Rain Sultanov: Putting Baku On The Jazz Map

Read "Rain Sultanov: Putting Baku On The Jazz Map" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The Baku Jazz Festival has been a labor of love for its founder and Artistic Director, Rain Sultanov. And, like most love stories, there have been a few bumps along the road. Thirteen editions in, however, the Baku Jazz Festival is well established as one of the highpoints of Azerbaijan's annual cultural calendar. It mightn't draw ...

Gochag Askarov: Sacred World of Azerbaijani Mugham

Read "Sacred World of Azerbaijani Mugham" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Superbi strumentali che s'insinuano negli interstizi lasciati liberi da una vocalità fin troppo invasiva (anche perché fisiologicamente monocorde, fra il lamentoso e il sussultorio): ecco cosa ci offre questo ennesimo album-tributo alla musica azera operato da Felmay. Fascino indiscutibile, e magari anche un po' di stanchezza all'ascolto di brani tutti di una certa consistenza (dagli otto ...

AA.VV: Azerbaijani Love Songs

Read "Azerbaijani Love Songs" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un gruppo di registrazioni effettuate fra il 2007 e il 2013 confluiscono in questo ulteriore album, a più mani, dedicato dalla Felmay alla musica azera. Nello specifico, sono qui di scena le love songs, con al centro, conseguentemente, l'elemento vocale. E a dispetto del fatto che gli esecutori varino quasi sempre di brano in brano (nonché ...

AA.VV.: Rhythms of Azerbaijani Dances

Read "Rhythms of Azerbaijani Dances" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Nell'ambito di una documentazione quanto mai capillare della musica azera, la Felmay raggiunge l'apice con questo bellissimo CD, dedicato alle musiche legate all'universo-danza.

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.
