Livio Minafra - pianista diversamente abile

Read "Livio Minafra - pianista diversamente abile" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Spesso, intervistando gli amici jazzisti, mi sono reso conto che parlano come suonano: le concatenazioni del loro linguaggio, la coloritura dei termini, le digressioni, la ponderatezza o la spontaneità delle considerazioni rappresentano la trasposizione in parole del loro mondo musicale. E questo è del tutto naturale e comprensibile perché una forte personalità nell'esternarsi si esprime sempre ...

Jan Zehrfeld: Heavy Jazz

Read "Jan Zehrfeld: Heavy Jazz" reviewed by Phillip Woolever

The German group Panzerballett may have a metal edge on much of their music, but there's no mistaking that by any rational judgment this is also a definitive jazz band. Fans can always count on unpredictably adventuresome twists to the standard form on classics like “Birdland" or “Take Five" amidst inspired originals.

Oregon: Lantern

Read "Lantern" reviewed by John Kelman

Despite having to replace percussionists a couple of times since its inception in 1970, Oregon's otherwise consistent lineup of reed/woodwind multi-instrumentalist Paul McCandless, guitarist/pianist/primary composer Ralph Towner and double bassist Glen Moore remained unchanged for forty-five years--surely some kind of record in the jazz world. And with current drummer/percussionist Mark Walker joining the group for 1997's ...
