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.

Curtis Sydnor: Materials and Their Destiny

Read "Materials and Their Destiny" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

L'ispirazione per Materials and Their Destiny arriva da un testo di filosofia dell'architettura di Louis Sullivan, padre del Movimento Moderno negli Stati Uniti. L'idea è quella di un viaggio sincronizzato tra l'improvvisazione della band sul palco e l'animazione di linee, traiettorie, forme, proiettata su di un grande schermo. Idea non nuova ma affascinante, in relazione alla ...

Read "Follow The Stick" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Bobby Avey: Authority Melts From Me

Read "Authority Melts From Me" reviewed by Dave Wayne

It's no mean feat for a creative artist to translate historical events--much less those marred by centuries of slavery, political struggles, foreign occupation (most notably by the US) and the endless oppression of a chronically poor underclass wracked by disease--into a cogent, coherent musical statement. Recent events on the island nation of Haiti have included a ...

Brenda Earle Stokes: Right About Now

Read "Right About Now" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Is Brenda Earle Stokes primarily a vocalist, a composer, or a pianist? That's an unanswerable question if ever there was one. The marketplace typically forces artists to list their chief credential first, making it easier to categorize and pigeonhole them, but that's a problem for Stokes; she's equally talented in all three areas, as demonstrated throughout ...
