Andrea Massaria: The Spring of My Life e Zappa Speech Project

Read "Andrea Massaria: The Spring of My Life e Zappa Speech Project" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Nella sua inesausta ricerca di nuovi modi di sviluppare la musica improvvisata, ricerca che passa inevitabilmente anche dalla collaborazione con nuovi partner, il chitarrista triestino Andrea Massaria incontra qui due situazioni piuttosto diverse l'una dall'altra, entrambe tuttavia assai inusuali per progettualità e costruzione della musica. Andrea Massaria, Clementine Gasser The Spring of ...

In memoriam: Alessandro Giachero

Read "In memoriam: Alessandro Giachero" reviewed by Francesco Martinelli

Only with a very heavy heart one can write an obituary for a young friend and great musician who left this world suddenly, prematurely and unjustly, leaving his colleagues and pupils, but above all his family, in mourning. It will hopefully be useful to leave a trace of his musical contributions and a lead for future ...

Tomeka Reid Quartet, Piero Bittolo Bon & Ratchet Orchestra

Read "Tomeka Reid Quartet, Piero Bittolo Bon & Ratchet Orchestra" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

I guess this episode could be termed a “friendly" one, as it just so happens a number of my musical friends have new releases out for sampling, so I dove right in. Toronto drummer Nick Fraser has an excellent album out with Tony Malaby and Kris Davis and they open the show. Violist Ig Henneman from ...

Gordon Grdina, Karl Berger & Jason Kao Hwang, Byron Asher & Colin Hinton

Read "Gordon Grdina, Karl Berger & Jason Kao Hwang, Byron Asher & Colin Hinton" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Vancouver's Gordon Grdina is masterfully adept at guitar and oud, so that flexibility leads to many possibilities for playing opportunities, from jazz and improv settings to his world music group, Haram. This episode finds Grdina opening things up with music from two very recent recordings: Skin and Bones (with Matthew Shipp and Mark Helias) and Cooper's ...

Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz

Read "Miles Davis' Rubberband, Kuba Wiecek Trio & KaMaSz" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Two rather contrasting recordings highlight this episode: Dan Weiss with his trio augmented by a second bassist and Rubberband, the once-shelved and now revived release from Miles Davis which was recorded after he had left Columbia. On Weiss' album, he displays the chops (often with heavy rock influences) that make him such a high-in-demand player, while ...

Pipeline 8: Prayer

Read "Prayer" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

È strano, ma quando si pensa a Steve Lacy viene in mente soprattutto il suo sax soprano, con il suo incomparabile suono, e subito dopo il modo asciutto e ipnotico in cui interpretava, spesso in solitudine, il songbook del suo grande Maestro Thelonious Monk; solo a questo punto si ricorda che Lacy è stato anche un ...

Don Cherry Tribute, Four Visions, Alberto Pinton & Earprint

Read "Don Cherry Tribute, Four Visions, Alberto Pinton & Earprint" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

The late trumpeter Don Cherry had and still has a huge influence on the creative music scene, from his work with Ornette, Coltrane, Old And New Dreams, CODONA, and Carla Bley to his exploration and fusion of world music. That influence led Italian drummer/percussionist, Cristiano Calcagnile, to form an ensemble to perform a tribute to Cherry ...

Cristiano Calcagnile Multikulti Ensemble: The Gift of Togetherness

Read "The Gift of Togetherness" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Tre intensi giorni di registrazione a Mestre nell'ottobre 2015, davano vita all'album Multikulti Cherry On ( Caligola, 2017), tra le cose migliori uscite in quel periodo. L'ensemble allestito da Cristiano Calcagnile nasceva sotto il segno di Don Cherry e la musica suonata era un riuscitissimo omaggio ad un artista visionario e fuori dagli schemi.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
