After two successive recordings and tours with an identical lineup--a first in its now 10-year history--the SFJAZZ Collective once again undergoes some minor personnel shifts. More important, however, is that Live SFJAZZ Center 2013: The Music of Chick Corea & New Compositions comes a full two years after ...

Clayton Brothers: The New Song and Dance

Read "The New Song and Dance" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nei nove brani di The New Song and Dance i Clayton Brothers mettono in mostra la loro voglia di esplorare - e rielaborare, facendole proprie - le atmosfere degli anni in cui il jazz richiamava folle danzanti. Le intenzioni sono chiare fin dai due temi d'apertura: “Cha Cha Charleston," un brano ancheggiante dove la tromba di un sempre ispirato e ...
