resAUnance: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Highly emotional and ravishingly beautiful, Migration is a feast for the ears and heart. Performed by resAUnance, a cooperative quartet, which began as a trio comprised of vibraphonist/percussionist John Bacon, vocalist Esin Gündüz, pianist Michael McNeill with electric cellist Jonathan Golove added later, this combination of unique instrumentation and innovative musicians has created an astonishing multipart ...

Girls in Airports: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Secondo disco a nome del gruppo danese Girls In Airports, un quintetto di giovani musicisti privo di contrabbasso, con due sassofoni in front line, tastiere elettroniche e delle percussioni in stile orientale accanto alla batteria. La musica è curiosa ed eclettica, un jazz moderno che pesca in modo non troppo caratterizzato dal classico stile nordico fino ai ...

Girls in Airports: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The view of the world is not greater than the eyes of the beholder and it is easy to remain bound to a particular culture and musical tradition, trying to find safety in familiar sounds. Beauty, however, is often found in the unexpected and unknown and like true musical travelers; Danish group Girls in Airports has ...

Antonio Sanchez: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by Elliott Simon

Few young musicians have enough juice to attract both pianist Chick Corea and guitarist Pat Metheny to their debut release. Drummer Antonio Sanchez shows how with extraordinary artistry combined with exceptional technique on Migration. Saxophonists Chris Potter and David Sanchez can unquestionably blow bop and, along with bassist Scott Colley, they supply the necessary musicianship and ...

Antonio Sanchez: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Sorprende l’inizio. Un lungo brano di Chick Corea nel quale il pianista di Chelsea suona come da tempo non si era abituati a sentire, rimandandoci per intensità emotiva, arditezza e fluidità di fraseggio, ad un capolavoro come “Now He Sings, Now He Sobs“. Sorprende la combinazione di due tra i più formidabili tenoristi oggi in circolazione come Chris ...

Antonio Sanchez: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by Doug Collette

Antonio Sanchez' Migration overflows with a bracing jazz music that reinvigorates conventions and renews traditions. It bodes well for this extraordinary drummer's future as a bandleader and composer of note.



The freewheeling imagination with which a track such as “Ballade teems is a direct reflection of Sanchez' own playing style. Yet he ...

Antonio Sanchez: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by AAJ Staff

The desert has a story hidden in its eye. Many things take up its plot: the earth, the ever-changing sky, those that pass through it. Antonio Sanchez's debut, Migration, deftly evokes the life of the desert as an allegory for the journey within all of us.

Sanchez climbed to prominence in the Pat Metheny Group, whose ...

Antonio Sanchez: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by John Kelman

These days it seems that too many young artists are jumping into the fray as leaders too soon. They may have admirable technique, but they're often still searching for a voice, and would served to wait a little longer before taking that all-important leap. That's not the case with Antonio Sanchez. Since emerging in the late ...

Oriole: Migration

Read "Migration" reviewed by Chris May

An enchanting followup to Song For The Sleeping, Oriole's 2005 debut album, Migration finds guitarist Jonny Phillips' band once again blending exploratory, modern jazz improvisation with world music-inspired original compositions and unusual cross-cultural instrumentation. Brazilian, Venezuelan, Andalucian, Moorish, Cuban and African folk music traditions, experienced by the well-travelled Phillips at source, inform his gentle and lyrical ...
