Anders Jormin: Poems for Orchestra

Read "Poems for Orchestra" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Suggestivo e inusuale lavoro del contrabbassista svedese Anders Jormin, uno dei grandi interpreti scandinavi dello strumento, questo Poems for Orchestra mette in musica una serie di poesie dedicate alla natura, avvalendosi della Bohusiän Big Band e, come solisti, della cantante svedese Lena Willemark—ben nota per i suoi lavori in equilibrio tra folk, improvvisazione e contemporanea, editi ...

AP6C Alberto Pinton Sestetto Contemporaneo: Layers

Read "Layers" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un sestetto dalle geometrie indiscutibilmente inusuali sta al centro di questo nuovo, ancora una volta ottimo, lavoro del veneziano (ma da tempo immemorabile svedese d'adozione) Alberto Pinton, che si destreggia fra sax baritono, clarinetti e flauti vari determinando (ma non è una regola fissa) le dinamiche dei nove brani che compongono l'album, tutti a sua firma ...

Read "Joseph Benzola, Liebman/Rudolph/Drake, Tom Kessler and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Canadian saxophonist and flautist Anna Webber has seen her star rising since settling in New York. She's become a highly regarded member of the creative improvisation scene there, and each recording of her own compositions becomes more impressive. With her septet she tackles a number of homages to some of her favourite 20th century composers' percussion ...

Alberto Pinton: Opus Facere

Read "Opus Facere" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Attivo in Svezia dal 1985, il sassofonista veneziano Alberto Pinton occupa una posizione di rilievo nel jazz scandinavo d'avanguardia, per il suo ruolo di leader (con questa e altre formazioni) che per le collaborazioni con vari organici. Quest'incisione segue il live giapponese pubblicato lo scorso anno (Live in Japan Wildcat House) dov'era protagonista lo ...
