John Sharpe's Best Releases of 2020

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases of 2020" reviewed by John Sharpe

Read "Bop Stop" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


A cavallo tra gli anni Settanta e Ottanta, quando nella scena jazz norvegese la presenza dell'etichetta germanica Ecm stimolava e indirizzava le scelte di tanti musicisti, il sassofonista Frode Gjerstad si volgeva a un altro panorama, cercando il contatto con le odissee procellose dell'improvvisazione storica europea, volgendosi soprattutto all'area britannica.
