Emilia Vancini, Augusto Pirodda: And If You Fall, You Fall

Read "And If You Fall, You Fall" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Duetto tra musicisti nostrani che ormai da tempo vivono all'estero, questo breve album—mezz'ora scarsa di musica—è un fulgido esempio di come si possa ancora trattare del materiale tradizionale donandogli freschezza e originalità. Siamo infatti di fronte a un “semplice" duo tra voce femminile e pianoforte all'opera su un repertorio di notissimi standard; e tuttavia i protagonisti, ...

Masabumi Kikuchi Trio: Sunrise

Read "Sunrise" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Pianist Masabumi Kikuchi recorded a session with the late trumpeter Miles Davis in 1978 that was never released. Had it been, the Japanese musician could perhaps have been slung by Davis' Jovian presence/influence to greater fame. As it is, Kikuchi has maintained a career as an iconoclastic artist, collaborating with some of the best jazz players. ...

Augusto Pirodda: No Comment

Read "No Comment" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Partiamo da una banalità. Suonare con due leggende viventi come Gary Peacock e Paul Motian è il sogno di tutti i pianisti ( e non solo ). Per Augusto Pirodda, nato a Cagliari quarant'anni fa, il sogno è diventato realtà. Ma ascoltando No Comment, titolo quanto mai significativo, si ha l'impressione che i tre musicisti si ...

Intervista a Augusto Pirodda

Read "Intervista a Augusto Pirodda" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Nasce in una terra meravigliosa come la Sardegna, ricca di bellezze naturali così come di talentuosi musicisti, ma appena si presenta l'occasione fugge all'estero, precisamente in Olanda. Più o meno all'età di diciassette anni gli viene chiesto di formare una jazz band, lui accetta con entusiasmo ma domanda: “Cos'è il jazz?". In oltre vent'anni di carriera ...

Samuel Blaser: Consort in Motion

Read "Consort in Motion" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


There is something positively celestial about Consort in Motion. It's like listening to a soundtrack of the workings of a Jovian planetary system: a substantial mass in the middle (Samuel Blaser's trombone), orbiting moons and scatterings of interplanetary debris (bass and drums); and flashes and sparkles twinkling off of space dust (piano), with things making sense ...

Augusto Pirodda, with Paul Motian and Gary Peacock - No Comment (2011)

Augusto Pirodda, with Paul Motian and Gary Peacock - No Comment (2011)

Pianist Augusto Pirodda, on his fifth long player, plays with the melodic, insinuating sensitivity that belies his brief recording career. In fact, No Comment, put to tape in 2009 but just out on the German label Jazzwerkstatt, is often off-handedly bold in that way. The opener, “It Begins Like This," is actually the initial soundcheck performed ...
