MUSICIAN Born:

Gato Barbieri

Mystical yet fiery, passionately romantic yet supremely cool…You hear those first few notes from that instantly recognizable tenor and know you’re in the unique musical world of Gato Barbieri. Beginning professionally as a teenager playing alto sax in Buenos Aires clubs, Barbieri’s enduring career has covered virtually the entire jazz landscape, from free jazz (with trumpeter Don Cherry in the mid-60s) and avante garde to film scoring and his ultimate embrace of Latin music throughout the 70s and 80s. He began playing tenor with his own band in the late 50s and moved to Rome with his Italian born first wife Michelle in 1962, where he began collaborating with Cherry

Richard Howell: Coming Of Age - MANGAKU

Read "Coming Of Age - MANGAKU" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Il sassofonista Richard Howell è una personalità musicale piuttosto singolare: nativo di Los Angeles, attivo dagli anni Ottanta a San Francisco, ha avuto per maestri sassofonisti come Justo Almario, specialista di latin jazz, e Don Myrick, degli Earth, Wind and Fire, per poi suonare con Don Cherry e Charlie Haden, ma anche con cantanti blues e ...

Franco D'Andrea: Il pianoforte come sintesi di colori

Read "Franco D'Andrea: Il pianoforte come sintesi di colori" reviewed by Paolo Marra

Franco D'Andrea non è certo un musicista abituato a guardarsi indietro nonostante ormai da decenni rappresenti l'eccellenza del jazz italiano con più di duecento dischi incisi e svariati premi vinti. Il segreto di questa longevità artistica è da ritrovare nella sua capacità di aggiornare continuamente il suo lessico pianistico composto da riferimenti antropologici alla musica africana ...

Burton Greene / Damon Smith / Ra Kalam Bob Moses: Life’s Intense Mystery

Read "Life’s Intense Mystery" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Let's give credit to whomever assembled this swinging free-improvisation trio. Sometimes, no, invariably, all great improvised music results from the reciprocal nature of the musicians: not something done in response to another (although it can be) but by some subconscious agreement made by the players. A fine example is Life's Intense Mystery by the trio of ...

Jørgen Mathisen´s Instant Light: Mayhall’s Object

Read "Mayhall’s Object" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un coltranismo piuttosto spinto, non solo nell'approccio strumentale del leader ma anche proprio nell'idea musicale globale dell'intero quartetto, caratterizza questo nuovo lavoro del trentaquattrenne sassofonista norvegese Jørgen Mathisen. Ciò fin dalla titletrack che apre il disco, unico brano con Mathisen al soprano, senza che peraltro si deroghi di un millimetro da tale postulato nei successivi cinque ...
