Ballister: Znachki Stilyag

Read "Znachki Stilyag" reviewed by John Sharpe

Although the title, composed of two unrelated Russian words chosen because they sounded good, doesn't have a meaning, the contents not only sound good but carry rather more weight. The high intensity free jazz trio Ballister comprises reedman Dave Rempis, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, three of the finest proponents on their instruments in ...

Ballister: Dave Rempis, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Paal Nilssen-Love: Worse for the Wear

Read "Worse for the Wear" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Cinque dischi in cinque anni non sono male per un trio dalla spiccata identità free, con innesti rumoristico/elettronici. Nato nel 2011, Ballister è formato dal sassofonista Dave Rempis, dal violocellista Fred Lonberg-Holm e dal batterista norvegese Paal Nilssen-Love, tutti partner -a vario titolo -di Ken Vandermark e dei massimi strumentisti radicali che fanno base ...

Ballister: Mechanism

Read "Mechanism" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Come il precedente Bastard String (autoprodotto) anche Mechanisms è registrato dal vivo e non potrebbe essere diversamente perché risulta veramente difficile pensare di vedere imprigionata in uno studio di registrazione l'energia sviluppata da questo trio. Tre straordinari improvvisatori, dal comune denominatore prestigioso come Ken Vandermark, danno vita ad un set che scatena una furia apparentemente incontrollata, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
