Based in Charlotte, NC., he was a member of a power-pop unit known as The Ravelers. Brown is a multi-instrumentalist who unleashes his third solo venture with an enticing ...

Travis & Fripp: Between the Silence

Read "Between the Silence" reviewed by John Kelman

Having reformed in 2013 with its distinctive three-drummer frontline and hitting the road for the first time in over a decade the following year, King Crimson's guitarist/keyboardist and only remaining original member Robert Fripp is another example of a musician in his senior years maintaining a more active schedule than, perhaps, at any other time in ...

David Sylvian and Holger Czukay: Plight & Premonition / Flux & Mutability

Read "Plight & Premonition / Flux & Mutability" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Names like Brian Eno or Steve Roach may most readily come to mind where classic ambient recordings are concerned, but there has never been a shortage of similarly fascinating material floating around under the radar, quietly and unobtrusively waiting to reach the right ears. The pair of late-80s LPs by David Sylvian and Holger Czukay make ...

Michael Leonhart: The Painted Lady Suite

Read "The Painted Lady Suite" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

A trent'anni esatti dalla scomparsa di Gil Evans, la sua lezione orchestrale rivive e si alimenta di nuove suggestioni. Il sorprendente e straordinario debutto della Michael Leonhart Orchestra rinnova un'estetica che in questi decenni ha ispirato Maria Schneider, in parte Darcy James Argue e alimentato la ricerca filologica e la rielaborazione di Ryan Truesdell.

Giovanni Guidi Salida
Parco della Musica
Roma
19.05.2018

Il nuovo progetto inedito in quartetto del pianista Giovanni Guidi, denominato 'Salida,' era atteso con molta curiosità, sia per il livello dei nomi coinvolti che per la inconsueta formazione strumentale con doppie tastiere. Per presentarlo al pubblico, ma anche per rodarlo e ...

SUSS: Ghost Box

Read "Ghost Box" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The members of the band SUSS describe the music on their album Ghost Box as “psychedelic ambient country instrumentals." Fair enough, but ambient music fans will certainly recognize the sound from the country-influenced tracks on ambient pioneer Brian Eno's Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks (E.G. Records, 1983)--featuring Daniel Lanois' pedal steel guitar playing--as well as Lanois albums ...
