Lorena Favot: Landscapes

Read "Landscapes" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il nuovo disco di Lorena Favot conferma le brillanti doti della cantante friulana, a suo agio tanto nel vocalizzare e improvvisare in scat quanto nel calarsi in ruoli più tradizionali.

The Jan Lundgren Trio: Landscapes

Read "Landscapes" reviewed by Jack Bowers
