Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2012

Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2012" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Transcendent recordings don't come with a label identifying their magnificence, but they're easy to pick out. I had the honor and privilege of receiving, and listening to, more than 375 CDs for review consideration in 2012. I reviewed approximately 165 of them and these were the 15 that rose above the rest. Some are bold and ...

Ablaye Cissoko - Volker Goetze: Amanké Dionti

Read "Amanké Dionti" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Cosa potrebbero avere in comune un suonatore di kora senegalese, Ablaye Cissoko, e un trombettista tedesco, Volker Goetze?

Ablaye Cissoko / Volker Goetze: Amanke Dionti

Read "Amanke Dionti" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Ablaye Cissoko + Volker Goetze: Sira

Read "Sira" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Music has long transcended geographical and cultural barriers to forge new sounds. That bond is manifested once more in the collaboration between vocalist and kora player Ablaye Cissoko and trumpeter Volker Goetze. Cissoko and Goetze met in 2001 at the African-European Jazz Orchestra rehearsals in Senegal, where they were to open for Youssou N'Dour. ...

Ablaye Cissoko & Volker Goetze: Sira

Read "Sira" reviewed by Martin Gladu

It is often said an image is worth a thousand words. Well, now that the concept of the album cover has been relegated to mere packets of metadata--at best experienced via the tiniest screen-mounted, portable music devices--it appears rather sad that fans will likely miss out on Ablaye Cissoko and Volker Goetze's cover of Sira.
