Uwe Oberg, Frank Paul Schubert, Wilbert de Joode, Mark Sanders: Rope

Read "Rope" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Si è soliti definire l'improvvisazione senza rete, nelle sue manifestazioni più alte, come composizione istantanea, in tempo reale. Non è sempre così: ciò accade infatti quando chi abbraccia tale insidiosa pratica, intanto non dimentica mai questo assunto, cioè che trattasi di pratica insidiosa, da condurre con attenzione certosina e costante ascolto reciproco (salvo che l'improvvisatore non ...

Uwe Oberg - Frank Paul Schubert - Wilbert de Joode - Mark Sanders: Rope

Read "Rope" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

These upper-echelon European improvisers offer a grab bag of tasty treats in front of an audience at the Festival Just Music in Wiesbaden, Germany. This 2015 performance consists of three works, but the 35-minute opener “Drifter," is a tour de force amid a macrocosm of delicate phrasings, succinct shadings, ethereal background treatments and scorching, climactically driven ...

Simon Rose, Stefan Schultze: The Ten Thousand Things

Read "The Ten Thousand Things" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Il sassofonista londinese Simon Rose e il pianista tedesco (di Colonia) Stefan Schultze praticano un'improvvisazione ispida, anticonsolatoria per eccellenza, attraversata da un minimalismo qua e là fin troppo insistito, estenuato, con l'inevitabile conseguenza che il margine di comunicabilità con l'esterno (ascoltatore in primis) si stringe pericolosamente. È--lo diciamo subito, senza mezzi termini--il tipo d'improvvisazione (più o ...

Evan Parker - Paul Dunmall - Tony Bianco: Extremes

Read "Extremes" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

In the album notes, eminent drummer Tony Bianco advises that the various discourses of this program “were about the times we live in." It's a fitting correlation to the album moniker, featuring two legendary British improvisers, saxophonists Paul Dunmall and Evan Parker engaging in kinetic and at times, calamitous dialogues. Moreover, the Canadian label Red Toucan ...

Matthias Schubert: 9 Compositions for the Multiple Joy[ce] Ensemble

Read "9 Compositions for the Multiple Joy[ce] Ensemble" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Il tenorsassofonista tedesco Matthias Schubert, una trentina d'anni fa tra le maggiori promesse del jazz europeo (e come tale inserito in formazioni che in qualche modo ratificavano tale status), strada facendo--in realtà uscendo spesso e volentieri dal nostro cono di luce--si è avvicinato alla composizione pura, con risultati che questo CD, inciso a Colonia nel dicembre ...

Thomas Heberer, Achim Kaufmann: Knoten

Read "Knoten" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Inciso a Berlino a fine 2011, Knoten ci ripropone uno dei musicisti più interessanti della nuova scena jazzistica europea, Thomas Heberer, qui in duo col piano (anche preparato) di Achim Kaufmann, magari poco noto dalle nostre parti, ma che vanta pur sempre collaborazioni con Han Bennink, Mark Dresser, George Lewis, Steve Swallow, Paul Rutherford, Tomász Stanko, ...

Matthias Schubert: 9 Compositions for The Multiple Joy[ce] Ensemble

Read "9 Compositions for The Multiple Joy[ce] Ensemble" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Featuring an international cast, Matthias Schubert conducts a program that snugly resides in the avant-garde space. Each track is outlined in the liners, citing connotations, inspirations and homages, where it's up to the listener to connect the dots via his or her interpretations. It's a hybrid offering engineered with asymmetrical parts of classical, jazz improvisation, John ...

Alberto Braida and Giancarlo Locatelli recorded this album as part of the concert series In Viaggio #9 bis at Sala Vallaperti in Melzo, Italy. The two have played together in the past and have developed an understanding and chemistry that elevates their music. Each is credited with five compositions on this record with “Del Margine" being ...

Thomas Heberer's Clarino: Cookbook

Read "Cookbook" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

L'incorruttibilità di un'idea: il trio guidato dal trombettista tedesco Thomas Heberer, che come si notava recensendo il precedente Klippe rimanda a esperienze di jazz squisitamente da camera quali KoKoKo o il Contemporary The Threee & The Two di Shelly Manne con Giuffre e Shorty Rogers (The Three, ovviamente), riconferma capillarmente quanto espresso. Vale a dire una ...

Jan Klare's 1000: (Shoe)

Read "(Shoe)" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Inspiration can come from unexpected sources. For reed player Jan Klare, it sprung from the words of a musician who churned in him the desire to create music that was as palpable as an object made of leather or wood. Palpability can be physical as well as organic and if Klare was looking for the latter, ...
