Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Niccolò Lucarelli

Il jazz di scuola europea si caratterizza per una maggior vicinanza alla musica classica e per certe atmosfere placide e riflessive, dove la melodia sembra attaccarsi alla pelle dell'ascoltatore come vento del deserto, e aprire una finestra sull'indagine della propria interiorità. Non fa eccezione The Invariant, ultima fatica del pianista tedesco Benedikt Jahnel, autore degli otto ...

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Sometimes there's no substitute for experience, as demonstrated by this trio as it celebrates its tenth anniversary as a working unit. Last heard on Equilibrium (ECM, 2012), it's an international group that met through a series of lucky coincidences: Berlin-based pianist/composer Benedikt Jahnel is joined by Spanish bassist Antonio Miguel and Canadian drummer Owen Howard. Jahnel ...

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The Invariant, as in a “constant," is a fitting title for Benedikt Jahnel Trio who have recorded as a unit since their debut Modular Concepts (Material label, 2008) and later moving on to the ECM label with Equilibrium (2012). Jahnel, a musician and mathematician in Berlin, has a deep appreciation for complex similarities between the two ...

Brooklyn Jazz Underground: Seven by Seven

Read "Seven by Seven" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Settetto molto compatto, solido, il Brooklyn Jazz Underground pratica un jazz non particolarmente avventuroso ma comunque ben congegnato e condotto, col ruolo-guida che passa dalla voce (persino iperpresente nella prima parte dell'album) alla tromba, al sax tenore. Ci sono delle ripetizioni e un asservimento al canto a volte persino eccessivo, quasi supino, tuttavia il lavoro prende ...
