Read "Nomadic Nature" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Sin dalle prime note di contrabbasso, che mantiene un pedale e introducono “Paris," l'appassionato di Ornette Coleman esulta. Scorrono altre tracce -"L'ironie d'une Jolie Prisse De Téte," dove alberga una definizione sonora di tipo iberico, moderna e spavaldamente veloce, “Macanudo Man," una specie di funk sospeso tra la possibilità di farsi fusion e l'impossibilità di appiatirsi ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
