Yuval Ron


Guitarist Yuval Ron performs original tunes which transcend the boundaries of any specific musical genre. Inspired by a crossover of modern Jazz-Rock icons and a host of many other contemporary artists from the Progressive Rock, Fusion, Metal and modern music genres, it is all well blended into an own fresh and distinct musical direction. The music features virtuosic performances of various compelling and colorful compositions, produced on top of a cinematic, orchestral, some say Sci-Fi film-like backgrounds, atmospheric soundscapes and various implanted sound effects drawing the listener into a total, electrifying experience. The players place a constant emphasis on harmonic richness, rhythmical sophistication and an extensive use of synthesizers, laptops and other electronic instruments

Kneebody: Anti-Hero

Read "Anti-Hero" reviewed by Vic Albani

Bene. Facciamo il punto. Sono anni che sostengo a piena voce come i Kneebody siano una delle vere, grandi realtà della musica moderna. Dunque persino ovvio che, nel mondo di oggi capace di fagocitare tutto con estrema leggerezza e ambiguità, il quintetto americano passi nel fiume galleggiando come tutto il resto. Ci sono ...

John Ellis: Evolution - Seeds and Streams

Read "Evolution - Seeds and Streams" reviewed by Phil Barnes

There's a temptation to assume with evolution that all of history has been leading to this point, that today's dominant species or situation will continue as such forever. Nonsense of course, think of the changes in the lifetimes of current generations and it's clear that evolution is not a defined end point but a dynamic, continuing ...

Blameful Isles: Strange But Not Entirely Unattractive

Read "Strange But Not Entirely Unattractive" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Essentially a one-man-band based in Sweden, Blameful Isles is one of many artists who are actively rediscovering and re-processing the sounds of the early jazz-rock movement of the 1970s. Overall, the ongoing re-vitalization of jazz-rock and fusion has been a really good thing. For audiences of a certain age, the mere sound of a real Fender ...

Cinematic Orchestra

Read "Cinematic Orchestra" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Auditorium - Roma - 10.06.2010 Nei suoi dieci anni e poco più di attività (il primo CD risale al 1999) non sono state molto frequenti le apparizioni nel nostro paese della Cinematic Orchestra, una delle formazioni più popolari in ambito nu jazz; era quindi molta l'attesa per questo ritorno, tanto da riempire quasi completamente la sala ...

Cinematic Orchestra: Ma Fleur

Read "Ma Fleur" reviewed by James Taylor

Cinematic Orchestra traverses that narrow divide between acoustic jazz and the electro-infused acid jazz of predecessors and contemporaries like St. Germain, Groove Collective and DJ Greyboy. But the Orchestra treads new ground with Ma Fleur. Jazz breaks become atmospheric compositions of grand proportions, soulful grooves become haunting melodies and the “orchestra of Cinematic's moniker becomes ever ...
