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 ...

Augusto Pirodda: No Comment

Read "No Comment" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

A standard comic-strip theme presents the wise man sitting cross-legged on a remote mountain top, contemplating life, the human condition, God. A searcher from the temporal world below climbs the mountain and asks the wise man a question of profound importance. The last frame of the strip is a joke, the wise man's answer that steers ...

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.
