bix Beiderbecke, one of Chet Baker's formative influences. The ...

We Four at Dazzle

We Four
Dazzle
Denver, CO
October 21, 2017

The majority of Twentieth Century jazz was represented on stage at Dazzle Saturday night. Either the players were there, in person, or they were merely one degree of separation from the key action and the dominant personalities. History lessons can be nice, but ...

Nearly five decades have passed since John McLaughlin set foot in America as a relatively unknown musician to join the fusion band Lifetime, with the great drummer Tony Williams and equally great organist Larry Young.

Dan Tepfer Trio: Eleven Cages; Judy Niemack with Dan Tepfer: Listening to You

Read "Dan Tepfer Trio: Eleven Cages; Judy Niemack with Dan Tepfer: Listening to You" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dan Tepfer s'è messo in luce da un decennio con eccellenti lavori da leader (dai trii jazz all'esecuzione delle Goldberg Variations) e con prestigiose collaborazioni: ricordiamo il duo con Lee Konitz, il sestetto con Billy Hart, il trio con quest'ultimo e Gary Peacock.
In queste due ultime incisioni il pianista trentacinquenne evidenzia l'alto livello di ...

Manolo Cabras

Read "Manolo Cabras" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Roberto Dani, Drama (stella nera, 2009)

Sono pochi gli artisti che riescono a esprimersi in maniera così naturale in solo. Un disco tridimensionale!!!!!

2. Edward Vesala, Lumi (ECM, 1987)

Per gli amanti dell'ECM anni '80. Un progetto decisamente originale con un'orchestrazione di ampio spettro e atipica. Divertente.

Il 25 gennaio di quest'anno la comunità jazzistica ...
