Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet: Jersey

Read "Jersey" reviewed by Vic Albani

Ho conosciuto Mark Guiliana una decina di anni fa in un ristorante di Parigi al tempo di una delle sue prime tante collaborazioni con Dhafer Youssef e (in quel caso) con Tigran Hamasyan. A parte l'ininfluente curiosità ovviamente “italiana" di quello strano cognome che sembrava frutto di un classico errore di trascrizione dell'ufficio anagrafe di Floram ...

Fano Jazz by the Sea
Fano
Varie sedi
22-30.7.2017

Quest'anno c'era qualcosa di nuovo sotto il sole, anzi sul mare di Fano. Una prima disorientante sfasatura, di natura visiva, rispetto al passato era costituita dall'assenza, sui programmi di sala e sul palco dei concerti, della storica immagine che riproduceva una ...

Tigran Hamasyan, Arve Henriksen, Eivind Aarset, Jan Bang: Atmosphères

Read "Atmosphères" reviewed by Rosarita Crisafi

Un suggestivo doppio album per l'etichetta ECM mostra il volto misterioso e affascinante di un quartetto di fuoriclasse. In primis l'enfant prodige Tigran Hamasyan, giovane pianista americano di origine armena di eccezionale talento capace di scavalcare con agilità le barriere del jazz. Assieme a Hamasyan alcune vecchie conoscenze dell'etichetta discografica tedesca, il musicista e produttore discografico ...

Joachim Kühn/Chris Jennings/Eric Schaefer: Beauty & Truth

Read "Beauty & Truth" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

German born pianist/composer Joachim Kühn is not without a global following though it's a shame that he is not more widely recognized in the US. Having spent much of his professional life in Paris, he did occupy some time between, residing in California. His musical interests are as broad as the roster of top-tier artists he ...

Il meglio del 2016 secondo Luca Vitali

Read "Il meglio del 2016 secondo Luca Vitali" reviewed by Luca Vitali

Un 2016 iniziato sotto la stella nera di Bowie e la sua dipartita inimmaginabile e, verrebbe da dire, teatrale... come sempre. Blackstar per mille ragioni è il mio disco dell'anno, ma l'uomo che cadde sulla Terra è tornato su Marte e ci guarda da una diversa prospettiva...

Quaggiù, è stata un'annata niente male che ...

Nenad Georgievski's Best Releases of 2016

Read "Nenad Georgievski's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

There is a poem by a Russian poet Velimir Khlebnikov titled “When Horses Die" that I came across to by accident. It goes like “When horses die they breathe when grasses die, they wither, when suns die they go out, and when people die they sing songs." For many musicians, the year 2016 was final and ...

Read "Atmosphères" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

This quartet came together at the suggestion of ECM label head Manfred Eicher after hearing a Punkt Festival recording of pianist Tigran Hamasyan in duo with live sampling musician Jan Bang. The addition of trumpeter Arve Henriksen and guitarist Eivind Aarset increased the textural possibilities, as well as providing a solo trumpet voice. Hamasyan was preparing ...
