Craig Taborn: Daylight Ghosts

Rosa Brunello Y Los Fermentos: Upright Tales

Read "Upright Tales" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

La tradizione del contrabbassista-leader è una consuetudine che nel jazz ha dato frutti sapidi. Da Charles Mingus a Charlie Haden e Dave Holland, fino ai più recenti Chris Lightcap, Ben Allison e Michael Formanek, ma senza dimenticare la grande forza creativa di William Parker, il contrabbassista-leader ha sempre dato un'impronta forte all'impostazione di gruppi originali.

Read "Beginning of A Memory" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It's easy to imagine the phone calls, drummer Matt Wilson made, using his best imitation of Elwood from the 1980 Blues Brothers movie, “We're putting the band back together, we're on a mission from God." And like that, current members and alumni of the drummer's bands: the Matt Wilson Quartet, Arts & Crafts, and Christmas Tree-O ...
