LantarenVenster
Rotterdam

As a jazz enthusiast strolling along the beautiful waterfront of Rotterdam, encountering the name Van Gelder almost seems too good to be true. Even though in this case, the name is found on a truck and refers to a corporation that sells ...

Joris Teepe: In The Spirit Of Rashied Ali

Read "In The Spirit Of Rashied Ali" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In politics, as well as music, the revolutionaries rarely govern. With the exceptions of Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, Marion Brown, and Rashied Ali exemplify this theory. Thankfully, those fighting in the trenches alongside the insurgents, like Joris Teepe, are determined to keep their memory and spirit alive. The Dutch-born New York ...

Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente

Read "Duck Baker, un chitarrista tra passato e presente" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Duck Baker è un chitarrista abbastanza difficile da inquadrare; mentre la tecnica che usa è rigorosamente fingerstyle, la musica che compone e interpreta spazia lungo tutta la storia del jazz, dai vecchi standard al modale, dal blues al bebop, dallo swing al free. I suoi interessi si estendono inoltre a tutta la American Music, che interpreta ...

Orquesta del tiempo perdido: Stille

Read "Stille" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Orquesta del tiempo perdido è nome un po' altisonante, un po' nostalgico, un po' provocatorio, dietro al quale si cela la mente visionaria di Jeroen Kimman (già Brown vs. Brown), qui in veste di one-man-band (multistrumentista, produttore, ingegnere del suono), musicista tra i più originali della scena olandese. Certo in alcuni degli undici brani contenuti in ...

DUMItRIO: Proverbe

Read "Proverbe" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

DUMItRIO's debut album Future Nostalgia (Self-produced, 2014) combined elements of jazz, rock, classical, electronic and Eastern European music. Proverbe, while still rooted in diverse influences, is more focused and holds together in its consistency. This new collection generates a captivating atmosphere, informed by Romanian folk music and buttressed by the readings of native proverbs and unstructured ...

Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet

Read "Michael Moore: Live in Chicago / Felix Quartet" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Si aggiungono due nuovi lavori al sostanzioso catalogo Ramboy, l'etichetta autogestita dal sassofonista e clarinettista Michael Moore, fondata nel 1991, che documenta l'attività ampia e multiforme del musicista. La conoscenza di Moore è forse maggiormente legata alla sua presenza nel Clusone Trio, formazione nata nel 1988 con Ernst Reijseger al violoncello e Han Bennink alla batteria ...

Mats Eilertsen: Rubicon

Read "Rubicon" reviewed by John Kelman

It's no news to learn that we're the confluence of our many experiences: life, love, music....everything that we are comes from where we've been, what we've done, what we've experienced. That said, it doesn't mean that we can't move in completely new directions or try something completely foreign to us. Still, it's almost impossible to do ...
