Read "Stolen Moments" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Oliver Nelson incise il magistrale The Blues and the Abstract Truth in una sola session nel febbraio 1961 con sette strumentisti lui compreso. Aveva 29 anni e guidava una formazione strepitosa con Eric Dolphy, Freddie Hubbard, George Barrow in front line e una ritmica comprendente Bill Evans, Paul Chambers e Roy Haynes. Quei nomi e la ...

Ryan Keberle & Catharsis: Find the Common, Shine a Light

Read "Find the Common, Shine a Light" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Pur confermando l'avvincente impronta stilistica evidenziata nei tre album precedenti, il pianoless quintet di Ryan Keberle presenta un lavoro leggermente disorganico e musicalmente più superficiale dei precedenti, forse perchè distolto da un intento politico (contestare l'elezione presidenziale statunitense del 2016). Il percorso musicale raccoglie due famosi temi della contestazione giovanile degli anni sessanta («The Times They ...

Ryan Keberle, Frank Woeste: Reverso: Suite Ravel

Read "Reverso: Suite Ravel" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Ryan Keberle, trentasettenne trombonista dell'Indiana, e Frank Woeste, quarantaduenne pianista di Hannover, il primo con alle spalle rendez-vous piuttosto variopinti (da David Bowie a Maria Schneider, da Wynton Marsalis a Woody Allen), il secondo ormai da una ventina d'anni inserito nel milieu jazzistico francese, si abbinano a una coppia di musicisti che sembrano in qualche modo ...

Read "Film Noir, a Jazz Investigation" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

In search of clues about the key components that make it possible to build the mood, the suspense, the intrigue, the build-up of tension, the adrenaline rush and the release in a good film noir with a jazz soundtrack, or in the jazz soundtrack of an imaginary film noir.

John Vanore: Stolen Moments

Read "Stolen Moments" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

For the majority of jazz fans, the entire career of Oliver Nelson is summed up in one composition, “Stolen Moments" which makes as much sense as Duke Ellington being known for nothing except “Mood Indigo." Though he died at the very premature age of 43, Nelson built a substantial body of work in the jazz and ...
