Bobby Avey: Inhuman Wilderness

Read "Inhuman Wilderness" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Un trio che si allarga a quartetto in metà delle tracce interpreta Inhuman Wilderness, quinto lavoro a nome del trentaduenne pianista Bobby Avey, ancora poco noto da noi ma piuttosto affermato negli USA. Giustamente, si può dire ascoltando l'album, che ne documenta le idee musicali moderne e inquiete, ma anche la maestria alla tastiera.

Bobby Avey: Inhuman Wilderness

The failings and callousness of mankind have long served as muse and model for artists, but rarely have such negative stimuli yielded such powerful, probing, and positively mesmerizing work as what can be heard on Inhuman Wilderness.

Dave Wilson: There Was Never

Read "There Was Never" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Saxophonist Dave Wilson cuts an imposing figure on the cover of There Was Never, his fourth album in total and his first on the Zoho Music imprint. There's intensity fixed on his face, with eyes closed in concentration and embouchure set for attack. And then there's his tenor saxophone. It has a larger than life presence ...
