Sara Gazarek: Thirsty Ghost

Read "Thirsty Ghost" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Le vocalist emerse dopo il 2010 (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Jazzmeia Horn, Veronica Swift, Cyrille Aimée ecc...) hanno messo un po' in ombra quelle del decennio precedente come Kate McGarry, Gretchen Parlato e appunto Sara Gazarek. È piuttosto buffo che l'interprete californiana (nata a Seattle ma a losangelina dal 2000) continui a essere votata nel critics poll ...

MUSICIAN Born:

Shamus Dark

I've spent the last few years recording albums, making videos and performing in and around London, the far east and New York City. Most of the songs come from the 1930's, 40's and 50's, written by the great composers of the day; Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart, Hoagy Carmichael, Matt Dennis, Harold Arlen et al. But there are also songs by Elvis Costello and Joy Division. With the help of some great collaborating musicians and producers, I'm doing my best to bring some of these great old American songbook standards into the 21st century with the aid of digital technology.

Jose James: No Beginning No End

Read "No Beginning No End" reviewed by Enrique Turpin

Tal vez no sea intención de José James (Mineápolis, 1978) reemplazar a D'Angelo en el reinado del neo-soul que se empezó a fraguar a mediados de los años 90, pero puede que lo logre sin proponérselo. En su cuarto trabajo --y primero para Blue Note-- ha recuperado el testigo que seguía en el suelo a la ...
