Giovanni Mirabassi: Live In Germany

Read "Live In Germany" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Registrazione dal vivo effettuata ai Bauer Studios di Ludwigsburg, questo disco documenta un triplo omaggio tributato da Giovanni Mirabassi ad altrettante grandi cantanti: Edith Piaf, Mercedes Sosa ed Ella Fitzgerald. Si tratta senza dubbio di un progetto pienamente nelle corde del pianista, perugino ma francese d'adozione, che può lanciarsi in calde e raffinate rivisitazioni di alcuni ...

Il fascino sostenibile della leggerezza #2

Read "Il fascino sostenibile della leggerezza #2" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

In poche parole ci riproviamo: a tagliare una seconda volta in orizzontale, grosso modo a distanza di un semestre, una fetta di produzione discografica, a conti fatti dischi arrivati nell'ultimo paio di mesi (ma in due o tre casi usciti in precedenza), per soppesare quanto il titolo di quel primo “sopralluogo" (a tesi) (clicca qui per ...

Edith Piaf: 1915-2015

Read "1915-2015" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

2015 is the centenary of one of the best-loved, most charismatic singers of the twentieth century. For some that singer is Billie Holiday, for others it's Frank Sinatra: but for many more, especially in the French-speaking world, it's the legendary Edith Piaf. 1915-2015, a vinyl-only Best Of collection, establishes the case for Piaf's status beyond doubt.

Mauro Ottolini Sousaphonix: Musica per una società senza pensieri

Read "Musica per una società senza pensieri" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Ci sono musicisti che travalicano generi ed etichette, anzi vanno aldilà anche del genere “musica," perché--per esuberanza, fantasia, radicamento del loro senso dell'arte entro il più vasto universo sociale e umano--necesitano di una progettualità che coinvolge oniricamente altri scenari. È il caso di Mauro Ottolini, che con le sue formazioni non manca mai di eseguire progetti ...
