Giancarlo Tossani e il Questionario di Proust

Read "Giancarlo Tossani e il Questionario di Proust" reviewed by Paolo Peviani


Il tratto principale della mia musica Emozione e riflessione, equilibrio tra scrittura e improvvisazione (così dicono...). La qualità che desidero nei musicisti che suonano con me Affinità musicale e umana, cos'altro sennò? Come musicista, il momento in cui sono stato più felice Quando ho scoperto che si poteva ...

Mirna Bogdanovic: Confrontation

Read "Confrontation" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Arrestingly postmodern and warmly familiar in the same space, Mirna Bogdanović's fourth release, Confrontation, stops just short of dismantling contemporary jazz and pop in favor of retaining those elements that tickle the memory's nostalgia receptors in such a way that the listener recognises the music as compelling, while at the same time not being able to ...

Pat Metheny: Road to the Sun

Read "Road to the Sun" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


In quasi mezzo secolo di carriera professionistica Pat Metheny ha attraversato svariati territori musicali, in una miriade di formazioni diverse, diventando fin da giovanissimo un punto di riferimento importante per la chitarra contemporanea, con il suo stile immediatamente riconoscibile che lo ha fatto diventare un beniamino del pubblico e della critica. Ancora oggi continua a mettersi ...

Stefano Travaglini: Monk - Fifteen Piano Reflections

Read "Monk - Fifteen Piano Reflections" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Italian composer and pianist Stefano Travaglini advanced his standing in the crowded field of solo piano improvisers with Ellipse (Notami Jazz, 2017). That album of (mostly) extemporaneous creations exhibited Travaglini's capacity for coalescing abstraction and lyricism in often understated ways. Trained as a classical pianist under Arvo Part and Vince Mendoza, he benefitted from their broad ...

Issie Barratt's Interchange: Donna's Secret

Read "Donna's Secret" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Put simply, this is a truly beautiful record. It features eight very different compositions by eight different women composers, including three from outside the band. In other hands, the diversity of styles might have left more an impression of a compilation than of a coherent, integrated programme of music. But that is certainly not the case ...

Stefano Travaglini - Massimiliano Coclite: The Long Line

Read "The Long Line" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Italian pianists Stefano Travaglini and Massimiliano Coclite team up for a varied session of original improvisations and those influenced by composers of historical consequence. Both artists are coming from inspiring releases, Travaglini with his solo album Ellipse (Notami Jazz, 2017) and Coclite with his namesake quartet on Strange People (Odardek Records, 2018). These two musicians have ...

Rodrigo Tavares: Congo

Read "Congo" reviewed by Chris May


Guitarist Rodrigo Tavares cites his primary influences as bossa nova and tropicália pioneers João Gilberto, Dorival Caymmi, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Chico Buarque, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Tom Zé. But you would not guess it from Congo, a collection of lyrical instrumentals which reference Brazil only in passing, and which consciously avoid any recognisable sense of ...

Stefano Travaglini: Ellipse

Read "Ellipse" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Italy's Stefano Travaglini--primarily a composer and pianist--is wildly diverse as an instrumentalist and composer. He has performed on oboe and bass guitar, studied with Estonian composer Arvo Pärt and American jazz and classical composer Vince Mendoza. Touring throughout four continents, Travaglini has demonstrated impressive proficiency in both jazz and classical genres though he is equally at ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
