Read "Echolocation" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Among today's leading guitarists fusing the power of rock and avant-garde jazz--a list that has to include Nels Cline, Marc Ribot, Mary Halvorson and Brandon Seabrook--Ava Mendoza may be the one with the strongest link to the punk tradition. All the evidence one needs is on Echolocation, a project by Revels, her close collaboration with bassist ...

Eri Yamamoto, Choral Chameleon: Goshu Ondo Suite

Read "Goshu Ondo Suite" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

La pianista e compositrice Eri Yamamoto, quarantotto anni all'epoca dell'incisione in oggetto (novembre 2018), equamente divisi fra il nativo Giappone (Osaka) e l'adottiva New York, persegue in questo ambizioso lavoro un'ideale compenetrazione fra universo jazzistico, classico e popolare.

William Parker - Tra stazioni spaziali maya ed inverni pittorici

Read "William Parker - Tra stazioni spaziali maya ed inverni pittorici" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

William Parker è da considerarsi personaggio centrale negli sviluppi della musica afroamericana degli ultimi cinquant'anni sia nelle vesti di compositore, formidabile contrabbassista e multistrumentista che di agitatore culturale, poeta, saggista, educatore. Oltre centocinquanta titoli a proprio nome con ogni sorta di formazione (dal solo all'orchestra) e centinaia di partecipazioni come collaboratore ne certificano la statura di ...

William Parker: Mayan Space Station & Painters Winter

Read "William Parker: Mayan Space Station & Painters Winter" reviewed by Eric Gudas

"Ungentrified funk": that's how William Parker characterized the music of his Mayan Space Station ensemble after a Zoom-transmitted performance—plus Q&A session— in the summer of 2020.

William Parker: Mayan Space Station

Read "Mayan Space Station" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The immediate impact of the recording Mayan Space Station is that of a sheer out-and-out physicality presented by this music. While it is obvious the musicians—guitarist Ava Mendoza, bassist William Parker and drummer Gerald Cleaver—are engaged in the nonautomatic operation of their respective musical instruments, their Herculean efforts are conspicuous. While rarely recognized, credit must be ...
