Michael Mwenso, Uri Caine, Nérija, Tenor Triage & Other New Releases

Read "Michael Mwenso, Uri Caine, Nérija, Tenor Triage & Other New Releases" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Two hours of genre-defying, global, high-octane, music, with a special focus on socially engaged projects, Finnish bands, and charismatic artists whose music has a higher than average density of ideas, like Michael Mwenso and Frank Zappa (by way of the tribute paid to him by the Orchestre Franck Tortiller. It all starts with the much anticipated ...

Jazz em agosto

Resistenza e narrazioni.

Questo in sintesi il filo conduttore dell'edizione 2019 di Jazz em Agosto, in corso di svolgimento come sempre presso la fondazione Gulbenkian a Lisbona. Un'edizione “militante," dunque, sebbene non così originale come in altre occasioni, vista la ripresa di ...

Read "Live in Zürich" reviewed by John Sharpe

This ...

Microscopic Septet: Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down to Me, Jazz Passengers: Still Life with Troube, Papanosh: Chicken in a Bottle

Read "Microscopic Septet: Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down to Me, Jazz Passengers: Still Life with Troube, Papanosh: Chicken in a Bottle" reviewed by Vic Albani

Non credo che i puristi del caso si possano stupire di una recensione tripla che non vuole porre in contrapposizione tre lavori discografici afferenti ad una similare idea di base, bensì presentarli entro un unico pacchetto di “meraviglie contemporanee." Anche perché questi tre dischi potrebbero essere certamente acquistati ad occhi bendati quale brillante testimonianza di alcune ...

Elliott Sharp: Dialectrical

Read "Dialectrical" reviewed by John Sharpe

Dialectrical constitutes the third entry in the discography of Elliott Sharp's most jazz-focused outfit, following on from the eponymous debut Aggregat (Clean Feed, 2012), and subsequent Quintet (Clean Feed, 2013). Although perhaps best known for his idiosyncratic guitar work, Sharp here demonstrates his chops as an adept reedman, with a talented NYC crew on board. Special ...

Il programma della stagione 2015-2016 di Aperitivo in Concerto era, come sempre, ricco di proposte e musicisti interessanti. Un nome, però, svettava nettamente su tutti gli altri. Quello di Muhal Richard Abrams. Per la sua storia (ricordiamo che il pianista è ...
