Read "Sideways" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il chitarrista norvegese Jacob Young giunge al suo secondo album per l’etichetta ECM di Manfred Eicher e riprende il discorso iniziato con il precedente Evening Falls senza cambiare gli ingredienti della ricetta. La musica rimane crepuscolare e malinconica, pervasa da quella luce soffusa che solo il grande nord sa evocare con sincerità e intensità. Anche i compagni di ...
