Jay Clayton, Jerry Granelli: Alone Together

Read "Alone Together" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


L'età avanzata non aveva spento in Jay Clayton e Jerry Granelli (purtroppo deceduto di recente) la voglia di riprendere la lunga collaborazione in performance liberamente improvvisate. Il sodalizio tra la cantante e il batterista risale alla fine degli anni settanta, quando Collin Walcott suggerì a Granelli d'invitare la Clayton al workshop musicale che tenevano al Naropa ...

Sir Stevie: Jammin' on Stevie Wonder - Part 1

Read "Sir Stevie: Jammin' on Stevie Wonder - Part 1" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

To mark the 70th birthday of ...

Oregon: Lantern

Read "Lantern" reviewed by John Kelman


Despite having to replace percussionists a couple of times since its inception in 1970, Oregon's otherwise consistent lineup of reed/woodwind multi-instrumentalist Paul McCandless, guitarist/pianist/primary composer Ralph Towner and double bassist Glen Moore remained unchanged for forty-five years--surely some kind of record in the jazz world. And with current drummer/percussionist Mark Walker joining the group for 1997's ...

Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist

Read "Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Ralph Towner is a rather atypical figure in the vast world of jazz guitar. His instruments of choice are the classical guitar, which when he started, in the '60s, was played almost exclusively by guitarists related to Brazilian music like Charlie Byrd, Laurindo Almeida and Bola Sete, and the 12-string guitar, very common in the folk ...
