Gregorian Chant – Melodies I & II

Read "Gregorian Chant – Melodies I & II" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

The Monastic Choir of St. Peter's Abbey, Solesmes, France was re-founded in 1833, following a period of latency.

Nuova Camerata: Chant

Read "Chant" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Free improvisation and contemporary music share many aspects, and the goal is the same--to avoid the beaten path of established musical idioms. Of course, sometimes they can both become actual styles, somewhat conforming to predictable strategies, but the most successful instances are those that keep the ambiguity intact, presenting the ideal of “new music" in its ...

Chant: Ma io ch'in questa lingua

Read "Ma io ch'in questa lingua" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Pinton - Kullhammar - Zetterberg - Nordeson: Chant

Read "Chant" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

A Coimbra, patria del fado “accademico," il festival jazz offre sempre una programmazione molto affine all'estetica dell'ottima etichetta portoghese Clean Feed, e in piena sintonia con il suo patron Pedro Costa. Non è la prima volta che formazioni di area svedese pubblicano per Clean Feed registrazioni live fatte al festival: accadde anche per il tenor sassofonista ...

Chant: Ma Io Ch'in Questa Lingua

Read "Ma Io Ch'in Questa Lingua" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Libero Mureddu, Cristiano Calcignile and Antonio Borghini, who have been together since 2000, find a unique realm for their music. They go through several levels and strata, never content to dwell on one plateau for any given length of time. They formulate, shape and delve into sounds with an instant tick of the imagination. And despite ...

Alberto Pinton / Jonas Kulhammar / Torbjorn Zetterberg / Kjell Nordeson: Chant

Read "Chant" reviewed by Stuart Broomer

This beefy quartet was drawn from existing Stockholm bands by baritone saxophonist/clarinetist Alberto Pinton at the suggestion of Clean Feed producer Pedro Costa. As bassist Torbjörn Zetterberg describes it in his liner note, it's half of his octet, half of tenor and baritone saxophonist Jonas Kullhammar's quartet, half of Kullhammar and drummer Kjell Nordeson's quartet Nacka ...
