Read "En Corps Generation" reviewed by John Sharpe

The eponymous debut En Corps (Dark Tree, 2012) by the French triumvirate of pianist Eve Risser, bassist Benjamin Duboc and drummer Edward Perraud made several year-end lists, and Génération belongs in the same category.

Manolo Cabras

1. Roberto Dani, Drama (stella nera, 2009)

Sono pochi gli artisti che riescono a esprimersi in maniera così naturale in solo. Un disco tridimensionale!!!!!

2. Edward Vesala, Lumi (ECM, 1987)

Per gli amanti dell'ECM anni '80. Un progetto decisamente originale con un'orchestrazione di ampio spettro e atipica. Divertente.

Léandre - Delbecq - Houle: 14 rue Paul Forte, Paris

Read "14 rue Paul Forte, Paris" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Dice Kafka che “il libro deve essere un rompighiaccio, per spezzare il mare gelato dentro di noi." Questa musica è un rompighiaccio. Ma è anche un bisturi, una torcia, un occhio che esplora, un urlo. Una voce. Tre voci. Che si accostano, si ascoltano, si mescolano, si avvinghiano. Chi ascolta resta sospeso, colpito, stupito da tale ...

Benoit Delbecq 3: Ink

Read "Ink" reviewed by Glenn Astarita
