Tra i flautisti italiani dediti alle musiche extracolte, Massimo De Mattia si distingue non solo per l'alta qualità artistica ma per la scelta di operare stabilmente nell'universo della libera improvvisazione. Una definizione che De Mattia trova impropria e che preferisce sostituire semplicemente con «musica contemporanea». Come dice in quest'intervista è una musica: che si rivela, si ...

Buddy Collette: Bossa Nova

Buddy Collette: Bossa Nova

I love “jazz samba"—bossa nova albums recorded by American jazz artists in the 1960s. The bossa nova, of course, dates back to Brazil in the late 1950s.

Saturday, April 22, was an unusually good day. It started, blessedly, when the president did not tweet out a series of early morning fabrications/accusations to befuddle the free world. And it could only get better from there: It was Earth Day! Scientists ...

Buddy Collette: Four Classic Albums

Read "Buddy Collette: Four Classic Albums" reviewed by David Rickert

Like many of his fellow West Coast musicians, Buddy Collette was proficient on multiple instruments. He could play alto and tenor sax, but tended toward the clarinet and the flute for most of his recording career.
