Denis Fournier / Nicole Mitchell: Watershed

Read "Watershed" reviewed by John Sharpe

Flautist Nicole Mitchell has found a supportive outlet in the Paris-based Rogue Art imprint, with her past outings including Anaya (2009), Emerald Hills (2010), The Ethiopian Princess Meets The Tantric Priest (2012) and Arc Of O (2012), and she is the most well-known name on Watershed.

Satoko Fujii Min-Yoh Ensemble: Watershed

Read "Watershed" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

C'è da domandarsi se nella carriera della pianista giapponese questo disco rappresenti una tappa mirata ma isolata, oppure un'evoluzione consapevole e duratura, in grado di proiettarsi nel futuro. Infatti la musica scaturisce da un approfondimento del Min-Yoh, cioè della musica folklorica giapponese “che, suonata da dilettanti ed arrangiata collettivamente dagli esecutori, presenta una bellezza derivata dalla ...

Read "Watershed" reviewed by Phil DiPietro

The piano trio format remains an enduring tradition in jazz, with relatively new faces like Caine, Meldhau, Iverson, Taborn, Colligan, Svennsson and Pilc picking up the evolutionary gauntlet thrown down by the Rushmore-deserving progenitors of the art form: McCoy, Herbie, Keith and Bill.
