Papanosh
The Yellow House
Janakkala, FInland
July 29, 2018

If one believes that music originated in primitive wo/man's appreciation of the natural rhythms occurring in nature, then what better environment to witness live music than a shady dell, sheltered from the sun as well as the adjacent road by a solid ...

Jazz & Poetry

Read "Jazz & Poetry" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

The best of jazz is aural poetry. The best of poetry swings and grooves. So it's not surprising that jazz and poetry have had a long and fruitful synergy.

We decided to explore intriguing collaborations between jazz musicians and poets, from the icons of the Beat Generation to Amiri Baraka, from Federico Garcia ...

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 ...

Papanosh: A Chicken in a Bottle

Read "A Chicken in a Bottle" reviewed by Anthony Shaw

Papanosh originate in the northern French city of Rouen and have been together over 10 years. This second CD of somewhat discordant, deconstructed hard bop is another example of their concept of an imagined folklore, a new musical tradition created together by musicians and listeners in their shared synergy. It involves widely varied music that, with its sudden ...

Roy Nathanson: Nearness And You, Duets and Improvisations

Read "Nearness And You, Duets and Improvisations" reviewed by Mark Corroto

On saxophonist Roy Nathanson's 2009 disc Subway Moon (Yellowbird), he covers the R&B song “Love Train" a huge hit for The O'Jays in 1973. Nathanson's version was a relaxed take on the age old wish for world peace. By decelerating the music he accelerated the intimacy. He utilizes the same device on Nearness Of You, an ...

Roy Nathanson's Sotto Voce: Complicated Day

Read "Complicated Day" reviewed by Paolo Peviani

Roy Nathanson, Curtis Fowlkes, Sam Bardfeld... Non sono i Jazz Passengers, peraltro recentemente “Reunited," ma poco ci manca. Sono i Sotto Voce, band di cui Roy Nathanson è unico leader, e che si muove su territori simili a quelli dei Jazz Passengers ma con maggiore enfasi sull'orecchiabilità, sulle voci, sulla parola (tutti i brani dell'album sono ...
