Frank Carlberg Large Ensemble: Monk Dreams, Hallucinations And Nightmares

Read "Monk Dreams, Hallucinations And Nightmares" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il “pianeta" Monk è stato talmente esplorato negli ultimi decenni che è difficile attendersi qualcosa d'originalmente significativo. Con quest'album orchestrale --la dimensione meno usata nelle revisitazioni del songbook monkiano -il pianista e compositore Frank Carlberg c'è però riuscito: anche se ogni brano s'ispira a un tema di Thelonious, l'elaborazione è personale e non deve stupire se ...

Alessandro Fadini: A Dark and Stormy Day

Read "A Dark and Stormy Day" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Amongst the firehose-like blast of CDs and downloads aimed at me last summer was A Dark and Stormy Day, the debut album by Italian-born pianist and composer Alessandro Fadini. A new name to me, Fadini was educated to be a mathematician and is apparently self-taught on piano. Don't let that fool you, though. A protégé of ...

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

Read "Inhuman Wilderness" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

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.

This fifth album from pianist Bobby Avey provides extraordinarily intense and thoughtful musical commentary on topics ...

John O’ Gallagher: The Honeycomb

Read "The Honeycomb" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Da Charlie Parker ad Ornette Coleman, fino al jazz groove contemporaneo. Si potrebbe definire così l'itinerario del viaggio sonoro proposto dall'alto sassofonista newyorchese John O'Gallagher. Il free-bop messo in atto dal suo affiatatissimo trio è sintetizzato da “Extralogical Railman," che rielabora un celebre standard ("Relaxin' at Camarillo") di Bird. Del nucleo tematico preesistente viene cambiato tutto ...
