Becca Stevens

Always reaching, always expanding, Becca Stevens reinvents herself once again with Regina.

As for her muse for the album, Stevens explains, “Regina is like an alter ego, or an imaginary friend

Thana Alexa: ONA

Read "ONA" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Ci giunge con un po' di ritardo questo secondo disco della talentuosa vocalist e compositrice Thana Alexa, ma va assolutamente considerato. Anche questo, come già il debutto Ode to Heroes, è un tributo: dalle figure musicali che l'hanno influenzata siamo passati a una celebrazione del genere femminile e al ruolo—spesso sottovalutato—che svolgono nel mondo.

Steve Haines and The Third Floor Orchestra: Steve Haines and The Third Floor Orchestra

Read "Steve Haines and The Third Floor Orchestra" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Dare al lettore—nel breve spazio di una recensione—l'idea del contenuto e del valore (in un giudizio ovviamente soggettivo) di un album spinge a usare tutte quelle classificazioni nate per orientarci. In poche parole, creare delle mappe è utile ma se il territorio è ricco di elementi diversi si rischia di usare etichette fuorvianti. ...

Becca Stevens, Elan Mehler: Pallet On Your Floor

Read "Pallet On Your Floor" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Tra le più sensibili e originali cantanti contemporanee, la trentacinquenne Becca Stevens sa esprimersi egregiamente in ogni contesto (come testimonia anche il recente Wonderbloom d'impronta synth-pop) ma quando affronta le ballad mette in luce le sue massime qualità espressive, risultando insuperabile. Non esiste vocalist della sua generazione capace di esprimersi con analoga purezza ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
